Hello there, We’re quickly getting closer to the festive season. As you might guess, I’m excited to feel the frosty air, drink mulled wine and spend the holidays…
Wood scents and heavy bottles, lids that click when you close the container and a scent that persists throughout the day and makes me feel in control of everything. These are a few of my favourite things! Can you relate? As you already know, I have a true passion for perfumes, especially for the heavy, winter ones. You know it, today we’ll look into finding the right perfume for you to empower and support you in achieving your goals!
We have to start by addressing the elephant in the room. Quite literally. This perfume won’t let you go away unnoticed. It’s very strong and spicy, being the best at leaving a scent trace.
It’s such a poetic scent and one of my favourites since two years now. You can actually notice how much I’ve used out of the 100ml bottle, not really pretty for the picture, but you can genuinely see how much I love it. Be really careful when you apply it though – for this, a small dose really goes a long way. It’s one of the strongest and most empowering scents I came across so far (trust me, I have owned a lot of different scents and perfumes are quite a hot topic in my family). If you love spicy and empowering scents, then L’Elephant is made for you. I feel it’s also underrated and not too many people own it, but that’s good news, right? I was pleasantly surprised to see it on Notino at such a great price – the airport price I got used to is definitely higher.

Tom Ford Black Orchid
This was waiting on my wish list since one year now and that’s a lot to wait for a perfume as unique as this. Its woody and spicy scent make me think of a strong woman thriving in her career. A woman entrepreneur who is leading her team and own path. It makes me think of independence and freedom, like you can achieve everything you put your mind to while wearing this perfume. This will be my signature for 2019, one of the many reasons why I should feel confident in my powers and head to success with no fear. The perfume persists for good eight to ten hours by only applying 4 puffs. I like to apply it on the back of my neck as well for a beautiful trace. My winter collection wouldn’t be the complete without Black Orchid and I heavily rely on it to make me feel as empowered as ever. Remember, it’s a New Year, we all can have a refresh – why not explore a new scent?

Dolce & Gabbana The One
This perfume has a rose scent to it, but it’s not sweet. It takes me back to my Sicilian birthday break in the summer – wind, salt and freedom. That’s how I would describe this beauty. This scent is clearly empowering and fit for an elegant lady. You can certainly wear this in winter, especially when you’re attending different festive events. It’s pleasant for people around you to feel – they’ll feel great around you and you’ll shine! I love to have it my collection as I love to alternate strong scents with a more ‘fragile’ scent. It’s one of my must haves! Give this beautiful Italian scent a try.
Lychee, Mandarin Orange, Peach, Bergamot
