2 New Perfume Loves

For Christmas I was lucky enough to receive two new perfumes which have quickly since become some of my favourites! Of course, they are both light, girly floral scents because that's just me all over but in my eyes can you really ever have enough? 

Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede is a beautifully light, feminine and floral fragrance. It's very understated and not at all over powering which I love about it. This also means that it's perfect to layer with other fragrances to make your own unique scent. Jo Malone is a luxury perfume brand that I've been lusting over for the longest time so I'm so happy to have this in my collection. The bottle is so sophisticated and classic looking and not to mention the packaging this came in was absolutely stunning!

Jo Malone describes it as .. 'The essence of charm.  Peonies in voluptuous bloom, exquisitely fragile.  Flirtatious with the juicy bite of red apple and the opulence of jasmine, rose and gillyflower.  Mingling with the sensuality of soft, blush suede.  Luxurious and seductive.'

Valentino Valentina is also a gorgeous, soft, floral scent. Compared to Peony and Blush Suede it is a bit deeper, which means I usually reach for this more in the evening. This last so well on the skin, one squirt lasts for the whole evening and people always compliment me when I wear it. I'm in love with the design of the bottle, just looks so beautiful on my dressing table!

Valentino describes it as .. 'With attitude, sophistication and unexpected characteristics, the bouquet of Valentino blends an irreverent Italian floral oriental in which each facet reveals a paradox. Calabrian bergamot is a hymn to exuberance and freshness, shaken up by the insolence of white Alba truffles. In their trail, jasmine, Amalfi orange blossom and tuberose celebrate radiant beauty, while being offset by the rebellious delight of wild strawberries. Finally, the nobility of cedar is seduced by the captivating sensuality of amber... Valentino marks out a solar, unexpected trail, classic yet modern'

Sorry if my perfume descriptions were too vague/repetitive.. turns out trying to put how something smells into words is actually kind of hard!
