This post is going to be about my perfume collection. The last post I did about my perfume collection was such a long time ago. :) This post is also a shout out to Summer at Nothin' fancy. Really. - I blame her for all the money I had to spend. :) I had a deal with myself to use up the perfumes I had, before buying any new ones... but then I read this and that post and she got me hooked on Cheap Smells. I ended up ordering 5 perfumes, 5! Dear lord... :D But I really don't regret buying them at all. So... let's get to them shall we?
The first perfume I got was Hard Candy. I was sold on this perfume the minute I saw the bottle. It's just so beautiful - a very tall and sturdy bottle with a gorgeous black design on it. I bought it just because Summer described the scent so well and as soon as I heard caramel and sweet I knew it was the right perfume for me (well at least I hoped it was). When I got it and smelled it for the first time I was blown away. It's just a divine smell. The base notes are caramel, vanilla, cedar and cashmere musk, the middle notes are passion fruit, rose and jasmine and the top notes are pink pepper, rhubarb and white tea. I'm really bad at describing scents and notes so I can't tell you which notes I smell in it and which ones I don't, I just know it's a lovely sweet scent with a bit of a spicy twist at the end.

The next perfume I got was Jessica Simpson's Fancy. This perfume also attracted me because of its sweetness and of course the bottle looks lovely too. I feel it has an antique, rose gold look going on. :D I was also really impressed with this perfume when I first smelled it. The base notes in this perfume are vanilla, sandalwood and amber, the middle notes are caramel, almond, jasmine and gardenia and the top notes are red berries, apricot and pear. This perfume smells sweet to me but you can also smell the fruits in it too. A gorgeous scent. :)

The third perfume I got was Iceberg original fragrance. I wanted to try out this perfume because it was supposed to be a woody, powdery, spicy fragrance... and it is. The base notes are suede, vanilla, musk and patchouli, the middle notes are pistachio, violet, almond, mimose and peony and the top notes are red berries, bergamot, pear and coriander. It is a very special perfume. It smells very spicy to me but I didn't like it on me. I do however love it on my husband. I feel like this is more of a mans perfume and I suits him very well. I also really like the bottle and how the notes are written on it. :)

The last but definitely not least perfume that I got is Versace Crystal Noir. For a long time Dior Hypnotic Poison was my #1 perfume but this one is just on a whole other level. It is just an incredible scent. I discovered it last year when my brother bought it for his girlfriend and I couldn't get it out of my head (or out of my nose). The base notes are amber, sandalwood and musk, the middle notes are coconut, peony, gardenia and African orange flower and the top notes are pepper, cardamom and ginger. It's such a unique and spicy fragrance. I just adore it. I hope they never stop making it. The bottle is also really nice - a little black crystal. :D

I also bought one more perfume at Cheap Smells but I really didn't like it - it was the Marrah Carey M perfume (15,76 € for a 30 ml bottle). It came in a lovely purple bottle with a butterfly-shaped cap. But I just didn't like the smell. It wasn't awful or anything, it was just a scent I smelled a thousand times before, nothing special... so I gave it to my mom for her birthday and she loved it (she's not very picky). :D
All in all I had a great experience with Cheap Smells. The perfumes are original but cheaper, shipping costs are great and everything is packed so safely. I'll be buying from them again.
