If you're looking for a fresh new start in 2012 then a fresh new fragrance could be the thing to help you emulate that 'new you'. Personally, I don't need much of an excuse for a new fragrance which is probably why I've tried so many. Here are a few that I've tried out lately, perhaps there's one for you in this bunch...
Philosophy, You are Divine
This scent is exclusively available at QVC and was my holiday perfume for my recent trip to Egypt. The bottle is simple and classic, much like the fragrance itself. It's floral but not too fresh, quite warm but not spicy. It felt romantic and very wearable either at day or (with a few extra spritzes) at night. Very elegant, sophisticated and with a subtle sexiness. My fave of the bunch.
Guess Seductive, I'm Yours
This fragrance is oriental and sexy with fruity elements. I'd imagine the woman who wears it would be confident and willing to stand out and it's definitely an evening fragrance to be worn with your favourite party dress. I'm saving this one for Valentine's Day.
Lacoste, Touch of Pink
Touch of Pink is an established and popular fragrance but I only tried it out quite recently. It's young, floral and easy-to-wear, making it a great daytime perfume. It's light and makes a good summer fragrance too. It might seem odd, but it smells like 'pink', totally girly and carefree. I personally prefer something a bit heavier, but I reckon this one is a great gift idea for teens or girly girls.
Christina Aguilera Secret Potion
This perfume is another pretty fragrance which is very sweet and seductive. It's not too overpowering so could be worn at day or evening. It features notes of passion fruit, orange blossom and musk which combine to create a pleasant and very feminine fragrance.
This fragrance from Hugo Boss is based around creamy vanilla with citrus top notes and heart notes of orange blossom. The campaign famously features Sienna Miller who is said to capture the care-free spirit of the scent. It's been around for some time but is hugely popular and it definitely wins the 'looks good on your dressing table' prize.
