My Top 5 - Perfumes

If anyone has ever asked me whether I have a top five perfumes, my go to answer is always “oh, there is no way I could only pick five”. But this has changed over the last year or so and I do feel that I can now quite easily pick out some of my all-time favourites from the many bottles that sit neatly on my dressing table (scattered untidily around my bedroom).

So without further ado, my top 5 perfumes (in no particular order) are:

1. Marc Jacobs - Daisy (£69.50)
Featuring top notes of wild strawberry, violet leaves and red grapefruit, this perfume is the height of sophistication. It has such a fresh scent and is perfect in the summer!
Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate the beautiful packaging! 

This is the perfume I tend to wear on a more everyday basis due to the fact it is way more purse friendly than the others on this list. 
This refreshing fragrance has a fresh floral note and is a captivating fragrance that refreshes and uplifts.

3. Diesel - Fuel For Life (£97)
You probably can't tell from the photo but my bottle is just about empty. I have the 30ml size bottle - I can't justify spending that amount of money on a single product. 

4. Clinique - Happy (£54)
We all know this is my top favourite (if you don't, where have you been?) and I would bathe in the stuff if I could afford it. 
I have never found a smell as great as this! It is a very light, fresh scent with citrus and floral undertones which lasts a long time on the skin. 

5. Chanel - Chance (£78.50)
Now this perfume is fairly different to the others on this list. All the others are really girly and feminine, but this one is the complete opposite! I would describe it as an slightly older scent.
It is still described as being a floral fragrance, however its not a typical floral. But the staying power is incredible!

  7. I couldn't agree more with your choices. I absolutely love Daisy - I think it was the first perfume I ever owned, so it'll always have a special place in my heart. I haven't tried many perfumes from Chanel but I've heard good things about their range, so I will definitely have to give their products a shot. Are there any others you would recommend? :) xx

    1. I love the DKNY perfumes! They are worth a look too :) x

      I'm a brand new beauty blogger, so I've only just set-up my blog, but it would mean the world to me if you could check it out and let me know what you think of it! I guess as a newbie I'd love to know what some more experienced bloggers think!
