Every morning is routine for me, which always ends with a spritz of perfume to just freshen myself up a little bit. I never go anywhere not wearing any perfume, so it's become as natural as brushing my hair. Throughout the past year or so, I've been changing up my perfume collection and getting rid of some of the ones that I've gone off and adding a couple that I just couldn't let go of in Boots!
Recently, I've seen lots of YouTube beauty guru's making videos on their perfume collections- so I thought I'd hop on the band wagon and let you all know what perfumes I absolutely couldn't do without. Instead of showing you all of my perfumes, I thought I'd just show you the ones that I use the most often and adore more than the others!
My most casual perfume that I wear regularly is Zara's own-branded 'White' eau-de-toilette, which I got when I went to Portugal at the beginning of this year. Although I've not had it for a very long time, I've gotten into the habit of spraying this much more than my other ones. I love the smell of this perfume- it's not as fresh as the other perfumes in my collection and has a slightly more musky hint to it, even though it's typically a floral scent. According to the Fragantica website, it features magnolia, freesia, jasmine and amber. It's a very wearable scent which I tend to just chuck on before heading to school or out shopping. It's quite a long lasting scent, which often leads me to finding that using only 2-3 sprays in the morning lasts on the skin for the whole day.
Ah, Chance. Out of all of my most regularly used perfumes, this one has to be hands-down my favourite. Apparently, the main ingredients are- 'Top notes are lemon and cedar; middle notes are pink pepper, water hyacinth and jasmine; base notes are teak wood, iris, amber, patchouli, vetiver and white musk.'. So there you go- hope that meant something to you! I can vouch for the lemon and cedar- it's a very fresh scent that stays on your skin throughout the whole day so not many spritz are necessary for you to smell fresh and fabulous all day. As you can see, I've gone through almost half the bottle- which has lasted me pretty well for a year and a half since purchasing it. The eau fraiche comes in green (funky, right?) and smells just as nice as the parfum- so if you're debating on it and like the smell of the fraiche, save yourself a few quid and go for it.
Miss Dior Eau Fraiche. This one is a million miles away from the delicately sweet yet sour tones from Chanel's Chance and still I adore it. It's safe to say that I'm not sure where my nose lies on the scale of scents. This one is definitely an evening scent- quite overpowering if you use too much of it! I tend to wear this more in the evening in the summer/spring. I absolutely love this scent- which is floral but definitely not as fresh as most. I got this perfume as a gift last Christmas and use it very sparingly- hence not much has gone from it yet.
This is the newest addition to the group. This was a little gift for myself bought with my Superdrug points that I'd been saving for absolutely ages. Especially Escada - Delicate Notes is a very cute scent. It's based on the initial Especially Escada, which is a very rose-based scent. This perfume definitely screams rose when you spritz it. The only downside to this perfume is that it doesn't last as long as the previous three, sadly. After about four hours, the scent is normally unnoticeable, so I often find myself having to re-spray this in the middle of the day. It can be a bit of a pain, but it smells so nice that I deal with it.
I hope that you found this post interesting. What are your favourite perfumes? Are any of these in your regularly-used perfumes? Let me know in the comments!
