Perfume Collection

The weekend is so close, I can smell it!  Or maybe that's just my DKNY Pure?  I don't know what a 'normal' number of perfumes to have in rotation at any given time is, but my current collection is the largest I've ever had:
Victoria's Secret Love Spell Fragrance Mist (freebie), Parlez-Moi d'Amour by John Galliano (was this ever released in the U.S.? I ordered it off eBay from the U.K.), Dior Miss Dior Cherie, Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Hair Mist, Harajuku Lovers Super G, Harajuku Lovers Mermaid G, Benefit So Hooked on Carmella (full size and mini), Benefit Ring My Bella, Versace Bright Crystal mini, Paco Rabanne Lady Million mini, pureDKNY mini rollerball, Stila Creme Bouquet rollerball, Mary Kay Exotic Passionfruit (gift from parents-in-law)

Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Collection Love, Angel, Music, Baby, and G
Do you have any of these?  Victoria's Secret Love Spell is cloyingly peachy, and Parlez-Moi d'Amour is cloyingly blueberry-y.  I have to be careful with these because it's easy to go overboard and then I just feel nauseous!  Ring My Bella is a lightly-floral grapefruit scent to me. Super G is also strongly fruity, but fades quickly. I just love fresh and fruity scents like these!  I didn't like Creme Bouquet by Stila originally, but it has grown on me a lot.
I think my favorite of the bunch is a tie... Mermaid G is long-lasting, subtle and clean.  So Hooked On Carmella is my other fave because it is sweet but not overly so, and just a little sexy.  My husband likes it a lot! 

He also loved when I wore Guerlain Insolence (I went through TWO 1 oz. bottles in a year! There were too many other fragrances I wanted to try at the time, including the original lineup of Harajuku Lovers Fragrances -I love original G and Angel- so I haven't re-purchased yet, but I'd love to go back to its young, fresh, raspberry goodness!)  The other perfumes on my wishlist currently are Harajuku Lovers Jingle G (of course), and Burberry Brit Sheer (smells amazing, I just can't justify buying it while I own all of the above!). 

What perfumes are in your current rotation?  What past loves are you longing to buy again?  And what new scents are on your wish list?


  1. Oh wowwwww! That is a real collection you've got there! When I was younger I used to buy a lot of perfumes, but nowadays I'm not in the habit of wearing perfume on a daily basis so I only have Chanel No 5 and Bond No 9 Little Italy.

  2. Ahh I've wanted Chanel No 5 because it's so cool how they use special roses grown in an exclusive place in France...

  5. I'm SO jealous of your Miss Dior Cherie! That's on my wishlist along with Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy! :) Lady Million is my newest perfume and I love it :)

  6. Hi Yu :) I had to get Miss Dior Cherie after Vivianna raved about it. The bottle is so me, too <3 It's a perfect scent for any occasion. Lady Million is what I wear to feel fancy. I'll check out Viva La Juicy, thanks for the rec!

  9. Your perfume collection is very cute and I have all the Harajuku Lovers perfume in a sample tube and they all smell lovely but I love the Angel one. They actually have it at Nordstrom Rack for $23.00 full size. I was planning to pick it up but never had the chance.

  10. Yeah, Angel is great! I got it on ebay for a Gold Box discount a couple years ago but used it up :)
