Hi guys, I have been a bit “AFK” (gaming terminology) for a while, but its been for a good reason. I will do a post on it soon, I promise. Now I have been wanting to do this post for so long and the perfumes has been standing next to my bed for weeks. So, I am very glad that I am finally doing this post and that I can use them again. Let’s jump into my Top 5 Favorite High End Perfumes.
My Top 5 Favorite High End Perfumes
I am really not good at describing scents, they all just end up being described as fruity, floral and nice. So, I am going to try my best today as I have to run through 5 of my most favorite scents. These five scents are the “pick me ups” from my collection, they make me feel girly and pretty and confident.
Flowers by Kenzo
This is a very special perfume, my mom gifted me this bottle on my wedding day. There is only a tiny bit left and I am clinging onto it for as long as I can. This was her absolute favorite perfume and she only wore it on special occasions. When I smell this scent, I would describe it as deep, dark and seductive. The notes are also very different. The top notes include blackcurrant, Hawthorne, Bulgarian rose and Mandarin Orange. Hawthorne is a type of berrie blossom. Middle notes are Opoponax, jasmine, parma violet and rose. Opoponax is a type of crystal / stone, a type of myrrh. Then the base notes includes vanilla, white musk and incense. As you can see its bold and unique scents and when they are combined, they create this amazing perfume. I guess that scents really do connect us to memories and this is a very special memory.
Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet
I bought this little over 2 years ago as a “from me, to me” gift. It is a very fruity and slightly floral scent. This is as high as high end perfumes get, I coughed up a lot of moola for this perfume, but I do not regret it at all. I find this perfume to be soft yet full of confidence, its a thing of beauty and I absolutely love this perfume. The only top note is only Sicilian Mandarin, but the middle note is where it picks up a bit. It includes pink peonies, Damascus rose, apricot and peach. And the only base note is white musk. This is a very simple yet elegant scent. It’s girly and flirty and amazingness in a bottle.
Alien EAU Extraordinaire by Thierry Mugler
I use to think that I cannot wear these kind of perfumes, its a very deep and strong perfume. Then I received a sample of this perfume with one of my Red Square online purchases and I fell in love, HARD! It’s a very complex scent as the notes are very extensive. The top notes are very citrusy with bergamot, tea, Tunisian Neroli, lemon, lime and orange. Its amazing how at first I can smell all the citrus scents ???????? Then the middle notes are odd scents, some of which I have never even heard of. They are Tiare flower, heliotrope (type of flower), orange blossom, pepper and Ylang-Ylang. I know right! Then when this scent settles it include white amber, cashmere, sandalwood, vanilla and white musk. It settles into a very earthy scent and combined with the citrus and the slight floral scents it just totally feel grounded for me.
Miracle by Lancôme
One of my friend’s parents went over seas and they brought her back a whole box full of these mini perfumes bottles (the tiny 3 or 5 ml ones). She then gave this scent’s tiny bottle to me and I knew right away I had to get my hands on the full size. Its a sweet earthy scent that makes me think of a fairy queen. Its light, fresh and clean but has got a certain authority to it. The top notes are litchi and freesia (a type of flower), then the middle note include magnolia, ginger, mandarin orange, pepper and jasmine. The base notes are amber, musk and jasmine. Its a beautiful perfume and as you can see I have been loving it as its almost more then half way.
Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Cologne
I spent months testing, smelling considering different scents and when my birthday arrived last year I took hubby by the hand and showed him exactly which one he should buy for me. It is a year later and I have barely used it, only on special occasions. I find this perfume to be long wearing and quite intense, but its sooo good. I want to say its kind of a spicy floral scent. The top notes only consist of red apple and the middle note are peony, jasmine, carnation and rose. Very floral middle notes, and then to round if off the only base note is suede. I think it’s the suede that give this scent the deepness, but its a beautiful perfume that I treasure and it makes me feel so pretty.
