My favourite scents!

Hello there! This morning I woke up and was randomly staring at the perfumes in my room and I thought it'd be a fun idea to do a post on the ones I enjoy the most. To be honest these aren't actually my 'favourite' ones, I'm missing three because I finished them and haven't had the money to re-purchase them yet! hahah The three that I love the most that aren't pictures are all Elizabeth Arden perfumes. They are Seductive Woman, Revealed and I can't actually remember the last one but it comes in a blue bottle..

Up First, Body Sprays:

Starting from the left;
1. Dove gofresh body mist in Cucumber & Green Tea Scent.
This one is my favourite of all four. The smell really is 'fresh' just like it says. I think it smells really clean and it seems to make me feel more awake. I especially like to wear this one in the summer and I also have the matching deodorant so I'm fully emerged in the cucumber and green tea scent!

2.Warm Vanilla Sugar.
To be completely honest I normally hate vanilla scented things and I really do mean hate! Anything vanilla grosses me out haha. My co-op supervisor bought me this last year at the end of my semester. It came in a cute little mug set with a body cream as well. It's from bath and body works and I actually love the smell of it! I was surprised with myself when I sprayed and thought it smelled so good. It's very light and yummy smelling. I wore it alot last summer but then stopped wearing it as much throughout the year and now when I spray it, it actually brings back memories from last summer! haha

3.Bodycology Cucumber Melon.
This one was also a gift. My best friend bought it for me this Christmas. I absolutely love it! It smells just like candy. It reminds me of the watermelon flavoured Baby Bottle Pops. It's kind of strong for a body mist. mm I just sniffed it and it also reminds me of the watermelon loreal for kids shampoo that's in a funky shaped bottle. haha anyway I find it last for a good while before having to re-spray yourself. I always feel like I want to eat it though :)

4. Calgon Refreshing Body Mist in Coconut Sorbet.
This is another one that surprised me because I do not like anything that is coconut. I bought this one for my mom and she never seems to wear it so I just stole it from her. I don't find that it smells very coconuty but I also have a very hard time trying to describe what it does actually smell like. This one reminds me of summer time. I think Calgon has lots of yummy body sprays, I really like their morning glory and the marsh mellow one.

Next, Perfumes:

So after posting this picture I'm almost regretting it. You'll all have to bare with me because three of these are knock offs and I don't remember the names of a few.

1. Ardene Pretty in Pink.
Got this from Ardene's last Christmas, I'm not sure if you have Ardene's where you live but here it's just an accessory shop, some malls have bigger stores which also carry clothes in them. I really love the smell of this for some reason I almost feel like it's kind of a spicy smell but still very pretty and feminine. I also love the size of the bottle because it easily fits in my purse.

2. This bottle doesn't have any writing on it! I wanna guess and say that it's a knock off of a J.Lo perfume because of the bottles shape, but I'm not 100 %. It smells so pretty, very flowery. My mom bought this at Urban Behaviour it was a 2 for $10 deal.

3. Paris Woman.
This one is a knock off of Paris Hilton quite obviously. This one reminds me of a stereotypical girly perfume. Pretty strong and flowery I'd say. Not a whole lot to say on this one, I mostly wear it if I'm a little bored of my other scents.

4. Kitty Girl
I believe this one is a knock off of Katy Perry's perfume. I love this one. This is the one we got in the 2 for $10 deal. To me it's almost a bit like a mans cologne mixed with a women's perfume. A tad bit musty but still flowery and pleasant. It's alot of different scents in one and it's one of my favourites to wear.

5. Sex in the City Lust.
This was a Christmas present from my mom it came in a set with a smaller travel sized one and two lotions. The bottle is very funky which I like, but my hands are kind of small so it's a little hard to hold and spray. Every time I smell this perfume now I think of winter time. It's a really nice smell, very simple and low key. It's strong enough to last the day but it's not over powering. I would also like to say that I absolutely love Sarah Jessica Parker NYC perfume, it's one of my top favourite perfumes.

6. Pur Desir de LILAS.
As you can tell by the name this perfume smells just like lilacs! This is my mothers absolute favourite perfume and scent, she loves lilacs. This is the perfume I buy her for her birthdays and mothers days. I think you can only buy this perfume at Yves Rocher. Once again I'm not sure what countries have Yves Rocher.

7. Britney Spears Curious.
I have to say that I like all the Britney Spears perfumes. They all smell pretty and all of the bottles are beautiful. I think Curious is the least candy smelling one. This one is more fresh and subtle smelling to me. It even reminds me a bit of lilacs or a garden a bit. The actual reason I bought this perfume is because it was on sale for $20 at shoppers drug mart last summer haha normally I wouldn't buy Britney Spears perfumes because I like to buy funkier smelling scents, but I do still really enjoy this one.

So those are my favourite perfumes, minus a few. I hope I didn't bore you all to death with my non-descriptive explanations. Perfumes are actually really hard to describe and I've just learnt that. :)
