My Fragrance Evolution

My mom has always been one to  have a signature scent (or two). Growing up, I used to spray my blanket with her perfume of the time so that when I was sleeping at a friends or at camp, her smell stayed with me. To this day, if I catch a whiff of Cool Water or Calvin Klein Escape, I immediately think of my mom.

I started wearing perfume in high school- does anyone else remember RALPH? It was the "it" smell of the late 90s.  My collection of perfumes grew and changed over time. I started using different scents for day or night and the seasons.  Lighter in the summer, heavier in winter, of course. 

What's your fragrance evolution? 
Do you have different scents for day, night, summer, winter?

  3. Through my teens and college, I was all about mixing perfumes depending on my mood, but earlier this year I made it a goal to pick a signature scent. I settled on Kate Spade's Twirl, but just a week or so into wearing it my birthday came and went and I received Jack Wills' ladies' perfume as a gift from the boy! So by default, that became my signature, and I'm still very happy with it :)

  4. This is fab...I love it! I never thought of all the perfumes I used to wear through out my years, I should do this, it would be interesting to have a think of it. I have perfumes that give me certain memories as well :) I'm still on the search for a signature scent for my age now, but I will find one :) Have a great day doll x

  5. I used to collect perfumes while I was in hs, but now that I'm a few years into college I've settled on 4 perfumes: Ralph by Ralph Lauren, Chance by Chanel, Light Blue by Dolce and Gabbana, and Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I have those four on rotation.

    Xoxo,

  8. mine is Daisy (surprise!) by Marc Jacobs. I didn't pick it myself though, friends gave it to me, and it's such a lovely scent that it stuck with me!

    My Mom's is Channel No. 5 and that will always remind me of her!!

  10. Growing up, my mother wore Shalimar by Guerlaine. To this day if I get a whiff of it I'm transported back in time to my childhood. I've been wearing Light Blue by D&G for the past 15 years. I also sometimes wear Carolina Herrara's 212. It's probably time for a new scent :)
