For the past few months, I have been collecting gorgeous fragrances (by gorgeous I mean incredible scent and mind-blowing packaging) for this particular post. If you are looking for a new perfume, consider any of the following and you won't regret your purchase!
ROBERTO CAVALLI PARADISO AZZURRO
This stunning fragrance by Roberto Cavalli is inspired by the golden rays of sunrise over the crisp blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. I have never been to the Mediterranean but this fragrance reminds of something closer to home. The fresh, woody scent really took me back my tropical experience at Port Douglas where we cruised on small sail boat and snorkelled in the reefs - the definition of Paradiso.
Top Notes: Citrus, Bergamot and Lavender
Middle Notes: Wild Jasmine
Base Notes: Cypress and Cashmere Wood
This gorgeous fragrance was in my Mother's Day Gift Guide this year. I actually did gift this to my mum because it was the perfect present. The fragrance and bottle itself screams sensual and femininity. The scent is definitely floral and slightly sweet with obvious musk notes. Mum is absolutely in love with this perfume.
Top Notes: Lily of the valley, Violet leaf, Pea
Middle Notes: Cedar, Orris
Base Notes: Musk Mallow, Cashmirwood
CALVIN KLEIN CK2
CK2 made this brilliant unisex fragrance. As a fruity scent lover, this is probably one of my favourite fragrances. It's fun, fresh and perfect for everyday wear. I love wearing this in the morning because I feel instantly more awake and refreshed. I was amazed when I saw Wasabi in the top notes!
Middle Notes: Pebbles, Orris root, Rose, Peony, Hedione
Base Notes: Vetiver, Sandalwood, Incense, White musk
MARC JACOBS DECADENCE
The packaging of Decadence is out of this world, the most stylish bottle I have ever seen, perfect for the dressing table. The scent is elegant and long lasting, I personally feel that Decadence is perfect for formal parties or anytime you want to make a statement. When I smelt this perfume, the first thing I thought of was gown, when I spray this on, I feel sophisticated. You have to smell this for yourself, it's a little bit "darker" than my usual fruity scents.
Top Notes: Plum, Iris, Saffron
Middle Notes: Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine Sambac, Orris
Base Notes: Amber, Vetiver, Papyrus
MIU MIU BY MIU MIU
This happy little creation is Miu Miu's very first perfume, launched in August 2015. Miu Miu to me represents youthful, cheerful, cheeky and fun; with bold bright colours and a touch of sophistication. This fragrance is a little bit stronger than B Balenciaga (in my opinion), however the combination of floral/fruity/musk is just incredible. I'm not sure why but I feel that this would be an ideal fragrance for a high tea!
Top Notes: Lily of the valley, Lemon, Bergamot
Middle Notes: Jasmine, Green notes, Rose, Blackcurrant, Peach
Base Notes: Akigalawood, White Musk
