New Perfumes! & My Favs

Hi beautiful! Wanted to show you the new perfumes I got for Christmas and my thoughts on them :) I've been really into perfumes this year and trying out different ones. I've always loved good fragrances (always spritzing some on before leaving the house) but stuck to my classic one that I wore for years - which was Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture, still a favorite! But I recently discovered some new ones that I really love and my mom was sweet to get them for me. Woop!


(1) Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf 
This is a new love of mine. My friend Emily introduced me to this perfume when she was in New York. At first I thought it was a tad heavy for my taste, but it's grown on me and I am now obsessed! I love oriental perfumes like this one (and the last two pictured above) for days when I'm all glammed up and feeling fab. It just fits perfectly.

Notes: Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia, Patchouli.
Style: Oriental. Gourmand. Floral.

(From Sephora)

(2) Fame by Lady Gaga 
I was unfortunately a bit disappointed with this scent from Gaga! I had high hopes for this one, but it just didn't smell like something she would wear. I was hoping she would create something deeper and fuller - closer to her persona. It reminds me more of the Taylor Swift perfumes. "It smells like strawberries" as my five year old sister said :) She liked it! But still happy I got it because the bottle is beautiful and the fact that the perfume liquid is black is really cool. It's by no means a 'bad' perfume, just not my cup of tea :)

Notes: Belladonna, Incense, Apricot, Honey Drops, Tiger Orchidea, Jasmin Sambac.
Style: Empowering. Mysterious. Fabulous.

(3) Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel & (4) Suddenly Madame Glamour by Lidl 
These two are my babies! :) My mom got them for me because she knows how much I love them. She even got a few extra Suddenly Glamour ones that I will be giving away to some of my viewers! :) Coco Mademoiselle is a fabulous classic perfume - love at first.. sniff! - and the Suddenly perfume is an exact dupe for it! If you want to know more about these perfumes, I have a whole video dedicated to them :) Click here to watch, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9EMvrqsYwc

Notes: Wild Berries, Mandarins, Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Jasmine, Amber, Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Praline.
Style: Tantalizing. Teasing. Tempting.
(From Sephora)
 
Some of my other favorites: 

Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture, Parisienne a l'Extreme by YSL, Angel by Victoria's Secret

  1. I got me the Lady Gaga Perfume on my own - but I really like it - it's like an "every day" perfum, as it is not heavy (:

    Stupid question, but maybe you can help me: Do you now a dupe for the "Prada - Candy" perfume? I'm obsessed with it recently!

    Thanks in advance <3

  13. I love Coco Mademoiselle, but just use the dupe Suddenly Madame Glamour after your youtube. Thanks! I love Dior Pure Poison as a sexy going-out perfume.I wear Burberry Brit as an every day fragrance. I tend to go for sexy and oriental scents.

    My next purchase will be Jimmy Choo Eau de toilette, which is very similar to Flowerbomb. I haven't tried the Juicy perfume that you mentioned. I hear that it is really good...a lot of people wear it though :(

  29. Hi Annie,
    Love your perfume collection! Even if I didn't know how they all smell , they look so cute! I'm definitely will try Flowerbomb because I like the way how you describe it :)
    I also want to share with you some of my favs :) On this moment I have Tresore by Lancome, J'adore by Dior, Bright Crystal by Versace and Incredible by Victoria's Secret.
    I'm pretty sure, that you know all of this. However, I have my very famous one! It's Cerruti 1881 by Nino Cerruti.
    http://www.amazon.com/Cerruti-Nino-Women-Toilette-Ounces/dp/B000E7YJVU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1356652127&sr=8-1&keywords=cerruti+1881+perfume
    It's AMAZING!!! Im not sure if you can by it at store, and if people in the USA know about this one, but Amazon have it. I have mine from Moscow. I have use it about 10 years or more. I always try new one, but I always have Cerruti. It reminds me night Moscow, expensive stores, restaurants and luxurious women. I hope you will get a chance to try it on.

  41. You have such good taste :)
    I love trying new things specially when it comes to perfumes, but ever since i got Chanel Coco Madmoiselle I can't seem to be able to try new perfumes, there's something about Chanel perfumes that i find addicting.
    I'ts perfect and very elegant.
