These are my absolute favourite scents/brands of fragrances (excluding the new Chanel No. 5). Some of them are new releases that are fast becoming cult favourites and some of them are 'good old faves' you can always count on. Here is some "gift inspo" for you.
这些是我绝对喜欢的香水（不包括新的Chanel No.5）。 其中一些是新的版本，正在迅速成为崇拜的喜好，其中一些你总是可以指望任何事件。 这些是我的精彩推荐的香水。适合作为礼品。
I haven't included a price list as prices differ from where you might purchase them from and in which country you are. There are some that are exclusive to Sephora in Australia. I have included links to the individual brands' websites if you want to learn more about them.
Some of the scents are unisex or are what I think are unisex - you know, that "sexy man smell" wink wink! 一些可以由男人和女人穿。
还有一件事, 请原谅我，如果我的中文翻译不好。 我还在学习如何描述香水的心情和气味!!!
I can't really remember when I got hooked on them, but let's say it's been a long time. I even included one of their gift sets in my 2014 X'mas Gift Guide on Youtube (click on the photo below if you want to watch it. The gift guide is pretty much evergreen).
Nest Fragrances was first launched in 2008. It has recently hit the Australian shores and is exclusive to Sephora. I was privileged to attend the influencers session to hear about Nest Fragrances from the founder herself, Laura Slatkin (who looks like Jackie O in her Kennedy years). It was so fascinating to hear about how she got inspired to create each fragrance (there are now seven in the range). It's hard for me describe my creative process but, she so eloquently shared with us how the brand was created, evolved and continues to grow.
Nest Fragrances是2008年首次推出的。它最近抵达澳大利亚，是Sephora的独家产品。 我有幸参加了博客会议，并遇到了Nest Fragrances，Laura Slatkin（她看起来像Jackie O）的创始人。 听说她如何激发创造每种香水（现在有七个范围内）是如此令人着迷。 我很难描述我的创作过程，但她如此雄辩地告诉我们品牌是如何创造，演变和如何继续成长。
It is hard to choose a favourite as I do love all of them. Fragrances should match your mood I think, and I am one complicated person!
很难从范围中选择一个。 我爱每一个！ 我从Nest Fragrances挑选了我最喜欢的三种香水:"Citrine"; "Verde" (男女皆宜的香水) and "Indigo".
As this is a a gift guide, I won't be able to go through each of the seven fragrances (I'll write more about Nest Fragrances in a separate blog).
My top three would be "Citrine"; "Verde" (which I feel is unisex) and "Indigo" (not only does it smell good, but one of my fave jazz songs is called "Mood Indigo" by Due Ellington and Barney Bigard).
Citrine Eau de Parfum: Lemon Blossom, Lotus Flower, Freesia, Dew Drop Accord, Precious Woods. Mood: Happiness, Joyful. Bright. To me, this brings back memories of happy times. I wear when I want to smell fresh, light and feel happy.
它的气味：柠檬花，莲花，小苍兰，露滴一致，宝贵的树林。 心情：幸福，快乐。 亮。 对我来说，这带来了回忆的快乐时光。 当我想闻到清新，光和感觉快乐，我会穿它。
Verde Eau de Parfum: Wild fern, Himalayan Cedar, Verbena Leaves and Vetiver. Mood: Crisp, Fresh. This is a very "green" and woody scent. When I smell it, it reminds me of that very moment when the rain stops falling and the sun hits the grass. It's quite evocative for me. This scent is unisex and my husband loves it.
它的气味：野生蕨，喜马拉雅雪松，马鞭草和香根草。 心情：酥，新鲜。 这是一种非常“绿色”和木质的香味。 当我闻到它，它让我想起那一刻，当雨停止下降，太阳击中草的时刻。 这对我来说很令人回味。 这种香味是男女皆宜的，我丈夫也喜欢它。
Indigo Eau de Parfum: Moroccan Tea, Kashmir Wood, Cardamom, Wild Fig. Mood: Warm, Musky, Sexy. This is a fragrance I wear if I'm having a romantic dinner date with my husband. It's a deep and complex scent and I can definitely sense the tannins from the tea and a bit of fruitiness.
