- TOM FORD ORCHID SOLEIL High end
Oh my Lord this packaging is DIVINE.
Don’t be fooled by the initial whiff of this perfume, the first time I smelt it I leapt back in horror with flashbacks of sleazy old men wearing Old Spice in Wetherspoons.
Give it a second chance and wait about half an hour to let it settle in, and this perfume becomes such a gorgeous deep, floral, womanly scent. TF himself describes it as “a radiant and sensual force of nature, the new scent captures the seductive warmth and reflective bare skin of the Tom Ford woman”, couldn’t have said it better myself Tom.
SCENT LONGEVITY: 4/5
SCENT INTENSITY: 5/5
SEASON: I like this for Winter as it has that Autumnal/Winter spiciness to it.

- JIMMY CHOO ILLICIT Middle market
This is a lovely bright feminine scent that I have been enjoying for over two years and always reminds me of summer (when my summers weren’t spent wasting away in an office.. lol). The scent is amazingly fresh with notes of ginger, rose, jasmine, and sandalwood. My only qualm with this fragrance is I like a perfume that lasts all day and with this one it does tend to disappear after a few hours which is a little frustrating but IMHO it’s worth it.

- NEW LOOK Blush Eau De Parfum Bargain Buy
Coming in the perfect purse size spritz bottle, this is a fragrance I love to have in my bag. This comes everywhere with me and is ideal to whip out on a night out, before a meeting at work or to take for a weekend away, mainly because I’m a liability with losing things and it wouldn’t be a fall-to-the-floor-screaming-NO moment if I lost it or it leaked. It’s super cheap, accessible for all and adds a fresh, sweet citrusy hit quickly. New Look have lots of different scents in this style so there’s plenty to choose from if this isn’t quite the right scent for you (one woman told me it reminded her of toilet cleaner… cheers hun).
