My Top Favorite Fragrances for Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer

 Your scent is a special signature that lingers even after you walk away.

A scent can be a way to express, impress, define, or to give yourself that special, comfortable or magical feeling. 

A scent can also bring back memories, of a special moment, a person, a season, or a time in your life. Each scent has it’s own special meaning to you and is therefore very personal.

My personal taste contains mostly fruity-floral; (sweet, fresh, fun and uncomplicated happy scents), and floral-oriental fragrances; (sweet, crisp, gourmand, deep, dark, warm, spicy, sensual, mysterious and intense).
I love fragrances that speak to my imagination, sparkle my dreams and fantasies, light up my spirit and inspire my soul. To me fragrance is like a journey full of magic, emotion, climaxes, rhythm and harmony.

My absolute top favorites so far are:
In Fall/Winter: Kenzo Flower L’elixir, Dior Addict, Lancome La Vie Est Belle, D&G The One,
In Spring/Summer: Guess Girl, Beyonce Heat Rush,  Adidas Fruity Rhythm, Eau de Lacoste Pour Femme, Adidas Born Original and Boss Orange
.. depending on my mood, the occasion or the season.

 My Personal Review on FlowerByKenzo l’Elixir by Kenzo

 

Kenzo Flower L'Elixir Eau de Parfum Spray-2

My absolute No. 1 top favorite fragrance, my secretive feel-good potion. Pure love! 

FlowerByKenzo l’Elixir is a delicious sweet, soft, warm, gourmand, powdery, floral-oriental perfume.
Feminine, intimate, passionate, very sensual, sultry, intoxicating, alluring, cozy, caressing, loving, relaxing, pleasing, comforting and oh so addictive.
A love at first sniff for me of which i just can’t get enough. I totally and immediately fell in love with it.
.

kenzoflowerlelixir-perfume-piramid3FlowerByKenzo l’Elixir opens with fresh mandarin, which quickly fades into an intoxicating soft powdery cloud of sweet raspberries, vanilla and oriental flowers.
When the powdery cloud settles, an addictive smokey/spicy trail comes in, surrounding it’s sensual flowery oriental heart and leading it into a blooming harmonious bouquet which eventually fades out into a very pleasing, comforting, addictive, cozy, creamy, long lasting gourmand skin scent in the end.

It’s like getting showered by a magical cloud of sweet and sensual fairy dust which takes you on a magical journey of dreams and fantasies and eventually leaves you enchanted, caressed, and pleased in the smokey vanilla sweetness of it’s final destination with loving memories of your trip.

My favorite time of year for wearing this perfume is around the Christmas Holidays. It’s  a very cozy sensual fragrance, especially in the fall/winter months.
After an intoxicating start, it’s sultry sweet scent lingers around you all day  but seems to be very subtle to others because it stays close to your skin.

I don’t wear this perfume to make any statement but simply because of how it makes me feel and how it inspires me. It’s sensual, intoxicating, it snuggles, hugs and i love being captured in it’s magic. It’s aroma therapy to me.

It’s a fragrance that gives me an enchanted, intimate, delightful, sensual, warm, relaxed and loving feeling and just simply makes me happy. It warms my heart, sparks my fantasies and inspires my soul and is like wearing my own secretive feel-good potion.
I often apply some on the back of my hand before i go to sleep. I actually always have some on the back of my hand no matter what fragrance i wear.
I am simply in love with this fragrance. It’s my special love, I need it in my life.

FlowerByKenzo l’Elixir is my absolute No. 1 top favorite fragrance, one i wanna keep in my collection forever (and ever). I’ve been building up a stock in case the production will ever discontinue.

FlowerByKenzo l’Elixir has a moderate to eventually soft projection and a long lasting longevity. (The fragrance blooms like a flower for some hours and then slowly fades into a soft long lasting skin scent that responds to body heat that’s still there after 12+ hours).

♥ My Personal Review on Dior Addict by Christian Dior


A True Masterpiece!

dior-addict-bottle

Dior Addict EDP (2014) by Christan Dior

Dior Addict truly honor’s it’s name.

Dior Addict is a highly aromatic, very sensual, deep, warm, spicy, sexy, passionate, mysterious, intoxicating, energetic, intense, seductive, strong, mature, powerful, addictive, complex and remarkable Oriental-Floral fragrance for woman.

