It’s been another long but exciting week working at The Milton Club, so when the weekend came, I couldn’t wait to treat myself to lots of lovely things from the Trafford centre. (It was officially pay day, Friday, so I couldn’t resist)
Today on my weekly blog post I’m reviewing my Vivienne Westwood perfume- Mon Boudoir. To be honest, I’ve had this perfume a good few months, I just haven’t got round to reviewing it here.
Anyone that knows me will tell you I’m a Viv Westwood enthusiast. I love the story behind her career and how she made it big in the fashion industry. I just still haven’t managed to save up for one of her designer bags yet…… When I was browsing in The Perfume Shop a few months back I noticed the perfume sat on its own in the sale rack. I instantly picked it up and started jumping around with joy as it was only £21.99 which is an absolute bargain. Having never had a whiff of the perfume before, I asked for a sample but to my disappointment, the shop only had the 1 bottle left.
After much consideration, I dragged myself out of the shop and thought it’d be best to have a look online at reviews. Five minutes later I was back with my card ready to buy the perfume… It was a bit of an impulse buy due to my obsession with everything Westwood, but it paid off.
The delicate floral scent and musky notes of this perfume have me hooked. I’m already half way through the bottle and will be re-purchasing another when it runs out. This perfume is perfect for day to night use. The floral scent keeps me smelling fresh all day while the musky notes are strong enough for night time wear. As you can see from the photos, the bottle is the classic Viv Westwood style, which can be found on many items of her jewellery and clothing.
I would give this perfume a big 5/5. I’ve had far too many comments from ladies on my commute to work asking me what my perfume is. I think it’s important to be able to have an all-time favourite perfume you can wear whatever the season.
What’s your favourite perfume?
