Picking Your Signature Scent | How To

Scent is such a powerful thing. I love fragrances because they have the ability to encapsulate a moment in time. A memory. An emotion. Just one whiff of a fragrance can teleport you to years gone by and paint the most vivid image in your mind; perhaps even remind you of somebody.

Picking your signature fragrance can be time consuming, costly and overwhelming. My guide below will hopefully help you in pinpointing your signature fragrance.

Byredo? Sorry, Baeredo*

Have you ever smelt something that instantly transported you to a specific time and place? Did it evoke some kind of precious memory or make you feel reminiscent of moments gone by? I have always been so fascinated with fragrance and how strong the connection is between smell and memory. I am a huge collector of fragrance and pride myself on being able to recognize the fragrance of those passing by me (I meant that in the non-creepiest way possible…)


I feel a huge connection to the Swedish brand Byredo, and I couldn’t quite put my finger on why until I started doing some research on the brand.

Favourite Fragrances

Hey Everyone!

Goodness, it feels like it has been a lifetime since I have posted! I have had a lot going on lately – I moved houses and changed University courses to name a few things, so I’m very sorry I haven’t been as active. I hope you are all well!

Today I wanted to do a quick post listing my favourite fragrances all year round. I am a literal fragrance addict – I own around fifty or so different fragrances! Although I have a lot to choose from, there are six main fragrances that I wear all the time for any occasion and any season.


I like my fragrances to be feminine, sweet and generally floral as the photo indicates. My favourites in no particular order are:

– Miss Dior

– Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

– Chanel Coco Mademoiselle

– Benefit’s My Place or Yours Gina

– Taylor Swift’s Wonderstruck

– Chloe Signature

If you are wondering what my all time absolute favourite fragrance out of the six I listed above is, it is Benefit’s My Place or Yours Gina. I don’t know what it is about this scent but I am literally obsessed with it and I could sit there for hours smelling the bottle. That is how much I love it. The scent is just so ‘me’. It is feminine and sweet, yet at the same time it is a little woody and smokey. It is so sultry as well, and I feel like it is the perfect scent for a date – even though I wear it anytime!

I love hearing about other people’s favourite fragrances, what is yours?
