Bitter's Top 5 Picks: Perfume

I hope that you are all embracing the Christmas spirit but let's not forget the true meaning of Christmas, that is the birth of Jesus Christ.

This post goes out to all the friends who have gone Perfume hunting with me at Myer or David Jones because I'm sure that they can relate to what I'm about to talk about.

1. Dior- Pure Poison

Dior has recently released a new line of fragrances, titled Poison. It's predecessors namely being Jadore and Miss Dior (which comes in an extremely cute mini line as well), now what do you think of when you hear the word 'poison' and as a hint think Fairy tales, for those that watch Once Upon a time this should be easy.
TAA-DAA a very cute, and original bottle design. The perfect and enchanting combination of bergamot, jasmine and sandalwood and if you're a lover of tea then I think this scent is for you as it has a lasting tea-like smell. For those that are interested in Dior's latest fragrance it comes in other ranges however this one is just my favourite/ the only one that I actually like.

2. Vera Wang- Princess

This is the perfume that I recently bought Sweet as part of her early birthday present. I think one of the best selling points about this perfume, apart from it's scent is its bottle. It just oozes the word cute with a touch of elegance and the name says it all, Princess- it is after all every girl's childhood dream before they realise the unlikelihood of that happening. My only critique is that it's not for the mature woman, unlike Dior's Pure Poison or Swarovski's Aura
3. Swarovski- Aura
I think that this is Swarovski's first ever fragrance but I must say that they have hit jackpot because I cannot get enough of this stuff. What I love most about this perfume is it's universality, it's suitable for young adults and even mature age women alike because it doesn't have the overly sweet smell as those targeted for younger women or that intense and powerful smell that irritates your nose and the bottle is also very pretty <3

4. Marc Jacobs- Dot

Towards the end of my HSC I went to Myer to treat myself for my hard work by buying something that I've been eyeing for a while. If you're young and like fruity, sweet fragrances then Marc Jacobs is for you especially when his bottles look like this:

5. Ralph Lauren- Big Pony Collection
I love Ralph Lauren- their clothes, sunglasses and fragrances. Whilst the bottle itself is big (i.e you get more for your $$$), the bottle isn't that pretty (yeah I like the whole package) it's kinda reminds me of those alcohol bottles that are seen in movies but nonetheless good brand, good perfume!

Well that rounds up my top 5 perfumes out on the market at the moment and also has anyone tried buying online, I'm kinda scared about it either breaking or getting a fake. Finally one more thing if you've ever bought perfume from a drug store/pharmacy can you please tell me about your experience because every time I pass by Chemist Warehouse they seem to always have ridiculously marked down designer perfume. For Christmas it was a sale- up to 85% off RRP and that got me thinking about the authenticity of their goods but then again I don't think I will ever buy their products seeing as they never have what I want.
