Top 5 Thursday - Perfumes


Perfumes are one of those necessities in life, without them everything would be so plain and scentless. A perfume can brighten up your day when you spray it on, it can also brighten up someone walking past you's day. However, picking a perfume can be very tricky as there are so many out there that all smell amazing, so I have put together my top 5 for you. I'm going to make 'Top 5 Thursday' a monthly thing so keep your eyes peeled for that! Most of the perfumes I have chosen are sweet, florally fruity scents as those are my favourite, but there are also some more sophisticated scents as well. Also these aren't in any order :)

Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacob perfumes are my favourite, mainly because of their packaging but they also smell incredible. I actually love the Daisy Summer Edition one but it was limited edition so I didn't think it would be nice to put it in here as you can't purchase it any more. Anyway, the Daisy Eau So Fresh perfume has a very light and delicate floral smell. It also has a slight fruitiness in the scent which is probably why I love it. It smells amazing and it is totally worth spending your money on. It lasts for quite a long time but its lasting power doesn't shock me. I like this because it isn't too strong but it's not too light that you can't smell it, it's just in-between :D

Princess by Vera Wang
For some reason my perfume isn't purple like others that I have seen, but it still smells just as lovely. Its quite hard to describe, but it has some hints of vanilla in it. It is also quite florally and has a slight musky scent to it as well. Definitely go and give this a sniff in your local boots, the packaging is also beautiful and the lid is like a little crown!

Insolence by Guerlain
If you are looking for a sweet smelling perfume that isn't to sickly, I recommend this perfume by Guerlain. When I spray it, I think of lush and sweet shops as it is so sweet and girly. But it isn't an artificial sickly sweet scent, its more enchanting and magical haha.

Nina by Nina Ricci
I absolutely love this perfume because of its fruity and sweet scent. I am a sucker for fruity scents and this one has hints of apple and grapefruit. The packaging is alsolovely as the perfume bottle is shaped like an apple and it looks very eye catching.

Lovestruck by Vera Wang
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how amazing the packaging is, I love it! This perfume is a lot less girly and delicate than the others. I'd say its more sophisticated and musky, but still smells lovely nonetheless. Its probably more of an evening scent but its not too strong and overpowering. I really recommend this if you are looking for something that isn't too floral and sweet.

So there we have it! My top 5 perfumes. I hope my descriptions were good enough for you, if you've ever tried describing a perfume then you know how difficult it is, well for me anyway. I hope you liked this blog post and thank you for reading. Have a nice day, bye!