它的气味：摩洛哥茶，克什米尔木，豆蔻，野生无花果。 心情：温暖，麝香，性感。 如果我有一个浪漫的晚餐日期与我的丈夫, 我会穿这香水。 这是一种深刻而复杂的香味，我可以感觉到茶的单宁和一点点的果味。
These are two of the most popular fragrances AMPED UP in G O L D.
这些是Marc Jacobs品牌最受欢迎的香水，但在非常豪华的包装。 这些是为圣诞节特别制作的。
This year, Marc Jacobs Daisy comes in three limited edition metallic colours. Gold, Pink and Red. 你可以买到金属的颜色：金，粉红色和红色。
They are all quite stunning aren't they? If you are a collector, well here is the "Daisy Shine" edition!! Make you want to get all of them, doesn't it.
"Daisy" has notes of berries and violet, accented by the rich scents of birch and cedar wood. This fragrance smells exactly like a daisy. Sunny, chirpy and adored by all. 这款香水闻起来有浆果和紫罗兰色，由桦木和雪松木香味浓郁。 这款香水闻起来就像一朵雏菊。 晴朗，啁啾和所有赞赏。
Marc Jacobs has also released the "One Eight K" Edition" of "Decadence". "Decadence" was one of the most popular scents of 2015 and pretty much hit everyone's wish list last year. 它是2015年最受欢迎的香水之一，去年几乎打到每个人的愿望清单。这是它们的“一个八克拉”版本。
This year, we get the super luxe version all in glam gold. "Decadence" is a very complex scent. It has top notes of Italian plum, iris flower, and saffron. The heart combines luxurious notes of Bulgarian rose, jasmine sambac, and orris. The indulgent dry down reveals the base notes of vetiver, papyrus woods, and liquid amber. Wow. That is a lot of notes going on there.
它的气味：意大利李子，鸢尾花和藏红花。 心中结合了保加利亚玫瑰，茉莉花桑巴和鸢尾花的奢华香气。 放纵干燥显示香根草，纸莎草木和液体琥珀的基调。
I definitely detect notes of rose and jasmine then as it warms up some woody scents and a kind of musk scent (probably from the amber). This is a fragrance to be worn when you want to feel luxurious. 我可以闻到玫瑰和茉莉花。 当它温暖起来，我可以闻到一些木香和一种麝香香味（可能从琥珀）。 这是一种香味，当你要感觉奢侈的时候穿。
I've collected a few of Narciso Rodriguez fragrances. I would describe all of them as cutting edge, yet romantic and timeless. Very much like Narciso Rodriguez's
I adore the design of the bottle of this latest NARCISO eau de parfum. It is simple yet so chic. I actually find it quite stunning because of it's clean lines. I think part of a fragrance's allure is the design of the bottle. It is what hits the senses first and draws you in to try the scent.
我喜欢这个最新的NARCISO香水瓶的设计。 这是简单而如此别致。 我认为香水的魅力的一部分是瓶子的设计。 这是一个命中的感官，并吸引你尝试的香味。
This has woody notes and white florals, with a strong middle note of musc. To me, the first scent that hits the nose is that of sun dried fresh linen, then a slight sweetness followed by a bit of sandalwood. The scent of the musc does come through quite strongly once this warms up. 这个香水闻起来像木和白色的花香，和一个强烈的中间麝香。
You cannot have a perfume gift guide without including at least one YSL perfume. It would be madness! My very first perfume was "Parisienne", a gift from my brother. This year's pick is "Mon Paris" pictured above with it's companion eyeshadow compact.
"Mon Paris Eau de Parfum" is everything what Paris means to you. Something a little different for everyone. If you have had the opportunity to visit Paris, I think you will get what I'm trying to say. I've been there three times, and on one occasion stayed for 6 weeks. Every day is different and special in Paris. C'est paris à moi! “Mon Paris Eau de Parfum”是巴黎对你意味着的一切。 对于每个人来说有点不同。
It is super cute and makes a great addition to your vanity table. The scent is light, bubbly and sweet but not overpowering. I feel like it is a lighter version of the "Parisienne". It has notes of white chypre, white petaled musk, datura accord and patchouli.
