Scent of a woman...

It's that time of month again...a fragrance post! I realise I am unhealthily obsessed, but the entire fragrance industry is just far too classy not to devote so much attention to. We all have our "fool proof" perfumes - not feeling so crash-hot? Spritz on your favourite perfume and it can make all the difference in the world. So now let us discuss...

J'Adore by Dior.
I wore this all through winter, it's definitely a favourite of mine for colder weather. It is supposed to be spring at the moment, but the chill just isn't letting up so far. But hey, I don't mind keeping my beautiful bottle of J'Adore out for another few weeks.

Daisy, by Marc Jacobs.
I heard that Marc Jacobs named this fragrance after the character Daisy from F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. I won't lie, that is a little off-putting. I hated Daisy after finishing the book, and didn't want to believe that such a beautiful perfume could be named after her. But it's easy to block out the negatives, and focus on the positives, in which case the scent itself is perfectly fitting of the setting, if nothing else. Summer on the water. It can't be denied that Daisy is, after all, sunshine in a bottle.

What is your favourite scent(s) this season?

I actually haven't tried either of these but now I rather want to.
I did fall madly in love with the kate spade twirl sample I got however.

I never use perfume but I always take my mom's perfume bottles as decorations once she has finished them :D Ahh, so many lovely things on this earth to collect!

Daisy, that is a nice name : >

Puffy dogs wagging their tails,


i'm now in love with the newest scent of balenciage with charlotte gainsbourg at the moment. i think it's important for a woman to stay sweet with her own unique scent. haven't tried daisy myself though.
