The last step and one of the most important when getting ready, is a spritz of Perfume. I love it, the pretty bottles, the beautiful scents, the way it makes you feel and finding a new must-have fragrance, it is all very exciting and thoroughly feminine. Here are the 3 perfumes that I am currently obsessed with:
1. Prada Candy
The advertising campaign for Prada Candy and the beautiful black, pink and gold bottle had me sold, once I seen it I had to have it. I did test it a lot before I bought it and every time I fell in love with it a little bit more. Prada Candy has a strong scent with beautiful floral notes. The composition is described as “an elegant mix of musks in the top, a sensual balsamic vanillic accord of benzoin in the heart and sweet modern caramel in the base of the fragrance.” This is my go to perfume for special occasions and nights out and is a perfume staple that I will always repurchase.
I received this one as a present and I really love it. As the name suggests it is a lovely feminine scent, that is also very delicate, fresh and long wearing. The perfume is described as “casual, sparkling and joyful, with a luminous fruity opening composed of tangerine and black currant with a touch of freesia. The floral heart is gentle and lovely as a ‘bridal bouquet’, composed of white flowers, Madagascar jasmine, lily and rose.”
I love the Marc Jacobs Oh Lola! perfume bottle design it just looks so cute on any dressing table with the beautiful big pink flower lid. Again it has quite strong floral notes, (yes I love floral scents) but it also has a underlying note which reminds me of vanilla. It is described as “lively, playful, irresistible, stylish and cheerful ” and it certainly ticks all these boxes for me. I will definitely be repurchasing this one.
Next on my perfume must have list is See by Chloe in the red bottle, I tested it out in Sephora in New York and it is lovely and feminine, it is also beautifully floral and sweet without being too sweet. What is your signature scent?
