My Signature Scents

My Signature Scents

I don't know about you, but I am one of those people who associates smells with people and places. Like perfumes or aftershave, for example. I will often associate specific scents with people - like their signature scent. I had a friend at university who would always wear the same perfume whenever I saw her, I couldn't tell you the name of it though. But, if someone were to walk past me on the street wearing that exact perfume, I would always think of her. I can do it with ex-boyfriends too - if I smell an aftershave that they used to wear, it makes me think of them - even my back to my high school boyfriend! Please, in the comments, reassure me that I'm not the only one who does this. 

So, for today's post, I wanted to share with you three of my signature scents, that I'd like to think that people would recognise me by too. 

My Signature Scents

Jo Malone - Wood Sage & Sea Salt
You might have seen me raving about this scent in my July Favourites. I am totally obsessed with his fragrance. I had always lusted over Jo Malone fragrances, but it wasn't until my birthday this year that I finally treated myself to one. I had the most lovely time in the store picking my fragrance. The lady serving me was so attentive and patient, whilst I was smelling pretty much every fragrance in the store until I found the perfect scent for me. I'm definitely not into sweet, floral scents, so this is probably more on the masculine side, which I love. In terms of the notes (no, I'm not really sure what these mean either), the top note is Ambrette Seeds, the heart note is sea salt and the base note is sage. All in all leaving a really woody, earthy but light scent. I also love the staying power of this fragrance, it lasts all day.

Chanel - Coco Mademoiselle
I'm sure I'm right in saying that pretty much everyone has heard of this iconic scent. I first experienced this scent when I was a University and one of my friends was wearing it - from then I had to have it in my life. 6 years later it's still a scent that I adore. You might have seen this fragrance featured in Top 5 Fragrances post last year. This fragrance is a really nice mixture Orange, Jasmine, Rose and Patchouli. You might think that this doesn't exactly sound up my street. But, this mixture isn't too floral or sweet, it's a musky yet fresh scent - confusing I know! It's just complete luxury that I totally recommend you try.

Narcisco Rodriguez - For Her
This fragrance has probably been my longest loved fragrance. I first purchased this when I was in secondary school. I also talked about this in my Top 5 Fragrances post and shared how I have been wearing this scent, on and off, for 11 years. That's how you know it's a signature fragrance. The staying power of this scent is incredible, it last all day on the skin and even longer on your clothes. This is a really lovely, musky scent with hints of floral to keep the scent slightly feminine. The scent includes floral-fruity, amber and woody notes, making a really beautiful fragrance. 

What are your signature scents? I'd love for you to share them with me in the comments, or you can find me on Instagram and Twitter.
Love, Kate xx
