Fragrance Friday - Kate H - Vera Wang Lovestruck

Hi, it's Kate H here. Welcome to our first ever Fragrance Friday! Here at the Beauty Hot Squad we are wanting to let our readers know a little bit more about who's writing the posts by featuring a favourite perfume or scent every Friday. 

Every girl has at least one perfume that she adores! I tend to change my favourite all the time. I have lots of faves but tend to have a "scent of the moment". At the moment it's Vera Wang's Lovestruck EDP, I bought this in Vegas last year and I really think it's why I love it so much. It reminds me so much of the best time of my life.

This is an amazing bottle to sit on my drawers. It's so beautiful and it's my favourite colour! This is a perfect all rounder for me, I can wear it any time, at any occasion. The tops notes are guava with a light florally air about it and rich woody base notes. It's really, truely a wonderful scent. I got it for a bargainous $40 for a 50ml bottle.

So there is my Fave Fragrance. Now for a few little questions for you to get to know what we love about fragrances. Feel free to join in and let us know if you choose to join us in our Fragrance Friday Q&A's.

What's the first thing you look for in a perfume? 
I love a good floral scent but it can't be overbearing. It needs to sit light but last all day.

Are there any scent that takes you back to a particular time of life?
When I was 17 I went to Florida and bought my first ever high end perfume - Vera Wang Princess. I've been a massive fan of Vera's ever since. It reminds me of some of the fun times I had with my best friends BBAB. (Before Boyfriends and Babies)

Lots of different scents for different occassions or one signature scent? 
I tend to swap and change a lot depending on the season. My signature smell always has to be sweet though, something that puts a smile on my face.

What was the first perfume you remember buying? 
I bought Diesel Green for Women when I was 14. I bought it from TJ Hughes in the Strand Shopping Centre in Bootle and I thought I was the absolute boss! (I wasn't)

Have you ever bought a perfume solely for the bottle? 
The Vera Wang Princess was bought solely for the bottle, I touched lucky when it turned out to be the scent of my late teens!

Are there any male fragrances that you find irresistable?
Oooh Paco Rabanne One Million! Oh yes! I bought it for my bf one Christmas and I love it when he wears it. He's keen on his Givenchy now, so hardly get any smells of it anymore. 

Thanks for reading our first Fragrance Friday post and keep an eye out for the other girls' FF posts in coming weeks.
