A strawberry perfume could be just what your fragrance wardrobe is missing! The fruity formula often boasts juicy, full-bodied and sumptuous characteristics and goes hand in hand with other notes from the floral and gourmand families (hello, whipped cream!). So, if you’re wondering which perfume to pack for holiday or what to wear for Wimbledon (where strawberries and cream take centre stage!) check out 10 of our favourite strawberry scents.
1. Valentina by Valentino
Light, breezy days call for a delicate scent that leaves a lasting impression, which is precisely what you get with Valentina by Valentino. There’s something truly memorable about this strawberry and truffle-infused perfume; it’s elegant, sexy, and a true crowd pleaser!
2. La Panthere by Cartier
Not all berry-based perfumes are made to be light, delicate, and worn in the summer sun. Oh no, some are exuberant, opulent and oh so classy, like La Panthere by Cartier!

3. Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent
Strawberry leads the way with a strong and prominent presence in the beautiful and expressive Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent.

As far as strawberry scented perfumes go, this is a real showstopper!

The perfect pairing: strawberries & cream
As you know, no bowl of strawberries in the summer is complete without a dollop of fresh whipped cream! Layering these flavours work wonders for your tastebuds, but have you thought about layering their fragrant notes too?
Layering different scents, whether that be two perfumes or a perfume with a scented body product, allows you to create a unique scent that possibly no one has tried before! The trick to layering your fragrances, and getting it right, is matching fragrant notes that complement each other. For example, citrus and aromatic herbs. Or, in this case the freshness of strawberries with the silkiness of whipped cream!
