My favourites from the Perfume Society Subscriber Box.
I am Jo from Patent Purple Life www.patentpurplelife.com and I am a big fragrance fan. The Perfume Society Subscribe Box is a small but perfectly designed (just like Jamie) box of fine scent goodies. It contains samples of fragrances from the key fragrance families along with some information about the fragrance and a guide as to what to look for in the fragrance. It is a great introduction to the world of scent and I thankful to Jamie for sharing her corner of cyberspace with me – I am really happy to be sharing my top three all of you. Lets see if Jamie and I have picked the same ones!
Dali Wild – Salvador Dali
This fragrance is from the ‘Woody’ family but on first sniff you get a freshness with strong white flower element. The freshness is yuzu – a Japanese citrus fruit and the white flowers are tuberose and gardenia – two of my favourites. I have to say that I am surprised that this fragrance is classified as woody because it is very floral on my skin.
Lady Million – Paco Rabanne
This is an interesting one for me because with the initial spray, you get a very strong raspberry note, and I am not a huge fan of fruity fragrances and this fragrance is a floriental. As it dries down however, the neroli comes through and again the white flowers (jasmine and gardenia). The amber honey and patchouli base is a lovely change from more woody or musk fragrances and dries drown to a warm floral elements. For me it is an evening fragrance.
Chloe – Chloe
A floral and unashamedly so. If like me you are not a fan or roses but you want something pretty and feminine this is a great option. Freesia top and middle notes and more amber and honey in the base. Cedarwood gives it depth and helps with the longevity. Love it.
So I’m a floral girl!! Which fragrance family are you most drawn to?
