I just realized that I never spoke about my absolute favorite perfume here. I spoke a bit about it on Youtube but not here. Can't start slacking over here on my blog now can I?
Let me tell you about my preferences with scents, I like two scent..genres. I guess that's a good way to put it, I like light, clean scents and I also love anything with a Musk.
My favorite favorite perfume is by Jo Malone. It is Nectarine Blossom and Honey Cologne.
This is my favorite smell, it is fruity, clean and fresh without being saccharine sweet or cloying which alot of sweet smells can be. That right there is a recipe for a headache for me. This perfume is a bit pricey at $100 for a bottle.
From Jo Malone's website:
A youthful and fruity fragrance, Nectarine Blossom & Honey is inspired by the delicious scent of just-ripening nectarines and a taste of refreshing peach sorbet. Mouthwatering nectarine and peach with hints of plum, blackcurrant and vetiver are combined with the sweet warmth of acacia honey in this truly seductive
I recommend stopping by a free standing Jo Malone store to check out their fragrances. They are truly amazing and meant to be layered which is fun. The staff is very knowledgeable. Jo Malone is also carried at Saks in the US.
Also, I am testing out a new perfume that I am loving, it is uber expensive so I need about a week before I can review it. It is called Bal D'Afrique by Byredo. It is very exclusive and can only be found in BARNEYS. As soon as I smelled it I was obsessed but I didn't want to plunk down the cash yet. I will let you guys know, I have a sample! However, it is beyond amazing. I swooned as soon as I smelled this baby!
From the Byredo website:
A warm and romantic vetiver inspired by Paris in the late 20's and its infatuation with African culture, art, music and dance. A mix of the Parisian avantgardism and African culture shaped a unique and vibrant expression. The intense life, the excess and euphoria is illustrated by Bal d'Afrique's neroli, African marigold and Moroccan cedarwood.
