I love perfume tag

February 10, 2013 • Beauty10 Comments

First off, for those of you who celebrate the Lunar New Year: Happy Year of the Snake! :D Ok, so I’ve been pretty bad with my blogging more consistently New Year’s resolution, but I’ve been stuck lately on what to write. Thankfully I saw an “I love perfume” tag at sleepandwater‘s blog, and as a fan of perfumes, I can’t believe I hadn’t written about this topic before!  

my current perfume collection

my current perfume collection -

1. What was your first perfume you ever purchased?

That would be Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Girl back in 5th grade. I remember that perfume was the it perfume back then, and of course the 11-year old me had to have it too.

2. What’s your signature perfume?

Chanel Chance Eau Tendre and Burberry Brit Sheer

Chanel Chance Eau Tendre and Burberry Brit Sheer

I wear Chanel Chance Eau Tendre and Burberry Brit Sheer equally as much, but if I had to pick one, it’d be Chanel Chance. I absolutely love the way it smells – very soft and feminine, and I like how it’s not one of those perfume everyone has, which makes it a bit more unique :)

3. What’s your most recent perfume purchase?

Victoria's Secret Bombshell,  Forever 21 Love & Beauty

Victoria’s Secret Bombshell, Forever 21 Love & Beauty

The last perfume I actually bought was Forever 21 Love & Beauty [1. I remember it was sold out in the first Forever 21 that I went to, so I had to try another mall just to buy it.]. Apparently it’s a dupe for the Victoria’s Secret Pink, but I’ve never tried the latter so I can’t say. Either way it smells and looks lovely, and it’s very affordable! Victoria’s Secret Bombshell is the most recent addition to my collection, and was a Christmas gift from my fiance’s aunt :)

4. What perfume would you wear at nighttime/date night?

Sdsa

Victoria’s Secret Bombshell, Vera Wang Princess, Niki Taylor Begin

You really can’t go wrong with Victoria’s Secret’s perfumes when it comes to date night, and Niki Taylor Begin is a surprisingly lovely scent, considering I have no idea where this perfume came from[1. Seriously. I found it when I moved last year. It just appeared, no joke.]!

5. What’s your favorite spring/summer perfume?

Burberry Brit Sheer, Yves Rocher Flower Power, DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossoms

Burberry Brit Sheer, Yves Rocher Flower Party, DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom

Burberry Brit Sheer is a favorite in the springtime, and when it gets warmer I switch to DKNY Be Delicious Fresh BlossomYves Rocher Flower Party is there for those days that I want a little more oomph to my scents, without it being an overkill.

6. What’s your favorite fall/winter perfume?

To me fall/winter perfumes are interchangeable with nighttime/date night perfumes. Vera Wang Princess pretty much is my go-to perfume when it gets cold, with a bit of Niki Taylor Begin every now and then.

7. What’s your favorite scent category (fruity, floral, fresh, oriental, woody)?

Fruity and floral. I also tend to favor fresher scents over muskier ones.

8. What perfume are you currently lusting after?

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue and Dior Miss Dior. And any of the Escada limited edition scents :3

9. What fragrance/cologne do you like on your significant other?

To me all men scents, whether it’s cologne or deodorant, smell the same: sexy. But I do like what my fiance wears[2. But then I also like the scent of his deodorant, so what do I know, lol]: Burberry Touch and Ralph Lauren Polo Blue.

Hope you all enjoyed this post, and I’d love to see you guys do this tag on your blog :D It’s always fun to read what perfumes other people like.

    I love how pretty perfume bottles always are :3 It looks like you’ve tried a lot of perfumes! I’ll have to look at your list for recommends the next time I buy any. I typically don’t wear perfume. My nose is sensitive, so sometimes it makes me sneeze. I agree with you on men’s scents though. I really do think they all smell the same!

  2. Liv says:

    Those perfume bottles are damn pretty! I wish I had some, but I’m the same as Cat – my nose is too sensitive to perfume. I can’t even read a magazine that contains a sample.

    Happy new year!

  3. Misaki Li says:

    I work in a pharmacy that sells perfumes and ever since Christmas, with all the mass crowds trying to purchase perfumes, I’ve been off them.

    Though the ones that I use are: Ralph Blue by Ralph Lauren, Bright Crystal by Versace and Daisy by Marc Jacobs :)

    I love how pretty the bottles are!

  4. Tina says:

    So envious of how many perfumes you’ve gone through and experienced. I was a late bloomer and did not enjoy the scent of perfume before the last year of high school. So childish, I only liked Lolita Lempicka =______=

    Oooh, but I (now) love Burberry’s Brit Sheer, I use it all the time for parties and special occasion.

  5. I love floral and fruity scents too! DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom is lovely for spring/summer :) I also really like Tommy Girl – it was really well reviewed in Perfumes: The Guide by Luca Turin & Tania Sanchez :p

  6. Bonnie L says:

    Such pretty perfumes! I always wanted to try the Vera Wang one, a lot of people like it :) Chanel one is so good too, only had a small sample of it though! I love the pretty bottles gahhh!

  7. Amanda says:

    You make me almost want to get into perfumes and stuff! I’ve never been a fan of perfumes since I figured I would never use it and strong smells usually give me headaches, but the bottles are so cute (especially the Vera Wang one).

  8. Melissa says:

    You have so many perfumes! I only have one since I can’t stand to many scents :( Especially the strong ones are the ones who give me a huge headache.

    Though this posts does wants to try out some new “light” perfumes. xD Which one do you recommend for me? :)

    1. I think both Burberry Brit Sheer and DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossoms are really light, and would be a good fit for you :) I might recommend the DKNY more, but you should visit the perfume counter at your local department store (or Sephora/ULTA) and smell them for yourself. You might find another perfume you like more!

    You have a great collection! I am so picky about my perfume. I used Lucky #6 for years and it was discontinued a few years ago ;o; I have been searching for another scent similar to it. Light floral scent – the search is still going although I use white linen now.
