If you’re like us—you know, the type that loves all gourmand perfumes and their rich, addictive, tantalizing notes, we suggest you stay with us for a while, because you’re in for a treat. We’re just about to round up the best honey perfumes, the ones that will stick to your senses and pamper you with their sweet nectar.
Honey perfumes are creating quite the buzz and it’s for all the right reasons. Unlike the other gourmand notes (looking at you, vanilla), honey accords aren’t overly and overtly sweet; their addition in the composition usually results in a fragrance with a slightly subdued sweetness that’s sensual and reminiscent of a golden hour, where its redolence has a Midas touch and turns everything into liquid gold.

Chloe is the perfect light, spring rose scent. One spritz brings a refreshing sensation of peony, lychee, and freesia, followed by a rich rose and magnolia combination dipped in a jar of honey. As the day wears, the scent lingers on the skin leaving traces of cedarwood and amber.

Imagine a romantic night under the stars, with champagne and sensuality galore. You’re high on love, and something deep inside you hints at an inkling that this will change your entire world, and you just let it be.
Translated into fragrance, it reads something like this: Sweet bourbon and honey are dripping over rose petals; this fragrance is as real and romantic as they come.

Those accustomed to Candy’s sweetness will find this perfume to be an outstanding fresh floral composition lightened by limoncello while the peppery musk lends it an added flirty sensuality. In other words, not as sweet as its big sisters.
Inspired by an imaginary flower that smells like candy or a bouquet of flowers standing on the counter of an ice cream shop in Italy, Candy Florale opens with a fresh, tongue-tingling limoncello sorbet. The opening note moves in a flirty and self-assured way, entertaining your senses until peony takes over.
Benzoin, musk, caramel, and honey await you in the dry down, evoking beauty and infinite possibilities, the cherry on the top. While the dry down is cheeky, it is nothing like the original Candy. Candy Florale is tame, soft, peppery, floral, and prominently musky perfume, trading the screaming trademark sweetness for warm and sensually floral tameness.

Original and imaginative, Carner’s El Born takes you straight to Picasso’s favorite artsy neighborhood in Barcelona.
You spritz on your pulse points and suddenly you’re in a jasmine garden when the wind shifts, and you smell sweet vanilla, musk, and wood wafting from every angle. The honey in the opening is just hinting at all the wonders that await you as the scent dries down and settles on your warm skin.
A perfume redolent of the creativity El Born is known for, you wear this when you crave an added dose of excitement.

Neroli by rag & bone starts with a silky layer of soft jasmine tea, pink pepper, and lemon. Underneath, neroli’s bright, orange citrus heart note rises, accented with plush orange blossom.
The jasmine tea and lemon prepare your palette for a softer texture and telegraph the heart’s soft, plush citrus.
The pink pepper’s fire contrasts the quilted feel of the orange notes. The dry down introduces the rich sweetness of both honey and Bourbon vanilla, and a shining musk note.
The lively musk supports the acidic zing of the citrus, while the honey and Bourbon vanilla allow the top notes and neroli heart to pop out vividly against their tempting fullness.
