I have a pretty small perfume collection as I used to just stick to my favourites, but I’ve been trying to branch out more recently. I also think that perfumes can make perfect gifts this time of year – this Monsoon* fragrance in Rose Gold is perfect for my mum! She used to love the original ones a few years back so we were both really happy to see their new collection – the bottle is absolutely gorgeous and comes in a rose gold & white box. This one is £25 on Monsoon online for 30ml or £35 for 100ml. It comes in a lightweight bottle with gold accents – perfect for accessorising your dresser! The fragrance’s top notes are lemon, fruit and ozonic scents. These are then layered with rose, tuberose, neroli and cyclamen and then the base notes are eastern wood, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber. I don’t know that you could smell all these separately unless you’re an expert but I personally love the scent!
I also received the Lovelily* fragrance from Accessorize. This has gorgeous packaging – I especially love the lid of the bottle! It reminds me of those lip balms with pressed flowers suspended inside! So – the scent itself. The top notes are Bergamot, Raspberry and Orange, middle notes are Jasmine and Lily of the Valley and the base is Vanilla and Musk. I definitely can smell notes of the raspberry & I think the Vanilla helps to mature the scent a little so it doesn’t smell too young! This perfume is only £19 for 75ml on Accessorize online.
