A brand that was incepted in Grasse (France) and raised in New York, and all I knew about Le Labo was that it is a cult fragrance, well-liked by those in the know. Little did I realise that the brand focuses on a “freshly hand-made” concept, whereby your fragrance will be prepared right in front of you.

I was at Escentials (Paragon) to witness the making of my chosen fragrance.

I received two new fragrances recently – one which I am more familiar with while the other is a new brand and experience for me. Both are fruity floral fragrances but of course there were marked differences.

Just how many different fragrances does a girl need?

Just like the numerous dresses, accessories, shoes and bags that a girl can never own enough of.

If Penhaligon’s Peoneve were a dress, I think it would be a breezy turquoise skater dress with water colour brush prints and a v-cut back. To summarise, this scent is akin to a feminine dress with some flirty appeal suitable for the warm and fuzzy summer season.

I am not sure whether the idea of a “Bridal Fragrance” is popular over here in Singapore. But if you think through the bridal preparation process, you have spent so much time on your gown, hair, makeup, jewellery, shoes and bouquet (with specific colours and flowers in mind) for the grand occasion, you should not forget the important final piece to the puzzle – the scent.

The selection of the fragrance would depend on the theme of wedding, as well as the personality and preference of the bride. What is the impression that the bride would like to create? A romantic ambience? Elegance? Or a warm and cozy feeling?

Aura by Swarovski launched a new Collection Mariage, specifically “to transport every woman into an Aura of Love”.

Most of you probably know how much of a fan I am with profiling tools. Having gone through a fragrance profiling session last year, I got a wee bit excited when P&G Beauty did a simple profiling for me with the latest Floral by Gucci fragrances.

I know it sounds quite irrational but like many girls (yes, a sweeping statement here), I am very intrigued by profiling tools, mind-reading and stuff like that. Remember the Handbag Reading analysis that I introduced last year? I believe that we never know ourselves well enough and it’s always interesting to hear another point of view, be it scientific or not.

So, when the folks at Penhaligon’s – a perfume house with a very deep history that hauls from London – contacted me about a fragrance-profiling session, my curiosity was piqued. A scent is like a lady’s signature – it is supposed to leave an impression and gives someone a vague idea about yourself before you even start to articulate. Many of us shop for fragrances based on many factors, such as packaging, brand name, maybe the campaign ambassador (I would love to smell like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley!) and just by the whiff at the counter. The fragrance-profiling session, on the other hand, would be more focused – with a process that narrows down a scent based on your preference as well as your personality.

After all, there are more than 34 fragrances to choose from…

Have you been thinking of changing your scent? Are you looking for a fragrance that makes you “sophisticated, glamorous and radiant”? Or do you simply want to smell as sexy as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Burberry Body. I’m sure Burberry is gonna sell many bottles of perfume with this ad!
