Guest Post: Perfume Collection

Hello everyone, I’m Rebecca

I write a dreamy little blog filled with crafts, beauty and fashion called Rebecca Recommends

About me

I love:
romantic novels,
Mr Darcy,
(by I want to lick that man....)
baking pies,
50's fashion,
peppermint tea,
& romps in the countryside.

Sometimes I think I really should have been born in another generation, but then I remember online shopping…

I spend most of my time baking, crafting and wandering around Hampshire with my boyfriend Oliver. He’s kind of lovely.

You can read more about our adventures on my blog- feel free to stop by! : )

In the mean time, Amanda Mae has asked me to review my perfume collection for you:

Here are all my perfumes. I didn't intentionally buy them to match; they were all gifts from lovely people :) I know most girls like to have a signature scent, but I think it's great to have a few for different occasions!

1. Dolce & Gabbana- The One, for her.

My Mam gave this to me because she didn't really wear it. I absolutely love it! it smells really clean and fresh and I wear it on a daily basis.

2. Chanel No. 5

There's a reason this perfume is an absolute classic. It's gorgeous! you only need a tiny spritz and it lasts all day. I wear it when I'm in the mood for some vintage glamour. It's been adored by women for the best part of a century, and it just smells like a 1920's dance hall- amazing!

3. Prada Escentual

This perfume reminds me of my best friend. We first discovered it on a Christmas shopping a few years back, and we loved it! I'll probably buy it forever because it reminds me of the fun we had that day. It smells a little bit like wood smoke, and I'm going to spray it on my wooly scarves this winter :)

4. Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker
This is a really feminine floral fragrance, and I use it if I'm going on a date. It's also a delicate enough smell to use on linen- and I recently used it to make my drawers smell nice.

As a side note, I recently picked up this little bowl from Urban Outfitters :) it's perfect for storing my earrings and I'm thinking of starting a collection of vintage saucers from charity shops.
I arranged all my perfumes on my dressing table as a form of decoration-

What do you think?




  1. I am obsessed with Armani Mania...such a beautiful and fresh fragrance. I love your collection. :)

  2. I've never smelled any of these but they all sound amazing!

  3. Prada - I'm dying to try this perfume, and the bottle designing is amazing!

  4. Chanel No.5 certainly has amazing smell. You have nice collection of perfumes. Have you tried any other perfume?
