Oh, what a lovely scent...

Hello my lovelies!

Today I thought I would share with you my top 4 scents that I have been loving in January and will continue to use in February. These were all gifted to me at Christmas time (such a lucky girl) but I will make sure to find links and prices so you can easily pick them up if you want to! Just a warning I only really like sweet smelling perfumes so if you don't look for that in a perfume, then these might not be for you! (P.s. disclaimer, I am not great at describing smells but I will give it my best shot).
First up is Calvin Klein's CKIN2U for her. This perfume brings back a lot of memories for me, I used to use it when I was in secondary school and then stopped using it for some unknown reason. My lovely sister bought this for me though and I am loving it again! I wear this perfume every day as I think it is perfect for the daytime, I personally wouldn't wear this at night because I think it is too floral. Although saying that, this is one of my more 'subtle sweet' ones. It starts off really sweet and then gets a bit woody near then end.
Next is Beyonce's Heat perfume. I love the bottle of this because it screams elegance and sophistication - it looks great on my shelf as well as smelling great. I use this scent as a more of an evening smell, because like I said it makes me feel sophisticated - who doesn't want that on a night out?! This has very rich tones with just a hint of sweetness as an after smell. It lasts a long time on the skin and I always get compliments when I wear this.
This one is a bit of a cult classic, Britney Spears Midnight. This is my sweetest perfume out of all 4 and it just smells like candy. Imagine having a bath in loads of sweets - yeah, that. After a while of developing on your skin it does become more subtle so it isn't overpowering. I love having a small bottle of this because it is the perfect size to carry around for when you need a quick spritz!
This final one is my favourite so I have left it till last. This one is Red Door by Elizabeth Arden. This perfume reminds me of my Mum, she always wears it and it makes me very happy. I use this one for special occasions and use it sparingly because it is quite expensive and it wouldn't be my favourite if I used it every day! I would describe this as a mature scent, it always reminds me of being classy. It is sweet yet again but it does have quite a few woody tones. This lasts ages on my skin and I just feel like it completes an outfit and makes me feel wonderful.

What are your favourite scents? Are any of them the same?

Speak soon!
