How important is perfume to you?
When you get dressed in the morning for work or dressed for a night out – does perfume play a role in how you feel?
For instance… my every day perfume that I have adored for years is Dolce and Gabbana – The One. Nothing quite beats how this perfume makes me feel.
One thing I have always dreamed about owning is anything by Jimmy Choo… but I never allowed myself to buy the shoes because I am far too clumsy and would literally die if I scuffed Jimmy Choo heels on the first day of purchasing them (and I wouldn’t put it past me to do so either!).
That is why, when I saw this glittering box in the perfume section of Dischem the other day, I couldn’t resist.
It is a light perfume and for Jimmy Choo I must admit that I was expecting a bit more 'va-va-voom' from them but I do enjoy this fragrance a lot.
It changes overtime, starting out as a very sweet and fruity fragrance which I wasn't too fond of at first. I actually sprayed it on in the shop, then walked away to do the rest of my shopping before deciding that it was actually quite nice. It slowly turns into a more powdery, subtle scent as it settles on your skin.
It doesn't linger on the skin as long as my Dolce and Gabbana perfume does which was a disappointment.
I'm not sure if I'd rush to buy this specific Jimmy Choo perfume again but that's not to say that I won't still hold high hopes to find something in their fragrance range that I might enjoy more.
Boucheron was the first ever perfume that my dad bought my mum!
My mum had given me the half-used bottle when I turned 18, after I'd always sneak into her closet to spray a little bit on from time to time. How I thought she wouldn’t be aware that I was doing so, I have no idea.
While my mum and I were exploring the perfume boutique my mum stumbled across this perfume and went wild! We had thought that the range had been discontinued years ago because we hadn't seen it around for so long! Needless to say, we did buy one bottle, especially after the shop assistant told us that is really was being discontinued now.
It was incredibly expensive but because of what it means to us, we would have paid any price to snag one of the last bottles available.
Although we now have a brand new bottle filled with this divine fragrance, it is still one that personally, I will only wear on extremely special occasions.
Boucheron is another floral based fragrance with jasmine, orange and citrus undertones as well as sandalwood, amber and vanilla.
It is wonderfully powdery and lasts for hours. It has been recommended for evening wear.
It's pretty safe to say that the floral and citrus scent is definitely one that I seem to lean more towards without even knowing it!
I am extremely picky when it comes to perfume and have only enjoyed a few other specific fragrances in the past... and they are:
