Fragrance is one of my favorite beauty products. Fragrance is tied to my earliest memories, my deepest emotions. When I was little, my mother wore Caron's Fleur de Rocaille and on very special occasions she would take a golden drop and gently apply it behind my ears and touch it down the part of my hair and brush it down the length. Then she would smile, kiss me and tell me that there, I was ready. To this day, I don't feel fully dressed and ready to go until I have applied fragrance and put some in my hair.
I suppose that my early experience as well as my natural inclination attracts me to very feminine scents. I love florals. Florals like Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb. This extravagant explosion of Sambac Jasmine, Centifilia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Fressia and Patchouli is sexy, womanly, sophisticated and has just a hint of an edge. It is a gorgeous scent that I only had to smell once and knew that I had to have in my life, forever. This fragrance is spendy, I have the mini with the refill that I buy in the impulse section at Sephora. I'd buy the five ounce bottle and everything Flowerbomb, if I could afford it!
Philosophy's Amazing Grace is my favorite everyday scent. This light, clean, very fresh scent is the perfect. delicate blend of Bergamot, Muget Blossoms with a hint of Musk to grab and spritz on anytime. I often spray on Amazing Grace and then put Flowerbomb on my pulse points. It's a scent combination that just works. And one that never fails to get the husband leaning in close for an extra sniff. Or two.
