Perfume Picks

Hey guys! I recently mentioned on Instagram that I couldn’t believe that I’d never written a post about perfume, because I have quite a collection!

So today I’m going to give you a run through my favourites!

IMG_1913Katy Perry’s Meow! | This is my favourite year-around perfume because it is quite light. The most prominent scents are jasmine and vanilla, which keep this perfume sweet and fruity, but it’s not strong or overwhelming. Plus look at how cute the bottle is, I mean it’s a cat, c’mon. I think it’s suitable for day or evening wear!

Zoella’s Let’s Spirtz! | I wanted to mix this post up by including some body mists too, and this one is one of my summer favourites. I think that Zoella Beauty got it really right with this body mist, because it’s a lot stronger than most body mists, I’d definitely class this as more of an affordable perfume. The notes of raspberry and cassis are quite strong, so this is much more of a daytime summer fragrance for me.

Ariana Grande’s Ari | This perfume is really unique, with sparkling fruits and an ultra-feminine floral scent, spun with musks, woods, and a hint of marshmallow. I do really like wearing this perfume, and again it is suitable to be worn year-around, day to night, but the marshmallow tones means that with frequent wear, it does smell a bit too sickly.

Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle | This is actually an oriental fragrance, but it is still surprisingly fresh. Unfortunately because of the overwhelming tone of fresh orange, I can’t wear this perfume very often because it is really strong (and people tend to love or hate it.) It also contains light accords of jasmine and rose, which adds to the overall freshness of this perfume. I tend to reserve it for when I’m going out now, because it’s a long-lasting perfume, guaranteed to last through the night.

IMG_1918Ted Baker’s Body Mist | This body mist is actually the reason I picked up a Ted Baker gift set back during the Christmas period. This is my favourite body mist to wear, because it’s main notes are grapefruit and mango. These, teamed with subtle floral notes of neroli and jasmine, makes this another suitable scent for every occasion, all year around. I just wish it wasn’t so water based, so it could last longer.

Beyonce’s Heat | This perfume really lives up to all of the saucy advertisement surrounding it. It’s super sexy, perfect for wearing in the inescapably warm summer evenings. I can’t do this scent justice, so I’ll leave you with the description from the site, “Heat is a floral, fruity, woody perfume that features rare, sensual flowers and is both feminine and irresistible.”

Katy Perry’s Killer Queen | This self described ‘floriental fragrance’, contains notes of dark berries and lush plum that ‘blend into an opulent floral heart.’ It then blends into an intoxicating background of precious woods and sensual musk. This is no doubt, a highly unique fragrance, again I think it’s a more of an evening fragrance, just because it’s deeper than most scents.

Katy Perry’s Purr | In an online survey, people voted this fragrance as a Spring daytime perfume, and I think it’s mainly down to its main notes of forbidden apple and green bamboo. It maintains itself as a girly and wearable fragrance, with the heart of jasmine, pink freesia and Bulgarian rose.


That’s it for my top perfume picks, I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know in the comments what your favourite all time fragrance is!
