Compared to other beauty bloggers, its safe to say I don't have a large collection. I actually find it really hard to use perfumes up so try to keep mine to a minimum to prevent them going bad before I've had a chance to finish them! That aside, I thought I'd share the few I had with you all and my thoughts on each :)
Starting with the cheapest of the bunch, Britney Spears Radiance which you can pick up for around £28 for the biggest bottle, 100ml. I have to say, I'm really not much of a snob when it comes to nice scents and I do love the smell of this one, it has similar notes to my more expensive ones and is fruity and floral. It's key notes are tuberose, jasmine, orange flower, iris, berries, amber, musk and wood scents. I would highly recommend this as an everyday cheapish scent.
In the centre of the picture is one of my all time favourites, tied only with one I will mention later! This is the original Armani Code which in it's biggest size of 75ml retails for around £70. First off, the bottle for this is so beautiful! You'll see a recurring theme here that like many of the other perfumes, this has scents of orange blossom, jasmine and orange as well as musk, honey and vanilla notes to it. I tend to save this and my other favourite for special occasions and nights out because of their price, but really beautiful night out perfumes. It's the most amazing scent and I highly recommend trying it out in store!
Next up is my newest perfume, Stella Summer Rose which in the 100ml form is around £33 which I think is more than reasonable! I have to say, along with Armani I really do think Stella does some beautiful perfumes. This is great as an everyday perfume and as you can probably guess from the title it is pretty floral, but does have fruiterier notes to it too. It's most noticeable components are rose (obviously!), peony, lemon, apple and amber.
Armani Diamonds Summer is my only limited edition fragrance and my second Armani fragrance. I'll be honest here, I think out of the five this is probably my least favourite but that's not to say it isn't a nice scent. I sort of bought this on a whim and although I like it, it's just not as overwelmingly lovely as my others to me and I don't find it lasts as long as I'd like it to for the price I paid for it! It contains raspberry, litchi, rose, peony, musk, wood and amber and retails for around £62 for the full 100ml size but I'm sure mines smaller than that, I just can't find it!
Finally is my other all time favourite, Paco Rabanne Lady Million which in it's full 80ml size retails for around £55-65. This sounds really odd, but this is one of those scents that you feel really confident wearing! I definitely get the most compliments when I wear this or Armani Code which is always the sign of a great perfume to me. It's really longlasting and has notes of neroli, orange flower (again), jasmine (again!), bitter orange, raspberry, honey and patchouli. I really recommend this perfume and will always have it in my collection!
This doesn't really need to be said, but it's worth noting that I never buy perfumes for myself, I ask for them as presents and will only buy them on mine and my families annual trip to Boots on boxing day (yes we're that sad) where we use all our points we saved that year to buy the 50% off stuff leftover from Christmas which often includes perfume giftsets :)
