Some people can stick to one perfume for day and night. I envy them because I tend to think a little too much as to what perfume I should wear depending on the time of the day. But I have to admit that there are perfumes that work for me all day and night. Which ones? You’ll find out :)

VERSACE BRIGHT CRYSTAL
Donatella Versace got quite a few things right with this perfume. Firstly, the luminous bottle is a delight in itself. One of the most beautiful, graceful looking perfume bottles of the recent times. The fragrance is floral, distinct, sensual sheer, shiny, modern, feminine and lovely. I could go on but in short, it’s a perfect day scent.

DIOR MIDNIGHT POISON
Most definitely a leap in the right direction, although guessing Dior Hypnotic Poison outsells it by a mile! It lacks the strong theatrics of Hypnotic Poison and that’s exactly why I love it so much. It’s mysterious but not in the old fashion way. If you read the reviews, you’ll probably won’t bother trying it but take my word for it and try it. If you’re looking for something young yet feminine, sweet yet sensuous, playful yet mysterious then you’ll love this fragrance.
Also, if you understand perfume jargon(I definitely don’t) then this little description I got from www.fragrantica.com might help – “ The new 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.” Or you can just watch Galliano’s vision for the perfume translated into this commercial. I’ll have to be honest and tell you that the perfume isn’t exactly as dark and mysterious but it’s just right. Try and tell.

CHANEL COCO MADEMOISELLE
It was a love at first sniff. To me, it stands for sophistication, confidence and musky-floral delight. Ahhhh I don’t think I’m doing justice…watch this video and you’ll know why I love it so so much. I can wear it to a work meeting, brunch as well as dinner for two. Unfortunately my bottle is over and can’t wait to get one. People actually used to stop to ask what perfume I was wearing(ahhh modesty) and some of my friends loved it so much that they too became Mademoiselle loyals! It’s hard to not love it.
Brilliantly sensual, alluring, romantic and again it’s one of those perfumes that work beautifully at any time of the day. If you’re still doubtful about the scent then I’ll let Charlize Theron convince you.
To end, I would like to say don’t judge a perfume by its review as every fragrance works differently on different people. Let the daisies bloom on you.
