I'm a sucker for the bottle.

I turned 19 on the 6th of June this year and it’s sort of a ritual for me to always get a nice perfume every birthday and then every christmas. So that got me thinking what are my all time favorite perfumes in my collection and I have managed to narrow it down to just 4 which I either have repurchased or will be repurchasing when they run out. Please bare in mind it is so hard to describe fragrances so bare with me, the words ‘smells really good’ may come up more than it should here.



So my first perfume favourite is Marc Jacobs Lola, this was my 6th form perfume I literally wore it every day and has been repurchased a good 5 or 6 times. I won’t lie I am a shallow creature and theres no denying the first thing that attracted me to the perfume was the bottle. To be honest I didn’t give a flying monkey what it smelt like that bottle needed to be on my dressing table. However luckily enough it smells as good as it looks... well almost. However after Justin Beiber released his perfume blatantly ripping off the bottle it somewhat killed it for me! But hey it still smells gorge, floral and girlie without being overly sweet or sickening.


The next perfume replaced my Marc Jacobs Lola as my favorite day fragrance is Dior’s Miss Dior. It was previously named Miss Dior Cherie however has recently changed to Miss Dior (this caused my mum great confusion when trying to find it for my birthday). This perfume is just gorgeous, its fairly sweet but not on the same level as say a Juicy Couture perfume. This may sound mad but if you own any Soap and Glory products such as the Righteous Butter that is what the smell is reminiscent of only much much much nicer. If I could only have one perfume for the rest of my life this would probabley be it!



My next perfume I’m on my third bottle of and it is my go to evening scent. I do think for me it’s a bit strong and rich smelling to whack out in the day but at night it’s perfect. As I have said it smells rich and almost luxurious. It is also a definite man pleaser as it is mostly men that stop me and ask me what perfume it is as they want to by it for their girlfriends/ sisters/ friends. 


Let’s be honest a Chanel carrier bag is guaranteed to put a smile on any girls face. So when I received Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle off the boyf for a birthday present I was one happy bunny. I have always been a bit scared of Chanel perfumes, my mum has Chanel No 5 and I know its a cardinal sin to say this but I’m not a massive fan! Maybe I’ll like it more when I’m older, it always strikes me as a really grown up perfume if that makes sense. Anyway I have previously owned Chanel Chance and that is a beaut of a perfume but it just doesn't last on me so never bothered buying it again. This is Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle and actually smells not unlike Miss Dior but there is almost a vanillary smell .... wow Kathryn brilliant description there. But anyway it lasts on the skin and is my absolute favorite at the minute so am wearing constantly. Unlike Armani Idol it isn't a definite day or night perfume, I think it can be worn when ever and I have got so many compliments on it already. 




Let me know any of your favourite perfumes I'd love to try them out!
