  43. My favourite is Jo Malone Red Roses, my husband bought it for me when we lived in London years ago as a special cheer me up gift after a terrible day at work, so I always smile when I wear at that memory.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I bought my first Jo Malone fragrance in London 13 years ago. I was feeling homesick, and this particular scent reminded me of the beach house that I would visit with my family. A couple of years later at work one of my colleagues starting sniffing the air saying "who's wearing sunscreen?" (it is French Lime Blossom)!

    My favourite is her first scent - Nutmeg and Ginger. People always ask what I'm wearing. A close second is the Lime, Basil and Mandarin.

  50. I started wearing Beautiful on my honeymoon 19 years ago and hubs buys me a bottle every year. He loves it too. Every once in a while, I'll wear something unexpected and he'll comment on the new scent in a snuggle. But when I go 'home' to my fragrance, he breathes in a little deeper. I love that.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm always a bit embarrassed when I get asked what sent I'm wearing. It's "very sexy" by Victoria's Secret. Talk about snooty! haha I love this Kate Spade set.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  95. What a generous give-away! My favourite perfume is Beyond Paradise by Estee Lauder, but I was inspired by some of the other comments about 'scent'. I adore vanilla and also lavender. Vanilla because it makes me want to gobble things up - reminds me of rich custards or milk-bottle lollies. Lavender because it is so relaxing and heavenly. I love the perfume bottles in your header image!
