Women’s Perfumes worth trying

Hey Hey Hey!

After the previous post titled ‘Men’s Perfumes Worth Trying’, a lot of people wrote back to me saying that they liked the post, and that they wanted something similar among women’s perfumes.

So without further ado, here we go:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  1. Ralph Lauren – Polo Blue for Womenpolo-blue-women

    Jasmine flowers meet honey and maybe something a little musky? That’s RL’s Polo Blue for Women for you. A perfume that makes you remember soft, warm, happy memories, it was rather sad that the company decided to withdraw the scent. You can, however, still get similar scents if you search online!
  2. Versace – Bright Crystal

    Sometimes, you just take a whiff of a scent and no matter where you are, you get transported into another world altogether. For me, one such perfume is Versace’s Bright Crystal. It reminds me of a very powerful, strong woman’s approach, rather than that of a delicate darling. A must try, especially on days when you feel like the go-getter you are! 🙂
  3. Michael Kors – Rose Radiant Gold & Sexy Amber

    Have I ever told you of my slight (and by that I mean Complete!!) obsession for all things Michael Kors, it just proves that my attempts at getting over the awesomeness of the brand, have been commendable. But now that I am telling you about it, these scents Definitely deserve to be checked out, the very next time when you have the chance!

    If I were to describe the scent to you, I’d call the Rose Radiant Gold a borderline delicate scent – something that you’d wear to the wedding of the classmate who was probably mean to you all through high-school. That is to say, the scent is delicate where it needs to be – but it certainly has its Powerful undertones that says “no nonsense accepted here” 😀
    MK Sexy Amber.jpg
    As for Sexy Amber, I am yet to smell a perfume that has the perfect balance of musk and amber – but OH GODS! This one comes Very very close to what I imagine to be the perfect blend of sweetness and woody-elements. If I didn’t love trying perfumes so much and needed to settle down with 3 perfumes only, this would Definitely be one of them.

  4. United Colours of Benetton – Paradisouob-paradiso

    Another classic scent that makes you go all starry eyed, I was genuinely heart-broken when UOB decided to withdraw this perfume. This was the Ultimate blend of flowery, fruity, fresh and woody components, and by far, the highest longevity that I’ve gotten to experience with ANY perfume.

    Unfortunately for me, I have never been able to find a similar aroma yet – but if you do know, pleaaaase let me know too!!

  5. Calvin Klein – Eternity for Women ck-eternity
    Aaah… the ever wonderful range of Calvin Klein Scents! While I do love almost all their perfumes, I am and will forever be a little biased towards their original ‘Eternity’ – for both, men and women.

    This is the kind of perfume you’d want to associate with your caregiver. By that, I don’t necessarily mean your Mama or your Nanny… what I do intend to mean is that this is a very soothing, very comforting scent that would probably even toddlers associate with safety and care. So if you’re feeling like your loving, caring self – a little more so on some days – then you NEED a bottle of Eternity for women in your perfume collection.

  6. Davidoff Coolwater – Sea Rose
    dc-sea-rose
    True to its name, the first time you smell this perfume, it feels like these two uncanny elements – the sea and the rose – have always had an association. Gently balanced between the freshness of the sea and the subtle power of the rose, this perfume is best suited for days out with your girl friends or a loved one. But on the other hand, this is not an evening perfume at all – unless you’ve run out of all your other perfumes, of course! 😀
  7. Giorgio Armani – Si
    ga-si
    This is the perfume that has earned me the most number of compliments from people across the bench! People of all ages have smelled my perfume when they lean in for a hug or sit close to me, taken a deep breath and gone “woooow!”

    When I first smelled this perfume, I remember not liking it.. but a few minutes after I left the store, I needed to correct my hair and when my hand swept past my face, I remember thinking “Oh My Goodness! I smell like candy – without smelling like something to eat!” What followed of course, was me running back to the store and buying one of these and voila! I’ve been showered in compliments ever since.

