At One Whiff…

P/S: All images are from Google Images : )… 

Today, I am going to blog about perfumes! =D Perfumes that I fell in love with from the very beginning till the end and perfumes that I have just learnt how to love them :)…

First of all, allow me to introduce my first love to all of you! =P When I was way younger, I walked into The Body Shop and at that time, the major discovery was that they sell perfumes! =X At that time, a blue greenish bottle caught my attention, I still remember that the colour of the bottle was so eye pleasing that I reached out for it. One whiff and I fell in love with it : )…

Oceanus from The Body Shop was my first love and till today, it is still my favourite although some of my friends claim that they no longer like the same perfume as they were younger anymore. For now, I always believe that Oceanus feels just like me and that is the main reason I bought it.

At one whiff, I remember what I felt was the love for freedom and wind breezing in the sky calmly. The perfume was somewhat wild but calm. Today, Oceanus has been discontinued by The Body Shop and honestly, I was really, really upset when the sales assistant broke the news to me. But all I can hope is that one fine day, Oceanus will return to the shelves of The Body Shop and by then, you can be sure that I will be their very first customer =]…

No matter what, Oceanus will always remind me of my teenage self and till today, I still take a whiff off the bottle once in a while just to feel happy because it reminded me of one day where I can go to the beach, play in the sea water and take lots of awesome photographs with my friends! =D

I think the colour of the bottle should be of a darker blue =X…

Up next, my second love would be Aqua Lily from The Body Shop as well =D… When it was first released, I remember that I was attracted to the colour and shape of the bottle. The colour of the bottle gave me the impression of a very willful girl and when the sales assistant handle me a sample of Aqua Lily on the strip of paper, immediately I fell in love with it. 

Although it doesn’t feels like me the way Oceanus makes me feel, but somewhat something in me tells me that Aqua Lily will smell good on me! =] Yes, until today I still get compliments here and there whenever I use Aqua Lily and what surprises me even more is that whenever I am using this perfume, Wei Jie will always compliment me without knowing that it is actually the same perfume =]…

Sadly, Aqua Lily too has been discontinued by The Body Shop and yea, all I can hope is it will be back on the shelves of The Body Shop again =|…

L-R: The Body Shop Dreams Unlimited, White Gardenia, Moroccan Rose, Japanese Cherry Blossom.

 I have a liking for these four perfumes from The Body Shop but unfortunately, the liking isn’t strong enough to drive me to want them that much. Dreams Unlimited and Japanese Cherry Blossom smells nice but it doesn’t have this string individualistic scent. On the other hand, when I first took a whiff of White Gardenia; I fell in love with it and I was told that it is LIMITED EDITION so that turns me off because I can never get it anymore once it’s sold out. Moroccan Rose was also another love at first sight but very sadly, it smells like any typical rose scented soap that you can get at any pharmacy =|…

So yea, my favourite from The Body Shop remains – Oceanus, Aqua Lily and White Gardenia =)…

Tendre Poison by Dior was my childhood love. My mum has this bottle of perfume and I remember very vividly that when I was younger, I always have a liking for this perfume and I love it whenever my mum spray it on herself, my sisters and I.

Recently, I began to use the same bottle that my mum has never finished and whenever I use it, I will always get compliments! =D To me, this is a perfume that made me feel like me right now! =P One whiff – the perfume is classy, strong but not overpowering. Most of all, the perfume has a very individualistic scent – a scent that I can never get anywhere else and this is what makes it very special to me =D !

And guess what, I walked into Sephora and saw three different bottles of Tendre Poison O____O… When I asked the sales assistant, she said that the new green bottle is a reformulation of the old Poison so that basically means, it has been ‘discontinued’ =|… Seriously, must everything that I like and feels like me be discontinued?! 

Beautiful by Estee Lauder is  another childhood favourite of mine and until today, it is still my favourite. Although I like this perfume a lot and enjoy using it but it never feels like me =X… I have no idea what does it feels like but the perfume is very relaxing, not overpowering and the perfume on its own has a very classic feel when I use it =]…

White Linen from Estee Lauder is another childhood love of mine. It has a soft but sharp scent and in a way, it reminded me of a soft-spoken lady with a strong personality. Although I have a liking for it, but unfortunately, this perfume never feels like me because it doesn’t have this individualistic scent that stands out on its own.

