Nilo’s Valentines Day Fragrance Picks
You guys know my obsession with fragrances, and Valentines is the perfect time to add some new scents to your own collection. Whether it’s a gift for someone else or a treat for yourself these fragrances are ones to check out next time you’re out shopping.
Tom Ford Fluer De Portofino
Tom Ford Fluer De Portofino something a little different to TF scents. It’s more feminine, less spicy and more gentle which I LOVE about it. Don’t get me wrong I still love Tom Fords stronger scents but this one makes me feel like I’m walking through a garden full of jasmine. It’s truly a beautiful perfume! Vibrant. Carefree. Captivating.
Notes: Sicilian Lemon, Bigarade Leaf Absolute, Violet Leaf Absolute Orpur, White Acacia Accord, Jasmine Grandiforum Concrete, Acacia Honey Accord.
Victoria Secret Bombshell
I lovvve this scent and have gotten pretty much all my friends and female family members hooked onto it. You can wear this fragrance day or evening, all day everyday! It’s a fresh,vanilla & fruity fragrance. Reminds of me of a “just stepped out of the shower” type of scent. It doesn’t last as long as some of the other fragrances I love, but that’s okay. I keep a roller ball size in my purse and reapply after a few hours if I need it. 🙂
Fun fact: Bombshell Eau de Parfum had a study done on it and it repels mosquitoes “quite effectively” for two hours after it was applied!
Notes: Purple passion fruit, Shangri-la peony and vanilla orchid
Jo Malone London Orris & Sandlewood
You can never go wrong with a Jo Malone Fragrance. Their new Orris & Sandalwood is a captivating scent that reminds you of a Tuscan hillside with irises in bloom. The soft warm base of amber and sandalwood give it a smooth, gently spicy sensuality that sits on the skin perfectly. And it lasts and last. I sprayed this on my skin yesterday morning and I could still detect it when I went to bed last night. I love that. There’s nothing like a truly lasting fragrance.
Notes: Violet, Orris, Sandalwood
I have been using this scent for years, and it never gets old. Classic, soothing and turns heads everywhere you go. I’ve repurchased this one many times, and its one that will always remain in my collection.
Notes: Pink pepper, citron, pineapple, hyacinth, jasmine, iris, patchouli, vetiver, white musk, vanilla
YSL Supreme Bouquet
OMG this scent was love at first smell for me! Supreme Bouquet is a creamy, floral and luxurious scent. It’s very feminine and classy but stands out. It’s a great scent for jasmine lovers and I just love the mixture of notes in this one. It lasts FOREVER, so a little goes a long long way. It’s a bit stronger at first but once it settles it becomes more playful and close to a summer scent. LOVE!
Notes: jasmine, ylang-ylang, patchouli and amber
Versace Bright Crystal
The beauty about this scent it’s how light it is. Smells amazing but its a clean, soft scent that you can wear without being in anyones face. It’s so refreshing, really lifts up my mood. Tho it is a soft scent, don’t let that fool you its very long long lasting. Be warned, if you smell it most likely you’ll want to buy it 🙂 It’s something everyone would love.
Notes: Iced Accord, Yuzu, Pomegranate, Peony, Magnolia, Lotus Flower, Acajou, Vegetal Amber, Musk.
Michael Kors White Luminous Gold
Pear, jasmine and amber mix together beautifully to create a sweet, warm and intoxicating scent. It’s stronger when you first apply it but after it settles its so intoxicating. It lasts forever, so I think that’s why its stronger at first before the scent really blossoms on your skin. You’ll definitely get asked what your wearing with this one.
Notes: Pear, Jasmine, Amber.
Tom Ford Velvet Orchid
Velvet Orchid is a luxurious rich scent. I love how it’s a stronger scent but toned down spice, more floral with a blend of vanilla. Its a feminine fragrance which I prefer to wear in the evenings.
Notes: Orange Blossom, Hyacinth, Jonquil, Cattleya Leopoldii Orchid, Suede Accord, Vanilla Tincture.
Burberry Beat I’ve had for a while, but still love it. Old is Gold :). It’s a warm scent that uplifts my mood which is why I love it. I like wearing it in spring or cooler weather because of the warmth in the fragrance. It has a very pleasing fresh fruity scent that lasts good amount of time on your skin to feel refreshed all day long. Soft, Sweet with a touch of pepper.
Notes: Bergamot, Caradmom, Pink Pepper, Ceylon Tea, Iris, Bluebell, White Musk, Vetiver, Cedarwood
Modern Muse Chic
Modern Muse Chic grew on me. I really like it a lot. It’ss different then any of the other fragrances I own. It’s lighter then the original Modern Muse, very light and not too flowery. The beauty of this fragrance is how to smells on your skin after a few hours.
Notes: Floral Accord, Ebony Woods Accord, Jasmine Sambac China Absolute, Tuberose, Suede Musk, Patchouli.
