A classic gift for the holidays is a fragrance. This week in the Tuesday Ten, I have listed some of my favorite fragrances and how they smell to me. If you’re looking for a quick and timeless gift for anyone, fragrance is always a great option.
My newest fragrance that smells like a hug is Radio Bombay. With base notes of coconut and top notes of cedar, it’s warm and cool at the same time. Everything from D.S. & Durga is such a unique scent that it’s hard to describe. The uniqueness is why I love this brand. I Don’t Know What fragrance enhancer is a bergamot essence that can be worn alone or mixed with another fragrance for an exceptional scent.
Heretic fragrances are plant-based fragrances composed entirely of naturally derived materials. My favorite, by far, is Holi Water. It has notes of lime, cedar, vanilla, and patchouli, and it smells musky, unique, and sensual. Scandalwood is my son’s favorite. He stole my bottle, and I had to buy another. Scandalwood was created in collaboration with Dita Von Teese and smells just as sexy as she is with notes of coriander, sandalwood, and musk.
Byredo Gypsy Water is a unisex fragrance with a nice, clean scent. It’s a light, airy, citrus, and woodsy whisper of a fragrance that is not overpowering.
Tom Ford’s Fucking Fabulous smells exactly like the name. Each time I wear it, someone asks me what I’m wearing. This fragrance smells like Tom Ford’s signature leather with a hint of vanilla. It’s sweet, spicy, and sexy. Another classic fragrance from Tom Ford is Black Orchid. I have been wearing it for years, and it never disappoints. Black Orchid smells like jasmine, gardenia, orange, and glamour.
Jo Malone’s Lime, Basil & Mandarin is a spicy citrus fragrance. A fragrance with notes of orange, lime, basil, and patchouli that last all day.
If you like a campfire and marshmallows, then you will love Mason Martin Margiela’s Replica By The Fireplace. When you wear this, you will smell sweet and spicy, like smoky vanilla.
Heretic Dirty Lemon and Replica Under The Lemon Trees smell very similar and are the fragrance for you if you like a sweet and citrusy smell. Both are very sweet. I personally think the Heretic lasts longer, and I like that it is plant-based and made from naturally derived materials.
When you think of Nest fragrance, you probably think of diffusers for the home, and while those are fabulous, the Wild Poppy perfume is amazing. It’s a floral scent that is made up of jasmine, pear, and raspberry notes. It goes on strong but fades to a lovely and feminine bouquet.
Philosophy’s Pure Grace is the cleanest fragrance I have ever worn. It literally smells like soap and water. If you ever want to smell like you just stepped out of the tub, this will be your favorite scent.
Santal 33 is a unisex scent that represents the smell of the social and fashion elite, according to fashionista. I think the cult classic smells spicy, woodsy, and musky. When I purchased my bottle, I also bought a discovery set of fragrance, which is my favorite way to try a lot of scents from a favorite brand without a huge investment. While I do like Santal 33, I fell in love with Another 13. Le Labo describes it as an addictive potion of ingredients such as jasmine, moss, and ambrette seeds. I agree it is addictive.
