For the past year, I’ve been building my fragrance collection from scratch as I’ve finished up all my old ones. I have come to the point where I have enough and am satisfied with what I have although my collection is minuscule compared to other fragrance enthusiasts. To breakdown, I have six bottles of perfume, three bottles of fragrance mists and three tubes of body lotion corresponding to some of the fragrances I have.
I personally think that everyone should have at least one fragrance of their choice because everyone needs to smell good. No exception. Even when you’re not a fragrance enthusiast, smelling good says a lot about your personality and it makes you a lot more approachable, in my opinion.
Mind you that I cannot describe notes for the life of me so I’m not even going to try explaining what each of these fragrance smells like. I will, however, insert their notes from fragrantica.com.
MARC JACOBS Daisy Eau So Fresh
Top notes: grapefruit, green notes, raspberry and pear
Middle notes: jasmine, rose, violet, litchi and apple blossom
Base notes: musk, virginia cedar and plum
The bottle is beautiful and this perfume smells super fresh. I love using this when I have some quick errands to run and don’t want and overpowering smell.
BURBERRY My Burberry Blush + body lotion
Top notes: lemon and pomegranate
Middle notes: rose petals, green apple and geranium
Base notes: jasmine and wisteria
My husband got this perfume for me last year and it smells very similar to Daisy Eau So Fresh. I like using this when I’m going to the mall or to the movies or just out for a quick meal with my husband.
ELIE SAAB Girl of Now
Top notes: mandarin orange, pear and pistachio
Middle notes: orange blossom, magnolia and almond
Base notes: patchouli, cashmeran, tonka bean and almond milk
I specifically bought this fragrance for my wedding day because it smells so, so good. It has become my number one perfume the moment I smelled it for the first time. It smells of luxury and I use this when I have any events or weddings to go to.
GIORGIO ARMANI Si + body lotion
Top notes: cassis
Middle notes: freesia and may rose
Base notes: vanilla, patchouli, ambroxan and woody notes
I heard of this fragrance from Jeremy on YouTube and oh lord it smells so good. Not as rich as Girl of Now but just enough sweet for everyday use.
PACO RABANNE Lady Million
Top notes: neroli, Amalfi lemon and raspberry
Middle notes: jasmine, African orange flower and gardenia
Base notes: patchouli, honey and amber
This perfume smells delicious and it lasts a long time on me. Before I got the Elie Saab’s Girl of Now, I wore this one a lot!
Main notes: Amalfi lemon, water notes, lotus, anemona, virginia cedar and orris root
Another fresh smelling perfume that I fell in love with instantly. It smells of fresh water and I just love the reaction with my body chemistry.
Now onto the mists…
VICTORIA’S SECRET Velvet Petals fragrance mist + body lotion
This smells deliciously sexy! I usually wear this when I’m going out and I pair it with Girl of Now or Lady Million. They complement each other so well!
VICTORIA’S SECRET Romantic fragrance mist
I use this at home when I want to smell a little bit yummy but don’t want to waste my perfumes. It smells sweet but not overpowering which I love.
VICTORIA’S SECRET Aqua Kiss fragrance mist
I wear this at night for bed because my husband loves this mist. It smells fresh, kinda like MAC Turquatic.
