...i am a princess on the way to my throne...



Anyone who has been around me for five seconds knows my obsession for perfumes. Body sprays, eau de toilettes, parfum, scented oils, whatever: I'm hooked. Yesterday, however, I shocked the perfume world by trashing all but a few products in my toiletries stash. Names like Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren, and Thierry Mugler went flying around the room in reckless abandon as I shifted bottles and made my decisions.

The ones that I am now wearing are as follows:

Victoria's Secret Amber Romance.
I have the body gel, body lotion, body cream, body scrub, body spray, and eau de toilette. This warm, creamy, amber-vanilla scent brings me comfort whenever I need it and it's great for fall and winter.

Victoria's Secret Endless Love.
Finally, my quest to find products that smell like Herbal Essence has ended! I have the body lotion, eau de toilette, body scrub, and shower gel. It's light, lovely, and perfect for spring.

V'TAE's Lemon Rose.
I have three bottles of the aromatherapy lotion and three bottles of the perfume, and it has one of my favorite signature scents for summer. It smells exactly like freshly-squeezed lemons and soft roses. It's perfect. This scent is all the more special to me, because some incredibly generous soul sent me two bottles the lotion and perfume as a gift. I don't know who did it, but I absolutely love them for it.:)

Bath and Body Works Country Apple.
All they sell in this creamy, apple scent is the bath gel, body spray, body lotion, and creamy hand wash and I have them all. I adore this scent, and it's another one perfect for fall.

Victoria's Secret Dream Angels Heavenly.
What can I say? This is one of my favorite scents ever! It's a soft vanilla musk, but the vanilla is not at all heavy. It's a very comforting scent that I love to layer. I have the angel body wash, the body lotion, angel mist (which is equivalent to a body spray) and a tiny bottle of perfume. I am definitely putting the large bottle of perfume on my Christmas list! This is absolutely one of my favorite scents ever and I will be wearing for a very long time, no matter the season.

Victoria's Secret Body by Victoria.
Let me be clear: I've never much liked clean scents, but this one has won me over completely. It's a clean, watery floral that makes me feel super clean and feminine. It reminds me a lot of Vera Wang, a scent I love but just can't afford (it's twice the price of Body by Victoria). It pairs very well with Bath and Body Works White Cherry Blossom. I have small bottles of the perfume, the body lotion, and bath wash. This has definitely become my scent for spring and summer.

Christian Dior's Miss Dior.
I have literally been wearing this perfume since I was five years old, and I still have the small sample bottle I got from a friend's mom at a sleepover. I also have a larger bottle and the body lotion, but it seems like they have changed the formula for it doesn't smell the same as it used to. I like to wear it when I want something of pure elegance.

Origins Fret Not.
When I want a blast of tangerine, this is the one I reach for! I have the perfume and body lotion, and it's wonderful after a hot bath. I pair it with Origins Salt Suds body wash, which smells absolutely delicious. Frankly, I will use anything from Origins. It's my favorite place ever for bath products, but I just can't afford it on a regular basis.

I have several others I decided to keep, but they don't stick out at me at the moment. As you can tell, I've become a *huge* fan of Victoria's Secret scents. I almost never forgave them for discontinuing their signature perfume Victoria, which I hope to find on Ebay one day. It was my favorite at one time, and I still have half a bottle of Victoria lotion that I am slowly nursing. Other VS scents I want to get are Breathless and Vanilla Lace collections. I'm also curious about the new Magnolia Blossom that's coming out at Bath and Body Works in April, and I'd love to add more of the White Cherry Blossom to my collection.

Perfumes I've depleted from my stash are Christian Dior's Dune, Christian Dior's Pure Poison, Bobbie Brown Beach, Ralph Lauren Blue (perfume and body gel), Paul Sebastian's Design (I adore it, but I've worn it for years and need a break), Thierry Mugler's Peony Angel (*very* expensive stuff but I'm just not going to wear it right now), Thierry Mugler Angel Innocence (very similar to the original Angel but not quite as strong), a small bottle of Calvin Klein's Sheer Obsession, and a small bottle of CK's regular Obession. There are tons more, and I don't know what I'm going to do with them. That said, I can't bring myself to throw them out. Most of them are 3/4 full. Right now they are sitting in a big pink VS bag, just looking pretty. Oh well, I'm sure I'll think of something!

But you see? It's almost as obsessive about my scents as I am my cross-stitch stash *grin*.

I'm feeling: chatty
