Favorite Perfumes

So as many of you know a Perfume is a mixture of fragrant essential oils and aroma compounds, fixatives, and solvents used to give the human body, animals, objects, and living spaces a pleasant scent. Everyone has their signature scent or the one that they use on a regular basis. Certain scents tend to trigger a past memory, for example what you wore throughout High School...honestly I haven't the slightest idea of what that was, but I can tell you that throughout college I wore a whole lot of Love Spell by Victoria Secret. So, I thought I would tell you all about my current favorite perfumes.

The Beat by Burberry - $55

Attitude meets energy in Burberry The Beat. This sparkling floral woody fragrance is at once sexy, feminine, modern, dynamic, and vibrant. The floral topnotes are reminiscent of a carpet of bluebells in a dense forest, mixed with the tradition and contradictions of Ceylon tea. Smoky and sensual tones of wood round out the scent of The Beat.

This perfume I bought during a shopping outting at TjMaxx during Christmas. TjMaxx always has designer perfumes cheaper then department stores, especially during a holiday season.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs - $57
Enter the world of Daisy: fresh and feminine, with a playful innocence. At the heart of Daisy is a floral with vintage edge: violet. Sophisticated, with a touch of whimsy, violet captures the eclectic, vintage flavor of Marc Jacobs' feminine, edgy designs. Always elegant, always enchanting - but not too serious - Daisy is a sparkling floral bouquet, spirited and fresh, wrapped in comfort and warmth.

I received this as a birthday gift, last year and I am on my 2nd bottle. I love this smell so much that I wear this almost everyday.

Very Hollywood by Michael Kors - $45

Make a glamorous escape with Michael Kors Very Hollywood. This fabulous essence features notes of sparkling mandarin, gardenia, and vetiver that are suited to a silver screen siren.
This particular scent was so freaking hard to find! My sister gave me a gift card for Sephora and I decided that I was going to use it to purchase this perfume. After going to like a bazillion (exaggerating) Sephora's I finally found it. I think this will be my signature scent for this summer.

I am still on the quest to add more perfumes to my current collection! ☺


  1. I've always been curious about Daisy by Marc Jacobs. Right now I use either Rumeur by Lanvin or Harajuku Lovers- Music by Gwen Stefanie.

    I agree with TJ Maxx being THE place to find designer perfumes for cheap.

  2. You might want to try on some colognes actually. I wear Acqua Di Gio. Yes, it's for men. Still smells amazing. I'm in this phase... I wear men's scents, sweaters and jackets. And no one can tell. I'll always stick to ladies' shoes though... ;)
