I am always on the hunt for a new scent and as much as I adore expensive perfumes and am dying to spend an afternoon in Jo Malone again, I do also think that there are great finds at lower price points as well. I have heard a lot about New Look perfumes, one of my former colleagues told me that Blush was a dupe for Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, which is insane, and my cousin was wearing After Glow and it smelled so good I borrowed it from her all week. Just before my sister's wedding I went to buy a perfume to wear throughout the occasion so I could always associate that scent with the wedding, because it is a pretty monumental event. Of course, me being me, I didn't even open this perfume until I was back in London a week after the wedding. Typical. 

I literally tried every single New Look perfume on one area of my body on the day of choosing and then walked around in town for an hour, had a sniff to see which one I liked best and then returned to New Look to purchase the one I think smelled the best on my skin. That is really important to me because even though you can love how something smells initially if it doesn't last or changes, which it can with your body chemistry and whatever creams/oils you put on underneath, then it would be a waste of money. I really want something that lasts without being too overpowering but also has a really nice scent throughout the day

Surprisingly, I am not one for floral scents so I was really taken aback that Petal Crush was the one I picked in the end. It is described as being "an intense oriental-floral fragrance with oud and Damascus rose, hints of vanilla and patchouli and dark woods". I think the vanilla is what draws me to this scent and the woodsy undertone/base note. It's floral and fresh and pretty without being too flowery and noxious. Basically, I highly recommend New Look perfumes, I think the bottles are pretty, you get a great amount of product and they actually last. Thank you for reading, I bought the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer today and I am so excited that I finally found it in my shade. I have a social engagement tonight so I really hope it is as good as everyone says it is and doesn't let me down. I would love to do a video comparing the Tarte Shape Tape to the Conceal & Define if you would like to see that let me know in the comments below. Also, please share your favourite perfumes or just what types of scents you go for and why? I would love to know.  This post is not sponsored and everything was purchased with my own money. Take care. 

What perfume are you loving at the moment?
