GOURMANDE 🍨 FRAGRANCE CAPSULE

SunshineSands
Here’s a list of my favourite gourmande perfumes of all time! They’re pretty affordable, designer, very wearable. What are your favorite perfumes? I love discovering new ones! Paco Rabanne - Olympéa A cheerful, more fruity gourmande. On the bright side but not exactly “young”. The base is still salty vanilla cashmere but layered with crisp apple. It’s the freshest and most laid-back gourmande scent I own. Can be worn every day. Not like any other Paco Rabanne you’ve ever smelled. Jean Paul Gaultier - La Belle Sticky gourmande 101 - very straight forward notes of sweet vanilla, apricot and honey. You smell like an actual appricot cake. Uncomplicated, relaxed greatness. Elie Saab - Girl of Now Hybrid base notes of almond cream and tonca bean with top layers of pear and pistacchio. The pistacchio in this is so energizing. It brings a new vibe to the whole category imho. Very interesting scent that remind me of summer afternoons in the city. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Black Opium Eau de Parfum
My first love! This is a fragrance with bold projection. Deep and spicy, it hits you from the open with coffee and vanilla and dries down a little more white floral. Massively sexy and borders on Oriental for sure. Perfect for late winter or a night out. GUERLAIN - Mon Eau de Parfum
A thin gourmande. Still sweet but with an Iris and Lavender vibe to it. I would call this your every-day gourmande. A very likeable skin scent that smells like sweet vanilla and lavender. Jean Paul GAULTIER - Scandal for Women Eau de Parfum
Ouff! this one is a deep, complexe and sensual scent. Projection that will grab attention so I would be mindful of when/where you wear it. Smells like honey layered over orange blossom and spiked with green floral/jasmin. There’s definitely a powder to it but its not at all obnoxious. I’m completely addicted to it. Perfect for when you’re generally up to no good 😏... DOLCE&GABBANA - The Only One Eau de Parfum
A sophisticated and tidy gourmande you can wear any time. The base notes are coffee/chocolate and I want to say orange blossom. Definitely some floral in here but it is crisp. A super put-together and calculated fragrance. BOSS - The Scent Private Accord for Her Eau de Parfum
Speaking of chocolate and orange.. This is very bright and captivating. Has a fresh/clean character to it but also smells like a delicious choco-orange treat. It’s sweet without being “sticky”. Wear any time, anywhere - she’s not fussy. gisou - Honey Infused Hair Perfume
I love the smell of honey in the shower and in my hair and this is 100% that honey smell. It’s as if LUSH’s “It’s Raining Men” had an older, cooler sister we never knew about. Smells like honey royalty.

YSL - Black Opium 🖤
YVES SAINT LAURENT - Black Opium Eau de Parfum My fiancé got me this perfume as an early birthday present & I absolutely LOVE it! To be honest, I wouldn’t have ever thought to buy it on my own but I am so happy he got it for me. It smells so amazing & you really only need one small spray & it lasts ALL day! I have been getting complimented like crazy every day I wore it so far! It has a very sweet scent, almost like vanilla but also with subtle flowery notes! It’s such a sexy smell! You guys need to try it out!

Not for the Average Woman 👑💙
Okay, now anyone who follows me knows that I am a huge sucker for packaging.. and that’s definitely how YSL pulled me in on this one. I do love the way that the traditonal YVES SAINT LAURENT - Black Opium Eau de Parfum smells, but this bottle and this new fragrance bring something else to the table. With the traditional notes of coffee and vanilla from the orginal perfume this is a scent you’ll recognize, but the new elements of the YVES SAINT LAURENT - Black Opium Eau de Parfum Intense might have you sniffing twice. This perfume also has more orange blossom notes, while the original sticks more to the white flower notes (so this one does have a bit of a cirtrus kick to it). But it also has notes of Absinthe, which give it an incredibly unique smell. After watching reviews I was concerned that the black licorice notes would be too strong, but personally I barely even notice them. This perfume is perfect for the woman who loves the basic pleasures in life, but is willing to be a bit more daring and bold. If you love warm, robust, and spicy frangrances this one is for you! This being said it is on a steeper side price wise, but I find that the eau intense formula lasts 8+ hours on my skin! Will I be repurchasing - 120%, I can see this becoming my signature scent for sure! I love the smell and how long it lasts, my only fear is that because it’s limited time I won’t be able to get a second bottle before mine runs out! Might have to pick-up another one at the next VIB sale 🤩

