In an attempt to get back into blogging, I've decided to link up with Rachel at Just Peachy for Top 5 Tuesday. This week's theme was perfumes, and this way more tough than I thought it would be since I'm obsessed with all things beauty! Nevertheless I was able to come up with the 5 scents that will always have a spot in my collection. Let me know if you link up as well...I would love to read your top 5!
1. Viva la Juicy by Juicy Couture
I was on a mission to buy another perfume just for the sake of buying when I came across this AMAZING scent! I was in Kohls and spritzed this on my wrist and immediately fell in love. As I was shopping the rest of the day I couldn't stop smelling my wrist!! So I had to go back and get it! I got the smaller bottle and used up almost half in the first month that I had it. I don't wear perfume everyday (see favorite body sprays next) but when I do this is the first one I grab!
2. Bath and Body Work Twilight Woods
When I initially smelled this scent in the store I was not a fan. But one balmy Saturday in the South my friends and I were sitting in Williams-Brice getting ready to watch out Gamecocks play, when my friend whipped this out of her purse and sprayed it all around us. I was in love! Its definitely a more sensual scent but since it's in the body spray form it is light enough to be wore during the day. I have the mini version in my purse at all times and spray it a couple times if I rushed out the door without a fragrance or need a refresher throughout the day.
3. Bath and Body Works White Citrus
This was my signature scent this summer! I had a coupon for a free Signature B&BW item and my mom suggested this scent. I usually go for more girly/florally scents so something fruity was a bit of stretch, but I used over half of the full-sized bottle in about 3 months! While it is more of a summer scent, I still find myself reaching for it when I need an energizing pick-me-up.
4. The Beat by Burberry
This was my perfume discovery last summer! I got this scent as a sample when I ordered from Sephora and couldn't help but wear it everyday. Like I said I tend to gravitate towards girly scents, so this one caught me by surprise! It almost smells uni-sex but it has just the little something that makes it girl-oriented (they do have a men's version). Next time you're in the store definitely give this one a sniff!
5. Very Hollywood by Michael Kors
And were back to the girly scents! I only have this one in a rollerball but I still love it! If you're uncertain about a scent I definitely recommend grabbing it in a rollerball and seeing how you like it before splurging on a full bottle. Plus they're really easy to carry around in your purse if you don't feel like hauling around a mini body spray. ANYWAYS...this scent is SUPER girly and floral smelling! Some say its a scent more suitable for nighttime, but I think it's perfectly fine for daytime as long as you don't get too heavy handed! Plus the bottle is so pretty (and we all know thats half the reason we buy perfume!)
Here's hoping I'm back to a more scheduled posting!
