Someone once said to me: “Find your fragrance and wear it everyday, you’ll always feel good.”
Perfume is one of those unseen things that just invites you in when you talk to a person. I don’t mean I want every person I meet to be doused in £70 eau de parfum but I do get a hint of pleasure when I smell a nice smell curling around somebody.
For me, the fragrance that has always fit me is Vera Wang‘s Princess. It’s fruity and, to some people, sickly sweet but when it mixes with my body chemistry I feel amazing. My friends tell me I smell good, strangers tell me I smell good, this is a good thing. So naturally, I have a certain amount of brand loyalty and it was never intended this way, it’s just Vera Wang works for me. My other two perfumes are Rock Princess and Bouquet*. The holy trinity. I repurchase and recycle these babies to suit my mood and I’m ecstatic with them.
My question is: what is your ‘holy grail’ perfume/aftershave/scent? Do you wear it everyday or just for special occasions? Or is there simply something you have your eye on to try?
*Just to give you an idea: Rock Princess is a much richer and muskier smelling perfume, perfect for evenings out or feeling spectacular in your sassiest dress. Bouquet, originally part of a bridal range, on the other hand, is more floral and fresh smelling and I consider it to be my ‘grown up’ perfume. Appropriate for any occasion, this puppy almost beats out Princess as my fave, if only I didn’t have so many good memories attached to the latter. 😛
