Spring Scents


Every season I switch out my perfumes for scents that I feel match the season, I have a cream vintage bird cage on my vanity that I place my seasonly collection in. I usually have a couple of season appropriate scents and then a couple of sexy, musky scents that I wear out to dinner. (Please excuse the over-use of indie filters...I'm beginning to really love them (guilty face)) 

Wonderstruck is the first perfume by Taylor Swift and is literally the perfect scent for the springtime. It's light and floral and will stick around for about 3 hours, but fades after that. I'll usually wear this for school because it's such a pretty scent but it does fade quite considerably over the day. The bottle is really, really pretty. It's a mid-bluebell colour and contains thousands of specs of holographic glitter. The cap is gold and nicely detailed, and the charms (dove, star and cage) are all permanently attached to the bottle.  I received this as  a gift from my grandparents for Christmas. Here is what it is supposed to smell like "a charming gourmand – floral with sparkling fruity tones on a wooden background. The top notes are raspberry, dewberry, green tea, freesia and apple blossom. The heart features sweet vanilla along with sundrenched honeysuckle and white hibiscus. Notes of golden amber, musk, sandalwood and peach are in the base." You wanna fit anything else in there? 

Thierry Mugler's Womanity is my perfect musky perfume, it's a deep, sexy scent that lasts for a really long time. I like wearing this out to dinner, it's my go-to spring evening/event perfume and I've gotten loads of compliments on it! This sticks around for about 4 hours which is perfect for a night on the town. The bottle is clear and has a robotic/dystopian feel to it, the glass is oval in shape and the bottle itself is very tall. At the top is the cap and detailing you can see in the picture. The chains running down the back actually attach the cap to the silver plating on the bottle, so you'll never lose it! "natural aromas of fig for sweet accords. Savory notes originate from caviar and the structure in ensured by fig wood aromas."

Prada: Candy is hugely disputed, some love it, some hate it. I am one who loves it (can you see how much I've used up?) and I've had it for just over a year I think. I really love the chic design of this bottle, it's so simple. The glass has a warm golden tone to it, all the metal accents are gold, the pink part looks like quilting and the spray part is black with gold accents. I like how this bottle doesn't have a lid, so you don't have to bother with that, you can just spritz away! It has a beautiful sweet scent, I admit it took me a while to get used to it but once on the wrist for a couple of minutes it smells much nicer. "The composition includes an elegant mix of musks in the top, a sensual balsamic vanillic accord of benzoin in the heart and sweet modern caramel in the base of the fragrance" .It really does smell sugary, caramel and candy-like. Sweet. 

I'm not fond of body sprays or body mists, I'm very much a perfume person. However, after being given this Soap & Glory fragrance last Christmas by a friend, I figured I may as well try it and OHMYLANTA! This smells so good, and it is a little moisturising. I think that the moisturising complex would have better effect on someone who wasn't born with permanent baby's skin, but this smells brilliant! You can definitely smell soft fruity notes, it's a little peachy which is good because that's my favourite fruit. I Girligo as a body mist/fragrance rather than a moisturiser. 

I hope this gave you some ideas as to what kind of scents you want to pick up for this spring, my friend Emma over at Anchors Away Beauty recently did her own favourite scents post. Have a fabulous springtime, let's pray that this shitty weather doesn't carry on much longer. 

I only have 2 weeks left until I'm done with school forever!!!
