In today’s post I briefly tell you about two Autumn-y perfumes that I am wearing on rotation these days, and a third one which is on my ‘whishlist’ mostly because a girl can dream and all that jazz. Plus it’s a Tom Ford so that covers it. Any excuse to talk about T.F., dontchathink?
1/ This is Her by ZADIG & VOLTAIRE – This has to be the most perfectly cosy, hot chocolate in your hands, fluffy socks & Bridget Jones on, kind of composition. It is in fact WAY more than that, but I will review it very soon so I don’t want to spoil it, I just give it a quick mention! Notes such as Sambac Jasmine, Pink Pepper, Sandalwood, Milky Chestnut Cream and Vanilla. (Mmmmmmm, hashhtag mmmmm...)
2/ Si Eau de Toilette by ARMANI – Quite an interesting scent this one, by far the perfume which has gotten me the most compliments ever, it is a fresh crispy fruity floral that I would wear during the day when the sun is beaming on a chilly Autumn morning. It is a really long wearing EDT with outstanding silage so don’t be fooled by its name. A good choice for both Spring and Autumn, in my opinion, with notes of Blackcurrant, Green Pear, Mandarin and Neroli Oil, Freesia and Musk.
3/ Velvet Orchid by TOM FORD – Sweet Mother of Jaysus! I want to crawl into its bottle and live there…The more I think about this, the more I want it (I usually buy what I want and then my obsession with yet ANOTHER scent can begin – phew)! That being said, the price of Velvet Orchid is sort of putting me off as it is way out of my budget – the 30 ml version is €70! Yuss! The other reason why I haven’t ventured into buying this yet however expensive it may be, is because I noticed the perfume dries on my skin into a synthetic vanilla orchestrated scent and I note it doesn’t last on me that well either – but I need to give it a few more go’s before my final judgement. Either way, Velvet Orchid is insanely delicious! Notes like Honey, Bergamot, Orchid, Hyacinth, Rose Oil, Labdanum and Suede.
