Tuesday Top 5: Fragrances!

My perfume preferences change on a nearly daily basis, but these are the ones I keep coming back to.



-Bottega Veneta Eau L'egere: My newest addition to the collection, and I can see this being my signature scent of 2014! It's leathery, it's powdery -- truly a walking contradiction of a scent in of itself. For an EDT, it lasts quite a while throughout the day. The EDP, on the other hand, is an entirely different beast and a tad too strong for my liking.

-Jessica Simpson I Fancy You: I'll admit to liking this perfume. It's feminine and inviting in a subtle way. It's very inoffensive making it a great choice for those who are in a work setting where scents is one thing that must be taken into consideration.

-Especially Escada Delicate Notes: Especially Escada's softer version, it screams carefree and, quite possibly, springtime when the flowers are blooming. I still wear it all year round, as I'm a fan of floral fragrances. It's my go-to on days when I'm not sure which to reach for.

-I Love New York for Mothers: Tangerine is a common note present in many of the scents I fancy, and this is no exception. However, this has strong sillage, not to mention a complexity that many perfumes lack. It's fresh. It's spicy. It's also the one I get the most compliments, so of course, it has to make the list Smiley Tongue

-Chloe: The rate I went through this bottle is quite scary, but it goes to show how well-loved it is. It was my signature scent this year, and I'm holding on to the last few sprays till the end of the year. It's a beautiful and classic fragrance, and the addition of lychee made it that much better.

Ohhh thank you!

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Fragrances!

1 Dior Addict - Original Navy Bottle

2. YSL's Manifesto

3. My "fresh" mix- Mixture of DKNY Green Apple and Ralph Lauren's Ralph

4 Victoria's Secret Pink

5 Abercrombie Fierce- this stuff just brings back the good ole days of first loves and high school football games


Re: Tuesday Top 5: Fragrances!

I agree that the original Dior Addict is probably the best smelling of them all!

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Fragrances!

Oh, my, how do I pick just 5?  I guess right now this list will do:


1) Guerlain Filtre d'amour (LE from 2000 and I only wear on very special occasions, but I love it and can't keep it from my list)

2) Lancome La vie est belle (might be what I wear most)

3) Gucci Flora Eau Fraiche (I put this away and took out regular Flora recently but I love this more)

4)Victoria's Secret Angel

5) Bvlgari Amethyste


(But that leaves out DKNY Golden Delicious, Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir, Balenciaga Florabotanica and so many other things, sigh)

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Fragrances!

I always lean towards the Eau Fraiche version of most fragrances for some odd reason. What do you think of the Bvlgari Mon jasmin Noir L'eau Exquise?

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Fragrances!

i love la vie est belle! that may be the one item that ends up on my christmas list this year Smiley Happy 

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Fragrances!

1. CB I hate perfume Cradle of Light (all time favorite but hideously expensive)

2. Chanel no 19 EDP

3. Robert Piguet Fracas

4. Serge Lutens/Shiseido Feminite du Bois

5. Guerlain Attrape Couer


That was really tough. I also love Robert Piguet Mademoiselle, Serge Lutens a la nuit, Serge Lutens bois de citronnier, Frederic Malle Carnal flower, Tom Ford Black orchid, Narciso Rodriguez for her EDT, Hermes Rose Ikebana . . . ok, I'll stop now.
