I’ve never had a lot of perfumes. I used to go round to my friends houses and their dressing tables used to be full of exciting and expensive scents. Before now the thought of it has never appealed to me, preferring to spend my money elsewhere on makeup and clothes and opting to buy a body shop scent.
Whilst I still to this day can’t get enough of the reasonably priced Body Shop favourites, this Christmas and sale season I treated myself to a few new scents so I can see in the first part of this year smelling heavenly.
The Body Shop – Black Musk Fragrance Mist.
Lighter than its eau de parfum counterpart the Black Musk Fragrance Mist offers a sensual scent on a budget price. With sweet notes of bambinella pear, pink pepper and bergamot this scent is contrasted with the fierce and stand out scent of black musk. I wear this a lot and when I do it’s often complimented. Perfect for those who prefer a heavier scent at £7.50 a pop it’s perfect for every day wear and those times when you want to feel beautiful on a budget.
A Christmas gift from my mum an dad, CKin2U is always a favourite of mine. With base notes of red cedar and vanilla this perfume has a fresh and floral scent to it. Something I like to wear for a day time event like lunch with the girls, this perfume is a reasonably priced staple featuring scents of fresh pink grapefruit and sugar orchid.
Ariana Grande – Sweet Like Candy
A new discovery of mine, this sweet scented eau de toilette is the ultimate girly dressing table bottle. The scent features top notes of sugar frosted blackberries and fresh Italian bergamot that lead to a heart of cassis cream and fluffy marshmallow, ending with the sweet scent of vanilla. A scent which seems to be a firm favourite in my collection.
Finally I treated myself in the sales to some lovely Rituals miniatures for events. The perfect sized bottles for a clutch bag these three scents are truly beautiful. First up Eau Des Indes offers a mix of fresh and warm, mixing sparkling Ginger, citrusy Bergamot and breezy White Tea. In a sweet green bottle this is my favourite of the three and I’m undecided as whether I should save the best until last. Second of the trio is the slightly heavier Eau D’Orient. With the scent of sharp woody aromas and the sweetness of grassy moist herbs, you’ll find a subtle layer of spicy Persian Pepper and hints of incense. The prettiest of the three Fleurs De L’Himalaya Is as beautiful as the bottle in which it’s housed. For the floral perfume lovers, the powerful scent of Wild Orchid fuses effortlessly with the sophistication of Himalayan Peony and rounds off with a subtle touch of Cotton Musk. The perfect feminine scent that lasts all day.
