When it comes to finding a signature fragrance, I must admit, that I am not one to know the first thing about it. That’s because I don’t have a “signature scent”, per se. Back when I was younger, thanks to a fabulous marketing campaign, I had always envisioned growing up and having Elizabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds be my signature scent. I mean who didn’t? I was a little girl, and Elizabeth Taylor was the epitome of class and elegance; the gowns, the diamonds, the glamour, I loved it all.
As I grew up and my personal style evolved, so did my perfume palette. Just like a new fashion trend that is hot one moment, and not so hot the next, I can’t keep up with all of the perfumes out there; it seems as if everyone from top designers to D list celebrities have a perfume out these days.
I don’t wear perfume daily, truth be told. I love rose water, so a quick mist of that over my face and neck, and I am good to go day-to-day. But there are classics that I love: Chanel No.5 or J’adore by Christian Dior. But I am always embracing new fragrances depending on my mood, or even the season! A quick stop in Sephora for mascara could turn into twenty minutes of me testing out the latest scents until my nose is numb.
So for all you indecisive ladies out there, here are my top 5 favorite fall fragrances in case you need some guidance!
