Most Loved: Fragrances


Hey everyone! Today I thought I'd write a post on my top favorite perfumes and body sprays (and hopefully if you like any of these we have similar tastes and you can find some new recommendations!)

Below I have the scent profiles of each of the perfumes/body sprays since I think it's really helpful and I definitely see a trend happening with these and It will be more helpful I think since you can look up your favorite perfumes (just type into google your favorite perfume notes) and see if these are in a similar scent family :)

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle: 
"Orange, mandarin orange, orange blossom and bergamot, mimose, jasmine, turkish rose and ylang-ylang, tonka bean, patchouli, opoponax, vanilla, vetiver and white musk." 

This I guess you could say is my signature scent. I interchange this with Miss Dior Cherie every time I run out since the fragrances are only slightly different but this is definitely the more sophisticated older sister of Miss Dior Cherie (not to mention everyone and their grandmother wears Miss Dior Cherie)


Chanel No. 5
"Neroli, ylang-ylang, bergamot, amalfi lemon, iris, jasmine, orris root, rose and lily-of-the-valley, vetiver, musk, sandalwood, patchouli, oak moss, amber, vanille and civetta." 

This is the most sophisticated perfume I own. Timeless and reserved for special occasions especially because it is quite a strong scent with amazing silage. This was my grandmothers signature scent, and she was an inspiring sophisticated and beautiful woman that I can only aspire to embody and this perfume definitely makes me feel the part (or at least smell it haha)


MAC Turquatic
"Amalfi lemon, water notes, lotus, anemona, virginia cedar and orris root"

I think this is definitely my favorite scent...I don't think I can ever get tired of it. It's simple and aquatic and I find myself smelling my wrists all day long. I'm pretty sure MAC made this permanent and I'm over the moon and hope to get a giant bottle soon. This smells a lot like D&G Light Blue but is a little less headache inducing and slightly different/refreshing since again everyone owns Light Blue

D&G Light Blue 
"Sicilian Citron, Bluebell, Granny Smith Apple, Jasmine Sambac, Bamboo, White Rose, Cedarwood, Amber, Musk."

Everyone....including ME. I love this perfume. It reminds me of drives down to the beach with my best friends and summer nights with bonfires and blankets wrapped around you. It has so many memories attached to it (probably because it's so strong). I go through phases of wearing this perfume...at times I find it too strong for me and at other times it's just perfect. But DEFINITELY not a year round perfume (sorry if that offends anyone!)

Victoria's Secret Vixen
Apple blossom, freesia and vanille.

OH. MY. GOD. If you haven't smelled this you must. That is if you like the smell of things like DKNY Be Delicious basically go online and order this right now because I promise you'll love it. To me it almost smells like DKNY Be Delicious with a hint of watermelon? I asked my brother to describe it and he said it reminds him of watermelons too...but not the same scent when you think of a watermelon candy....or a watermelon itself...just go smell it and you'll see what I mean. Even as I type this my mouth is kind of watering and I feel my arm magnetically reaching towards the bottle on my shelf....Victorias Secret took this away temporarily but brought it back (I think for good?) since I saw it in their Semi-Annual Sale and it literally took my friend dragging me out of the store so I wouldn't buy it since I didn't have the money and still have 2/3 of the bottle. I hope to get this in the Perfume too and not just the body spray.

B&BW Capri Seaside Citrus
"Bergamot, mediterranean grapefruit, nectarine, coconut, Lily-of-the-valley, orange blossom, creamy musk, amber-colored driftwood, vanilla"

This one smells amazing. I don't know why it doesn't smell citrusy to me though. I was wearing it a few weeks ago and my brother said to me "You smell just like a Bath & Body Works. You know that smell when you walk into the shop? Just like that." I guess that's the best way to describe it but it smells wonderful. I'm not sure if you can get it as it was part of their summer collection but I imagine it's in a clearance bin somewhere and they often re-promote their summer collections. And boy oh boy that bottle...the chevron print is right up my alley. Which you would obviously know just from looking at my blog.

Other Favorites
Now I don't have all of the perfumes I love due to prices and the fact that I recently moved to Europe from California and couldn't take everything with me so I had to make some sad cuts...so some of these I still have at my moms house and some I hope to receive for Christmas
Vera Wang Princess
Vera Wang Rock Princess
DKNY Be Delicious
Dior Hypnotic Poison
Valentino Rock N' Rose
Miss Dior Cherie
Chanel Chance
Roses de Chloe

Do you have a similar perfume taste to me? If so..what are some of your other favorites?

    Light Blue is one of my most loved scents. I first got it many years ago, and must have repurchased it 3 times - that's quite impressive for me when it comes to perfumes :o). Xx
