My Fragrance Cabinet

There have been SO many new fragrances out in the last 6-8 weeks that it's been hard to keep up.. So many from the more expensive end of the fragrance cabinets to the cheaper, celebrity end. 

With my birthday and Christmas in the coming weeks it's given me the chance to collect a list of my favourites at the moment almost as a wishlist ;)

My all time favourite perfumes are Gucci Guilty and Jimmy Choo which I use on special occasions and Stella McCartney and Alien for everyday wear but my collection is certainly quite vast... 


My first purchase when I started the new job and treated myself was the new Armani Diamonds Violet - I didn't really know how popular the regular Diamonds was when I fell in love with the Palma Violet scent as well as the almost crystal style bottle! It's not one that lasts more than a couple of hours but with it starting at just £30, it's not the most high end.


As I said there have been no less than 10 new fragrances over the last couple of months but some of my favourites that have made it to the birthday list (or if I'm being completely honest, I've already purchased πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ) include Paco Rabanne's Olympea; a very hit/miss marmite situation and people either love it or hate it with it's fresh fresh un-sweetened smell, Black Opium EDT which is a lot sweeter and not as overpowering as the EDP - both have tones of coffee which you can smell in each but the floral tones in the EDT make it a lot more fresh. When I saw Michael Kors we're bringing a new Rose Gold perfume I was so excited but quickly became gutted I didn't like it but the gold one made up for it. Finally my latest cheeky purchase is the latest in the EstΓ©e Lauder Modern Muse, Le Rouge, more musky than the regular and Chic Modern Muses but there's something about it that I love! The bottle itself is just super classy too.


When it comes to cheaper perfumes, I've always avoided celebrity ones as they all smell like candy floss and horrifically sweet - that is until I found Taylor Swift's Wonderstuck - my absolute fav route cheap/celebrity perfume! The only other Two I own are Kylie's Darling and Arianna Grande's new fragrance, Ari - albeit a slightly tacky bottle with a Pom Pom (and Lady Gaga purely as someone left it at our flat and the bottle is quite cool πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ!

Would love to know who likes what and maybe try even more.
