Issey EDP is truly a stunningly unique fragrance! It's is one of my most favorite fragrances! Water is the central theme of this fragrance. It represents purity, serenity, movement and vivacity by blending the sparkling qualities of water, with the warm undertones of the earth. L'Eau D'Issey is a pure floral with musky and woody tones. A very complex fragrance, the perfume is made up of wide range of flower scents including lotus, cyclamen, freesia and carnations, white lilies, with hints of amber-seed musk. The sent is Devine, I feel like a goddess when wearing it, it's perfect!
I initially ended up having to purchase Sensi Duty Free, was in a rush to catch a connection & really didn't take the time to smell in properly. It just was not 'me'. It is not a summery perfume, I feel it's better suited to those cooler/wintery months because it is a woody/musky fragrance, not 'in your face' musk, but it's there. Yet still too much much for me. I feel it would be perfect for those of you who enjoy that type of fragrance, unfortunately for me, I would never purchase this again.
I received Lovely EDP as a gift from my Mother, she absolutely LOVES this fragrance and thought I would as well. She thought wrong. Don't get me wrong, it's bearable - and it's nice enough to wear during the day to work, or weekends, or supermarket shopping - but that is as far as it goes!! I find the scent quite unusual, and not in a good way. It seems to start off rather sweet, then it turns somewat spicy/musky! I have never been a musky/oriental perfume person - so it just puts me off ever so slightly! The bottle deign is really sleek and sophisticated, I like it - but that is all I like. Once this bottle has run out, I will not replace it! Sorry SJP - I really like you, just not Lovely!!
Kenzo Flower EDP is my signature summery scent! It's light, airy, feminine, flirty and Fun! It's just delicious! I always buy a bottle of Flower EDP when I run out - and I do use mine a lot, most days and nights throughout the warmer months! I initially was drawn to the fabulous design of the Flower bottle, it was so different and unique when it was first released! I love flowers, & loved the Poppy. It is long lasting (I have tried both EDP & EDT - I found the EDT to be a bit 'watery' & I felt I was constantly respraying to smell it al all - I only ever buy the EDP, fabulous!) and even better when you can layer it with the Kenzo Flower Body Gel & Body Lotion! Devine! Whenever I Put on my pretty summer dresses, I reach for my Flower - to me, summer = Kenzo Flower!!
I bought Forever as a gift set in 2003 as my Wedding Fragrance! It was perfect! The scent has such a romantic, whimsical feel about it. It's not hugely overpowering, yet you know your wearing it - it's balance is just right! Its lovely and light, and one of the most amazing scents - the initial spray is a bit 'in your face' (and I initially didn't like it) but after 5/10minutes, it was the most amazingly beautiful and delicate scent I have known! Perfect for my Wedding! I found myself reaching for Forever often, it's light enough for those warmer, summery climates, but I also felt it worked well getting into the cooler months also! Perfect for any time if the year - and any time of the day!! I recently purchased Forever again, (first time since my wedding bottle ran out), and I fell in love with Forever all over again! I also had numerous comments from people!! I love it because it's not a 'well known and used' scent - it's personal and tells a story! I will continue to purchase Forever....... forever!!
Hypnose EDP - you are my Signature Scent! I have fallen in love with you :-) Ok, I have an insatiable perfume addiction & do get around, but this is one of a kind! I was somewat made to buy this Duty Free only because my other perfumes I wanted were not available - so I was forced to look for others. Hypnose had just been released, and the attraction was instant and electric! It's sweet, but not overly sickening - it's a classy sweet! It smells utterly delicious and I also get comments when wearing it! I love the bottle, and the colour of the perfume just really makes it all come together as something quote Hypnotic!! I wear it for evening and special occasions - but when I need a bit if a lift, I will get my Hypnose and spray - I instantly feel happier, it's magical! Since my initial introduction to Hyonose, my Mother and Sister háve become Hypnose addicts also - you have to try it and you will be an addict soon to!!
Euphoria EDP is one of those that I constantly have a bottle of in my wardrobe! It is perfect for everyday wear, or evening and special occasions! It is so versatile and works with however you are feeling!! It is such a unique scent - it not overly heavy, nor is it totally light, which is why I can wear this all year round. It makes me feel alluring, bit cheeky and mysterious - but inviting and playful also! My husband loved Euphoria in me so much, he went and bought the Euphoria for Men! It's a truly Devine fragrance and I will always have a spare bottle of Euphoria on hand when they run out!!!

