My Favourite Scents of 2016



Prior to this year I've been very much a nice perfume for events, body spray for every day (Victoria Secret to be precise they are my faves and I think I have about 90 oops). I still am a little that way, but my perfume collection has grown significantly so now I don't feel as guilty using perfume for a nip to Tesco if I so desire. I have this huge obsession with smelling good, and I don't mean like not smelling bad, no one want's to smell bad now do they (well I would bloody hope so anyway) I just mean I like a fragrance that lasts and makes people who I waltz past stop and want to ask me what perfume I'm wearing, you know what I mean? Let me just say before I go on about perfumes that Victoria Secret body sprays really are good for this and paired with their matching body lotions they pack a right punch. My favourite is Coconut Passion and we are so lucky in Manchester to have a store in the Trafford Centre so they are so easily accessible without having to have them shipped from the website.

Anywhoooo enough rambling, I've been pushing Victorias Secret to the side (sorry Vicks) and replacing them with the above beauties recently and the first is Paco Rabanne Olympea. The bottle first off is lovely, Greek Goddess themed with touches of Rose Gold (WE ALL LOVE ROSE GOLD C'MON). I find this so fresh and perfect for everyday, it has 3 different layers starting off with Green Mandarin, Ginger Lily and Jasmine then moving on to 'Salty' Vanilla and finally Cashmere Wood - Ambergris. The scent is so feminine and fruity with vanilla undertones. This has been my go to daily scent however I do have to spray it again every now and again throughout the day but I have no problem with that and I think I probably just get used to it!

The next was a duty free purchase on my way to Dublin for New Year, Marc Jacobs Decadence  a little more pricey, but I mean come on?! Look at the bottle! Apart from being very heavy (if I take it out with me I have to leave the lid at home because that shit weighs a ton) it's so sassy and different you can't not love a handbag shaped perfume bottle. This fragrance has this gorgeous, sensual (cringe) and deep woody scent which seriously lasts and smells so different than any perfume I've ever owned. It has notes of Italian Plum, Bulgarian Rose and Liquid Amber which is seriously so good. I can smell this bad boy on me for hours. Perfect night out scent!

What are your favourite fragrances?

  2. Coconut Passion is my favourite body spray too! I'm always so intrigued by Mar Jacobs perfume bottles, the first time I saw someone Decadence, it took me a while to figure out it wasn't a handbag. I haven't had a chance to smell it yet or see it in person but it looks so luxurious.

  7. Victoria's body sprays smells so good, when I don't feel like wearing perfumes these are what I reach for. I smelled decadence in the store and I really like the scent, I think it would be a perfect winter smell. Also the bottle looks so chic! x

  10. I really want to give Decadence a go as it sounds amazing from the way you describe it! My favourite is Armani Diamonds but I've also fallen in love with Valentino Donna which I got my Mum for Christmas :)

  11. I love the Marc Jacobs bottle, I've not heard of the Olympea but it sounds lovely! One of my favourite fragrances is actually Rosie for Autograph. It's not expensive at all but competes with my higher-end favourites.
