Hey guys! So today I will be sharing my perfume collection. I did a poll on Instagram (follow me at @xoxoxoleelee) and you guys said you were interested in seeing my collection. Now I’m not a huge perfume person, I don’t even put it on every day. I also have a weak nose, so I gravitate towards stronger scents. But I have amassed a small collection – some of which are unfortunately not available anymore (rip). Anyways, before I begin just want to note that I am not a huge sweet/fruity perfume person. Actually all these perfumes has musk as one of their notes soooo…… I definitely have a perfume type haha!
First is the Kat Von D Saint Eau du Parfum. Now I’m not a huge Kat Von D fan, but god do I love this perfume. The main notes are vanilla, musk and jasmine. I like this perfume because it’s the perfect balance of floral and musky. It’s light enough to wear everyday day, but the musk adds that little something to it. I also think that the bottle is gorgeous as well.
Today is a sad day, because I found out that my beloved Marc Jacobs Mod Noir is discontinued. I have this in a roller ball, and was planning on eventually getting it in the bottle but clearly that’s not happening anymore. I liked Mod Noir because it’s more bright and sophisticated compared to some of my other perfumes. The notes are greens, gardenias and musk. I liked wearing this perfume when I wanted something more fresh but not sweet. I will enjoy this perfume to the last drop!
The most heady and sensual of all my perfumes is the Lancome La Nuit Tresor. This is the scent I like to wear on a night out. The notes are pink peppercorn, bergamot, rose and almond blossom, white musk and tonka bean accord. The peppercorn adds a bit of spiciness so it’s not just heavy all around. This scent is also super long lasting. If I put it on at night I can smell it the next morning. A little too heavy for everyday wear, I love it when I want to feel ~sexy~.
Another perfume I think is discontinued is the True Religion Hippie Chic. I’m not really surprised that this is not sold anymore, this was actually the first perfume I ever owned. This bad boy is like six years old (the fact that it’s still going shows you how much I wear perfume). This one is more floral and fruity compared to the other perfumes I own. The notes are raspberry, pomegranate, apple, hibiscus, jasmine, lily of the valley, wood and musk. The wood and musk base notes help balance out the sweetness. This is a great everyday scent, and I would love to find something similar once I finish it.
My most recent addition to my collection I purchased while I was in France. The Fragonard Etoile is a very clean, almost unisex scent. The notes are bergamot, lemon, apple, ginger, gardenia, lily of the valley, jasmine, cedarwood, amber and musk. This is a very fresh scent, perfect for summer. I’m happy that I choose this one because I don’t have anything in my collection quite like it, so I’ve kinda rounded out my collection.
And that is my little perfume collection! I’m super curious, let me know in the comments what your go to perfume/scent is! 🙂
