Viktor & Rolf Bon Bon Spring/Summer

The original Viktor & Rolf Bon Bon is incredibly iconic that's loved by millions of women. They've just launched a summer edition for 2017, and although we're not getting much sun here in the UK- this interpretation of the original is actually very good. 

Saturday

Jimmy Choo L'Eau fragrance

Jimmy Choo launched their new fragrance L'Eau earlier this year, and is a sister scent to their debut one in 2011. It's light and summery, and vibrant as soon as it's sprayed. There's pretty much zero waiting time to discover the nature of the fragrance. 

Thursday

Paco Rabanne 1 Million Prive

One Million has been an iconic fragrance for years, and there's not one guy I know who isn't a fan. I first discovered it fragrance when I was 16 and Paco Rabanne were pushing for sales in Debenhams. Although it was a men's fragrance, I loved it and recommended it to all of my male friends who then went on to try it out for themselves. 

Paco Rabanne have recently launched an interpretation of the popular fragrance, called 1 Million Prive and I usually find that follow-up fragrances are never as good as the originals but this one definitely is. Paco Rabanne really know how to create a fragrance! 

Saturday

YSL Black Opium Floral Shock and The Shock Mascara

YSL have just launched a brand new fragrance and mascara as a duo- Black Opium Floral Shock and The Shock mascara. This is the first time that YSL have done a make up and fragrance co-launch, and it's a good one. 

Wednesday

Elie Saab fragrance

I was a big fan of Elie Saab's Rose Couture fragrance that launched earlier this year, so I was excited to find out whether the original fragrance (launched in 2011) is just as lovely. And it did not disappoint at all! 

Thursday

Crush by Rihanna

In my opinion, Britney and Rihanna both rule the celebrity fragrance world. They launch lovely, unique fragrances that remain staples for many women (think Reb'l Fleur by Rihanna and Fantasy by Britney). A couple of months ago, Rihanna launched her 7th fragrance, Crush- a sister fragrance to last year's RiRi. 

Lacoste Pour Elle Elegant

A few months ago, Lacoste launched a trio collection of fragrances: Pour Elle Natural, Pour Elle Elegant, and Pour Elegant Sparkling. Here, I review the Elegant. 

Pour Elle Elegant is a fresh floral fragrance with musky tones and makes a fantastic day perfume as it's subtle and not overpowering. Lacoste are great for their fresh, light fragrances, and they haven't disappointed with this one. 

Tuesday

Elie Saab Rose Couture

Rose-centered fragrances tend to be quite sweet and sickly, but not Elie Saab Rose Couture. They've somehow managed to make a Rose fragrance with Vanilla that's subtle, classy, and not at all powdery.

DKNY Be Electric collection

I look forward to DKNY's Limited Edition collections every Spring. The Dreamsicle fragrance from the Sorbet collection last year is my absolute favourite DKNY fragrance to date, and I'm currently trying to save as much of it as I can! This year, DKNY have launched a really fun collection- Be Electric, and aren't the bottles just amazing?! They're incredibly photogenic and I love the bright summery colours. 



As always with DKNY collections, there are three new fragrances in the famous apple shaped bottles; Citrus Pulse (Orange), Bright Crush (Yellow) and Loving Glow (Pink). Obviously not everyone will purchase all three, (they are priced at £37 each) but I think there is something for everyone in the range as the scents are quite different from each other. At the moment, my favourite is Loving Glow but I'm also leaning towards Citrus Pulse too. They're all unique in their own way. Here are my thoughts on all three:

Monday

BOSS The Scent

This is Hugo Boss' biggest male fragrance launch in a long time- and it's a very good one. BOSS The Scent is a masculine scent that's inspired by the art of male seduction and confidence, and pays tribute to the BOSS man's personal achievements rather than his professional. Nice. 
For the past couple of years, Hugo Boss have been launching fragrances that were almost like brothers to the original BOSS Bottled. BOSS The Scent is completely different, and this is why it's already an incredibly popular scent. Every guy I've tested it on has nothing but positive to say about it.

