My Perfume Collection


So, I'm not a massive perfume-hoarder like some people can be.
I'm also not the best at describing fragrances.

We all know a scent is something very personal and I might say it's a beautiful scent, someone else might think it's sickening or just not their thing.

But I wanted to give you the rundown of the perfumes in my collection, and why and when I love them. I will add the notes, in case you're interested!

Chanel Coco Noir


Grapefruit, May Rose, Geranium Rose Leaf, Venezuelan Tonka Bean and Indonesian Patchouli.

Why I like it:

I used to love Coco Mademoiselle a few years ago, it was the first real "grown up" perfume I ever owned. I thought it smelled so feminine and even though it was very floraly, which I don't normally prefer, I still thought it was a very sophisticated adulty smell. This Coco Noir one is similar, but a little bit darker in the notes. I feel like it's the more wintery version of Coco Mademoiselle, and that's why I've loved it a lot throughout the past winter.

Jo Malone Myrrh & Tonka (ltd. ed. packaging)


Lavender, Omubiri Myrrh, Tonka Bean

Why I like it:

I love scents that are very unisex and heavier in the notes. This is one of those oriental type of  scents that is still quite feminin, but is such a rich smell. The tonka bean makes it a bit sweeter as well, and I love the combination of the herbs with a touch of floral in there as well. Again, this is more of a wintery smell for me, so I don't reach for it that much in Spring/Summer. I'm also too afraid to use it loads as this baby was super expensive! It's the limited edition packaging as well, which you can't really get anymore, but it's normally in a black bottle, like all the other intense colognes.

Jo Malone Blue Agava & Cacao


Blue Agava, vetiver, cinnamon, cacao, lime, grapefruit

Why I like it:

If I had to name one perfume that is my all time favourite, it must be this one. Sadly, they don't make it anymore and this is the very last bottle I own. Knowing that I can't get it anymore, I use it very sparingly, as I will freak out it this one ever runs out :'(  That being said, this fragrance is so beautiful. I'm a big fan of everything that smells of chocolate and cinnamon, and you can really tell these notes are in there. The combination of the more floraly touches make it wearable and feminine. I need to find a perfume that can replace this one, but that will be so difficult... Why do brands always discontinue your favourite products, huh?

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Floral Shock


Bergamot, Pear, Freesia, Orange Blossom, Golden Gardenia, Coffee, Sandalwood, Vanilla

Why I like it:

I've wanted to try the Black Opium for again, and although I think the original one smells just a bit nicer than the Floral Shock, I do think this one is more Spring/Summer appropriate, especially for everyday. But I probably love the vanilla notes in here the most. It makes it sweet, but not too sickening. I'm defintitely going to pick up the regular Black Opium when I finish this one.

Which perfumes are in your rotation at the moment? I'd love to know what you can recommend to me, now that you know which ones I'm into!

Lots of love,
