My perfume collection..

I guess I have quite a few perfumes, but theres only perhaps one that I would repurchase!  Some I keep to remind me of nice moments or people, some of which I just need to use up and bin!

 I think that over the years my likes in perfumes have changed and there arent all that many that I really must have.  I tend to get bored easily too, so its worthwhile that I only buy 30ml bottles from now on!

I used to only wear perfume when I was going somewhere special too, and I found myself 'saving it for best'!  Which is probably why I have so many, any normal person would have used them up considering how long they've been sat there!  But Ive began wearing them more and more recently, if only to get rid of some and get some space(!), I also have found that a few are on their way out, theyve started going off and simply need to get used.. Part of this problem was them being stored in a basket, now theyre out where I can properly see them (Although still in a dark corner to conserve them).

I'm not going to attempt to describe the notes of these fragrances, that would be laughable if I were to try.. But all the same, someone might enjoy being nosy at my collection!


Right at the front left is Giorgio Beverly Hills, Ocean Dream.
Theres a teeny tiny bit of orangy yellow perfume left at the bottom!  Its in no way usable as its about 15 years old!  I just keep it because it was the first perfume ever given to me and I like to smell it from time to time, nice memories and all that!

Behind that is Jordans Stunning, the cheapy dupe for Dior's Miss Cherie!
Now, I did buy this from Ebay so it could be old (Im sure on the box there was a 2008 date on it?), or it could've been stored badly.. Or it could just smell this way on me!  But Im not that keen on it.  It doesn't last and its not that clean or crisp smelling, and yet its not totally musky too.. its kind of an icky inbetween!  Seeing as lots of people love it I will assume mine is a little off because I feel something isn't right with it.  As for the cheapness of the plastic bottle and its badly fitting lid, urgh!  This is definately one to be kept off display!

Behind that is Matthew Williamson, Sheer.
Now I took a punt on this one after I saw Laura (Lollipop26) rave about it being one of her favorite perfumes, so I hunted it down online and bought it..  What can I say, perhaps just that Im thankful I only spent £7 on it!  I just dont like it, I also find it doesn't last that long.

Behind that is Giorgio Armani, She.
An Ok fragrance, again Ive had this a while and I think the novelty has worn off with it.  I think its more of an Autumn or evening fragrance, it does last well too, Im just not in love with it and am in the process of using it up.

Behind that Giorgio Armani, Mania.
I really really liked this when it was given to me, but Im just keeping the last bit of it as a reminder!  My Dad bought it for me when he went on holiday, and I'm a bit weird in that sometimes I can't throw things away.. And as far as perfumes are concerned I always like a bit left as a reminder!

Next to that, with the flat top lid is Calvin Klein Eternity.
I used to LOVE this.. Now?  Not so much, and luckily theres only a little left to use up.

Next to that is Hugo Boss Deep Red.
I like this too, its a fragrance I turn to in the evenings or Winter as its quite musky.. Again, this was a present from my Nanna, so its likely a bit of this will get left over!

The tall orange bottle is Kenzo Amour.
My fiance bought this for me, and if Im totally honest (Sshhh), I dont like it all that much!  I told him I like it though and I tend to wear it around him because he likes the scent of it, but for me I feel its a scent for someone older than me.. (Thats just my opinion, so dont bash me if you're only 18 and you love it!)

Next to that is Cerruti 1881.
I used to wear this all the time when I was about 18 through 21, I loved it.  I bought it again when I was about 28 and I discovered Im not that in love with it anymore!  I used to get a lot of compliments when I wore it, but not so much anymore and I dont think I would repurchase.  A classic maybe, but its just not for me.

Infront of 1881 in the little red bottle is Cacharel Amore Amore...
My most recent one.  Again, another evening or Autumn/Winter musky fragrance.  I like it, but I dont love it and so Im doubtful Id repurchase.

Next to 1881 are my 2 Gucci perfumes.
The brown one is another musky scent, the pink one is more floral and girly - a good Summertime fragrance.

Next to the pink Gucci, in a dome shaped bottle is Paco Rabanne Ultraviolet.
I like this, its nice and quite strong, it also lasts well and I think its quite a unique fragrance.

The bottle with atomizer in the middle is Britney Spears Curious..
I'm not completely sold on this (Which is unfortunate considering theres about 99ml left!).  I don't know why, I liked it at first but I'm just not overly keen, it also only lasts a matter of hours too.  I do want to try Fantasy as Ive heard its a nice fragrance.

Right at the front is Thierry Mugler Angel.
My all time favourite!  This lasts the whole day, it smells wonderful and is probably the only one I will adore for a long time to come!  I always get nice compliments when I wear it, it makes me feel feminine and dare I say it, a little bit sexy!  I love the bottle too, its so pretty!  This is probably the one I would recommend to anyone!

I would like a nice, fresh, girly Summer fragrance, is there any you recommend?

I wish people would post more of these, I love having a nosy at peoples perfume collections- I find it so interesting.

I'm really bad with summery fragrances, I don't really think I have any. Nina Ricci's apple shaped bottle one is quite a fruity summery one but it's not everyones cup of tea- that's about as summery as it gets for me! x

Rachel said...

I really must find some new perfumes. The only one I have is Christina Aguilera's first one, which I've bought twice, I really like the scent, soo not bothered by the name on it! Great to have a look at these! xx

Nikki said...

@ Beautyfiend I know, I dont have many Summery ones either. Theres a DKNY one pictured right at the back (v tall bottle), but you can hardly see it.. And because Ive had it for so long (doing my usual 'saving it for best!) it's gone off and is no use at all :0/ But I really like it.

@Rachel, Ive never smelled anything from Christina, I might have a look into that! Thanks :)

missy_ellie_uk said...

Great collection! I've only got about 4, I'm quite good at using them up! For a summer fragrance I really like DKNY Be Delicious and Chloe. x

kat said...

I love Angel and Ultraviolet. Sadly I ran out of UltraViolet and I have way too many perfumes so have to use them up before I buy more.

However one I love that I think is nice, soft and light is Ghost. Either the original or Sweetheart. Or a softer more summery (and cheaper) version of Angel is M&S Cherish.

I have my eye and my nose on Armani Diamonds next.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?
