Today, I wanted to show you guys what perfumes I own. They’re not all super expensive and it’s not a huge collection. I do like receiving perfume as gifts, and two years ago when I had absolutely none I got tonnes for presents. I’ve since used up two bottles before now. I have such a range of scents, which I’m glad because it means there’s something for everyday!
I have ten bottles here to show you.All of which were given to me, mainly by my family and my boyfriend. I’ll explain the scent of each one and why I love it!
Let’s dive on in..
No, this isn’t the bottle and its box, I have two bottles of it! My boyfriend got me it for our anniversary last year. He kind of forgot that he got it for me for our anniversary the year before too! He was kind of embarrassed but I didn’t mind. As you can see I still have a pretty full first bottle so I’ll have to start making my way through this one.
What’s the scent like? I think this is a ‘fancy scent’ I wouldn’t wear it with certain outfits and call me crazy but it’s the truth. I’d wear this more with jeans and a nice top, skirts and dresses. I don’t know why but I’m like that. It’s such an amazing scent though. It contains a lot of scents and when they’re all put together it’s just fabulous. There’s sandalwood, cedarwood, a hint of musk, tangerine,sap, reseda plant, wild rose, red cyclamen, peach flower blossom, blue hyacinth, iris and nectarine. Wow that’s a lot. I wish I could put a scratch and sniff on my page! It’s a strong scent, you only need a little bit and it lasts all day.That’s why I haven’t worked my way through the bottle!
Where can I buy it? Boots You can get the 30ml bottle for 35.00 Euro!
There are 3 here: Sheer, Cherry in the Air & Midnight Heat
Sheer by Matthew Williamson:
I got this as a gift from my boyfriends mam after we got our exam results leaving secondary school. It was a nice surprise because in all honesty I didn’t expect it! It’s not something I would have stopped to look at, perhaps because I never heard of Matthew Williamson before.
What’s the scent like? It’s a beautiful, subtle scent. I like it for everyday wear as it’s not as over powering as some other perfumes.It contains ginger, lime (linden) blossom, green tea and bergamont, magnolia, lily, jasmine and lily-of-the-valley,sandalwood, amber, musk and benzoi. I love this. It’s just so beautiful. I’m so crap at describing scents I’m so sorry! Especially perfumes. I like it quite a lot, and I still have half a bottle.
Where can I buy it? I can’t find any shop names that sell it but you can get it from Littlewoods Ireland and other website. On Littlewoods, it’s 47.00 Eur for 50ml.
Escada Cherry in the Air:
I adore this as you can see from the bottle. It’s so fruity. I got it off my boyfriend when we were in the airport in Rome.How adorable is the bottle though? And you got a wee pink bow ring with it.
What’s the scent like? It’s s sweet, so not for some. You smell like cherries it’s amazing. I love it especially for the summer, or if I’m feeling crappy. I wore it daily for such a long time. The scent lasts ages on you. It contains, sour cherries, marshmallow accords and sandalwood. It’s just perfect. I want it again!

Beyonce Midnight Heat:
I got this two years ago from my Aunt and as you can see I’m low on this one too! I wore this daily for the longest time also. It’s a nice bottle and the scent lasts quite a long time on you.
What’s the scent like? It’s a really nice scent that reminds me of summer nights, when everyone’s gathered and it’s still light at 11pm and it’s just so nice. It contains rich fruity flavors of plum from Armenia, star fruit, orchid, black tulips and purple peony, warm amber, sandalwood and patchouli. I know me telling you what’s in them isn’t really helpful, if you’re like me, you just need to go and smell them!

Where can I but it? I know I keep going to Boots but it’s easy to get to online. It’s 30.50 Euro for 50ml
I got half a bottle of this off my aunt a few years ago and fell in love with it. I got it for Christmas two years ago and still look! I haven’t wanted to use it but when I finish up one of my bottles this on is definitely being used.
What’s the scent like? It’s perfect to me.It’s not too sweet, well my mam thinks it is but I don’t. I think it’s beautiful for both day and nightitme, but it’s more of a Spring/Summer scent to me. It contains black currant, camelia, mandarin orange and apple tree blossom, honeysuckle, lily, violet, mint, grapefruit, lemon, rose,magnolia, leather, sandalwood, jasmine and cedar.

And finally Fame & Villain!
Lady Gaga Fame:
I’ve hardly used this and not because I don’t like it it’s because I had so many other perfumes to use. This one will also be getting used when one runs dry. It has a great bottle design and it’s said that there’s a drop of her blood on each bottle..creepy!
What’s the scent like? It’s quite nice for everyday wear. It can be for evenings too. It contains poisonous flower Belladonna, incense, honey drops, saffron, apricot, Sambac jasmine and tiger orchid.I love it. It can be an addictive scent once you start wearing it!
Where can I buy it? For 50ml it’s 38.00 Euro in Boots.
And lastly EdHardy Villain:
I got this mini bottle from my cousin a few weeks ago, and she had already used some but I’ve had it in my handbag and have been spraying it on in work and stuff. The bottle is so cool too!
What’s the scent like? Most definitely floral and fruity, without a doubt. It would be perfect for Summer! It contains watermelon, lychee, citrus notes, lotus, magnolia, freesia, sandal, orris and creme brulee.
Where can I buy it? It’s a whopping 61.00 for 125ml in Boots, but it is lovely.
