My fragrance wishlist

If you’re someone like me, who loves fragrances, but has the problem of perfumes not lasting longer on you, you will be searching for that one perfume that doesn’t vanish so soon. But thank me because I’ve managed to do some research and found some of the best scents (that I like) that also last really long.

Starting with the ones I want the most.

One Million – Paco Rabanne


This one needs no introduction. This one and it’s ladies counterpart was the best selling parfum last year and i’m sure it will be this year too. A men’s fragrance but one that smells heavenly on both women and men.

Lady Million – Paco Rabanne


The ladies fragrance from the million line. And it is as amazing as the men’s.

The lover – Gap


An amazing fragrance that’s spicy enough but not at all manly. It is a unisex one and lasts long enough but not as long as the million range. Definitely on my wishlist and I really hope to get it soon.

Black xs – women – Paco Rabanne


The perfume is as sexy as the advert for it. A very fruity long lasting fragrance. For men, i’d definitely recommend the homme one but it suits women too. The male version is longer lasing than the female version.

Play – Givenchy


An expensive parfum but a very good one. Not for everyone since it is very sweet but i use it when I’m already in a good mood. It adds to it.

Hypnose/Hypnose senses – Lancome

lancome-hypnose-senses-contest- lhyp_300

I’m not sure which one of these two i love but i do love one of them.

in2u – CK

4.58996253179E 13

After the death of my favourite perfume crave i found this to be really good.

Intense – St Dupont


The name says intense but it isn’t as intense as all that. It is a pleasant fragrance but not very long lasting. it should last about 5 hours on a cool day.

My Fragrance Collection

I am quite the perfume fan. Not a collector, but starting out on my collection. I started with just one single fragrance – the Escada magnetism . Then moved on the Davidoff Happy Summer, then got the Cool water and so on and so forth. Now I have a small but nice collection and I hope to keep adding to it.

How I started out on my collection was I couldn’t quite find a perfume that lingered on my for long. None of them really did and I kept searching till found escada magnetism. I outgrew it in a while and needed something else that was gorgeous. And the loop continued,

If I’m wrong about the notes of the perfume I’m sorry, the reason is that the sites don’t really give you information. And the two sites that I use ( and fagrantica) list different notes completely so I’m confused now.

Starting with the ones that I Have and then moving on with most want into the rest of the wishlist:

Escada Magnetism:


Launched in 2003 by Escada for women. The top notes are Leafy greens,  Basil, Freesia, Black currant and Plumberry. The Middle notes are Jasmine, Immortelle, Lily of the Valley, Blond Woods, Iris and Almond blossom while the Base notes are Amber, Musk, Cashmere Vanilla and Sandalwood.

I’m currently on my third bottle and I’m not purchasing it again as I’ve outgrown it. It’s now a little too strongly sweet for me.

Davidoff – Happy summer:


Now this one is a limited edition perfume. Wish i cry about because I really love it and I really want it but can’t have it because it doesn’t come anymore.

And I don’t completely want to rely on this site but these are the only notes listed.
