Perfumes just makes me happy, like a mood lifting, soul stirring feeling. I have turned into quite a collector and today i thought of sharing it with all of you.
As for my favorite, for the day, it has to be Diamonds by Armani and as the sun goes down, i totally love Midnight Poison by Dior.
Diamonds was created by Thierry Wasser of Firmenich and the fragrance is classified as gourmand-floral. The top notes are litchi and raspberry, the middle notes – freesia and lily of the valley, and the base are vetiver, cedar wood, patchouli and vanilla. Great for sunny mornings, very fresh and feminine.
The Dior's poison is opening with citrus notes of mandarin and bergamot to the rose heart, and patchouli, amber and French vanilla in the base. The creators of Midnight Poison are Jacques Cavallier and Olivier Cresp of Firmenich in collaboration with Francois Demachy of LVMH. This is the most seductive and mysterious scent ever. Though the opening notes are a little overwhelming, the dry down is absolutely amazing. The dry down is like creamy rich vanilla, very elegant and powerful!! But this perfume is not for the faint heart, as you know, it truly is a Poison.
This post is very personal, as i have deep connections with all these perfumes. They all individually reflect a stage in my life, memories, feelings.
I hope you enjoy this post!! Cheers!!

High waist shorts are the in thing. Though im not sure if every woman can flaunt sooo short shorts with the butt cheeks peeping out. The proud high waist denims sitting in your closet for years can show its face now, in the new form of destroyed shorts. Pair them with a silk shirt and platform wedges, and voila!!
The traditional sexy school girl has yet again evolved, but into this innocent, nerdy, Paris based school girl.
The cliche school girl plaid check is a thing about the past. Here comes the solid vines and blacks with knee high socks, conservative but hell stylish. The oxford flat lace up shoes are big this season. Comfort + fashion , how can one ask for more. Gone are the days when fashion only meant sky high heels, today its about breaking the rules, going nerdy, flaunting a little edge, being comfortable, but all with a hint of elegance. Add a cute hat to your outfit to add fun.
Here are some pictures from ASOS , that sums up all i just said.
If you are daring enough, try a pair of nerdy glasses. Well, who knew fashion could be in being the new nerd on the block.
