What’s that smell? It’s me and it is goooood. I have been fortunate enough to have a tried a variety of perfumes through gaining them as a gift and I love it. I love wearing perfume because I think one of the best compliments is when someone says you smell nice. Now over the years I have tried a few and I think these are some of my favourite at the minute.
Miss Dior Blooming Banquet
I’m not going to lie I have had this bottle for ages because I am suffering from it’s too special to use and I like to keep in on my desk and have a regular sniff so I can remind myself of the heavenly scent. The notes in it are orange, citruses, rose, peony, musk and patchouli.
“Discover Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, the fresh and tender new facet of Miss Dior, Dior’s Couture fragrance for today’s elegant young ladies. This delicate floral bouquet, composed of peony accords and subtle sparkling fruity notes, leaves a fresh and elegant signature, with a touch of irreverence.”- boots website
It has a floral scent but it isn’t super strong but has a fresh finish. (I seriously can’t stop smelling from the bottle at the minute). When I wear it, it tends to be in the evenings but it lasts the whole night even though it is an eau de toilette. When I finish this bottle I will definitely be getting it again but probably on my birthday list as it is a pricey perfume but for me, it’s worth it.
Issey Miyake Pleats Please L’Eau
Another one I love and slightly similar to the one above. It’s again fresh and floral (I am beginning to learn fragrances are really hard to describe). It is a very springy scent with it’s sweet, fresh and warm tone so perfect for the UK at the moment.
“Launched in December 2013 this scent has opening notes of roses, to create a fresh feminine scent. The heart of the fragrance is created with pink pepper and neroli. All on a base of white musk, patchouli and cedar.”- All beauty website
Thierry Mugler Alien
This is actually by mum’s perfume but every time she walks past with it on I always think I need that perfume. It’s quite a famous perfume now I believe but I can see why so many people like it. It’s strong without being suffocating. It is once again floral and fresh. You can get the floral scent first but it woodier than the others. It’s definitely quite unique and if you can you should definitely give it a sniff at boots.
“A rich floral woody amber containing jasmine sambac, cashmeran wood and white amber it is a fragrance whose magic tral awakens your emotions. A scent like no other it is irresistibly appealing and totally out of this world…”- boots website
Cashmere by Next
I have seen Next go through many perfumes and I have loved many of them (not all of them) but I think they are great for Christmas gifts and when I need to buy perfume for myself I always go here as they are good value. Cashmere is a musky, warm scent and it’s a gentle scent so a great to where throughout the day. However it is not as long-lasting as the others so you would have to reapply it.
“Luxurious and soft. A soft and sensuous fragrance combining beautiful florals and delicate powdery musks”- Next website
Paradise by Next
I have gone through many bottles of this. I remember seeing the bottles change every time I brought it and the new bottle is different from the one I felt like I only recently got. As the name entails it gives off a feeling of somewhere tropical. It has a fruity, fresh smell that would be perfect for summer or holidays. As you can see in the picture I have a big bottle to use and I can’t wait.
“Vibrant and exotic, Paradise instantly has an aspiration appeal with sparkling lemon and fruity apple fused with floral rose and black pepper and elegant woods.”- Next website
What are some of your favourite perfume/aftershave to wear? I would like to try a Jo Malone scent next as I have heard a lot of good things about them, any recommendations?
