Fragrance Addiction – An Update

As you may already know, I am a self confessed Perfume addict. I love scents, packaging, the sales spiels etc etc At one stage I would have called myself out of control when it came to buying fragrances. I’m ashamed to say that it’s a luxury I never denied myself.


As I looked at my perfume shelf this morning, I felt disheartened. I had many many options but I couldn’t decided. I wasn’t really feeling any of those particular fragrances today.

It is on days like this that I find myself popping into my local Boots and buying myself a new one. This would have been an easy thing to do since I have my eye on Emporio Armani Diamonds (since I smelled it on my friend Rebecca last weekend!).

I am proud to say that I resisted the urge to run out and buy a new one. Instead I popped on some mens fragrance. Yes, mens. I settled on Diesel Plus Plus – Masculine. I did wonder if I did in fact smell like a man or whether I could pull it off.


In total I received three compliments and one question about todays chosen scent. It’s quite a cosy scent and I think it’s quite unisex.

This has intrigued me. Dare I delve into the world of mens fragrances to further explore my fragrance addiction? Watch this space.

What’s your favourite fragrance?

    My ultimate favourite for a night out is my coco chanel. love it love it love it. my second would be J-Lo Glow After Dark. Then after that I like the Avril Lavigne Black Star its really nice. The Ghost perfume in the purple bottle and a light blue bottle are really nice. not sure of the names of them though. Valentino Rock and Rose is also really nice, and of course good aul noa!

    I have a really hard time buying fragrances because of my overly sensitive nose =[

    On men, I like the fresh clean scent on them =] I absolutely DREAD Axe, it’s the worst smelling thing ever T.T

    I’ve got to say, I love perfume too and I love the idea that the guru Queen Beauty had on youtube, that you have a different signature scent, for each season. I had a lot of summery/ spring fragrances and since the weather has changed I just wasn’t feeling my collection. Then a got a sample of ‘Alien’ by Thierry Mugler in the December issue of Instyle magazine and it is gorgeous. This is definately my new signature scent for this season and the bottle it comes in, looks gorgeous on my vanity. I had also seen swalkernakeup on youtube, raving about this perfume, so I knew it was going to be an excellent buy. xxx

    My absolute favourite perfume is Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle. I also love Narciso Rodriguez- For Her, Stella McCartney’s Stella, Clinique-Happy and YSL-Baby Doll.
    I’m always looking for another perfume, I agree that it is an addiction!

    My favourite is whatever I’m in the mood of wearing at that time – I have so many! :) That said, my all time favourites are Hermes perfumes done by perfumer Elena (the same guy who did Bvlgari Green Tea perfumes). For “heavier” scents my current favourite is Lancome Magnifique.

    I’m always on the look out for a nice new fragrance, but I find it hard to decide for something new. I’m too comfortable with the known I guess. Also, I find what smells good on one person might smell totally different on someone else. I have Diamonds, got it as a present, but am not too fond of it. I have actually never used it :(

  • Musing on Beauty

    I am so picky when it comes to scents, because a lot of them give me horrible headaches. I have been wearing Korres Vanilla Cinnamon body water for years but it’s now discontinued :(
    I also own Kenzo Amour that I wear for special occasions.
