Hi everyone! I have been incredibly lucky as I have been gifted many perfumes over the years. I don’t feel offended by this – it means more choice for me!
I have a fair few and I will admit I do love having pretty perfume bottles on my desk; I do judge perfumes by their outward appearance. Today I’m going to show you my top five:
This is my favourite perfume! I’m quite upset because it’s nearly finished 😦 This photographed quite oddly – the colour of the perfume is more rosy in real life than green :/. This perfume is incredibly strong, and will last a long time; it definitely lingers on my clothes afterwards. It’s floral (no surprise there) and has hints of jasmine, tea, roses, orchids and freesias. All good stuff – I love this and will be buying it again (at some point!)
I have reviewed this before in my Summer Favourites blog post. I decided to include it again! A really lovely, light fruity perfume with woody and citrus notes. Quite the opposite to Flowerbomb, but just as lovely.
I love this bottle. This perfume is pretty strong too, and is quite fruity and heavy. It has notes of lemon, apple, musk, cedar and peony. I wear this when I want something that will last a long time. I think it’s also one I reach for when I want to feel a bit more sophisticated. It may be the combination of cedar and musk, but I personally think it’s quite a grown-up perfume (no bad thing.)
I don’t appear to have taken a photo for this one! (It’s the smaller red glass bottle.) This lovely little ‘potion bottle’ would make a great present – Freddie actually bought me this! This has also nearly run out…this post is making me realise that most of my favourites are coming to an end. This perfume is a mixture of fruity and floral – the best of both worlds. It contains blackcurrant, grapefruit, jasmine and vanilla to name a few. Essentially it contains a whole host of fragrances but they all come together nicely. The size also makes it great for travel – I really recommend this one.
How cute is this tiny bottle? I got this sample in a magazine, and it’s a lovely perfume with both fruity and floral notes including marigold, musk and mixed fruits. Despite the musk it is still quite light. It’s a roll-on which makes it perfect for on the go and on nights out! This perfume lives in my handbag. I’m tempted to buy the full-size of this one too…hm…
Which perfumes have you been loving this summer? We’d love to know!