A lovely, daily wearing perfume! Nothing super special - and not one I would buy for a evening/special occasion type of thing - but for a nice, yummy smelling fragrance that can be worn daily/weekends, then Curious is the way to go! Not overly heavy, not overly sweet or musky! A lovely medium! Makes me feel happy when on!
WOW! Instantly fell in love with CK Beauty! It is everything I have every wanted and needed in a perfume! Devine, sensual and feminine! It reminds ever so slightly of J'adore by Christian Dior! (which I have and love!)! Beauty is a true gem, a classic that will stand the test of time. I only wear at night/special occasions! I am sad it has taken me so long to find Beauty - now that I have, I am never letting go! I will always have a bottle of CK Beauty on me!

I was loving gifted the 100ml EDP of Flowerbomb when I was fighting cancer with Chemo and radiation! I wore this perfume every day, and everyday I went into that hospital, I would get comments on how lovely I smelt and what was I wearing!?!! To me, Flowerbomb is quite a heavy fragrance, and I only wear over the cooler, winter months. I feel it's too heavy for summer. I get quite a musky/spicy type notes that do overpower the floral notes. I have never been into those musky/spicy/oriental type perfumes - in saying that, I did enjoy wearing my Flowerbomb! It has fabulous staying power, a couple of sprays and it lasts ALL day and even after my clothes had been washed, I could still smell remnants of Flowerbomb on them! Amazing! I love the bottle and the packaging. That was four years ago now, and have not repurchased. Since we are coming into our cooler months soon, I am trying to decide to buy Flowerbomb again. I can't work out if I'm unsure because it's smell reminds me of being ill and that horrible time, or if I wasn't really fond of the fragrance to begin with!!??! So, it's kind of a 'blah' fragrance for me, and being the insatiable perfume addict that I am - thats a big statement!!!
The moment I picked up Michael Kors and smelt it's gorgeous scent, I fell instantly in love! An amazingly deep, sexy fragrance. It automatically smells warm and inviting! The blend of notes is so unique. I picture strong, classy women wearing this. It's got a sort of sweetness to it, but this is not to be confused with something young girls would wear. The woods in the dry down go so well with the tuberose, violet and musk notes. A very feminine fragrance! This perfume should not be used frivolously but savored for those special occasions! I love this beautiful perfume, and so does my husband!!
Miracle is my Signature - all year round - scent! I can feel a bit down, and when I spray Miracle on, I instantly feel energized! It's a gorgeous, mesmerizing scent by Lancome! I saviour my Miracle for evening/special occasions. Can be worn in both warmer and cooler months - it's very versatile! I feel extremely sexy and alluring yet young and playful when I wear my Miracle! It's light, sweet but not oppressive, long lasting and I just find it completely intoxicating!! It's addictive :-) My husband cant get enough and I always get told how wonderful I smell whenever I wear Miracle! Husbands and Boyfriends/Partners can't go wrong in gifting their loved one Miracle!!! I will always wear Miracle - I can never get enough of it!!
Fabulous, everyday fragrance! Still by J Lo is her Best fragrance! I wear it during the day, great for work or home or just being out during the day! It's scent, for me, is very feminine yet not in your face sweet - it's perfect! It's surprisingly long lasting - I normally spray in the morning, and it's still going strong mid afternoon! I wore this everyday throughout my two pregnancies, so to me wearing Still speaks to me of hope, happiness, contentment and home!! I love my Still!!
I LOVE Kenzo d'ete! I was first attracted to the beautiful bottle - shaped like a Leaf (which I have forever called it - Leaf!)! It is such a mesmerising, stunning smell! If you are a 'lillies of the valley' kind of girl - I feel this scent is for you! I wear D'ete in the warmer spring/summery months! It's so light - playful and alluring, yet makes me feel sexy and feminine! It's such a unique smell, and completely different from Kenzo Flower - which is my other 'summer scent'! I prefer D'ete over Flower EDP and wish it was more readily available here in New Zealand!! It deserves to be flaunted in every department store - it's worth it :-) I will continue to buy Kenzo D'ete, it is my signature summer scent!!
Poeme is the 'One'! Poeme is my Signature Winter Scent! My one and only during those cooler months! Poeme makes me exude confidence! It enhances your femininity, transports you to that special place where you feel the happiest! It's such an original scent, heavy yet not stifling, long lasting yet not offensive - it's truly perfection personified!
