Signature Scent

Since having Elly I feel like my mind has settled down a bit and I am enjoying the quiet time to remember memories, sounds and smells from childhood (read: how I long to smell my childhood home again.)

I am sure many kids have distinct memories of what their Mom's smelled like.  I remember a scent that my Mom wore it came in a glass strawberry from Avon (bath gel maybe.) I still have the glass jar because I get such nice reminders from it.  I want Elly to have the same warm memories about a scent that I wear- so I started to think about all the signature scents I have had over time.

1.  Love's | Babysoft- earliest memory.
2. United Colors of Benetton | Colors- middle school-early high school.
3. Lagerfeld | Sun, Moon and Stars- Senior Year of High School.
4. Clinique | Happy- Just starting out.
5. Pacifica | Blood Orange- 20's.
6. Bath and Body Works | Lemon Vanilla - early 30s
7. Bvlgari |  Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc- Wedding Day.
8. Philosophy | Amazing Grace-  30's and the birth of Eleanor.

I love the way "amazing grace" works on me. When ever I wear it I often have strangers stop to tell me I smell great and women always ask me what I am wearing.  I notice that when the fragrance is right for you it's memorable for others.

What is your signature scent? Do you notice that it's changed over time?

  1. I have a bottle of Chanel No.5 that reminds me of my grandmother! I mix up my scents a lot. That is a good point about the memory. Apparently I need a signature scent!
