Chloé Signature EDP For Christmas

Chloe Perfume Gift Ideas

Chloe Perfume Gift Ideas

As I get older I recognise the importance of quality over quantity and having a few treasured things. I extend that way of thinking to my Christmas shopping and have started to buy people one thoughtful, special gift, instead of lots of things that they either won’t use or want. This year I have asked my closest friends & family to let me know what they’d most like receive. I find that fragrance is one thing that most people (including myself) love to receive, there is something lovely about having your favourite perfume back in your life, and if you’re like me I find it hard to justify buying it for myself throughout the year so Christmas is that perfect excuse to give the gift of perfume.

One classic scent that is top of my Mum’s Christmas List is Chloé Signature EDP my Mum has worn this perfume for years and when I smell it on other people it instantly reminds me of her. I know she will be excited to find this under the tree this year.

Chloe EDP is a beautiful warm, floral, fresh scent which has a modern sophisticated feel to it. Its mix of floral, fruity and warming woody notes work so well layered together and they settle into a beautiful, easy to wear, everyday scent that has a touch of class about it. The notes of Rose are complemented so well by the sweetness of the Litchi so if you’re worried about this fragrance having a powdery floral scent, don’t be! It is the complete opposite.

The scent is strong but not at all overpowering and it has serious staying power. I would also say this is a perfume that works well during the day but is also really pretty as an evening scent, It is very versatile.

Christmas Gifting with Fragrance Direct

The bottle is such a classic design, quite a chunky, weighty glass bottle but very much timeless and pretty. I would say it’s quite understated. The simple ribbon detail gives it a delicate feminine feel. I might have to treat myself to a bottle for Christmas too, writing this review has reminded me just how much I love this fragrance too.

What fragrance is top of your Christmas List this year? Have you ever tried any of the Chloé scents?

This Signature Chloe EDP is available from Fragrance Direct in varying sizes and you can also get it as part of a gift set.

Marc Jacobs Daisy for Christmas

Perfume Gift Ideas

Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume

As I get older I always say to family & friends “let’s not do gifts this year lets just get together and enjoy a meal and a few drinks”. I especially love Christmas for giving us so many excuses to spend time together and it makes me so grateful for all the amazing people I have in my life. That being said it is nice to have something under the tree to open on Christmas morning even if it just one lovely gift, and my husband always gets the most thoughtful presents for me. I like to ask for something special, something I don’t often buy myself and for me that is perfume.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Fragrance

A fragrance for me is such a treat and that’s what makes it the perfect gift to both give and receive. There are so many incredible scents and this year I wanted to add back to my collection a scent that I used to wear a lot a few years ago. We all have that one perfume which never gets old and that for me is Marc Jacobs Daisy. It is such an iconic scent and the bottle is instantly recognisable with the cap adorned with pretty daisies, I haven’t owned it for so long but I’m thrilled to have it for 2018.

It is beautiful, timeless fragrance and one that can be worn by all ages. It is such a mix of fruity, floral and fresh notes that it never smells overpowering of too intense. It reminds me of so many happy moments, birthdays, holidays and getting my job at RBS. It has been a favourite of mine for so long and it was my Mum that first introduced me to it and she still wears it too, so we have the same great taste in perfume.

Updating My Perfume Collection

Accessorize Lovelily Perfume-

I don’t actually own too many perfumes, I try to keep my collection small and actually use them before they pass their best. Fragrance can quite often be very expensive and often that can lead you to only using them sparingly or for special occasions. I like to use my perfumes everyday and so it is nice when you can have a nice mix of good quality affordable options as well as more luxe options too.

I want to introduce you to, two affordable scents from two very well known high street shops, both perfumes have slotted well into my collection and have been seeing a lot of use!

Accessorize Lovelily Fragrance

Affordable Fragrance Monsoon Rose Gold

Accessorize Love Lily 

I used to use Accessorize makeup all the time and always loved the fun, feminine packaging, so I was excited to try their signature scent. This Love Lily fragrance would make a lovely everyday scent, it is nicely subtle and settles to wear for quite a few hours before the need to reapply. It is incredible value for money and the bottle is beautiful.

The perfume comes in a pretty hexagonal bottle, it is quite weighty and is finished with a pink floral stopper. Out of the two perfumes this does have more of a youthful feel, I think it is because the scent is fruity and sweet. It features notes of raspberry, orange, jasmine and sweet vanilla.

If you enjoy scents that are juicy, fresh and fairly sweet you need to add this to your collection. Don’t think this is going to be sickly sweet because it is not at all, the zesty fruit and floral jasmine help to give it a twist.

Beautiful Affordable Perfume

Monsoon Rose Gold Fragrance

Monsoon Rose Gold

The Monsoon Rose Gold is very different from the Accessorize Love Lily. The bottle is more understated and elegant and the scent is sophisticated and sexy. That is how I have justified keeping both – this one makes a beautiful evening scent. So I now have new scents for both day & night.

What I like about the Rose Gold fragrance is that is has more of a warm, sexy scent and neroli and musk are two of my favourite notes. They add a masculine feel. These notes work so well alongside the rose, lemon and vanilla which give it that zesty, sweet twist.

Top notes of sparkling lemon, soft fruit and ozonic scents

Heart notes of velvety rose, tuberose, neroli and cyclamen

Base notes of Eastern woods, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber

Once it has settled down it smells beautiful, not too heavy but it lasts well on me. I can still smell it on my scarf 4 days after I’d sprayed it.

Both scents are affordable are very pretty. They’re very different in terms of scent and I do feel like the Accessorize Love Lily would be perfect for late teens early 20’s. The Monsoon Rose Gold has a slightly more romantic, sophisticated feel but that being said I have enjoyed them both.

Perfume is down to personal taste & I always recommend trying them out for yourself. So if you get chance to pop into a Monsoon or Accessorize store give them a whirl and let me know your thoughts.

Monsoon Rose Gold is £24 for 30ml, or £35 for 100ml

Accessorize Love Lily is £19 for 74ml
