Hey there, hope you are well. Today I have put together a few of my favorite fragrances and just give a little note on each of them since the only way to love a fragrance is by actually trying them out. If you know me, you would know im a perfume lover. Its very important to smell good because it has a way of boosting your confidence anywhere you go. I even spray body mist before i go to bed lol, dont judge me. I love anything that smells good ranging from shower gel – body mist- scented candles- perfumes of cus.
Tip: If you are a perfume lover like me and you have a lot in your collection, it will be hard to use up all of them before you restock, my advice would be to buy a smaller bottle like the 30ml or 50ml depending on the sizes they come in. Especially if you love to try new fragrances and not stick to just 1.
If you dont like variety then you can afford to buy the 100ml, that would be able to last you a long time.
Also, advantage of buying smaller bottles for perfume lovers like me is that you save money because most of this designer perfumes dont come cheap but at least the smaller mls come at a cheaper price. Duty free is another way to save some coins, get your favorite perfumes when you are travelling because they are tax free. I always save for my duty free purchases lol.
This is an amazing fragrance for those who dont love a very strong scent. Its feminine and seductive if I say so myself. I love this fragrance so much and its definitely one I will always restock when I run out.
According to the website, its a tribute to todays femininity. Its a strong, free and sensual femininity. It was inspired by Angelina Jolie.
Notes: Carla Lavender, Vanilla Tahitensis, Sambac Jasmine, Album Sandalwood. All these ingredients contribute to the fresh oriental, audacious, radiant and sensual fragrance.
Hugo Boss The Scent Private Accord
This here is my most recent purchase and I dont regret this one bit. A little goes a really really long way. Its quite strong but not in an oppressive way. Strong yet so feminine. I will really recommend this as a Christmas gift for her. Thank me later.
According to the website, Addictive cocoa absolute pulses at the heart of BOSS The Scent Private Accord for Her, while the freshness of sweet mandarin and captivating osmanthus contrast with warm tonka.
Tom Ford Velvet Orchid
Tomford Black orchid is the known popular fragrance but for some reason I dont seem to like it. Maybe because its too popular, I dont really know. Nevertheless, i did find one Tomford fragrance that I actually love. Velvet Orchid. Its feminine and if you can tell by now, I love the strong scents (eu de parfum) because they last longer and a little goes a long way. I will really recommend this and I hope you try it too.
According to the website, tom ford velvet orchid is an oriental floral that evolves the carnal grandeur and seductive power of the iconic tom ford black orchid into an uber-feminine fragrance lavished with notes of cool citrus, dramatic petals, honey and rum.
Emporio Armani Because Its You
This fragrance is just playful, magnetic and addictive. A strong floral scent of cus with notes of Vanilla, raspberry and rose. I love to layer this with any other mild fragrance just to tone it down.
According to the website, Because It’s You is happy, delicious and sparkling: simply irresistible like a ripe raspberry in its perfect and most elegant naturalness when combined with neroli notes.
What does this tantalizing young woman hide in her heart? The fragrance is unabashedly feminine, full, instinctive and passionate. Her charm is immediately apparent, like the addictive and sophisticated rose absolute scent.
The fragrance plays with her powers of seduction as vanilla mixes with musk, revealing a complex and incredibly deep sensuality.
Bold and immediately captivating, her fragrance expresses the urgency of a love that takes every chance to declare itself: BECAUSE IT’S YOU.
Lord, my love for this fragrance knows no bounds. I absolutely love this and I usually layer this with the Hugo Boss Private accord. Its a strong scent as usually but its not so over powering. Its a mature scent and gives you some level of confidence if you get what I mean. Definitely #deluxeapproved. It has other variations but the original version is my absolute best.
Notes: Jasmine bud extract, obtained through an exclusive method of co-extraction to impart a fresh green and petal scent on the skin.
According to the website, its thought to capture the rich scent of a thriving garden filled with an abundance of flowers. The scent is designed to celebrate the authenticity, vitality and diversity of women flourishing in a natural, expressive and individual way.
Lancome- la vie est belle
This is one fragrance i have been opportuned to always get samples of but I never seem to get myself to purchase it.
I actually love this scent but im not sure if its worth adding to my collection. Its definitely a good gift for her. I would recommend it for sure because anytime I get the chance to smell it, I always fall in love. Its like the scent reminds me of how much I love it but when I dont smell it, I literally forget what it smells like.
Top Note: Sparkling Iris
Middle Note: Patchouli
Base Note: Spun Sugar & Vanilla
“La vie est belle”, a French expression meaning “Life is beautiful”; the manifesto of a new era. Universal yet personal, Lancôme’s femininity is a choice embraced by women, not an imposed standard. The choice to live one’s life and fill it with beauty. Your own way.
La vie est belle introduces a new olfactive story, an Iris Gourmand. The juice is made with the most precious natural ingredients, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a twist of gourmand. It entwines the elegance of Iris with the strength of Patchouli and the sweetness of a gourmand blend; for an incredible scent with depth and complexity.
I hope I have been able to help with good fragrances to try out. I will keep updating the list, maybe create a Fragrance of the month type of thing. What are your favorite fragrances, please let me know as I would love to try them out too.
Thank you for your time.
