When it comes to perfume, I am someone who has a couple of signature scents rather than loads of different fragrances. My first job was in a department store, I was able to go and smell lots of fragrances. Yet still, I have my favourites and I stick to them. My favourites have changed slightly over the years and I love when you smell a scent you used to wear and it can bring back lots of memories. I am not particularly good at describing scents so I will include descriptions and explain when I would use each scent. These scents in my perfume collection are ones that I love and will most likely repurchase time and time again.
Davidoff | Cool Water
I have loved this perfume for a long time. It is a really nice summery fragrance. I find it similar to ‘the hollister scent’, if you have ever shopped there, you know what I am referring to. This perfume lasts a long time, you don’t necessarily need to reapply throughout the day. You do not need to spray alot when applying it either. I hate when scents aren’t that strong, you end up going through them really quickly. This is a scent that I always like to have in my collection.
“With top notes of which include Pineapple, Lemon, Blackcurrant, Lily and Lotus, middle notes of Lily of the Valley, Jasmine, Hawthorn, Honey and Rose and base notes of Raspberry, Musk, Vanilla, Sandalwood and Vetiver, Davidoff Cool Water Woman is fruity, floral and perfect for day wear.” – Fragrance Direct
Gucci | Bamboo
This perfume was a gift from my brother last Christmas. It was completely unexpected and I had never smelt it before, but I was pleasantly surprised. As you can see I have not used much from this bottle yet and it is going to last me ages. I have completely used the roller ball perfume that came with the set. So handy for carrying around in your bag. The description on this fragrance is 100% correct – soft and intense at once. In my opinion it is a really nice mix of floral and fresh. This fragrance is perfect for day time but also suitable for night time as it still has that deep/warm side to it.
“Mirroring the Gucci Woman`s confident persona, the fragrance is soft and intense at once. The duality is expressed with strong notes that resonate through the heart and base. Deep Sandalwood, heady Tahitian Vanilla and unique grey Amber accords strike a complementary contrast with the inherent femininity found in exotic floral notes of sensual Casablanca Lily, feminine Orange Blossom and delicate Ylang Ylang.” –Fragrance Direct
Roberto Cavalli | Roberto Cavalli
This is my all time favourite perfume and is definitely my main signature scent. I wear this all the time day or night. I would describe this scent as deep/warm and also sweet. It is similar to Dolce & Gabbana The One – which I used to love – but I think I prefer this one. This is my second bottle of this and is the largest size, I will definitely be repurchasing. The scent is fairly strong, you don’t need to spray alot. I have had this bottle probably over a year, which is really good going as I use it all the time.
“Top notes of pink pepper, flowing into a heart of African orange flower, all of which sits on top of a smooth base of benzoin, Tonka bean and vanilla.” – Fragrance Direct
Roberto Cavalli | Acqua
With the original scent being my favourite, you can tell it was my love for that one that made me pick this up. I find this a similar scent to Davidoff | Cool Water that I mentioned above. It is a really fresh summery scent. I have also worn this at night as it has quite a heavy deep/warm scent to it – heavier than Davidoff. Again this lasts a really long time and you only need to spray a little, I do find that this can be quite a strong scent.
“A beautiful blend of feminine and very elegant jasmine and lemonish-citrusy lily of the valley resting on a fine layer if sensual musk.” – Fragrance Direct
My favourites not shown in my perfume collection are Tommy Hilfiger | Tommy Girl and Dolce & Gabanna | The One. I have also really been enjoying using body sprays on a daily basis. I like using the Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works sprays. Have a read of my NYC Bath & Body Works haul here.
