An Ode To Perfume: My Favorite Scents!

Yves Saint-Laurent La Parisienne: I remember when I first smelt this perfume, it was the beginning of a lifetime love affair. This is my staple scent, I get compliments from so many people when I wear it and everyone recognizes me just by this smell. I have been wearing this gorgeous floral concontion of roses, violets, peony, musk and sandalwood for over a year almost every single day and I won't get tired of it soon! It is a very ''heavy'' fragrance, better for those colder months even though I still love it in the summer. I can still smell it by the end of the day and on top of it all, the bottle is a stunner, so feminine.

Dior Addict Eau Délice: I got a sample of this beautiful baby at Sephora recently and the only thing I know, two days later it was coming home with me. I decided to go for the smallest bottle since I will be travelling loads pretty soon and the size is perfect for that. This is an ''Eau De Toilette'' meaning it's lighter, fresher and much better suited for spring/summer, the kind of perfume you find yourself reaplying because the smell fades in a couple of hours. Nonetheless, the smell is intoxicating, very floral and powdery. Sour cranberry, jasmine, ylang yland and soft musk are the main notes, love it.

Aquolina Pink Sugar: This is a cult favorite, every girly girl knows about this one. It's the ultimate sweet, sugary (and on the affordable side too) scent. I describe the smell as a big fluffy ball of sugar, no really... Vanilla, caramel, bergamot and fig leaves are the top notes but overall it smells like sugar. Perfect for all year round if you are looking for something that will keep your sugar cravings at bay!

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle: When I was younger, I was collecting samples of Coco Mademoiselle and deseperately wanted it. My boyfriend bought this to me for my birthday and to say the least, I was the happiest girl in the world. I have been wearing it since last week and my love for this perfume grows from day to day. It is such a feminine and classic bottle, the most stunning I've ever seen. Oranges, bergamot, rose, vanilla and jasmine make this perfume perfect for any occasion and any season. It lasts amazingly on the skin and what I love the most about Coco is that the smell changes during the day. I am addicted.
