To me, perfume is something very special. An individual scent can conjure up so many different memories, and my memories are based around scent a lot of the time. Sometimes I'll smell something and randomly feel transported back to a childhood holiday, because the smell in the air is what I remember. Those of you that know me know I smell everything. My family laugh at me because when I was little I used to go round smelling them all… It was a comforting thing I think, to know their smell, it made me feel peaceful… *awkward face.
Perfume is so unique, it smells different on everyone, reacting differently with skin types and pheromones. It’s such a science, mixing individual notes together to create one fabulous smell. I love it.
My two favourite perfumes in all the world are:
Escentric Molecules Molecule 01: If you want compliments all the time, this is the perfume for you. Not a day goes by, when I wear this perfume, that someone doesn’t compliment me on it. It is unisex, and instead of having a mixture of notes, it is made with just one molecule; the aroma-chemical Iso E Super. This is what usually goes into a perfume to make the notes more prominent, but on its own it adapts to your pheromones and smells different on everyone. You can’t smell it on yourself, which is a tad annoying, but every so often you may get a little whiff of it. To me it smells slightly woody, it’s very hard to descirbe.
Trust me when I say, it suits everyone and you will not regret splurging on this.
My next favourite is Germaine de Capuccini Le Jardin de Carmen Vidal Fragrance - Kokura: A mouthful I know.
This fragrance is beautiful on its own or layered over the top of Molecule. I like to have things no-one has heard of and this one was my little secret.
Top note: Mandarin, Lemon, Green Tea.
Middle note: Cherry Flower, Orchid, Jasmine, Freesia.
Base note: Sandalwood, Cedar, Musk.
I love the more musky, masculine scents. I’d describe this scent as delicate but fiery. A concoction of all my favourite smells in one perfume, no wonder I love it so much.
I have recently got into ‘layering’ my fragrances, it’s nice to change it up a bit every once in a while. I've decided one day I'd like to create my own fragrance...
What are you favourite perfumes? Are you loyal to just one scent, or do you have a variety?
Lots of Love,
