With Valentines Day approaching I thought I would show you some of my favourite perfumes. I love perfume however it is not something I really go out and buy for myself. Instead I usually accumulate them at Christmas, Valentine's Day and Birthdays.
The perfumes that I have features are my favourite that I get again and again because I love them. Each fragrance reminds me of a different time in my life and when I spray them they instantly bring back memories.
Probably my all time favourite scent is Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. If I could only wear one perfume for the rest of my life it would be this one. I first bought this in Rome when I was around 15 so this perfume always reminds me of Rome. I fell in love with it instantly and have been wearing it every since.
Everyone I know seems to love this perfume and I always get compliments when I wear it. Now I am useless at describing scents so it is
'Oriental-fresh, a floral jasmine-rose accord, as light as a petal'.
However I don't like floraly scents so I would describe this as feminine and sophisticated.
Vera Wang Princess is another of my favourites. This is a extremely sweet, fruity floral perfume. I love girly sweet perfumes and this is perfect. I call this my 'happy perfume' as whenever I spray it, I get an instant pick me up. I have been wearing this perfume for year so I have lots of memories associated with it. Plus I love the heart shaped bottle and the lilac colour, it looks very pretty sitting on my dresser.
Another similarly sweet fragrance is Nina by Nina Ricci. In it's signature apple shaped bottle this perfume is describes as a
'fresh, floral scent, blending together notes of calabrese lemon and lime, caipirinha, red toffee apple, vanilla infusion, moonflower, peony petals, apple tree wood, cotton musk and white cedar'
I would agree and say that is is a slightly fresher scent but still sweet and feminine. I first got this perfume when I was 17/18 so it reminds me of my first years at uni being young.
Jimmy Choo Perfume smells amazing to me. This is sweet but slightly more sensuous and creamier. A bit more of a grown up sweet scent. I love the bottle that this comes in and currently have two bottles of this on my dresser. It is a perfect day time to night time fragrance.
Gucci by Gucci is a lighter more refreshing perfume with fruity notes of Guava and pear. To me it smells like Refresher sweeties a little bit. This is definitely more of a day time perfume. There is something very attractive about this fragrance. The bottle is beautiful and looks very classy and elegant.
My favourite night time perfume is Estee Lauder Senusous Noir. I first saw Tanya Burr talk about this on her beauty channel. All I can say about this fragrance is that it is sexy. It is warm, intense, spicy and woody, making it very seductive. This is quite a heavy scent so is best worn at night.
Finally there is my newest favourite Molecule 01. I recently did a review of this on my blog, I will link it here. I just got this for Christmas but already if is one of my favourites. Barely noticable to the wear, it is the effect this has on other people that I love. Whenever I wear this some one always asks what I am wearing.
I hope my favourite perfumes have given people some Valentine's Day inspiration if they are looking for the perfect perfume for their loved one.
