You would never know it now, but there was a time when I didn’t like perfume. As a teenager I remember tip toeing by my Aunts perfume collection and spraying on a bit of her Calvin Klein Eternity for Women, or Giorgio perfume. I took you way back with that one, huh? I was so excited when I received my own bottle of Liz Claiborne perfume as a gift. I proudly placed the blue triangular shaped bottle on the top of my dresser, right in the center.
I can’t remember exactly when, but sometime in my early 20’s, I started to dislike perfume. I would purchase a bottle of perfume, and a few days later couldn’t stand the smell of it on me. After a while, I decided that perfume wasn’t for me. I steered away from purchasing it for years, and body sprays from Bath and Body Works became the only scents I would wear.
It would be years later before I was re-introduced to perfume by my “cologne loving” husband. He was always shopping for different colognes, so I found myself at several perfume/cologne counters. I wanted to like perfume, but I just didn’t. My husband shared with me that I just needed to find the right perfume for me, and I had to be willing to invest a little money.
Well I decided to take his advice and the hunt was on to find the perfect perfume for me. I did, and now Moschino’s I Love, Love perfume is my signature scent.
After finding a perfume that I actually liked, I slowly started to try others. I now have many fragrances in my perfume collection, however, there are a few that I really love.
Here are my top 3 favorite perfumes:
Flora by Gucci– Sexy but subtle, this scent leads with a fruity/citrus smell with just a hint of floral.
I Love, Love by Moschino– A crisp light citrus scent, perfect for summer, and my signature scent.
Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs– This scent reminds you of a happy, sunny, easy going day. Notes of blackberry, grapefruit and pear.
Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet by Dior– Flirty, girly, and sensual all at the same time. Notes of orange essence, pink peony, and Damascus rose.
