My All Time Favourite Fragrances

1.22.2019


Around ten years ago, I received my first ever fragrance as a gift on Christmas Day. I'll always remember my first proper perfume being "Just Pink" from Next and thinking "wow, this must make me a woman", this would have made me what? nine years old? To be fair, I'm almost certain that the exact scent is still available and it's not half bad. But I must admit, I've definitely branched out over the years and I've found so many fragrances that I adore and will be using for many years to come, so "Just Pink" will have to take a backseat for now.
Ari by Ariana Grande -
I feel like everyone's first initial thought when it comes to celebrity perfume is that they smell cheap and very similar to one another, but when Ariana Grande released this perfume a few years ago I honestly couldn't believe how much I loved it. It has the most sweet, feminine scent without smelling sickly in the slightest. It's the most perfect everyday scent and I've received so many compliments since wearing it. Ariana has since released two more perfumes, but I honestly don't think they come anywhere close to being as good as this scent. This fragrance is fairly inexpensive at £40 for the largest bottle.
Bright Crystal Absolu by Versace -
I first discovered this scent whilst shopping with my aunt when I was around 15 and I have yet to find a perfume that I adore more than this. It has such a beautiful scent and is perfect as both a daytime and evening smell. I have found that this fragrance is a lot harder to get hold of than the first edition of Bright Crystal, but I prefer this scent so much more so it is definitely worth the hassle of hunting it down online if you can't find it in store. Again, this is a sweet, feminine scent although definitely not as sweet as the perfume mentioned above, so would be perfect for someone looking for something that isn't as strong and a bit classier.
Sweetheart by Ghost -
Oh my goodness, if you haven't already smelt this then you must. I wrote an entire post reviewing this scent as well as Daydream by Ghost which you can read here if you want a bit more detail. This fragrance is absolutely stunning and is perfect for any special occasions or evenings out as it definitely has a classy touch to it. Sweetheart is described as romantic and soft and I couldn't agree more, it's perfect and would make for a great scent to wear on valentines day for a meal out with your partner.
IN2U By Calvin Klein - 
The most perfect summer daytime spray. I hadn't smelt this fragrance until my boyfriend gifted it to me on valentines day last year and I loved it! It's such a gorgeous, light citrus scent so is perfect for every day use throughout the summer or on holiday somewhere warm. This would make for a perfect gift as it is such a versatile scent that most people will absolutely love.
Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture -
This is by far one of my favourite scents in the entire world. I'm definitely someone who prefers sweet and subtle musky fragrances over floral so all of the perfumes listed in this post are sort of similar in a way. I wear this scent so often that I'm always having to restock within no time at all, plus it always seems to be on offer near Christmas time which is a huge bonus. With ingredients such as berries, vanilla, honeysuckle and jasmine (just to name a few) what's not to love?
Rush by Victoria's Secret -
Although this isn't a perfume like the rest, I just couldn't leave this little beauty out. I first discovered this fragrance when I was in Orlando in 2016 and have been completely obsessed ever since. I call this my holiday fragrance as it was one of the two scents that I wore within the three weeks that I was in Disneyworld, so it brings back all the happy memories just within one spritz. I can't even describe the scent of this mist as it's so different to anything I've ever tried, but it's definitely on the sweeter / light musk side which is my go to. I am constantly stocking up on this spray at every chance I get and can tell if someone is wearing this from a mile off as it's such a distinctive scent. It's just so good and surprisingly very long lasting for a mist.

I'm always on the look out for new scents to fall in love with, but I know I will always come back to these as they are all absolutely beautiful. I couldn't recommend them enough.


What's your favourite perfume?

Love Always,

  5. I used to be totally obsessed with the Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture!! I haven't smelt it in years though definitely need to give it a try! I've also heard loads of people who have loved the Ariana perfume, I agree that there is a little bit of a stigma that celeb perfumes are a bit tacky but not all of them! xx

  8. Ooh I've literally just written my own favourite scents post that will be up later this month hehe! I haven't actually smelt ANY of these which I'm appalled by as they all sound lovely, the sweetheart one especially sounds up my street! I've never actually smelt any Ghost fragrances but I know my mum said she used to swear by them! I will definitely have to check that Ari scent out aswell because I absolutely love her.

    1. I highly recommend trying Sweetheart, it's such a gorgeous scent and I've never smelt anything like it which makes it all the more unique! Ari is a much sweeter scent to Sweetheart, but equally just as lovely! x

  14. I have the first edition of the Versace Bright Crystal that my cousin gifted me about 2 years ago and love it! As for the viva la juicy, that has been on my wishlist forever that I have forgotten all about it. Have always heard so many lovely things about it. I think this year I would work on getting it :) www.travelbeautyblog.com

    1. Ooh, I like that one also, I've just never owned it myself! Viva La Juicy is on offer in Boots quite a bit, especially around Christmas time, so that's always a perfect time to pick one up for half price! x
