I thought I’d do a little post on my five favourite perfumes. My “Five Favourites” posts are usually quite popular, and I’ve never really blogged about the perfumes I wear.
I tend to go for not so ~known~ brands, although this usually changes after a few years!

Viktor & Rolf – Flowerbomb: I’m pretty sure everyone will have heard of this, I’ve had it for about two years now, my dad bought me back a 100ml bottle which cost around Β£100! So much money, but it’s lasted me so long. My old flatmate told me about it, she had a tiny sample of it and I had never smelt anything so gorgeous. I’m actually surprised about how many people come into work asking for it (we’ve only just started selling the 100ml bottle), especially as I’ve had it for so long!
When I first got it, literally no one had heard of it but now it seems a bit more popular and I’m getting a bit sick of it!
I’m terrible at describing the notes in fragrances, and there is nothing on their website which describes it, apart from “floral” so we’ll go with that. It has notes of bergmot, jasmine & green tea. The grenade shaped bottle is meant to signify the “explosive” nature of the scent.

Chloe – Chloe: I got this for Christmas last year, I had sprayed the tester strip and shoved it in my shopping bag when I was in town. I kept smelling it and it took me so long to work out what smelt so amazing! I always love perfumes more when I’ve left them to develop. This is an Eau de Parfum so even though it’s just a 30ml bottle, a little really does go a long way.
I love the bottle too, so lovely! It also smells quite floral, containing freesia, lily of the valley & peony notes.

Chanel – Chance: Graeme bought this for me sometime last year, I think after coming back from another tour. I absolutely love this, I love how a scent can take you back somewhere so easily. This reminds me of Paris and also Russia last year. Such a fresh smelling perfume, with notes of hyacinth, pineapple, musk and vanilla. Chance is French for “luck”.

Viktor & Rolf – Eau Mega: Another V&R perfume, I got this about a year ago but I don’t think a lot of people have heard of it due to it being overshadowed by Flowerbomb. I actually prefer this to Flowerbomb at the moment, I’m not sure why but I’m just attracted to less known scents!
I adore the bottle too, to spray you squeeze the V&R logo on the gold lid. It is a play on of the Greek letter Omega (Eau Mega…) and has notes of musk, violet leaf, pear and peony.
It’s not as sickly sweet as Flowerbomb, but it really is such a gorgeous scent. One I’ve been wearing a lot more recently.

Marc Jacobs – Daisy Eau So Fresh: I got this as an early valentines present from my boyfriend this year. It was a limited ed. exclusive to Harvey Nichols but can now be bought anywhere. It’s a summer scent, so contains less alcohol (alcohol and the sun can cause the skin to dry out, so summer scents usually have a lower alcohol scent) which means it doesn’t stay on the skin for long. I love this more than the Daisy perfume but admittedly it’s staying power isn’t great. The top notes are grapefruit, raspberry and pear.
I absolutely love the bottle too! Such a lovely variation of Daisy which I think I shall be buying soon!

Like I said, I’m terrible at describing scents so I got a little help fromΒ Fragrantica.

  • absolute**

  • SO jealous you have Viktor + Rolfe Flowerbomb, i have wanted that for so long!! It is just my dream perfume, haha. Love your blog Xxx

  • You really like fresh scents! I love my flowerbomb too, all the others smell horrid on me haha. My best friend has chanel chance and daisy and they smell amazing on her.

  • The Chloe one is just lovely – I need to get a new bottle! The rest I have not tried yet, but I need to stop trying perfumes! I have 4 that are my go to scents already!

  • I have to admit I’ve never heard of the Flowerbomb perfume until this post. πŸ˜› I really want to get my hands on a Daisy perfume, I’ve got a solid perfume but it’s not really the same and I keep forgetting about it because it just sits at the bottom of my bag!

  • First of all, congrats on the followers flower! You totes deserve it, your blog is always so beautifully presented and offers something different to read every post. That sounds like I’m totally JUST SAYING THAT but yours is one of the prettiest blogs out there. Definite eye-candy πŸ˜‰ Aaaaanyway, before your head gets tooooo big, my fave out of these five is definitely Marc Jacobs Daisy, I live in that! And Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel too πŸ™‚ β™₯ Claire @ Jazzpad

  • Chanel Chance is a nice perfume I’m not so crazy about the viktor & rolf ones though.
    My personal faves are from Gucci the whole envy collection<3

    Seph xx

  • I looove the Chloe perfume, it smells so good! I’ve heard lots of good things about Flowerbomb, but I’ve never actually used it before. It sounds lush, will definitely have to check it out next time I’m at the perfume counter!

  • Meg

    I bought the regular Daisy from Marc Jacobs a week ago and I like it and was wondering how different is the Oh So Fresh. Raspberry and pear sound so yummy so I think I could add it to my repertoire too πŸ™‚

  • Caz

    Really want to smell some of the Viktor and Rolf perfumes after reading this!
    My current favourite perfumes are Boss Orange and Marc Jacobs Daisy but i’m lusting after Nina by Nina Ricci which smells amazing! xxx

  • i love flowerbomb and the original daisy. but whenever i wear flowerbomb i get flies attracted to me! it’s not a coincidence because it happens every time, very strange – must be because it’s so sweet. love it though! xx

  • I adore the Chloe and Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, they smell so lovely, it’s such a shame the Daisy doesn’t have great staying power because I love it!xxx

  • I love Chanel Chance! I’m tempted to go to Selfridges tomorrow and smell all the perfumes there!

  • Ooooh a nice selection – i too love Daisy, and i also like Flora by Gucci, Chanel Coco Madmoiselle, and Jil by Jil Sander πŸ™‚

  • I love Daisy. X

  • I see alot of people talking about flower bomb, really have to give it a wiff next time im in town and see if it lives up to the hype. On the hunt for the perfect summer perfume, shall have to try daisy aswell x

  • When Flowerbomb came out an overzealous lady in my local Fenwicks gave me a fan infused with the scent. It’s still hanging on my wall!

    I am a perfume junkie. Lately I’m loving Chanel 28 La Pausa and Guerlain Mitsouko. And I’d like a dabble with Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. Must have a spritz next time I’m in Boots!

  • i’m a chloe girl myself, use it everyday!

  • I have Chance and the original Daisy. I do want to get the summer edt of Daisy tho too πŸ™‚

  • I love Chance and Daisy, although Chance is my Mum’s favourite perfume and whenever I wear it I’m reminded that it’s “her” perfume. My all time favourite is Nina Ricci – the one in the red apple bottle! xx
