What's Your Signature Scent?

What's Your Signature Scent?

Ever since I was a little girl I've loved the smell of Anais Anais by Cacharel. My mother always had a bottle in her bathroom growing up — which totally might have something to do with my adoration for it — and for years this fragrance has remained my staple scent.

No matter where I am, Anais Anais feels right for any occasion. Sure, over the years, I've grown to love other classic and popular fragrances like Calvin Klein Obsession, Donna Karan Cashmere Mist, YSL Paris, Estee Lauder Beautiful and Ralph Lauren Lauren — and now more than ever as a beauty editor, I have access to so many different types of scents — but no matter what, at some point during the week I always gravitate back to my trusty floral Anais Anais.

What about you — do you have your own signature scent?

I love fresh scents so I prefer colognes than perfumes. Right now I am liking Calgon Hawaiian Ginger, so yummy!

I've been wearing Burberry Brit for a while now - I absolutely love it, but it's running out and so now I'm considering switching to something else. I really like London and Fresh's Pink Jasmine... so who knows?

Roberto Cavalli Just Cavalli Her. I get compliments on it daily that I smell so good and not that my fragrance smells good, which is key to me.

Premier Jour by Nina Ricci. But I made a sample of Stella by Stella McCartney... so we'll see it it changes!

One by Calvin Klein, classic, fresh and sexy. I hate strong perfumes. I also like J'Adore Dior for special occasions, Ralph by Ralph Lauren. Ane when I was younger i loved dream by Gap, I actually still love it.

My sister's scent is Anais too, she's used it since I remember. Mine is Angel by Thierry Mugler, though I don't use it everyday, now I'm using Fuel for Life by Diesel (it's great, really fresh) but Angel has always been my scent, every time I wear it or smell it it brings a lot of memories to my mind.

I have an eclectic mix of scents, most of which are not well known. I dislike wearing what everyone else wears, and I hate when people guess my fragrance. Although they usually cannot.

Anais Anais is special for me, it was my grandmother's scent (wore it every single day) and she died when I was 9. I still have her bottle and every time I smell it, it reminds me of her. :)

Jo Malone "Amber & Lavender," Philosophy's "Amazing Grace," and L"Occitane's discontinued "Vetyver."

I have the same nostalgic infatuation connected to my mother, being Chanel#5... & wear it occassionally, but it feels a tad odd at times, like it belongs to her or something ;) My signature scent has been Moschino by Moschino for years.

"White Linen", but haven't worn it in years. I fell in love with "Beyond Paradise" a couple of years ago, and my husband gave that to me as a Christmas present. I wear it on special occasions. I wear different scents usually, depending upon my mood. My grandmother wears "Beautiful", so every time I smell that, I think of her. Had Ralph Lauren "Romance" in the past, but since the divorce, I can't stand to smell it (reminds me of the ex too much...blah).