Saturday

Gucci Bamboo

Gucci launched their new fragrance, Bamboo in August this year and it's received quite the attention, particularly as there are many mixed reviews out there on the scent. Plus, the gorgeous Gal Gadot is the ambassador for the fragrance.

Tuesday

Jimmy Choo Illicit

Jimmy Choo always launch amazing fragrances and the recently launched Illicit is definitely no exception. The brand are clearly aiming at the younger market by creating a fun and edgy fragrance. Personally, I don't think Jimmy Choo need to do this as so many young girls I know are fans of their fragrances. 

Monday

007 SEVEN fragrance

SPECTRE is released today in cinemas and I am SO excited to go and see it! I'm such a big Bond fan and have been waiting for the new film for three years. In celebration of the film's release, I bring to you a review of the new 007 SEVEN fragrance that recently launched nationwide.

Wednesday

DKNY Be Desired

There's always a special place in my heart for a DKNY fragrance- I still own some of the limited edition ones from years ago. Who remembers the Candy Apples and Hearts The World fragrances? I also fell in love with the gorgeous DKNY Dreamsicle fragrance that launched earlier this year- I'm currently being stingy with it so it doesn't run out. Such a shame it was limited edition! 
Anyway, DKNY have just launched a new fragrance in the form of the brand's famous apple bottle, called Be Desired. DKNY usually launch their apple fragrances in trios so I was intrigued to find out the story behind the new scent, and obviously what it smells like. 

Tuesday

RiRi by Rihanna

Rihanna's fragrance press office sent me a beautiful parcel a few weeks ago containing the new RiRi fragrance. It's her 5th fragrance and she had been hinting at it for over a year- I love Rihanna to bits and I was so excited. Although I review a lot of celebrity fragrances, it's very rare for me to discover one that's unique and I've fallen in love with. 

Thursday

BOSS Bottled Oud

Hugo Boss are forever building on the success of the popular BOSS Bottled fragrance by launching re-interpretations of it, this time as an Oud based scent. BOSS Bottled Oud is a warm, spicy fragrance that's the epitome of modern masculinity. 

Tuesday

Michael Kors Gold Fragrance Collection

Michael Kors has just launched a new selection of fragrances called the Gold Collection, composed of three scents which were all carefully chosen for the Michael Kors woman. 

I'm a huge lover of MK handbags and watches particularly because they have that special hint of bling to them, but Michael Kors has clearly gone the extra mile with these new fragrances. Obviously, packaging isn't everything but oh my goodness just look at these! 

Wednesday

Paco Rabanne Olympea

It's so nice to see something new from Paco Rabanne- their last biggest women's fragrance launch was Lady Million, and that was years ago! I was beginning to think that Paco Rabanne had lost their spark, until now of course... 

Inspired by Greek Goddesses, Olympea takes you on a venture of victory and championship through a sweet floral scent. The warm fragrance opens up with a sweet and creamy burst of top notes consisting of Salty Vanilla Accord. The journey then continues by developing into the Jasmine and Gingerlily heart, finally settling to a dry down of Ambregris, Bois De Cachmire Ambregris, and Cashmere Wood lingering on the skin. 

Sunday

BOSS Runway Edition Fragrances

Before Nuit launched in 2012, Hugo Boss wouldn't have ever crossed my mind when thinking of one of my favourite fragrance brands. 

Nuit, Jour and Ma Vie changed everything for the BOSS Woman fragrance brand, making it more feminine, and sophisticated. For me, BOSS Woman Orange just wasn't cutting it. So it's great that the fragrance trio are being celebrated by their re-launch as Runway Edition fragrances this month. The new editions have three statement looks inspired by Jason Wu on the bottles and packaging.

Ghost Girl

I was invited to the Ghost fragrance party on Wednesday at the Holborn Hoxton Hotel, where they were launching their latest fragrance, Ghost Girl. It was a really fun event with Ghost themed cocktails, pick 'n' mix, light-up candy floss, and even a fortune teller (who very scarily, knew quite a lot about me!).
