Fun Sunday: my perfume collection

Hello my beauties and happy Sunday! Today's post is all about perfumes. I'm not a big perfume lover and by no means a true collector. I don't buy them for myself so everything I have has been gifted to me at some point. My collection is very small. I have a few cheap ones that I didn't even photograph. Excuse the bad lighting in the photos. I live in a loft and I don't have a proper place where the light hits directly. I'm also not very good at describing perfumes but I thought some of you might have fun seeing these. Here we go! 

Carolina Herrera 212 On Ice 

I received this for Christmas so you might have seen it before on my blog. It's a very fresh, floral and citrusy (is that even a word?) perfume. It's perfect for a spring or summer day. I recently discovered that floral scents are my favorites. The packaging of this looks like an ice cube and I thought it was very cool so I kept it. 

Paco Rabanne Black XS

This is a little different from what I'm used to. It's very sweet and fruity, but has some floral notes too. It also has a bit of vanilla scent mixed in. I think this is more of a winter scent and I don't wear it too much. The bottle is so so beautiful! 

Cerruti 1881

Every girl needs something classic in their collection. This has a more powdery smell compared to my other perfumes. It reminds me of Chanel without it being old-lady like. I think I'm gonna use this a lot this spring. 

Calvin Klein Obsession Night

An old favorite! I've had this for a while and you can see I'm almost out of the EDT. This came in a set with a small bottle of EDP and a lotion. Since I'm not a big fan of the roll-on applicator, I didn't use much of the EDP so I still have a lot of it (it only has 10 ml). Another citrus and floral scent, this makes me think of hot summer nights. The name is perfect! 

Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue

I've saved the best for last! This is the newest addition to my collection and what inspired this post. This is the floweriest scent ever invented and I'm just loving it so much. This must be what Audrey Hepburn would wear. It will sure be my absolute favorite this spring!

I hope you liked this post and I'm curious to know, what is your favorite perfume? I hope you all have a great Sunday!


  1. I love floral scent too!!!!:3 and soapy smell i think ! :3 A post about perfume is fun!!I am thinking of doing one too :p

    1. You should! I'm sure your collection is bigger than mine.

  2. I'm a perfume lover also!! I have way too many, smh. 5th Avenue was one of my favorites years ago. It's all gone now though :( *sheds a tear*.

    1. So sorry :( Not sure what I'm gonna do when my bottle is empty. Might be the first time I purchase a perfume for myself.
