I'm in love with London....
It was my first time in this awesome urban, metropolitan city but I never liked any other city more than I liked London. I visited London in March when officially the city is "bedecked with early spring blooms". Unfortunately, it was pretty cold & it almost snowed one day! Spring is coming in really slow this time around in London. But that didn't stop us from going around & have a fabulous time!
I love perfumes just as I love London. Perfumes are a part of me & my personality. The are an 'invisible' fashion accessory to me. They define who I am. I have always been into buying perfumes regularly. Most of the times I use one fragrance at a time. I want to do a separate post with my favourite pictures of London but I want to start by appreciating 2 fragrances which keep me smelling sweet & fresh every day & evening I spent in London. These are:
Per Una Gabriella
Launched in 2011 Burberry Body captures the iconic spirit of the brand in a striking sensual way. It smells luxurious & woody - just the way I like it. It's fresh, sweet, classy, elegant, warm-floral, sophisticated. The best thing about it is that its long lasting & comes out bold on 'me'. Model, actress & Victoria's Secret angel Rosie Huntington Whiteley endorsed this fragrance. I couldn't help add gorgeous photos of her. The bottle is long, skinny & multi faceted, almost jewel like. I really liked the packaging which is feminine & elegant creating a feel of pure luxury. I mostly wore this fragrance at evenings when I was all dressed up for a fabulous dinner or a musical at Royal Albert Hall!
I came across Per Una Gabriella while I was shopping at Westfield. I noticed this immediately at Marks & Spenser's fragrances section with the lovely packaging! First off this can make one of the best gifts. It comes in almost cheetah-like print gift box. The bottle is almost round and chunky. It has the same cheetah print 'scarf' around its neck making it one of the prettiest packaging. The fragrance is a beautiful citrus & white floral notes over a background of rich musk aroma. This fragrance is vibrant & glamorous! I wore this at daytime while I was discovering London.
Both these fragrances add a little extra glamour & fun to my days & evenings in London. What a coincidence both of these fragrances are UK brands! I'm still enjoying these back home where spring is in full bloom. These will surely add to the beautiful memory that I have of London.
I can't wait to be there again…
