My Favourite Perfume

Viva La Juicy The Body Shop Vanilla Perfume

The other day myself and my mum were talking about perfume. She told me a story about her friend, who had bought a perfume she hadn't worn in a long time and her husband immediately remembered that it was the perfume she wore when they first met. It made me think about how powerful the sense of smell is and how perfume can bring back memories or remind you of someone you know. 

When it comes to perfume, everyone has different preferences and there are literally thousands of scents to choose from. I love having a different scent for day and night, always choosing sweet scents for day and something a bit more spicy for night. 

During the day I've been wearing The Body Shops Vanilla perfume. Obviously I don't need to describe the smell for that one! When I first started wearing it I was a bit worried that it smelled really strong, but the smell calms down quickly whilst still lasting for hours. I always get compliments when I wear it and I like that it's a bit more girly and soft.

For night, I wear Viva La Juicy. Although I said I like spicy scents, Viva La Juicy is describes as a "gourmand floral" scent. It has a mixture of sweet and floral notes from caramel, vanilla (shock) and gardenia as well as deeper, what I would call spicy notes such as amber and sandalwood. It's a bit more of a grown up smell and I think it suits my skin really well!

Both of these bottles are about 3/4 of the way through now and I will definitely be purchasing Vanilla again for everyday, but I'm not sure if I want to mix it up for night! I quite like Viva La Juicy Noir and after a recent trip to Jo Malone, I'm really tempted to get the Oud & Bergamot Cologne. 

What is your favourite scent? Do you mix it up or stick to one perfume? Let me know below!
