DKNY Stories eau de parfum fragrance perfume new designer sweet scent vanilla tonka flowers flower wall
'an oriental floral eau de parfum with a modern feminine edge that inspires new stories every time you wear it.'

When it comes to perfume, I don't have a huge collection. I tend to have two bottles on the go at once, an evening scent and a day time scent. I've had my beloved evening scent on lock for a long time. For the past 5 years I've worn Lancôme's La Vie Est Belle for any kind of event or evening situation. It's my absolute favourite and the scent now holds so many memories and feels incredibly special to me. But when it comes to day time perfume I've never really found one I particularly love. I'm really fussy and hate anything too musky or floral. So when I received the DKNY Stories* fragrance I was really excited to try something new.

On first spray, I knew I loved it. It's incredibly light and fresh and 'easy smelling' as I would put it. It's slightly floral without being in your face and there's a hint of sweetness but the spices and sandalwood bring it back down a little. I always adore anything with a vanilla scent but don't like it to be over powering or sickly and I think this fragrance manages to balance it out perfectly.

It's the perfect day time scent and I honestly feel like 'me' when I'm wearing it. Gareth and I recently went out to brunch with friends and the girls of the group all commented and asked what perfume I was wearing. Even Gareth mentioned how much he liked it. We ended up roaming around Manchester, having a few cocktails and playing a game of crazy golf. I love when small plans turn in to a spontaneous adventure and it ended up being so much fun. I kept getting little wafts of the fragrance throughout the day and now I love it even more that I've attached some fun memories to it. 

Every time I've left the house I've opted for a spritz of DKNY Stories and I'm just loving it. It's become a firm favourite in my, albeit tiny, collection and I will definitely be repurchasing when I've used this bottle up.