It’s a complex fragrance that takes you on a journey of many impressions and should be approached with patience. You have to give it at least 30 minutes to develop and blend with your skin.

Addict opens with a strong sweet spicy oriental aroma.
A sweet, dark, heavy vanilla with a sort of a dark, smoky-spicy cinnamon kind of thread running through it and develops into a beautiful, deep, very sexy, intoxicating aroma of sweet oriental flowers and an addictive, soft, creamy, comforting and very long lasting spicy bourbon vanilla sweetness in the dry-down.
A very powerful, rich, mature and well balanced perfume, and perfect for evening, dating, special events and colder seasons.

I love Addict! It’s a collection must have.
It’s unique, extremely sensual and addictive. It’s like a magic potion, an aphrodisiac and it definitely goes with all-black outfits. It’s a fragrance that gives you confidence. It’s demanding, persistent and encourages you to bold and straightforward actions. Addict will definitely turn heads, draws compliments and even stops people in the streets to ask you what the amazing smell is that you’re wearing.

Dior Addict has a strong projection and an amazing longevity (far over 12 hours) so it’s  very economical in use. Just one spritz is enough to last even until the next day, so be careful to not use too much of it.

One of my favorites!

adidas-born-original-for-her-edp-vapo-30ml-cut.022Born Original is an intoxicating, sweet, fresh, fruity-flowery, slightly oriental, powerful and sultry fragrance.

I really love this fragrance! It reminds me of my favorite EDT from the 80’s-90’s named ‘Goddess’ which i used to wear as my signature scent and got me many compliments and questions what i was wearing. It had a unique scent. People could tell by the scent whether i had been around. more about Goddess at the bottom of this page.
(The only thing i don’t like in this fragrance is the coconut note)

‘Born Original by Adidas’ has, as the name already suggests, that same original, unique, energetic and creative scent which could be a perfect signature scent and suits to wear at any time, day, season or occasion.

This fragrance has a strong projection and a long duration (about 12 hours).

beyonce-heat-rush-100ml-

My Happy Scent!
Definitely one of my top favorites.

Heat Rush is a sweet, fresh, luminous, uplifting, warm, soft and gentle, sexy feminine fragrance.
It smells like the ‘warmth of sunshine’ and feels like ‘watching a promising sunset’ in a bottle. It gives me a happy and at the same time warm, dreamy and relaxed feeling.

While oranges generally have a very strong, sharp and penetrating scent this blend has a unique soft touch without any sharp edges.

Heat Rush is gourmand but gentle, sweet, but not too sweet.
She’s happy, bright and cheerful, yet soft, warm and tender.
She’s a perfect melody with the smell of summer, sharing her joy and warmth in winter. To me it’s the scent of happiness.

I often apply some of this ‘happiness potion’ on the back of my hand before i go to sleep because of it’s soothing, dreamy and happy effect on me. It brings me sweet dreams at night and let’s me wake up in the morning with a smile.

Heat Rush truly is one of my all time favorite fragrances that i can’t get enough of, so i have built up a stock in case the production will ever discontinue.

Heat Rush has a moderate projection and longevity is about 8+ hours.
After the dry down the silage sits close to your skin.

As it was envisioned by designers, The One for women is a fragrance for an exceptional woman who instantly draws attention, not only with her looks, but also with her manners, pose and inner world. This fragrance, like all of the fragrances of D&G house, is a ‘fragrance with character’, special and alluring. Its oriental floral-fruity composition is very warm and sensual with powdery vanilla trace. The color of the fragrance perfectly matches its tone.

♥ My Personal Review on The One Collector’s Edition EDP by Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana The One Collector's Edition, EDP 2My winter scent. For sure one of my favorites!

The One by Dolce & Gabbana is a warm, sweet, spicy, oriental, fruity-floral, powdery, gourmand and sexy  fragrance. The One is mature, has a strong personality and is sensual and full of passion.

This is a fragrance for the colder seasons. The scent makes me think of long and romantic evenings at a warm crackling fireplace in a mountain cabin surrounded by snow .

Though ‘The One’ is a warm, sensual and sweet perfume, i wouldn’t describe it as a typical feminine fragrance.
Because of it’s oriental and spicy aspects and smokey whiff when settling, i think it would smell great on men as well. The fragrance eventually ends in a soft creamy vanilla scent.

