A Fragrant Christmas...

Hello everyone! I hope you all had an awesome Christmas and a fabulous New Year! Whilst the holidays are almost over, I thought I'd take the chance to reflect on some of the wonderful gifts I received in them. 

Working over Christmas at a fragrance counter has lead me to develop what some might call an unhealthy desire to own several beautiful smelling fragrances - if I didn't own enough already! So, with Christmas near to me, I took that as an opportunity to drop some not so subtle hints on the fragrances I'd love to receive off of my loved ones. Being the awesome people that my loved ones are, those hints were listened too and I was lucky enough to receive some fragrances that I'd been lusting over for quite some time! In this post, I thought I'd share with you and with the aid of Google, I shall be attempting to describe their scents to you as well!


1. Marc Jacobs - Oh, Lola!

This a sweet, floral and fresh scent that I've wanted for quite a while now. Like a lot of Marc Jacob's scents, it's light enough to wear daily and as always, comes with beautiful packaging!

Scent Notes:

Top Notes - Strawberry, Raspberry and Pear
Middle Notes - Magnolia, Peony and Cyclamen
Base Notes - Sandalwood, Tonka Bean and Vanilla.

2. Marc Jacobs - Decadence

The newest fragrance from Marc Jacobs, this is one I have only recently discovered. It is quite a mature scent to the ones usually released by this brand and indeed, to ones that I'd usually go for. It's a very sophisticated and luxurious smell and one that would be perfect for night time - though still light enough in my opinion to be worn in the day, too.

Scent Notes:

Top Notes - Plum, Iris and Saffron
Middle Notes - Bulgaria Rose, Jasmine and Orris
Base Notes - Amber, Vetiver and Papyrus


3. Thierry Mugler - Alien

A much loved and raved about perfume, this has always been one that I just haven't been sure about but have always been interested by. There is something so unusual about this fragrance that has always attracted me to this scent - it's a lot more intense and arguably muskier than scents I am used to wearing and so I've always been unsure of whether to get it. It's a very unique smell and one you'd definitely recognise instantly.

Scent Notes:

Top Notes - Jasmine
Middle Notes - Wood
Base Notes - Amber

So, those are the wonderful fragrances I received for Christmas. Are any of your favourites up there? If not, what are they?
