What is your favourite perfume? I need some new ones! :)

Hey, here are 6 of my favourite scents.
(From top left, clockwise)

1. Christian Dior ‘J’Adore’. This is my number one favourite smell ever. I have been using it for years. It smells luxurious and always perks me up when I have it on. This is my ‘treat’ perfume that I use for special times or when I need perking up. (£44-£85 at Debenhams)
2.  Far Away by Avon is a perfume that I always have more than one bottle of. My Mom used to wear it when I was little and so it’s a familiar smell to me and has memories. I like this as it’s quite an intense smell but I personally don’t find it too sickly. This is also quite a cheap scent at around £13 from Avon catalogue or website.
3. Moschino Cheap and Chic. I first was introduced to this fragrance when it arrived through the post to me after winning a competition at The Clothes Show live, which I didn’t even know I had entered. This is such a fresh, slightly soapy smell ( I am terrible at explaining scent...) that isn't too heavy for the day.  This costs around £20 from regular perfume stores, although check stores like TK Maxx and Body Care in the UK for a cheaper deal.
4. Next ‘Just Pink’. This is the fragrance I wear most, for the day and for the evening, its inexpensive compared to all of the others but smells quite the opposite. I would recommend most Next fragrances as they smell divine and the scent lasts. ‘Just Pink’ costs between £6.50 and £12, depending on the size.
5. Harajuku Lovers ‘Baby’. The best way to describe this fragrance is ‘Cute’. Not only is the bottle adorable but the fragrance itself is like baby powder. This is nice for the day if you are just needed a fresh scent that isn't too overpowering. This costs around £15 from most fragrance counters.
6. Juicy Couture ‘Viva la Juicy’. First of all LOVE this bottle- it will brighten up any dressing table! I fell in love with this before even smelling it but lucky for me I love the smell just as much. It’s girly but with a slight hint of warmth. It’s like a younger ‘Angel’ (Thierry Mugler).  This costs around £40 from most fragrance counters.


  1. I was a consistant Yves Saint Laurebt "Opium" addict, then I got a free sample of narciso rodriguez "For Her" from Sephora. Even the Pink Glass bottle looks yummy sitting on my dresser. It's not a spicy Eastern scent like Opium. All I can say is...

    I ADORE!

  2. I'm using Jean Paul gaultier classique at the mo which is lovely if a little heady :-s Also love body shop perfumes, neroli Jasmin is gorge & so reasonably priced x

  3. OOh I love Body Shop too. Ananya is my favourite but sometimes they dont sell it :(

  4. My favourites are Thierry Mugler 'Alien', Chloé, Stella McCartney 'Stella', Dior 'Pure Poison' and DKNY 'Be Delicious' :)

  5. dolce and gabanna The One trio all smell delightful, all relatives so similar, certain notes are brought forth and more apparent. (rose the one is heaven!)
    i've also been into the other D&G Numbered fragrances, (they're a bright color with whatever number that you can overlap and make your own) i also quite like Kim Kardashian's perfume and cheaper ones like Jovan White Musk.

  6. I really like Marc Jacobs Daisy, a fresh, gorgeous scent.
    Balenciaga Paris,also very fresh.
    Tom Ford Black Orchid, what my boyfriend calls a 'sexy' scent.
    Michael Kors Very Hollywood, girlie and floral, nice for a spray in the day.

    The longevity of Black Orchid by Tom Ford is incredible, my boyfriend bought me the bottle in May and I have hardly used anyway... I do wear it alot, its just it lingers so much and is so intense that you only need a little. The Balenciaga one I would say has they least longevity, whilst Daisy and Very Hollywood hang on average to quite well :) xo
