The first impression I give people is usually a lasting one, although the initial impact is usually my "inside voice" how I smell is very important to me. Whether it's in my personal or professional life I always look for my scent to compliment my large personality without overshadowing it. So to help out my brand in person I thought it was important to establish a fragrance collection and, select my signature scent.
My aesthetic is generally simple, clean, with a hint of throwback and I wanted my scent to reflect that. So, in my quest to discover my signature scent I've tested the waters across the board (thank you Sephora lol). So here are my picks for my shelf:
Scent #1: Dolce & Gabana Light Blue
Although, this one isn't my signature scent it does embody everything I look for in a fragrance. If you’re looking for a scent that isn't heavy, but will still have people intrigued this throwback is worth its weight in gold. The sweet light notes in it made it a perfect spring scent.
Scent #2: Polo Orange
Polo has always been near and dear to my heart. As a self proclaimed prepster I love the classiness polo brings to the table. The hints of grapefruit and smoked wood cuts the severe scent polo has been known for making it more of an everyday scent, just not for my signature. The marriage of the masculine & feminine elements made it perfect for Summer.
Scent #3: Bond No. 9 Black Bottle
It may seem like an odd choice to select a unisex scent as my signature but, Bond No. 9 earned it. The hints of coffee, vanilla, sandalwood, and cacao blend seamlessly with my natural scent. The price, size, availability, and slight anonymity of this brand make it a perfect choice for someone who wants something popular without smelling like everyone else. The white bottle which is very similar became a great fall scent.
When building your fragrance collection keep in mind your personal style, and focus less on the brand name. Expensive doesn't always equal amazing. If you would like to grab a bottle of my favorite scent click here.
