I know how hard it is to find the perfect scent, and as you can guess from the little collection of perfumes that I own, that I constantly change mine. From fruity, to wood scent, from day to night, you need a perfume that does it all, but let's face it. You can never find one. So here are mine, and what I think of them, just in case you wanted some suggestions.
1. Wonderstruck - Taylor Swift 10/10
This has to be my favourite scent at the moment, and that is not just my love for Taylor Swift. For starters, the bottle is gorgeous by itself with little charms and a beautiful colour. The box is just as gorgeous, which I would have shown you but...Let's be honest here, I forgot.
The scent is a simple day scent, that is light enough to spritz daily, but strong enough to last until after work drinks.
Not only did I get this wonderful perfume on offer for £10 on offer in Superdrug, but I also got the promotional handbag for free, which is a new concept to me but when the cashier handed it over to me I almost cried with joy.
I highly recommend this scent, and for the price and the quality, it's hard to say no.
Katy Perry - Royal Revolution 6/10
This is the first perfume I purchased when I got my new job as a present for myself, and as you can see from the picture, there is none of it left. Are you like me, where you hate getting rid of perfume bottles, because they are too damn pretty. Anyway I digress - as the name suggests, this is quite a statement scent, which I would happily use for evenings out and dates.
Although the scent is quite deep, it doesn't actually last long at all which is a bit of a let down, however the bottle is such a handy size that you can pop it into your bag, and spritz away throughout the day.
Once again, I got this from Superdrug on an offer (noticing a pattern here? Honestly, I swear that in my head, no where else sells perfume, no matter how hard I try) and I purchased this one in a set with shower gel and lotion for £12, and although I do admit that it is good for the money. I wouldn't purchase it again, only due to me finding other scents that suit me better.
The Body Shop - Moringa 8/10
Good news for all floral fans that can never find something deep enough to last. I have found your new best friend. After recently losing my Body Shop virginity, I have found love with the Moringa scent. Even though the bottle isn't going to be a display model on my bedside table the scent alone, makes me give a high score.
This is a deep floral scent, that can take you from day to night, with no fear of the need of rubbing off.
I will admit that I sprayed a bit on my sleeve in the Body Shop, and spent the rest of the day sniffing it contently to the worried looks from passersby. Although I adore this spray, I will admit that the body shop can get a bit pricey, this little bottle will be a great edition to your collection.
Ralph Lauren - Ralph 9/10
This is definantly my second favourite of the bunch. This is one of the freshest scents that I have come across, from such an unexpected place. After smelling almost every sample in Boots, I stumbled across this little gem.
This is very much a day scent, that once spritzed on your clothes, will last all day. At £14.99 it is definantly worth the price, and for Ralph Lauren, it is a mighty bargain. I treated myself to a 30 ml bottle, and it has lasted me a few months, and seen me through some days that I needed a little boost. A definite recommendation, and it would make a wonderful present for any picky friends or family.
Lady Gaga - Fame 9/10
Black like the night, this is one of my top nighttime scents, with a gorgeous bottle to top. A deep scent, that lasts through the night and don't fear. The black liquid, comes out clear although I haven't dared to risk it on anything white.
Another bargain deal from superdrug at just £15 for a big set, that included a gorgeous shower gel, that terrified the life out of me when pure black appeared on my shower scrub.
This is definitely a scent for anyone who wants to go one a mysterious rendezvous, or if you are boring like me, a night out with the girls.
I hope that this has helped you find a new scent, or even made you laugh at my bargain deals. Let me know what your recommendations are!
Much love x
