Beyonce Heat Rush, 50ml, £26.50
Victoria Secret Very Sexy Now, 75ml
 
  Years of lengthy bus rides stuck behind women who smelt almost as if they'd bathed in perfume massively put me off trying any for myself. It's only in the past few years that my interest is slowly growing. I know I'm not alone with this, but heavy, musky scents don't seem to mesh well with me and instead give me an almighty headache. All three perfumes I'm showing you today are very sweet, fruity fragrances - so if you're a fan of more sophisticated scents, look away!
This perfume is fruity and delicious, a slightly lighter version of the 'Very Sexy Now' - it's top notes include Passion Fruit, Blood Orange and Brazilian Cherry, heart notes are Mango Blossom, Yellow Tiger Orchid and Orange Hibiscus and base notes are Teakwood, Honey Amber and Musk Accord. I know some people are a bit put off by Celebrity inspired and backed perfumes but I couldn't care less and I love Beyonce - she's one hot mama!
I picked up the Victoria Secret 'Very Sexy Now' perfume a good few years ago when I visited New York on a college trip. As imagined, the minute we were let loose, me and three other girls from our year grouped up for a spending spree. On our list of places to visit was Sephora, of course and Victoria Secret. Strangely enough I didn't purchase any underwear, just beauty products and fragrances - but back then I was on a student budget. As soon as we walked in to Victoria Secret I caught a whiff of something tropical with a hint of vanilla and after dragging the girls round the store finally found what I was looking for - the Very Sexy Now fragrance. Every time I use this it brings back memories of the trip and college, plus it smells divine!
And finally, my most recent find - Laura Mercier's Creme Brulee Eau De Toilette that set me back £41.50. I purchased this whilst shopping the sales, although this wasn't a sale item, I happened to be perusing Laura Mercier counter and it caught my eye. Initially I sprayed this on my mum who was with me, involuntary I may add, purchased my sale items then headed off. I later smelt a sweet, delicious scent lingering in the air and after moments of confusion figured out it was coming off my mums wrist so quickly hurried back and made my final purchase of the day. This fragrance incorporates the scents of warm caramel, spun sugar, french vanilla bean and white musk.
Other recommendations; Victoria Secret Beauty Rush Double Body Mist's, Issey Miyake L'eau D'Issey Eau De Toilette and Vera Wang Princess.

19 beauty obsessed ladies have an opinion...:

  1. Personally, I think musky scents also overpower me, but there are times that I like them. Fruity floral is the best for me!

  2. Mines Viktor and Rolfe Flowerbomb - it's so expensive though! :( I'm not a lover of a lot of the celeb fragrances as they tend to be sickly sweet.
