I thought I'd do a post about perfume, even though it's a terrible personal thing. I'm really nosey and love finding out what other people are wearing.
My favourite perfume when I was a teenager was Poison, by Dior.
Top notes: Coriander, pimento, plum, anise, mace, rosewood, carnation
Heart notes: Rose, tuberose, ylang-ylang, carnation, cinnamon, jasmine, lily of the valley
Base notes: Cedarwood, vetiver, sandalwood, musk, heliotrope, vanilla, opoponax.
Back in medieval times (!) when I was growing up, it seemed to be the fashion to drown ourselves in perfume. I used to reek of this stuff. I probably wore enough to stun a moose. I still have a bottle, as someone bought me some by accident a couple of years ago. It's far too heady for me to wear often.
What does it smell like in one word? FLOOZY!
My recent favourite perfume was Hypnotic Poison by Dior. As soon as I smelled this, it screamed 'me' and I wore it pretty much exclusively for over 10 years.
Top notes of bitter almond, caraway and jasmine
Heart notes of moss, sandalwood and oakmoss
Base notes vanilla, musk and cedar
What does it smell like in one word? SEDUCTIVE.
My current favourite scent is Smile by Stacey Solomon. I don't normally go in for celebrity perfumes at all, but when I saw this scent reviewed here I really liked the sound of it. Vetiver (sometimes vetyver or vetivert) is my favourite scent ingredient so I knew I'd like it.
Heart notes Vanilla Orchid, Rose, Jasmine, Plum
