Chance...




I'll admit it, personally I hate reading perfume reviews, but I couldn't resist quickly sharing my favourite Winter smell. Chance by Chanel. This morning I decided to switch from my summer perfume, and spritz this beauty on. (Sorry about the photo quality, it's well loved, I've lost the lid and the bottle is scratched from being thrown in my handbag all the time. Atleast you can tell I really love it.)
It's funny isn't it how a smell can instantly remind you of a season? This makes me think of crisp Winter mornings, wrapping up in a big fur coat. Cosey nights in, with a glass of red, hot water bottle and a wooly blanket. The great thing about this perfume, is that you can literally spray in the morning, and it lasts all day. It's such a full, rich smell. I do think it's an aquired taste though, so make sure you test it out first if you're thinking of ordering it.

Today, the ladies and I decided to go for express steaks and a glass of red at lunchtime. I'm not gonna lie, returned to the desk a little tipsy. I ate far too much of this cake too, probably the best chocolate cake I've ever tasted. It has Dime Bars all crushed up on top and a layer of toffee in the middle. YUM. If only I could bake something this good!

Anyway, seeing as it's payday, I thought you might be interested in a little Chanel treat :) Do you change your perfume in the winter? What's your favourite Winter perfume? x

  2. Your blog is absolutely gorgeous (and is a great read)!
    My favourite perfume of all time has to be Flowerbomb. It's the only one I'll buy over and over again.

  8. The cake looks so yummy :)
    Never smelled this version of chance, only the Eau fraiche which I loved so I'll def have to check it out! I do change my perfume in winter (from floral/fruity scents to powdery/oriental ones) but it just hit me when reading your post that I don't own any particularly wintery scent! Luckily it's payday aha xx

  12. This was one of my very first 'real' perfumes that I got for my 16th birthday I think. It's strange that it reminds you of Winter, it remind me of Spring as I first got it in April! :)

    Lovely blog btw :)
