The Scent Of A Woman


I've always been infatuated by scents. If something smells good I want it (whether it's perfume, beauty products, or food). I love the way perfume evokes a memory from a time in your life, a person, place, or thing. While I have some personal favorites (Chanel Chance & Vicktor & Rolf Flowerbomb), I like to to wear different scents for different moods and occasions. I'm currently looking for new recommendations. What are some of your favorite scents?

Right now I wear Lola by Marc Jacobs, and I love it! Before that I wore Tryst Kiss by Lady Primrose. Both lovely fragrances!

Saks has a fragrance line called "Bond No. 9" themed around New York City. Everything comes in beautiful bottles and smells divine! My favorite is the Scent of Peace. It's refreshing and cool but not super citrusy. Perfect.

For perfume, I love YSL Parisienne, Chloe, and Stella McCartney. I'm a sucker for anything rose-scented. Certain scents remind me of my mom, like CK Eternity and Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue.

In other scents, I love the smell of rain after a dry spell, baking scents, coffee brewing, and, strangely enough, McDonald's...they all evoke a sense of comfort.

I'm sooooo with you! I LOVE delicious smelling perfumes, candles and lotions (oh, and cookies that are baking the in oven ;))!

I'm loving YSL perfume, the new Taylor Swift perfume!

Josie said...

Right now I am loving my bottle of Creed - forget what scent, something in a white bottle, LOL! I am also dying to get my hands on a bottle of the Jimmy Choo and Prada Candy. However I feel when I spent $$$ on the Creed I need to stay loyal to it for a while (a very long while).

la labo. best fragrance ever.

Paula said...

right now I'm wearing essence by narciso rodriguez, chance by chanel and flowerbom by victor & rolf

scents have the power of instantly changing your mood and in a mysterious way make you feel polished, even with the most basic of outfits! dab on a little bit of perfume even when you're at home.. you'll see what I mean!

My scent has changed with age, though I always go back to Pleasures by Este Lauder. It is kind of my signature...I guess.

I have to admit, I'm attracted to pretty perfume bottles. My favorite of all time (Anna Sui Secret Wish) has been discontinued and I only have one bottle left. :/ Looking for a new favorite.

Paula said...

I rotate between Hermes Jardin sur le Toit, Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir, and Bond No. 9 Hamptons

Jaclyn said...

I love finding signature scents, especially ones that make you feel a certain way when you wear them. For night time, I've been wearing Prada Amber for a while. It has an amazing musky smell that feels perfect for a fancy night out.

Tiffany said...

My favorite scent is between Coco Chanel and Marc Jacob's Lola

great post!

I've been on the lookout for new refreshing scents as well! I do love the new Burberry body perfume.

AM said...

I'm a big fan of scents too - I just got the new Cartier Baiser Vole, but I also really love Balenciaga Paris Eau de Parfum, so light and clean and flowery at the same time.

When I moved to Paris two months ago, I decided I wasn't going to bring any parfume with me, forcing me (so awful!) to buy some here. I found the most amazing brand, called Killian, that is all natural and divine. Once I smelled this brand's potions, I couldn't smell anything from the counters of Macys or Nordstroms, they just smelled like chemicals. The price tag is not cheap, but part of the purchase goes towards the special bottle, and the refills are reasonable. It is a special splurge :)
