Love fragrance? Me too! In fact…I’m a bit obsessed! I collect fragrances throughout the year & went through & picked my 5 main favorites of 2013. It was tough! Really! I decided to look at the fragrances I used most seasonally & then the top overall! Keep reading to find out more & to watch my video!
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Sunshine- Unfortunately…this was a limited edition fragrance for spring 2013. I know, I’m so sorry! But I would have been lying to not include it! Marc Jacobs scents seem to really resonate well with my body chemistry & when hubby & I smelled this I quickly received it as a gift! The notes that lure me in are so bright & fresh with floral juicy waves. With notes like strawberry, apple blossom, & grapefruit on top it then fades into jasmine petals, lily, & a touch of rose. The base consists of violet leaf, white oak, moss, & amber woods.
Laura Mercier Almond Coconut– Summer was an easy pick, this fragrance from Laura Mercier is the perfect complement to pretty much any summer fragrance! Sometimes I would use it to start out my day with the warm, clean scent & other times to amp up a faded summer fragrance before going out. This is warm with a touch of sugar along with the vanilla with notes of vanilla mousse & meringue. The coconut is what drew me in for the summer.
DKNY Golden Delicious– One of my favorite DKNY scent period this “Golden” version is deeper with light florals & a sensual warm scent. This is warm while still being radiant. With Golden Delicious Apple being on top you also have orange flower water, white rose, vanilla orchid, & a number of scrumptiously warm & comforting woods. A no brainer!
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb– Although I picked this for winter because I got it more recently than the Dior this is definitely a contender! Flowerbomb is one of the few oriental based fragrance I like…& actually I absolutely love it! So sensual, so sexy, & so feminine! My body chemistry naturally pulls jasmine & this one smells divine on me! Notes of sambac jasmine, Centifolia rose, Cattleya orchid, Ballerina freesia, & patchouli it is sophisticated enough for day & bold enough for night.
Dior Miss Dior Eau de Parfum– Meet my main favorite for 2013! I went through multiple vials & sprays of this before finally taking the leap! I’m surprised the Sephora ladies weren’t rolling their eyes when I requested it nearly every visit! This is also the first fragrance as an adult that I thought could be a signature fragrance. I bounce around scents constantly but this one hit me in the heart. So elegant, so sophisticated, & just beautiful. Oddly enough, I don’t like it upon first spray or sniff! But when it mixes with my body chemistry it is amazing! You honestly wouldn’t recognize it after 10 minutes & another sniff! With notes of mandarin, Egyptian jasmine, & patchouli it is a match made in fragrance heaven!
