A Scent Wardrobe

I remember the day I got my first ever perfume. I think I was about 14 or 15 and my Mum said I could have a £50 for Christmas. Me being me, I wanted something to open on Christmas day and decided I wanted to try a perfume instead of a £50 notes, and opted for Ralph by Ralph Lauren (the one in the blue bottle) in a gift set. Fast forward almost ten years and I've gone through countless perfumes trying to build my ultimate scent wardrobe, from Vera Wang's original Princess, to Prada Candy, Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy and Armani Diamonds. I wanted to share my scent wardrobe with you in this post because I love reading about what perfumes people love and why they are special to them. I am a firm believer in that you can never have too many scents in your stash because wearing one perfume all of the time just won't do for me, I chop and change depending on my mood, my outfit and where I am going. For that reason I have come to own 6 perfumes, each gorgeous and beautiful in their own right (although I won't try and describe their notes, I'm shockingly terrible at that).

Mango Body Mist - The Body Shop
I am absolutely obsessed with anything Mango flavoured from the Body Shop. This love affair began a couple of years a go when my mum gave me their Mango shower gel and it is absolutely heavenly. I squealed in delight when I saw you could buy a body spray and did not waste a single moment before purchasing! I love spraying this in my room, on my duvet, to freshen up clothes or laundry. Yum!

Bronze Goddess - Estee Lauder
I wrote a post about this divine perfume back in the summer, it details my love for this perfume and how it brings about a wave of nostalgia for summer holidays past whenever I wear it. I admit that now that it is winter this has been slightly neglected, but come the warmer months and this will be spritzed all over me like there's no tomorrow.

Daisy Eau So Fresh - Marc Jacobs
Look how gloriously overstated the Daisy by Marc Jacobs bottle is. I absolutely adore the packaging on this perfume, so cute and feminine. This is my go to spring time scent, when the leaves are budding and it's still slightly chilly but not so much so that you need to wear a heavy coat. It's a vibrant scent, and one of those that everyone can immediately tell you have on, I love this one and it's a definite recommendation.

English Velvet - Jack Wills
This is a scent I'd been lusting after for a while after being offered a sample in a Jack Wills store in Durham. It's very girlie and very floral and is a delight to wear. I have a rollerball version of this too for my handbag, which goes to show that I love it lots. I'm a bit of a Jack Wills fan (I know some people either love or hate the brand!) so this is a nice addition to my collection of their products.

Coco Mademoiselle - Chanel
A very recent find and addition to my scent wardrobe, Coco Mademoiselle was something I thought I would ask for on my birthday list when, to my surprise, J had popped it under the Christmas tree for me! It's a gorgeous 'grown up' scent in an equally gorgeous bottle. And it's Chanel. Need I say more?

Si - Giorgio Armani
Si is a fragrance that I'd been lusting after for about a month after I smelled it for the first time. It's just so grown up, and it's just so me. Boots were offering 1000 points for the purchase of 3 luxury beauty items in December, so I ordered a Christmas present and this for myself. I can't stop spritzing this, and I've had more compliments when wearing it than I have with any other perfume that I own. If you need a new perfume, go and give this a sniff. Now.

So that's my 2014 scent wardrobe. What's your favourite perfume?

  2. You have a great collection!


  3. I love Eau So Fresh, I think that will always be a favourite! I tend to go for floral based perfumes more than any other scent xx

  4. I'm a reformed perfume addict! When I got up to about 30 I decided it was time to stop buying them and just use up what I have. That was a couple of years ago and I still have I believe it was 23 at last count, but people do still buy me perfume for presents though so I do get new additions sometimes. I've just bought the mango eau de toilette from The Body Shop but I was really disappointed to discover that the smell disappears very quickly on me :(
