With Valentine's Day coming up in less than two weeks time (where did January go?!) I thought I'd share a few of my favourite fragrances and the ones at the top of my wishlist in case anyone needs inspiration of what to hint to their partner for. I'll admit now that I'm terrible at describing scents but I'd say these all fall under the 'floral', 'fruity' or 'sweet' categories.

My two all-time favourites have to be Miss Dior and Insolence by Guerlain. Both smell so lovely and have the best lasting power - I can still smell both of them on my clothes weeks after I put them on! However these are definitely on the pricey side so if you're looking for something a bit more reasonable then I'd recommend Vera Wang Lovestruck or Next Just Pink. You can get 100ml of Lovestruck on Amazon for just £29.78 (compare that to 100ml of Miss Dior which is around £90!). The floral bottle would make a perfect Valentine's present and even though it is inexpensive, the scent is by no means cheap.

Next Just Pink is also a great alternative if you're on a budget. At only £12 for a 75ml bottle it is a great perfume for everyday use. It has a very pretty scent and I think the bottle is also really good considering the price - I love the little bow on the top!

 Hope this helps!


  1. I love Marc Jacobs Lola. It's my favourite after V&R Flowerbomb and Calvin Klein Euphoria..

    1. Ahh I'm desperate to buy Flowerbomb! I forgot to include it on here but I tested it before Christmas and it smells so good! x

  2. I've only tried Lola Rose and Just Pink out of this little lot! Is quite like to give the DKNY one a sniff. ;)
