I've had a number of requests for a perfume post. Being a low maintenance kind of girl I've never actually purchased a new perfume, my scent collection is an accumulation of charity shop finds, hand-me-downs and presents.
|This is my collection:|
The Elizabeth Arden Mediterranean was my Mum's and reminds me of her, Lamb by Gwen Stefani, Hugo Boss Red, Lush's Karma and Chloe were all presents, S2 by Shilpa Shetty and the Roberto Cavalli scent were charity shop finds.

I was very excited to discover a shoe box crammed with essential oils at a jumble sale last year and enjoy creating my own fragrances with favourites such as patchouli, sandalwood, black pepper, bergamot and frankencense.

My favourite shop bought perfume is Lush's Karma. I adore the scent as a shampoo and was thrilled when the lovely LaaLaa sent me the solid stick perfume as part of a generous gift. The 1960's hippy, patchouli vibe sums me up to a tee.

Being a child of the 1970's I wore Charlie as a teenager. Revlon relaunched it but it never smelt as good as the original.
What's your favourite fragrance?
