PERFUMES WE ABSOLUTELY ADORE

I HAVE TO SAY THAT TONKA 25 BY LE LABO IS AT THE MOMENT THE HIGHEST UP ON MY WISHLIST. I LOVE A SWEET SCENT, BUT THIS ONE IS SUBTLE AND GROWN UP, TOO. IT’S MUSKY, DARK AND WARM AND I JUST REALLY WANNA BUY IT. - J

BRONZE GODDESS IS MY HOLIDAY SCENT. IT SMELLS SWEET, SULTRY AND SENSUAL. IT’S ONE THAT YOU PUT ON AND YOU’RE READY TO GO OUT. IT’S HONESTLY A SUMMER NIGHT IN A PERFUME (CHEESY BUT TRUE!) - VANILLA, COCONUT AND AMBER, DO I HAVE TO SAY MORE? - J

HIS SCENTS ARE ON ANOTHER LEVEL. CAN WE JUST AGREE? ON MY WISH LIST IS VANILLA FATALE BECAUSE EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT INTO THE SWEET SMELLS OF VANILLA, GENIUS TOM HAD A PLAN: HE PAIRED IT WITH MAHAGONI AND FRANGIPANI, CORIANDER AND SAFRAN AND ROASTED COFFEE (WOW). SO IT’S SMOKEY AND SENSUAL SOMEHOW. I LOVE THAT IT’S UNISEX. IT’S EXPENSIVE AS HELL, THAT’S WHY IT’S ON MY WISHLIST. - T

EMILY WEISS CAN DO NO WRONG, CAN’T SHE? SO LET ALONE ITS DESCRIPTION “SKIN SMELL ENHANCER” IS EPIC. SO GLOSSIER YOU ISN’T YOUR CLASSIC PERFUME. IT RATHER ENHANCES YOUR PERSONAL SMELL WHICH IS SO UNIQUE SO IT’S HARD TO DESCRIBE. IT PROBABLY SMELLS A LITTLE DIFFERENT TO EVERYONE. IT’S AN UNCOMPLICATED, EASY GOING BUT MEMORABLE SCENT. CLEAN, WARM, SPARKLING, CREAMY AS THE CREATORS PUT IT! IN OTHER WORDS: ONLY YOU CAN FIND OUT WHEN YOU TRY IT! - T

ROSE OF NO MAN’S LAND BY BYREDO IS MY SIGNATURE SCENT FOR A FEW YEARS NOW - AND THERE IS NOTHING LIKE OPENING A NEW BOTTLE. I LOVE HOW THE PINK PEPPER AND TURKISH ROSE PETALS UNFOLD AND IT’S FRUITY BUT ALSO AIRY. IT ALSO HAS RASPBERRY BLOSSOMS (ONE OF MY FAVORITE MEMORIES AS A KID IS BERRY PICKING KN MY GRANDMA’S GARDEN WITH HER) AND WHITE AMBER. I GET ASKED SO MUCH ABOUT THIS SCENT (BUT I THINK EVERYONE WHO WEARS BYREDO DOES), THE SCENTS ARE NOT ONLY EXTREMELY SPECIAL BUT LONG LASTING AND INTENSE WITHOUT BEING OVERPOWERING. - T

BEACH WALK BY MARGIELA WILL ALWAYS BE MY FIRST TRUE LOVE WHEN IT COMES TO PERFUME. THIS PERFUME SIMPLY DOES EVERYTHING RIGHT, SPRAYING IT ON GETS ME INTO A GOOD MOOD IMMEDIATELY. IT WORKS WITH EVERYTHING AND SMELLS LIKE ACTUAL SUN ON YOUR SKIN. IT’S FRESH AND SWEET AT THE SAME TIME, IT’S GOT CITRUSY NOTES BUT ALSO THE SWEETNESS OF COCONUT AND YLANG-YLANG. - J

BAL D’AFRIQUE BY BYREDO IS MY ABSOLUTE GO TO. I USE THIS PRETTY MUCH EVERY DAY, IT’S SIMPLY DELICIOUS. IT’S GOT CEDAR WOOD, MARIGOLD AND NEROLI AND IT’S MY ALL YEAR AROUND FAVOURITE. I CAN’T IMAGINE MYSELF EVER NOT OWING THIS SCENT. - J

I LOVE EXPLORING NEW BRANDS BUT ALSO I DO LOVE ME A CLASSIC BRAND LIKE ELIE SAAB. TBH WHAT FIRST WHAT DREW ME TO IT WAS THE NAME: GIRL OF NOW - DON’T WE ALL WANNA BE THAT? SO THIS IS ON MY WANNA TRY LIST. I READ THE INGREDIENTS LIST AND NOTICED THESE ARE ALL THE THINGS I LOVE: ALMOND, PISTACHIO, ORANGE, MANDARIN COMBINED WITH THE BRAND’S SIGNATURE PATCHOULI NOTE. CAN’T WAIT TO TRY! - T
