I've never been overly adventurous with fragrances - once I moved past the teenage phase of celebrity scents, I found a perfume I loved and stuck with it. I was always liked to hear the compliment: 'you smell like you!' Recently, I've grown more confident and added a 'stronger' perfume that I can wear on special occasions and nights out. I still feel a bit weird when I put it on, because I'm so used to wearing the other!
Flora by Gucci - daytime/everyday ($90 30ml)
Flora by Gucci is a lovely floral scent with hints of citrus to spice things up. I like to use the Eau de Toilette because it's a bit less intense than the Parfum. The Flora range now features a few different variants including the Eau Fraiche, Garden Tuberose, Garden Gardenia, and Garden Magnolia. These are part of the Gucci Garden Collection based on the three flowers 'of the Flora pattern'. I haven't tried these, mostly because I love the original so much.
Flora by Gucci is perfect for those who favour flora scents!
Miracle by Lancome - special occasions/evening ($130 50ml)
I was originally given this as a sample from a friend who went crazy in a Duty Free somewhere, and I absolutely loved it. I would describe this as 'flora with hints of spice'. Lancome describes it as "bursting with the zest of brilliant Freesia, peppered with Ginger and serenely balanced by warm Amber notes." It's a bit stronger than the Gucci - both the scent and the fact that it's an EDP, so I feel more comfortable wearing it at night - it would feel a bit too much to wear everyday.
This is perfect for those who like a bit more of spiced scent coming through the floral.
