If there is a compliment greater than, wow you smell amazing you’ve got to let me know because as far as I’m concerned, that’s one of the most heart fluttering things someone could say. Fragrance is something you can use to define yourself and have people remember you by. I know my mum smells like J’adore by Dior, my sister smells like Black Opium by YSL and after a long day, my stepdad smells like Corona.
Personally, I am very picky with fragrances, can’t be too spicy, too woody, too girly or too this smells like something you clean a toilet with… *cough* Chanel Number 5 *cough*.
Here are my top 4 fragrance items that have passed the test of my extremely fussy taste!
Alien- Thierry Mugler
This is my absolute favourite. It is unlike anything else I have ever smelt before and believe it or not, it took me about four years to purchase it! (I have however only had one day since then that I haven’t worn it..) This EDP has notes of Sambac jasmine, Cashmeran wood, amber gris that combine to create a scent that leaves you wanting more. Next time you stroll past David Jones, try it out for yourself. If you can wait as long as four years to purchase it like I did, I’ll give you a prize.
Mojave Ghost – By Redo
Luxury brand By Redo is renowned for its unique, minimalistic and evoking fragrances. By Redo- which roughly translates to English as by reminiscing, was started by an artist who designed and drew inspiration for his fragrances by different memories or ideas. Mojave Ghost is designed for a flower that grows in the Mojave Desert. It is floral and woody at the same time, giving it a feminine feel with a strong edge. It also has a matching hair fragrance that amplifies the scent!
Oh Lola! – Marc Jacobs
Oh Lola! Launched in 2011 and is described as lively, playful, irresistible, stylish and cheerful. It is quite a sweet fragrance that has fruity and floral with a hint of an aquatic scent. It’s an amazing scent for summer if you like smellin’ a lil bit sweet!
Another one of Marc Jacobs floral fragrances, Daisy is fresher than Oh Lola! and slightly less fruity. It dances on the edge of being classic but still modern and definitely doesn’t over power. Again, another amazing summer scent that looks beautiful sitting up on a vanity!
Hopefully, you have some new fragrances on your ‘to smell’ list for Christmas! By this time of year, you may even be able to grab some the perfumes in gift sets that come with some extra bits and bobs. You may also be able to put it on your Christmas wish list.. thanks, Santa 😉
