Author C. Joybell C. wrote: “You’re never fully dressed without perfume.” And she’s absolutely right. It is the finishing touch women adorn themselves with and, for some, it’s a personal signature they can’t live without. 

But choosing a perfume that works for you – and is pleasant enough to please the people around you, especially at work – can be tricky. You don’t want to smell ordinary, neither do you want to overwhelm everyone’s noses. Ange Gardien Paris’ Marie EDT ticks all the boxes when it comes to a fragrance that everyone will enjoy wearing – and smelling.

What It Is:

A light and feminine floral fragrance.

Its Claims:

An intoxicating and stylish scent that pays tribute to the fashion icon of French royalty, Marie Antoinette. 

Key Ingredients:

Fruity top notes of pear, blackcurrant and white peach, a floral heart of lily of the valley, white roses and peonies, and a warm dry down of clean musk and blond woods.

What Happened When We Used It:

This was pleasant, easy to wear and made a great everyday scent. In fact, it reminded us of the Britney Spears’ tune, I’m Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman – while it is feminine and floral, it is not cloying nor saccharine sweet. 

We found the scent very long-lasting too, lingering on our skin for more than four hours. In the office, colleagues commented on the fragrance, saying it was something they would wear too. A quick touch-up for date night was all that was needed in the evening for a boost of confidence. 

Overall, the scent was light, crisp and didn’t overpower our senses.  

We also liked the elegant packaging – a clear glass bottle with gold accents, which looked and felt luxurious in our hands.

Marie is also available in a coffret set ($148), which contains the fragrance and a hand cream formulated with shea butter to soften and pamper your skin.

Ange Gardien Paris Marie EDT ($140) is available at www.angegardienparis.com, Tangs Vivocity, Robinsons The Heeren and Raffles City, and Scentre at Marina Square
