Perfume Collection

Another obsession of mine... >__< I really have to stop all these bad for purse obsessions =/ .  Anyways part of the obsession probably comes from the fact that my part time job (not chop suey one) is me being surrounded by perfume, I work part time at a perfume counter and so because of this I always know if theres a new perfume out etc and hence this makes me want to buy it.  Bonus of this job is I get to try before I buy =P alot of perfumes that I actually love smell and turn weird with my body temperature/chemistry/not sure what it is and so I would definitely advise everyone to try fragrances out on your skin before diving in there.

Perfumes do actually cost quite alot of money, ranging from £5 to ridiculously high amounts of like £100 odd pounds a bottle.  Most of mine thankfully sit in the middle range of around £30-£40 apart from my holy grail fragrance.

Just to let everyone have a look at the perfumes I have actually paid for and bought (and some of them used up a considerable amount) for myself.  It actually takes alot for me to take the plunge and buy a  new perfume, I always have second thoughts.

From left to right:

1: Hollister brand:  Not sure of the name of this one, but its one of those musky sweet scents that basically all my perfumes smell like.  50ml I got this for around £25 if i remember correctly.

2: Dolce and Gabbana, The One. This one is actually less musk and more sickly sweet, someone said this smelled like bananas :s im not sure what kinda bananas they eat haha. Quite a weird smell I do agree though, I'd take a smell if you get the chance, it is a hate or love one.

3:  Burberry, Brit.  This one smells a little bit unisex and thats why I love it, its a bit different from your usual girly scent, this was a 30ml in a gift set leftover from christmas and with my staff discount I got this for less than £8 haha! bargain! Ive nearly used all this one up and will find a day or two to try and use this up to contribute to my project 10 pan :P

4:  Justin Bieber, Someday.  Obviously I was gonna have to get my hands on this one! I already mentioned it before in my previous blog posts, but this one really is lovely and sweet.  Some celebrity perfumes smell too sweet, fruity and tacky, this one actually is lovely and not too sweet.  I got plenty compliments when I wore this at work one day.  P.s all proceeds go to charity.

5:  Vera Wang, Princess.  It actually took me roughly about 2 years to finally buy this haha.  This is the one that without thinking I always spray on when im at work and have no other 'cravings' its such a sweet vanilla scent.  My work collegue who also works with perfumes did comment on me wearing this and said how vanilla-y this smelt on me and smelled alot better on me than her.  Im not gonna lie this is one of the reasons why I think I actually went ahead and bought it :P.  Girls are a sucker for compliments haha!

6:  Dior Addict 2.  I dont actually know how ive managed to use this up because when I smell it now it smells too citrus-y for my liking.  I know my friend wear this though and it always reminds me of her =] smells great on her, its just weird on me sadly =/.

And lastly, my holy grail (and im sure it is for plenty other girls out there too)

Viktor and Rolf, Flowerbomb.  Has to be the sweetest perfume you will come across.  Ive already gone through a 30ml bottle and this is the bigger 50ml bottle now which I have used almost half of in the space of roughly 6 months.  I do use this pretty much every single day and if I didnt love this one so much I would probably show more love to my other perfumes.  Since getting my hands on this perfume a year and a half ago it has become inseperable, I only reach out to the others when this ones unavailable or I know im staying in, or Im not going anywhere special.  If you get a chance to smell this (or me) do ! haha.

Wow.  Pretty long blog post from me which involved alot of typing which is rare haha.  Hope I havent rambled on too much in this blog and well done to those who didnt give up halfway and are still here. <3

I have smelt alot/most perfumes/aftershaves out in the drugstore if anyone needs help in choosing something Id be more than happy to help. =]
