Scent City Perfume Review

I love trying new perfumes- life's too short for just one signature scent, right? When Scent City kindly offered to send me some samples of their Urbanites fragrances*, I was totally up for it! I'm no perfume expert and obviously scent preferences are totally subjective, but I've reviewed these as honestly as I can.

Scent City's Urbanites collection features some seriously niche brands that create beautiful luxury scents. I chose to sample Hedonist by Viktoria Minya and Annabelle by Shelley Kyle. They also included 1876 by Histoires De Parfums.
Hedonist / Viktoria Minya
The first perfume I tried and the first one I want to talk about is Hedonist, my absolute favourite of the scents I received. This perfume is seriously sexy. It reminds me of Black XS by Paco Rabanne, which is a fragrance that I love. Hedonist smells dark and luxurious though it still feels sweet enough to wear every day. It features jasmine and orange notes alongside the dark intensity of rum and tobacco... if that's not niche then I don't know what is! Can I get a full bottle asap please?

Annabelle / Shelley Kyle
I realise that summer is coming to a close, but if you want to be transported back to blue skies...right this way! This is a crisp, clean scent that seriously reminds me of summer mornings. It's slightly floral as well which is a nice touch, featuring wild lily and honeysuckle. I don't think I'd wear this all year round- it's a little too 'pretty' for me- but in the spring and summer this would be gorgeous. The full sized bottle also looks absolutely beautiful!
1876 / Histoires De Parfums
This scent is a blend of Moldavian rose, cinnamon and sandalwood. Its very dark and almost smells spicy, so it's a pretty acquired taste: if you like deep, cologne-esque perfumes then you will love this, but it wasn't really for me.
I may not have loved all of the fragrances I tried, but I'm a massive fan of Hedonist, Scent City and all its design details. I love how each perfume is categorised and described in such depth. It's also nice to see a myriad of fragrance brands that I had never even heard of before. Be sure to check out Scent City here if you fancy the sound of any of these!

Do you have any niche perfume favourites? Let me know! Til next time xo
