Estee Lauder ‘Beautiful Belle’

Maybe I’ve been living under a rock, but I’ve only just discovered Estee Lauder’s Beautiful Belle! It’s a wonderfully pretty, romantic and carefree fragrance which will make you feel like a star. A blend of Lychee, Mimosa, Rose Petals, Orange Flower, Gardenia and Marzipan Musk. It’s as charming as it is addictive and it’s the perfect perfume for a young woman who wants to feel flirty but elegant. The powdery trail gives it’s a real ‘Old Hollywood’ vibe!

Elizabeth Arden ‘My Fifth Avenue’

My Fifth Avenue is the latest fragrance from Elizabeth Arden and it celebrates the power, energy and ambition that every woman feels on Fifth Avenue, New York. This street appears in countless books, movies and TV shows, it’s as classic as the Empire State Building, but with a power we can feel and harness to create something amazing. This fruity floral perfume contains notes of lemon, mandarin, violet leaves, lotus flower, jasmine, musks, amber and cedarwood. It’s really fun, fresh, breezy and bright. Delightful and fabulous… it’s also making me want to take a trip to NYC pronto!

miller harris rose silence perfume

Miller Harris ‘Rose Silence’

One of my all time favourite fragrances and I’ll probably never stop banging on about how much I love this fragrance and how good it makes me feel to wear! I’m talking about Miller Harris Rose Silence, it’s a really modern rose perfume, which is light a breezy with it’s mandarin and blackcurrant, but has a heart of rich, full, delightful roses! It’s really special and just as perfect for day as it is the evening. I’ll never tire of wearing this one!

lancome perfume

Lancome ‘La Vie Est Belle’

Lancome’s La Vie Est Belle translates into Life is Beautiful. Isn’t that lovely? This perfume wants you to live your best life! Filled with notes of orange blossom, jasmine and iris,  blackcurrant and pear, it feels classic yet modern and the base of patchouli, vanilla and praline gives it a little something-something which will make you want to spritz on time and time again. There’s something about this combination orange florals and unexpected fruits which I just can’t get enough of! If you love attention grabbing night-time fragrances, you need to try this!

moschino perfume gold fresh

Moschino ‘Gold Fresh Couture’

The sassiest perfume in town! Some people love it, others hate it. This is my Marmite! Moschino Gold Fresh Couture makes me feel like a super hip version of myself. Filled with notes of mandarin, bergamot, ylang ylang, white peony, osmanthus, woods and patchouli. It smells fresh, gold and like I imagine JLo to smell at her finest. It’s my favourite of all the Moschino Fresh perfumes and whilst I admit I’m utterly obsessed with the bottle, the perfume inside is pretty awesome too!

moschino perfume gold fresh

Shay & Blue ‘Blood Oranges’

Finally, another of my all time favourite fragrances, it could only be, Shay & Blue Blood Oranges. This perfume is EVERYTHING! It makes me feel alive when I wear it! It’s so zesty and juicy and uplifting and fabulous. Shay & Blue are a relatively new perfume brand, so if you don’t know them, I won’t hold it against you, as long as you promise to look them up! Their fragrances are so fresh and natural, simple yet impactful, plus they are really affordable. Not because they compromise on quality (which is flawless, FYI) but because it was really important to the founder, Dom De Vetta that everyone could afford to smell incredible and never have to save their best perfumes for special occasions. Life is too short for that kinda nonsense! Blood Oranges contains notes of juicy blood oranges, leather, amber and musk. It’s smells like the orange groves of your dreams and it makes me feel amazing!

So, there we have it, six fabulous fragrances which will make you feel as amazing as you smell and just a reminder, don’t save your best perfumes for special occasions. Every day should be special, there’s nothing wrong with wearing peonies and pyjamas!
