| 2020 | 02 | 20 | perfumes. the full lot |

I got my first perfume when I was 8 (Jean Paul Gautier - Red Jeans) and I was hooked.  I sprayed it all the time. I loved the moment I'd walk into a room and people would comment on how good I smelt.

from then on i was determined to find my signature scent. i hadn't quite narrowed down the profile i preferred but by then I knew i just had to find it.


now, age 27 I  know who has made the shortlist.

issey miyake you lucky bitch.
[oh and molecule 01 because rude not to]
[maybe also rihanna rebelle]
[salt caramel possibly because its nice]
[kahaia]
[black opium]

i swear. i swear that's it. 6 fragrances.

just got to use all of these up...
that's not to say i don't like the others. each one has a time and a place and i genuinely enjoy wearing them all. but i'm at a point in my life where i'd rather have fewer choices and less things.

it's really odd seeing the full spread of fragrances which have defined my past few years. there are a couple missing from pre 2018 (daisy, oh lola, hollister, DKNY gold...) but it's mental to see them all in one place. 59 bottles.


also as i mention them in the empties under this category... candles.

i have.

| Yankee Candle | Large | Mango Peach Salsa | £23.99 | Yankee Candle |
| Yankee Candle | Medium Jar | Vanilla Cupcake | £19.99 | Yankee Candle |
| Stoneglow | Velvet Gardenia & Tuberose | £21 | John Lewis |* [this was technically a gift]

£64.98

i love candles. but you are literally burning your money aren't you?