Perfume Tour - A Fragrance for Every Mood
Perfume is hands down my favourite beauty category and has been forever! I remember falling in love with perfume as a child while sorting through my mom’s collection of beautiful, delicate bottles. One of my favourite things about perfume is that to me, it is the best memory. I will smell a certain perfume and be transported back to a specific moment in time and the feeling & emotions that can evoke...is priceless. When I was younger, I preferred the sugary sweet scents (like all the Britney Spears ones, Aqualina Pink Sugar, etc) but as I’ve gotten older I still prefer warm scents, but I love more spicy versions. Here’s a little tour of some of my favourites: YVES SAINT LAURENT - Black Opium Eau de Toilette - I know, I know - who doesn’t wear this one?! But it’s just so good. With notes of black coffee, white flowers, and vanilla, I find this one so warm & sexy - it’s perfect for a winter date night! GUERLAIN - Mon Eau de Toilette - key notes of lavender, bergamot, and vanilla. This one is incredible! It’s warm & sweet but not quite as heavy as Black Opium. It smells fancy, expensive, and classy. To me it would be perfect to wear on your wedding day! Maison Margiela - ’REPLICA’ Beach Walk - key notes of bergamot, heliotrope, and coconut milk. This is perfect for the summer, it’s warm but still has a light freshness. The only downfall is it doesn’t last long! CAUDALIE - Soleil des Vignes - this is like Beach Walk but a bit heavier and more of a sunscreen smell (which I LOVE) but lasts longer. I wore this a ton in the summer! Maison Margiela - 'REPLICA' Coffee Break Eau de Toilette - key notes are coffee accord, milk mousse, and lavender. This one is so unique! It smells warm and clean and...comforting? If that makes sense! Maison Margiela - REPLICA Whispers In The Library - key notes are pepper essence, tonka bean, and cedar wood. This is perfect for chilly Fall/Winter nights! It’s way too heavy to wear in warm weather IMO. It’s feminine and masculine at the same time (it’s marketed as a unisex fragrance) and lasts forever on the skin. gisou - Honey Infused Hair Perfume - I think everyone knows and loves this scent! It smells like warm honey with a bit of a white floral added in. This one can at times give me a bit of a headache, but if I use it lightly I do enjoy it. So can you tell that I have a theme?! I love warm & spicy scents and some of my favourite notes in perfume are bergamot, vanilla, patchouli, coconut, coffee, and lavender. I also clearly have a Replica fragrance obsession🙈 A few fragrances that I’m hoping to add to my collection are: - Guerlain Coconut Fizz - Replica By the Fireside - YSL Black Opium (repurchase) - Guerlain Mon Guerlain (repurchase) - Narciso Rodriguez NARCISO - Carolina Herrera Good Girl #CheriePartner

Top 5 Perfumes Every Woman Needs 🤍
Perfumes are like memories in a bottle to me; they take me back to the specific event or chapter in my life. These 5 fragrances are my top 5 perfumes I ever had (and I have tried A LOT). If you love floral, powdery, soft & fresh scents, check this edit out! ✨ DIPTYQUE - Do Son Perfume Oil Roll-on Limited Edition A recent discovery and by far the best perfume I ever smelled. Diptyque Do Son Eau de Toilette is honestly the most beautiful scent I've ever come across. It has quickly become my signature scent. It's a mix of floral tuberoses and other fresh flowers. gisou - Honey Infused Hair Perfume A bit of an odd one in my top 5, but the Gisou Honey Infused Hair Perfume is in my opinion a musthave in your perfume collection. I wear this hair perfume layered with Diptyque Do Son, Chloé Nomade, or on its own. It makes your hair smell like an exotic flower mixed with sweet honey. It's one of those floral scents that has a bit of a bite to it, making it last extremely long in my hair. I've never come across anything like it, so I would highly recommend giving it a go. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Libre Eau de Parfum Since I love floral, powdery & quite light scents, I always struggle with finding an evening scent. Most of them are overly heavy or sweet, giving me a headache wearing them - not cute nor sexy for a night out. However, the Yves Saint Laurent Libre perfume is evening scent perfection in a bottle. With notes of lavender essence, orange blossom, musk and musk accord, YSL Libre is strong yet fresh & floral. It will be powerful enough to make a statement on that cute guy sitting next to you on a bar, but not too strong it will give you nausea. CHANEL - GABRIELLE CHANEL Eau de Parfum Chanel is the embodiment of a classy, successful & stylish woman to me. So whenever I have an important event or meeting to attend, it is the Chanel Gabrielle Eau de Perfum that I wear. It's Chanel's newest fragrance, and also my favorite of their assortment. It makes me feel like a bad boss bish. It has notes of exotic Jasmine shimmers with the fruity green notes of ylang-ylang, fresh and sparkling orange blossom, and tuberose. Chloé - Nomade Eau de Parfum Before discovering the Diptyque Do Son scent, Chloé perfumes were my go-to signature fragrances. I'm in love with all their perfumes, because of the beautiful mix of floral and powdery notes. The Chloé Nomade Eau de Perfum is a floral scent with notes of oakmoss, freesia, and mirabelle liquor. It has a bit more bite to it, making it last longer than typical light and floral perfumes. It's the perfect scent for any Summer holiday trips. And every time I wear this fragrance, I get asked what scent I am wearing - especially from male uber drivers for some reason. Hope you enjoyed my top 5! #cheriecreator

