5 Luxurious Perfumes For The Effortless Girl + Giveaway -- The choice of perfume can say a lot about someone, but simply owning it can give off the vibe that you have your stuff together. I've put together a list of 5 effortless scents that will have you exude confidence and femininity. GIVEAWAY CLOSED! |


  1. Requiring or involving no effort; displaying no signs of effort; easy

I’m so in love with perfumes and things that smell good. I have a row of about 10 candles ready to light at any given moment for whenever I come home and unwind.

Unfortunately, you can’t light a candle in places outside of your home, so I enjoy taking the smells I love with me.

Just like with coffee table books and flowers, displaying perfume gives off the vibe that the wearer has their stuff together. They’re also nice because they intrigue other people’s senses and make you stand out amongst the crowd.

When it comes to perfumes, it’s incredible how it can instantly change my mood. Whenever I pick up a bottle, I feel like whatever vibe I’m trying to give off enhances.

With one spritz I can manage to be more confident, approachable, and alluring, without doing much of anything else. This is why I love perfumes. They’re so easy.

I’ve managed to collect some scents that I’ve loved over the years, and I’m excited to share them with you.

I have so many perfume ideas that I know you’ll love, that I’ve decided to create my first giveaway! More details at the end.

The thing about perfume that I love is that they’re so easy to use. They’re effortless yet make such a huge impact, and that’s exactly what being a Lazy Girl is all about.

Plus, this list includes scents that don’t smell like you’re trying too hard. I hate a scent that screams, “I’M WEARING PERFUME.” Keep it mysterious.

I’m going to share my top 5 perfumes and go into detail about their scent profile. Whether you’re at school, work, or out on the town, you can find perfumes on this list for virtually every vibe, occasion, and mood.

Note: Everything listed here and what’s included in the giveaway refers to the “Eau de Parfum” versions of these scents.

You can also purchase all of these through Sephora, which I LOVE, because you can always get a freebie with purchases over $25 if you’re a Beauty Insider. You can see the weekly freebies here.

1. Kat Von D – Saint

My most recent purchase is undoubtedly my favorite. It’s fresh, dreamy, and I’ve received SO many compliments when I wear it. This is my signature scent for sure, and would be perfect for everyday wear.

Here’s the scent profile from the website:

“This gourmand perfume fuses jasmine and Tiaré flower top notes with a delicious heart of mandarin, caramel, and sparkling Mirabelle plum. Vanilla, sandalwood, and creamy musk build to the romance of the fragrance…”

You can purchase it from Sephora here.

2. Thierry Mugler – Alien

I originally wanted this for the packaging alone, but this scent smells INCREDIBLE. Seriously, it’s such a unique scent that I’ve never smelled before. It’s mysterious, and as the name suggests, otherworldly.

On the rare occasion that I go out for an event, I wear this because it makes me feel confident and effortlessly cool.

Plus the packaging? Perfect for a February girl like myself (amethyst birthstone).

Here’s the scent profile from their website:

“Sambac jasmine, Cashmeran wood, amber gris”

You can purchase it from Sephora here.

3. Chanel – No. 5

As you can see from the picture I took, I used that bad boy up! By far one of my favorite scents. It’s a timeless classic for a reason. Plus it lasts absolutely forever, both the amount of product and scent.

I use this whenever I’m in the mood to be girly and fun. It’s such an iconic scent that those that are familiar will be able to recognize it right away.

I wore this out one time and got stopped by a woman who asked if I was specifically wearing Chanel No. 5. I felt like I was in a secret club. Like the Jeep Wave or Harley Two Finger Flip.

Here’s the scent profile from their website:

“This floral bouquet composed around May Rose and Jasmine features bright citrus top notes. Aldehydes create a unique presence while the smooth touch of Bourbon Vanilla leaves an incredibly sensual trail.”

You can purchase it from Sephora here.

4. Chloe – Love Story

An absolutely beautiful scent. I truly feel I belong in a famous Parisian café sitting at a table with white cloth and dim lighting.

Seriously though, this is THE date night scent. It’s luxurious and smells divine.

I love putting this on because other people love it too. I’ve received so many compliments while wearing this.

Here’s the scent profile from their website:

“A floral love story, the Maison’s fresh and sensual Eau de Parfum opens the heart with stephanotis jasmine — the flower of happiness — and seduces with luminous orange blossom notes.”

You can purchase it from Sephora here.

5. Kat Von D – Sinner

Last but not least, Saint’s “evil” twin. Sinner is such a seductive and sultry scent.

I feel strong and powerful when I wear this. It’s perfect for when you need to feel in charge on a night out.

You never know where this scent will take you because it gives off such strong vibes of empowerment. If you want to turn date night into something more or scare the heck out of men with your exuberant confidence, this is a go to.

Here’s the scent profile from their website:

“A little sweet, a little spicy, and undeniably fearless! Cinnamon spices up vanilla and white florals at the heart of the fragrance, while base notes of vetiver, patchouli, and wood form the deeper, darker nuances.”

You can purchase it from Sephora here.

      I’m glad you enjoyed! The best part about these scents is that you can easily find samples of these to try. I found a TON of other free perfume samples that I acquired over time and simply forgot about when I was packing for my move. I could easily do this post for samples alone lol.
