My Autumn / Winter Scent
There seems to be a bit of a perfumey theme on my blog currently, what with my November guest post being all about fragrance, but with the season quickly progressing, a blog post on my favourite Autumn / Winter scent has to be done.
You may think that a red plum & freesia scent doesn't sound exactly like it will be perfect for the colder seasons, particularly with the blooming picture of a flower on the front, but for some reason I've been reaching for this almost every day, and it is Victoria's Secret's Pure Seduction - a fragrance mist which I picked up on my Summer travels to California.
I'm a big lover of really sweet, candy-like scents as well as really sharp and sort of musky scents. I would say that this scent falls more into the former category however it has floral hints in it. I suppose you could describe it as sharp and exceedingly sweet and almost citrusy. But I think I've just thrown three opposite words into one there. No surprise, I cannot describe scents! (who even can?) It is described as a 'refreshing formula infused with conditioning Aloe Vera and calming Chamomile' but provides no further description of the scent.
I would say that if you're a person who is reluctant to leave the Summery scents behind but wants something a little more Season-appropriate, then definitely go down to Victoria's Secret and give this a whiff. Having said that, I'm not one to limit myself with scents according to Season and for the most part I simply wear what I feel like wearing. Who even says what Winter smells like?
So that's my signature scent set for this season. I'm hoping I don't run out of the stuff because it is gorgeous. Let me know what your favourite scent for this season is - I definitely need to purchase a new perfume since it's been months since I last did!
