Perfume Collection Part 2 - Estee Lauder, Versace, Marc Jacobs, Herve Leger and Tommy Girl

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess
I can’t find this anywhere online to give you the composition but my friend thinks it smells mainly of oranges! I think it’s similar to this description of the new scent from The Perfume Shop: “Inspired by the warmth of the Mediterranean, a citrus floral blend with notes of Bergamot and Orange Blossom.” There is something very summery about this and it always transports me to a faraway beach! Saying that, I probably won’t repurchase it as I’ve overused it now and it's a limited edition anyway.

Versace Versus Time to Relax
I am in LOVE with this scent and I can’t find it anywhere. I got this years ago in TK Maxx for around  £5 and it really is my go to relaxing fragrance if I’m about to do something stressful! I only use it very rarely though as I don’t want it to finish!  Apparantly this is floral too and the description here says it includes freesia, apple tree blossom and hawthorn, as well as avocado, cedar, amber and sandalwood. If anyone spots a bottle of this somewhere, let me know!

Marc Jacobs Blush
I had to buy this on ebay as I couldn’t find it anywhere else, and I think this might be my favourite perfume ever. To me, it smells just like jasmine but it also has some fruity notes such as bergamot, citrus and banana and florals including orange blossom, honeysuckle, freesia, tuberose according to this website.  It’s really rare now but I much prefer this, which is I think Marc Jacobs’ first ever fragrance, to his modern scents.

Herve Leger Avon
This is only a teeny handbag size that I purchased from ebay and although I did love it at first, now I find it a touch too strong and it lingers until the next day! It is described here as a citrus with woody notes, which I confused for musk.

Tommy Girl Summer Cologne 
I’ve had this for years and it’s such a big bottle that it’s never ending! I don’t even know if you can still buy this but here it's described as a floral fragrance. It is a bit too sickly for me and I only wear it in summer, but if anyone wants it let me know and they can have it for a few pounds as it is impossible to get hold of!

Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Girl Summer Cologne
This isn’t even an exhaustive list; for example, I always go back to Lancome Miracle and Davidoff Cool Water, I sometimes throw in some YSL Elle and I’m really keen to try out more high street perfumes such as one from Zara I really like.

Phew! What are your favourite perfumes right now? And which are the ones that you just keep going back to?
