Today we are looking at my favourite perfume picks for Christmas 2011 :)
I would describe Katy Perry Purr as a fresh citrusy floral, but the notes according to fragrantica are "top notes of peach, forbidden apple, gardenia and green bamboo with the heart of jasmine, pink freesia and Bulgarian rose and the base of vanilla orchid, creamy sandalwood, white amber, coconut and musk."
Who is this fragrance for ? Your younger sister, teenagers- early twenties.
CK One Shock For Her is described as opulent oriental - floral fragrance with top notes of passion flower, pink peony and poppy. Its heart is made of feminine jasmine, narcissus, blackberry and dark cocoa. The base consists of amber, vanilla, musk and patchouli. This is me in a fragrance, I love strong fragrances, I feel as though they last longer.
Who is this fragrance for ? Early twenties. Your sisters, your best friend
Coco Mademoiselle is described with notes of orange, bergamot, grapefruit, litchi, rose, italian jasmine, indonesian patchouli, haitian vetiver, bourbon vanilla, white musk In my opinion, the most beautiful perfume to have ever been invented ! It has quite a price tag attached to it, but definitely a classic that any female will enjoy, if you don’t own it personally, add it to your wish list for Christmas !
Who is this fragrance for ? Older sisters, your mummy, anyone who loves a classic scent and is worth the huge price tag.
Jimmy Choo fragrance, described as “feminine yet empowering, with a lot of sensuality to it" according to fragrantica. The seductive composition is a modern chypre fruity, with green top notes, tiger orchid, sweet toffee caramel and Indonesian patchouli. I describe it as one of the sexiest perfumes ive smelt. Its something id reach for when going on a hot date, drinks with the girls, or just any summer night- love this one !
Who is this fragrance for ? Early twenties, that girl who beams with confidence.
Fragrantica describes that Flora by Gucci opens the door to new creations by the house of Gucci, which are being planned for younger audience. Top notes introduce citruses and peony, a heart is enriched with rose and osmanthus (Chinese flower which enchants with fruity-floral aromas with leather notes), while base notes encompass patchouli and sandalwood. This perfume screams summer to me and its one of those where you can bask in its ambience all evening- its constantly lingering under your nose so you know you smell good !
Who is this fragrance for ? Your best friend or sisters.
Lady Million is fresh, floral and woody, like a nectar of voluptuous flowers, trailing delicately but still very present. Powerfully seductive, the sparkle of bitter orange with a touch of raspberry reveals the first breath. A burst of neroli follows, smooth and bright. But then the lethal weapon of heady orange blossom slips out of its sheath. Its narcotic sweetness bewitches and grabs all attention. Then, joining with Arabian jasmine underlined by gardenia, the blend soars into something more carnal, yet ever subtle. Now the obsessive pulsing of patchouli enters the fray, pacifying the honey with an addictive and terribly tempting sweetness. Amber spreads to become all enveloping, floating around the beauty, following each movement and offering its most beautiful facets, according to Anne Flipo who designed the to-die-for scent.
Who is this fragrance for ? Anywhere from your best friend and your mum
