7 days, 7 fragrances
Some days I'll completely skip fragrance as it's often part of my routine I forget. However, I do enjoy perfume and I can't go past a fragrance counter without a little spray of the newest launches. This week I've had a fragrance overdose and have been trialing a different one each day. Here's how I got on..
Monday: I started off the week with a newbie from Britney Spears. Her latest fragrance, Rocker Femme Fantasy*, is described as a daring scent with notes of vanilla musk, creamy violet and blackberry liquor. Once settled I can definitely smell the creamy accords which gives the fragrance a soft, subtle quality. A mixture of creamy coconut, vanilla and golden amber makes this great for musk-lovers.
Tuesday: It felt very summery outside so I reached for Oh, Lola! by Marc Jacobs. I absolutely adore MJ perfume bottles (Daisy Dream is next on the wishlist). The scent is so fresh and light making it perfect for the warmer weather. The wonderfully sweet scent has top notes of pear and raspberry with base notes of vanilla and sandalwood. As it is a very light fragrance I do find I have to re-apply it more often.
Wednesday: Another favourite of mine - Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. I've been using this for just over a year and it's my go-to scent if I want to feel confident. I'm not always a fan of floral scents but this I love. The perfume is scented with freesia, rose and jasmine. The subtle notes of patchouli helps prevent this from becoming too overpowering.
Thursday: I was clearly feeling quite fancy as I opted for Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. Despite having a Chanel fragrance in my header, I don't get along with many of them. This is a very sophisticated yet wearable scent. Described as an oriental-floral fragrance I think this one has to be sniffed. A lovely unique scent that you can't go wrong with.
Friday: I'm not a huge fan of celebrity fragrances as I just get what appeals to me regardless of the brand. I have no strong feelings towards Kelly Brook but nonetheless wanted to find out what her newest scent had to offer. Audition* is set out to be a timeless and elegant scent that gives confidence. Tops notes include a concoction of bergamot, melon and water apple. It's base notes of vanilla and amber create just the right mixture of sweet and musk without being overpowering. This a really affordable, feminine fragrance which shouldn't be discounted.
Saturday: I really dislike the original YSL Opium perfume but it's little sister fragrance - Black Opium is magical. Be warned, this is really sweet. The fragrance opens up with notes of pink pepper, which is complimented with vanilla and orange blossom. This gorgeously sweet perfume is sure to put a stop to any sweet cravings.
Sunday: I ended the week with the extremely wearable, HUGO Woman. This is the kinda fragrance I'd recommend buying for someone if you don't know what they like as it's so easy to wear. The scent is sprinkled with dark, fruity black plum and black tea. The compelling mixture of heady femininity and masculine intrigue makes this a truly unique perfume unlike anything I've tried before.
