Five Great Gourmand Perfumes
Christmas is a time of year where you can wear shimmery eye make-up, glitter nails, sparkly jumpers and sparkly costume jewellery… all as part of the same outfit! Brilliant! Complete your look with a beautiful gourmand fragrance which will make you feel just as sparkly as you look! I compiled a post filled with five of my favourites, ladies, here are five great gourmand perfumes! Enjoy!
Shay & Blue Salt Caramel
Shay & Blue’s Salt Caramel perfume is so delicious, I can barely handle it! What can I say, it truly does smell like rich, liquid caramel with a hint of tangy sea salt. Along side these main accords is the sweetness of vanilla and tonka bean with a rich sophisticated sandalwood and whisky notes. If you think it sounds sickly, you are wrong, there is something so wonderfully warm, comforting and delicious about this fragrance, yet it still has a air of sophistication and elegance to it. I could OD on this fragrance easily!
Penhaligon’s Equinox Bloom
Penhaligon’s Equinox Bloom is inspired by the English tradition of afternoon tea, think creamy Chantilly, sweet frangipani and brown Sugar, mixed with a floral garland of violet leaves, orange blossom and jasmine. It’s unashamedly feminine, sweet, addictive and delicious!
When Prada invented Prada Candy, I’m pretty sure they were having a ‘more is more’ moment! I can remember when it was launched, everything from the bottle to the advert felt fresh and exciting. It broke the rules, no other fragrance house at this time was making a high quality perfume which was sweet, playful and delicious. Prada Candy contains notes of caramel, amber, vanilla and powdery musk tones. Beautiful and oh-so-fabulous!
Nina Ricci Eau de parfum
Nina Ricci Eau de parfum is a fairytale fragrance filled with sweet fruity-floral notes of lemon, lime, apple, praline, peony and musk. The praline note is what really makes this fragrance special, it adds a sweetness and creaminess to the fruits and subtle florals and even the sharp lemon at the top turns into candy lemon drops! Sassy enough for a teenager, sophisticated enough for a woman with a sweet tooth! Just as wonderful on the inside as it is on the outside!
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire
Finally, Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire is a classic gourmand fragrance, it contains notes of blueberry, candy floss, vanilla, rose and sandalwood. Where Nina Ricci is more of a fruity gourmand, La Petite Robe Noire is more of a floral gourmand. The candy floss accord is so sweet and delicious, all the fun of the fair, without a toothache the next day! I can never resist a little Guerlain!
So, there we have it, five great gourmand perfumes! Comment below if you wear any of these, I would love to hear your thoughts!
