A Closer Look: Perfumes

I first showed you my perfume collection in January 2012 some of which are still there today!

Tom Ford Santal Blush EDP 50ml - this is my second bottle and it's nearly done sob! One of my favourite scents. See my review here.

Chanel Sycomore EDT 75ml - love this vertivert scent. See my review here.

Diptyque Philosykos roll on - the best fig scent out there (in my opinion!) It has figgy and fresh green notes.

Aftelier Perfumes* - Cepes & Tuberose EDP, Wild Roses EDP, Cacoa EDP and Cuir de Gardenia Extrait - some of the most unusual perfumes I've ever tried. See my review here.

Diptyque eau Rose roll on 20ml - adore rose scents.  See my review here.

Illamasqua Freak EDP 30ml - first tried this via a beauty box sample and just loved it. 

Shay & Blue Atropa Belladona 30ml - one of my favourite new finds. See my review here. I've just found out that Shay & Blue are now stocked in M&S Beauty Hall - be heading there soon!

Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia EDP 30ml - this is my second bottle. Love this floral scent.  See my review here.

kai perfume oil - I'm nearly finished this one. It's one of my favourites. With white flowers and freshness. Only negative is it's price.

Annick Goutal Mandragore EDT 30ml - a fruity, minty and fresh scent.

Cowshed Gorgeous Cow Perfume Oil roll on - a really wearable scent.  See my thoughts here.

PG Embrace EDP 30ml* - one of the nicest natural perfumes I've ever tried. See my review here.

Jimmy Choo EDP 60ml - a fruity floral scent. Probably wouldn't re-purchase as I've grown a bit tired of it (third bottle).

Kiehl's Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit aromatic mist 30ml - really like this light fruity floral. See my review here

Jurlique Essence of Rose Roll-on Fragrance Oil 11ml - huge rose lover and this is gorgeous. 

Balm Balm Mandarin single note EDP - I got this in a souk souk box. Fresh and Fruity.

Abahna Frangipani & Orange Blossom EDP - my favourite Abahna scent.  See my review here.

Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow 12ml Perfume Gel - see my review here.

  7. I have to say I don't have any of these in my collection. I'm not a great perfume wearer and I do tend to just stick to trial sizes and freebies but I have to say I really like the Lady Gaga one even though I'm not a big celebrity follower x
