Hello dear readers!
Today I will write to you about one of any girl’s favourite products – perfumes!
Some people have many different ones and choose which to wear according to the time of the day, their mood, where they’re going, etc (like me), others have their scent they fell in love with and would never ever change… Either way spraying a bit of our favourite fragrance makes us feel beautiful, sexy, fresh and why not, somewhat more powerful than before…
Perfume should be applied before all else: before getting dressed, putting on your make up and above all before putting on any jewelery – if you are wearing pearls beware not to let your perfume anywhere near them. This way the perfume will dry well and not stain your make up, clothes and accessories. I usually put perfume on the sides of my neck, close to the ears, and on my wrists. I think the scent becomes more uniform, delicate and pleasant if you apply a tiny bit on many parts of your body. Always remember that a delicate scent is always better than being heavily sprayed with perfume, you will smell and feel more sophisticated. It is also prohibitive to wear perfume to go to the gym, your pilates, yoga, ballet session etc – it can be very unpleasant for the people working out around you.
You should always try a perfume on your skin before buying it for each skin changes the final scent. Most stores will have coffee beans available to neutralize your smelling senses between attempts to find your scent so that the previous perfume you smelled won’t remain and influence the way you smell the next.
Here are my favourite perfumes that I always replace:
Mary Greenwell’s Plum – it is the most luxurious scent I ever came across! It is rich and sophisticated, classic and balanced – it makes me think of the MET Ball and what the fabulous people attending it must smell like, I don’t know why! But really, it smells of fabulousity. Not to speak of the packaging: I fell in love with the bottle’s lid! It’s heavy and feels like a full piece of gold, just amazing (and if you’ve being living under a rock Mary Greenwell is obviously one of the greatest make up artists of all time). This is definitely a party, dinner, amazing date or night out scent.
Petite Cherie by Annick Goutal – I’ve had it for many years and it is a very feminine, delicate and rich scent. When I put it on I feel like myself, it is a scent I am familiar with and love how reacts on my skin. It is one of those perfumes you can wear day and night, and is thus perfect for bringing along when travelling.
J’adore Dior – Again another feminine, floral perfume that I just keep replacing even if it’s not my favourite amongst these! It is easy to wear, it is not too strong, and on my skin becomes even more delicate so I feel it is very appropriate for day time, going to the movies or an easy night out. I really like its bottle and I love the travel sized ones my mom got me recently.
Chanel No. 5 – Classic, sophisticated and eternal. Every woman should invest in one at some point.
Here are mine:
Also remember perfumes should be stored in dark, fresh places (not your bathroom!) otherwise they’ll go bad.
