We’ve probably all been there, standing in a perfumery or a department store, walls covered with pretty bottles, not knowing where to start. I know I always felt a little lost (and still do). So I usually chose the easy way out and opted for the it-scent of the moment; Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, DKNY Delicious, you name it. I liked the smell of course, I’m not that easy, c’mon! But they never stuck. Most scents give me a headache after a few hours and I also didn’t like the fact that I knew at least three other girls who wore the same fragrance as me (I’m such a diva. I wish you could see my Mariah hand movements. Spot on!).
Now I’m not someone who wears a different scent every day or who has a perfume for different occasions. I prefer to stick to one option until the bottle is empty. I tried to find my signature scent. You know, that scent by which you are able to recognize someone when they walk into a room. It took me a while, but I have finally found mine: Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules. I’ve been wearing it for several years and still love it. It’s the most subtle and unusual scent that slowly develops on your skin. You can hardly smell it yourself, but the people around you can. It’s amazing, it disappears and reappears throughout the day and it’s lasting power is incredible. I’ve received so many compliments, even from people I hardly know. I bought my third bottle last week.
Are you a one-scent woman or do you like to keep your options open? What are your favorite scent(s)?
