Spring Scents

Today I wanted to share with you all the three newest additions to my fragrance wardrobe. I always wish I was one of those loyal fragrance-wearers who has a ‘signature scent’, the kind that instantly reminds those closest to you of you… but in reality I’m just too fickle with scent and my taste is constantly changing and developing. Over the years I’ve found myself gravitating to more and more ‘grown-up’ scents. I still can’t handle full-on floral but I’ve definitely developed more of a nose for florals and muskier, more unusual scents.
Even though I’m writing this on one of the rainiest days in British history (I’m currently sitting on a 3-hour delayed train due to flooding on the tracks) Spring is definitely on it’s way. These three are all perfect for spring as they are light, fresh and feminine...
The first is Maison Martin Margiela’s ‘Beach Walk’ from their Replica collection. I adore the concept of this range, designed to remind you of specific moments in history, this particular scent being of sun kissed salty skin in Calvi, 1972. I also love the bottles, reminiscent of apothecary bottles with white twine detailing around the neck and no lids. They do, however come with an *eye watering* price tag of £85 for 100ml Eau de Toilette, so for some that’s an automatic turn off, but if you’re into your fragrances they are worth taking a detour for in store to experience them. There are 10 scents in total, some female, some male and some unisex, but Beach Walk is by far my favourite with subtle notes of bergamot, pink pepper, lemon, musk, cedarwood and ylang ylang. Available online here
The second scent I’m loving at the moment is easily one of the most unusual in my collection. It’s part of Jo Malone’s new Herb Garden collection for Spring 2016 and it’s called Wild Strawberry and Parsley. Whenever I think of strawberry notes in a fragrance I assume it’s going to be sickly sweet and probably a younger celebrity fragrance. But the parsley in this fragrance adds a green freshness to the scent that smells unlike any other fragrance I’ve come across. The entire collection is actually very unusual. Again, I would recommend checking it out if you’re into your fragrances and happen to be passing a Jo Malone counter. I personally wasn’t crazy about the other three scents in the collection but love this one when I want something a little different. It’s only available in the handbag-friendly 30ml bottle and is £44. Available online here
Lastly is the latest addition to Chloe’s fragrance collection: Love Story Eau de Toilette. When ‘Love Story’ launched last year, I really wanted to love it (I mean, look at the bottle, it’s simply beautiful!) But something about it was too much for me, too strongly floral and a little heady. I felt the same way about it as I do about the original Marc Jacobs Daisy… I like it in theory, but when I actually wear it, it just gives me a bit of a headache. Last month they launch the EDT version of the original and I’m happy to report I’m a fan! I’m taking baby steps into the floral world but this is a nice in-between for those of you who want to love a floral fragrance like this, but can’t quite handle the full-on effect of an EDP. It’s still got strongly floral notes of Neroli, Orange Blossom and Jasmine, but a little softer and cleaner. It’s £42 for 30ml. Available online here. 

What are your current favourite scents?

  2. I love the original Chloé Love Story, but I agree it is a bit strong so I would love to try l'eau de toilette.

  5. I've also been getting into florals recently, usually I tend to go more for darker violet, sandalwood, vanilla scents. The Elizabeth and James Nirvana White is a great way to try floral without being overboard. I LOVE the Nirvana Black, but I've recently become obsessed with the Nirvana White as well.

  8. I absolutely love the idea of replica perfumes, I love that scents can take you back to a different time and a different place... but that price tag is eye watering!

  15. I love the sounds of the Wild Strawberry & Parsley cologne! I saw it on the John Lewis website and thought it looked the one 'most up my street' from the collection so I'm intrigued to give this one a sniff. I've doused myself with Lime, Basil & Mandarin since I received it for Christmas - I'm nearly all out! The herby, freshness really makes what could be a basic scent into something intriguing, different and SO delicious!

  18. I love sweet scents, especially when the weather warms up! My favorites are Coach's Poppy and Taylor Swift's Wonderstruck--both sweet but not overly floral or fruity.

