When it comes to fragrances, I am very picky and somewhat conservative. I repurchase the same aromas over and over again, but I could never stick to just one bottle of perfume.
In my opinion, a fragrance is one of the best tools to express your mood and feel your best. Not to mention that it’s a major seduction weapon that helps to spice things up a little bit.
I still remember my first perfume and the circumstances I started using it. It was my 14th Birthday that I celebrated with my family in Minsk. My auntie Natasha brought me a present and said, “You are a woman now and it’s time to find your own scent.”
I carefully opened the package so I can save a shiny silver paper and use it for one of many DIY projects I was working on, and here it was… Iceberg Twice by Iceberg. I inhaled a rich, perhaps too heavy for my age aroma… and I was sold!
Ever since that time, I am using perfume almost every day. Of course, my collection is much bigger now, but I still remember all occasions when I found or received as a gift a new addition to my collection. Today, I’d like to share with you my most favorite fragrances of all time.
Ralph by Ralph Lauren
This is a perfume that I am picking when I am wearing something preppy. I know, it’s silly to match the scent to your outfit, but I just can’t help myself as I am thinking of RL brand as of stereotypically preppy company.
Nina by Nina Ricci
This sweet and cool scent that I repurchased so many times that I can’t even count. The brand launches a few additions to this classic fragrance, but I am still faithful to my old favorite.
Escada Turquoise Summer
It’s the lightest fragrance from the list, which makes it so perfect for summer. It adds just a few notes of sweetness and thus qualifies as the best aroma to wear in the Hamptons.
This perfume features a gorgeous combination of notes and beats the rest of the list with its long-lasting qualities. I recommend applying just one spritz of this fragrance, as it might be too much aroma for people around you.
This fragrance is the latest addition to my collection and I can’t get enough of it. Sweet, sexy, unique—these are the terms that come to mind when I am thinking about this fragrance. I am also certain that it’s perfect for any occasion!
Ultraviolet Paco Rabanne
I tried this fragrance back in my teen ages and couldn’t find ever since. When I finally found and ordered a bottle of that fragrance — oh, boy! — it’s still amazing!
Cool Water Davidoff
This sweet and fresh fragrance that I am usually having as a backup option to my favorite Kenzo fragrance. This perfume is not as strong as the one by Kenzo, but I still love wearing it when I bored with my everyday fragrance.
This limited-edition fragrance is difficult to find and hard to forget. It’s one of these unique aromas that you could never forget. Every time I am going to Europe, I am hunting on this particular perfume, as it seems to be more popular outside of the U.S.
This fragrance is a special occasion option as it provides a rich and long-lasting aroma. It’s one of the most seductive perfumes on the market that feels luxurious to wear.
L’Eau Par Kenzo
It’s a perfect everyday fragrance that is gentle enough to wear to work or any daytime occasion. It’s my number one choice in any situation!
That was a tour of my fragrance collection. I hope this nostalgic post reminded you of some wonderful perfume-related memories too! Please feel free to share your favorite perfume options with the Style Sprinter community.
