Sometimes, it’s nice to have a different aroma on you. Here are some scents I’m presenting to you today. 🙂
What I wear
Chanel‘s Coco Mademoiselle
This is what most girls in their 20’s seem to be wearing. Just about every girl I know has this perfume!
Another favourite perfume brand of mine is Escada. Just about everything they come up with is fruity and divine! If you like the smell of something sweet, Escada is for you. 🙂
Update (6 Jan 2013): Lately, I’ve also decided to go for something more natural so I’ve picked out L’Occitane’s ‘Rose 4 Reines’ eau de toilette and ‘Fleurs Merveilleuses’ roll-on eau de toilette intense (limited edition).
My BFF has another delicious scent called Be Delicious by DKNY. It smells like apples! They’ve recently come up with new scents based on cities: NYC, London, Paris, and Rio. I quite like the smell of London and Paris though Be Delicious wins!
What Kate / the Duchess of Cambridge wears (or wore to her Royal Wedding):
Illuminum’s White Gardenia Petals
According to this site, this is supposedly the perfume that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wore to the Royal Wedding.
“As fragrant as a vase of white flowers, quivering in the breeze by an open window, this is a delicate and refined perfume.”
Top note: Lily
Heart notes: White Gardenia, Muguet, Jasmine
