I have always been kind of obsessed with perfumes. Perfumes have a way of turning every casual look into something incredibly chic. It’s invisible fashion without really changing your look.
Over the years my perfume preference has changed from light and cool (Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue used to be my favorite) to slightly more feminine and classy. Here are some of my favorite fragrances from my stash!
S.Oliver For Her – This is a sweet scent that I wear on an every-day basis. It’s not too strong but it leaves behind a soft and sweet smell. Wear this to complement your casual outfit days or to balance out your uber chic look!
Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle – Aerin makes one of the best fragrances currently. There’s a whole range of perfumes for every woman out there.
Mediterranean Honeysuckle is a perfume with fruity notes. It’s fresh and light and perfect for summer. Wear this on the beach or any day you’re wearing a floral print.
When I’m leaving for Vietnam in two weeks, this is one I’m definitely packing!
When it comes to elegant scents, I tend to lean towards my REPLICA perfumes.
My favorite is Promenade in the Gardens – a soft floral fragrance that just wears itself.
The deep tones are seductive but light at the same time.
REPLICA recently came out with the REPLICA filters – a fragrance filter you wear under (or over) your perfume to release a new depth.
I have the Blur filter, which opens up the sweeter tones of Promenade in the Gardens, making it a more feminine scent.
Without filter, I wear it on all business meetings – with filter it becomes an every-day perfume!
A far more deeper scent is my Maison Lancôme in Jasmins Marzipane.
This perfume has rich jasmine hints and wooden undertones. It’s perfect for a night out with your man.
Wear this with a red lipstick and you’re good to go!
Adorning the bottle on one side is a gorgeous gold plated design – it definitely makes for a pretty bottle!
When you get to go into a store and pick a scent almost blindly and smell about forty or so scents, it does make for an unforgettable experience.
Otentic launched their new store in Amsterdam over the summer and it houses all of their scents, ranging from floral to light to deeper fragrances.
My journey brought me to Fyori 3, a floral fragrance. This is a scent I wear on an every-day basis as well.
It’s light and fresh but has a lovely sweet smell.
Lancôme La Vie Est Belle is my favorite when it comes to hanging with girlfriends and feeling super feminine. This is a sexy fragrance with subtle fresh tones but an overall floral mix.
It’s perfect for day-wear – I wear this for business meetings as well because it’s not too strong or heavy but is still memorable.
This is also a scent that K likes so it’s perfect for date night as well!
One of the ultimate perfumes of all time has to be the Chanel No5. The reissue bottle is much sleeker and has a slightly more contemporary design.
The scent is rich with subtle spicy undertones but overall fresh and light.
I find myself wearing this on special occasions. When we have something to celebrate, when it’s my birthday.
The Chanel No.5 is definitely something you just wear casually. It’s a scent you save up for those rare occasions you may feel extremely feminine.
This scent is definitely in my top three of favorite perfumes!
Alright so these are some of my favorites – what are yours?
