Fall / Winter perfumes15:36
It's finally time for me to smell like a cupcake again. :)) I love sweet musky perfumes and I tend to wear my strongest in the fall and winter time. I am one of those that loves really sweet perfumes, maybe it's because I eat too much sweets, so I think I should smell like one?! A good perfume can last you a very long time and can make you feel extra special. Plus the bottles are beautiful room accessories on its own. Here are my current picks, that I tend to abuse through the colder months.
I have three perfumes of Britney Spears Fantasy line and they are all the same, except for the color. The bottles are round and to me they look very Aladin inspired. They look like a genie bottles and have little rhinestones all over them. Fantasy is pink with light green rhinestones, Hidden Fantasy is red with light pink rhinestones and Midnight Fantasy is dark blue with white or clear rhinestones. And I have to mention square boxes that they come in. Such a beautiful design and would be a piece of art on its own.
Britney Spears -Fantasy (50 ml)
Top notes: Quince, Red Litchi, Kiwi.
Middle notes: Cupcake, Orchid, Jasmine, White Chocolate.
Base notes: Woodsy Notes, Orris Root, Musk.
This is a very heavy sweet smell. Whenever I wear it, I think of chocolate. It does actually contains white chocolate. It's one of those sweet musky smells, great for winter cozy days.
Britney Spears - Hidden Fantasy (50 ml)
Top notes: Neroli, Lemon Verbena, Tangerine, Orange.
Middle notes: Jasmine, Lily, Sweet Notes, Clove.
Base notes: Amber, Sandalwood, Woodsy Notes, Vanilla.
It's very sweet perfume, but it has a definite citrus note to it. It's her citrus sweet perfume, because most of her perfumes I just find very sweet. It's a pretty heavy smell, but the citruses help it to be very wearable and still a bit fresh.
Britney Spears - Midnight Fantasy (100 ml)
Top notes: Sour Cherry, Plum.
Middle notes: Freesia, Orchid, Iris.
Base notes: Vanilla, Musk, Amber.
This is again, no surprise, very sweet fragrance. I feel this is one of those nice sweet smells, that isn't too musky or woody. It is that classic vanilla sweet, but definitely has a little punch of freshness to it.
Christina Aguilera - By Night (15 ml)
Top notes: Tangerine, Freesia, Rhubarb, Red Apple, Pineapple.
Middle notes: May Blossom, Peach-tree Flower, Heliotrope.
Base notes: Sandalwood, Amber, Moss, Vanilla.
For me, this is one of those classical vanilla sweet scents. It's not one of the most heavy smells and it's not one of the most special ones. It's a great everyday classic perfume.
The bottle is sort of abstract woman body shape. It has little flowers on it and little flower around the top, which can actually be worn as a ring, if you want. Top of the bottle has diamond inspired shape.
Beyonce - Heat (15 ml)
Top notes: Red Vanilla Orchid, Magnolia, Neroli, Peach.
Middle notes: Almond Macaroon, Honeysuckle Nectar, Musk.
Base notes: Sequoia Milkwood, Tonka Bean, Amber.
This is a really heavy fragrance. At the beginning it smells very woody and very heavy, but then it turns into an extremely sweet musky smell, that will get you noticed anywhere. It's for those people who like it heavy and to me is one of those sexy smells.
The bottle is extremely beautiful. The top of the bottle looks like a gem and I love the color palette of red and gold - has to be one of my favorite combinations.
Beyonce - Midnight Heat (30 ml)
Top notes: Dragonfruit, Starfruit, Armenian Plum.
Middle notes: Purple Mokara Orchid, Queen of the Night Black Tulip, Purple Peony.
Base notes: Warm Amber, Patchouli, Sandalwood.
Not one of my usual tastes, because it smells very fruity and it has some sort of a woody note to it. I can't explain that smell very well, because it's one of those I am not used to. It's pretty strong.
The bottle is the same as the Heat, with the exception of color palette. It's clear or white and violet combination. Very pretty.
Lancome - Hypnose (30 ml)
Top notes: Passion Flower.
Middle notes: Gardenia, Jasmine.
Base notes: Vanilla, Vetiver.
This is a very classic vanilla sweet scent, but it's not as strong sweet as all the others mentioned above. It has that timeless quality to it and it's perfect for those who like it sweet, but not strong. It's great for everyday use.
The bottle is very interesting. I remember analyzing it when I got it home, which was a long time ago. It's as if you took a cube and twist it up. Not typical bottle, which is always nice.
Little fact about my perfume obsession. I actually keep all of my empty perfume bottles and even store them back into the box they came with. I can't throw away such beautifully crafted objects :). I hope to once have a place to display them all. Oh, and I always leave a very little amount of fragrance still in the bottle, so that when I want to go back and smell it, I can :).
