Bvlgari Rose Essentielle | $95 | Nordstrom: Floral notes of ottoman rose, prelude rose, jasmine and violet, combined with the spicy base notes of sandalwood and patchouli. This is the perfume I’ve had for the longest time. I first asked for it for Christmas one year, and I’ve been repurchasing ever since. It’s rose, but
Chloe Roses de Chloé | $70 | Sephora: Fresh Cut Roses, Bergamot, Rose Essence, Magnolia Accord, White Musk, Amber. I get the most compliments on this one. It smells like pure roses to me, and it’s very strong. I was hesitant about getting it at first because I already had the Blvgari, but I’m so glad I did.
Chanel N°5 Eau Premiere | $100 | Nordstrom: Modern, airy interpretation of the the classic N°5. Rich, warm, intense floral scent. I just bought this one with the latest Saks beauty coupon after nursing a sample for a few weeks in my makeup bag. It smells powdery and wonderful. It’s not as strong as Coco Mademoiselle, but it’s just as elegant.
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle:$95 (Purse Spray) | Nordstrom: Bergamot, orange, jasmine, rose, patchouli, vetiver, white musks, vanilla. This is the strongest scent I have and I love how elegant it seems. I like spray it once in the morning and it lasts the whole day. It’s easy to overdo it with this one, so I make sure to only spray it once. I love the refillable purse spray.
Jo Malone Red Roses | $65 | Nordstrom: Composed of seven types of roses from around the world with a heart of crushed violet leaves and hints of lemon and spearmint. This is a pure, rose scent. It’s similar to Roses de Chloé, but I find it to be a little lighter.
Caswell-Massey Exlixr of Love | $40 | ElementsBeautyShop.com: Perfume-grade oils of Jasmine, Lavender, Egyptian Musk, and Passionflower and a secret herbaceous ingredient. I love this scent. It’s very unique, and the only thing I wish is that it lasted longer. I carry it in my purse to reapply, and I’m on my second bottle.
