4 Perfumes I'm Loving Right Now

My friend Laura of Blush and Beakers has been educating me about perfumes... slowly. She's an expert. I just know what I like: light, floral, fruity scents. I usually go for what she refers to as "teen scents" like something from The Limited Too. I definitely needed to move into more mature womanly scents. The Luxury Spot recently featured an article about the psychology of perfume. I wonder what these fragrances say about me? These are currently my favorites and make for pretty great spring fragrances as well (although I wear them year round):

Lady Gaga Fame - Yes, this is the one that supposedly smells like blood and semen (I don't think it does). I've actually received a lot of compliments when I wear this perfume. It contains notes of Atropa Belladonna, Tiger Orchid, Incense, Apricot, Saffron and Honey.

DKNY Fresh Blossom - This was my first foray into more sophisticated perfumes. It is very light and fruity smelling, which was perfect for me. It's described as "a blend of sparkling grapefruit, cassis, and sunkissed apricot meets a blooming floral heart of sheer muguet and petally rose wrapped in luminous jasmine. A base of juicy apple, mingled with lingering blond woods."

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb - This is probably the most "perfume" smelling of the perfumes. I know... I'm so scientific. When I browse a magazine, I sometimes smell the perfume samples inside (that's how I found out I liked Fame) and surprisingly liked Flowerbomb. Notes include bergamot, green tea, Sambac jasmine, centifolia rose, freesia, Cattleya orchid and orange blossom.

Narciso Rodriguez For Her - I received a sample in one my beauty boxes and instantly fell in love with the fragrance. It's super sexy! I didn't know perfumes could do such things! Notes include Honey Flower, Solar Musk, Orange Blossom, Osmanthus, Amberlyn, Vanilla, Tactile Musk, Tactile Woods, Vetiver.

What's your favorite perfume?

P.S. I have no idea what all these notes mean. But I typically steer away from "musk" and lean more towards jasmine, honey, and other fruity smells.


  1. Flowerbomb is one of my favorites - it smells so good! I also wear Vera Wang Princess. I used to be into Donna Karan's first perfume and Chanel No.19.

  2. The Narciso Rodriguez one sounds yummy!

  3. Aww thanks for the shout out! Narcisco and Flowerbomb will forever be classics. ....you know how I feel about the Lady Gaga perfume :( lol

  4. I really love DKNY. All their scents are so fresh. My go to fragrance is Ralph Lauren's Romance. I've been a fan of it for years.

  5. I always get compliments when I wear Fame, too! I've yet to post about it yet. I need to work on that. I read in an interview with someone from Coty that thankfully, blood and semen were never in the picture! Lol!

  6. Oh good lol It seriously doesn't smell like that


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
