Fresh Fragrances I'm Loving Right Now!

Daisy, Chance eau Fraiche, Heat Rush, Chance, G, Elie Saab, Golden Delicious
These sexy scents, are a few of the fragrances I am really into right now. I am a big perfume person, I cannot get enough of the stuff, year-round, everyday, I pop on a fragrance. For me, wearing a perfume helps me feel fully dressed, without one I feel a bit naked and unfinished.

Daisy Eau de Toilette by Marc Jacobs

The first on my list, (in no particular order), is Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I have had this for a couple of years, and am on my second bottle, I just can't get enough of the crisp fruity yet floral scent. With notes of Violet, Jasmine, White Strawberry, Ruby Red Grapefuit, Vanilla and Musks, to name a few, you can see how zingy, yet seductive this perfume is. You can get it yourself from here :).

Chance by Chanel Eau Fraiche, Eau de Toilette and Chance by Chanel, Eau de Parfum
The  word 'Chanel' is almost synonymous itself with class, elegance and beauty. These perfumes do not stray from that association, at all. I got the Chance Eau Fraiche before I got the original, because it was Spring, and the fresh lemon blossom and citrus notes, that lighten the perfume, really got me in the spirit of things. But I loved it so much I bought the original Chance, and this time I went with the Parfum. Yes, the parfum is more expensive, but it lasts so long, and you barely need any to feel sensuously surrounded by the opulent Vanilla, Jasmine and White Musk notes. The Toilette is around £72 for 100ml and the parfum is £88, so they aren't cheap, but the seductive scents truly last and entice. If you feel like indulging in a slice of scent heaven, you can get them from here.

Elie Saab Eau de Parfum

The next, in my fantastic fragrance favourites of the moment, is Elie Saabs first and signature scent, Elie Saab. I also got this perfume in the parfum, because it is a rich and longer lasting smell. With fruity notes, such as Orange Blossom combined with spicy Jasmine and Patchouli and sensuous Honey Rose and Cedar, you know its a perfume that will grab you by the hand and take you to a paradise of indulgent fragrance.

 If you want to treat yourself, this bottle of whimsical wonder, can be bought from here.

DKNY Golden Delicious Eau de Toilette
This adaptation of DKNY's Be Delicious scent, is gorgeous. It smells warm, fresh, tropical and mysterious. Apparently men find the smell of apple really attractive, and I always got compliments when wearing the original, and this is just as juicy. With notes of Apple, Orange Blossom and Plum giving an initial fruit-tastic punch, the softer notes of Lily of the Valley and Vanilla contrast deliciously, only added to by the heavier, sexy tones of Musk, Sandalwood and Teek. You can grab a bottle yourself from here. Watch out boys, delicious by name...

Calvin Klein - Euphoria Eau de Toilette
I know this bottle looks like it's been used to mine for precious stones, but that can only be a good thing. A sign of love and adoration if you will. Calvin Klein's Euphoria, to me, is such a powerful smell. It reminds me of going out. It's so thick with seduction and sass, I tend to wear it at night, and it just oozes confidence and mystery. 

It has some fruity notes; such as Pomegranate, some floral; like Lotus Blossom and Black Orchid and some sensual, like Amber, Cream and Woods. These blend together incredibly, to play a harmony on your skin. Get a bottle yourself, from here..

Its like a hot ticket to feeling amazing, all in a shiny silver case. Love.

To finish, I have a couple of celebrity fragrances, which you may think have the potential to stink (sorry), but are surprisingly gorgeous.

Beyonce - Heat Rush and Gwen Stefani - G

Beyonce is a firecracker. Let's not lie, she is hot stuff coming right at ya. So, when she released an adaptation of her fragrance Heat, I had to smell it. I was absolutely bowled over, this perfume is so tropical and so fruity, it's literally the scent of summer fun. With powerful notes of Passion Fruit Sorbet, Blood Orange, Yellow Tiger Orchid, Mango Blossom and Honey Amber, you can see why this is a cocktail for the senses. Well done B, you've done it again. Heat Rush can be bought from loads of pharmacies (drugstores if you're of an American root), and it really quite cheap at around £25ish for 50ml!

The last is a personal fave, simply because it has coconut in. When The Body Shop discontinued their Coconut perfume oil, I was livid. That was my favourite smell of all time, and it was so cute in its small glass bottle, perfect for handbags and night outs. I decided to see which perfumes had the most coconut in... to try and heal the wound, and many people suggested I tired 'G' by Gwen Stefani. It contains Coconut alright, and Coconut Cream. But that's not all, these are expertly infused with Jasmine, Manderin, Apple Skin and Sandalwood amongst others, to create the big daddy of summer smells. Oh yum and yes please. This is a steal too at £15 for a mini bottle, perfectly small and ridiculously cute!

So, there are a few of my fragrance fancies at the moment, but I really am a perfume addict, so let me know if you have any favourites you want to share, or think I would love!

Love and Scented Kisses, Lauren xx
