My Top 5 Favorite Perfumes

Left To Right:
Avon's 'Make Me Wonder', Bath & Body Works' 'Sweet Pea', Juicy Couture's 'Viva La Juicy', Escada's 'Ocean Lounge', and Dior's 'Pure Poison'.

Make Me Wonder
"Boysenberry entwined with violet and rich vanilla bean."
This perfume smells soo good to me.
My bestfriend's grandmother is an Avon representative so I got this from her, and I believe it's been discontinued. I love this perfume soso much and I'm glad I still have over half a bottle of it left because I'm not sure where I'd buy it now. 
I received this perfume quite a long time ago, I believe 4-5 years.

1.7 oz.
Price (when it was available): Approx. $12

Sweet Pea
"Sweet Pea, Watery Pear, Logan Berry, Rhubarb"
Yes.. technically this is a body spay.
I love this perfume when I want something really fruity smelling. 
It's fruity and it smells kind of "clean" in a way.
I have another bottle that is a little over half full, and it really has lasted me a while, however I tend to go through body sprays much faster than I go through perfume.

8 oz.
Price: $14

Viva La Juicy
"Wild Berries, Mandarins, Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Jasmine, Amber, Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Praline."
My absolute favorite perfume.
I have the teeny baby bottle of this, I believe .5 oz.
I just really love the way this perfume smells, it's strong but not overwhelming.
I bought a set from CVS for $15 (Yes, Fifteen.)
It came with a spray bottle (.5 oz), body lotion(1.7 oz), and the perfume in a small little sample-like bottle(.17 oz).
It really doesn't take a lot to make this perfume stick throughout the day, I personally find the smell addicting, I'm really in love with it.

3.4 oz. Price: $89
1.7 oz. Price: $69
1 oz. Price: $52
.25 oz Rollerball: $19
.024 Solid Perfume Necklace: $48

Ocean Lounge
"Blend of plum, lychee, strawberry meringue accord, mimosa blossom, violet petal sorbet, ambery notes, jasmine, teakwood, sheer vanilla, pear nectar accord"
This perfume is truly amazing. I really don't know how else to put it.
I originally wanted Escada's Moon Sparkle, but my dad had bought me this one.
I was disappointed..until I smelled it.
It's a strong fruity, but once again this perfume isn't overwhelming.
It lasts. For a while.
I got this perfume a long time ago, probably about 4 or 5 years ago and I still have more than half a bottle.

1.7 oz
Price: $50

Pure Poison
"Sweet Orange, Bergamot of Calabre, Mandarin of Sicily, Orange Flower, Jasmine Sambac LMR, Hydroponic Living Gardenia, Sandalwood, White Amber, Musks."
This was my very first high end perfume. Once again, my dad bought me this as well.
This was 5 years ago. How we came about it was we had gone out to eat (used to do that a lot before my dad passed away) and the waitress was wearing it and my dad had asked her about it. Of course then he went out and bought one for my mom and myself. Little did I know at the time, the full size bottle is expensive. However, I guess it's worth it considering I still have it.
Much like the Escada perfume, I plan on keeping it even after it's empty since my dad bought it for me.
This perfume has kind of a "musky" smell but nothing that's gross or 'too much', I think it smells very feminine.
But not only does it smell great, it has meaning as well.

3.4 oz
Price: $102

That concludes my Top Five favorite perfumes!
I've always gotten compliments when I wear there perfumes and I really love each and every one of them.
I would definitely repurchase them all if it came to it and I could find them. Hopefully no more are discontinued.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed!


  1. These seem like they smell so good! I have a tiny bottle of the Viva La Juicy and love it! I wish you could share scents online! lol. I would love the smell the ones you have hehe.

    1. They do! And yay!
      I know right? It's so hard to try to describe the scents rather than just be like "Here, sniff this!" haha. (:

  2. Pure Poison sounds like my kind of perfume! I love the scent of oranges, so if that's the top note, I think I'm going to have to find this perfume!

    1. I've always gotten compliments (even from guys before) saying I smelled good. I would definitely recommend trying to find it somewhere and see if you like it. (:
