Pretty bottles and gorgeous scents. Every trip to a department store is an excuse to breeze past the perfume counters, testing a different one each time. Currently coveting Manifesto by YSL, its smells delicious; reminding me of Candyfloss and all things sweet. These are a few favourites that are currently in use, with some obvious classics like Chanel and Dior mixed in. Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess is a favourite, with a summery scent in a shimmering bottle, but unfortunately this was a limited edition and changes each year! Choosing a perfume can be very personal, depending on your preferences. Whats your favourite?
