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
