Updated Fragrance Collection (2013) Part 1

Hullo Lovely Ladies! 

My first ever blog post was a perfume collection post, a lot more fragrances have been added to my collection in the last year so I thought I'd update it! 

I keep most of my perfumes in boxes away from sunlight. 

Except my 5 favourite which are on display, I'll be talking about them in Part 2!

A light and fresh fragrance, great to wear on a daily basis. 

2)      Ed Hardy Love Kills Slowly EDP
Group -Floral Fruity
Launched -2008
Top - Grapefruit and Mango

One of the best fruity perfumes I've ever smelt. I've gone through nearly the whole bottle this last year.

Smells lovely and for the price you can't go wrong! 

6) NEXT - Milan 
Group - Fruity Floral 
Luanched - 2012

Top – Celmentine, Honey, Ginger, Pear, Almond, bitter orange and Artemisia.

Bought it on my 20th Birthday, It's one of my only strong floral's but it's very nice. One I would wear to weddings. 

15)      Lancome Tresor Midnight Rose
Group - Floral Woody Musk
Launched – 2011
Top – Rose, Raspberry,

Top -Mangosteen, Pear and Nectarine
Middle - Osmanthus, African Orange Flower, Lotus, Violet

I'm not that big of a fan due to the praline note. I just can't seem to wear it. Will probably be given to someone who is a fan. 

17)      Gwen Stefani HL MUSIC
 GroupFloral Fruity
Launched - 2008
Top - Clementine, Pear
Middle - Sweetpea, Honeysuckle, Jasmine

My Dad bought both me and my mam a bottle back from duty free a few years ago. I'm not a big fan of it but I like to keep it around anyway. 

So that's Part 1, I'll be writing part 2 soon. 

Hope someone found some needed information from it and I'f you could leave your own perfume collection links that would be awesome!
