I've been thinking about perfumes quite a lot lately. It may seem like a silly thing to ponder, but after thinking about them for a while, i realized they can play quite an important role in a woman's life - in her confidence, in her love life (hehe :), etc.
When i was younger, i would always spritz on a bit of "Fantasy" by Britney Spears - a sugary sweet scent, my signature at the time. After a few years, i grew out of that & turned to a more mature scent. Now, whenever i pass the perfume counter & see that round, pink bottle with green rhinestones on it, i spray a little bit & it always brings back memories of when i was little & wearing it :)
So many girls i know have experienced the same thing - a certain perfume taking her back to the days she used to wear it & bringing back memories from the past. This is one of the mains reason i find perfume to be so important, to spark those memories - it's not too bad smelling lovely either ;).

My signature scent for the past year & a half has been the famous Vera Wang "Princess". Princess is absolutely lovely - it's sweet, but not overbearingly so, and it's very original - i haven't smelled anything quite like it. I've noticed it's quite popular amongst beauty bloggers!
Now that i'm running scarily low on it, i've been contemplating my next move - do i repurchase Princess, or do i take the plunge & find a new signature scent?
I'm leaning more toward finding a new signature to be honest. The main reason why is because although i absolutely adore how Princess smells, it doesn't seem to last very long on me, probably because it's an eau de toilette - which is less concentrated & therefore less strong than an eau de parfum.
This is where you come in my lovelies! I would absolutely adore any suggestions you have on what my new signature scent should be!
I guess i should give you a little insight into what i like..i like a nice sweet scent, but not too floral-y (a la YSL Parisienne), and i would like to try something a bit more sexy :). I'm really open to trying anything though!
What scents bring back memories for you? :) What's your signature scent?
Remember to please leave suggestions! :)
