Fragrance Fatale

One accessory that I cannot and refuse to live without is perfume. I.  LOVE. Fragrance. Some people have a signature scent they like to stick to. I, on the other hand, like to have a variation of scents I can switch up depending on my mood and the occassion. Just like you have casual apparel and evening wear, you have casual fragrances and fragrances you can wear with your evening wear. These are (currently) my pick of the top 10 favorite fragrances I think every girl should have in her collection.

1. Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture
Yea, so I'm on the way to my third bottle of Viva La Juicy. If I had a signature scent, it'd be this one because I wear it the most. I honestly haven't met one woman, or man, who doesn't love Viva. 

2. Acqua Di Gioia by Giorgio Armani
Unfortunately, Acqua isn't apart of my collection yet, but ever since I first smelled it in Ulta, I couldn't remember the last time I had wanted a fragrance as badly since Viva La Juicy. It reminded me of why I love being a woman so much - fresh and feminine to perfection.

3. Miss Dior Cherie by Dior
I'm still working on ways to swipe this one from my mom's personal collection. I covet Miss Dior Cherie - the scent is so girly and sweet, that it's sexy. A lot of scents that are too sweet are usually too overbearing for me, but this one is just right for every woman!

4. Couture Couture by Juicy Couture
Yes, another winner from Juicy Couture. Currently on my second bottle (Ok. Maybe I have a problem). Couture Couture is my evening wear go to. The scent reminds me of wine, except you can wear it. Very edgy and mature, I love it!
5. The One by Dolce & Gabbana
The first time I smelled this, I was at my friend's house. She said "Smell the Dolce and Gabbana on my dresser, Jess. I think you'll like it." So typically, I fell in love immediately. This scent is definitely for the grown - it's a very mature scent, but subtle and sexy. Enticing for sure.

6. Flora by Gucci
I've only smelled this one once, but I remember that I couldn't stop smelling it. Very fresh and airy, a wonderful floral scent!
7. Tainted Love by Tokyo Milk
Another perfect evening out, date night kind of fragrance. It's a very sexy and edgy kind of scent, and that could be due to the small trace of vanilla bean and orchid infusion. I have the smaller, roller ball version of Tainted Love and I rarely use it because I don't want it to run out - I love it that much. 

8. Legacy Coach by Coach
Another wonderful classy, casual scent. I think Legacy Coach is another one that could easily become someone's signature scent - it's light, sweet, and a lot of fun!

9. Very Sexy body mist by Victoria's Secret
Well, I think the name pretty much speaks for itself. And Victoria's Secret. As usual.
10. Daisy by Marc Jacobs
 And last but not least, the fun and floral scented Daisy by Marc Jacobs. It's light and feminine - it really does remind you of a stronger scented daisy flower. And hey, who doesn't love flowers?

These are just my current favorite fragrances on the shelves right now. Maybe I'll do a follow up post on cologne? Hmm... stay tuned on The Stares!
