Here's something you don't yet know about me...
I have a slight perfume fetish. At least, I think I do. But you tell me! How many is too many?
My collection has sort of evolved over time. I have scents for Summer, for Winter, for work, for play... they are gathered from airports, received as gifts, bought on a whim on roadtrips... and still I feel there is room for more!
My current collection looks like this:
It consists of:
Creme Bouquet by Stila (my signature scent)
Prada (bought at Heathrow after visiting Prada in Italy and watching Devil Wears Prada!)
In Two Peony by Stella MacCartney (seemed a good Summery choice)
Chance by Chanel (a duty free purchase, not one of my faves)
Daisy by Marc Jacobs (hubby brought this back from NZ the week I had Elliott!)
Flowers by Kenzo (another duty free purchase, again not one of my faves!)
Romance by Ralph Lauren (my wedding scent)
Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf (love love love this fragrance)
Agent Provocateur (apparently Kylie Minogues fave!)
Pink Grapefruit (bought on a roadtrip down the Southern Highlands)
Rose Essentielle by Bvlgari (such a beautiful scent)
hmmm that looks like quite a list! And the irony is I can't wear any of them at the moment because of my newborn! But each of them has their place in my life at different times. The only one I could not live without is my Stila perfume. I've worn it for years, it sort of smells like talc and vanilla and flowers and is so sweet. Its been discontinued in Australia and so every time I run out I have to source it overseas and it is always quite an ordeal! I think I'm onto at least my 5th bottle!
Looking at my list, I am detecting a bit of a pattern; clearly I like flowery scents! I also note with interest there are no sporty perfumes on my list or perfumes by celebrities (unless you count Stella McCartney). And most of my bottles are pink!
On my wishlist for my next bottle (are you listening, Santa?) is Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. I smelled this in Myer the other day and swooned. How can I not own this yet?
Do you have a perfume fetish? What's YOUR 'signature scent?'