  50. “LOVE, Happiness, Care is the key to LIFE”. That was the word from Dr happy when I consulted his powerful Love Spell. I married the wrong man; I realized that after Three years of our unfruitful marriage. Everything was going from Best to Worst in our life, no child, I got demoted from work after our marriage, my husband was sacked a year after. His application for new job in various offices was constantly declined even though he was qualified enough. I was made to take care of my family with the low income I earn get that wasn’t enough to pay our rent. We keep praying a seeking for help from some people, my friends laugh at me behind because I was advised not to get married yet.It was one Thursday night that my husband woke me up and told me that has thought enough about our crisis, he said that our crisis is not ordinary and it’s beyond our spiritual level. He suggested we should consult Dr happy from testimonies he showed me online about how he has been helping families. I was afraid, I don’t like evil or spell but I supported him to contact him if he can help us. We consulted him via happylovespell2@gmail.com and he replied positively after 20munites with congratulating email that he can help us but he will need our pure heart and trusts in his work if he will cast the spell on us and purify our life. We agreed to his terms. He cast the spell and told us to expect results within 5days. I waited for three days nothing happened, so I started having doubt and blaming my husband for emailing Dr happy. It was on the fifth day that my husband was called for an interview and he got a well-paying work, I was prompted to a higher position. I missed my period on the 5th day and it was confirmed that I am with a baby. Things have really changed for us for good and we now have our own house and cars. I will never forget what Dr happy told us “LOVE is the key to LIFE”, this word keep me going. People that laughed at us are coming close for help and I am delighted to welcome them because my family is now blessed. Dr happy is a savior and man that keep to his word even when I doubted his powers at the end of the spell. Thank to your Oracle for helping us via happylovespell2@gmail.com

  57. My husband and I have been married for almost 10 years now, we have two children. About seven years ago we moved to Kuwait from the States, for a job offer he got. Now we live in Qatar because he got transferred. Since we have moved out to the gulf he complains that I don’t care about him or love him like I used to. Many things have changed since we have moved away from the states like I work full time and am completing a degree online. I was eighteen when we got married he was my first love and I was head over heels about him, as a person I have changed a lot it’s not that I don’t love him I just don’t have the same fire burning inside of me. All I ask of him is that he supports my return to school and that’s something he refuses to do. He almost always has nothing nice or positive to say about me. For me my marriage isn’t about sex I want to feel appreciated and want to have his support. Because he doesn’t give me those things I find myself pushing him away! Something that really gets to me is the fact that when I ask him about something he always tells me it’s not your business. I am his wife his life is my business. As of now he has moved his things out of our bedroom and we have not spoken to each other in about a week now. One day i was online for tutor, as i was browsing i saw a review about a spell caster who could solve my problem, i have heard about spell casting, and magic, i said i should give it a try i contacted the spell caster his name is Dr Ewan of {covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com}, i contacted him and he told me not to worry that all he had to do for me is a love spell, he did it and told me that i should give my husband 48 hours and that he would realize him self, i waited anxiously and one the second day of casting the spell, he came to me and told me he was sorry for the wrong he did to me, he has agreed to send me to school and we are happy. Thank you Dr Ewan you are the best. If you have any marital problem, winning of lottery and many other problems you can contact him on his email, {COVENANTSOLUTIONTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM} Or call +2347052958531and also check out his website https://covenantsolutiontemple.wordpress.com/, he is a good and kind man.

  59. Hi, my girlfriend of a year had a bit broke up with me and went back to her EX-boyfriend. She said our relationship lacked the conversation piece because am a very quiet person and she don't feel loved by me. I felt heart broken and it affected me that i couldn't concentrate properly at my place of work for i very much loved her and need to get her back and my last chance was getting a love spell. I entered on the website http://doctorokpamenpowerfulspelltemple.webs.com and made contact with the Doctor for i read that he has a lot of positive feedback with his spells. I’m not disappointed because my lover came back to me within 24 hours after getting a love spell from the Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. We are happy couples now and if you need any kind of help, Email him on ( doctorokpamenspelltemple@hotmail.com or whats-app +2348135254384 ). Michael Snapp, +1 (305) 647-6660 USA.
