Someone once told me that when picking a perfume, you never want to pick a scent that dominates you or a room. Instead you want to pick a a scent that compliments you.
This is something that has always stuck with me because, it’s true, your perfume should be a part of you. Plus, there is nothing better than someone complimenting you on your perfume! Literally, it’s one of my favorite compliments to get!
Growing up, I always wanted to find my own scent. That if someone gave me a hug or borrowed a sweater, it would always smell like my perfume. In the past few years, my scent has definitely become a mixture of all of the Burberry perfumes. Below you will notice that three out of my five favorite perfumes are Burberry and I cannot rave enough about their perfume collection. While I have older perfumes that I will always love and new scents that I am completely obsessed with, my Burberry perfumes take the win every time.
(My Everyday & Office Fragrance)
Burberry Body is my absolute favorite go-to perfume. It’s an effortless & luxurious scent that I truly wear every single day. It’s perfect for the office because it’s not obnoxiously powerful, yet it smells lovely and will last all day! I always receive a ton of compliments on it, which always throws me off because I cannot smell it on me. Growing up, strong scents would give me terrible head aches, so I love that this perfume doesn’t bother me, yet still has a strong enough presence that strangers compliment on it.
(Spring & Summertime Fragrance)
My favorite spring/summer fragrance is Burberry Rhythm For Her . It’s light, sweet, and not even the least bit overbearing. It has a hint of a floral sent to it and it leaves a feminine spring time feel. This scent has me dreaming of warmer day and aching for spring time dresses.
(Fall & Winter Fragrance)
Burberry Brit Eau is absolutely the best fall/winter fragrance! Unlike the Burberry Rhythm from above, this one is not sweet at all. It’s a lot like the Burberry Body, but I think it’s a little bit more seductive and yet still very fresh. It’s just a very sexy fragrance. Which I think makes it perfect for the cooler seasons! Also, note that they recently changed the bottle for this fragrance since I last bought it.
(Girls Day Fragrance)
Marc Jacobs Daisy is a forever staple fragrance on my shelf. I have been wearing Marc Jacobs Daisy since before college and I will always love it. It’s a sweet and light weight scent, much like the Burberry Rhythm. I really recommend this scent for teenagers and young adults. It smells absolutely beautiful and still gives off a presence of innocence. When Hannah asked me for a new perfume for Christmas, I immediately knew that this was what I would be getting her!
(Date Night Fragrance)
Miss Dior, my newest love and latest obsession! One of my friends has worn Miss Dior for years and she always smells so divine. As I typed that, I realize how creepy that sounded lol, but seriously, she always smells phenomenal. I’ve never bought it though, because like I said above, everyones skin takes scents differently. I wasn’t sure how it would smell on me, but after receiving a few samples, I have fallen in love with it. I literally ran out of my samples this week and will definitely be picking up a bottle this weekend. It’s very feminine and sweet. It’s a little bit heavier than all of the rest of the fragrances I listed, but smells incredibly beautiful. Perfect for a date night!
