My Perfume Wishlist

I've been dying to get my hands on the following perfumes, some of them for their addictive scents and others just for the bottles! Stand-by fragrances include Chanel's classic Coco Mademoiselle, Dior's wildly popular Miss Dior Cherie, and Viktor & Rolf's bestselling Flowerbomb. YSL's Parisienne is slowly growing on me - the scent is definitely unique and stands out from the rest. I've yet to try Balenciaga's Paris, but how lovely would that bottle look on a vanity table!

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle

Smells like: "Sexy, fresh Oriental fragrance" that "recalls the irrepressible spirit of the young 'Coco' Chanel"

Top Notes: Orange, bergamot, mandarin, and Tunisian curaçao
Heart Notes: Morning rose, Italian jasmine, ylang-ylang, and mimosa
Base Notes: Indonesian patchouli, Haitian vetiver, Bourbon vanilla, white musk, opoponax, and tonka bean

Faces: Anouck Lepere, Kate Moss, and Keira Knightley (current)

Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne

Smells like: "The essence of a woman who is incredibly free-she is not from Paris, but Paris adopts her. She knows how to love, how to live."
"A grand floral with a woody structure, luminous even in its mystery", "the perfume of ultra femininity, warmed by the touch of the man who embraced her."

Top Notes: "Vinyl accord (evoking metal gloss and varnish)", cranberry, and blackberry
Heart Notes: Peony, damask rose, and violet
Base Notes: Patchouli, vetiver, musk, and sandalwood

Faces: Kate Moss

Balenciaga Paris

Smells like: "mysterious and fragile, yet leaves a lasting trail"

Notes: Violet, pepper, and mossy wood notes

Faces: French songstress and "strange beauty" Charlotte Gainsbourg

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

Smells like: "floral explosion", "full-bodied and opulent"

Top Notes: Tea and bergamot
Heart Notes: Sambac jasmine, orchid, freesia, and rose
Base Notes: Patchouli

Faces: Isabeli Fontana

Dior Miss Dior Cherie

Smells like: "the elegant woman, a blend of classic chic with a touch of whimsy"

Top Notes: Green tangerine and strawberry leaves
Heart Notes: Violette, pink jasmine, carmelized popcorn, and strawberry sorbet
Base Notes: Fresh patchouli and crystalline musk

Faces: Maryna Linchuk

I am curious about a few of these, also! I have Miss Dior Cherie, and I like the scent very much...Parisienne is quite pretty, but unfortunately, it gave me a headache :( I loved it, though! Balenciaga would be lovely to try as well...

Your perfume table would look so chic!

I looove Coco Mademoiselle... I wear it every day and wouldn't change a thing! I like the idea of having several scents to choose from, though!

I love Flower Bomb, while I absolutely don't like Cherie..but I admit that the advertising is adorable!
