Perfume Collection

I love perfumes. I've been collecting perfumes for years and, although there are some I rarely use these days, I never throw them out. I'm terrible at describing what I like in a perfume but I guess you could say I like fruity and sweet scents. 

Anyway, I thought I'd go through the perfumes I own. They're all featured in the photo above but, obviously, you guys can't tell what they all are from that. As I said, I'm terrible at describing perfumes so I'm going to use the information provided on the official website for each. 
  • Curious by Britney Spears: An exhilarating white floral wrapped in the sensuality of vanilla-infused musk. (Not featured in the above photo as I rarely wear it)
  • Fantasy by Britney Spears: It opens with a fruity mix of red lychee, golden quince and exotic kiwi. Middle notes are jasmine and white chocolate. Base notes are orris root, musk and woods. 
  • With Love by Hilary Duff: This scent of optimism, confidence and authentic style opens with notes of spices and mango. The middle notes are cocobolo and mango blossom, and the base notes are amber and musk. 
  • Paris by Paris Hilton: Notes of frozen apple, peach nectar, freesia, mimosa and more define this sexy signature fragrance from Paris Hilton, with added pheremones for sensuality and allure. 
  • IN2U by Calvin Klein: Top notes introduce pink grapefruit, Sicilian grapefruit and blackcurrant leaf, middle notes are orchid and white cactus, and the base is amber, vanilla and cedar.
  • NYC by Sarah Jessica Parker: SJP is a deliciously addictive and sophisticated fruity floral fragrance built around a vivacious wild strawberry accord, lush gardenia and creamy, sensual undertones.  
  • Live by Jennifer Lopez: An upbeat fruity floral fragrance featuring pineapple, redcurrent, peony, caramel and vanilla. 
  • Intimately Beckham by Victoria Beckham: Sweet top notes of anise flower and candy apple that invite and entice. A floral heart of orchid and heliotrope warmed with soft vanilla. The scent settles on a sensual but sophisticated base of patchouli, amber and musk.
  • Cool Water by Davidoff: The essence of water in a sparkling ozonic note provides a fresh experience with the fruitiness of water melon, pineapple, and black currant. Feminine lily of the valley adds a flowery touch underlining the delicate energy in the heart.
  • Be Delicious by DKNY: A refreshing scent in an iconic apple-shaped bottle tempts you to take a bite out of life. A sophisticated blend of apples, exotic flowers and woods creates a fresh, juicy scent that can only be called delicious.
I also have mini bottles or samples of the following perfumes. I intend to buy most of them in full size eventually, however I'm low on funds. 
  • Still by Jennifer Lopez
  • Baby Doll by Yves Saint Laurent
  • Princess by Vera Wang
  • Red Delicious by DKNY 
  • Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
The perfume information was sourced from the following sites

  1. Another perfume fiend here! I've got the Britney Fantasy, Baby Doll & Cool Water also. Those 3 in themselves are a good mix! If I were to list mine it'd take up too much space LOL.

    1. Haha, I have more too but I just listed the main ones. Perfumes are the best! :P
      Where do you buy your BabyDoll, can I ask? I'm looking to buy a full sized bottle but it's so expensive!

    2. I got mine from Strawberry Net :)

    3. Oh & my recent faves (Top 6 only, lol) are: YSL Parisienne, Emporio Armani Diamonds, Gucci Flora, Vera Wang (the original one), Stella (again, the original) and Naughty Alice by Vivienne Westwood. Really keen for the new Thierry Mugler Alien, may have to drop hints to my other half for Valentine's Day :)

    4. Oh okay. Thanks heaps. I really want to buy Princess and Taylor Swift's Wonderstruck first. I have a list of perfumes in order of preference. :P
      Goodluck dropping hints! You'll have to let me know how it goes.

  2. I love Oh Lola!, and Taylor Swifts Wonderstruck smells AMAZING!! Definitely try to get it!

    1. I haven't smelt Oh Lola! but I hear it's nice. I need to smell it. I also LOVE Taylor Swift's Wonderstruck.
      I really want to buy that and Taylor Swift's Wonderstruck. I need more monies!

  3. I have loads of perfumes as I love them but have to be careful what I wear especially to work because no one wants a nurse looking after them that has marinated herself when you are feeling sick. My current favourite ones are lady million by paco robanne, beyond paradise by Estée Lauder, romance by Ralph Lauren and glo by j. Lo. Some older ones that are classics that I like are ysatis by givenchy, pleasures by Estée Lauder, Giorgio Beverly hills, tendre poison and dune by Christian Dior, and a really hard one to get but just lovely is creation by ted lapidus. I have different ones for summer and winter/night and day because I just don't think that some heavier fragrances are nice when it's 30 + degrees. I've got a great little book somewhere on the histories and fragrance types that I've had for a few years. If you're interested Sophie I'll see if I can find it for you. :)

    1. Hi Wendy, I know what you mean. I have certain perfumes that I like to wear at certain times, depending on what I'm doing. I also have some that I love for everyday. It's always so difficult to know what I want to wear!
      That book sounds pretty cool. I might have to borrow it sometime.

  4. nice collection! my absolute favourite would have to be daisy by marc jacobs
    i did a post on my perfume collection a while ago too: http://www.agentrouge.org/2011/09/spring-nails-perfume.html if you wanna check it out :)


    1. Hey, Jenny. I've heard that's really nice, yeah. I might have to add that to my list of perfumes I want to try. I need more money. There's so many I want to get, haha.
      Love your blog post! Thanks.

  5. wow you have a big collection of perfumes!!! my fav is baby doll.. it was my very first perfume!

    1. Hi! Yeah I love BabyDoll. It's just soooo pretty! My first perfume was Curious by Britney Spears. I'm not a huge fan of it now, although I still own it, but I loved it at the time!
