I’m not the only one who changes their perfume when the season changes right? Please tell me that you guys do it too. Summer fragrances are generally the lighter scents and as soon as autumn/winter comes along, it gets deeper and muskier. Of course, there are also those perfumes that are suitable for all seasons and I do have my own favourite for all occasions (Stella McCartney, I’m looking at you). This autumn/winter, I have sampled numerous amounts of scents, thanks to the early Christmas press days, I was able to get a sneak peek of some best ones for this feature. So let me take you on a fragrance journey and hopefully give you some ideas for Christmas.
Stella McCartney Stella - My all time favourite - top notes of soft rose balanced with mandarin essence and light peony flower. The perfect everyday scent for all occasions.
Viktor & Rolf Bon Bon Couture - Intense, powerful an luxurious, a juicy mixture of mandarin, neroli oil and peach to start, finished off with woody accord of sandalwood and patchouli.
Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence - With a twist to the orignal Decadence, this contains top notes of champagne and orange blossom, coupled with honeysuckle, saffron and vanilla for that extra bit of glamour.
Ghost Whitelight - Exclusive to The Perfume Shop (my favourite one stop destination for all things perfume) Whitelight is a stunningly fresh and clean fragrance with heart notes of jasmine, violet and rose.
Gucci Guilty Platinum Edition - This limited edition bottle of the classic Guilty scent is just beautiful to the eye and will make the perfect Christmas present. Top notes of geranium and pink pepper mixed with heart notes of lilac and base notes of amber sure is a powerful concoction.
Ariana Grande Sweet Like Candy - This little bottle of candy is sweet on the outside with a luscious seductive core. Upon first sniff, the sugar rush of blackcurrant, marshmallow and whipped cream scents intwined with jasmine and vanilla as a base makes this delight a sweet dream for sure.
Sarah Jessica Parker Sheer Lovely - Another one of my faves is Lovely by SJP and Sheer Lovely is the ultimate addition to the collection thanks to it's effortless sensuality. Pink peppercorn is the core of the fragrance and with top notes of orange blossom and a base of musk, this is classed as a softer and more sheerer scent.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noir Intense - The most sensual of them all, La Petite Robe Noir Intense oozes elegance. With all of the most luxurious notes such as rose, white musk and sandalwood, this is the perfect seductive scent any girl could ask for.
Jaspar Conran Nude - Named simply as Nude, this perfume is a floral fragrance with head notes of grapefruit and bergamot, middle notes of gardenia and orange blossom and finally finished off with musk and orris. Along with Stella, this is the 'all day, everyday' scent that lasts.
