We love perfume because it does something very special: it’s able to enhance your mood and change your behaviour.
Any lady would love to smell good, it just makes us feel more attractive, you know? Christian Dior said that “Perfume is the indispensable complement to the personality of women, the finishing touch on a dress.” I, for sure, feel naked without it.
However, finding your signature perfume can prove to be somewhat challenging for some of us with so many scents and brands on the market.
The question is: How can you know which fragrance will make you feel like you can conquer the world?
“The perfume is what they remember”
Here are my recommendations:
UNTOLD – Elizabeth Arden
This one reminds me of my high school years, because I used to wear it a lot as a teenager. Untold is a sweet, sensual, and sophisticated fragrance.
Its top and middle notes include pink pepper, egyptian jasmine, and cassis, which give it a spicy and floral aroma that doesn’t pack too much of a punch. Its bottom notes of amber and musk are warm, smoky, and intoxicating to the senses.
Someone said that “There is a Untold story behind every modern woman who is thriving in her life’s journey” and I couldn’t agree more, giving the fact that it was my favourite perfume during my teenage journey.
EUPHORIA – Calvin Klein
My all time favourite, this perfume longs to be noticed. Every time I wear this fragrance, I feel like I’m the best version of myself. It’s just something about it that makes me feel more attractive, powerful, like I’m able to accomplish everything I want to.
Its original blend of sparkly and sweet ingredients is simply irresistible. The woody, oriental scent has notes of pomegranate, black violet, black orchid, and mahogany.
This is the fragrance for stepping out on a date you don’t want to forget.
ARMANI CODE – Giorgio Armani
The perfume that I love to wear whenever I have my favourite black silk dress on. This is probably because when you smell it, you simply feel like stamping yourself with the signature style of an Italian label synonymous with luxurious fashion.
The top notes are Italian orange, jasmine, and bitter orange, followed by orange blossom and ginger middle notes. A strong honey base note is accompanied by vanilla and sandalwood.
So put on your best-loved black dress and pour yourself a glass of wine while wearing Armani Code, you’ll thank me later.
GOOD GIRL – Carolina Herrera
First things first, the bottle it’s shaped like a sensuous stiletto heel so every time I remove it from the box I feel like the Donna inside me comes alive (PS: you need to watch Suits to understand what I mean, if you haven’t already, I hope you have though).
Good Girl celebrates the contrasting nature of women, mysterious and feminine. The deep, rich aroma of roasted coffee beans and sweet almonds are top notes that tempt your senses that give way to floral heart notes of sweet jasmine and creamy tuberose.
I’ll just insert one of Donna’s quotes so I can express the feeling that you get whenever you have this fragrance on: “If you were ever lucky enough to have me, you wouldn’t want to share.”
SIGNORINA ELEGANZA – Salvatore Ferragamo
This one is a new addition to my collection; I discovered it 2 months ago and I fell in love immediately. I don’t know if it’s the bottle or the smell, but it just gives you that princess vibe whenever you have it on. This perfume is a celebration of chic girls with a sophisticated, subtly cheeky and fresh scent signature.
Signoria, which means “young woman” in Italian, describes the fragrance perfectly. This scent combines the notes of juicy grapefruit, tangy pears, osmanthus, almond and patchouli.
So all I have left to say is: every girl wants to feel like a princess sometimes, and this is the best accessory you can wear when you feel like it.
