Favourite Scents

Friday, September 12, 2014

I love perfume. Let me just get that out of the way! I love how they all smell so different and how they can make you feel so special. I've narrowed my perfume stash down to 2 plus one rollerball (that I'm going through like crazy!) and I'm loving only owning a few scents.

I used to own 7 or 8 perfumes and realistically that just wasn't practical for me! I probably wasn't wearing all those perfumes and I'm sure some of them had gone bad after having them for several years! The generalized shelf life of a perfume is around 3-5 years. I found that one of my favourites, Vera Wang Princess, had really smelled different and even the purple colour of the perfume had completely faded to clear.

Perfumes I got rid of: plus my thoughts
Michael Kors - Hollywood (literally smelt sooo amazing and I loved it, I just never wore it so I gave it to a friend)
Juicy Couture - Couture (this scent was not me at all, luckily it was only $20.00 at Shoppers Drug Mart! I also gave this one to a friend)
DKNY - Be Delicious (I was so obsessed with this! But I was almost done it and figured I've slightly grown out of the scent)
Dior - Miss Dior Cherie (My Aunt gave this to me and I wore it for so long but later decided it was too strong of a scent for my teen years when I received it) I am keeping the bottle though!
Vera Wang - Princess (still love this! Thinking about repurchasing it)
Juicy Couture - Juicy Couture (again this scent was so not me!)

Perfumes I kept:
Taylor Swift - Wonderstruck - with notes of Raspberry, Vanilla, Peach, Blackberry. I really love this perfume! It is heavier then my usual perfume scents but it is perfect for nights and I love the berry scents in this perfume.

Marc Jacobs - Daisy - With notes of Violet, Strawberry, Blood Grapefruit, Vanilla. 
There was no way in the world I could ever get rid of this perfume! My absolute favourite perfume in the world, plus Ryan gave it to me!

See By Chloe -  With notes of Apple Blossom, Vanilla, Musk, Jasmine. I've been hearing so much about the Chloe perfumes and I've been really wanting to try one but the price tag is definitely high so I decided to pick up the rollerball version for $30.00. I've used so much of this already and I am thinking about getting the full size when I'm in Las Vegas in November!

    1. I am loving See By Chloe! I can't believe it took me so long to fall in love haha! I have never smelt T Swift's second perfume, I should though. I've heard so much about the Escada perfumes, next time I'm at a mall I'll spritz some on me :) xo

  2. I love the new Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs but I think my favourite is Prada Candy, I really love the caramel and warmth for this time of year xx


    1. IM DYING TO TRY DAISY DREAM! I've heard so much about Prada Candy! I'm wondering it if would be too sweet for me but I still want to take another smell at it :) Have a good day! xo <3

  3. A girl after my own heart, I love Daisy and the see by Chloe, I haven't tried Taylor Swift yet though, will defiantly give it a sniff when I see it
