Thoughts on perfumes

Perfume is like an accessory. Although scents that perfume gives off are not seen when worn, they certainly do make an impression on others.

A fragrance to me is something that stimulates the senses through scents and smells and ultimately stirs a certain feeling within us. It may transport you to a different place or time; It may make you recall memories or create new ones.

I love the scents of rose, jasmine, neroli and amber. They seem to be the kinds of scents that make me feel elegant.

Her list of favourite fragrances:

Rose Amber by The 7 Virtues 

Jasmine Neroli by The 7 Virtues

Eau Rose by Diptyque 

Black Saffron by Byredo 

English Pear and Freesia by Jo Malone
