Perfume Collection...

Hey everyone :) Told you I would keep up with the blogging haha.

I admit I don't have a huge amount of perfume but judging by the way I have been addicted to trying on new perfumes in my local Boots my collection will probably be expanding pretty soon. 

First off is my all time favourite perfume, and one that I know without a doubt I am going to repurchase many more times. This is Lola by Marc Jacobs

This is a warm, fruity-florally perfume and its described as having ' fruity topnotes of delectable bright pink peppercorn, seductive pear d’anjou and succulent ruby red grapefruit. The heart 
contains fuschia peony with soft touches of rose and geranium, while the base has enveloping notes of smooth vanilla, tonka bean and creamy musk'. I got this last Christmas and this is the largest size and I have been using it at least every other day. 

Continuing with the theme of floral perfumes, the next one is In Bloom by Reese Witherspoon for Avon. although it looks full in the bottle, trust me its not. The amount of times that I used this over the summer has meant the bottle is only a little over half full.

 Its a very light floral smell. And is described as 'featuring peach, tea leaves and greenery in top notes. A heart includes magnolia, gardenia and jasmine, while base notes add cashmere, flowers and amber crystals.' 

Another perfume that I have been using a lot recently, especially over summer, is DKNY's Be Delicious Candy Apple and this one is in the flavour Sweet Caramel. 

This is a really sweet, fruity perfume and is by far the sweetest perfume out of all of them. It has notes of apples, pears, marshmallow, jasmine, lily of the valley, violet leaves, caramel and vanilla. Looking at the list of notes, you can really smell the caramel as soon as it is sprayed onto the skin and the fruity notes come out later. This was the sweetest out of all the Candy Apples I tried and therefore the one I had to buy.

The last perfume I have is English Velvet by Jack Wills and I got this for my birthday from my lovely friends.

It is quite similar to Lola in the way that it is a warm floral, slightly fruity smell. The fruity notes are pink grapefruit and mediteranean fig. Orange blossoms, rose petals and soft fresia make up the floral notes with undertones of creamy amber indian sandalwood and oriental musk.

But girls I am kind of stuck about what to ask for my Christmas present... I'm thinking either Viktor and Rolf's Flowerbomb, Dolce and Gabanna's Rose The One and the new Juicy Couture perfume, Love Peace and Juicy Couture. Any other florally perfume recommendations would be welcome :)
