The Scent Of A Woman



Ok, hands up, who remembers wearing perfume such as LouLou and Charlie when they were a teen? (Yep, nods. raises hand) My "signature scent" when I was a teen was the rather glorious, Giorgio Beverley Hills, damn I loved that perfume. I imagine that if I smelled it now, I would be instantly transported back to 1990. Falling in love for the first time, and extremely good music.

I used to own so many different types of perfume as well, I was a teenage sensory migraine,  no signature scent, just random smells depending on what was closest in the morning.

NOW, well ok, now I think I have it together. My signature scent is Jo Malone, Red Roses. In fact that is pretty much the only perfume that I wear now. I love the smell of roses and so many people had recommended buying it as it was long lasting, I thought I would give it a go. I have worn this perfume nearly every day for almost a year and can you see how much I still have in the bottle?

I am tempted to buy another perfume, so that I can alternate, keep the Red Roses as my signature scent and find another one that I can wear as more of a day fragrance.

Do you have a favourite fragrance? Either a Jo Malone scent you can recommend I try, or something else? What do you wear? Do you do day perfumes and evening perfumes?



Let me know.

  1. Lime, Basil & Mandarin/Pomegranate Noir are both good.
    I'm using Frosted Cranberry from The Body Shop at the minute because I am one cool bitch (plus it was on offer for about £5 at the time so why not)

  3. I wore White Musk and Iris everyday, layering with their other scents to tailor to the occassion or day. Gutted when it was discontinued. Still found nothing to compare.

  4. I definitely have day and night perfumes. Cheaper , lighter ones for work. Loving l'occitane Vitoria regal day - was €17.50 for 100ml. It's an eau de cologne and light which is good as some kids I work with can be sensitive to perfumes. My favourite night perfume is narcisso Rodriguez for her. Love. My fiancĂ© has bought me the lighter version l'eau de narcisso for Christmas - it be my wedding perfume :) I love Jo Malone peony and blush suede too!

  7. Another Jo Malone addict. Lime Basil and mandarin and I sometimes layer it with Jo Malone sea salt and wood sage. Have you tried www.fragrantica.com it's a great website for fragrance. Also it has a "if you like this try this" section.

  10. The only perfume I wear is Cerutti 1881, but I totally adore the smell of roses so I think I may have to try out Jo Malone.
    As a side note, my mum use to be an Avon rep so as a teen I would use all her sample perfumes x

  13. I tend to have a few on the go at the minute I'm switching between Marc Jacobs Daisy, Chanel Chance and Paul Smith Rose. I bet you'd like that Paul Smith one actually if you love this Jo Malone one x

    1. I LOVED Paul Smith Rose. I had a huge bottle of it, can't believe i forgot it existed. may have to get a bottle as back up rose smells

  14. I love peony and blush suede but I find that it doesn't last on me which is really annoying. My current favourite perfume is La petite robe noire couture by guerlain (the one shoulder dress). Funny you mention loulou. I smelt it (along with anais anais) in Dublin airport the other day. Made me smile to myself.
