My Perfume Collection

If you know me, you'll not be surprised with this post. I'm drawn to anything that smells pretty. I'm into candles, body sprays, perfumes, lotions, hand soaps, and anything that smells like flowers or fruit.

It's hard for me to pick an all time favorite fragrance because I choose my scent based on my mood that day or if I am attending a certain event.

Miss Dior Cherie is a fragrance I've had for a few years now and it was my first real grown-up perfume. I've always worn body sprays or mists, but this is a real perfume and I'll always think of this scent as being a sophisticated adult. I've been told I smell like expensive champagne when I wear this, but the official notes are "Italian mandarin essence, Egyptian jasmine absolute, and Indonesian patchouli essence." It's a very strong fragrance and one spritz will stay with you all day. It's also a very warm smell so I tend to only wear this one in the winter. 

Philosophy Falling in Love is my newest addition to the collection. My mom smelled it one day at Ulta and told me it smelled like me! How could I not love something that already smells like me?! It's a fresh spring time smell and has notes of "vanilla, jasmine, Lily of the Valley, musk, and blackberry." I think of a simple romantic date when I wear this. It's perfect for everyday wear and also for special occasions. 

Versace Bright Crystal smells heavenly. I received a small sample in a Sephora order last year and used it up so quickly I knew it would become an all time favorite. It's a light scent, but a little goes a long way. It's interesting to find a light scent that sticks with you for so long. The notes are of "iced accord, yuzu, pomegranate, peony, magnolia, lotus flower, acajou, vegetal amber, and musk." I couldn't tell you what many of those scents smell like, but I assure you it is lovely.

Pink Fresh and Clean Body Spray is probably my oldest fragrance. My friends and I have agreed that this smell is high school for us. We all used to run to Victoria's Secret at the mall and spray each other. It's one of those scents that I'll always need in my collection because there are so many memories attached to it. I'm a firm believer in scent memory connection and each scent brings me back to a certain time period. This has notes of "crisp apple, bergamot, Italian lemon, pink grapefruit, soft lily, amber, and musk."

Pink Sunkissed is another new addition to the collection, but I believe they just changed the name and packaging of a scent I'd previously owned. It smells like summer in a bottle with notes of "coconut water and warm vanilla." I've been wearing this a lot recently because I needed the smell of summer since it has felt like winter here in Minnesota.

Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Touch is one of my spicier scents and I love wearing it for night time occasions. It has notes of "Italian iris, gilded apricot, and amber wood." It's not something I'd usually pick up because it is so spicy and I go for fruity warm scents, but I really liked how different it was and am so glad it is a part of my collection.

Victoria's Secret Sexy Little Things Noir is a very subtle scent with notes of "sparkling nectarine, amber, and cattelaya orchid." I bought this scent after smelling it at a friend's house and had to buy it. Every time I spray this it reminds me of the good old days; I love that scents can transport you back in time. It's a perfect fall scent because it has the warmth of summertime, but can transition you into the colder weather.

Victoria's Secret Lost in Fantasy is an ultimate summer scent. It smells like a fresh sea breeze blowing off of the ocean. It has notes of "Brazilian orchid and kiwi" which make it as refreshing to spray as it is to smell. This scent is bright and wakes me up if I'm feeling out of energy. I haven't worn it a lot recently, but I know I will be pulling it out every day in the coming weeks.

Mark Get Misty Pear Blossom smells just like what the name implies. Very few perfumes actually have names that explain what it smells like so I enjoy that. This fragrance has notes of "pear blossom and vanilla" which makes it a refreshing spring scent. While researching this scent for the notes I actually found out that it has essential oils in it to hydrate the skin! Bonus!

I'd love to hear about your favorite perfumes! Am I missing anything in the fragrance world that is incredible?
