One of my favourite things to treat myself to is a new fragrance. I have one for everyday wear, one for when I’m off to somewhere a bit fancier (aka not Uni or a trip to Tesco) and one for going OUT-out. Although I do tend to stick with the good ol’ classic DKNY Be Delicious for everyday, I like to switch up my perfume if I’m going out.
I’ve had a few scents on my wish list for some time now, so with the festive season rapidly approaching, I thought it was the perfect time to share them with you.
Clive Christian Queen Anne VII
£350 for 50ml
I did say this was a luxury wish list! I usually reach for fruity perfumes as I LOVE the sweetness and the Queen Anne VII from Clive Christian, which was created in homage to the history and flora of a Queen Anne garden, perfectly combines floral and fruity to create the ultimate sexy and sultry scent.
£79 for 50ml
I’ve been absolutely lusting after Gabrielle by Chanel since its release. Gabrielle is a solar fragrance created around four points of light from four flowers: Orange Blossom, Ylang-Ylang, Jasmine and Grass Tuberose. Oliver Polge, House of Chanel perfumer said “I put the emphasis on the floral notes to find a new realm of expression.”
Tom Ford Velvet Orchid Lumérie
£112 for 100ml
Tom Ford’s Velvet Orchid Lumerie is a new bright, shimmering interpretation of the original ultra-feminine scent, Velvet Orchid Eu De Parfum. The perfume is sultry, spellbinding and fresh with key notes of Bergamot, Honey, Jasmine Absolute and Black Orchid.
£72 for 50ml
I’m not going to lie, one of the first things that drew me to GUCCI Bloom is the beautiful packaging. Blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas and developed under Gucci’s Creative Director Alessandra Michele’s vision, the scent is desgined to celebrate the authenticity, vitality and diversity of women. Tuberose and Jasmine is combined with the unique South Indian flower Rangoon Creeper to create a rich floral fragrance.
