Growing up, I was surrounded by different designer perfumes. My mom never lacked them. She would buy them or get them as gifts, so she always had an amazing scent! However, when I started using perfumes, I was never consistent or big on certain kinds of perfume. I would only use it whenever I remembered, which was not very often. Even when I got my first ever designer perfume, “Pink Friday by Nicki Minaj”, I left it unused for so long that it dried up on my holiday trip to the US. I guess, subconsciously, I didn’t think I always had to use perfume, especially because; I have excellent body hygiene.
More recently, however, I’ve begun to understand that using perfume is much more than just for body hygiene. It’s about creating an image with a scent that can be associated with it. In such a way, when you walk into a room, people already know it’s you before seeing your face.
I recently started using “Stronger With You Absolutely” by Emporio Armani. Over the weekend, I attended an event where I met someone new. It was a two-day event. On the second day of the event, as I walked in and was about to walk by this person I had met who had his back to me, he stretched out his hand to stop me. When I asked him how he knew I was the one, he said he could smell my scent. And then it hit me; the importance of having an amazing scent.
Just like everything else, there are levels to perfumes, and I’ve done the work of finding the top 10 crowd-pleasing perfumes for classy women. In no particular order they are:
Parfums de marly: Safanad
Parfums de marly: Delina Exclusif
Nishane: Hundred Silent Ways
NYC: Bond No. 9 Tribeca
Maison Francis Kurkdijian: Baccarat Rouge 540
Hermès: Twilly d’ Hermès
Narciso Rodriguez: Narciso Poudree
Jessica Simpson: Fancy
Tiffany & Co: Tiffany Intense
Armani: Si Fiori
