I’m gonna be dead honest with you: I’m not a perfume guru. Part of me would love to be one; I'd love to know all about those undertones and be able to differentiate between notes of amber, sandalwood, musk and a bunch of other fancy flavours/flowers/fruits that almost always go over my head.

As much as I love shopping I find perfume shopping a real struggle, oh and I forgot to mention I’m one of the most indecisive people ever. I need to trial a perfume out over a long period of time, with different types of occasions if that makes sense. Sometimes I’d love it in store but I bring it home and it’s just not as impressive. Once again I find myself reaching to my older perfumes, whilst the new one sits to collect dust…damn it, why did I zone out when the beautiful lady was poking two perfume testers under my nose…it must’ve been the other ‘eau du toilette’ version I liked…or was it the intense…ughhh f*** knows.
Over time, I’ve found sticking to my usual bunch and only experimenting once every blue moon with a new perfume suits me well. Keeps me sane. Literally. So I thought I’ll share the little stash of scents that I keep going back to:
