favourite fragrances of the moment

Hello ladies!

I'm sorry I haven't been taking photos with my camera, it's just that it literally died for a couple of days and couldn't take any new pictures thus putting promotional pictures on my blog and not my own. I will be a better blogger from now on i promise :)

So, since September i've noticed that my liking in fragrances has been the same. It is true that i lean towards musky, vanilla and sweet fragrances and stay away from soap smelling perfumes. I am now going to list down all the perfumes that have me sniffing them for good in the last months or so!

all these pictures are courtesy of!

1) Alien by Thierry Muggler

A favourite of mine, perhaps my all time favourite! Its scent is very warm, very mysterious and very feminine. The moment that i wear this i instantly feel more grown up, more glamorous. They say it's 
a night fragrance but i absolutely have no problem wearing this during the day!
 The notes are: Solar Accord, Jasmine Sambac, Green Notes, Cashmeran, Vanilla, Transparent Amber
~My best friend actually told me the other day that this smells a little bit like Tsoureki which is a, Balkan cuisine, sweet bread. I can see where she's coming from as this might be from the Vanilla and Cashmera notes :)

2) Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf

A very feminine, fragrance. It feels sexy, femme fatale and all those bombshell adjectives you can think off! :) You need to smell this( as a polite way to say, you NEED this in your life)
The notes are : Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia, Patchouli.

3) Euphoria by Calvin Klein

Just a little bit smimilar to Flowerbomb although clearly more sporty and lighter Euphoria has been a staple for many women over the years and i believe that it has rightly done so.
The notes : Pomegranate, Persimmon, Green Notes, Black Orchid, Lotus Blossom, Champaca Flower, Liquid Amber, Mahogany Wood, Black Violet, Cream Accord.

4) Angel by Thierry Muggler

The funny thing is that this clean, vanilla scent is actually very similar if not identical with a bathbomb and body lotion that i got from Fresh line( Greek equivalent of Lush) from the Cassandra range. It smells beautiful and i SO wanted them to have a perfume in this range. and then i took a sniff of Angel and oh my good, they smell alike :)
The notes: Bergamot, Hedione, Helional, Honey, Dewberry, Red Berries, Vanilla, Caramel, Patchouli, Chocolate, Coumarin.

5) Tendre Poison by Dior

I hear they discontinued this? Not sure so i'll have to check  my local sephora.
So basically the only way to describe it is that it's a softer version of the original Poison. Smells a bit fruity and musky as well, it's the perfect mixture to wear during the day and during the night :)
The notes: galbanum, mandarin and freesia. The middle notes are: orange, honey and amber and the base of the fragrance is: vanilla, sandalwood and cedarwood.

6)Belle D' Opium by YSL

The funny thing is that when i first sprayed this on my wrists i absoutely hated it and was very worried as to why people seem to love it. Nevertheless when the very top notes are gone, it has a beautiful scent, as seductive and captivating as its name :)
The notes: top notes-mandarin orange, plum, clove, coriander and pepper — mid notes of jasmine, rose, Lily of the Valley, cinnamon and peach—and rounding out the bottom with sweet base notes containing sandalwood, vanilla, cedar wood, myrrh, amber, musk and patchouli.

Sorry for the long post :) I hope you guys enjoyed reading this. What are YOUR favourite fragrances? Are you more of a sweet-scent girl? a fruity one? or maybe a soap-like one? In the comments!!!



  1. Great collection sugar and thanks for sharring!!!
    Angel is just divine!!!!

  2. The exact opposite happened with me and Belle d Opium: I sprayed it on in-store, loved it all day long until it wore off.
    Luckily my mum had a sample, so I tried it again and decided it wasnt for me.. cant explain it, when I first put it on I thought I had found my HG scent!!!


  3. angel is now a classic. a pioneering perfume when it was launched. tendre poison = also very nice. I also like hypnotic poison. very deep and sexy, great for winter

  4. @blushingloves thank you! angel is lovely! But i still prefer Alien above all :) xx

    @Tina lol i guess it's taste xD xx

    @leinti_nti i don't know but i think out of all the fragrances i've listed tendre poison is the most unique as far as scents go. the others may be different but are still in pretty similar note family xx
