I don’t know anything about perfume, but I’m interested in finding myself a signature scent. The opportunity to sample a large number of scents in rapid succession arrived in the form of a large stack of magazines my friend was getting rid of. I have finally made my way through all of them, and while I threw out about half, I still have a sizeable stack of finalists left. I plan to get more samples of what’s left for another go-round and then just keep narrowing down the stack.
Here’s what I’m left with:
- Versace Bright Crystal
- Calvin Klein Euphoria
- Lancome La Vie Est Belle
- Jo Malone London Mimosa & Cardamom
- Michael Kors Sexy Amber
- Michael Kors 24K Brilliant Gold
- Michael Kors Glam Jasmine
- Marc Jacobs Decadence
- Marc Jacobs Daisy
- Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream
- Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh
- Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet
- Miss Dior Eau de Toilette
- Miss Dior Eau de Parfum
- Chanel Chance
- Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
- My Burberry
- Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium
- Elizabeth Arden Untold
- Elizabeth Arden Untold Absolu
- Modern Muse Le Rouge
In short, there are a heck of a lot more perfumes out there than I even realized before taking on this mission, and I have no idea what I want. Just relieved I managed to pave it down this far!
One thought I had is that I might just have two signature scents: Something spicy and woodsy for winter, and something fresh and floral for all the hot months.
Thoughts? What scents do you all like?
