Perfumes : Past, Present and Future

Exams are over, lectures have started and I am finally relaxed. I've finally cleared my room of revision notes (I used my entire floor as a desk...) and I've done a huge load of laundry. And now I can blog again :) Hopefully more consistently than this past month...

I've been looking over my perfumes and thought I'd share all the perfumes I used to have, currently have, and want to have, because recently (over the past year or so) I've found myself really loving (and wanting more) perfumes. (By the by, I'm terrible at describing smells so I'm just going to say what I thought of them :P).

Past :

Lacoste Touch Of Pink - My first ever perfume, I think I got this when I was 14 or 15. I wanted it solely because of the advert...and the fact that it was pink. I used about a quarter of the bottle over the course of a year, and then decided I really didn't like it so gave it away.

Valentino Rock N Rose - This was love at first smell :P I used it all up in less than a year. I really want to buy another, it's been a few years but I'm certain I'll still love it.

Bvlgari Omina Green Jade - This perfume was a gift, and I hated it :P It didn't smell good at all. Probably because it was far too grown up for me, I gave it to my mum, but she didn't like it either...

Present :

Benefit Something About Sofia - This is a lovely floral perfume, it used to be my everyday one, but got replaced by better ones. I still really like it and sometimes wear it though. I love the bottle and occasionally spritz it on my clothes so my wardrobe smells nice.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh - My current everyday perfume. I'll wear this during the day, going to lectures, shopping or going to the library. It's such a pretty light floral scent it really does improve my mood when I wear this :) I made sure to put some on before every exam so I could sniff it if it got too stressful, it actually worked :P

Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum - I bought this after smelling a sample in a magazine and falling in love with it. It's perfect for nights out clubbing or going to bars, it has that sort of late night feel to it. However I don't wear this as often as I should, even though it's really yummy.

Chanel Chance - My favourite perfume of all time (so far at least). This is grown up and gorgeous. I feel somewhat sophisticated when I wear this, and I cannot get enough with how gorgeous it is. There's something very decadent about this smell. This is definitely my most worn perfume of my current set.

Valentino Valentina - Another favourite from Valentino, I've been pining after this one for a while and my boyfriend got it for me for Christmas ^ - ^ It's gorgeous and romantic, one to wear out to a restaurant or to a nice bar.

Future :

Taylor Swift Wonderstruck - I am an embarrassingly big Taylor Swift fan and I really really want this. Just to satisfy my childish love of pretty sugary sweet pretty things :P

I'm going to go back to my book now, because I finally have time to read again! I'm thinking of maybe doing book reviews occasionally, I sort of did a half hearted one for The Return Of The King in my last monthly favourites post and I'd like to try more.
