Something I often get asked about and complimented on is my choice in perfume, and 95% of the time the answer receives the reply "I've never heard of that" so I have come to the conclusion some of the favourite scents,  are kept a little too secret. They smell great, and deserve to be talked about more - so I thought I'd do a full blog post on some of my most worn fragrances. I am also a fan of mixing scents, to create something unique. So often, I'll be wearing more than one when asked, which tends to come as a surprise, but I think it's fun to experiment and see what works together. 

As I've mentioned before, I am truly awful at describing scents and doing them justice, so I'm going to include some notes from various websites to give some idea of what they are actually are like.
 Of course, if you like the sound of something I'd definitely recommend heading to a store where you can give it a whiff.

Dior Hypnotic Poison 

 Perhaps one of the more known of my selection. I wear this fragrance when I really want to feel special when I've got something nice planned. Every time I catch a whiff of myself when I wear this, I fall in love with it all over again

 Notes from Dior website: The mystery of Dior’s legendary forbidden fruit lives on in a magical, modern philter that blends femininity with boldness. 

Four contrasting facets 
– intoxicating bitter almond and carvi, opulent Sambac jasmine, mysterious Jacarandra and sensuous vanilla and musk 
– make for a compelling, bewitching fragrance fusion. Intoxicating and extravagant

Molecule 01 by Eccentric Molecules

This is by far one of my favourite fragrance, for a few reasons, it's supposed to smell different on each person who wears it, it's great for mixing, I always get asked what I'm wearing after I've sprayed this, and it only has one ingredient. The only downside is, I don't love the bottle, and why doesn't it have a lid?

Notes from the Harvey Nichols website: Molecule 01 contains only the aroma-chemical Iso E Super, which, on its own, is less of a fragrance than an effect. The wearer may notice a subtle, velvety, woody note which will vanish, then re-surface after some time. More than this, she or he will notice the impact the fragrance has on other people, because Molecule 01 lends an indefinable allure to the wearer. In fact, its effect is almost pheromonic.

Ambre Passion by Laura Mercier 

I think this scent gets the most compliments. My Mum, my Sister and I have all became hooked on it since we discovered it. As you can see, it's well-loved.

Notes from the Space NK website: Splash on a little Laura Mercier Ambre Passion for an aromatic explosion of different scents.
At the centre of this perfume is the fragrant amber scent, a mix of feminine sweetness and the masculine musky, woodsy aroma. Combined with the soft, sweet smell of vanilla and the pungent aroma of sandalwood, musk and cedar wood, this fragrance is a pleasant contradiction in aromas. In addition to these aromas, patchouli’s sharp, earthy fragrance adds a sexy, sensual and velvety quality to the scent. Both soft and subtle while musky and earthy, the amber and the softer vanilla help balance out the strong and calmer scents that make up the olfactory explosion.

 Jimmy Choo

 This is another one the whole family seemed to invest in once we smelt it.

Notes from the Jimmy Choo website: Imagine femininity, luxury and style…bottled: introducing Jimmy Choo, the original fragrance.

A fragrance enveloping the woman with sensuality and seduction, with warm, rich and woody depths. Inspired by modern women - strong, empowered, beautiful, seductive and alluring with a mysterious sense of confident sensuality.

Angel by Thierry Mugler

This fragrance I've had a long relationship with, from remembering my sister wearing it as a teenager, and thinking it smelt disgusting, to falling in love with the scent as an adult.

Notes from the Perfume Shop website:
Angel is a mouth-watering delicious and sensual fragrance, a delicate blend of sweet Red Fruits, Soft Caramel, Honey and Praline combined with the captivating power of Patchouli and Vanilla. Angel is a luxurious, chic and timeless fragrance with a seductive edge.

Vanillé Eau Gourmande by Laura Mercier

It seems Laura Mercier has an underrated perfume selection - as two have now made my favourites. The scent is slighter sweeter and lighter than that rest.

Notes from the Laura Mercier website: Captures the essence of vanilla orchid & vanilla liqueur, vanilla musk, heliotrope, daylily, bourbon vanilla, sandalwood & amber.

Please let me know some of your go-to fragrances, I'd love to discover more!
