Tuesday Top Five: Fragrances

Happy Tuesday Ladies!

I first want to apologize for not posting up the Tuesday Top Five last week.   Last week was a super tough week for me and my creative brain was really fried!  But no worries, because I’m back this week feeling good and today’s installment is all about smelling good!  I’m incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to review the things that I do and this past year I have reviewed a lot of fragrances.  I love putting on perfumes and body sprays whether I’m going out with the hubby or just going to bed!  My nightstand is completely overrun with cool perfume bottles and these next five perfumes get the most play in my beauty routine!


I can never, ever rave enough about this perfume!  This is one of my absolute favorites!  From a fun bottle to a fun scent to being name after one of my favorite fashionista’s Sarah Jessica Parker, I’m in beauty blogger heaven!  I would gladly buy a few bottles of this just to make sure I never run out!


Balenciaga Paris

I use this perfume when I want to get my “grown woman on”, splashing this on when I’m dressed super professional.  The scent is really chic and sophisticated, making me feel like the business powerhouse I working towards being!

Calvin Klein Beauty

This is the newest addition to my collection, who will be getting it’s own review real soon.  But for now, I’ll tell you that the scent is very feminine without having to smell super fruity.  It’s light and airy, yet strong enough to keep you smelling good all day!


Lola Velvet

Out of all of my perfumes, this one has the coolest bottle, with is big, velvety flower top and purple glass bottle.  The fragrance is just as fun as the bottle, with  a flirty scent that’s strong ( so you have to be careful not to overdo it!)


Harajuku Lovers G

The bottles in this entire collection are so flippin’ cute and even after the fragrance is gone, I would keep the bottle as a cool keepsake.  This perfume was a pleasant surprise because I expected it to be an overly fruity, teeny bopper kind of perfume.  However, it was the quite opposite, still having a girlyness feel but not overbearing, making it real nice to wear!

What are you top five favorite smell goods?
