If you would spend time with me on a daily basis, the first thing you would notice that is that I’m very particular with smell. I literally have this invisible radar with a 10 metre radius. If you smell bad, I can detect your scent from that far and ofcourse, if you smell good, I can set you apart from everyone as well! :P That’s why I’m very addicted to colognes, perfumes, room fragrances, candles and anything that makes me and my surroundings smell amazing! hahaha :) I even fall inlove with hotels I go to by the way it smells. Okay, I’m starting to sound like a freak but that’s really my weakness :P haha!
It’s the very first time I’m writing about this topic and I don’t know why it took me this long. Here I am sharing with you my favorite colognes, ones I’ve discovered from when I was still in my puberty years till today :) Also, I’m gonna tell you why you should start making them part of your routine! :)
Chanel No.5 is a classic. This perfume has been used by icons and is even mentioned in alot of movies and books! This is a staple for every girl and I think every fashionista gets to a point where she owns a bottle of this atleast once in her life. I didn’t think I would get to it this early but this is extra special for me because Ben’s mom gave this to me as a Christmas present last year :) So cute cause she said she chose this size for me so I can travel with it! When I received this from her, I bought myself another bottle and that’s what I use so I can keep this one as a remembrance :) It’s her first gift!
This Belo Baby Sweet Snuggle Cologne is a new discovery for me. I wanted an affordable one that’s very light on the skin. I’ve also heard of the ones that doesn’t have parabens, pathalates and coloring agents that are for the ones that have sensitive skin! The sweet snuggle is a floral scent that will remind you of blooming flowers :) For me, it’s for those girls who are shy types but likes to make a statement ;)
Jo Malone is another new discovery of mine and I only did last year in London when it was in every department store I went to there. This is my favorite flavor – nectarine blossom and honey. This is what I use for when I’m going to an event as it’s very strong! :)
This Jeanne Lavin Couture is an old favorite of mine! I used to wear this when I first started college till all the way in second year. After finishing my first bottle after 6 months and got this second one, I decided that I had to change it up a bit :)
Another new love of mine is this Belo Baby Cool Drizzle Cologne. Compared to the sweet scent of the Sweet Snuggle, this is a more classic one that leaves the skin feeling fresh! It’s like cuddling with a baby for me! Remember the perfume Angel’s Breath for the 90s babies? This is very similar but not painful to the nose. What I didn’t like about that was it was too strong when too much is applied but this isn’t like that at all!! :) Plus it smells like you just got out of a shower! :) Don’t you love smells that give that feel? What I love about it is that the Belo Baby Cologne line contains glycerin that moisturizes and a chamomile-derived ingredient that soothes the skin :)
This is Benefit‘s official scent and I used to live by this until someone told me I smell like a baby prostitute! hahaha! :)
I think at one point in a teenage girl’s life, she went through a D&G Light Blue phase! hahaha It’s like a starter for everyone buying a girl a gift! This is my nth bottle! :)
Ahhh this is my favorite among all three! I just love how this is a fruity scent that adds sweetness to the skin :) It’s like that scent that will wake you up with a GOOOOOOD MORNING! Its awakening and lively! :) Like the other two, this Belo Baby Happy Tickle Cologne is hypo-allergenic, dermatologist tested and perfect for all skin types. Plus, I’m a Belo Baby so I trust anything that has the Belo name on it! ;) If you’re looking for everyday colognes that are affordable, perfect for every mood you have, matches every outfit you feel like wearing and that doesn’t have any harmful chemicals and is perfect for all skin types, I highly suggest purchasing the line :) To know how, visit their site BeloBaby.ph!
Now on to why I think YOU should make cologne and perfumes part of your beauty routine. Here are 4 reasons:
1. How you smell says alot about your hygiene. Even if you showered that day, if you smell bad or like the sun, it will not matter at all! Imagine how you feel when you’re seated beside a person who smells bad, don’t you feel like he didn’t bother cleaning himself up? :|
2. This is the best first impression. Notice how you will react when you come across a person who smells good, doesn’t she or he leave a good first impression even when you haven’t heard a single word from the perosn? :) Don’t you wanna leave the best one to people?
3. A scent will complete an outfit. I think the reason why there are ALOT of flavours and kinds of perfumes out there is that they’re meant to compliment outfits and looks :)
4. Lastly, how you smell gives people a little peek into what your personality is. When you’re wearing something floral and sugary, it’ll give them that impression that you’re sweet, a woody scent will say that you’re a bit boyish and so on and so forth! :) Won’t it be nice to give them a hint into how you are as a person?
There you go! I hope I got to convince you on this! :) What are you favorite colognes and perfumes?
