Good girl by Carolina Herrera

Hey lovelies! Perfume alert 😃 I received Good girl by Carolina Herrera yesterday & I was floored when I opened the box! I will just start by saying that the packaging is uh-ma-zing!! Velvet box & a bottle that looks like a stylish stiletto! Like OMG…This bottle is TOTALLY vanity table worthy! The perfume combines the floral side of tuberose & jasmine the & musky side of tonka beans & cocoa. A perfect fragrance for the tamed with a wild side! 😉

Good Girl

Update: After having used this perfume a few times now, I find the smell of this baby  sweet and musky and I do notice that at certain times of the month the smell is over powering! So if this is common knowledge then I clearly have not been aware about this but hormones do play a part in how the perfume smells on your body. But the weird part is that I sense the difference only with this particular perfume and I use different fragrances  everyday. Overall I reach out for this one when I want to feel sexy and playful and maybe this could be a psychological thing because the bottle is so amazing! Plus the perfume’s caption is like every timid girl’s calling like myself!

Blossom by Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo Blossom

Hello lovelies!! 😃 I’ve got something over here to amp up your Fri-day & night or any day for that matter depending on when you are reading this! Those who know me know that I’m a BIG sucker for fragrances! I hoard perfumes from like 10 years ago. So yes I love my smells is a bit of an understatement .

I picked this one up a couple years ago & I’m still so much in love with it. Jimmy Choo makes some the best fragrances & this one’s no different. This is the perfect summer smell which is floral, sweet & fresh at the same time, all without it being too overpowering. Raspberries, cherries, sandalwood & roses dominate this awesome fragrance. If you’re on the lookout for a summer perfume, do give this one a go! 😊

I tend to wear this when I am feeling girly and I need that feminine perk to my stride. It’s a very haunting fruity yummy smell. What I love about this perfume is that if you leave your hair loose the fragrance will seep through your hair and leave a beautiful fragrant mist. I discovered this because on two ocassions  when I wasn’t wearing the perfume, the smell was still lingering in my hair so significantly that my friends asked me what perfume I was wearing while I was wearing none on that day! Impressive longevity I must say.

Hello lovelies! Fragrance alert! Those whom have tried Marc Jacobs perfumes will know about this one for sure! Daisy Dream happens to be one of the best sellers from the Marc Jacobs range. I absolutely love the fresh fruity-floral scent that this baby has! Reminds me of bouquets of fresh flowers during spring! 💐 If you love fruity floral scents then you will love this one! Marc Jacob perfumes also have the cutest packaging. I mean just look at the bottle! Isn’t it adorable? P.S. I actually bought it specially for that cutesie bottle 🙈😊

A walk in spring!

I tend to reach out for this one when I want to go for a brunch with my girls or I need some positive uplift for a meeting or interview. It just keeps me in a peppy frame of mind if that makes sense! It’s a very playful, young and fresh. So if you’re not into that sort of smells then you probably won’t like it too much. However, women of the younger generation will definitely like it!

Welcome to Fragrance! :)

Hello Lovebees! Welcome to my Fragrance category 🙂

I have been a massive fan of fragrances since I was a little girl. My earliest memory of perfumes were the ones on my mother’s vanity. One of the perfumes on her table was Cacharel’s Anais Anais which was the very first perfume I ever came to know. I must have been 5 years old then but I still remember the fragrance distinctively. That’s the magic of perfumes, once they touch your senses they never leave you!  However, it wasn’t until my early teens that I actually started using scents. And all of that began with the Charlie hype from Revlon. Thanks to Cindy Crawford! 😉

Charlie and Fire & Ice were my two very first perfumes. From there on a full blown love affair with fragrances began. After that perfumes as birthday gifts became a regular theme, treating myself to perfumes as gifts also became second nature. That is probably the common theme in every woman’s life and I have a feeling perfumes may just be the most gifted items in the word!

Over the years I have collected, tried and tested lots of perfumes. The good, bad and the don’t-even-bother kinds. Actually saying that fragrances are a very personal thing so I apologise for that bold statement above, there’s really no bad or ugly in this area. Everyone looks for different qualities and attributes while choosing a perfume. What may appeal to me may not appeal to someone else. Perfumes have so much variety though which makes picking one out so much fun!!…Or complete nightmare if you have to pick one for someone you don’t know.

There is a fragrance for every occasion; work, socialising, friends, love, attraction, fun, summer, winter, spring, you name it!

I am usually not fussy about perfumes as long as they smell nice and can I see myself wearing it again. However, I have noticed that I have started leaning more towards the long lasting woody and spicy category over the years.

I will be posting my reviews on each and every perfume I currently own. I will categorise them with 2 stars, 3 stars and finally 5 stars; which will be the best ones I own. They will have no particular order so you may just see the heading of the post as ,’Review: Name of perfume. 3 Stars’ followed by my thoughts on them. Once again all my reviews on fragrances will be based on my personal opinion and I completely acknowledge that everyone has their own preference so please kindly just take these posts more as a reference guide than anything else 🙂

So there it is my Lovebees! Please stay in tune for the upcoming fragrance posts!! 🙂 Muahhh
