I’m a big fan of the mantra, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. I tend to apply that same thinking to my perfume collection and before you say it, yes, I know I’m terribly boring, but I rotate the same three fragrances time and time again. Sue me. Anyway, if you’re a fan of sweet, floral and citrus scents, you need to check out these perfumes…
This was my first foray into perfume as a young woman and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to go without it. It’s a classic for me now – it’s bold, feminine and youthful wrapped into one scent. It’s a super wearable fragrance and is perfect for a day out or evening occasion. The citrus and floral nature of the scent is easy to love and combines mandarin, blood orange, rose and jasmine for a perfectly balanced product. The bottle is chic and looks classy on any dressing table too – win win!
I think every woman should have a Chanel fragrance in their collection. They’re iconic, classy and timeless. I adore Coco Mademoiselle for it’s fresh twist on Chanel’s trademark scents; this is a bright yet sweet fragrance that smells light and fresh throughout the day. The scent itself has an oriental tone mixed with citrus and notes of patchouli and rose. The twist and spray bottle makes this really handbag friendly and practical for those on-the-go touch ups or travelling.
An ode to ‘The Beauty of Life’, Lancome have hit the nail on the head with this fragrance – I bloody love it! This is the most recent addition to my core collection and the one I’m reaching for most lately. Compared to Miss Dior and Coco Mademoiselle, this offers a slightly richer scent and is definitely distinctive. I get the most enquiries about this perfume and there’s no truer testament than people asking “What perfume are you wearing?”. Lancome blend iris, patchouli and praline for a joyous fragrance that elicits fun and happy feelings.
Perfume is an incredibly personal choice so I’d love to know what you make of my favourite luxury picks. Let me know which fragrances you’re reaching for at the moment too!
