Favourite Summer Fragrances

my favourite summer scents are: Calvin Klein: One Shock, Thierry Mugler: Womanity; Chanel: Chance Tendre aand Thierry Mugler again: Alien.
I have the tendency to always give my perfumes labels. I prefer to use different fragrances for the different seasons, with only one or two exceptions (like, for example, Alien. I can't live without it and still I use it just a couple of times a year for really special occasions). I pick light flowery scents for summer and since I always experiment, every single summer of mine smells different.
One Shock: I'm not going to lie to you. I picked it up because it looked too cute. I've been slightly obsessed with neons lately (anyone else or is it just me?) and I just couldn't resist the electric pink. Turned out that the perfume wasn't that bad at all, either. I would definitely use it on a daily basis.
Chance Tendre: My absolute favourite summer scent. It's delicate and airy and perfect for the heat outside.
Womanity: I love all Thierry Mugler perfumes. They just have this special something, they all smell somehow untypical and this one in particular is my scent. It's a little bit heavier and I can't wear it all the time, because I get a little dizzy (no kidding!) but I choose it for a night out or, like earlier today, for good luck during exams. ;)
Alien: Sometimes when I smell a perfume I've had once before, I have a deja vu. I am sure you've experienced it, too. That's why I adore Alien. Everytime I put it on I remember a very special summer, wonderful memories come to me and it's a great experience. I really don't use it much, but when I do, I make sure it's for something quite extraordinary.

Do you use your perfumes till the last drop and then throw the bottles away? Or do you keep just a little bit at the bottom and store it away somewhere? I always prefer to store some away, it's like storing memories, don't you think?

  2. I have NEVER used a whole bottle before haha :) I only wear it on special occasions because I have bad allergies, but I love collecting them. My favorite right now is Marc Jacobs Eau So Fresh because I wore it on my wedding day + honeymoon. I will always cherish that smell.

  3. are u using wacom bamboo to hand write the word in your picture?

    1. Yep, I use the Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen & Touch. It's budget friendly, super easy to use and comes with a nice set of applications that are so much fun! :)

  4. I keep perfumes too, just smelling them can bring back really strong memories- they can be a bit of a time capsule! I love Alien too- I really want some soon!

  5. Dear Lilah,
    you're right - posting it on your blog would be a motivation to finish it! In my case it works like this:) I'll follow your little blog on bloglovin, 'cause I like it a lot!

  6. PS: I use only one fragrance from ages - Lilac from Yves Rocher. I'm now using third bottle and throwed the rest away:)

  7. I own two bottle of these Chance by Chanel. The second bottle is a gift from my fried. :)
