Ah perfumes – those scented vials of water that no matter which way you slice it, always end up cost an arm and a leg. Although perfumes work best when you have a signature scent, I like to shake things up a little and dabble with a number of sweet smelling options, I know, I never play by the rules ;) My collection may contain enough bottles that I need to use my fingers and toes to count them all whoops yet depending on the season or occasion I always turn to the same specific fragrance. Predictably they could be classed in the same category, aka the grown up version of my once young and fruity teenager picks, however I find that the collection I have combines together to create that unique signature fragrance.

With the sun taking a bow my perfume wardrobe has unsurprisingly become a few notes deeper. Nothing akin to the Alien types (still to heavy for me) I am now leaning towards the more sophisticated scents that linger longer on the skin. Everyone’s favourite Stella by Stella McCartney is a classic and ticks all those boxes. Rose blended with sensuous amber gives a light floral scent to begin which then develops over time to slightly deeper fragrance. An everyday beauty I’m already onto my second bottle and carry around a rollerball in my handbag daily.

New onto the scene and in this delectable bow bottle is powerhouse Viktor & Rolfs latest offering. With Flowerbomb being my all time fav I knew as soon as my eyes came a cropper on this newbie I wouldn’t be able to resist. Bonbon contains notes of caramel that matures to a darker base note too adds depth and an air of mystery to the scent. Suitable for an everyday choice or saved for special occasions, you really can’t go wrong with these Viktor & Rolf wonders.
