My current most worn perfumes

Jo Malone, Blackberry & Bay, Velvet Rose & Oud, Emporio Armani Because It's You, Tiffany, Perfume, Fragrance,

Literally not a day passes where I don't wear perfume - I really am a fragrance addict! Even on duvet days, I will still wear perfume because it always makes me feel better and perks me up. I was one of those kids that tried making perfume from rose petals and other flowers in the garden and I loved if my Mam let me have a spray of her perfume! I own over 30 bottles, which I know is ridiculously excessive but I always receive perfume for my birthday and Christmas and because I wear it daily, none go to waste as I finish a number of bottles every year.   Today I want to share the perfumes that I am reaching for most often at the moment. I finished two summer fragrances at the end of August and am not quite at the rich Winter fragrance stage yet so these are perfect for in between seasons - who am I kidding, they're gorgeous no matter what time of year it is! 

Tiffany & Co. Eau De Parfum: I love this sparkling scent - it's quite sweet but also citrusy and floral with a hint of musk. It isn't at all overpowering and although it's quite sweet, it's sophisticated rather than a 'young' sweet. I can smell it for around 5-6 hours but when I finish this bottle, I think I will try the new Intense version to see if it lasts a little longer on the skin. I adore the bottle, which is inspired by Tiffany diamonds and it's housed in a Tiffany blue box - perfection!

Emporio Armani Because It's You Eau De Parfum: This is actually quite similar to the Tiffany perfume but without the muskiness and less citrus. It's a very feminine fragrance - fruity, sweet but not heavy. I have a full review with the notes here. Again, I really love the bottle - it's quite simple but still looks luxurious. It lasts a good 7/8 hours on the skin and lingers on scarves a little longer.

Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay Cologne: I really love this perfume because it's fruity with a bite. I like slightly fruity fragrances that aren't overly sweet and the bay makes this one slightly tart but it isn't too sharp. I love the classic Jo Malone cream and black labelling and this 30ml bottle is perfect for my handbag. My only negative is that it isn't the most long-lasting on the skin.

Jo Malone Velvet Rose & Oud Cologne Intense:  I adore this warm, rich fragrance. Notes of damask rose, oud, praline and a hint of clove combine to create a sweet and slightly musky scent. It smells sophisticated and luxurious and the bottle reflects that. Because it's in the intense range, I find it lasts longer on the skin than the original colognes - around 7 hours before it needs to be re-applied.

Have you tried any of these perfumes? Sometimes I wish I had a signature scent but I just cannot commit to one as I love so many and it depends on my mood, whether it's day or night-time, the season etc. Do you have one signature scent? I'd love to hear!
