So whether you're a man or woman reading this for inspiration for your girlfriend/fiancé/wife, or you simply just fancy treating yourself, (because why the hell not)? Hopefully one of these will catch your attention and you'll remember to give it a sniff next time you're in a perfume shop?
I'm not going to lie, describing perfumes is one of my failures in life! I am completely useless when it comes to explaining what a scent smells like, so please bare with me!..
This perfume is a steal!! So cheap and affordable, if you don't want to splurge too much, I would highly recommend this one.
I used to love Gucci Rush when I was younger, but as I get older, I'm finding that I am more attracted to gentler scents and find the stronger ones like Gucci Rush or Jean Paul Gauitier, (another old favourite), are way too strong for me these days and just give me a headache.
Premiere has a lovely gentle, floral and woody smell to it. Soft enough making it suitable for day or nighttime perfume.
Viktor and Rolf hold two spaces in my top picks. Firstly we have BonBon. A lovely fruity, yet sweet scent, which again is great for both day and nighttime. And then there is Flowerbomb, which is more of an evening scent I find. Opposite to BonBon, Flowerbomb is more your floral type of perfume. Strong, yet not too overpowering.
Jimmy Choo is a mix of both fruity and floral. A well balanced mix of the two, with not one overpowering the other. I'm not sure why, but I was never too keen on this originally. Just goes to show how your senses change over time.
And finally we have Loverdose by DIESEL, another old classic. This one is so mellow and calming. has a sweet smell of Vanilla, mixed with a hint of citrus. As weird as it may sound, but this one reminds me of a candle scent, or a room air freshener. One of those ones you could just sniff for ages!
So there are my favourite six. One that didn't make it to the list is Black Opium by YSL. Unfortunately, my sample bottle run out so quick and I haven't got around to treating myself to the full size yet.
I've come to realise that I have a fondness to fragrances with a wood base tone. No matter what perfume I seem to find myself attracted to, they all have similar ingredients. I'd love to make my own perfume now I know what I seem to be drawn to.
What is your favourite perfume, or can you name three?
