I never really had a 'scent' when I was younger when my friends did as I just used whatever perfume my mum got me from Next when I said I was running out. I first got my 'proper' perfume when I was sixteen or seventeen for a present and that was Daisy by Marc Jacobs and I loved it - absolutely adored it however it was just too expensive to keep buying. So here came my next love...
- CK One Red -
I fell head over heels in love with CK One when I first bought it as it was on sale for £20 and didn't want to spend a fortune on a perfume every few months. It's been a perfume i've bought and been gifted plenty of times since due to it's healthy price for a nice perfume. I'm not going to even try and explain the notes and scent of CK One - so i'll quote it here.
" The fragrance opens with the bold vibrant freshness of juicy watermelon and violet which fuses with a burst of succulent fruits for a mélange of forbidden exploration. The notes are feminine and addictive, composed of warm white amber, sensual patchouli and intimate skin musk, to create a powerful blend of undeniable magnetism and seduction. "
- Gucci Bloom -
Now Gucci is one of my favourite designers so when I saw Gucci Bloom release I knew I would end up loving it - but didn't want to love it because of the price. I smelt it when I went past a perfume shop with my mum and we swooned with the scent but cried with the price so I knew i'd only ever buy it on offer or in duty free. Then Christmas came with their wonderful gift sets which get slashed in price after Christmas day and I got my hands on the 100ml and Roller ball set for half price at £47... I couldn't deny and i've been in love ever since.
"Gucci Bloom is created to unfold like its name, capturing the rich scent of a thriving garden filled with an abundance of flowers. Tuberose and jasmine combine with Rangoon Creeper—a unique flower discovered in South India that is being used for the first time in perfumery to create a rich fragrance that transports the wearer to an imaginary garden."
I hope you enjoyed this short yet sweet post.
