A woman isn’t complete without a signature scent that is hers. It’s as essential as the finishing touches to a beautiful painting.
(Hint: if it looks good and feels good, but smells bad… it’s bad. )
A few of my favourite perfumes include Lolita Lempicka Eau De Toilette, Chanel Allure and Salvatore Ferragamo’s Fascinating Night. I much prefer fruity and floral scents to spicy ones (ugh! ).
Fascinating Night Eau de Parfum 50ml bottle… Bought this at Lane Crawford @ Times Square, Hong Kong. They gave me a mini bottle as a free gift too.
This was a gift set that came with every purchase of the perfume– a Ferragamo cosmetic bag and a tube of Fascinating Night body lotion. Love the bag– it’s unbelievably useful when you need make your cosmetics collection portable. Perfumed body lotions also complement their parent perfumes very well.
Word of caution: never ever go for cheap scents! Perfume is made from about 78% to 95% of specially denatured ethyl alcohol and a remainder of essential oils, with perfume and eau de parfum being the costliest form of fragrance– 15 to 22% of essential oils. Many cheap scents use synthetic fragrances instead of essential oils and they smell just as they are– cheap. It’s olfactory crime.
And so it’s Valentine’s Day again, a day to celebrate with your sweetheart and revel in your feelings for each other. In your getup for your hot date, don’t forget to finish off with a tad of perfume here and there to complete your evening’s romantic experience.
Like Coco Chanel would advise, one should apply perfume to wherever one would like to be kissed.
