My Current Perfume Collection

I have been getting a lot of requests lately to do a post about my current perfume collection. I have been wearing perfume for as long as I can remember. A lot of these perfumes go pretty far back but below is a picture of my current favorites. I store them on a black leather tray (I think I got it at T.J. Maxx) on my dresser.

Let me start at the back row from left to right.
1) Jessica McClintock by Jessica McClintock Perfume-This perfume is a little strong for me so I very rarely wear it.

2) Cabotine by Parfums Gres-I simply adore this perfume! This is the second bottle I have owned. It used to by my signature scent and I would get TONS of compliments on it!

3) Fantasy by Britney Spears-I am probably most embarrassed to let people know I own one of her perfumes but every time I wear it, without a doubt, I get a ton of compliments on it. And to be perfectly honest it really smells awesome!

4) Giorgio Perfume by Giorgio Beverly Hills-This one is a oldie but a goodie!

5) Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely-I think my friends get more use out of this one then I do.

6) Juicy Couture Couture Couture-I am loving this perfume! Out of all the different Juicy Couture perfumes this one is far and away my favorite.

7) Chanel Cristalle-I think every woman has that one "expensive" perfume that they only wear on special occasions and this is mine.
Third row from left to right.

8) Burberry London-I wore this perfume for a year straight. I always got people asking me what I was wearing. I only have a tiny bit left so I am saving it for a special occasion.

9) Bath and Body Works Moonlight Path-This is the only scent I really like from B&BW.

10) Vera Wang Princess-I like this but it is nothing special.

11) Kate Spade-This was her first perfume. It was sadly discounted and sells for a really high price on eBay. However, it has scents of Honeysuckle and something else that is indescribable. It is AMAZING!!

12) Juicy Couture Original and Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy minis-I like Viva better but both smell great!

13) Burberry Classic-This is the original scent. I always wear this to job interviews or work events. I feel like it is very sophisticated. It has a blend of peach, apricot, sandalwood, cedar, amber and musk.

Second row from left to right. 

14) Marc Jacobs Daisy-I had LOLA as well but didn't like it as much. This one is more my speed.

15) DIOR Miss Dior Cheri-This is my other really "expensive" perfume that I only wear on special occasions. I think this is one of the most different and interesting perfumes I have ever smelled. At first I didn't like it, but then it grew on me. 

16) Chloe-I love this scent as well! Very different from other scents I have tried.

17) Michael Kors Very Hollywood-I like this perfume but it is not one of my favorites. 

18) MAC Turquatic-This is the older version of this perfume but my favorite of all their scents. I had to get it when I thought they were going to discontinue it-little did I know they were just revamping it. Thanks

First Row from left to right

19) The next 5 perfumes are from Pacifica. I love this line. There perfumes are really affordable and smell great! The first one is Malibu Lemon Blossom, then Tuscan Blood Orange, then Indian Coconut Nectar, Tahitian Gardenia, and finally Hawaiian Ruby Guava. Tahitian Gardenia is my current everyday signature fragrance. I get compliments on it ALL the time. People tell me that they either usually don't wear perfume or can't handle the smell of it on other people but they LOVE this scent. And the whole bottle is on $22!! Can you believe it!! Such a steal!!

20) Thierry Mugler Alien-I just got this perfume and started wearing it. I have to say I wasn't a huge fan of Angel like everyone else was but, I am a HUGE fan of Alien. I love it and will start to wear it on a regular basis.

21) Fresh Strawberry Flowers-This is a good summer scent.

22) The last 3 are from Victoria Secret-Heavenly, Desire, Pink with a Splash Sweet and Flirty and Pink with a Splash of Fresh and Clean (not pictured). Out of all the VS scents Pink's Fresh and Clean is def. my fave! It's a great summer scent!

For now, that is the whole collection! Sorry it was such a long post but I hope you enjoyed it! I am sure I will be adding some more perfumes to my collection soon. I am really lemming Jo Malone's Wild Bluebell, and Dolce & Gabbana's Rose The One. Any perfumes you want to try that aren't on my list? I would love to see your perfume stash in the comments with a link below. Until next time...
