Let’s jump right on in with a new My Style Monday…My Favorite Perfumes. I’m a perfume junkie for sure. I’ve been collecting different scents since I was a preteen and have never given up the hobby:0)  Maybe it’s because I find the mixture of liquid and glass to be utterly scrumptious and attractive. Maybe it’s because I can remember some of the most wonderful events in my life and the scents that went right along with them. Either way, I can’t get enough of them.

Today I’m sharing  FIVE classy perfumes that will make you feel like your living straight out of a scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s:0)

I’ve learned a few things about perfuming and one is that not all scents smell the same on EVERYBODY so before you buy, test them out. Figure out what smell best fits YOU!  My signature scent definitely has some strong hints of vanilla, jasmine and lots of fruits:0) Yours might be slightly less fruity and more woodsy. Don’t you just love all of this perfume jargon:0)

Jessica Simpson Fancy.

Jessica Simpson Fancy

If you’re a friend of mine your probably LAUGING so hard right now because you know how much I adore Jessica Simpson. But love or hate HER, this perfume is the perfect everyday scent for a single gal in the city, or a stay at home mommy in the burbs. The scent is an oriental vanilla/sweet perfume which I happen to like! If your not a sweets type of girl then I think you might enjoy her Fancy Nights version.

Heavenly by Victoria Secret

dream angels heavenly

Also one of my favorites. I think I wore this perfume the entire time Reggie and I were dating so I definitely have a strong attachment to it. Every time I spray it on it bring me back to those days. For just a moment I leave motherhood and travel back to when I was 19 and sooo in looovvve! I also love the fact the Reggie recognizes it every time I wear it:0) This will always be in stock on my vanity. It’s another great scent for the everyday but also perfect for date night!

Burberry for Women

Burberry Perfume

I received my first bottle of Burberry in 2003 and it has been my favorite from the Burberry collection since. It’s a super feminine scent with hints of jasmine and bursts of fruits like peach, apricot, cool pear and black currant. I would add this to a rotating day collection as well! It’s so well done and will never get old.


N5 by Channel


This is a scent that I don’t use often but when I do I know I’m going some where It’s a lot more sophisticated and mature than the rest of these on my list but I think it has just THE right scent for a formal evening and fall nights. Whether it’s an black tie wedding or top notch corporate event this scent is all you need. At first I thought of this as an “older” women’s perfume…lol. BUT I think it’s really important to have something in your collection that has some sort of grace and charm to it. Sometimes it just not appropriate to smell like a piece of fruit.ha! I’ve had my bottle for over 2 years now and it’s still about have full. So you know I only use it every now and then.


Juicy Couture


I used this entire bottle in about 3 months, that’s how much I loved it. Another fruity one for ya and that I think you will enjoy it as well! All though it’s marketed for the younger generation like myself haha, women in their upper 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s can have fun with this scent. It’s great for a girls night out, afternoon bridal shower or tea, if you drink tea in the afternoon that is;0) I’ve yet to replace this bottle but I will soon!


Wasn’t that so fun!! I could talk perfume ALL day!

Did you guys know that the secret to making your perfume to last longer is layering. Start in the shower with the wash, lotion up and then spray on all your pulse points!

Are you guys just as obsessed with perfumes and smell goods as I am. Dish it out and tell me what your favorite scents are!


Have you guys entered the LISA LEONARD GIVEAWAY!! What? You haven’t. Well what are you waiting for? $50.00 bucks up for grabs! 


  1. Fancy is one of my faves, that and Coco Chanel

  2. I absolutely LOVE Heavenly as well. I also love most perfumes that have jasmine in it.

  3. Coco Chanel is my “signature” perfume. I’ve been wearing it off and on since I was 13 and my ghetto hoodrat self hooked a huge handful of samples from the Chanel store at Biltmore Fashion Park one day while skipping school with my friends.

    I’ve come a long way since then, LOL!

    One tip, to “keep it classy” is to remember that just because YOU can’t smell your perfume doesn’t mean others can’t. Your nose gets used to scents after a while. You don’t want to keep putting on more because that’s how you become that stinky woman who wears too much perfume!

  4. I love Juicy Couture too. I got it last year for Valentines Day and wear it all the time. My other go to fav is Issey Miyake (sp?),

  5. You are such a class act, Destiny! I have 2 you listed, VS & JC. Love them! I’m a perfume ADDICT! Won’t leave the house without it. Heck, I even wear the good stuff when I’m just hangin @ home all day. My very favorite the past few years has been Euphoria. Ive nicknamed it Love Potion #10 & I’m pretty sure it’s how I hooked my man. lol.

  6. Your kids are so stinkin’ cute!! I love your daughters dress :)
