2020 was all about self-care, now 2021 is all about self-empowerment. New fragrances from Trussardi and narciso rodriguez are leading the way for the best designer perfumes empowering women this year and we are loving it.
When searching for the best designer perfumes, it can be overwhelming. There’s the classics, bestsellers, surprise trends popping up from TikTok (follow us!) then new arrivals… but if you’re looking for something to make you feel confident, sensual, free and powerful, this shortlist is for you.
Last year we collated some of our favourite empowering fragrances for International Women’s Day but the influx of new women’s perfumes that have arrived since then demands an update. As whispers of another Roaring 20s get louder, we are all focused on our newfound freedom and unstoppable dreams, which are exactly what the very best designer fragrances encourage…

Characterised by the strength and independence of the Italian female spirit, Trussardi Eau De Parfum is a Floral-Chypre fragrance for the modern woman in charge of her destiny.
The new ‘Eau De Parfum for iconic women’ opens with a bright fusion of Italian Tangerine and Neroli, introducing a robust Lavender heart offset by Jasmine Absolute which lays on an elegant velvet base of Patchouli, a Suede Accord and Violet Accord. The new Trussardi Eau De Parfum is the vibrant scent to embolden you to be your best.
The beloved narciso rodriguez for her is now intensified in the new for her MUSC NOIR, to celebrate the multifaceted power of femininity.
for her MUSC NOIR wraps the original’s unique Chypre Musk blend in further mystery with a Plum invitation, teasing the ultimately seductive base of Leathery Suede accords enveloped by the radiant heart notes of Heliotrope, Rose and White Cedar. It’s enticing, flirtatious and surprising, and a signature scent people will remember you by.
Givenchy revamped its truly Irresistible fragrance with the refreshing Irresistible Eau De Toilette for Spring 2021. The signature Rose scent has been liberated with a pairing of Orris and Blackcurrant, making the scent light and airy with an intoxicating fruity touch.
Yves Saint Laurent has brightened its award-winning YSL Libre with an Eau De Toilette. The original’s famous blend of Lavender and Orange Blossom is given new life with White Tea for a breezier affair, bringing a carefree twist without losing any of its edge.
Gucci Memoire by Gucci illuminates the individuality of our natural scents. Introducing a new Mineral Aromatic olfactive family, this unique fragrance is structured with Indian Coral Jasmine Petals, Precious Musks, Sandalwood, Cedarwood and the temptation of Vanilla. (P.S. It’s unisex – anyone can wear it.)
Carolina Herrera Good Girl is a modern classic. The sophisticated-sensual fragrance toys with a woman’s ‘good’ and ‘bad’ side, celebrating all of her alluring and mysterious charms with a contrasting floral heart and deliciously musky base, featuring Vanilla and Cashmere Wood.