香水瓶是非常可爱，使一个伟大的除了你的虚荣桌。 香味是轻，气泡和甜，但不强大。 我觉得这是一个更轻的版本的“Parisienne”。 它的气味白色西普，白色花瓣麝香，曼陀罗和广藿香。
Calvin Klein comes up with the most popular scents! I don't know how they do it. This is "Deep Euphoria" the first major addition to the euphoria franchise since the unveiling of the original euphoria scent in 2005. 自从2005年原始的幸福感香水揭开以来，幸福感的特许经营的第一个主要的补充。
The bottle conveys it's sensuous mood, with it's curved lines and dark plum glass. It is a very nice bottle to hold in your hand as the groves and twists allows makes your hand naturally caress it. Very sexy. 瓶子传达它的感觉的心情，它的曲线和深色梅花玻璃。 这是一个非常好的瓶子，因为树丛和扭曲允许使你的手自然地抚摸它。 非常性感。
It has notes of cascalone and black magic rose, and a warm musk. To me, this smells a bit like an orchid, a bit of honey and wood, then rose and definitely musk (but not overly musky). It is a modern sexy scent. 这香水闻起来的兰花，有点蜂蜜和木材，然后玫瑰和一种强烈的麝香味（但不是过于麝香）。 这是一种现代性感的香水。
Commodity Goods is a new discovery for me. This is a relatively new brand and I first discovered it at the Sephora Exclusive Brands Showcase A/W16.
One word says it all: "COOL". 这是一个相对较新的品牌。 这是非常现代和时髦派的香水品牌。我诚实地告诉你，我想收集它们所有的香水，除了一个叫“威士忌”（它闻起来太像威士忌）。
I'm afraid I am going to use the word "cool" over and over again when I describe Commodity Goods. I am obsessed with this brand.
The collection is divided into two: "Black" and "White". I want all of them except maybe for "Whiskey" as I'm not quite into the "whiskey and cigar" scent.
In the Black series, there is: Whiskey, Book, Moss, Wool and Gin. Although the scents can be classified as unisex, these lean more to what I might call the "manly" scents.
"Moss" was my first pick. I want "Book" and "Wool". Moss“是我的第一选择，我想要”Book“和”Wool“。
Moss captures the balance between fresh, cool greens and musky earth undertones. I would describe it as earthy and green. 这款香水捕捉新鲜，清凉的绿色和麝香味之间的平衡。 我闻到“土的”和“绿色”的气味。
The White series, there is; Gold; Mimosa; Rain; Magnolia and Tea. Also unisex, I feel these lean toward the feminine side.
I have Gold, Mimosa (not pictured here) and Rain. I WANT/NEED Magnolia and Tea.
Gold is: warm and gourmand scent that is loved by both men and women. This rich concoction of molten amber and Nubian musk.这款香水是温暖和美食家的气味，是男人和女人喜爱的。 它是一种丰富的混合琥珀和努比亚麝香。
Mimosa is: bubbly champagne and sweet mandarin and evokes a bright sunday brunch. 这款香水是泡沫香槟和甜普通话，唤起明亮的星期天早午餐。
Rain is: fresh and aquatic scent that is loved by both men and women. This pleasant surprise for spring combines soothing notes of lotus, verbena, dew, and jasmine. 这款香水是清新和水生的香味。 男人和女人都喜欢它。 它结合了莲花，马鞭草，露水和茉莉花的舒缓气味。
Clean Reserve has an especially remarkable range of fragrances. It is an offshoot of the brand "Clean".
I really do want to purchase a few of their large sized bottles. 我真的想要购买它们的大型瓶子。
The concept behind this brand is "Sustainable Beauty". The cap of each bottle is made from Oak sourced from Spain. The fragrances are sourced from sustainable ingredients. The alcohol used is made from corn and they have incorporated aloe vera into the fragrances for added soothing properties.
