Know Your (Perfume) Notes!
There was a great article in InStyle’s recent Makeover magazine about why one scent will appease one and turn off another. It’s by Faye Penn and got me thinking - what draws you to a fragrance? The name? The shape of the bottle and packaging? Both? When it comes down to it, you really have to have a connection to the notes and if there’s one thing I have learned over the years in trying out all kinds of fragrances, you really have to know your notes. Go grab your favorite fragrances off your vanity and do a google search to find out what notes are inside them. See if there is a pattern. There will probably be vastly different ones depending if you wear it for day or night. Just something to think about as there are so many to choose from these days and more coming out every day or so it seems.
One that is hitting the spot for me right now is YVES SAINT LAURENT or YSL’s new Parisienne Eau de Parfum Spray. It’s a woody floral, which I found out here I am a fan of. Who knew?? You’ll sniff notes like blackberry, cranberry, peony, damask rose and sandalwood. What stands out by far with this one is the rose. I’m declaring this a true rose fragrance so if you are a fan, check this one. $39/1oz, $65/1.6oz, $85/3.5oz, $40/6.6oz Perfumed Body Lotion @ nordstrom.com.
