It’s been quite a while since I reviewed any fragrance on the blog, so to make up for that, here are 7 of my current favourite fragrances. Most of the fragrances I like are fruity-floral with a sensuous base and notes of amber, berries and vanilla. Of course, perfumes are a very subjective thing with each person having distinctive choices. What one might love, another might not like. Keeping that in mind, here are my 7 current favourite fragrances….
Here are all my current favourite fragrances:
- YSL Cinema EDP
- Bvlgari Omnia Indian Garnet EDT
- United Dreams Stay Positive EDT
- United Dreams Love Yourself EDT
- Estee Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge EDP
- Victoria’s Secret Bombshell EDP
- Victoria’s Secret Noir Tease EDP

One of my favourite fragrances, this is a limited edition of YSL Cinema EDP – a sparkling one with little gold shimmer particles. It is a very sensuous fragrance (which is the kind of fragrance I prefer). I first bought this bottle in 2006 and have loved it since. While this sparkling version might not be available, I think the normal EDP is.
This is a wonderfully warm, exotic, sensuous fragrance that I love. It is a rich, woody-floral fragrance which comes in a very pretty bottle characteristic of the Omnia range. With top notes of mandarin and saffron, heart notes of Indian tuberose and osmanthus and base notes of Indian woods and amber, this is one fragrance you should try out.
The fact that I am on my third bottle of United Dreams Stay Positive says a lot about how much I love this fragrance. This is a very fresh yet sensuous fragrance and one that, for some reason, reminds me of Indian weddings on a cool winter’s day. Not only does it smell wonderful, it is super affordable too!
Somehow, I have never liked fragrances with distinct notes of rose in them. Till recently. United Dreams Love Yourself and the Estee Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge are two rose based fragrances that I love. This one is a sweet floral – though not a sticky, cloying sweet – and the combination of rose and amber notes in this are what appeal to me. Again, a very affordable fragrance and great for everyday wear.
Check out the video to know the story of how and where I first smelt this fragrance. I am obsessed with this super sensuous, alluring fragrance which has a complex mix of floral, creamy and musky accords. I haven’t done a detailed review of this fragrance as yet so let me know if you would like me to.
Nearly all of the fragrances from Victoria’s Secret smell amazing. One of my favourites used to be Very Sexy (the gift set is reviewed here) and recently, on my trip to New Zealand, I bought Victoria’s Secret Bombshell and Tease Noir. I would describe Bombshell as a playful, fresh yet seductive fragrance and it is a bit sweeter than the rest of the perfumes in this list (with the exception of Love Yourself). Again this is a fruity-floral with on a creamy base of vanilla orchid.
Everything about this fragrance – from the white-floral and fruity-musky notes to the adorable bottle with black lace, vintage-style atomiser and fishnet pattern on the back is LOVE! It is sensuous but in a fun, playful way pretty much like it’s name – Tease.
So these were my current favourite fragrances. Do any of these feature on your favourites list? Now that you know the kind of fragrances I like, let me know if you have any recommendations for me to try out.
