I know I am not alone when I say this ... Every time I go on the hunt for a new perfume to add to my wardrobe I feel that the process is a bit daunting and overwhelming. There are so many different scents and each one is quite diverse. I am sure we could all probably agree that Target has been killing the home decor department for years and we all wished Chick-Fil-A was open on Sundays, but bring up your new favorite perfume in a room full of your besties and suddenly we find ourselves in a battle of the perfumes.
WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE SCENT? DO YOU CHANGE UP YOUR PERFUME BASED ON THE OCCASION,
OR DO YOU HAVE ONE SIGNATURE SCENT YEAR-ROUND?
I like to think I have a signature scent as Chris always used to tell me when he thought of me he would think of the perfume I wore when we first started dating (& still wear from time to time) Candy by Prada, it is in the warm and spicy fragrance family. However when I wear it, it gives of a sugary/ playful scent. Odd how that works right?!
Truthfully, I don't think I have a signature scent. I love the idea of having one, however I like to keep it interesting and mix things up. Today, I am breaking down each scent & why I love it!
Bloom By Gucci
It is a newer scent of Guccis and I absolutely adore it. I tested it at Nordstroms with my mom one day awhile back, after testing it on my wrist we went on with our shopping trip and made it a point to drop back into Nordstroms before going home so I could purchase it.
I seriously couldn’t stop smelling my wrist. Bloom is a light, fresh floral fragrance and I LOVE it!
Guilty Black By Gucci
This has been a favorite of mine for quiet sometime now. I remember walking by the perfume section in Ulta on the hunt for a new blowdryer and another customer sprayed it as I was walking by. I obviously couldn't resist. The notes are Sweet Lychee, Lilac and Wild Strawberry so it is definitely a sweeter scent. Although it is on the sweeter side it is also very light which I think is great for the workenvironment.
Candy By Prada - aka My Favorite Date Night Perfume
Unfortunately I wasn't able to photograph this one because I had run out and didn'thave a change to replenish it before my shoot. But, Candy by Prada is definitely my go-to scent for date night. I love it for this special and sometimes rare occasion for the same reason as I mentioned above. This specific scent always brings Chris back to when we first started dating, so I like to wear it on date nights to kinda keep the light hearted fun "alive" if you will from when we first started dating.
Bright Crystal By Versace
So I actually have two go-to scents for a girls night out. 1st up on the list is Bright Crystal by Versace is always my go-to for girls' night out because it is a super flowery/ flirty scent. When I think of girl time I think of pretty much all things girly and when I think girly I think of pink, flowers and flirtatiousness. The notes are Pomegranate, Peony, Magnolia and Lotus flower. 2nd on the list is a perfume my mom actually passed down to me, Dolce by Dolce & Gabanna. I absolutely love it and always get SO many compliments when wearing it. This is also a super feminine and flirty scent. Its notes are white daffodil, white water lily, cashmere and sandalwood. Every time I spray it I am instantly reminded on the smell of walking into a flower shop. It is super sweet but also has an "outdoorsy" scent as well.
What are your current favorite scents?
