Buying deodorants for pre-teen and teenage girls can be somewhat of a chore. That’s because parents have to balance the ever-changing preferences of the young woman with their ever-changing body chemistry. And to make things the situation even more difficult, some perfumers design their perfumes with candy scents that are too sweet or floral scents that are mixed with heavy doses of vanilla. All of this makes choosing a perfume for this age group extremely difficult.
It might be difficult to choose a perfume for a young woman in this age group, but it shouldn’t be impossible. That’s why we’ve taken to the task and have researched some of the best perfumes currently being produced for this age group. And what we’ve discovered are some truly exceptional perfumes, so without further ado, let us introduce the ten best perfumes for girls.
Best Perfumes For Girls

Its top notes include raspberry, pear and grapefruit notes, while its heart notes contain notes of roses and vanilla orchid.

This scent is feminine and sweet, and youthful and energetic as well. It’s a body mist that sprays on easily and has a soft sillage that doesn’t pronounce itself too loudly. This gives it a light and airy feel to it that isn’t too mature for younger girls but isn’t too young for older girls. Although it can be hard to differentiate this fragrance’s heart notes from their top or base notes because they all intermingle so well, it does produce a scent that’s unlike anything else. It smells like a combination of amber, violet, and mandarin, that’s been lightly mixed raspberry and melon notes. That makes it one of the best daytime fragrances for young girls and women.

6Katy Perry Meow Eau de Parfum
The fact that this perfume carries the name of Katy Perry and is contained in a pink opaque bottle that’s shaped like a cat, it’s no surprise that this perfume is extremely popular among girls.

Although most girls will probably outgrow this fragrance by the time they reach their pre-teen years, this perfume does have an interesting scent profile that’s worth talking about. Although many people would expect this perfume to be gimmicky, or to be a one-note wonder, it’s more complex than we thought it would be. In fact, it’s a wonderful combination of wildflowers, rose, amber, and lavender.
4Vera Wang Princess EDT Spray

Launched during the spring of 2014, this candy-scented perfume is a rich combination of sweet and floral scents that aren’t too over-the-top or cloying.

As these two intermingled scents wind down, the fragrance eventually settles into its base notes of honey, caramel, and musk. Anyone looking to smell how a candy-scented fragrance should be made should smell this inviting scent.
