Versace by day, Jean Paul Gaultier at night
In case you were wondering, I’m not referring to a designer selection of clothing in my wardrobe.
I’m referring to the only designer items that my lifestyle and income can justify – perfume.
Very much down to individual taste, our perfume preference is all dependent on what our scent receptors consider to be an appealing smell.
Versace ‘Bright Crystal’
With a fusion of pomegranate, lotus, amber musk and more, the floral scent to this fragrance is remarkably pleasant. Retailing at roughly £30 per 30ml, this is a great go-to if you require a fresh scent for multiple spritzing throughout the working day.
Jean Paul Gaultier ‘Classique Eau De Toilette’
My all-time favourite perfume; a scent that lasts on my skin and clothing for hours and always gains compliments, has got to be the Jean Paul Gaultier ‘Classique Eau De Toilette’ – boasting a (slightly expensive) £50 per 50ml RRP.
In all honesty, I would wear this perfume all day everyday if it wasn’t for the retail price. Acknowledged for its ‘sensual’ scent, this sweet and subtle rose-like scent is a blend of vanilla orchid, sandalwood, tonka bean, rum and rose – an unlikely combination. Don’t be deterred by the ‘Eau De Toilette’ label; although diluted, this scent is extremely long-lasting.
