Hi loves, hope you are okay. Today’s post as you have guessed is about the perfumes in my life.. No, it isn’t a perfume collection post (though I do need to do one of those!), instead it is about the recent additions to my perfume collections. As some of you may know, I recently turned 23 and for my birthday I gained a couple of lovely scents to add to my stash.
My perfume collection has grown and grown, my loved ones always seem to think perfume is perfect for a beauty loving gal (they’re not wrong) and this year was no different. I gained not one, but two gorgeous perfumes to add to my growing collection. I can’t give you a too in-depth review of the perfumes as this is more of a first impression post, but I have been wearing them enough to make up my mind on whether I like them or not.
The first new introduction to my collection is this Juicy Couture ‘Couture La La’ perfume that I was gifted to by one of my beautiful friends. I was really excited to try this perfume, I already own a Juicy Couture perfume and I had been meaning to add another one to that family. As with all JC perfumes, this one was housed in a gorgeous decorated glass bottle and the perfume itself has a pretty pinkish tint. The notes in this are sparkling mandarin with bold white florals and as you probably already know, anything with white floral notes is bound to be a hit with me and this was no different. I’ve been wearing this mostly in the day time and so far I am loving it, I’ve had a few questions at work at what I am wearing – that can only be a positive sign. It came in a set with a body lotion and shower gel – the lotion has been nabbed by my mum but the shower gel I am keeping because I need more travel friendly sized shower gels in my stash!
The second perfume I was gifted was this gorgeous Dior Hypnotic Poison by my best friend. I actually had my eyes on Dior ‘Miss Dior’ and I think my best friend got that a bit muddled up but they did give me the receipt in case I wanted to exchange. I am not giving this back. I had a little sniff in the perfume aisle of this before I opened it and I think I fell a little bit in love. It’s quite deep, musky intoxicating scent with notes of bitter Almond and Carvi, Sambac Jasmine, Vanilla and Musk. The second I read it contains Jasmine I thought to myself ‘no wonder I love this, it only contains one of favourite notes ever!’ This is definitely an evening scent for me, I love wearing it for evening meals out and such. This also comes in a set with a clutch and a body lotion, and actually surprisingly the clutch itself is actually quite nice and the lotion is bottled in a rather pretty container. Overall I am really impressed and I’m so glad my best friend made a little mix up and landed this in my life.
That is it for this perfume post, I got rather lucky and got two perfumes that I really do enjoy and one works well for day time and one for the evening. I think I still do have my heart set on acquiring Dior ‘Miss Dior’ so I might drop a few hints when present giving situations arise! I don’t think I’ve bought myself perfume since I was about 16 and I kind of want to carry on that rather spoilt traditon.. a little naughty of me to though to be honest! What is your favourite perfume? And do let me know if you would like to see a perfume collection post/video too. Tanzina x
