Lately I was lucky to get some new perfumes to try out so I thought I'd make a follow-up of my perfume collection post which I wrote in February. And as we're approaching Christmas why not also take this post as a little gift guide? As the four perfumes I'll be introducing all have a very different scent you'll surely find one for every woman in your life.
Valeur Absolue - Harmonie
You may already have seen this perfume on my blog as I got it in the second Pochette de Janette. The scent is composed of musk, neroli, Earl Grey tea, wood and vanilla which make it a really strong perfume which I couldn't compare to anything I've smelled so far. The flacon contains amethyst stones which are supposed to be the symbol of harmony.
Cartier - Baiser Volé
This and the following two perfumes have been presents from the perfumery Paris 8 where I've been attending an event lately. The smell of this perfume is sweet yet intense and grown up. The key scent is that of a lily.
Dolce & Gabbana - Dolce
The scent of Dolce is what it says: sweet. But also really flowery and playful. To me it's a perfume rather for young girls.
Tom Ford - Black Orchid
Finally this very special perfume by Tom Ford. I have heard many good reviews on this one so I was really curious to try it out. When I first applied it however I was a bit disappointed. It smelled like a men's perfume at first. The name is indeed appropriate as it definitely has a black note. But then you also clearly smell the orchid and the longer I wore the perfume, the more I learnt to appreciate it. Again it's a really intense and grown up scent but with a certain playful twist. The perfect perfume for women who appreciate men's perfumes and who are self-confident.
Below I made a little shopping widget with the featured perfumes and some other favourites of mine. As I said you can also buy the last three perfumes at Paris 8 in Luxembourg.
What are your favourite perfumes of the moment? Would you like to find a new perfume under the Christmas tree or do you think it's an unoriginal present?