    The Armani – Si, is your goody-two-shoes meets girl-boss. Soft and gentle, yet knows what she wants. Pretty much, I’d say the perfume is one of the best I’ve tried among women’s perfumes, ever.

Knowing Your Ties

Heya!

As always, Welcome Newbie Reader – or – Welcome Back Existing Reader! 🙂 Hope you’ve been well in the while that I’ve been away for.

Now, why should you be reading what a random blogger has to say about ties, when the last time she herself wore one, was nothing short of years ago? Well, the truth is, you shouldn’t. But now that you’re here, why not read on? 😀 Alright gentleman (or lady!), here we go!

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When to Wear A White Tiewhite-tie

Well, I know that these aren’t so common today, but in the ages bygone, the “white tie” attire was considered the “formal eveing dress” for men. Though there are very few events that actually ask for guests to be in literal white ties these days, for any event that is of absolute importance post sun-down, wearing a white tie can really help you contribute subtly to how serious your involvement is.

(Here, it’s supposed to be this guy’s wedding. Also, this guy is supposed to be a 108 year old vampire – so you see how the older peeps still go for white ties? Yeah – same.)

When to Wear a Black Tie black-tie

Initially, wearing a black tie was considered semi-formal. However today, most formal events of various kinds do allow for guests to wear black ties. It has been noted though, that unless it is a corporate event or other such absolutely serious business, a black tie is preferred in the evening.

What to Wear During the Day bright-ties

Depending on how formal the occassion is and the role you are going to be playing in it, you can go in for numerous choices. While a lot has to do with the weather in the material of the tie you choose and also what you are pairing your tie with, it is pretty safe to say that lighter or brighter shades are great choices for occassions during the day. Of course, I don’t mean for you to wear a lime green tie to a funeral, but hey – there’e no denying the edge of a cool light-blue tie with a white shirt or even a pastel tie with a matching shirt, you know? 🙂

What t0 Wear During the Night dark-colour-ties

With fashion designers and lovers going in for free, bold choices round-the-clock, there have been a lot of instances in the past where an unusual choice of tie or component of attire – has made heads turn – for reasons right and wrong alike. Nonetheless, there still exists a faction of the world who prefer to choose classics (thus making them even more classic! 😀 ) and for those among these, a black or dark blue tie is the epitome of evening tie fashion. Despite other options such as burgundy, deep purples and shades of dark greek entering the foray of ‘acceptable colours’ for events in the evening, you know just as well as I do that nothing beats black or blue (pun definitely intended XD).

Other Random Things to Remember for Ties

  1. If you are accompanying someone to an event and the two of you are likely to be together for a majority of the evening, finding one element of your total outfit to match an important element of their attire is a great way. You could wear the same colour of tie as your prom partner’s dress or if your suit is black while your dad has opted for a blue blazer, opt for a tie closer to his shade. This trick works wonders in getting perfect photographs. 🙂
  2. If you are carrying a silk handkerchief (which is highly recommended for formal events and not having one tucked in is often looked down upon, thank you!) then it MUST match your tie. Of course, if you’ve skipped the tie altogether, then you are at liberty – else, a mismatch could be a blunder that sticks out like a sore thumb 😦
  3. Prevent a clash of prints between your tie and your shirt – as this could make your outfit look shabby than put-together, no matter how many hours you spent on it. While self-designs are a completely different story, it is important to balance out the visual effect on the beholder – by going for bold, noticable prints on either the tie – OR the shirt, preferably, never both.
  4. Learn how to tie more than one knot. I cannot emphasise on this hard enough, because there are so many different lengths, materials and kinds in ties, that a knot that you’ve worn all your life on one tie, could look like a disaster on another. Again, based on the kind of tie and the kind of occassion you will be attending, choose the knot you wear.

So there you go folks! These are just a few things about ties that I know a lot of people struggle with. I hope this has helped you in some way, if it hasn’t you smile. If you have any tips, tricks, suggestions, queries or comments, do let me know below, or email me at teenxadventurer@gmail.com 🙂
