My Current Perfume Preferences

My Current Perfume Preferences
My current scent craves and faves are some that you have seen before here on my blog, like Auto portrait by Olfactive Studio, and Petite Chérie by Annick Goutal, and I do still immensely enjoy Été by Laggridore. I find these scents to be sexy yet soft. They seem to enhance my appeal rather then be the appeal, which is what I believe perfume really should do. I can’t think of anything more faux pas in terms of beauty, than a woman who fills an entire room with her own perfume that she has sprayed on in incredibly offensive amounts. My scents are intimate, and personal, and are meant for the delight of two people, me, and Chéri, only. And while I am still crazy for all of these scents… I have encountered a new one that has been added to my collection of olfactive delights : Eau de Lingerie, by Guerlain. It has become one of the scents I can’t get enough of. I spray it on EVERYTHING : my clothes, my scarves, my pillows… It is a scent to be used on fabrics, not skin. And to me it smells like the softest, most delightful hug ever. There is a tenderness to this scent, that is so gentle and discreet that I tend to reapply more than once a day.
My collection of perfumes is becoming rather fancy and fun yet remains rather unique, I like to think anyway…
And then there are the perfumes I love on Chéri!

I will let you in on my three favorites…

I got him Serge Noir for Christmas. It’s my new obsession on him. It has the slightest hint of sweetness infused into a wooded fragrance. Drives me crazy! (In a good way). 😉
And of course I still love his Gris Clair by Serge Lutens as an every day scent. It’s a fresh yet warm scent.
For occasional evenings, more in the warmer months, I love smelling Duel by Annick Goutal on him. It’s slightly flirty and entirely elegant.

What are your favorite scents? And what does your chéri wear?

Nécessaire de Beauté – Serge Lutens

P1160034
Recently I was graciously invited to join a small panel of bloggers for a presentation of the Serge Lutens make-up line and what he calls the “nécessaire de beauté”. Beauty essentials. I love the Serge Lutens boutique at Palais Royal and have purchased and tested several of his perfumes. I love his work for its originality, it’s search for artistry with a palette of scents, and the way his perfumes can whisk me away somewhere else or invoke a striking emotion. So, of course I was curious to discover what he can do with make-up.

Récemment on m’a gracieusement invité à joindre un petit groupe de bloggers bien choisi pour assister à une présentation de la ligne de maquillage de Serge Lutens et ce qu’il appelle le “nécessaire de beauté”. Les essentiels de la beauté féminine. J’adore la boutique de Serge Lutens au Palais Royal et je suis une cliente et fan de plusieurs parfums. Son travail m’attire pour son originalité, et la recherche artistique avec une palette de parfums et sa capacité de m’envoyer en voyage ou invoquer une émotion simplement avec l’odorat. Alors j’étais bien évidement curieuse de voir ce qu’il arrive à faire avec le maquillage. Continue reading
