Eau De What?

Most women own some sort of perfume. Whether it be the best of the best, or the stuff you get from Tesco. After all, it is your scent, and goes hand in hand with the way you look and conduct yourself. I'm not one of these people who is snobby about perfume. As long as I like the smell I don't care if it be £10, or £100.  It's funny, if you think about it; we buy a smell in a bottle to make ourselves attractive, I guess. When going to a department store such as Debenhams, House of Fraser, or John Lewis ect, I have to nip to the perfume section just to try on yet another perfume. Although I rarely buy any, I have become quite the fiend when testing them out on my wrist, or if not on card samples.

Eau De Toilette and Eau De Parfum can all be rather confusing, but usually the price tag will explain it all. Although you probably know this, some may not. Eau De Toilette is a scent or oil which is diluted with around 80% water, therefore is weaker, cheaper and doesn't last as long. On the other hand, Eau De Parfum is a higher percentage of scent and less water, which vice versa, makes it stronger, pricier, and lasts a lot longer.

Although I don't often buy perfume, and don't have thousands of bottles sprawled around my dressing table, I have my favourites, which I would almost call a 'Perfume Bucket-list', if you will. Here are my four favourites, I thought I'd share with you.
