I’m a bit of a perfume junkie; a lover of the scent through and through. I am so addicted, I even have ‘day’ perfumes and ‘night’ perfumes. I’m very much into quite strong scents, and at night I do really love a musky, almost masculine scent. I thought I’d just share with you some of the perfumes I have/had in my collection.
1. Escada Especially Delicate Notes
Especially Escada Delicate Notes is an airy, fresh and light version of the original Especially Escada, which is based on the note of rose. The aroma is elegant and refined for a carefree girls, spring time and good mood.

2. Versace Crystal Noir
‘According to Donatella Versace, Crystal Noir is a rare essence, sensual and delicate. The central note of the composition is mysterious gardenia, fresh, sensual, luminous and creamy, reproduced by ‘headspace’ technology,. Amber and musk in the base make the scent dark and mysterious, very sensual and distinct. The fragrance was created by Antoine Lie in 2004.’
3. Thierry Mugler Alien
‘Alien spreads mysterious aura, and it claims the right to that already by its name. Thirteen years after the huge success of Angel, Thierry Mugler has decided to challenge the perfumery world once again. Alien is a magic elixir captured in a bottle in the shape of a strange object, reminiscent of philosophers’ stone or some warlock object of a deep and mysterious purple color. Its woman has to be a bit of a witch. The creators of Alien based the composition on three main lines: warm white amber in the base, woodsy notes in the heart, and sunny Indian jasmine in the top.’

5. Giorgio Armani Code for Women

A luminous opening captures the essence of two different oranges – bitter orange from Africa and sweet Italian orange. In the heart of the composition Tunisian orange blossom absolute makes a magical floral fantasy in alliance with jasmine Sambac. Its sensual trail brings a sweet unity of orange blossom, vanilla and a drop of honey.’
6. Thierry Mugler Womanity
‘Composition of Womanity was created by Mane, as a powerful contrast of elements. By using the new molecular process of extraction, Mane manages to extract natural aromas of fig for sweet accords. Savory notes originate from caviar and the structure in ensured by fig wood aromas.
