Birmingham, UK


So I wear perfume pretty much every day, even to work and I have a few that I purchase religiously. They've probably cropped up in other posts before now but I thought it would be nice to dedicate a separate post to the perfumes I buy and wear the most. So here are my 3 all time favourite perfumes...

Avon Rare Pearls - I'm going to start with the perfume that I've probably been using the most. This little beauty has been my signature scent since I was 15 and I don't think that will change anytime soon. Its strong floral fragrance almost has a boozy scent to it that takes me back to my holidays as a teenager. Although the bottle design has changed over the years the memories that flood back to me when I get a whiff are always the same. Rare Pearls retails at around £13 although it's often on offer.

Avon Little Black Dress - Another budget bottle from Avon, this one retailing at around £8. It has a pretty subtle floral scent that reminds me of celery but in a nice way. The bottle is pretty plain, as are many of the Avon scents but this doesn't take away from its beautiful feminine fragrance. This has been my 'go to' perfume for quite a few months now and I always get asked what I'm wearing when I'm out, I wish I could lie and say its Chanel but I'm a bit too common for a scent like that.

Marc Jacobs Dot - On the other end of the scale completely is Dot. Let's be honest, anyone who buys Marc Jacobs' perfumes usually do so because of the amazing packaging regardless of what it smells like. That was the reason I bought Dot originally, but it quickly grew on me and is now a firm favourite. As it's a little pricey I usually save this for nights out and special occasions but I always make sure I have a bottle open at home. Dot retails at around £50 for 50ml.

So those are the perfumes that I will always repurchase. As you can tell I'm a bit of a budget girl when it comes to fragrance but I honestly can't tell the difference between something bought in Bodycare to something bought in Selfridges.

    1. Avon is literally the best for budget perfumes! I always get complimented on what I'm wearing! xx

  2. Some even registers that you can put your name on for them to send you tests by post. Likewise,Amy Adams Anti Aging Products it may merit your time and energy to make a rundown of other retail chains to look at since they all don't really convey a similar choice of perfumes.
