#SBBC Day 22: My Perfume Story of Life

When I saw this topic coming up a lot of memories came flooding back like a movie in my head, so I thought I would share it with you. So let me take you through my journey of perfumes.................

Childhood:

The Body Shop White Musk is my mums signature scent and has been since I was baby. The Body Shop one was always her go to one which used to be in a tiny clear bottle with a white cap.

Early Teenage Life

Cacharel Lou Lou, this was actually available in our local pound shop and in there it was affordable with our pocket money, so imagine my shock when I googled it to find that it is not really pocket friendly now on some websites.

Mid Teens:

Benetton Hot was for her and Cold was for him. I loved the cold one and my mum loved the Hot perfume, so there was always a bottle floating around until we could no longer get it. Not sure it is something I would like now.


Late Teens:

NOA is what I consider to be my first grown up perfume which my mum and dad got me for my 17th birthday and for many birthdays and Christmases after. I thought the bottle was so pretty and sophisticated that it had pride of place on my bed side cabinet.

Early 20's:

Paco Rabanne Ultraviolet, this reminds me of when I first met my husband as I had just tested it at the local perfume counter before I had encountered him. He then bought it for my birthday 8 months later! This perfume brings me right up to our engagement with so many fun memories.

Wedding Perfume:

I wear ChloƩ on special occasions now, and it is my "Special Perfume". This lasted the entire wedding day and the minute I put it on I get brought straight back to the magic of our wedding day.

Motherhood:

Daisy by Marc Jacobs is all about motherhood to me, so I hope Lillibug remembers it like I remember my mums White Musk. I absolutely love the bottle with the daisy's on the cap. It is my everyday go to perfume and it has become my signature scent.

What is your signature scent? Let me know in the comments section.