Amazing Grace perfume
I have a love for perfumes...if someone tells me” oh you smell so good” that’s it... that’s the biggest complement you can give me... I love smelling good. I also like trying new perfumes... This one is a must if : You are into a classic feminine scent. Smells are hard to explain always but this one remains me of that clean flower scented bath soap that you use when you shower. It gives you the sensation of something clean, fresh with soft muguet blossoms and musk. I will say that the duration on the smell is a medium. It last but not all day. Also some perfumes are more for summer than winter or the other way around well this one is really good for both. Musk makes its more winter and fresh and flowers for summer. So it can be use all year 😉 The product was kindly giving to me for free for testing purposes. 💗

DOLCE&GABBANA - Dolce Eau de Parfum 🎶 Key Notes~ Neroli Oil~ They harvest the oil from a bitter orange tree. In perfume this oil has a Soothing effect on moods. White amaryllis~ Adds a woodsy hint to perfume. Papaya Flower~Adds A fruity floral smell to perfumes. 📦Packaging~ This perfume bottle has a elegant design with a small white flower on top as the stopper. 🚨Interesting fact~ On researching I read that the black bow on the bottle conjours the thought of white shirts and black bow ties, paying homage to the early dolce & Gabbana cat walk shows. Also read that the white flower on top pays tribute to Sicilian customs, crafted to portray the marzipan sculptures seen in traditional Sicilian confectioners. 💭My Thoughts~ I got this as a gift from my husband. I love the crisp/fresh floral notes it’s a strong scent but not overwhelming, it’s very elegant. Perfect for everyday use or date night. It runs from $76.00 -$122.00. I definitely think it’s worth the price and would get this perfume again and recommend it to anyone that loves floral smelling perfume. #cheriecreator

Clean Fragrance that I Have Been Looking For
Clean Fragrance that I Have Been Looking For
I have been waiting for this product for so long. Skylar's clean fragrance is now part of my self-care routine. The monthly delivery keeps my scent collection fresh without any hassle. Who doesn’t like to have some sweetness and romance for this spring? My favorite scent is Boho Bloom. It’s floral and fruity but not too sweet. The scent works well with my skin. I love the delicate blend that totally lights up my summer. The scent Fresh Vibes is also very nice. It’s woodsy and floral. This scent is sophisticated and pleasant for spring summer.

This is the @elizabethandjames
This is the @elizabethandjames nirvana black in mini deluxe size roller ball. I got this as part of a duo with the nirvana white at Sephora. This was their last one at my Sephora and I copped it when I saw that Nirvana White (and the rest of their perfumes) were being discontinued. WHY?!?!? . I didn’t really like Nirvana Black at first because I thought it was too strong. It sort of gave me a headache and the scent seemed a bit too sultry for me. But, IDK if its my weird mood swings lately (bc you know its that time 🤫) I have been reaching for this perfume A LOT. It really gives a fancy schmancy vibe and I feel all grown up lol like a Ⱳ Ơ Ɱ Ⱥ Ɲ if you know what I mean. LOL . It hasn’t replaced my Nirvana White and Diptyque Philosykos yet but I def have been enjoying it. I put it only on my wrists and elbow crease area because if I put it on behind my ears, I get a major headache. So for that reason I would recommend this to you if strong scents are your thing. I’d rate it 3/5. But honestly. Please. Come back. Like. Just. Come back to the market. . The notes: ⭐︎ Top: Violet ⭐︎ Heart: Sandalwood ⭐︎ Base: Vanilla . What are your HG perfumes? Any recommendations?

One day I’ll own my very own Jo Malone full size cologne but until then, I have this beauty. I fell in love with a Sephora sample and have dreamt of splurging on my very own bottle since. I feel so beautiful wearing this and always save it for a night out with my babe!

Favorite Perfume | Versace Yellow Diamond 💎
I think out of all the perfumes that I have posted about, this is my favorite. I discovered this perfume when I was working at Marshalls in 2014. This is my fourth bottle and yes I will be buying a fifth :) Out of all the perfumes I own, this is the one I reach for the most. I always get compliments when I wear this fragrance (remember, ever person’s body chemistry is different. Something may smell great on one person and smell totally different on another. I have tailored my collection knowing what will react well with my body chemistry. ) The notes of this perfume are citron, pear sorbet, neroli, bergamot, nymphea, freesia, orange blossom, mimosa, amber wood, palo santo and musk. This bottle retails for $60 at Sephora, but I found it for $30 at TJ Maxx.
