Hello NKB Fam,

I hope everyone is having a blessed and lovely holiday. I can’t believe the year is already winding down and coming to an end, it seems like only yesterday when I first took a plunge and uploaded my first blog post. I am very grateful for the continued support. 

I have to be the first to admit this year has been a whirlwind of happy and sad moments. Its amazing how much someone can grow in just a year. However I am not the only one growing and evolving, so is the world, from hypnotizing fragrances to life changing skin care the world of beauty has also been on the ups and downs. 

I know this, not only from my own love of all things beauty but from reading some of the most amazing blogs, following the big magazines online and from sharing my thoughts about products with like minded people. I was reading PINK PEONIES BLOG and I came across her BEST OF BEAUTY SERIES and I found the inspiration to share some of my favorites from 2015. Allure, Glamour and Elle do it, why cant we, lol. 

Without further ado, let me jump right into it and share some of my Favorite Fragrances from 2015 and why I love them. Some of the items i’ll be sharing on the BEST OF THE BEST SERIES have been reviewed on this blog and some  I hadn’t had the pleasure to. 

I believe a woman’s perfume or man’s cologne says a lot about that person. I think it says a lot about their personality, I think if you understand fragrances you can figure out whether someone is bubbly or mysterious just by the way they smell.

I’m into exotic and oriental fragrances, I believe they are tenacious,  exquisite, sensuously rich, supremely sensual and intense. I want a fragrance that not only turns heads but I want one that will linger in your memory forever. 

Two things make women unforgettable, their tears & their perfume -Sacha Guitry.

♥ Givenchy Dahlia Divin I love this fragrance, its one of those perfumes that had me at hello, maybe its because Alicia Keys is the face Dahlia Divin so she just exudes a grounded yet feminine scent. The Dahlia Divin woman  is   timeless, chic, very strong woman, but also edgy and funWhat’s there not to love, the Jasmine scent makes it ever so delicate and feminine. Its warm, raw and strong. I love sexy fragrances such as the Dahlia Divin, its not lingerie and gutters sexy but ‘dressed in a man’s button down shirt and nothing else kinda sexy’.

♥ Black Opium I know what you are all thinking, you think this is one of my favs because of the hint of coffee and vanilla in the perfume and you are right. I have to be honest and say this was one of my most used fragrances this year. Its highly addictive and seductively intoxicating. The vanilla makes it sweet,  This makes it an extremely sexy, sophisticated & alluring scent, whilst keeping it mild. 

As I was saying earlier you know a lot by the types of fragrances very woman chooses. The Black Opium Perfume also has Jasmine in it. Jasmine evokes memories of summery evenings and gentle breezes, lifting the spirits, relaxing the body and dissolving emotional barriers. I feel comfortable, strong and oh so Feminine. 

There’s not greater feeling than when you get that “you smell good, compliment from people”. You’ll definitely be turning heads when wearing this fragrance – it’s my signature ‘date night’ scent.  Oh, and I adore the black and rose gold details on the bottle.  Simple, sleek and so glam.

♥ Carolina Herrera Gaaaah I had to save the best for last, from the time mum bought this for my 21st birthday (I think it was my 21st) I haven’t  been able to get past it. I adore this Carolina Herrera fragrance. There is something about that screams elegance. Its powerful, authentic and perfect for every occasion. This sophisticated  Carolina Herrera master piece is an oriental fragrance categorized by exotic aromas which make it soft and alluring. 

I’m sure you’ve gathered from this post that I am not a fan of scents that are too floral, besides my sinuses also hating those kind of fragrances, i find them over bearing and too loud.
