My Perfume Collection


Hi guys. Today I thought that I would share some of my perfume collection with you. I do have a couple of other bottles in my collection but these five above are definitely my favourites of the bunch. I think that perfume is quite a personal thing, as everybody tends to have a preference as to the types of scents the enjoy wearing. I myself usually sway towards floral or citrus scents because they are quite light and fresh, which I think suit me way better than heavier, spicier scents. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy reading about my personal favourites. Let's get started!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette (50ml) - £47.50
First up is the ever so popular Marc Jacobs 'Daisy.' I received this perfume from my parents near the end of 2012 and as you can see, I am nearing the end of the bottle which I am pretty sad about. As you can probably guess from its title, 'Daisy' is an incredibly floral perfume including notes of violet petals and violet leaves. In addition, the base notes have a hint of vanilla and musk in them to make the perfume a little more balanced and less sickly sweet. I absolutely adore the packaging as it is very girly yet simple at the same time, it looks lovely on my shelf display too. I definitely want to repurchase another bottle!

Reb'l Fleur by Rihanna Eau de Parfum (50ml) - £29.00
Next up is probably my favourite perfume of all time, I have gotten through three or four bottles of this already and I'm almost running out again! It has notes of hibiscus flowers, violet and coconut water which admittedly, does sound a little peculiar on paper but it smells heavenly. The overall scent is fruity yet musky, which is exactly what I love in a perfume. Whenever I wear this, I always get compliments on how I smell and I think it has become my signature scent over the past few years! As for the packaging, the black and gold running round the bottle is simple yet sophisticated - which is an added bonus in my book!

Diesel Loverdose Eau de Parfum (30ml) - £30.00
I first got this perfume when I was a bit younger and the main reason that I wanted it was because I was obsessed that the bottle was a purple heart with a stake running through it (what a saddo!) Loverdose is not a perfume that I would usually go for due to the fact that it contains a liquorice scent, which is something that I really don't like (to eat or to smell.) However, mixed with top notes of mandarin & star anise and base notes of dry wood, it really works well. The fragrance is definitely the strongest in my collection and it lingers for hours, I prefer to wear this scent at night time as it can be a little overpowering during the day.

This gorgeous perfume used to be my 'signature scent' that I was obsessed with before I started using Reb'l Fleur. The fuchsia coloured bottled with the gold YSL logo, (it somehow looks silver in the photo,) looks really pretty and classy on my bedroom shelving. Although its original price tag is rather steep, I got it in duty free and so I can assure you that I did not pay eighty pounds for it! The fragrance itself is first and foremost floral, with notes peonies and pink berries running though it. However, do not be fooled into thinking this is a light perfume. I cannot quite put my finger on it but this scent manages to be flowery yet sexy at the same time. Similarly to Loverdose, it is lovely to use at night time!
Marc Jacobs Honey Eau de Parfum (50ml) - £46.99
Last but no means least is the most recent addition to my collection, Honey, which I received from my parents for Christmas along with the matching shower gel and body wash. This perfume has notes of honey along with orange blossom, peach nectar, apricots, pears and mandarins. So, as you can probably tell, this is definitely a fruity and sweet spring/summer scent. The bee inspired bottle is also really cute and is obviously a nice little touch, given the name of the fragrance. I am trying to save this fragrance for the warmer months but I do wear it from time to time when I need a quick pick-me-up!

So, I hope you all enjoyed having a little peep into my perfume collection. It was pretty hard to whittle it down to my favourite five as I do have a couple more that I do really enjoy using. Have you tried any of these fragrances before? What did you think of them?
