My perfume collection



Yes these two perfumes make up my "collection". Quite pathetic isn't it? Truth be told I am not a big perfume wearer and I fall out of favour with scents very quickly. There comes a point where I can't stand to smell my own perfume on myself but these are the only ones which have survived my many purges.

Miracle by LancĂ´me (Top Notes: Freesia, Lychee Heart notes: Magnolia Base notes: Jasmine, Amber)

I don't think this is a very well known perfume? I discovered this via a sample when I was 19 and it is the only one I will buy over and over again because it holds so many good memories (it's funny how scent can be a trigger). There are a few other versions out there but this is the best. I consider this to be my signature scent but it only really comes out on special occasions as I'm scared I'll get sick of it.

Alien by Thierry Mugler (Top Notes: Mandarin Essence Heart Notes: Moroccan Jasmine Base Notes: White Amber, Cashmeran Wood)

A Christmas gift from my colleagues and something I don't think I would have picked out myself but I love it. It's very much a winter scent and I feel so grown up and glamorous wearing this. I like to spritz this on my coat and it lasts for ages but on bare skin it fades nicely to something subtle.

My past collection has included D&G Light Blue, Hugo Boss Femme, CK Be, Paul Smith Flower, Paco Rabanne Black XS, Moschino Cheap & Chic, Moschino I Love Love and Lolita Lempicka. All of which have been passed onto my mum and sister. I find it hard choosing new perfumes as I'm always changing my mind but the two I really like at the moment are Stella McCartney's L.I.L.Y and Love Chloe. I also love Chanel (Chance is my favourite) but so do a lot of people! I can't be the only one who doesn't like smelling like everyone else? I remember my first year of college when Kenzo Flower came out and even though I really liked it I didn't buy it because every girl wore it. I think the current popular scent is Lady Million? Another really nice one.

So what's in your current collection? And what is your signature scent?

  1. I love that you only have two perfumes in your collection! I'm such a hoarder but truth be told I only have 3-4 favourites that I always use x

    1. I'm terrible when it comes to wearing perfume, I get told off by the Mr for smelling like nothing. I only really wear it on social occasions so no point in having loads :) xx

    1. I've never smelled a Jo Malone perfume before to be honest. Are they only available on department stores? xx

  3. I have to agree with you! MIRACLE is definitely a scent that triggers memories! Perfume buddies?. It's pricey but SO worth it.

    1. Oh no another Miracle wearer ;) it's not expensive here in the UK, around £30 for 50ml which is quite reasonable compared to most others xx

  4. I don't think it's pathetic that there are only two perfumes in your collection as I have way too many - still not that much - and I'm sure I won't be able to use them all up before they expire...

    That "alien" bottle looks awesome!

    1. Do perfumes really "go off"? My mum has perfumes that are about 15yrs old! xx

  5. I have a quite small collection of scents which have been gifted or more rather 'passed off on me' by my family - nothing expensive though. My most used fragrance to date has been Cabotine Gres - it reminds me of the outdoors and unlike some of my other perfumes its not too strong on me. With that said I am hoping to go perfume shopping after I finish my small stash - so fragrance spritzing has become an everyday thing:D!!

  6. I really love Alien tho I generally tend to get Vanilla type of scents. To be honest, my perfume collection is also quite small compared to some others. I generally have about 2-4.

    Btw, love your blog. Would you like to follow each other? <3

  7. I don't know if you have Banana republic in England but I am a huge fan of Modern. When I was little my mom gave me the modern perfume becuase she wears their classic perfume. Also anthropologie has the best perfumes
