Apricot creates a warm, fruity, and sweet feeling to a fragrance which can be quite comforting. It’s often used in combination with Peach (my article on The Best Peach Perfumes) which can mask the nuance of the Apricot scent. This article outlines the best Apricot perfumes, where the Apricot fragrance note is clearly noticeable.
Cartier La Panthère Parfum
The Cartier La Panthère are a classy range of fragrances which have been released in the past ten years (not to be confused with a previous La Panthère range which Cartier discontinued a long time ago). The Parfum version of La Panthère is a warm Apricot scent which uses Osmanthus, a floral note which has Apricot tones, to exaggerate and let the Apricot be the star of the show. The base of the fragrance has a Chypre feeling; with Oakmoss and Patchouli. Cartier La Panthère Parfum is a heavily concentrated perfume with good lasting power.
Britney Spears Prerogative
Britney Spears Prerogative Eau de Parfum is a very clear, straight-up Apricot perfume. There are hints of Coffee and a woody Saffron which add an elegance to the fragrance, but predominantly it’s all about the Apricot.
Britney Spears has one of the most successful celebrity perfume ranges of all time, check out my article on her entire Fantasy perfume range.
Paco Rabanne Olympéa Legend
The Paco Rabanne Olympéa fragrances mainly have a strong salty Vanilla note. Olympéa Legend combines the signature Vanilla note with Apricot and Plum. This makes it the fruitiest in the Olympéa range and also one of the most popular.
Olympéa Legend has good lasting power, its an Eau de Parfum and works well with the complimentary Olympéa body products.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Daze
Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Daze has a lot of similarities with Britney Spears Prerogative. It’s predominantly an Apricot scent with a hint of Osmanthus to help support the fruitiness of the scent. It’s relatively light and so I recommend it for the summertime.
There are a lot of different versions of Marc Jacobs Daisy Love; check out my article on them all.
