Just like we dress, listen to music or wear a certain make-up look according to our mood, most people also wear a perfume depending on their mood. The perfumes that I usually wear during winter are much stronger than the ones I wear in summer. As a perfume junkie I’m very picky and specific when it comes to choosing a fragrance. Whenever I want to go for a timeless fragrance that’s feminine that’s not too sweet nor too spicy, I usually choose a perfume that I think my mother would wear. I personally don’t like most of the perfumes in the market that are considered “classics” so I’ve created my own selection of classics that I’m currently using. I usually wear these perfumes whenever I’m in a mature, sophisticated mood and when I want to impress someone (business wise) 😉
After creating a budget friendly gift guide for the holidays, I also wanted to do a luxurious version for those who may have a bigger budget to spend on gifts. These are definitely items I would love to receive as a gift (ahumm, hint Ryadh). You’ll find some of my favorite places to get beauty products, jewelry, shoes, make-up tools, bags, candles and the list goes on. If you prefer a more budget friendly guide, then click here
Sweet floral scents are my go to perfumes during summer. I love sweet fragrances however, I prefer floral scents over fragrances that smell like desserts. I usually tend to wear sweet fragrances more during the summer season than during winter. I’ve made a list of my favourite sweet scents that won’t make you smell like a chocolate bar but more like a sweet flower instead. These are my top 5 picks of sweet fragrances for summer
You think you’ve seen it all with Jo Malone until out of nowhere they drop the most luxurious collection of colognes with each individual scent being completely different from another. The “Rare Tea” collection features colognes that are inspired by, you guessed it… Tea. Not ordinary tea but from Japanese foothills to China to the Himalayas and for the first time; infused straight from the leaf into refined fragrances.
I’ve decided that every month, I’ll be sharing my favorite fragrances. On top of my list at the moment are; Tory Burch, Narciso Rodriguez and Ellie Saab.
Introducing the Oud & Rose fragrance collection by L’Occitane… Oud & Rose is the latest fragrance of the collection by L’Occitane. ”La Collection de Grasse” named after the Mediterranean city of Grasse in Provence. The collection was created to unite two regions known for history and tradition of perfumery, by creating balance between Arabic and French style in fragrance creation. I was approached by the brand to be a part of this fragrance project. I feel so honoured to have worked with L’Occitane on this campaign! I absolutely love the images, it really brings out the feeling and inspiration of the fragrance – a mysterious, woody and spicy breeze from the Orient.
This Summer, L’Occitane has released a collection that is based of the most popular and feminine flower; Peony. I’ve always loved L’Occitane products, especially their fragrances so this collection is definitely worth trying.
I recently attended the launch event for the Jo Malone ”Mimosa & Cardamom” cologne and to my surprise I’ve learned so much compared to any other fragrance launches I’ve ever been to. Did you know that you can combine two or three fragrances together. If you feel like a fragrance isn’t sweet or fresh enough for you, you just add another fragrance to compliment each other… How genius! How have I never thought of this before?! This fragrance in particular is recommended to combine with the Jo Malone ”English Pear & Freesia” fragrance to add warmth to it.
If you’ve already loved the intense Modern Muse Chic version, you’re going to love the Le Rouge version even more! The difference between the Le Rouge version and the first two Modern Muse fragrances is that it’s much more softer, feminine, milkier, sweet yet fresh at the same time. This is one of the few fragrances that really speaks to me with every single accord. If I would create my own fragrance, it would smell exactly like this one!
Despite it already being launched last year in most parts of the world, this Summer we finally get to welcome the Eau de Toilette version of Dior Addict in the UAE! Yay! The fragrance is feminine yet fresh at the same time which makes it the ultimate beauty must have for Summer.
