As previous stated i took these images in daylight hurrah! I have quite a few fragrances, too many to be honest but these are the four i always reach for depending on my mood. from left to right we have marc jacobs oh, lola! guerlain la petite robe noire, vera wang preppy princess and davidoff cool water wave.
First up for review is my marc jacobs oh, lola! i love love love this perfume. Last christmas i worked on the fragrance counter at boots A LOT and i would constantly spritz this. The bottle is so beautiful which is what drew me to it first of all. Scent wise it’s kinda sweet but also has fresher notes to it. It’s a great scent for day time wear as it isn’t too over barring just a nice sweet but also with a fresher/floral side to it. It’s kinda hard to describe but its like perfect amounts of lovely sweetness but not too much like some yano.
This is one of my fresher fragrance, davidoff cool water wave and when i’m not feeling such a sweeter fragrance i always turn to this. I tend not to buy fresher fragrances but for some reason i really like this one. I think it’s because i can kinda smell a ickle hint of sweetness to it so its not ridiculously fresh. That subtle sweetness must be on from fruity top notes.
Davidoff Cool Water Wave fragrance is a surge of fresh, compelling sensuality. Luscious fruits sparkle in the top notes: the worldly pleasure of ripe, glistening Watermelon splashed into a shaker of exotic Mango, tangy Passion Fruit, and engaging Guava. At heart a feminine floral, Davidoff Cool Water Wave picks up the pace with Pink Peppercorn’s sweetness and spice. Its centre lightens the breezes with blossoms of Freesia and Peony. Stirring undercurrents mingle Sandalwood and Iris Wood; Amber accord and Musk intensity cascade into a soft and sensual wave of pleasure.
This is another one i couldn’t get enough of last christmas on the fragrance counter. It is la petite robe noire (little black dress) by guerlain. I had never owned anything like this scent before. It’s a lot stronger than any i normally go for but it reminds of of my childhood as i swear it really really smells like those parma violet sweets but in a good way!! It is perfect for a night out because it is strong but it smells so good! I can definitely pick up the black cherry and licorice.
Fragrance NoteBlack cherry blinks the first wink. It is illustrated by a clever blend that extends exquisite almond and delicious berries.
Last but by no means least i have the vera wang preppy princess. I brought this on a complete whim as it was in the sale and just put my confidence in vera wang as a brand because i hadn’t even smelt it haha i was taken a back by the price (was randomly on offer in boots for £15 for a 50ml) but i am so glad i took a chance but its gorgeous. It’s another great fragrance for during the day. I’m not sure if they sell this anymore as its not on the boots website so maybe that’s why it was such a good deal just to get rid of stock! Again it’s a fruity floral combo like oh, lola, sweet enough but not too much because of it’s floral side. A fruity floral scent is definitely my go to and this one fits the bill perfectly and is a little kinder to my purse strings!!
