Guest Post | Favourite Fragrances

So today I am delighted to be showing you the first of a few guest posts I have lined up for you lovely lot over the Christmas period whilst I work away (way too hard) to meet my uni deadlines!
This first post is from the lovely Kirsty over on Pretty Little Fashionista
Hey I'm Kirsty and I blog over at Prettylittlefashionista I'm very happy that Jo let me write a guest post for her. Today I'm going to be sharing my favourite fragrances with you.

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle
Although this is only a sample it is one of my favourite perfumes ever. I have nearly finished it and I would be really disappointed but I know my parents have bought me a full size one for Christmas. This perfume contains jasmin, orange blossom and patchouli essence. The perfume isn't overpowering but it does last on the skin all day. I have had many complements when I've worn this perfume. A full sized bottle costs about £39 which is quite a good price considering it is a Lancôme perfume.
Natural collection vanilla body spray
I know this isn't a perfume but I thought I'd include it because I love the smell of it. I love the smell of vanilla any vanilla scented product I have to have so when I saw this in Boots for only £2 I knew I had to get it. As you expect it smells of vanilla it is a really sweet scent that last all day. This is more of a summer scent but I still wear it now even though it is winter.
Body shop cassis rose
I was so disappointed when I came to write this post because I found out that this and one of my other favourites have been discontinued. I don't usually like rose scents as they are usually really overpowering so when I was given this a few years ago I didn't really use it. Early this year I was sorting through my things and found it and I fell in love with the scent. It isn't overpowering and it is just the right amount of rose in it. It isn't too sweet which I find is common with rose scents.
Body shop love etc.
This perfume contains jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood notes however this perfume isn't too floral. This is a perfect everyday perfume the scent lasts but it isn't too overpowering. I think a bottle of this costs £14 which is a really good price for a perfume. I also have the shower gel of this and I love it.
Avon in the clouds
This has also been discontinued which is really disappointing as it is one of my all-time favourite scents. I have had this the longest and I'm really worried about using it up. This is quite a floral scent which lasts all day. I don't know what it contains because I could find very little information on the Internet. I don't know why Avon discontinued it because it is one of my favourite products from them.
Thanks again Kirsty for doing this post for me, it's nice to finally have a fragrance post up on my blog! Make sure you head over and check out Pretty Little Fashionista
So there we have it, hope you all enjoyed my first guest post!

  1. I have the "Love etc" perfume and I love it!

    1. I'd love to try one of the Body Shop perfumes! xx

  2. Cassis rose smells very pleasant. It is different compared to other perfumes. It is quite unique. This fragrance can make a perfect
    perfume gift set, if one is made.

    1. The colour alone makes me want to try it! xx
