I don’t know much about perfume, you’ll see from this post that I’m not vey adventurous with it. However, the few that I have tried I absolutely adore. I thought I’d share my favourites with you and hope that you’ll drop a comment letting me know what your favourite is!
I’ve been wearing this Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne for over a year now. The first time I smelt it I absolutely adored it. Prior to owning this I had only ever had sickly-sweet perfumes and so this felt really grown up. I asked for it for Christmas one year and spent the entire year only occasionally using it as I didn’t want to finish the bottle. I asked for another one this Christmas just gone which allowed me to use up the old bottle. I still absolutely adore this perfume and can see it becoming a tradition to get a bottle at Christmas.
It’s crazy but this is the only perfume that I have treated myself to. I received a sample in a magazine ages ago and loved it so much I decided I had to have it. It’s the Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Eau de Parfum. It’s a beautiful fresh smell with floral hints. It’s still quite sweet but perfect for summer.
This perfume holds extreme sentimental value for me. When my partner and I first started going out together he went on holiday and asked what I’d like as a present. We were still quite a new couple and so I did the polite thing and told him I didn’t want him to worry about getting me a present. He ignored what I had said and brought me home this Michael Kors Rose Radiant Gold perfume. It’s a very overpowering smell but beautiful at the same time. It’s perfect for an evening out but not so much a day perfume. I save it for very special occasions which is a bit silly as it’s probably out of date now.
This was my first ever perfume. It’s Pink Sugar by Aquolina. Back in the day when England had a Sephora I would buy it from there – or rather my family would buy it for me. When Sephora shut down, with the help of my uncle, I ordered it online. It’s now quite easy to get hold of online. It’s probably the sweetest perfume you will ever come across and smells like candy floss. I still wear it and when this bottle is finished it’s definitely one I will be replacing.
