What’s Your Perfume Scent?

Everyone has their own scent, a scent that goes well with their personality and spirit and makes them a little more magical than what they are already. It’s the scent that catches people’s breath when you walk by, a scent that’s reminiscent of who you are. When I find a perfume I love it becomes my one and only for a couple of years. I find it hard to find a scent that suits me, so I hang on to a good one for a while. I’ve often worn perfume that’s made me feel a little puzzled and uncomfortable because it didn’t quite suit who I was.

When you find that perfect perfume, everything is so much better and this one I found a couple of years ago… I bought Donson by Diptyque in Liberty London because I have always loved their candles. When I sprayed it on my skin, it worked so well with me that I had to buy it. Donson is a floral perfume but has a little curiosity about it. “You smell like summer,” someone once told me and that was enough for me.

Have you found your perfume scent yet? We’d love to know what it is!

I don’t like floral or fruity scents, so I guess that leaves me with sweet candy/ bakery scents! :)

I’ve tried so many perfumes and finally decided mine is Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise, I only use it for special occasions because it is so expensive but it’s just so me. :)

I tend to gravitate toward muskier scents as florals give me a horrible headache. But a couple years back, I ordered a perfume oil from Sweet Anthem on etsy, only because it was called “Jessie” and it was made with apricot, hazlenut, rosewood, and tobacco. It is by far my favorite perfume ever, however the person who makes it retired that scent so I can’t get it anymore. :(

I love all perfume, but my favorite to wear is Black Irchid by Tom Ford. I love smelling it throughout the day and people always stop and ask what it is!

My favourites are Scarlett by Cacharel, Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel and Pleats Please by Issey Miyake. They’re all romantic yet playful and have a quirky, young vibe to them, which I love! They make me feel all cute and happy haha.

Fresh’s Sugar Lychee. I gravitate towards beachy, fruity scents that remind me of the islands I grew up on. I recently discovered Sugar Lychee & I wasn’t impressed by smelling it through the bottle, but I put it on & it hit me. It works so well with my chemistry that I bought a bottle for home & a roll-on for my handbag. My other perfumes are neglected now, lol.

I’ve gone through a few over the years but lately I’ve just been giving myself a little spritz of rose water before I walk out the door. I love the smell of roses and since it’s not actually perfume it’s nice and subtle.

Definitely Mr. Hulot’s Holiday by CB I Hate Perfume. This is the description the website has – “The salty breath of the breeze off the Mediterranean, driftwood, rocks covered with seaweed and the smell of old leather suitcases” – haha sounds a little weird for a perfume but it is actually spectacular! All of his perfumes come with stories as well.

I like to mix Marc Jacobs “Daisy” with a little cheapie find called “Dirt” by Demeter. I saw the name when I was out and about one day and I knew I had to have it. It smells like fresh soil and cut grass! I love how it smells and especially how I get to respond when people ask: “What is it you’re wearing?? It smells so good!” “I’m wearing Dirt.”

I’m torn between 2 scents that I’ve fallen in love with! I love Michael Kors…I always gets asked what I’m wearing, every single time! I wore that on my wedding day, which was on a late summer afternoon/evening and it smelled lovely! But, I also am obsessed with Kai…I love the beach and this scent captures all of it in a bottle!

Normally day to day I wear Musk oil…but every now and then I gravitate towards anything by Burberry. I try not to wear purfumes that often since they give me such bad allergies…

I have extreme fragrance allergies so I can’t wear perfume or even be near someone who is wearing a lot or my throat closes up and I break out in hives and sometimes swell up (sigh) but I do enjoy essential oils. I love rose, lavender, and sometimes patchouli.

I have always had a bit of a perfume addiction :P I love a variety of scents such as Womanity by Thierry Mugler, Lola by Marc Jacobs, Pink Sugar by Aquolina and probably my all time favorite is Versace Bright Crystal. :) I normally wear a different one depending on what mood I am in that day or how I want to feel. I love your guys’ blog! Please keep it up!!!

I use Lola by Marc Jacobs everyday! It’s kind of a berry-like scent with a little bit of spice. I love it!

I’ve been wearing Burberry Brit for about four years now! But when I can’t get that Lucky You by lucky brand is my second choice.
