People have been asking me about my fave perfumes for a minute now, here are the ones I keep at my desk and wear on a daily/weekly basis. Not including the ones that aren’t out yet or over $200 because they aren’t really accessible imo. I can do a roundup of those at a future date if you’d like. Anyway, a breakdown.
Perfumes: Tom Ford Noir, Calvin Klein Downtown*, Jo Malone Vetyver*, Jo Malone Nutmeg & Ginger*, MMM Replica Funfair Evening*, CDG Blue Encens, Balenciaga L’essence, Tom Ford Black Orchid, Dior Poison (vintage 1987 formulation)*, NEST White Sandalwood*, Camellia by Soap and Paper Factory*.
I’m not going to go scent by scent describing the notes and story behind them all (I’m going to see Beyonce later today! I have to get ready!) but the notes in these are all similar.
- Black Pepper
I lean towards very intense perfumes, I don’t like light, airy, floral smells, I like leathery, oriental chypre formulations, noirs, more unisex perfumes. I think the exceptions to this would be Funfair Evening and Balenciaga’s, which are more powdery sweet and floral than the rest. If you’d like in depth reviews of any particular scent let me know! But here are my current frequent favorites.
