splurge vs save on spring perfume

Spring is here and you are probably (like myself) bored of your winter scents, so I’d like to give you a quick tip if you’re sniffing through the shelves at the department stores without success :)


Latest beauty from Elie SaabRose Couture Edt. I’m not a fan of Saab perfumes in general as I find them quite strong, so this came as a very nice surprise. It has a lot of character yet settles beautifully and lasts for a long time, leaving a happy, fresh note of rose and spring behind. Don’t think of the rose as overpowering though, it’s there, but not in the usual way, it’s more subtle and gives plenty of room for the other notes too. 30ml €45


My favourite right now is, believe it or not, from Zara. It smells 100% of spring and makes me think of city breaks, shopping, outdoor coffee shops and it’s generally sweet but fresh, and works well both day and night. Also….it’s €13 for 100ml Aaaahhh;)
