As a perfume-holic it was hard to compile my top 3 high end perfumes, nevertheless, I took on the challenge, went through my collections and here is what I have determined as the best of the best.
3. Carolina Herrera – Good Girl
Floral: Tuberose, Jasmin Sambac
Oriental/ Tasty: Tonka Bean, Cocoa
This perfume is sexy, sensual and seductive, for the good girl who is a little bit of a bad girl on the inside. The bottle comes in the shape of a stiletto which is sexy in itself. Once you wear this perfume, you will be addicted, it’s so yummy on the skin and long lasting. This is one of those perfumes I am always questioned about when I am out. It not only intoxicates me, the wearer, it intoxicates everyone around me.
Another reason this perfume is one of my favourites is the fact that I bought it on my last trip to Greece. Every time I put this perfume on, it takes me back to the department store in Athens where I first sprayed it. I love associating my perfumes to events in my life. A scent can really take you back to moments in time and places of sentimental value.
When I love a perfume, I don’t need to wearing in only one season, I wear it year round, however, I would say this is more of a day time fragrance, either for going on a shopping spree or lunch with the girls at your favourite spot.
RRP $198AUD 80ml
RRP $119USD 80ml
2. Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris – Gentle Fluidity Gold
Juniper, Nutmeg, Coriander, Musks, Ambery woods, Vanilla
Where do I start, wow, just WOW!! If you want a perfume that lasts all day, all night and through to the next day, well, you’ve come to the right place. I have found that perfume for you. This sexy scent will have heads turning and people wondering what you are wearing, how you smell so delicious! The floral notes combined with the vanillaey, woodsy notes is mesmerising. A truly unique scent, the one you wear to stand out from the crowd.
I would describe this perfume as fun, sexy, glamorous and sensual.
RRP $267AUD 70ml
RRP $225USD 70ml
1. Cartier – La Panthère Edition Soir EDP
Gardenia, Oakmoss, Musk
Well this comes as not surprise to me that this is my number one scent, as Gardenia is my most favourite scent of all time, give me gardenia everything, candles, diffusers, perfumes…(stay tuned for my affordable perfume faves 😉). Don’t be disheartened by the addition of gardenia to this perfume, it’s not a gardenia scented perfume, when you first spray this perfume you will smell the beautiful florals, however, once the scent starts to wear in, you will start to notice the mossy and musky scents come to life and in turn this scent will give you life!
I would describe this perfume as exciting, sexy and glamorous.
This perfume is perfect for night time wear, you are guaranteed to have heads turning with this one. Another unique scent that will have you standing out from the crowd.
RRP $177AUD 75ml
RRP $129USD 75ml
My tips for wearing perfume
1. I always spray some perfume in my hair, imagine the wind in your hair and that scent flowing, it also makes your pillow smell good.
2. I spray my perfume from around 20cm away from skin, 2 pumps, one on the wrist and one at the elbow fold for a lasting smell
3. If you want to smell extra yummy, add a spray behind your knees, the area is a pulse point and will release your scent through the day
I hope you enjoyed getting lost in some fragrance goodness, now it’s your turn, let me know what your favourite high end perfume is. Have you tried any of the ones I have in my list? What do you think of my choices? Looking forward to chatting to you.
Until nest time beauties, be kind to yourselves (and others).
