Being 15, it’s pretty hard to pin down your ‘signature scent’ so on the weekend I set out to buy some more perfumes for my ‘scent wardrobe’. I couldn’t just run into a department store and sniff every perfume, I did quite a bit of research based on perfumes and other scents that I love, ie. Miss Dior Cherie, MJ Daisy, Lancome Poeme, Ralph by Ralph Lauren and various Victoria’s Secret body sprays. Turns out I favour gourmand(food and dessert related) and Chypre (citrus and moss) fragrances with a patchouli base note and strong disliking for Oriental scents or anything too musky. I made a list and very soon I returned with CKIN2U (I’ve loved in2u ever since it came out in 2007, I had a bottle but I left it in China), Gucci by Gucci (the ad, Natasha poly, Raquel zimmerman and freja beha, need I say more?) and Juicy Couture (Hate their track suits but this perfume is just amazing, do you believe in love at first sniff?).
Packaging/the bottle is important for me too, one of the reasons why I love Miss Dior Cherie so much is the super cute glass bottle with a silver bow and MJ Daisy with the rubber daisies. I love the Juicy and Gucci bottles but CKIN2U is boring but I already knew that and it doesn’t matter!
Hehe a little family, I share some of it with my mum. I think Eau Mega by Victor and Rolf, Flora by Gucci another bottle of Miss Dior Cherie are next!
