My Top 5 favourite perfumes
I tend to like scents in the floral/oriental family. The main notes of the floral/oriental family include orange blossom and sweet spices, with base notes of musk and vanilla.
|You will note that there are only 4 perfumes in this photo, that's because I've run out of my 5th favourite!|
Left to right:
Lady Vengeance by Juliette Has a Gun - this is a very moody and dark fragrance with spicy musky undertones. This is a fairly recent addition to my perfume collection, but it has quickly become a favourite to wear during nights out. It's too overpowering for daytime, but is perfect to wear to a nice romantic dinner. This particular perfume is mainly sold at boutique perfume stores rather than department stores. It is also available to purchase HERE.
Sculpture by Nikos - this is my favourite perfume OF ALL TIME. I received a bottle for my 18th birthday many many years ago and I've never been without a bottle since. It's in the floral oriental category. It starts off with a zesty bergamot/lemon scent then slowly develops into a warmer scent with a hint of vanilla. It's great for daytime wear. Sculpture by Nikos is no longer available at the shops, but luckily I've been able to track it down online with Shopbot Service (a price comparison website) and at a really bargain price.
Black by Bvlgari - this is a unisex perfume and similar to Sculpture it has bergamot as one of its notes. Bergamot is a type of orange, but not too citrusy. It has base notes of black tea and is a soft woody frangrance. This is possibly my 2nd favourite perfume after Sculpture. And yes, this is also discontinued but you can still find it at discount perfume stores or online.
Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears - yes, I admit, I like the Britney Spears perfumes! I like the original too, but Midnight Fantasy is my favourite! I'd probably put this in the floral/oriental category as well. It has top notes of black cherry, and finish off with a musky vanilla base. Everytime I wear this I crave blackforest cake for dessert!
