My Perfume Collection

February 23, 2015


Hello beauties!
Today I thought I'd shade my perfume collection with you. I absolutely love perfume, I keep buying new ones because I feel like it's such an easy way to transform yourself. There's sexy, deep scents for going out, there is fresh and floral scents for summer, warmer scents for winter. I just love what you can do with perfume and I love smelling different all the time. I don't think I have a signature scent, for a very long time I thought it was Alien by Thierry Mugler but I am kind of over that scent right now. I am going to tell you the notes of each perfume, for reference I used the website fragrantica.com - BTW I am horrible at describing scents.

But let's get started with my perfumes:

Hilfiger Women - Flower Violet: This perfume I barely ever use, not sure why. To me this smells quite sexy but still floral at the same time. It's my favourite out of Hilfiger's flower scents. 
The top notes are Mandarin Orange, Raspberry and Bergamot. The middle notes are Violet, Rose Petals, Gardenia and the base note is Sandalwood. Now after reading the notes, I do have to agree it does smell a lot like violets, which the name would suggest, ha.

Yves Rocher - So Elixir Purple: This is a well loved perfume of mine. I got it because a friend in school had it and I absolutely loved how she smelled so I once asked what she was wearing and bought it right the next day. To me this smells quite sexy but in a way that you can still wear it in the daytime. I use this more in the summer but it can we a bit heavy I find so it's also good for the colder months. 
The top note is Bergamot, the middle notes are Tuberose and Vetiver and the base notes are Tonka Bean, Patchouli, Benzoin, Vanilla, Woodsy Notes and Incense.

Thierry Mugler - Alien: This was my favourite for a long, long time. Has been my signature scent for around 2 years and this is my second 30ml bottle that is almost empty as well. This is a lovely scent, quite floral but still has something sexy and deep about it that I just love. 
The top note is Jasmine, the middle note Woodsy Notes and the base note is Amber.

Selena Gomez - Selena Gomez: This is Selena Gomez' first fragrance and I remember how her fans could vote for the notes to put in the perfume. I got this one from the US when a friend of mine went over there, so I never knew how it would smell but I wanted it anyway. Usually I am not a fan of celebrity perfumes because they literally all smell exactly the same, but Selena's is different. This is a very summery scent and quite strong of pineapple. This is a straight up fruity scent, which I don't typically go for which is why I barely ever use it but from time to time in the summer, I do enjoy it quite a lot. 
The top notes are Orange, Peach, Pineapple, Raspberry. The middle notes are Musk, Fresia and Blackberry and the base notes are Amber, Vanilla, Dark Chocolate and Coconut.

Marc Jacobs - Daisy Eau So Fresh: This is my favourite scent out of the Marc Jacobs perfumes I think. I have quite a few samples of the other perfumes so I did not feel like buying them and in the summer I wanted to get a straight up summer scent which is why I bought this one. This smells totally floral to me, as the name would suggest, as well as the bottle. 
The top notes are Pink Pepper and White Tea, the middle notes are Blood Orange, Tiare Flower, Apricot, Violet, Raspberry. The base notes are Musk and Amber.

Lancome - La Vie Est Belle: This is my favourite perfume of all time right now. It lasts on me forever, which is a good thing especially with expensive perfumes. It's a really sweet perfume so if you don't like sweet smells, this one is not for you. 
The top notes are Black Currant and Pear, the middle notes Iris, Jasmine, Orange Blossom and the base notes are Patchouli, Tonka Bean, Vanilla and Praline. I do not find it smells like praline whatsoever though.

Gucci - Guilty: This is definitely my favourite going-out scent. I absolutely adore this perfume. I have had my eyes on this for years and years but could not get myself to buy it since it is Gucci and very expensive but at one point, I couldn't stand it anymore and HAD to get it. This is definitely very deep, sexy and grown-up, also quite heavy. I'd definitely not wear this in the daytime, it's more of a going-out scent. 
The base notes are Mandarin Orange and Pink Pepper, the middle notes are Geranium, Peach, Lilac and the base notes Patchouli and Amber.

Yves Saint Laurent - Black Opium: This is my newest purchase, I only just got it last week but I love it. YSL is killing it for me lately, I love that brand. I have not been a fan of the other Opium perfumes but I do absolutely love Black Opium. This is as well does smell a bit sexy but also has floral notes. I feel like this is also a bit of a more grown-up scent. 
The base notes are Pink Pepper, Orange Blossom, Pear, the middle notes Coffee and Jasmine and the base notes Vanilla, Patchouli and Cedar.

Valentino - Valentina: This one I had to buy because Becca Rose on Youtube kept talking about it. This one as well lasts a very long time on me, but for some reason this has something very unique about it. I think it might be the tuber as the top note that makes it quite unique and different smelling. But I love it anyway, even though I don't use it quite as much. This I feel like is a scent between grown-up and a bit more of a teenager smell, like if you were in your 20's and wanted to start getting away from the floral, sweet teenager scents, but don't want to go like heavy on the deep, women scents then this one is a good in-between.
The top notes are Bergamot and Tuber, the middle notes are Jasmine, African Orange Flower, Tuberose, Wild Strawberry and the base notes are Virginia Cedar, Amber and Vanilla.
