My Perfume Collection

Like most girly girls, I love collecting perfumes. With such a huge array of fragrances available with various brands and packaging on offer for a range of budgets, it's one of those things where you can never have too many!

L-R:
Lacoste Joy of Pink - £36.99 for 50ml EDT
I received this at the Lacoste Joy of Pink launch and it's perfect for Spring time, a fresh and invigorating scent.
Vivienne Westwood Naughty Alice - £50 for 50ml EDP
Beautiful fragrance and with gorgeous packaging too. The charm can be worn but I think it adds a certain something to the bottle.
Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Baby - £20.43 for 30ml EDT
A cute little perfume to have in my collection, this is a musky floral scent.
Miss Dior Cherie - £69.45 for 100ml EDT
Perhaps my favourite scent of all time, this perfume is fabulously girly and light. Katie Price's Stunning and Next Diamonds and are more affordable dupes.
Britney Spears Fantasy - £25 for 100ml EDP
A touch more musk than I usually go for, but I love it all the same. My fiance always comments on how lovely I smell when I wear this.
Balenciaga Paris - £60 for 50ml EDP
This is the most 'grown up' scent I own and I adore it. It lingers for a long time and makes me feel like a fabulous sophisticated lady!
Paris Hilton - £20 for 100ml EDP
A favourite of mine at age 17 and now a guilty pleasure at age 24, this is a sweet, delicious and cheap perfume!
L-R:
Marc Jacobs Daisy - £60 for 100ml EDP
I will never tire of this scent, it is perfection in a bottle!
Benefit Crescent Row: Garden of Eva, So Hooked on Carmella, Lookin' to Rock Rita - £30 each for 30ml EDT
I reviewed Benefit's Crescent Row fragrances when they were released last year and Eva has since become a firm favourite of mine and a handbag essential, I urge you to try it!
Givenchy Play For Her (pink) & Intense (purple) - £50 for 50ml EDP
Both are lovely scents with the Intense version having a slightly more musky note. Unique packaging too!
Liz Earle Botanical Essence - £40.35 for 50ml EDP
A very fresh fragrance with strong citrus notes, this is one to wear on crisp Spring mornings.
 I also have a mini Dior collection which I keep on my dressing table. Although the miniature Miss Dior Cherie and J'adore are now empty, the diddy bottles are so cute I've kept them to display. I definitely want to add a full size J'adore to my collection, such a divine scent!
I keep the majority of my perfumes in this big box on top of my chest of drawers so they're protected and easy to reach.
I know it's advised you keep all of your perfumes away from sunlight to prolong their life but Naughty Alice and Miss Dior Cherie have such pretty bottles I just couldn't resist setting these two out on top of my dressing table.

What's in your perfume collection? Any favourites you'd recommend?
