As I sit here writing this, I’m surrounded by different perfumes that I have pinched from my mum’s gorgeous fragrance collection… For years I have been secretly (not so secretly now) spritzing myself with a different perfume from her collection, whether it was for a special occasion or just a trip to the local supermarket! I loved admiring the different bottles and packaging. As I’ve grown up, I’ve moved away from the classic “Charlie body spray/teenager scent” and tried to build up my own perfume collection, now that I have upped my skincare game! Along the way, I’ve found some beautiful fragrances (and plenty more unpleasant ones).
I thought I would share with you the perfumes that I adore and the fragrances I’d love to add to my collection, enjoy!
This is the newest addition to my collection! It was introduced to me by one of my friends and I’m so glad that I purchased it for myself. It has a lovely sweet floral scent, a mixture of vanilla, freesia and cocoa – I use it religiously and have had so many compliments! It’s one of those perfumes that lasts all day, which is a rarity!
I was given this eau de toilette as a leaving present from one of the girls I used to work with – as I originally admired it on the lovely Abi! I love the fruity tones of blackcurrant, grapefruit, tangerine and lemon – though to be honest if I hadn’t looked up the ingredients I would never have known that it contained all of these at all, as none of them are overpowering!
I “borrowed” this one from my mum’s collection as I’ve adored it for a very long time! A classic fragrance that I tend to save for special occasions, it has beautiful floral tones, jasmine and rose essence. Definitely a firm favourite of mine!
Fragrances to Add to my Collection
Dior – Poison Girl
I received a small sample of this in a magazine and I’ve been dying to add it to my collection ever since!
Another fragrance that I’d love, I mean how gorgeous is this bottle?!
How could I not include this iconic fragrance?! A girl can dream, right?
This fragrance has been on my wishlist for what feels like forever! Maybe it’ll be the first thing I buy with my first paycheck?
p.s. what are your favourite fragrances?
