TOP FIVE: Perfumes

From left to right

Sweetheart by Ghost

This is my go-to, everyday perfume and probably my ‘signature scent.’ The smell is so fresh and lovable as it’s not too overpowering, even though it carries strong hints of vanilla.  I adore the tall, semi-matte bottle, it’s so simple and easy to carry in your handbag.

Beautiful Love by Estee Lauder

I find this perfume to be lovely and sweet, it smells like magnolia and jasmine with a strong base note that lingers on your skin and clothes. This one is good for all day wear since the smell won’t fade for hours, especially if you spray just a little bit in your hair. In terms of packaging it is quite simplistic, but also very large, so good value for money! I would wear this during Spring/Autumn.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs

Daisy is a gorgeous, floral perfume with a sweet undertone. The packaging is so cute and girly which reflects the scent of the perfume. Daisy is my go-to perfume for when I go out on the town with my friends.

Burberry Brit Eau De Toilette by Burberry

Burberry Brit is a luxurious smelling perfume with hints of vanilla, white peony and almond. It’s quite a seductive perfume in the sense that it smells delicious and lingers on the skin for hours. The packaging is simplistic and very classy. I would typically wear this perfume out to lunch or dinner.

Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf

Flowerbomb is a full-bodied, floral explosion with a slightly musky undertone and it smells absolutely amazing! It’s quite a strong perfume which for me is a good thing since I feel like perfume doesn’t always last on my skin for that long. I also love how the bottle looks like a little grenade made feminine. I would typically wear this perfume to an outdoor event or special occasion.

I always love looking into new perfumes and since Christmas is coming, I would love to hear any recommendations!
