I can't believe it's nearly Fathers Day already. This will be the second one in which my partner is a Father for. I love Fathers Day, it's so easy to take for granted our Fathers, our partners, and Father figures in our lives, so once a year, it is nice for them to be reminded that we love them, we need them and we treasure them. (Although we should be doing it more than once a year) 

However, finding a present that says all that can be really hard, nothing ever really shows them exactly how much you appreciate them and sure a fragrance can't say it all but a fragrance is a pretty personal thing, just being able to pick out a fragrance they like shows that you know them and it's little tokens of love like that, that really matter. 

Fragrance Direct have made it easier than ever to get the right fragrance for your loved one, just take the fragrance finder quiz and hopefully it will give you a helping hand in finding the perfect scent. It literally takes 2 minutes and it's quite fun seeing what fragrance they suggest. 

"It's Masculine and seductive, the kind of scent that turns heads"

This is my favorite of the bunch, not only because the bottle is pretty swanky, but because it's got that real sexy smell to it. It's masculine and seductive, the kind of scent that turns heads. Funnily enough, this was also my partners favorite. I feel like this is a really safe scent, I'd be surprised if someone wasn't keen on this scent.

I really couldn't decide which fragrance I prefered out of this one and the other. However, Gucci Guilty just topped the boat slightly, purely because of it's swanky and slim bottle, I felt like it was a little more travel-friendly. However, this bottle is equally sleek, it is just a little bulkier. The scent is again very masculine, fresh and sophisticated. This is a really memorable scent, it's got something a little unique to it whilst still being a really safe option. 

Gucci Guilty Pour Homme Absolute EDP
This is your not so safe option, this scent is like marmite. You either love it or hate it. I'm not going to lie, it is not my favourite, it certainly is not something my partner would usually wear, not because it doesn't smell nice but because it is a scent I imagine an older man wearing, it's very sophisticated and masculine still but it is very unique. It will not be everyone's cup of tea.

If you're still hunting for the perfect Father's day gift I really recommend checking out Fragrance Directs Fathers Day hub and taking the fragrance finder quiz. It is such a great idea, it is quick and easy. Plus it really helps when it comes to picking out the perfect scent! 

I hope this has been helpful, let me know if you've taken the quiz! Also, let me know what you are getting your Father for Fathers Day.

"To say I'm obsessed would be an understatement" 

Perfume has always been one of those items that feel's like a treat, something about it screams luxury and Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Blush is no exception. It's light, floral and airy, with notes of lily of the valley, rose and lingering drydown it really is the perfect Spring Summer scent. To say I'm obsessed would be an understatement. Plus, how breathtakingly beautiful is the bottle? In fact, it is so beautiful I created a makeup look inspired by the bottle. Something soft, pretty and glowy.
(you can shop the fragrance here for £34.95 saving yourself £19.05!)

When creating the look I really wanted to make it match the scent. I wanted it to be perfect for Spring and Summer time so obviously, all the glow was key. I started off by mixing a tiny bit Nars Illuminator in Super Orgasm in with my foundation and it looked gorgeous. If you've tried anything in the shade Orgasm you will know it is a gorgeous shade with lots of gold undertones, which work perfectly at brightening the face. However, of course, this wasn't enough glow for me, so I added Nars Copacabana onto my cheek bones. This really brightened and highlighted the area.

I then took a large fluffy brush and dusted the Loreal Lumi Magique Pearl Powder this powder is so lightweight but sets your makeup beautifully. You wouldn't even know you have applied powder to your face. It literally keeps your skin looking glowy and your makeup lasting all day. It is very similar to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders and I imagine it to be similar to the By Terry Illuminating Powder as the shades and idea are very similar. However, this powder retails at £4.99 on Fragrance Direct and I literally have been using it non-stop. 

I then added Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Healthy Glow Powder because I'm so pale this works beautifully at bronzing my face up. It is very soft and natural but it really brings my makeup together. It really does give me that healthy kind of glow look. Plus it smells amazing.


Then the last step I took was adding this beautiful blusher in Desire. I actually picked the wrong shade in this blusher, I originally was meant to pick Unlawful, but this shade is actually so similar to the colour of the perfume bottle it fits well. This blush is simply stunning, that being said, like all Nars blushers you only need a tiny tiny amount. They really are super pigmented and it really is easy to go overboard.

And of course to finish off the look I created my signature curls and added my signature Summer scent and then I was good to go.

What is your spring summer fragrance?
