My Favourite Fragrances At The Moment...

There's just something about perfume that makes me feel confident and it complements my whole outfit and makeup look so I can never leave the house without a few spritzes of my favourite fragrance. Since the start of Spring, I've been loving two new fragrances as well as reintroducing an old favourite from last Summer, so today's beauty roundup is dedicated to my current perfume stash...

Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia*:
You can't beat a classic Jo Malone fragrance in my opinion and English Pear & Freesia is such a versatile scent that I think a lot of people would like! A top note of just-ripe pears and a heart note of white Freesias creates a fresh aroma whilst base notes of amber, patchouli and woods tone down the scent and add a musky, earthy tone to the fragrance. The fresh notes come through with the first spritz and it smells fruity and like juicy pears which always reminds me of a Summer picnic, and after a few hours wear the woody notes start to smell stronger.

I like to reach for this during the Summer months as the fresh notes make a nice change to my usual sweet, floral fragrances but the musky, woody notes make it great for transitioning into the Autumn too. Those musky notes also make it great for evening wear, so for any late night Summer occasions, this would be a great option!

Charlotte Tilbury Scent Of A Dream:
Every time I go to Charlotte Tilbury in Brown Thomas there’s always a gorgeous smell and for the longest time, I thought it was coming from the Jo Malone counter because it's beside Charlotte Tilbury’s counter. However, I realised it was actually their Scent Of A Dream I was smelling and when they had a Black Friday promotion to get a free 50ml bottle with a purchase, I snapped up the chance to try this perfume for myself.

This scent really is a thing of dreams with the dreamy medley of floral, fruity and woody notes. It's packed with top notes of lemon, peach, black pepper, mandarin, bergamot that add a layer of freshness to the scent as well as heart notes including tuberose, jasmine, violet, orange flower, rose oil which adds a subtle hint of sweetness to the fragrance, and finally, the base notes include fir tree, patchouli, precious woods, amber and musks. There are a lot of major notes in the scent so it's bursting with a variety of different layers of fragrance but I'd describe the overall scent as fresh and musky and it's such a confidence-boosting scent for me!

And I have to mention how beautiful the packaging is! If there was an award for dreamiest perfume packaging then this would definitely win! It's like the old glamorous Hollywood perfume bottles you'd find perched on top of those dreamy vintage Parisian style vanity tables. It's definitely the fanciest product I own and I feel like Audrey Hepburn every time I pick it up; "Elegance is the only beauty that never fades"

Roger & Gallet Rose Imaginaire:
This is my second time to try a Roger & Gallet fragrance and what's different about these is that they're fragrant waters, meaning the scent is lighter than colognes and perfumes but it still provides a long-lasting scent. It's perfect for people who find traditional fragrances overpowering as it provides a subtle lightweight scent, and as someone who suffers from nausea regularly, it's ideal for me on days when I'm not feeling well. To me, Rose Imaginaire is a sophisticated floral scent and it's unlike any other rose fragrance I've tried. It has fruity notes including tangerine and strawberry as well as floral notes including jasmine and violet which definitely make it more of a fruity, exotic floral scent than a traditional rose fragrance.