It’s one of my favorite fall/winter perfumes of which i keep an extra bottle.

The fragrance has a strong and sweet sultry oriental projection, softened by the powdery notes, and longevity is over 12 hours.

Notes of sweet apple reveal the first, delicate taste of feminine passions, adding a floral, soft and charming heart.

Thumbs Up Double   My Personal Review on Si by Giorgio Armani 

Armani Si

‘Si’ is a delicious, sweet, fruity-floral, gourmand and light woody type of fragrance for women.

Though there is no peach listed as a fragrance note, Si reminds me of the sweet smell of peaches. Si opens youthful and fresh but develops to a more mature scent towards the dry down. It’s a fresh yet warm fragrance and the woody accord gives a mature appearance to the sweet scent of Si.

I love ‘Si’ in summer and at warmer days, but in winter or at colder days the strong peachy opening is less appealing to me for some reason but then i still like the dry down. I prefer to wear Si just in summer.

Si has a strong opening, a moderate projection and longevity is about 8-12 hours.

Thumbs Up2My Personal Review on D&G Anthology L’imperatrice 3 by Dolce & Gabbana 

D&G 3 L'imperatrice Eau de Toilette-

L’imperatrice 3 is a very fresh, fruity and energetic fragrance. Though there are no citrus fruits listed as top notes, on my skin it smells mainly like a mix of (citrus) fruits like orange, peach, red grapefruit, some watermelon and lemon, and musk in the dry down.
It’s a very invigorating and sportive scent which can be worn best at daytime.

L’imperatrice 3 has a strong and sharp radiation when it is just applied, but settles quickly and nicely into a fresh sweetly presence with a moderate longevity (4-6 hours).

Thumbs Up2My Personal Review on DOT by Marc Jacobs 

My picknick scent!

Marc-Jacobs-for-Women-dot-3.4-ozThis fragrance reminds me of nature, the sweet smell of spring and a surprisingly resemblance to the clean smell of fresh cut grass after a summer rain.

It makes me think of when i was a child and was playing outside, collecting lady bugs to study in a jar filled with grass. It has that same smell, only better ofcourse and sweeter, like memories in a bottle.

At the first few sniffs i wasn’t really sure if i liked the fragrance, my first attraction was to the bottle because i’ve always loved lady bugs. But the more i smelled it, the more i loved it, understood it, and appreciated it for it’s uniqueness .
It’s a different yet refreshing scent and brought back sweet childhood memories of outside activities.

It’s a unique, original, creative, soft, sweet, bright, fresh and clean scent which to me seems to fit best at occasions of outside activities like a family pick-nick, a camping vacation, a day at the park, or a walk along the beach on a Sunday morning.

I certainly understand the choice of the lady bug bottle design, to me it fits the fragrance perfectly and is besides an eye catcher also a beautiful and lovely collector’s item to keep.

Thumbs Up Down  My Personal Review on Versace Woman by Versace

One of my dislikes.

versace_woman_eau_de_parfum

Although Versace Woman is a very fresh, light, lovely, flowery,   feminine and qualitative perfume, there is something about it that is too overwhelming, too intense and too loud for me, and unfortunately gives me a headache. I have tried washing it off with a sponge and lots of soap and water, but couldn’t get it off my skin. The fragrance was still surprisingly present after a shower the next day.

For a light perfume, this perfume has an enormous and intense projection (at least on my skin) and lasts very long (over 12 hours), so be careful with the amount of use.

If you like this fragrance, you will have a nice, strong, qualitative and long lasting perfume.

Katy Perry’s third fragrance and the first one done in cooperation with Coty. The scent is called Killer Queen by the song written by Freddie Mercury, and apparently it is totally different from its two predecessors.

Killer Queen has been in my vocabulary since I was 15, because of the song ‘Killer Queen’ by Queen,” said Perry to wwd. “Freddie Mercury painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be. She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she walked in. I named my company Killer Queen after those lyrics. I feel like, after all this time, it was appropriate to use that name in association with something I did. I feel like I’m falling, finally, into that woman Freddie painted.”

Announced as a playful, sophisticated, powerful, edgy and delicious fragrance, it reflects the rebellious spirit of the singer. Its creation is signed by Laurent Le Guernec of IFF. Top notes include wild berries, dark plum and bergamot accords. The main note of the heart is velvety red flower (Celosia), but there are also Sambac jasmine and rainbow plumeria. The base contains cashmere, patchouli and liquid praline.

