Guest Post: Perfume Lover?


I love perfume, though I am quite fussy about what I will and won’t wear.  I am sometimes tempted to purchase a perfume because I like the bottle and am desperate to get my hands on Dior J’adore (the advert is also catchy) and Mark Jacobs Daisy because I like the look of them.  But I never tend to buy a perfume on a whim, I will go into whichever store I am near, test it on my skin, walk around and then if I like it, I might purchase it or add it to a list of ‘wants’ and when birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas are on the horizon, said perfume(s) show.

There are now, some perfumes I can just go out and purchase because I have worn them so often and I thought I would share some of my favourite perfumes with you.



Shown above in those 9 squares you will find:

1. Chanel Allure which will cost you around £46 for 50ml
2. Bvlgari Coral which will cost around £33 for  25ml
3. Miss Dior Cherie which will cost around £55 for 50ml
4. Clinique Happy which will cost around £35 for 30ml
5. M&S Blush which currently costs £8.50 for 25ml
6. DKNY Be Delicious which costs around £48 for 50ml
7. Bvlgari Pour Femme which costs around  £35.50 for 25ml
8. Valentino Rock N Rose which costs around £50 for 50ml
9. Fame Lady Gaga  which costs £25 for 50ml and the only ‘Celeb’ perfume I like currently

I am a huge fan of Bvlgari perfumes, they all smell really lovely when I wear them and they are the ones which tend to last the longest before I need to re-apply.  I carry the Marks and Spencer’s Blush around in my handbag because it is so light to carry around and perfect handbag size.  I do like to chop and change on a daily basis which perfume I wear, but it is likely it will be one of those listed above.

Now I don’t know if anyone remembers Tribe perfume? I used to wear it all the time as a teenager, I loved it and imagine my delight when I found some in a storage box, still wrapped and unused.  It is now discontinued and I am told a bit of a collectors item!  I also used to wear Ex’cla-ma’tion as did all my friends and although you can still buy this, I really don’t like the scent anymore.  The final perfume I used to wear is Vanderbilt, again my best friend and I used to wear this and well.. . It is still available to buy and will cost you about £10 for 100ml.  If you can’t remember any of these perfumes, you will find them shown below:





What perfumes do you love to wear? What was your favourite Childhood perfume?

Hayley's Thoughts:

I love perfumes and like Rachel - I am often tempted to buy them just for the bottle! (Marc Jacobs Daisy has also tempted me with its bottle!)

My current favourite perfumes are Juicy Couture "Viva La Juicy", Thierry Mugler's "Angel", YSL's "Babydoll Paris" & Juicy Couture's "Couture Couture"

As for perfumes from my childhood - Ex'cla-ma'tation really brings back memories! I can still hear the jingle from the advert!! I used to wear that and Tribe a lot - my other favourites were the many "So?!" perfumes, Loulou Blue, Cool Water Woman and Anais Anais!
