top 5 favourites series: perfume

Welcome to the second installment of my top 5 favourites series! In the last post, I talked about my favourite lips products. Today, it is all about perfume. I have quite a lot of perfumes that I love, so I found it difficult to narrow it down to just five. Thankfully, I managed to make my decisions. Oddly enough, the are ended up being 'celebrity' fragrances. Go figure!

Without further ado, here are my top 5 favourite perfumes.

1. Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
The award for my most-worn perfume has to go to Wonderstruck. I find myself wearing this during the day or on a night out. It is a truly versatile fragrance. The bottle is super cute - and most importantly, the scent is lovely. It smells sweet with soft floral accents. The smell isn't overpowering but has good longevity, especially if you layer it with the Wonderstruck body lotion. This isn't just one of my favourite scents, my boyfriend loves it too! He always seems to compliment me when I wear it.

2. Heiress by Paris Hilton
In the spring and summer, I tend to wear a lighter fragrance. This is when I reach for Heiress! In general, I am a huge fan of Paris Hilton perfumes. This Paris perfume is one of my favourites. It blends light, fruity scents with hints of jasmine and lily. Heiress is the best perfume for a day out in the sunshine.

3. Hidden Fantasy by Britney Spears
There are certain smells that take you back to a certain time and place. For me, that is Hidden Fantasy. Every time I smell it, I am reminded of some special memories that I cherish. Perhaps this perfume made the list for sentimental reasons, but I do love it. Hidden Fantasy is sexy and seductive - making it the perfect finishing touch for date night.

4. Snooki by Nicole "Snooki" Pollizi
....and this is probably when you start rolling your eyes, right? Hear me out: I love Snooki, unapologetically. And I love her perfume! It is bold, memorable, and absolutely perfect for a night out at a club or bar. It smells sexy, feminine, and fun. Best of all, the scent lasts all night long - even if you're fist bumping. 

5. With Love by Hilary Duff
If you're looking for a hint of sophistication, With Love may be the best perfume you could ask for. The fragrance blends unforgettable spices with a light mango scent. With Love has become a night-out staple for me! If I'm feeling classy and feminine, than I tend to reach for this bottle. It is the perfect addition to a little black dress and smokey eye.

These are my top 5 favourite perfumes....what are yours?

  18. Hey this is a great post - I really enjoyed reading it. I haven't heard of any of them before but they all sound really nice. I agree about when it turns to summer, to reach for something a little lighter. I love Tommy Girl for summer! - my favourite! Then Ghost for winter, it's a bit muskier.
    Much love, and great post! Sarah x

  19. I don't love Paris Hilton, but I do like some of her perfumes.
    My favs at the moment are Marc Jacobs Daisey, Calvin Klein Euphoria,
    Givenchy Very Irresistible, Marc Jacobs Lola, and Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue for summer.
