REVIEW: PARFUMURILE MELE PREFERATE / MY FAVOURITE PERFUMES

Post available in English and Romanian
Nu obisnuiesc sa cheltuiesc mult pe cosmetice, dar nu ma pot abtine atunci cand vine vorba de parfumuri. Iata si colectia mea, in ordinea preferintelor 🙂

 

I don’t usually spend a lot of money on cosmetics, but I can’t help myself when it comes to perfumes. Here is my collection:

1. HERMES – EAU DES MERVEILLES

20131226_220957

Cu Eau des Merveilles am facut cunostinta acum vreo 5 ani si de atunci e singurul parfum care nu mi-a lipsit din colectie. E fix opusul unui parfum clasic, are un miros special, e imposibil sa il uiti sau sa il igonori. De fiecare data cand il port am senzatia ca pornesc de pe malul marii intr-o calatorie rapida spre stele. E versatil si se potriveste vara la fel de bine ca si iarna. E elegant, fara sa copleseasca. Portocala, lamaie, piper roz sau cedru – toate se simt in mireasma acestui parfum. Ambra e insa cea care il transforma in ceva cu adevarat special. I first smelled Eau des Merveilles about 5 years ago and I’ve had it in my collection ever since. It’s not a classical perfume, it has a very distinct smell, impossible to forget or to ignore. Every time I wear it I have the feeling that I’m traveling at the speed of light from a warm beach to the stars. It’s perfect for the summer time but also for the winter time. It’s elegant but not overwhelming.  Orange, lemon or cedar – these are some of the notes. But the amber gives this fragrance a special touch.

2. PRADA – INFUSION D’IRIS EAU DE PARFUM

20140211_215138

Le multumesc fetelor de la Sephora care mi-au oferit o mostra din acest parfum anul trecut. L-am indragit de atunci si, la inceputul acestui an l-am primit cadou. A intrat direct pe locul 2 in topul preferintelor mele. Este un parfum discret dar puternic in acelasi timp. Ma duce cu gandul la zilele placute de primavara si poate de aceea am ales sa il port inclusiv intr-o zi extrem de friguroasa. Pe langa iris, ca si Eau des Merveilles, Infusion D’Iris are in componenta portocala si cedru si emana acelasi aer de eleganta, fara insa sa epateze. I want to thank the girls from Sephora that gave me a sample of this perfume last year. It was love at first sight and now, I’ve received it as a gift. It’s discreet but strong at the same time. It makes me think of spring. Besides iris, like Eau des Merveilles, Infusion d’Iris has orange and cedar in the background.

3. GIVENCHY – VERY IRRESISTIBLE

20131226_221731

Din gama Givenchy Very Irresistible am incercat prima data varianta clasica. M-a cucerit pe loc. Acum folosesc versiunea Sensual. La baza, cele doua versiuni sunt extrem de asemanatoare. Versiunea L’Intense isi respecta numele. Este mai puternica si persista mult mai mult. Trandafirul este vedeta acestui parfum, care, desi floral, are o aroma extrem de indrazneata, fara sa treaca in categoria parfumurilor dulci. I’ve tried the classical version of Very Irresistible, but now I’m using the Sensual edition. They are pretty much the same, as you can tell L’Intense is a stronger version that lingers longer on the skin. The rose is the star of this perfume, but even if it’s a bold floral fragrance, it’s not a sweet perfume.

4. CALVIN KLEIN – BEAUTY EAU DE PARFUM

20131226_221442

Tot in Sephora – Raiul Parfumurilor, am incercat prima data Beauty. Se ofereau mostre si nu am ratat ocazia sa il incerc, la cateva luni dupa lansare. E un parfum delicat, senzual si extrem de subtil. Crin, din nou cedru si iasomie sunt printre notele acestui parfum cald. Diane Kruger, una dintre actritele mele preferate e imaginea acestui parfum.

Tot din gama CK am avut acum ceva timp si Obsession. Am fost cucerita pe loc de parfumul extrem de senzual. Aroma lui e coplesitoare, doua pulverizari sunt pe ajuns. Altfel, risti sa ajungi o perfumerie ambulanta. Cu siguranta nu e un parfum potrivit pentru birou, ci, mai degraba la evenimentele speciale. M-am despartit repede de el si asta pentru ca mama s-a indragostit iremediabil de el, asa ca i l-am facut cadou.

I’ve also discovered CK Beauty in Sephora – The Heaven of perfumes. They were giving away samples and I got one, a few months after it was launched. It’s a delicate perfume, sensual and very subtle. Lilly, cedar, and jasmine are some of the notes in this very warm perfume. One of my favorite actresses, Diane Kruger is the face of this perfume.

Also from the CK like I’ve tried Obsession. It’s a mesmerizing perfume, bold, strong and overwhelming. You don’t want to spray too much, because you can become a walking perfume stand. I haven’t had this perfume for long because my mom loved it, so it was my gift for her.

