I’ve already shown my make-up collection. Now, I think it is time to talk about fragrance.
I’m not a great fragrance collector – I usually buy one fragrance in the smallest packaging possible (30ml) which lasts for cca 6 months and then I switch to the new one.
My taste in fragrances has changed extremely – while I was little I loved heavy chypres. As a teenager I have switched towards orientals – but with a slight masculine note. In my late teens I liked woody orientals, while the appreciation of florals came only in my 20s, after an identity crisis.
On the tray you can see all the fragrance I have bought in my life (only Fragonard Miranda is missing). I have a rule that I never spend the fragrance completely – I always save several millilitres in case the fragrance is going to be discontinued.
Cartier Le Baiser du Dragon – can you imagine a 16-years old girl wearing it? I did it and this is definitely the most adult perfume in my collection. I love it even today, but I’m not confident enough to wear it.
Boucheron Trouble – I’ve already said everything in my review.
Cariter Delices de Cartier – this is a sickening fruity floral which I bough during my identity crisis because I loved the bottle.
Montale Intense Tiare – here’s the review
Creed 2000 Fleurs – the fragrance which showed me that florals can be different
L’Heure Bleue – sweet candy violet which announced the end of my identity crisis and the new direction in my taste
Idylle – a bottled spring
Oriflame Precious Perfume – as it is a perfume extract, its quality stands out from thte rest of the range
Burberry London – bottled wild strawberries
Yves Saint Laurent Nu – the favourite fragrance of my 14-years old self.
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Hair Mist – an oriental fruity floral which I do not like.
Which fragrances do you like?
