Autumn/Winter scents are always a huge part of the seasonal beauty routine. Along with swapping bright coral lipsticks for purple & red tones, I always welcome changing from sweet summer scents to the musky & deep florals for winter. Aramis recently sent me some of their new collection - definitely something here for everyone but I had one clear winner!
This scent really takes me back to when I was younger. Tommy Girl was the first fragrance I bought. I picked it up in an airport on the way home from a family holiday. I think I was about 8 at the time. The Girl is fronted by new Hilfiger designer Gigi Hadid who is taking the world by storm. The scent is a new take on Tommy Girl for a new generation - it's clean, fresh and inoffensive. It's perfect for pre-teens and teens alike and at £34 for 100ml, it won't break the bank.
I am a lifelong fan of Michael Kors scents. In fact, my favourite scent of all time was Michael Kors Very Hollywood. This has been discontinued so I continue to wear the original Michael Kors as a substitute. Wonderlust is the new beautifully packed offering from the MK family. Containing bergamot and almond milk, this sweet scent one for ladies who love long summer holidays and many a cocktail. I like Wonderlust but loved the previous new release Michael Kors Coral much more - just personal preference. I think this would be a great scent for younger girls to get them into Michael Kors as things such as the original scent as much more grown up and musky in comparison.
This out of the three is the stand out for me. I tried this scent after coming home from Italy where I had a fabulous experience trying out the new Louis Vuitton scents (if you are really into scents, I highly recommend going to try them out if you are close to a Louis Vuitton store). The DKNY Be Tempted scent smells so similar to the Mille Feux Louis Vuitton scent and it's about a quarter of the price! I love this so much that I've worn it everyday for the past month and so many people have remarked on it. It's one of those scents that you love but couldn't put your finger on what the notes in it are. To me, it just smells like joy & sparkles. However, the literature tells me it has notes of black currant bud, liquorice, patchouli and violet. I'm so in love with this scent that I feel I might have to stock up as with many of the DKNY fragrances, they tend to be limited edition so grab it whilst you can!
