Perfumes for all budgets

Giorgio Arrmani Si
My lovely Mum saw this perfume on my wishlist a while back and decided to buy it for me for Christmas. This is definitely the most luxurious and amazing smelling perfume I have ever owned and will take pride of place on my dressing table (not that I have one!!!)
I would describe Si as a sultry grown up scent, it has quite a deep woody smell but with a hint of fruitiness which I love. As it settles on your skin you can smell the vanilla notes and it lasts all day. I would definitely recommend this perfume for a special gift.

Calvin Klein Downtown

Calvin Klein Downtown- Gift Set on sale £23.00
I was wondering through Debenhams on Boxing Day and for some reason this perfume caught my eye on the sale shelf, I smelt it and fell in love. It is very similar to Si as it's fruity and woody but it has a slightly fresher almost spicy scent. It sounds strange but the description of the perfume includes pink peppercorn which you can subtly smell. 

Zara Black

Zara Black- Available in stores
Zara Black is the perfect handbag perfume as the bottle is so dainty and only costs £7. I always pop this in my clutch for a night out, it is a lovely girly scent but is slightly spicy. Obviously it doesn't last as long on the skin but you don't have to be as sparing with the sprays!!


  1. I've never actually smelt any of these so I'll have to get my nose down to Debenhams :)

  2. I've just bought myself Down Town in the sale and I love it!!! The Zara perfumes all smell divine too. I don't think I've ever smelled an Armani perfume before but that one sounds lovely! My favourite more expensive perfume is definitely Dot by Marc Jacobs!


  3. I love perfumes by Zara, at that price, I can enjoy them without feeling guilty for spending to much
