New daily perfume

This is my most recent perfume addition and one which I have been wearing every day since I was given it as a birthday gift a couple of weeks ago.

This is Taylor Swift's debut perfume 'Wonderstruck' and I have to be honest...I did originally give it a sniff just because it's Taylor Swift. And the bottle's really pretty, if not a little tacky. (But who's to judge? I love a bit of tack).

The scent is quite sweet and floral, but with little bit of musk so that it's not too sickly or overpowering. And that's as far as my description of the scent is going to go. Not really my forte. But basically, if you like Taylor Swift or sweet perfumes then go and have a whiff and see what you think. It's a nice scent and the longevity isn't bad.

As you can see, I was given the perfume gift set for my birthday which comes with a couple of handy extra: a mini handbag-sized bottle of perfume and the Wonderstruck moisturiser. 

I was thinking it would just be cheap old moisturiser that had be scented to match, but I was pleasantly surprised and really like this. It sinks in to your skin really quickly and isn't at all greasy, but it does leave your skin feeling soft and smelling good.

When these run out I will probably see if the moisturiser is available separately and repurchase that first, rather than the perfume. I like the smell  but I have a few perfumes to be getting through and I'm still determined to find a 'signature scent', so no repurchasing can be done until I am at least close! I do like climbing into bed smelling of this though, on the rare occasions that I actually remember to moisturise before bed.

P.S. Typically I like 'clean' scents the most and it is the perfect clean scent that I am on a mission to find, which i can wear every day. So any suggestions are welcome for perfumes which smell 'clean'...whatever that means.


  1. Hello,

    I myself prefer fresh clean scents to heavy florals or musks.
    My personal favourites are DKNY Be Delicious (the original green apple one) or DKNY woman. They are fresh, clean, and fruity. You are also able to reapply throughout the day without smelling as if you have been thoroughly marinated in it.
    The new release perfume on my wishlist though is Lacostes Eau De Lacoste. I never thought that I would like their perfumes, but I tried it in boots on the off-chance and absolutely fell in love with it! It has subtle floral notes, blended with mandarin, pineapple and vanilla. Absolutely lovely.

    I hope that helps

  3. I've tried a lot of perfumes and I find that it's hard to come by a scent that's fresh and isn't heavy with strong smells. The best one that I've found so far was by Adidas and it was called Fitness Fresh for women. Adidas isn't necessarily a 'fancy' brand, but the smell is very clean. No musk, floral or harsh scents.

    I really like your blog and I can't wait to read more from you.

    Cheers, Kelsey