5. HUGO BOSS – FEMME

20131226_221407

E un parfum clasic, nu poti da gres cu el. Modern, dar in acelasi timp delicat, feminin si romantic. This is a classical fragrance. You can’t go wrong with it. It’s modern, but at the same time delicate, feminine and romantic.

6.  CAROLINA HERRERA – ON ICE

20131226_221325

Sticla inedita nu are cum sa nu iti atraga atentia. E un parfum “la gheata”, si, dupa cum ii spune numele e potrivit pentru zilele calduroase de vara. Aceasta varianta a fost o editie limitata, aroma sa e definita de accentele citrice. You notice this perfume immediately because of the ice cube bottle. It’s a cool perfume that is very suitable for the hot summer days. This was a limited edition with citrus notes.

7. NINA RICCI – LOVE IN PARIS

20131226_221032

Nu poate fi altfel decat un parfum romantic, cu note de trandafiri, iasomie si bujor. E cald si senzual in acelasi timp. This is a very romantic perfume, with rose and jasmine notes. It’s warm and sensual at the same time.

8. GIVENCHY – PI

20131226_221514

Inca un parfum Givenchy prinde topul preferintelor mele. Desi este vandut ca un pafrum pentru barbati, Pi poate fi purtat fara probleme si de o femeie. Cum de altfel este si cazul Terre de la Hermes sau chiar si Eau des Merveilles. Pi  este un parfum intens, pe care prefer sa il port mai ales iarna. This is another Givenchy perfume in my favorites. This is a men’s fragrance but honestly a woman can wear it with no problems. The same goes for Terre d’Hermes and even Eau des Merveilles. This is a very intense fragrance that I mostly wear during the winter.

9. LUSH – KARMA

20131226_221111

Karma l-am primit intr-una din cutiutele Pink Box si a fost o descoperire interesanta pentru mine. Asta pentru ca nu incercasem pana acum un parfum solid. Pentru ca oricum sunt indragostita de produsele lor si pentru ca Lush nu testeaza pe animale am fost convinsa ca o sa ma impac bine cu acest parfum. Si nu m-a dezamagit. L-am purtat cu mine peste tot si se vede pe el 🙂 Cel mai mare avantaj al unui parfum solid e ca poate fi transportat fara probleme in avion in bagajul de mana sau in cel de cala. Nu exista pericol sa se sparga. Este o aroma unisex pe care iubitul meu o adora.

Daca tot am ajuns la capitolul calatorii, eu nu mai plec in mini vacante fara Travalo. Este un minispray reincarcabil, numai bun de luat in geanta. Se incarca direct din sticlulta de parfum dar ATENTIE! nu e compatibil cu toate sticlele. De exemplu, eu l-am luat cu gandul sa il incarc cu Eau des Merveilles, dar din pacate nu se potriveste cu sticluta Hermes. Nu face nimic, nu regret achizita, am ales sa port la mine CK Beauty. Nu am avut probleme cu el, nu a curs in geanta si nici nu s-a evaporat.

I’ve got this perfume in a Pink Box and it was a very nice surprise. It was my first solid perfume and I was sure that Lush, a brand that I love (mostly because they don’t test on animals) will not disappoint me. As you can tell,  I’ve carried this perfume with me a lot. It’s perfect for travelling. It’s a unisex scent that my boyfriend loves.

And since we’re talking about travel, I have to tell you that I have on me all the time my Travalo. It’s a rechargeable mini spray, that fits in any purse. You charge it right from the perfume bottle, but be careful, not all of them match. For example, I couldn’t spray in my Eau des Merveilles. But that’s ok, I don’t regret buying my Travalo. I use it now to carry with me my CK Beauty. I haven’t had any problems with my Travalo it didn’t spill and it didn’t evaporate.

Si, pentru ca tot suntem la capitolul arome si parfumuri nu pot sa nu mentionez deodorantul BU Free Spirit pe care il fososesc cand sunt in mare graba si am nevoie de un aer fresh. And, since we’re talking about perfumes I can’t mention my trusty deo, BU Free Spirit. I use it evertime that I’m in a hurry.

20131226_221346

La fel de placut e body spray-ul Ice Musk de la Boots, care imi aminteste de … dulciuri 🙂 I also own a bottle of Ice Musk from Boots, it has a very sweet smell.

20131226_221248

Si, pentru ca niciun parfum nu ar avea farmec fara un antiperspirant de nadejde va incurajez sa folositi cu incredere Nivea Invisible. Nu am avut probleme cu el pana acum, marele plus e ca nu pateaza nici hainele albe, nici pe cele negre. And, ladies please don’t forget to use an antiperspirant every day. My favorite is Nivea Invisible. It doesn’t leave any stains on white or black clothes.
