Have you ever noticed how a scent can instantly transport you to a time or a place, evoke a memory: perhaps something long forgotten from your childhood… I know that it’s certainly true for me and the smell of gingerbread will always take me back to Christmas back home in Riga baking cookies with my grandmother, and I will always associate lavender with my mother. It was one of her favorite scents and it makes me think of her whenever I come across it. Even more than that, I find that the right scent can transform and uplift my mood, and I think it is for all those reasons scent and especially fragrance play such an important role for me.
Though I am fairly loyal to my fragrances, every once in a while I come across something really special to add to my collection and my latest discovery is Happy Hour by Maison Christian Dior Perfumes. Though I think I’ve always loved fresh, slightly fruity, happy scents, this one in particular is absolutely divine. Carefree and sweet, there is something particularly light and fresh about the combination of Jasmine and Ylang Ylang. I don’t usually change my fragrance from day to night because to me, your scent is more of a signature and not an accessory, although for night, I often go a bit heavier and apply it right before I get out of the shower and just before I get dressed. Soft and famine, I love that Happy Hour wears well during the day and and night. It doesn’t overpower yet leaves a beautiful floral trail that follows you around everywhere you go…
What about you guys, what do you look for in your fragrance?
