Scents and Sensibility – my favorite perfumes

I believe Coco Chanel said it best about perfume…

As much as I wish I had a signature scent ( a’la Marilyn Monroe with Chanel No. 5), I just can’t choose between a few favorites.

Perfume favorites - Stylishly Lived

Jo Malone – Wild Bluebell: I wrote about this one before.  It is sweet and lovely and lady-like.  A light floral.

Chanel – Coco Mademoiselle: A more sophisticated scent, with citrus and floral notes drying down to musk, patchouli and bourbon vanilla.

Kate Spade – Live Colorfully: I probably wear this the most.  Mostly because it is my husband’s favorite.  Light and feminine, I had a handsome French man stop me and tell me I smelled elegant.  That is a compliment.

Bvlgari – Omnia Crystalline: This is one is unique and I have never smelled someone else wearing it.  It is warmer than the others, on me the sandalwood, amber and bamboo really come out.  It smells soft and subtle, like what wearing cashmere would smell like.  Probably my favorite of the four.
