Some women have only one signature perfume and that's it. My mother in law is one of those women Elizabeth Arden's Red Door is her ride or die. I, on the other hand, have a few perfumes and I'm not afraid to switch them up. Let's run through them, shall we?
First of all, Kim Kardashian by Kim Kardashian is my guilty pleasure. Brian brought me this for Christmas one year and I thought, 'Oh, great! Kim Kardashian, my favorite.' Then I smelled it and was hooked, for a while. The top notes are African Orange Flower, Mandarin Orange, and Honeysuckle. The middle notes are Jasmine, Gardenia, Tuberose and Spices. The base notes are Musk, Sandalwood, Tonka beans, Orchid, and Woodsy notes. Long story short, it's a fresh/floral scent with a lot of depth.
Roberto Cavalli by Roberto Cavalli was my ride or die all of last year. The top and middle notes are Pink Pepper, African Orange Flower. The bottom notes are Benzoin (no idea what that is), Tonka Beans, and Vanilla. This is a bit spicier than I normally get, but I loved, loved, loved this. You can tell my by completely depleted full-size.
Nicole by Nicole Richie is another celebrity perfume and I really don't usually go for celebrity perfumes. Hands down, this is my favorite perfume packaging. So pretty. The top notes are Blackberry, and Orange. The middle notes are Moroccan Rose, Lily of the Valley, Papyrus, and Amber. The base notes are Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Cashmere Wood. This is such a homey scent. Love wearing this when I'm running errands and lounging around the house.
The last scent I own is Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder (2015). This changes every year (I think) and this year the top notes are Sicilian Bergamont, Mandarin Orange, Lemon, and Orange. The middle notes are Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Magnolia, and Tiare Flower. The base notes are Amber, Coconut Milk, Vetvier, Sandalwood and Myrrh. This is the perfect summer scent. Perfect. It smells like a day at the beach in a bottle.
I italicized the repeat fragrances. Apparently, if it's got orange or tonka beans in it, I'm sold.
Knowing what's in your perfume is really helpful when you're choosing a new one. I found all of my information on Fragantica.com. Check out your perfume collection. What are your repeat fragrances?
