Fragrances and Body Potions

Hey everybody! I know Christmas has come and gone, Valentine’s though is just around the corner, and what’s one of the most common presents? …Yes, that’s right, Perfumes and Fragrances!!!
On this post guys I’m gonna show you and talk about all the fragrances that I’ve got at the moment, my fave ones and so on!

I’m among the ones who believe that choosing your perfumes/fragrances/colognes is just like going shopping for clothes! You gotta get lured by them, try them on and then if you’re happy..make them yours.
I’m quite picky about what I choose and what I like, but I’m also very versatile and I like to change my fragrances every now and again as I get a bit bored of the same scent after a while.
Coco Chanel once said “a Woman that wears no perfume has no future”, even though I don’t see it in that extreme way, I’ve got to say that I partly agree by saying that a perfume is a sort of invisible finger print. It makes you think/remind of a person in certain occasions, and it can make you remarkable!
But enough of this, On the picture above you can see some of my favourite fragrances that I own now. I really like them all and somehow managed to catch my nose/attention πŸ˜‰
1) Jean Paul Gaultier – Fleur Du Male: I remember that I’ve been captured by it two years ago, when I went to my local perfume store and tried it on my skin, It was love at first sight and It has become one of my all time faves. Fleur Du Male built its success upon the very renowned “Le Male”.
The presence of orange blossom makes the fragrance delightfully refreshing and gives it the edge to kill it. It includes notes of lavander, orange blossom, coumarin.
3) Thierry Mugler – Angel: You might be wondering why I own a female perfume, I actually don’t know! No I’m just joking!
I’ve gotta admit that I’ve always been attracted by Angel as my mom is in love with it and made me fall in love with it too. I know it’s not everybody’s cup of tea, It’s a bit like marmite, you either love it or hate it!!!
I’m a big fan of powdery/sweet scents and I can say without doubt that Angel’s got it! I think it’s very suitable for Winter days and it’s one of the strongest fragrances I’ve ever smelt. It can linger in your skin and your clothes for DAYS!!!! But that’s why we love it! You can tell when Angel is around πŸ˜‰ (One spray is more than enough haha)
Angel notes do not contain any flower, just food such as chocolate, vanilla, caramel, berries and honey!
4) Dsquared2 – He Wood (Rocky Mountain Wood): I LOOOOOOOVE He Wood! If you like musky/woody manly fragrances, then this is the one for you!!! Rocky Mountain was launched in 2009 and it’s inspired by the Canadian moutains. You can obviously expect it to smell like a forest and wood! The fragrance contains musk, amber, incense which is meant to be the rocky part while the more flowery side is made of Canadian Lily, violet, cedar and white musk! Being so strong and masculine, He wood is the perfect fragrance for Winter.
So, I hope you liked the post and I’d really love to know your opinion and which are you fave fragrances! πŸ˜‰ till next time
  • Hi Mr Brightside! Thanks so much for your comment, I’m glad you liked the post on Iris van Herpen! πŸ˜‰
    May I suggest you another fragrance?
    You have to try Extreme by Tom Ford. Is one of the best masculine essence ever. In Italy it’s rare to find it, but when I was in Paris I stopped every shop to try it! πŸ˜‰

    I’m following you! Hope you’ll do the same!
