Disclaimer: I am one of those awful people who like to talk about fragrance notes, sillage and composition. I will happily wander around the Harrods fragrance department all afternoon, and I can’t leave the house without spritzing some perfume. As it’s national fragrance today, I thought the time was right to touch on some of my favourite Spring scents – it’s only logical.
Two from Jo Malone – Blue agave & cacao and Peony & Blush suede. My all time favourite perfume is the Blue Agave – it just smells like me, if that makes sense. I wear it a lot, so I suppose it’s my signature scent (so grown-up), and I feel happy every time I sniff this. To me, it smells a bit fizzy at first and then really warm and almost a bit chocolately – one to try out. Peony & Blush suede is such a beautifully feminine scent, and is the perfect embodiment of spring – it’s floral, light and fresh. The ‘suede’ gives it a bit of depth to make it more interesting,
One for when I want to feel chic, Estee Lauder Modern Muse. Lauder does fragrances really nicely, but this is by far my favourite. It’s dissimilar to other perfumes in my collection – lots of white florals and freshness, but the notes all work together so perfectly to make something really alluring and pretty.
Paco Rabanne Olympea is really warm – it has salt and vanilla notes. On first spritz it smells quite floral, but as it dries down on the skin it definitely warms up and gets a lot nicer. Not even going to lie, the name and the bottle are what sold me. I’m not alone, because I think this was the biggest-selling perfume of 2015… oh well, c’est la vie.
This perfume is special, because my mum always buys it for me… Chanel coco mademoiselle. Chanel has a lot of nice perfumes, and this was my first ever foray. It’s sexy, it’s classy, it’s Chanel. I just really like wearing it – this is my third bottle, so I obviously go through it.
