Casual Everyday Perfumes

When I'm going out and want to feel casual or when I go to my usual informal places, I like to wear something non fussy - reserve the elegant perfumes for an occasion, and use 'everyday' perfumes for...well...everyday =P...
I feel this way we can feel the part. If you wear the same perfume everywhere then it simply won't be as special; not to me anyway. Treat perfumes as you would treat your clothes.
Here are 2 of my usual perfumes I'm fond of spraying on...

Fantasy by Britney Spears



I don't usually like celebrity fragrances. I don't judge perfumes based on whose name is imprinted on it, but by its scent. I do think it's silly for a lot of celebrities to claim scents as their 'own' when they don't come up with the whole potion on their own. And for this reason, I don't think you can compare celebrity scents to designer ones - they simply will not be able to compare!
Celebrity fragrances I find, are usually very cheap scenting and horrid. So when I came across this perfume by Britney, I was taken off guard by how much I liked it! It smells simply pleasant. Very sweet scenting - think candies, bubble gum, sweet burst of floral, more sweet candies... it almost makes me feel like I'm lost in a candy shop. It's a simple mix of feel good sweet smelling scents. Sweet sweet.... yes...it is. So if you like sweet things, try this.
The price tag isn't bad too. At 15£-20£ for 30ml... great for everyday use!

8/10 (compared to other celebrity scents!)


DKNY (To Go)


This is concentrated on its citrus scents, such as....oranges...lemons...limes...ylang ylang...sandalwood...jasmine...what else? I find this appealing particularly during summers. On its first spray, it gives you a sharp burst of that crisp citrus smell, which then settles to a delightful fresh smell...
Price tag is £15-£20 for 30ml.

7.5/10

You make me wanna go to a department store and try out many fragrances!!

by the way, silly question but when using perfume do you spray once or kind of a lot. some scents can fade during the day...

hehe i had a perfume post a couple of weeks ago. i've recently changed to christina aguilera's perfume, not because of the celebrity tag (it was a bday gift) but because i love how it smells. but before that i lived by Fantasy, its so sweet its amazing! xx

You should try as many as you can out. I find it fun analysing different scents...

And that's not silly at all. Hmmm... if I use Eau be Parfum, then it lasts longer than Eau de Toilette. For that reason, I usually pay a fraction more for an Eau be Parfum ^.^

And if it's a long day out, then I just carry the perfume with me to spray on again. I think that sometimes you can get used to the smell during the day that you're no longer aware of it but other people are...

I spray once in different areas...so I'd say a lot...
Spraying once in the hair, on your wrists and rubbing them together, back of ears, on your neck and sometimes...back of knees ^.^

Thanks for commenting!
I think I smelt Christina's perfume and I can't remember the exact scent but... it surprised me (in a good way). I really liked the bottle's design too...
