My August 2020 Perfume Blind Buys


I am into perfume nowadays more than ever before. I saw one review and got hooked. I used to buy only before when I needed to replace my current perfume or I got fed up with it. Due to the current situation now, we can't test any perfume nowadays like we used to. There's no available testers around, you need to ask for it which I don't really like. I prefer like before that I can freely move and test anything without someone following me around. It's just sad that I am into perfumes only now that there's no freedom to try them. I have so many perfumes I want to smell now but it will take a while to be able to do that again. That's why I blind bought alot last month and these are the perfumes I got.

Mostly are raved about alot in youtube and some are just my own preference. I usually wait when there is a sale, promotion or they are heavily discounted when I got them. I normally buy them at ICI Paris XL and bol.com website. They have monthly or sometimes daily promotions so I did save alot from most of these perfumes. I also tend to go for perfumes that I love the packaging and if the notes are the ones I know I love. I never read notes or even knew about them before not until I saw someone mentioning them.  Then I started looking for it and knew I should look for perfume that have the same notes because I know I would surely like it. I am more into woody and musky scents. I don't go for too sweet or gourmand type. Anything with Bergamot, Sandalwood and Vanilla I know I would certainly love since they are the main notes I love in a perfume, I noticed.

Tom Ford Eau de Soleil Blanc Eau de Toilette
This is the perfume that triggered my love for perfumes. I was just looking for a new summer scent and I remembered I had a tester of it but the edp version. But when I looked for the price of it, it is just too expensive for a 30ml. Then I watched a lot of reviews about it and learned that alot of people prefers this edt version instead. So I just went for this since the price is much more acceptable for me to purchase. And I am so happy with my decision, this smells so lovely! This just uplifts my mood. I always look forward in using it because I adore the scent. It is very summery and it just reminds me of tropical holidays. You smell the citrus notes and the coconut which is very pleasant for me. A perfect summer scent for sure that I will always have in my collection. I'm glad I chose this over the edp since when I found the edp tester of this and tried it again, I much prefer the edt. The edp is much stronger/heavier and almost headache enducing for me. I did love it at first when I first tried it that's why I remember I loved a Tom Ford perfume and really stucked in my mind and remembered right away when I was looking for a new scent.

My rating
Longevity: 2/5 this does not last long which is sad
Projection: 3/5 I still smell this under maks for a few hours after spraying but not sure if other people smell it on me

Paco Rabanne Olympéa Eau de Parfum

This was a youtube made me buy it scent. This is so much raved about and known for one of the most complimented scents. I had a deodorant of this before and I did love it. But unlike the TF perfume, this does not uplift my mood. I'm not excited wearing it and I have only worn it once from the moment I got it.   It has a very unique and quite strong scent. The ginger gives it a special kick and the salt makes it unique as well. It is a special summer scent that is not your typical coconut scent but a bit too complex I guess for my nose. It is not relaxing enough for me to be able to enjoy it. I can't explain but this is not my kind of scent that I can say a "me" scent. Not my style I guess. I will still give it a shot until next summer but if I won't like or use it, I will just give it to my family. Because we are wearing mask now, I'm not sure if people would really like this smell on me and get compliments from it. I will try it next summer and we shall see then.


My rating
Longevity: 4/5 pretty long lasting
Projection: 4/5 Since it has a strong scent, I feel like people smell it if they are around me
Scent: 3/5 I'm not into much with this scent

Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum

This was also a youtube influenced blind buy. I am so happy that I got this, one of my fave for sure. I saw it was so heavily discounted at bol.com that I went for it. I got the 100ml that's why I was happy to snap it. This makes me feel confident whenever I use it, the lavender gives it a special twist and together with the vanilla, this smells heavenly for me. A perfume for confident, elegant lady for sure. This would be my forever scent! Perfect for autumn to winter scent since it is quite heavy and creamy scent. I smell this throughout the day which I never had with my old perfumes before. This is a very unique but in a beautiful way that you don't smell with anyone. I would try more from this house since I adore this scent so much that I feel like I would love all their scents. This is a high quality and elegant scent. I feel like you will smell expensive with this scent.


My rating
Longevity: 5/5 very long lasting. It lasts for days on clothes!
Projection: 5/5 I feel like people will know you are there when you have this on. Signature scent worthy!
Scent: 5/5 My forever scent! Love it so much

Giorgio Armani Sì Fiori Eau de Parfum

This was love at first sniff. I had a sample lying around and the moment I tried it, I fell in love instantly and I knew I had to have it. The moment I smelled it, I knew I wanted this as my signature scent at work. This is work appropriate for me because it is not a heavy scent. Very comforting almost for me. Alot of people consider this as a wedding scent which I see why. Very feminine, unoffensive scent. This is not as popular as the original one that's why I like it since I won't smell this with everyone. This could be a year rounder kind of scent. They just made this the perfect mix of floral notes and vanilla that is so soothing for my nose. After having this, I think I love anything with black currant perfumes from now on as well. This has the great balance of musk and creamy notes that is not too girly or sweet. 



My rating
Longevity: 5/5 very long lasting. It lasts for days on me and my clothes! I can smell this through my mask as well
Projection: 5/5 I feel like people will know you are there when you have this on. Signature scent worthy!
Scent: 5/5 Love the perfect balance of floral, musk and creaminess.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum

This so popular on youtube and always in the top 10 best seller of all the webshops I have looked that's why I wanted to try it. But this is a misbuy for me. I don't like the scent at all. It has a vintage and mature feel to it that I don't like. I feel like this will suit my mother more. It does not give me joy and it is a headache inducing kind of scent for me. Not my ideal smell, it has a soapy smell but not something I like to smell personally. I regret buying this but hopefully my mom would love this. I feel like chanel scents are not for me. When I tried a tester from the Chanel No. 5, I disliked it so much. It was too strong for me so I guess how they formulate their perfumes is not doing my nose any favor. Not my kind of scent, unfortunately.


My rating
Longevity: 4/5 long lasting. I can smell this whole day
Projection: 5/5 I feel like people will know you are wearing this and you can smell it through the mask. 
Scent: 1/5 not my kind of scent

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

And last and definitely not the least, this amazing perfume. I really regret not buying this for as long as I did. The first spray, blew my mind. This is almost out of this world kind of scent for me. A powdery scent with an oomph certainly. I have never smelled anyone wearing this which is strange since this is one of the most popular scent around. This is what I want to smell like everyday. Feminine but with a fierce side. I imagine a confident woman wearing this but also a bit flirty. A scent that takes me to a different universum. One of a kind for sure! Perfect balance of floral, musk and patchouli. This is my kind of scent, modern, musky, feminine and with a kick/twist. A forever scent for sure and a signature scent for me. I want my kids to remember me with this scent. 


My rating
Longevity: 5/5 very long lasting. I can smell this for days on my clothes
Projection: 5/5 People will know you are wearing this and you can smell it through the mask. 
Scent: 5/5 the "me" scent I am looking for

I am really glad I am into perfumes now since they give me so much joy and gives me confidence almost and puts me in a good mood. They can bring back memories and also bring you to places that you have not been before. I am just glad that most are a great buy/match for me. I am so happy I found my signature scents. I was never satisfied with my perfumes before. My old ones were not longlasting at all which was always a disappointmnet because I want to smell myself when I use a perfume. I never read or watch reviews when I bought my old ones before and now I watch everyday reviews. They just give a a different happiness compared to other things like makeup that I have. I look forward spraying them everyday and it is fun to choose which ones to wear. There are different perfumes in every season (even your mood) and I can't wait to find the perfect ones for me. I would surely try and review more so watch out for it.
