xmas 2017 | choosing fragrance

Firstly, I want to say I am so excited
that Halloween is now over, and we can all officially start our Christmas
countdown! Okay… maybe not a countdown, but still. I’M EXCITED!

Chloe Perfume Eau De Parfum Signature Fragrance

Year in, year out, I enjoy literally everything about the weeks
leading up Christmas, but I think my all-time favourite thing about the festive
season is all the time I get to spend with my family and friends, making plans
for the festive season and celebrating all together. It feels like we all find
just a little bit more time for each other, and the pinnacle of it all is
exchanging gifts with each other on the big day – it’s just so personal, and so
satisfying. Let’s face it though, gifts are nowhere near the be all and end all of
Christmas, but I get such a warm, fuzzy feeling when I know I’ve just handed my
loved one a gift they’ll love and seeing their face light up!

One of my fave gifts to give at
Christmas is definitely fragrance. Not only is it one of the most fuss-free
gifts to go for, there’s also literally a scent to suit everyone out there!
Fragrance tastes are so unique, and differ so much from person to person, so I
thought I’d share a few of my recent ‘for her’ faves to inspire you all! I
think I definitely have a type when it comes to fragrance!

Marc Jacobs Decadence Perfume Fragrance

Marc Jacobs – Decadence

I was kindly sent a new bottle of this
from Fragrance Direct, and fell in love with it all over again!

Everything about this fragrance screams
‘luxury’! From the decadent emerald bottle with the gold chain, to its beautifully
sexy woody notes. The fragrance is very rich and smooth, and smells super high
end. It always last so well on me, and I can’t go a day wearing it without
someone asking what scent I’m wearing.

Boss – The Scent

A recent discovery for me, this fragrance
by Boss is unlike anything I’ve ever worn! I would get so many compliments
whenever I wore this, so I had to add it to this round up! The bottle is so
beautiful, but the scent is even better!

It’s a sexy scent that I love to wear
when going out on special occasions or when Rich and I go out for a romantic
meal! It seems to last for soooo long, which is something I always look for in
a fragrance. It’s sophisticatedly fruity, with a deep warm sweetness. I
personally love it during the colder months too!

Chloe – Signature

This is another beauty that is ALWAYS
on my dressing table, so you can imagine my excitement when Fragrance Direct
sent me this one too! (I know, lucky lass!)

This one is a super-feminine scent, and
if I had to describe it in one word, it’d be ‘chic’! It’s definitely a more
floral fragrance, with a little bit of classic fruitiness!

Throughout the day, you definitely get
a few warmer notes in there too. Perfection!
