Personal Perfume Guide

Hello lovelies! Today I am stoked to be writing about my beautiful perfume collection and creating a guide for all of you to use. I admit it, I’m a perfume addict. I have so many perfumes that an entire shelf in my closet is dedicated to just them. I don’t know exactly when it started, but it could be because my Mom used to have a bin full of designer perfumes that I would always sneak into and try on when I was little. Sounds about right.

Over the years I have collected perfumes, and I’m not talking Bath&Body Works, VS, or BodyShop body sprays, I’m talking pretty, tall, shiny glass bottles of perfume. Something about them is just so beautiful to me!

So I’ve decided to create a guide based on the bottles that I have; don’t fear there’s a ton to go around.
