The Prettiest Fragrances for your Dressing Table

Posted on August 20, 2016

Hi Guys!

Obviously perfume is all about the scent – but you must admit a pretty bottle really doesn’t go amiss! I love nothing more that displaying my most beautiful perfume bottles like trophies – does anyone else do this?? I thought I’d put together some of my more fabulous ones to share with you today –

The-Prettiest-Fragrances-for-your-Dressing-Table

Starting with Capri Vince Camuto EDP – this is actually my first experience of Vince Camuto fragrances, and I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. When I took the bottle out of the box I was wowed by how unusual it was. The bottle itself is a curious hexagonal shape, with a striking ocean blue hue. The lid has an intricate cut out detail almost like abstract leaves, and the bottle is finished off with a delicate blue bow and silver charm around the neck.

A wanderlust at heart, the Capri Vince Camuto woman is in love with the world and all it has to offer. When she’s travelling, colours seem brighter, sounds sharper, senses ignited with a zest for life. No matter where she goes, Capri Vince Camuto is her passport to adventure, a reminder of spontaneous summer days and sultry nights.

Capri Vince Camuto is a warm, yet fresh and invigorating fragrance – reflecting the coastal landscape and waters of Capri, Italy. The scent’s top notes of Pear and Pink Grapefruit mingle with a floral bouquet of Peach Blossom and Violet Flower at the heart, leading to a rich base of Musk and Vanilla. Like a cool Mediterranean breeze, this floral-fruity fragrance transports your senses. Imagine the warmth of sun-kissed skin, with the freshness of a cool breeze on the skin.

  • Top Notes: Violet Leaves, Juicy Pear, and Pink Grapefruit.
  • Heart Notes: Red Frangipani, Peach Blossom, and Violet Flower.
  • Base Notes: Musk and Vanilla.

Capri Vince Camuto is £55.00 for 100ml at Debenhams.

Next Chloe Love Story EDT – this is just such a classic, pretty and feminine fragrance, and the bottle reflects this perfectly –

…In the palm of her hand, a lucky charm. A padlock, universal symbol of love, a treasured emblem of the maison Chloé. A glass jewel adorned with grooves that evoke the pleats in a wispy dress. In the middle, safely protected, a concentrate of this tenderly rosy fragrance that she keeps with her at all times. Its elegant matte white case, embossed with gold letters, is circled with a delicate pink ribbon that holds the finest present: a love story, refreshing and sincere….

Love Story EDT is basically a fresher and more floral version of the original EDP. It’s romance in a bottle! The scent opens with fresh and floral Orange Blossom, mingling with green Prunus Flower and a dewy floral accord. This fragrance is pretty, carefree, fresh and feminine.

  • Top Notes: Orange Blossom.
  • Heart Notes: Fresh Prunus Leaf.
  • Base Notes: Dewy Notes.

Chloe Love Story EDT is from £41.50 for 30ml at John Lewis.

And Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Poudree EDP – now this is a wonderfully powerful and seductive fragrance. “NARCISO eau de parfum Poudrée is sensuality and supreme femininity,” says the designer, “It is never overpowering, but impossible to forget.” The bottle, however is quite understated. The simple square shape made with delicate blush pink glass represents a sophisticated elegance that’s modern yet soft in appearance. This scent is perfect for those looking for something intense, evocative and distinctive…

NARCISO eau de parfum Poudrée embodies a discreet luxury with an intimacy that lingers on a woman’s skin leaving a silken trail. Skin and scent become one and the same, radiating beauty and grace. The fragrance leaves a deep impression as the fragrance dissolves into a woman’s skin and as a memory that lingers.

  • Top Notes: Bulgarian rose, White Jasmine and Orange Blossom.
  • Heart Notes: Musk.
  • Base Notes: Vetiver, Cedar, Coumarin and Patchouli.

Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Poudrée EDP is from £38.50 for 30ml at John Lewis.

And lastly Paco Rabanne Olympea Aqua EDT – I haven’t tried any new Paco Rabanne fragrances for a really long time, so I was excited so see what the new Olympea Aqua would be like. Firstly, the bottle is stunning! Just like the original Olympea fragrance, Olympea Aqua has the same shaped bottle – based on a laurel crown it makes you think of a modern greek goddess, but this time the glass is frosted.

Paco Rabanne brings back the trend of aquatic fragrances with editions inspired by the athletic spirit, competition and victory, Invictus from 2013 and Olympéa from 2015. The new releases Invictus Aqua and Olympéa Aqua further emphasize the aquatic character of these compositions.

Olympéa Aqua opens with the freshness of Calabrian bergamot, aquatic accords and Petitgrain that lead to the heart of Ginger Flower. The power of the fragrance is reflected in the base of Salted Vanilla, Ambergris and Cashmere Wood.

  • Top Notes: Calabrian bergamot, Water Notes and Petitgrain.
  • Heart Notes: Ginger flower.
  • Base Notes: Vanilla, Salt, Ambergris and Cashmere Wood.

Paco Rabanne Olympea Aqua EDT is £53.50 for 50ml at The Fragrance Shop.

The Cargo palette is easily the stand out product here, and Cohorted seem to be quite the fan of Cargo as this is the third palette I’ve received in their boxes! Their eyeshadows are fantastic and I’m so glad I found their brand through Cohorted – I may not have discovered them otherwise!

The Essentials Eyeshadow palette contains muted neutral matte and shimmer shades, in variations of greys, browns and peaches. It’s influenced by the hues of urban architecture, and also contains a dual-ended eyeshadow brush. This has some great every day shades in it that are lovely to use and through previous experience I know they last all day. I think I’ll be getting a lot of use out of this palette!

The next palette is the Laura Mercier Flawless Facebook Palette, this contains a creme tinted moisturiser compact, a mineral pressed powder, two shades of secret camouflage, a secret concealer and a camouflage brush. This set would be perfect to throw in your makeup bag instead of carrying around a load of cover up products, or if you just want to travel light. My only issue with this set though would be that it’s not going to suit everyone’s skin tone.

I love Nails Inc polishes, and the two beauties included in this month’s box are no exception. Colville Mews is a lovely light nude beige shade – I love nude nails so I’m really happy with this. I think the other shade, Chelsea Flower Show is a bit of a ‘marmite’ colour, meaning some people will love it and some will not be so keen. Personally I think it’s great!

The Bareminerals Instant Eye Reviver is one of the most interesting products I’ve come across in a while. Firstly, the bottle felt empty, so I initially thought I may have received a dud. But nope, this little bottle actually contains a powder, with the strangest texture ever. You’re advised to pat the product under the eyes gently, and as soon as you touch it, it disappears and has almost a silicone primer feel on the skin. I don’t feel like this gives me instant results, but I’ll see if it makes any difference in time.

And lastly it was nice of Cohorted to throw in an extra sample, this time it was a 1.2ml vial of Chloe EDP, which is a lovely fresh floral fragrance.

Did you pick up November’s box? I’d love to hear if you have any of these products too!

I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx
