I’ve always been a signature scent type of person. I think I’ve only owned 5 perfumes my entire life (bar the Charlie Red body sprays when I was in my tweens!). First came Dior Addict – which is probably still my all time favourite. Then, I went through the Britney Spears stage; I’m pretty sure I just liked the turquoise bottle with the pink squirter, and I wasn’t suprised when the actual liquid turned green and mouldy after a few months.
Recently, I decided to branch out and bought, wait for it, Dior Addict 2. I felt ever so adventurous!
So this spring, I have decided I am going to try out a few different scents. My newest purchase is pictured above. While it’s not the coveted Dot Eau de Toilette, the Sunsheer edition of ‘Oh, Lola!’ by Marc Jacobs appealed to me both via it’s gloriously fresh scent and fun, quirky bottle.
It’s not the cheapest bottle of perfume, with 50ml coming in at £47 from Boots, but then that’s not the most expensive either. The scent, as described by Marc:
“The fragrance opens with a sheer refreshing top of effervescent raspberry that blossoms into a feminine pink heart of lush peonies. Addictive vanilla imparts a sensual dry down with a flirty, light-hearted touch.”
Whatever that means. I like the smell. It’s not obnoxious, not too flowery and has a little zesty kick to it. And it has a super cool pink flower top, so that’s extra points in my book!
Now – what perfume should I buy next?!
