    I’m a perfume addict! Recently went on a trip to the US and came back with a suitcase overflowing 🙂 I’m crazy about

    Lady Million by Paco Rabbanne
    Valentina by Valentino
    Dot by Marc Jacobs
    Legacy by Coach

    Have you ladies tried any of these before and have any recommendations that are similar? I love either very fruity or floral, not really woody scents… Not sickly sweet though either!

    I’ve only got back into wearing fragrances in the last 6 months or so, but here’s a list of my (albeit small for now) collection:

    Calvin Klein – Down Town (the fragrance that made me start wearing perfume again)
    + Forbidden Euphoria (just bought this duty free whilst on holidays)
    + Eternity Aqua (probably my fave of all the fragrances)
    DKNY – Be Delicious (Myer recently had 30mL bottles on sale for $30, too good to resist)
    Marc Jacobs – Honey

    Wanted to get the original Chloé whilst away, but it was/is too expensive for my liking. :o(

    I don’t buy a lot of commercial perfumes any more, though I do have a sizeable collection of indie perfume oils. I just sorted them out this morning into little baskets to tidy up the drawer a bit, so here is a pic for anyone interested. 🙂

    Wow Dee255 just a few! Do you have some absolute favourites?

    I have so many favourites! But my top 5 would be:

    Arcana Estella

    Firebird Almond Milk
    http://365daysofsmells.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/almond-milk-firebird-bath-and-body.html
    Solstice Scents Nightgown
    http://365daysofsmells.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/nightgown-solstice-scents.html
    Poison Apple Potions Lady Victoria
    http://365daysofsmells.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/lady-victoria-poison-apple-potions.html
    Arcana Devilish
    http://365daysofsmells.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/devilish-arcana-soaps.html

    As you can see, my tastes lean heavily towards vanilla and white florals. 😉

    Ooh those links were a dangerous thing! Now I want some of these indie perfume oils, they sound delicious!

    Bee1, indie perfume oils are fantastic – they smell unique and most of the businesses sell samples so you can try small amounts to find what you like. Of course, if you like everything you end up with a collection like mine or Michelle’s…

    I don’t have a huge perfume collection but I like it that way so that once I’ve finished a few bottles, I can buy a few more! Otherwise they’ll never get used up lol

    Uh-oh, I just checked out your blog, Dee, and now I want some smellies from Arcana Soaps!

    Sent you a message via your blog. 🙂

    You’re too kind. Thankyou for your kind offer, I’ll email you 🙂
    Oh, and as for the blog post, it’s nothing exciting, pretty much just the pics. I wanted to post them before starting future SOTD posts

    Yep, sizeable alright, Dee! Can you list them? LOL, just kidding, I can just imagine the wafts of the mingled oils, I’m sure it would be amazing 🙂 I have my indie oils in one of those cheap jewelry hangers.

    Ha, I did do an inventory of them on my blog a few months ago, but, er… there may or may not be quite a few more since then.

    The smell of my bedroom – where they are stored as it’s the darkest, coolest room in the house – is lovely, but in the summer it can get a bit overwhelming! You must be up there with your collection by now – do you buy many full bottles?

    The last time I bought perfume oils was from Hayward Enterprises during the Black Friday sale. I’ve been trying to put a stop to my splurging until I start using up some full sizes.
    These are my oils and some solids in there, too. (I’m in the middle of a perfume collection blog post, lol)

    Oh, I see lots of familiar labels in there. Can’t wait to see the blog post!
