|Sui Dreams - £24.50|
Over the years I’ve tried countless perfumes but the one I keep going back to is Anna Sui’s Sui Dreams. I think I first started wearing it when I was 16 / 17 but even at the age of 24, I still feel it suits me to a T. It’s my scent.
Sure, I can name a dozen perfumes with bottles that would look much prettier on my dressing table but it is the sweet yet warming and unmistakably feminine scent that makes Sui Dreams one of the most beautiful perfumes I’ve ever tried.
With Top Notes of Nectarine, Mandarin, Bergamot and Orange, Heart Notes of Freesia, Peach, Chinese Peony and Rose and Base Notes of Nutmeg, Sandalwood, Musk, Tahitian Vanilla and Anise, Sui Dreams offers the perfect balance of fruity and floral fragrances. On my skin, I find the sweetness of the vanilla really comes through.
Not only does it smell beautiful as soon as you’ve applied it but it also remains on the skin for long periods of time, something that I didn’t experience with my last perfume, Vivienne Westwood’s Naughty Alice.
The only real problem with Sui Dreams is that not many high street stores seem to stock it, so you'll probably have to buy it online, which is a bit risky if you've not tried it before. Perfume is a very personal thing and whilst I well and truly love Sui Dreams, it’s not going to be for everyone. If however, you like sweet, feminine scents then it may just be your cup of tea.
