喷香水在英文里不叫“spray perfume”，而是“wear perfume”。一个“穿”字，给它加了一把仪式感。就像是，整理完行头，出门前潇洒披上一件大衣一样。
Blackberry & Bay by Jo Malone London
Blackberry & Bay by Jo Malone London is a Floral Fruity fragrance for women. It was launched in 2012. The nose behind this fragrance is Fabrice Pellegrin. The fragrance features grapefruit, floral notes, vetiver, cedar, blackberry and bay leaf.
This is a pretty and non-offensive citrus-blackberry scent. In the opening, I get only a small whiff of the bay leaf and then it's tart and kinda sour. As it's mellowing, the blackberry starts coming through, followed by grapefruit nuances.
As it's dried, I get more grapefruit on my skin vs. blackberry. It's nice for spring or summer days, as I found it to be quite refreshing.
I love a lot of Jo Malone fragrances, but I probably won't purchase this one. Longevity is very weak, plus I like my blackberry fragrances a bit on the warmer side. For me, it's not worth the price tag as there are better blackberry perfumes out there. If you're a die-hard Jo Malone fan, then go for it.
Daisy Marc Jacobs for women
Daisy is a sparkly floral-woody fragrance, fresh and feminine at the same time. It is devoted to a sophisticated, seductive, and dazzling woman, which at the same time strives to simplicity. It is captured in a lovely bottle decorated with daisy flowers on the top. Creator of this fragrance is Alberto Morillas.
Charming Daisy fragrance caresses with the fruity strawberry notes, intensive green aroma of violet leaf and sparkling spicy pink grapefruit. Its heart beats in floral rhythm, composed of silky and intoxicating gardenia, delicate violet, and jasmine petals. The powdery soft dry down is composed of white woods, vanilla and musk.
Daisy reminds me of the summers I spend at my grandparents’ house as a little girl. I have a memory of going outside to play and being hit with that delicious smell of freshly cut grass. You know that watery green smell? That’s what Daisy smells like to me.
Daisy is very green and watery to me. Unfortunately, not long lasting. I get max 4 hours out of it.
I smell Daisy now and I am taken back to spring/summer 2015 when I wore the heck out of my bottle. I repurchased another full size that summer when I reached the halfway point of the bottle I was using. That’s how much I loved it. I was close to finishing my bottle when all of a sudden, I grew tired of it. I think I may have worn it too much and it ended up boring me. I finished my bottle and haven’t touched my backup until recently. I decided to revisit Daisy and fell in love again. Daisy is easy to like but can easily get boring. Next time I’ll make sure not to wear it so often to keep this fragrance interesting.
Black Opium Yves Saint Laurent for women
The highly addictive feminine fragrance from Yves Saint Laurent. Fascinating and seductively intoxicating, the opening notes of adrenaline-rich coffee and the sweet sensuality of vanilla recline into the softness of white flowers for a modern, young, and vibrant interpretation of addiction.
I've reviewed this before when I bought it but I've got to the end of the bottle already and will definitely buy it again. It's become my go to when I can't decide and it is such a crowd pleaser. I know everyone wobbles over wearing stuff for yourself but for me, tbh, a lot of the time I just want something others will love. And this gets compliments all the time and so I feel more confident wearing it.
It's warm, it's sweet, it lasts, the coffee is very subtle, my only bugbear with it is it's one of those ones that I myself can't smell after a while but other people still can smell it on you. The bottle is great for handbag as well, small and compact :D
