Maybe I don't say I love you enough
I said earlier this week that I find it very hard to say I have a favourite anything- I couldn’t tell you my most beloved film or song and I’m not even sure what my favourite colour is.
Given my love for perfume and wearing or trying different fragrances it is not surprising that I don’t have one scent I only wear. Perhaps surprisingly, given my refusal to be tied down by films or even a colour, I do see the appeal of having one scent that is eternally your fragrance, as much a part of you as the particular shade of your eyes or the way your hair parts.
I don’t write about my most adored fragrances nearly enough here- we got all caught up in trying what is new, or what is hard to find, or special editions and perhaps don’t write enough about what we love and have continued to love. So for the record, in no particular order, my favourite ten perfumes (at the moment!); the ones I think should live forever are:
Guerlain L’heure Bleue,
Guerlain Apres L’Ondee,
Guerlain Nahema pure parfum,
The Different company Sel de vetiver,
Caron Nuit de Noel,
and Ormonde Woman.
There are more loves but these ten scents are in the so wonderful I don’t quite know what to say category. I would like to find a jasmine for this list but the search continues.
