Fragrance Friday: Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium EDT

If confidence had a scent, it’d be Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium.  This gloriously and unashamedly sexy fragrance is the one I reach for when I need to feel feminine yet strong – it’s the ideal first date perfume as it really does boost the…

Fragrance Friday: Eisenberg Paris I Am

Here we have possibly the most French fragrance I have ever seen and smelled in my life – it is French in every way possible and it’s glorious! I don’t know why, but I wasn’t expecting to like Eisenberg Paris I Am – I think…

Fragrance Friday: Diptyque Essences Insensées

There are few fragrance notes that get me as excited as jasmine does, and there are few brands that produce beautiful jasmine scents as well as Diptyque, so when I clocked the new Essences Insensées was a fragrance built around jasmine, I couldn’t really stop thinking…

Michael Kors Gold Fragrance Collection

Here we have a wonderful example of a beautifully executed collection of fragrances.  The Michael Kors Gold Collection is a trio of fragrances, all housed in “gold-bar-style” packaging that are just so lovely to look at, they make you want to grab and spray –…

Fragrance Friday: Current Loves

I originally put this post together with the view to making it a Summer-themed, fragrance post, before realising that it was turning into a bit of a gush-fest as these are my current favourite fragrance loves.  I think we’ve been pretty lucky this year with…

Fragrance Friday: Shiseido Ever Bloom

I was totally expecting to dislike the Shiseido Ever Bloom fragrance, although I’m not really sure why – maybe it’s because I don’t really associate Shiseido with fragrances? – which is funny really since Shiseido have been making fragrances for over 100 years, but as…

Fragrance Friday: Atelier Cologne’s Vanille Insensée Cologne Absolue

During my pregnancy I met with the creators behind the Atelier Cologne brand and I remember thinking how fascinating they were – each and every scent they created had a kind of play-like story behind it that they’d imagine to create the scent with; to…

Fragrance Friday: Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Sorbet Edition

More Marc Jacobs joy for you today, with the second of the Summery Sorbet editions from the line of Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrances, Daisy Eau So Fresh Sorbet.   Before we begin, I have to say, lovin’ the word play on Eau (oh) So Fresh.…

Fragrance Friday: Roberto Cavalli Paradiso

If Sisley Eau Tropicale was my Summer Scent for 2014, then Roberto Cavalli Paradiso is my 2015 Summer fragrance, as it really does smell like a holiday in a bottle – there we have a total cliché, but it’s true.  I absolutely love a true,…

Fragrance Friday: Diptyque Olène

I quite like creating series based around the sort of products I have in my stash – first there was “Quick Pick Tuesday” which focuses on quick beauty reviews of things I love but don’t want to do a long and rambling review on (although…

Marc Jacobs Daisy Sorbet

How gorgeous are the Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrances? Not only are they beautifully packaged, they contain exciting, interesting and extremely pretty scents that are just a little bit different to the traditional florals, without being so different that they become unwearable as a daily fragrance.…

Jo Loves Candle Shot Creation Experience

Last week I had the rather fabulous experience of meeting Jo Malone to find out more about her most recent creation, the Jo Loves Candle Shot.  I popped along to her gorgeous London store on Elizabeth Street – a must visit for anyone who wants…

Ghost Whisper Rain Perfume

I’ve heard of Ghost fragrances but I’ve never really tried them myself, so I was pleasantly surprised by their newest launch, Ghost Whisper Rain, which, if you can ignore the cheesy title, ticks all the boxes with regards the aesthetics and scent.  The bottle itself…

My Little Chloe Perfumes

Quite possibly the cutest things to ever land on my doorstep, say hello to the My Little Chloe collection, a trio of the cult Chloe fragrances in miniature form.  The three perfumes that have been miniaturised are Roses de Chloe (my personal favourite), L’eau de…
