Beauty: What's Your Scent

Today, we are talking scents.  Not sense, because that's a whole other topic for another day and my thoughts on peoples' lack there of... I mean, back to perfume!  I am kind of a perfume hoarder.  I fall in love with a scent and keep it for a long time.  I wear the same ones over and over again, and most of mine have a similar style to them.

I tend to stick to fragrances that have meaning to them, because the scent brings back happy memories.  I rarely switch things up and have worn the same handful for years and years.  Every so often a newbie makes its way into the rotation, and someone else drops out.  For the most part I stick to powdery scents and floral scents.  I generally avoid musky, deeper scents, but have recently started adding them in (change is good!)  

Gucci Envy Me - This is what I wore on my wedding day and is hands down my favorite perfume ever.  I love the soft, powdery, feminine scent.  It makes me so happy and reminds me of being young and carefree (aka pre-children.)  I have worn this for years and continue to repurchase it because I just love it so much.

Victoria's Secret Noir Tease  - This is a body splash that I love.  File that under things I never thought I would say over the age of 20.  It's not the glory days of the VS body splashes back in the early 2000's (I'm talking about you Love Spell and Pear Glace!) I got this after asking someone at a party who smelled so damn good what she was wearing.  I was so shocked that it was this, but picked it up (only $15!) and have used it since.  I like to toss it in my gym bag and spray when I am going from a class to run errands.

Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia Cologne - My mom gave me a bottle of this for Christmas last year and I fell in love with it.  I have since repurchased it twice, I love it so much.  It's very floral and feminine and not my usual powdery type scent.  I just adore how this smells on.  It's like nothing else and smells differently on everyone who wears it.

Creed Love in White - Creed is the holy grail of perfume, and this particular scent is that for me.  It's my special occasion scent, and I love it more every time I wear it.  It's light, it's powdery, it's subtle and it's unique.  As much as I love powdery scents, so many of them begin to smell the same; this one is different.  

Inkling Sexy - This came in my FabFitFun box and I was so surprised by how much I love it!  It's a roll on, so it's great for travel.  It's a steal ($25 for a full set) and a great, unique scent.  It's muskier and definitely more of a Fall/Winter fragrance.  I generally don't go for the deeper scents, but this comes off very feminine and has hidden floral notes.  LOVE!

I don't leave my house without putting one of these on. I'm a big believer in wearing a scent to make me feel put together (even in sweats and no makeup!)  It's just one of those things that we all have.  What am I missing out on?  Tell me below!

Have a fabulous day babes! -xx

  1. I have so many scents that bring back memories too! I am on the hunt for a new one for this winter though!

  2. Oh man, I love me some perfume! I have a post like this in my drafts, too. I vary between my scents depending on the season and my mood. My parents brought me back some perfume from Paris and it is my absolute favorite! My second favorite is my Givenchy, so pretty!

  3. I have yet to find a favorite scent! Will have to test some of these out.

  4. Well I dont have any of these so that has to change! But my favorite D&G Light Blue - takes me back to freshman year of college (summer) so much fun! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. These sound so good - I like a good powdery scent. I've been using Paris Hilton Can Can for YEARS! I love how sweet it is, it's a fun scent. I also use a Burberry scent - I forget the exact name of it.

  6. I used to love that VS body spray, and now you just had me all nostalgic for Love Spell <3
