Certain fragrances evoke all sorts of memories and emotions. Perfumes, for me doing this so much more. Catching a waft of a fragrance can transport me back to a certain moment, have waves of emotion hit, or have me looking round for an old friend. I love signature scents, that automatically remind me of a specific person and wish that I was able to have one myself - However, being far too fickle, I flit from one to the next.
In order to embed a signature fragrance, finding a scent which you can use in your body products and in your home in addition to wearing as a perfume is ideal. For each Monday in March I am going to be introducing you to a selection of fragrance which you can do just that, and for the majority, the brands have a range of scents to choose from too.
Annick Goutal is a Parisian Perfumery, which is evident in the beautiful bottles, the cut glass, ribbons and bows have just enough Parisian pomf. Eau d'Hadrien is, however, inspired by the tuscan landscape, with a lemon, mandarin and grapefruits ripened by the Italian sun. A super fresh but effortlessly elegant fragrance, it is beautiful for spring and summer (EDT 50ml £67 Selfridges)
I LOVE the candle, (£45 John Lewis) how beautiful is the monogrammed golden striped glass? To totally emerge your home in the lemon grove, you can add the diffuser and home spray to your collection too.
There is also a wealth of body products to immerse yourself in, including this perfumed shower gel (£21 Amazon) - which is perfect for a zesty wakeup.
I hope you've enjoyed the fist instalment of my 'Signature Scents' post - we also have my favourite Jo Malone Fragrance and Molton Brown's newest scent as well as other fragrance you might not have tried....
