There are people in the world who choose to opt for their one an only fragrance and stick to it. Having signature scent is without a question sign of confidence, determination. I on the other hand choose not to settle and need to have diversity when it comes to makeup, skincare, haircare and most certainly perfumes. I have pattern of choosing perfumes depending on my mood, mindset and gut feeling. So having small array of fragrances comes handy in my life. While I decided not to include all my perfumes into this post, I picked out three rather different staples from my collection. These bottles stand every day side by side on my perfume stand and have served me well.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire is most certainly living its own life in the perfume world. It is classic yet very sleek and fresh scent to have. Guerlain has made a fabulous job on creating this perfume in so many variations. They all have different style of dresses enhancing the bottles, I have given the home for the cocktail dressed bottle. Its crystalline transparency, tinged with a delicate. powdery pink, reveals a sophisticated strapless dress, ready to dance!
Perfume itself has many faces tied together: fresh and floral, yet citrusy and musky. In the first wink bouquet of roses, jasmine and orange blossom takes flight to a delicate melody. The second whirl takes place as cherry, apple and blackcurrant enter the stage, refreshed by explosive green notes. Finally white amber notes are revealed and and a cloud of white musk envelops ensemble in a cosy halo. All this is resembling a chic dance party you attend when you want to feel special, wind down and remember yourself what you are worth. I choose La Petite Robe Noire when I want to feel better, need little bit of comforting and pick me up.
Giorgio Armani Sí in a form of eau de parfum intense which is stronger version of the original Sí. The scent itself is very confident, courageous and resembles 'take it all' mantra. Its glamorous mixture has seductive blackcurrant nectar, hint of silky freesia and chic intense chypre accord. Strong personality makes this scent perfect for times on confidence and braveness, only the smallest amount lasts very long on your body and makes you almost want to roar.
Burberry Brit Summer may be limited summer edition, but it gives a fresh much needed spark all year around. Its sparkling nature makes even the dullest day peacefully pleasant while still representing Burberry's class and refinement. A cool Japanese green tea accord mixed together with Italian lime crisp green almond and icy pear. The heart notes reveal a sheer sweetness through sugared almond and lush white peony. The dry base is a breezy blend of white musk, hints of amber and vibrating mahogany wood. This is the scent that combats the overcast and dreary weather outside at all times.
