Perfumes I Want To Try

To all my American readers/'s your Thanksgiving dinner? I hope it all went well. Time to go for some serious shopping. Good luck with that and hope you guys have fun.

so,back with what this post is all about...

I have a slight obsession with perfumes, but the thing is.. I want to have a signature smell. I'm currently using Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy and I love it, but it's about to be dunzo, so I'm on a hunt for a new perfume.

Sometimes when I go shopping, I just go to the fragrance department and stay there for an hour and smell perfumes(same thing when I'm in Sephora).

I love sweet/fruity scents, but I don't really mind if it has a tinge of floral smell to it. Oh and I love perfumes that smells like you just got out of the shower(that's why I love Fresh perfumes so much!). I'm a sucker for nice packaging too.

Here are some perfumes I tried before:

- Michael Kors' Daisy(sample size)- To floral for me, wasn't in to it that much
- Chanel Madamoiselle(full size)- I love this! It is a classic perfume and can't go wrong with this.
- Escada Moon Sparkle(sample size)- Has a fruity/floral fragrance with a hint of strawberry and apple. Smells good, but you just need the tiniest amount.
- Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue(full size)- classic perfume. I think most of you tried this already. Reminds me of High School days.
- Vera Wang Princess(sample size)- smells light and young and has a musky tinge to it. I didn't really like this.

* I would recommend Chanel Madamoiselle and Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue.

so, those are the perfumes I tried and I'm ready to search for the best one in the market and make it my signature smell.

  1. I love viva la juicy too!
    Anyways i would defo recommend Viktor and Rolf's Flowerbomb. love love love it!

  2. I like YSL Elle, Gucci Envy Me, and I love most Armani ones. Diamonds is the Armani one that I have at the moment.

  3. I want to try the new Alice perfume by Vivienne Westwood.

  4. I just bought Dior's Hypnotic Poison after sniffing perfumes for hours in Sephora and the Bay lol! I want Mademoiselle next

  5. SJP NYC ....fruity and girly and amazing!

  6. love the ones you've tried.
    i'm curious about your new recommendations too, need to go check those out.
    one of the new britney spears... or maybe it's mariah carey's (i'm getting the designs all mixed up) smells like cotton candy (i think it's Mariah's actually..) awful!
    the new Juicy one smells so weird, that hippie one, i was expecting something pleasant, but ugh.! so disappointing.
    I usually don't like any of Estee Lauder BUT i've always loved Beyond Paradise the rainbow coloring one.

  7. burberry brit? It has a sweet dry down that isn't too dessert-y

  8. I was sooo intrigued by the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb before... too curious coz of all the rave about it... I almost bought but I'm glad I got a Sephora newsletter that included a sample of that perfume.. I applied it on my wrist & I did not like it at all... it was too strong & had a musky, granmaish, guyish scent to it... but we all have different taste so I might not like what a lot of people do... btw, have you tried Versace's Bright Crystal & Chanel's Chance??? those 2 are my faves ATM...

  9. lol that balenciaga perfume was on my mind earlier :)

    and i love d&g light blue too!

  10. p.s. how about burberry brit? heehee..

  11. ive been wanting vera wang princess for a long time but u wont recommend it?

  12. @ClassyandFabulous- I like really sweet scents, but I do like the princess. I just won't purchase it again. :)

  13. You've got such a lovely blog! :) I love Light Blue by Dolce and Gabbana. Madamoiselle is a favorite too. I also like Into the Blue (Escada) and Happy by Clinique.
