Perfumes for the Week Days 1-10

Rebecca over at Hello Pretty Bird (do yourself a favor and go read her blog -- some of the best writing on the interwebz) is doing a "Scent of the Day Challenge" in which one wears a different perfume sample everyday for a month, and I thought I would participate.  Her choices are lots of indie fragrances, which are far more interesting than the standard perfume samples I have.  I'm also horrible at describing fragrances, so I'm only going to say if I liked the scent or a quick something about it because I thought that would be terribly helpful if you are looking into one of the perfumes I wore one day.

Day 1: Burberry Body Tender -- I'm kind of meh one this one.  I don't think it's for me.
Day 2: Killer Queen by Katy Perry -- I like this one, both on first spray and the dry down.
                                        It's kind of warm and spicy.  The packaging looks like a huge jewel.
Day 3: Dolce by Dolce and Gabbana -- I like it.  It's a pretty floral.
Day 4: Marc Jacobs Honey -- I only kind of like this one.  It's a fresh floral, to my nose.
Day 5: I ❤ NY by Bond No. 9 -- This is a light floral that I quite like.
Day 6: Ralph Lauren Romance -- This one faded really fast on me.  I wasn't particularly
                                        fond of it anyway.
Day 7: Versace Bright Crystal -- I liked this, but it was gone by the end of the day.
Day 8: I forgot to wear anything.
Day 9: Elizabeth Arden Untold -- A light floral that I like.  The bottle is really elegant.
Day 10: Gucci Flora Gardenia -- I definitely like this one.  It's described by Gucci as a fruity floral.

So there are the fragrances I tried out the past 10 days.  I am going out of town next week (on Thursday), and will be gone for several days, but I'm going to try to take samples with me to keep up with the challenge.

More fragrance samples to come in the future!


  1. Killer Queen kind of reminds me of Flowerbomb! :) What a fun idea - great post!

  2. Yay, glad you joined in! I think the only one of these I have a sample of is Killer Queen - your description is pretty spot-on. Warm and spicy. Maybe I'll wear it tomorrow... if I can find it in my pile of samples.

  3. I knew it smelled familiar. I often try a perfume and think, that smells like some other perfume, but I can never identify what it is. Thanks for reading, Brianna!!

  4. I would describe my pile of samples as having grown into a mound.

  5. Ooh, a great variety of fragrances- thanks for the mini reviews. I'm curious about the Katy Perry one :)

  6. I really like that one! I have a little rollerball of it that I got from Sephora that is great for traveling.

  7. Great fragrance picks! I like the Dolce by Dolce and Gabana and the Marc Jacobs Honey! I have a collective haul on my blog if your interested!!

  8. Loved the post and your mini reviews. I love Gucci and Bvlgari perfumes :-)

  9. I've never owned a Gucci or Bvlgari fragrance, but I know I've got some Gucci perfume samples waiting for me to try. Thanks for reading!!
