What I would buy if I won the lottery; make my own perfume

What I would buy if I won the lottery; make my own perfume

Do you guys remember those perfume sciency kits that Argos used to sell back in the day? For a good 3 years I begged my entire family for one very Christmas and birthday, but did I ever get it? NO, because for some reason they thought A; I’d never use and B; I ‘d mess up the house. So I think you can all imagine how excited I was when I found out that I can, in fact, make my perfume as an adult, FINALLY.

I have always wanted my own unique scent, that way when people smell an item of mine they can recognise that it’s Ivis’ or when I walk past/ into a room people can know it’s me. Imagine just having your one smell, that’s unique to you, that when people smell it, it reminds them of you and only you! Since I started getting buying perfume in high school, the goal for me has always been to discover my own scent and I still haven’t yet found mine, so clearly when I found this it was a sign from God telling me that my expensive ass needs to make my very own fragrance.

And to top of the experience, your name will be forever recorded next to famous Floris clients, and your fragrance formula recorded for future re-orders

Summer scents to buy

Summer scents to buy

Am I the only one that has a different scent for every season of the year? I smell different every spring, summer, autumn and winter! Please, someone, tell me I’m not weird for doing this??? For me summer weather calls for a lighter and fresher take on perfume, why should I smell like the musks and the ouds that is so dark and so ghetto for summer?? There is literally no better time to embrace the best of citrus, fruity-florals, and sheer takes on new perfume than spring/ summer.  This didn’t start intentionally, It was just a tradition in high school for me to go to VS every summer and get their 3 for £24 deal so each bottle would last me a season and It took me a good 6 years to realise this loool. But the older I have gotten the more I have shied away from body sprays and moved onto perfumes. My mum got me proper perfume in year 9 before we went on holiday and I think it was Gucci bamboo and to this day it remains to be one of my favourite scents.

I’m not saying you should change your scent during summer, it’s not exactly mandatory but personally, I like it when certain smells or perfumes bring me back to certain moments in my life or bring back certain memories when I spray them, hence the fact that I switch it up. I like spraying something and being reminded of winter 2018 or summer 2019, you feel me?

Perfume shopping can be so overwhelming (and so far, 2020 has been exactly that. but let me not start otherwise I won’t stop), there are so many options to pick from so like most people you’ll probably sample about 4 until they all smell the same or you no longer have space on neither of your arms (lool I know we’ve all been through it) so you choose from those four. And that’s okay because we’re all human. Buty that’s why God brought you here today because I can tell you exactly which 4 to sample so you leave your home smelling luxurious every day of the week! So, how do you pick the best perfume? It sounds obvious, but look out for notes that you’re drawn too. Here are some of my summer faves;
