Princess by Vera Wang
" Created for the playful, unpredictable, independent woman who treats everyday like an event and adventure."

Vanilla by The Body Shop
"A sweet, warm and velvety vanilla fragrance."

As you can see, the one stable note that is in all of my favourites is vanilla! Thats basically the basis of each new perfume I buy :)

"Eh" Perfumes

Fantasty by Britney Spears
I purchased this when I went to Melbourne last November. I do like it, but only as a "Its cheap, so Ima use it till it's gone" I don't avoid it, but I don't "enjoy" wearing it like I do with my Favourite perfumes!

Hidden Fantasy by Britney SPears
I was obsessed with this stuff for months before I purchased it! I bought this like a month ago, and was way excited. I wore it for a day and got sick of it. Its too strong, or too something.. Im not sure.. Anyways, I don't love it. But its okay. Its cute to shove in my bag cos it's so little :)

Showtime by Kylie Minogue
Ahhh my good. I wore this every day for almost a year. This was once my HG perfume! Its smells like candy :) But with a bit of spice to it or something? This is my second bottle, I purchased the first one in 2008. I do like this, and will re-purchase cos it's cheapish and the bottle is really pretty. Its a tad embarrassing wearing a Kylie Minogue perfume lol but I love what *sh*e comes up with! (Her *brand* comes up with) I love her doonas!! and cushions!!

My Least Favourites

Dolce and Gabbana is too strong, and it makes me feel like Im trying way to hard to be sexy and mature... And Anna Sui makes me feel like Im 10 and like I chose things based purely on the way they look.

Have You Worn Any Of These Perfumes? Opinions?
What's Your Favourite Perfume? and Your Least?

I have Daisy, Princess & a Britney one too (check out my perfume collection on my blog) :)

You have such a nice purfume collection. Before i begin, how's your nose. Is it healing okay, hope you well.

I love britney purfumes but i agree about them being "eh" sort of scents. They're cheap and nice but not anything HG worthy. I do have all of the purfumes she has ever come out with and the worst is "Believe" it smells like an old woman scent. It was when she was trying to get her life back on track lol i guess she wanted to seem sophisticated and grown up....her brand anywayz.

Juicy and Vera Wang are GORGEOUS. D&G tends to be a little...oldies.

Love your collection :)

Krissy said...

Ooh your perfume collection is very similar to mine!
I too LOVE viva la juicy. Its my absolute favourite perfume and I'll never get sick of it. I also have Anna Sui Secret Wish (but the pink version) and I like the fairy on the bottle but it kinda smells like...sweet fly spray LOL.
On a side note, I looove D&G The One because it lasts so long on me whenever I spray it in shops!
If you ever wanna get rid of it or swap it, lemme know :P

Princess by Vera smells so delish!
My favorite is actually CK1. I also love the new YSL scent!

This is a bit embarrassing, but I purchased the Midnight Fantasy one only because it smelled like a my-little-pony toy I has when I was younger. haha. I want to get all of Britney Spear's perfumes just for the bottles.. but that would be a waste of money. :/

I'm not much of a perfume person.. I recently purchased D'armani Idole and love it. I rotate between that and Victoria's Secret 'Body by Victoria' perfume.
One of the ladies at the department stores I went to on black friday gave me a card with what I think was a D&G scent on it, and I've been searching like mad to find it.. I'll have to take a trip to the store to smell 'The One'!
Hope you're having a great week. :)

TBS Vanilla is classic and timeless in my opinion..! ;)
From the rest, I 've tried "The One", which I personally liked and want to purchase, and "Fantasy" which almost gave me a headache, as it's mega sweet on my skin...
But perfume is so subjective anyways! ;)
