Favourite Perfumes

Intro:

Just thought I would do a post on my favourite perfumes. These are the ones that I wear a lot and always come back to. I’m not usually a really floral perfume kind of girl as I tend to prefer softer musky scents.

 

 

Elie Saab, Le Parfum:

This is the first ever perfume from Lebanese designer Elie Saab, a sweet but spicy floral mix that focuses on both jasmine and orange blossom but surprises with a warm patchouli and honey base.

 

 

Viktor and Rolf, Flowerbomb:

This yummy scent has top notes of green tea and bergamot, middle notes of jasmine, african orange flower, freesia, rose and orchid, and base notes of musk and patchouli. It’s not one of those sickly sweet fragrances, it’s a rich, expensive sweetness complimented by the musk.
Calvin Klein, Eternity Summer:

When I first tried this perfume I immediately picked up on the orange blossom first and then the musk, it’s a warm, feminine fragrance and lovely and light – as the name says, it really is perfect for summer.

If you like the original ‘Eternity’ then this is the perfect scent for a little something different, its more fruity and floral and the balance between the two is perfect. I have never been a fan of overly floral scents and like the fact that this one has just a hint. I’m completely in love with it!

 

 

The Body Shop, White Musk:

White Musk is a comfortable and velvety female fragrance. It opens with notes of ylang-ylang, galbanum and basil, followed by jasmine, rose, musk and lily,and finally settling with a base of musk along with jasmine, rose, iris, amber, patchouli, vetiver, peach, oakmoss and vanilla. It’s a beautiful, soft, musky, feminine scent.

 

 

The Body Shop, White Musk Libertine:

This has a turkish delight kind of scent with a lovely waft of orchid. It’s a fairly sweet but not sickly, slightly floral, musky fragrance that’s more girly than the original.

If you’re interested in purchasing any of these yummy fragrances I suggest you take a look on amazon as there are usually some amazing deals!

Diego Dalla Palma Snow White and the Huntsman palette

What is it?

A palette partnered with the Snow White and The Huntsman movie containing 6 wearable eye shadows, an eyeliner and a lipstick.

Thoughts?

This palette is really great and contains six very wearable shades for eyes; three shimmery and three matte shades all with appropriate Snow White related names.

Snow, Shield, Mirror Mirror, Fairest, Destiny and Battleground are all beautiful neutral colours and very pigmented. Also included in this palette is The Wicked Queen lipstick a classic blood red and the Dark Night eye pencil in a good deep black.

At £25 for all of this, I think its a bargain. The packaging is cute, the colours are smooth and pigmented and the red lipstick and black liner are make up staples and great quality.

I bought this product from Tesco :

An Overview

First of all, I absolutely adore the packaging, sophisticated and yet gorgeously girly and summery.

When I first tried this perfume I immediately picked up on the orange blossom first and then the musk.

It’s definitely a warm, feminine fragrance and lovely and light – as the name says, it really is perfect for summer.

If you like the original ‘Eternity’ then this is the perfect scent for you to switch it up for summer, its more fruity and floral and the balance between the two is perfect. I have never been a fan of overly floral scents and like the fact that this one has just a hint. I’m completely in love with it!
