A good scent always completes my look, you can never see it, but if you smell good, you feel good. I love that brands are so creative with their bottle designs too, they look pretty on the vanity, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll collect them! I have such a hard time throwing a pretty bottle away. I want to keep it forever.
I am a perfume fiend, I love to smell good all the time and I wanted to share a few perfumes I am absolutely loving right now, and it really wasn’t a difficult choice for me. I hope some of these options will also give you some gift ideas too.
Marc Jacobs Decadence
Now I think Marc Jacobs knocked it out of the bag (literally!) with this one. Decadence will make the perfect gift for anyone who loves handbags (I am obsessed with them) and this bottle has the most luxury gold chain and tassel which really makes it look like a real bag. This is a bottle which I would never throw away because it would certainly come in handy as a blog prop. Can we talk about the python cap though? It looks so exotic and I just love that Marc Jacobs captured the real essence of a handbag in this bottle. 10/10 for packaging and if you want to treat yourself, I highly recommend this perfume. If you’re thinking of buying this as a Christmas present, don’t hesitate.
Top notes include Iris, Saffron and Plum.
Heart notes include Iris, Jasmine and Bulgarian Rose.
Base notes include Papyrus, Vetiver and Liquid Amber.
Decadence boasts indulgence at it’s finest.
Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum Spray
I have been loving wearing Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum of late. It smells so fruity and fresh but woody at the same time. I like the woody undertone it gives off and it lasts all day on me. Longevity is something I always look for in a scent and whilst fruity scents are great for Summer, I really feel the woodiness counteracts the sweet scent and gives off an even balance.
Top notes include Pear Nectar and sweet Italian Orange.
Heart notes include Tiger Orchard.
Base notes include Toffee and Indonesian Patchouli.
The glass bottle design is very bold yet simple and if you want to make a statement with your scent, this is one to try.
Gucci Envy Me
I’ve been using Gucci Envy Me for years now and it never fails me. This is one of my favourite everyday scents to wear and I think it will make a great gift if you’re buying for someone who LOVES Pink, and is a fan of Gucci. I am a fan of both so this works for me. The perfume is housed in a clear glass bottle which is decorated with the Gucci logo all over in Pink and the White lid is a nice contrast with the Pink. If you’re a girly girl, you will like this scent. It has hints of musk and the scent lingers all day. 10 years later and I’m still not sick of this.
Top notes include Peony, Pineapple, Pink Pepper and Peach.
Heart notes include Musk, White Tea, Litchi and Pomegranate.
Base notes include Teak Wood, Sandalwood and Tonka Bean.
I simply love Gucci Envy and reach for it nearly everyday.
