A Personal Guide to Perfume

Perfumes and fragrances are a tricky subject to tackle. What may smell enticing to one person may smell repulsive to another, therefore this post is intended to recognize my own personal fragrance preferences and why I would recommend these particular perfumes to other individuals.

  • Juicy Couture, Viva La Juicy: I received this perfume as a gift when I was in the eighth grade, and it remains to be a personal favourite of mine. According to its description on Sephora.com, this fragrance contains scents of wild berries, mandarin, vanilla, praline, jasmine, and honeysuckle. I find that this scent lasts for hours on my skin, and it can be worn both casually and formally. It is a bit on the heavier side, however I do not find it overpowering when used in an adequate manner.
  • LaVanila, Vanilla Summer: This fragrance offers a combination of pineapple, coconut, sugar cane and vanilla notes and acts as a fantastic summer scent. It does not wear off throughout the day, and a little goes a long way.
  • Skin, CLEAN: I discovered this fragrance brand through my sister’s recommendations, and their perfumes stay true to their name. Their scents are crisp, raw and clean, and they are wonderful for persons who try to avoid overpowering scents. CLEAN combines scents of honeydew, lotus blossom, petals, blue rose, musk, amber wood, vanilla and aquatic notes and can be worn seasonally.
  • Philosophy, Amazing Grace: Similar to CLEAN, Philosophy tends to create perfumes that are light and simple. Amazing Grace contains powdery florals, specifically lily of the valley and musk, and I would categorize it as a classic feminine scent.

To reiterate, these recommendations are entirely personal and may not benefit all persons. Explore the scents you prefer when designating a fragrance and be sure to purchase something you enjoy and can wear flexibly.
