Lets talk parfume, so what’s your favorite fragrance? In this post I will share my thoughts on my top 4 favorites starting with my least fav 🙂
Chanel Chance– So an old boyfriend back in 2004 bought this perfume for me as a “just because” gift; I was overly ecstatic when I received this gift, BUT the moment I opened the package and got a whiff of this lovey fragrance, I instantly fell in love with it and I’ve been wearing it ever since. This particular perfume reminds me of a sensual floral scent with a hint of sweetness, vanilla, and a light musk aroma, which is actually great for me because I tend not to like an overbearing smelling perfume. However, I do love how it still posses that classic authentic Chanel old school scent. As you can see from my half empty bottle, its time to make a new purchase :-). I’m hooked, there’s no turning back with this one and I will always keep this particular perfume in my collection.
Chanel #5 L’eau and Chanel #5 oil- I would venture out to say that the Chanel #5 L’eau is the younger version of the original Chanel #5. I’ve always found Chanel perfumes to be a bit “old fashion” but they nailed this one. It’s modern, strong and yet gentle. However, there are some things that I like about the original Chanel, it smells rich and classic, even though it reminds me of something my grandmother would wear and it tends to be a bit overwhelming. Chanel L’eau has some of the same components as the original one, but its not as intrusive, its very light, feminine, it has a light powdery undertone (which I love). When I think about the original Chanel # 5, I think of my grandmother generation, but every time I smell or think about the L’eau, It gives me that feeling of youthfulness, fun and flirty. Also, when purchasing L’eau which is a toilette, I bought the Chanel 5 spray oil, because the toilette isn’t as potent as a parfume and doesn’t last very long. I wear these two in conjunction with each other, because the oil aids in the lasting power of the toilette (this last bit of info was a free one ***wink***)
Calvin Klein (Euphoria)– I love this perfume. I would consider this to be my signature fragrance. I believe it mixes well with my body chemistry and more than anyone of these other fragrances, I get the most compliments with this one. It has this “light” sultry aroma that I can’t get enough of. As of lately, this has been my go to perfume.
Viktor & Rolf (Magic Dancing Roses)- This a new one to my collection and is apart of the Viktor Rolf magic collection. A friend of mine introduced me to this brand; its only exclusive at Saks Fifth Avenue, so if you live in the local area, you will have to buy it online. Now its a bit pricey, but its worth every dollar in my opinion. If I had describe this perfume with one word, it would be SEXY. This fragrance oozes sexiness, grown woman, elegance, and confidence. OK, its a unisex fragrance, yes both men and women can wear this(but I can’t imagine a man wearing it). This perfume has different layers, which one of them smells like a hint of roses(I’m definitely not a girl who likes floral or fruity scents AT ALL) but this one is different and unique. It has a sweet, semi-musk, fruity, warm, powdery scent, however with all of the layers, its a subtle aroma. I would put it in the category as a fall/winter fragrance. It’s definitely a mood lifter and has lasting power. Hey I like this fragrance so much, that I’ll even spray a little bit on my wrist before heading to bed 🙂
Be blessed. I hope you all enjoyed this post.
