Let's fix that!
Me: Here is an exhaustive list of every single one of my signature scents throughout my lifetime.
My 1st Signature Scent: Glow by JLo. I thought I was an adult but I was 10 years old. I put on this and lip gloss and thought I was hot shit. The cheap fake necklace strung around the bottle made me feel rich. I have 0 recollection of what it smelled like. This perfume was the moment.
Tell me you remember this iconic bottle?!
During the next few years of my life there is fragrance turmoil. A friend who turned out to be a sociopath gave me a stolen bottle of Bvlgari perfume and said the smell reminded her of me (it smelled really bad). I wore it a few times but got headaches. I would take mini samples of Jo Malone perfumes and swap those in an out of my rotation (wood sage & sea salt, pear & freesia, and pomegranate noir which I still wear to this day). I think I even wore Marc Jacobs fragrances at some point, which I'm sorry Marc I love your clothing dearly, but the scents aren't good. Then one day I was at Sephora and I smelled a sample of Maison Margiela "REPLICA" in Beach Walk and it snapped me out of my fragrance funk. It smells like the beach (yes, it was Kramer's idea)—smell it and you'll get it.
My 5th Signature Scent:
This one is still a summer favorite
My 7th and Current Signature Scent:
Now that I'm looking back at all the perfume choices I've made throughout my life, I'm realizing that I'm just a fragrance sheep who more or less wore the most popular perfumes of the moment (minus you, my beautiful Cacharel). This next one is a perfect example of that; I walked into to Le Labo to see what all the fuss that Santal 33 was about (THE perfume of NYC) and left with Thé Noir.
I do have some honorable mentions for perfumes that I like to wear to break up my Thé Noir routine; Gucci Bloom, 1989 by Alyssa Simone, and last but certainly not least, Love, Don't Be Shy by Killian. This perfume was released in 2007, but has had a resurgence in popularity since Rihanna admitted that it is HER signature scent. I had to know what she smelled like so I bought the smaller bottle, and I'm really happy I did.
