My Perfume Collection

I've always loved perfume but never usually had more than two on the go at once. Lately, however, I have amassed quite a collection - be it from gifts, vouchers or sales. So I thought I'd share with you all my collection :)

Here it is: 

Look at all those pretty bottles!
CK One

Top Notes: Bergamot, cardamom and freesia.
Heart Notes: Violet, rose and green tea.
Base Notes: Musk, amber and oakmass.

CK One

This is my signature scent, one I always come back too and holds special memories as it was the perfume I was wearing during the time Blake and I started dating. I've gone through multiple bottles of this and will always have it on my dressing table.

CK One Summer

Top Notes: Blue mint, cucumber, lime, bergamot.
Heart Notes: Watery accord, green apple, rosemary, water lotus.
Base Notes: Rum cocktail, sandalwood, driftwood, sea mass.

CK One Summer

This is one of my newer scents, it's this years CK Summer release. They release a new one of these every year and I always love the scents they come out with. This one is no different. The combination of lime, cucumber and mint is super refreshing and smells just like summer.

Burberry Brit

Top Notes: Green almond, pear and italian lime.
Heart Notes: Sugared almonds and white peony.
Base Notes: Amber and mahogany.

Burberry Brit

This is quite a heavy scent but I still find it appropriate for during the day. To me this has quite a vanilla smell even though there is no vanilla notes. This is the scent which lasts the longest thorough out the day on me. It's also one of Blake's favourites.

CK Forbidden Euphoria

Top Notes: Mandarin, passionfruit, iced raspberries.
Heart Notes: Tiger orchard and jasmine.
Base Notes: Patchouli, musk and cashmere woods.

CK Forbidden Euphoria

This is probably the strongest and sweetest perfume I own. I got a sample in a subscription box one month and fell in love with it. Kindly my mum & step-dad got this for me duty free on one of their travels. You can definitely smell the tartness of the passionfruit and the raspberries and mixed with the musk it smells divine.I usually only wear this at night time as I find it a bit too strong for the day. I think this is a scent people would either love or hate, personally I love it but some might find it too sweet.

Beckham Signature

Top Notes: Anise flower and candy apple.
Heart Notes: Orchid, heliotrope and vanilla.
Base Notes: Patchouli, amber and musk.

Beckham Signature

This was a recent purchase for me. I had a voucher from Priceline and thought I'd use it to buy a new perfume. A while ago I bought Blake the men's version of this, which we love so I thought I'd give this one a sniff and I really liked the scent. It's a mixture of musk and florals but is still quite light so its perfect for daytime. 

Gucci Guilty

Top Notes: Pink Pepper
Heart Notes: Lilac
Base Notes: Patchouli and amber.

Gucci Guilty

This has to be my favourite scent of them all and the one I receive the most compliments for when I wear it. The only way I can think to describe this is pure sex appeal. For that reason it is my go to perfume for a night out or a date night. You must go smell this if  haven't already. I just bought another bottle of this as I was down to my last drop.

DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom

Top Notes: Grapefruit, cassis and apricot.
Heart Notes: Muguet, rose and jasmine.
Base Notes: Blonde woods and smooth skin accords. (whatever they mean!)

DKNY Be Delicious

This is quite a light floral smelling fragrance and one I often wear to work as I find it quite fresh and not in your face. There is nothing worse than working with someone with an overbearing fragrance and I don't fancy being that person haha. It smells exactly like the notes would predict, there is a strong rose aspect to it but the grapefruit cuts through the smell nicely to modernise the scent. 

DKNY Gift Set

My lovely step-dad Kim bought this for me on his way home from an overseas work trip. It was a such a nice surprise as I love all of these scents! As much as I love these types of sampler sets I hate that they don't have a spray top. I had seen reviews of atomiser spray bottles on YouTube so decided to invest in some, although I wouldn't really call it investing as they were super cheap! I plan on decanting these into them so I can take them on the go with me. 

Baby perfumes!!

How cute are the mini Be Delicious apple bottles! I love all these scents. I highly recommend this for a present as I think the majority of ladies would like each of the scents as they are all quite light clean fresh smelling scents.

What are some of your favourite perfumes?? I would love to know!
