My perfume collection isn't very large; I think I must be very choosy when it comes to scents. I also don't tend to change my perfume with the seasons like most people do. If I like a scent, I'll wear it whatever time of year it is! My two favourite all time perfumes are Boudoir by Vivienne Westwood which is gorgeous for night time & Eternity by Calvin Klein that I've been wearing for 7 or 8 years now.
I saw Boudoir in TK Maxx for about £17 and I just had to have it. I'd never smelt it before so I must admit that I bought it because it was Vivienne Westwood. Luckily my gamble paid off and I adore the scent. I'm rubbish at describing smells but I like it because it's a very sexy, feminine & grown up kind of scent. While I'm not sure many people my age would like or wear it, it's my go to scent for the night time & I've had many compliments on it! Vivienne Westwood online describe it as having top notes of vibernum, bergamot & mandarine with heart notes of red English roses & garden evening notes of tobacco flowers and heliotrope. Everything, even down to the packaging, is gorgeous and the best part for me is that it hasn't been tested on animals!
I've been wearing Calvin Klein Eternity since I was about 14 & it has become my signature daytime scent. It's described as being a feminine scent with white lily, white florals, marigold & mandarin accompanied by amber and sandalwood. I rather like the tagline for the fragrance "As long as intimacy goes on, so will Eternity" I wonder how long it took someone to come up with that gem? To me, this is a really fresh fragrance that I always get comments on telling me how much it suits me, yay! The only negative for me is that I'm unsure whether it has been tested on animals. Peta's compassionate shopping guide says that it hasn't but every other site I've seen says that it has. If anyone can shed some light on this for me I'd be very grateful.
What are your favourite perfumes at the moment? If you have any recommendations of perfumes that haven't been tested on animals I'd love to hear them!
