OMG I Didn't Realise How Many Perfumes I had (Part 1)
As the title states I really didn't have a clue how many perfumes I had until I put them together for the photo below. I'm ashamed to say this doesn't include the box sets that are on top of my wardrobe or under my bed (I'll save them for another day!!).
I don't really have a favourite perfume as I like to swap and change and just pick up perfumes in the Next/Boots and Debenhams Christmas sales and also in Duty Free at the airport.
Juicy Couture - Viva La Juicy 30 ml. I haven't used this yet but really liked this scent when I tried it in Debenhams. I think I won this in a Debenhams competition. Its a lovely fresh and floral fragrance. It contains wild berries, mandarin, honeysuckle, gardenia, jasmine, amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood and pralines. I can't wait to use it. I might put it on next months use it or lose it challenge.
Tom Ford - Violet Blonde 50ml. Another one I haven't opened yet but couldn't resist buying at Duty Free. Theres just something about Tom Fords range of products that I can't resist. The perfumes top notes are violet leaf, pink pepper and Italian mandarin. The central part of the perfume contains Tuscan iris, orris butter, sampaquita and jasmine. The base is made up of musk, suede, cedar, vetiver and benzoin.
Tom Ford - Black Orchid 50ml. I find this one quite strong so I only tend to wear it on nights out. The top notes consist of French jasmine, black truffle, ylang-ylang, black currant and effervescent citrus. The central part consists of black orchid, lotus and spices while the base is a mix of patchouli, sandalwood, chocolate, incense, amber, vetiver, vanilla and balsam.
Vera Wang - Preppy Princess 30ml. Another one I haven't opened yet. I don't remember what made me buy this as I'm way too old to be using a perfume called Preppy Princess but I'm sure its one of those I tried on in a shop and just bought it on a whim. Its a lovely woody, fruity scent that blends succulent red berries, honeysuckle and sensual woods.
Versace - Vanitas 4.5ml x 3. I'm pretty sure I got these in a Beauty box quite awhile ago but I cant remember which one. Again another one I haven't opened yet (this is making me feel bad. I am definitely going to add some perfumes to my use it or lose it challenge). This perfume combines floral and wood notes. Its a combination of lime, freesia, cedar, tonka bean and tiaré flower.
Marc Jacobs - Daisy Eau So Fresh 4ml x3. I received these free when I spent a ton of money in Sephora in Las Vegas. I love Marc Jacobs scents, especially Daisy and the original Marc Jacobs scent (I really want to buy Dot as my next perfume). Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh is light and easy to wear and features a combination which includes grapefruit, green notes, raspberry, pear, jasmine, rose, violet, litchi, apple blossom, musk, Virginia cedar and plum.
Chloe - Love 50ml. Finally another one Ive actually worn. I've aways been a fan of Chloe perfumes and the original Chloe has always been one of my faves. This was the second Chloe scent I tried and while I'm not sure I would buy it again when I run out, (yes I'm actually going to run out of one of my perfumes) it is a pleasant scent which I generally wear through the day. It contains orange blossom, pink pepper, iris, lilac, wisteria, hyacinth, heliotrope, powdery musk, talc and rice powder.
I think I will leave it there for today as there are a few too many to write about and I don't want to go on forever and bore you all. Writing about these perfumes has reminded my why I bought them and makes me what to try them all out rather that have them just decorating my shelves. I will do another post soon with the other perfumes.
What perfumes would you recommend I try? I have a few perfumes on my wish list, including Marc Jacobs Dot, Chanel Coco Noir, Guerlain Le Petite Robe Noire, Jimmy Choo and Givenchy Dahlia Noir.
