OMG I Didn't Realise How Many Perfumes I had (Part 2)

A long while ago I blogged about my current perfume collection here.  I'm not sure if I'm posting this to shame myself into using them more as I have so many, or just to have a chance to go back and smell them and remember why I bought them in the first place.  I love buying them, mostly in sales or duty free, but I don't like to have loads open at the same time so just end up having them on my shelves but never using them.  Anyway I'll post about the remainder of my collection and then if I really want to admit to my problem I'll post a photo of the box sets that are either under my bed and on top of my wardrobe (yes it really is that bad).

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne 30ml - I had wanted to buy a Jo Malone Perfume for ages but whenever it came to parting with some cold hard cash I just couldn't do it.  Then I saw this one for sale on one of the swapping facebook pages and went for it and was really pleased that I did.  Its a strong scent so I just wear it on evenings out but I really like it.  The perfume contains juices of pomegranate, raspberry and plum which are spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods. 
Lacoste Eau De Lacoste roller ball 6ml - I think this was a freebie from the Lacoste facebook site when they released the perfume, but I'm not 100% sure.   I haven't used it yet but it smells nice and fresh so I'm going to take it on holiday with me.
The Body Shop Amber Oud 50ml -  I have used this a couple of times and its quite strong so I only use it on an evening out.  I cant find it on the Body Shop website so it looks like its not on sale anymore.  I think I bought it at one of their outlet shops a while ago for around £3-5.  I can't find any info on it as its not on sale anymore but its a strong smell which is quite musky.
Chloe 5ml and Love Chloe 5ml Mini Box set - I picked this up from Sephora for $12.  Even though I had both perfumes already I couldn't resist picking this up.  I honestly walk around that shop throwing things into my basket (although I do now run through my basket before checkout and remove some stuff dependent on how much I've spent, which I didn't do when I was younger as I couldn't help myself).  I reviewed Love on my previous perfume blog so I won't do it here.  The original Chloe is still one of my favourite perfumes although I don't have a full size bottle at the moment.  Its a very light and feminine perfume and just smelling this travel size reminds me how much I like it and want to buy a full size bottle (which wasn't really the point of this post, but never mind).  The top notes are peony, freesia and litchi followed by rose, lily of the valley and Caribbean magnolia, it is a floral scent that is then given depth by base notes of amber and Virginian cedar. There is also a hint of jasmine and honeysuckle. 
Armani Code 3ml - This came from the Selfridges Advent Calendar.  This is a really nice floral scent and a nice size bottle to pop in my handbag.  I use this though the day.  If I didn't have so many I would by tempted to buy this in a full size bottle. Its a soft, floral scent, with top notes of African bitter orange and sweet Italian orange, flowing into Tunisian orange blossom absolute and jasmine sambac, with a base of orange blossom, vanilla and honey.
The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose Perfume Oil 15ml -
This is a concentrated perfume oil infused with Atlas Mountain Rose. This has a lovely light floral fragrance which I can wear anytime of day.  Its a great bottle to pop in your handbag to freshen up throughout the day or night.  I think this is another one that I bought at the Body Shop outlet. I can't remember the price.
Diesel Loverdose 7ml - Another one from the Selfridges Advent Calendar last year.  I haven't used it yet but its quite a nice scent.  This perfume is a floral/oriental fragrance with a gourmand base. It contains notes of mandarin, jasmine, liquorice and vanilla.
Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum Sprays Gift Set containing Couture Couture, Juicy Couture and Viva La Juicy all 10ml - I bought this set in Sephora as well for $35 and have used up the Viva La Juicy and started on the Couture Couture fragrance which I pop in my handbag.  I've already mentioned Viva La Juicy in my last perfume post so I wont bother here but it is really nice.  I've just sprayed Juicy Couture and it is quite a muted floral scent.  It has wild roses as the heart of the fragrance, with princess lily and tuberose. Passion fruit mingles with melon, marigold, apple, water hyacinth and crushed leaves. Couture Couture is really nice, light and fresh.    It combines the fruity tones of watermelon, pink passion fruit and green apple with the floral scents of princess lily, wild rose and precious woods.
Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Gift Set with 4 mini bottles 7ml.  I bought this box set in Duty Free and have already used up one on the mini bottles.  It has top notes of Osmanthus, Bergamot, Tea with heart notes of Jasmine, Orange Flower, Rose, Orchid and base notes of Musk, Patchouli.
My name is Leigh and I have a perfume addiction.  Here's a photo of some the perfume box sets that are currently unopened under my bed (there are more stashed throughout the house).  I am a tiny bit ashamed.
On the plus side since my last post I have used up a few of my perfumes including:

Chloe - Love

Versace - Vanitas x 1
Armani Code

Whats your perfume collection like?