Thumbs Up2My Personal Review on Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears

britney-spears-midnight-fantasy-woman-eau-de-parfum

Midnight Fantasy is a very gourmand, fruity, bitter sweet and very girlish type of perfume.

Although the name suggests differently, i find it more a fragrance to wear at daytime, especially on sunny days.

The name of the perfume is promising yet rather misleading. The ‘Midnight Fantasies’ i get are sweet dreams of Peter Pan and Tinker Bell, but nonetheless it’s a lovely fragrance, it smells like fresh and juicy raspberries, which is one of my favorite fragrance notes.

The fragrance has a moderate projection and longevity  is 6-8 hours)

One of my dislikes.

Tommy Hilfinger Tommy Girl

Tommy Girl is a very fresh, fruity and energetic daytime fragrance for women.

Although it’s a lovely fragrance, there is something about this scent which opposes me. I experience the same with Versace Women.
Both perfumes contain fragrance notes that i love, but there’s one thing they have in common. Both have cedar in the composition so i think it’s the combination with cedar. I guess i am not a big fan of predominant cedar notes.

Goddess EDT, General Cosmetics – discontinued (80’s)    Thumbs Up Double

goddess-by-general-cosmetics-nb-2-3

Goddess Edt by General Cosmetics 30 ml (Eighties) -Discontinued-

Goddess’ Eau de Toilette, by General Cosmetics,  was my all time favorite fragrance and signature scent from the 80’s to the late 90’s, then it got discontinued and i have been looking for it ever since.
.
Goddess was a low budget EDT that could be bought at most drugstores in the Netherlands (Etos, Kruidvat, DA, etc) and came in a 30ml and 60ml transparent glass bottle with curved lines and a matching transparent plastic cap. The fluid itself had a yellow golden color.
The price was under fl 10,00 (guldens/florin’s at that time).

Goddess EDT was discontinued somewhere in the late nineties and i have been looking for it ever since. It was  a fresh energetic, fruity-flowery, slightly oriental type of fragrance (from what i remember), with similarities to that of the opening scent of Born Original by Adidas.

I have no idea who the nose was behind Goddess or what the fragrance notes were.  I remember it was sharp, fruity, fresh (kind of smelled a bit like apple juice) and a bit spicy. There might also have been peach in it (because i loved peach scents at that time). I believe it also had citrus in the top and white flower notes in the heart and it had a very strong silage.
I have combed the internet in my search to find it but without any luck so far.

kenzo-flower-lelixir-2015

Notes: …. ?

Possible notes that might have been in there (?): Bergamot, mandarin, orange or grapefruit, apple or apple blossom, peach, pineapple, orange blossom, rose, jasmine, iris, vanilla,  ginger, amber, ceder, sandalwood, musk 

(The above notes might be completely off because it’s way too long ago to remember and i didn’t know anything about notes back then so i’m just guessing, but i would love to smell Goddess again)

If anyone remembers any info like the perfumer, the notes, release year and year it was discontinued, or even still has a filled or empty bottle, please contact me or leave a comment, i would be forever thankful!!

I really loved this fragrance, it was part of me and of a very significant part of my life.

Other fragances that were popular among teens and available in drugstores in the Netherlands around that time were Beverly Hills 90210, Lou lou by Cacharel, Anais anais by Cacharel, Vanderbilt by Gloria Vanderbilt, Gabriela Sabatini, Samba, Naf Naf, United Colors of Benetton, Magic Girl (Papaya flirt, Cherry kiss and Lemon touch), Miss Sporty, Chipie, etc 

UPDATE : 4 September 2017

zomer-care-e1500818559830The smell of Goddess is almost identical as the fragrance of the limited edition of Andrelon Shampoo and Conditioner ‘Summer Care’!

I have been looking up the ingredients to see if i could trace back the notes used for the fragrance of the shampoo and conditioner.

They really are lovely fragrances but for some reason i’m overly sensitive to some ingredients in these fragrances which make my stomach turn. They make me feel nauseous and/or give me a headache.  They all have a similar repulsive kind of scent to me, but i can’t figure out what ingredient it is. Based on the notes i should like them, and although i find them lovely, they’re not my cup of tea.
