STAPLE SCENTS

Perfumes rarely make an appearance on my blog other than in the odd monthly favourites, so I thought it was about time to start talking about my staple scents. Being a fragrance fiend, I have more than one-person needs, but a girl needs options, however I found whittling them down rather easy as I have a handful of fragrances that I reach for on a regular basis, especially on days when I don’t know what scent to wear!

When it comes to scents, I despise of sickly sweet scents and I’ve become more favourable of light floral scents! The first comes from Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede, which is a beautiful light, and fresh scent that lingers throughout the entire day. It’s actually one of two all-time favourites scents! My other favourite scent happens to be another floral scent, which comes in the form of Chloe Eau De Parfum*. This is another gorgeous light floral scent, which is one of those scents that you don’t have to think about, knowing that it’s non-offensive and appropriate for any occasion!

As aforementioned, I don’t like sickly sweet scents, which I find a lot of celebrity fragrances are. However the closest I get to sweet scents is firstly Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture, which is probably the sweetest fragrance I will ever own. Despite it having a sweet element, it’s tamed by the muskiness and there’s a hint of floral. The other fragrance is another one from Jo Malone and it’s Pomegranate Noir and it’s an odd one because it’s not obviously sweet but is very fruity. I find it quite dark and sultry.

The final scent is extremely musky due to the fact that it was intended to be worn by men. I personally love men’s fragrances as they have extra long lasting power. The Ted Baker Extraordinary fragrance is super musky but I absolutely love it! I love it more so on days when I know I’m going to be out all day or if I’m having a really busy day! It makes for a great everyday fragrance!

  1. Viva La Juicy is one of my favourite scents! The bottle is so pretty too. I'm currently loving Noir from the same brand, I think I like it even more than Viva La Juicy xx