J’adore by Dior is my current favourite although I do not own it. I was at the Dior counter looking at all the perfumes because I felt like I always have a special liking for Dior’s fragrances. The sales assistant approached me and asked me if I am looking for anything in specific and this is what I told him:

I want an EDP perfume that smells like an EDT – soft, subtle but yet strong, lasting and individualistic in its own way. 

Immediately he introduced J’adore to me, at first I was doubtful because most EDP perfumes often choke me. But the moment he handed me the sample of J’adore EDP, IT IS what I have been looking for high and low for so many years. One whiff, it feels like me; it is not the me right now but it just… feels like me =]…

This is one of the perfect perfumes that I have been looking for =]… When I held the bottle in my hand, the curvy bottle and gold motif attracted me more than ever and when I saw the price, I couldn’t bring myself to buy it because that will cost… too much for a student like me T_______T… So yes everyone, you can be sure that J’adore will stay at the counter until I buy it and then it will be discontinued like every perfumes that feels like me @_@…

Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet is another favourite of mine from Dior =D! When I first saw the bottle, I was attracted to it because it looks so cute! =D One whiff and I fell in love with it! ❤ It reminded me of me when I was a child – walking in the garden full of flowers with my parents and siblings. The fragrance is soft, subtle and individualistic =]… To me, this is a younger scent as compared to J’adore but it is not as classy as J’adore yet =P…

Miss Dior Cherie L’eau is a fragrance that I never bother paying attention to due to its light greenish colour. Any light greenish perfume will always give me the impression of having a green tea like scent which I truly dislike. The girl at the counter told me that it has a very cologne like scent and it is very lasting. It was then I decided to give it a try, at one whiff – it smells like a female cologne and comes out very strong but turns into a very subtle scent.

I have taken a liking for Miss Dior Cherie L’eau when it turns into a subtle scent but it doesn’t feels like me at all because it comes out too strong for my liking but yes, it is a good fragrance that I would recommend if you are looking for a more refreshing scent =]…

One day, as I was at Elizabeth Arden counter browsing their perfumes, this cute bottle attracted my attention and when I was handed a sample of it – I find it classy, sexy and it has a very nice powdery/lotion scent. I was told that its name is Nanette Lepore and I am quite surprise that this EDP did not choke me in any way =P… And I must admit that if I ever buy this perfume, the main reason will be because it is a very long lasting fragrance that lingers on you the whole day =]… Although I have a liking for it, but the liking for it isn’t as strong as any Dior perfumes yet =P…

When I first saw this red colour bottle at Elizabeth Arden, I was attracted to it’s colour and one whiff, I liked it a lot but then, it doesn’t have this very individualistic scent that makes me feel like it is special. Somewhat, I felt like for now – I do not have a strong liking for Elizabeth Arden’s fragrances [Although I do think that most of them are very long lasting in terms of staying power throughout the day] and I always have a very strong liking and love for Dior’s fragrances =)…

I first saw Provocative by Elizabeth Arden on the counter and I like the shape of the bottle [Haha! Packaging matters! xP]. When I was handed a sample of it, I liked it a lot but then the fragrance isn’t special/individualistic in its own way. To me, most of Dior perfumes are very individualistic and Elizabeth Arden perfumes are very long lasting but this is just my personal opinion =]…

Eau de Dolce Vita by Dior is a perfume given by my Dad’s friend. When I first received it, one whiff – I did not have a liking for it because it has a very matured lady like scent and somewhat, the scent of it chokes me a little although it is an EDT. I left it on my table for months until one day, I decided to give it a chance to prove itself and to prove me being wrong about it.

When I first sprayed the perfume – I regretted because the scent doesn’t feels like me at all. But after sometime, my nose detected a very nice scent that I began looking around for it only to realize that it is the perfume that I am wearing on my skin. To my surprise, it turns into a very subtle yet strong scent that I like a lot that today, Eau de Dolce Vita by Dior is one of my favourite =]… I was also surprise when I went out with Wei Jie or my friends and they told me that I smell nice xP…

Hah! This is a very good lesson for me and everyone else out there – do not judge a book by it’s cover and in this case, do not judge a perfume by its top note! =P

~*~

All in all, this ‘unofficial review’ is based solely my own opinion about the perfumes that I have tried at the counter and perfumes that I/my mother own =]… I always believe that each and everyone of us will have a different opinion and liking for perfumes although two best friends may agree on a perfume that they both like =]…

As my woman, Melissa Khoo [Who also believes that preference for perfume is something personal] puts it:

We find a lot of perfume that we like but never THE ULTIMATE one.  No matter how much we like it, we know there’s something out there better.
