Notation: The Latest Perfume Obsessions

Hey all! Today's post will be brief because I just want to show you guys what fragrances I have been using & loving lately.

To start, the light scents. 

Chloe by Chloe Eau de Parfum

Elizabeth & James Nirvana White

Commodity Gold

Maison Margiela Replica: Beach Walk

The Chloe & Nirvana White perfumes I have had forever! Both are very feminine, clean, floral scents that linger but are not overwhelming. I remember wearing these to my job interviews during my undergrad days. Commodity Gold is a warm vanilla scent that I've mentioned in my previous perfume post. I like to spritz this one on when I'm not feeling too adventurous with my fragrances because I find the vanilla notes to be very comforting. I actually got a sample pack of Maison Margiela Replica fragrances in a past Sephora order just so I could try Beach Walk. It's an amazing summery scent that gives off a light hint of coconut and a warm sea breeze. For that reason, Beach Walk has been on my list of things to buy at Sephora for quite some time. 

Next, my main squeeze: Byredo.

Not only does the brand name just roll off the tongue, the perfumes are also extremely unique. They have this tang & spice to them that I just can't get enough of. My favorite scents are: Mojave Ghost, Bal D'Afrique, Gypsy Water, Unnamed, & Rose of No Man's Land--in that order. I have these perfumes on rotation almost everyday. Hopefully I will be able to start building my collection of the full-sized bottles soon. Byredo is definitely worth the investment.

The end, warmth. 

The Body Shop Coconut Eau de Toilette

Le Labo Rose 31

I picked up the Coconut Eau de Toilette from the Body Shop on a whim when I was picking up a gift for my cousins. I'm really obsessed with all things coconut and never thought to try a perfume! It's a blend of coconut & a subtle, sweet tropical scent that makes you want to take a trip to the beach. The scent doesn't last very long but I actually prefer that because then I never get sick of the smell. Le Labo's Rose 31 is a classic amongst Le Labo fans for a reason. It's fruity & floral yet has this smokiness to it that makes the perfume really interesting. The scent is pretty intoxicating, but in a good way.

What perfumes do you currently have on rotation?

Until next time, Megan.
