I love that perfumes can hold memories - whether it's a perfume you wore on holiday or for a special occasion. As soon as you smell that perfume again, it instantly reminds you of what you were doing. There's plenty of scents I could talk about and tell you what memory I can relate to it but I think I will save that for another post.
I always tend to pick up perfumes when I'm at duty free. One because they are slightly cheaper than in store and secondly because I'm normally at the airport because I am going on holiday and I love nothing more than wearing that perfume I have bought on that holiday. So when I come to smell it again, it reminds me of the amazing trip I have had.
I love sweet scents. The typical girlie fruity/floral scents are definitely a winner with me! I tend to buy the parfum version (if it's available) of perfumes because although they may cost more to begin with, they actually last longer when they have been applied and have a stronger scent.
D&G 3 | I bought this perfume at duty free when I went to Turkey for the third time. It's such a lovely light perfume which is perfect to way in the day time. This perfume consists of watermelon, kiwi and pink cyclamen. A lovely fruity scent with a hint of floral thrown in for good measure.
Ralph Lauren Pony 2 | This my newest perfume to my collection. I bought it in the January sales as part of a gift set. The key ingredients are Cranberry & Tonka Mousse with a base note of vanilla and sandalwood, which I can definitely detect. I love perfumes that have vanilla and sandalwood as I think it gives perfumes a bit of a warm sugary-ness which I love.
Ghost | This was my first ever 'grown up' perfume when I was younger. I remember my mum and I going into our local Debenhams and spraying it onto one of those perfume cards. I instantly fell in love with the scent and my mum very kindly purchased it for me. Ghost is a sweet musky perfume with notes of vanilla, rose petals and Jasmine.
Juicy Couture - Viva La Juicy | I love Juicy Couture perfumes and have nearly tried all of them in their collection. This one has to be my favourite though and I think it's my third bottle?
I think the reason I love this perfume is because it has all of my favourite notes - Honeysuckle, Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood and Jasmine.
V&R Flowerbomb | I bought this perfume when I saw everyone raving about it in the blogging world. I remember going into my local Debenhams (once again) and spraying it and instantly loving the scent. It was quite pricey but luckily they had an offer on and along with my Debenhams beauty card points, I got quite a bit of money knocked off it. Like the name suggests, it's definitely more on the floral side of scents with a hint of Bergamot and Patchouli.
V&R Bon Bon | After falling in love with Flowerbomb, my boyfriend very kindly bought me this perfume for my birthday last year. This is a fruity perfume but still has that grown up scent about it. It has notes of mandarin and orange slices, orange blossom all wrapped in a gorgeous caramel scent.