这个品牌背后的概念是“可持续美”。 每个瓶子的帽子是由来自西班牙的橡木制成。 香料来自可持续的成分。 所使用的酒精由玉米制成，并且它们将芦荟掺入香料中以增加舒缓特性。
You can layer and/or pair each fragrance in the Clean Reserve range. There are eleven scents in total. I will be doing a separate blog story once I get the full sized bottles. 您可以将香水匹配和配对在一起。
I was gifted this travel set during the A/W Sephora Exclusive Brands Showcase. I haven't looked back since. This travel set is a great present to give to fragrance lovers. 我只试过它们11香水中的6个。
In this set you get | 在这个礼物集:
sueded oud: notes of wood, citron and floral. This is a creamy, reimagined approach to traditional oud fragrances. The combination strikes a fine balance between brighter and darker facets of fragrance. It has a definite oriental flavour to it as I can smell the spiciness. The citrus notes lift the scent and makes it refreshing. "sueded oud" can be used as the base for layering other Clean Reserve Scents.
它有木材，香橼，奶油和花香的气味。 该组合在明亮和暗色的香味之间取得了良好的平衡。 它有一定的东方风味，因为我可以闻到辣味。 柑橘香气提升香味，让它清爽。 “麂皮绒”可以用作分层其他清洁储备的基础。
blonde rose: notes of rose, jasmine, and peony. I can detect the rose and peony as the top notes and a lingering jasmine scent. Jasmine is a scent I associate with my childhood as we had a huge jasmin bush in the neighbourhood. During the warmer months, it was all we could smell at night.
它闻起来玫瑰，茉莉花和牡丹。 我可以检测到玫瑰和牡丹作为前调和持久的茉莉花香味。 茉莉花是与我的童年联系在一起的香味，因为我们在附近有一个巨大的茉莉花灌木。 在温暖的月份时，我们只能在晚上闻到。
amber saffron: notes of red fruits, delicate florals, soothing musks, warm amber and exquisite saffron. This is a delicious juicy berry scent accented by the musks and amber used. The saffron add that unexpected touch. It is warm and rich in flavour.
这个香水有红色水果，精致花香，舒缓的麝香，温暖的琥珀和精美的藏红花。 这是一种美味的多汁的浆果香味，由麝香和琥珀使用。 藏红花增加了意想不到的触摸。 它有一个温暖和丰富的味道。
velvet flora: notes of bergamot, florals, spices and leathery woods. There is a velvety feel to this scent. I smell lilac, bergamot, a bit of pepper and sandalwood.
这里有佛手柑，花香，香料和皮质的树林。 这种香味有天鹅绒般的感觉。 我闻到淡紫色，香柠檬，一点胡椒和檀香。
rain [reserve blend]: notes of fruity floral notes blended with fresh patchouli vetiver and musks. "Rain" from the Clean Range is one of my favourites. It just creates this image of the sun coming out after the rain and warming those drops of rain on blades of grass. This has a very fresh and joyful feel about it. I can smell earthy tones, definitely the patchouli and musks, and a sweetness from the florals. There is a hint of honey to it.
这具有水果的花香味与新鲜的广藿香香根草和麝香混合。 这有一个非常新鲜和快乐的感觉。 我可以闻到泥土的色调，绝对的广藿香和麝香，和从花香的甜蜜。 有一个蜂蜜的提示。
warm cotton [reserve blend]: notes of floral and musks. This is the companion to Clean's famous "Warm Cotton" fragrance. This scent hits you immediately with it refreshing and clean tone. The first note I get is lemon, then a mix of roses, lilac and peonies, followed by the musk. This remains a fresh and clean scent all day long as it warms up on your skin.
这有柠檬，然后是玫瑰，丁香和牡丹的混合，其次是麝香。 它将一直是一个新鲜和清洁的香味。 这是一种非常清爽的香味。
I hope you have enjoyed this fragrance story. I will be writing more about particular scents but I do recommend these as great gifts all year round.
Yours Truly with Lots of Love, TeacupOfMakeup. 待会见! 可爱的小茶杯!
