I haven’t always been a perfume hoarder but over the past few months my collection has grown a bit ridiculous due to some killer new releases and a few weak moments in David Jones. I thought I’d share with you my ultimate fragrances I’ll be reaching for as the weather warms up and a few may surprise you.
Viktor and Rolf Bonbon*
I’ve seen alot of negative reviews on this perfume which really did surprise me considering I loved it from the very first time I sniffed it. I usually tend to go for fragrances that are more floral then sweet but the intense caramel notes are a gorgeous break form my usual scents. It may sound sickly sweet but I think it’s very well balanced with the Jasmine notes. The packaging is divine too!
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
This one is very loved and I’ve had it since I stole it off my Mum when I lived at home (don’t worry guys I bought her a new one). You know a perfume is well loved when you lose the cap, I’m super annoyed that happened. Anyway, this perfume is just one of the classics I feel like everyone should own. It has delicious apple notes that balance out the white rose, jasmine, citron wood whilst the amber and musk just finish off the scent in the most gorgeous way. I feel like this is one everyone would enjoy using in the middle of summer because it’s just so refreshing. It’s definitely my most worn.
Beyonce Heat Wild Orchid*
I don’t mind a bit of a celebrity fragrance, in fact I love a good cheap celebrity fragrance (#sorrynotsorry) and this one has really got me good. I’m a big fan of the Beyonce fragrance in the red bottle but I’ve never got around to purchasing it so I was keen to see how this one compared. Sadly they’re pretty different and this one is floral with orchid, magnolia, honeysuckle with notes of pomegranate, coconut water, musk and amber to balance. It’s not the most sophisticated floral fragrance but I do think it’s lovely and I currently have this hanging out in my Travlo which lives in my handbag.
