Do you have a signature scent?
Fragrances can be found all around, from scented candles, to all our favourite bath and body products.
There are numerous reasons why we wear perfumes, but ultimately it boils down to the fact that they make us feel happy. The reason we feel happy depends on the individual, but can range from memories the scent invokes, a feeling of escape, and the ability to show individuality through fragrances.
I have a favourite which I would like to share with you. The perfume I constantly return to is one which was a gift over 40 years ago
Introduced in 1969, Azurée was inspired by the Mediterranean warmth near Mrs. Estée Lauder’s vacation home in Cap d’Antibes, off the coast of France.
Known as the sunlit fragrance, it has a vibrant tang of citrus and a earthy richness, the feeling is of sunlight and a rich warmth. There are notes of Basil, Jasmine and Citrus.
When asked to describe Azurée, Mrs. Lauder said, “Azurée is a golden girl, languorously basking in the warm Mediterranean sun. She is the eternal optimist spreading sunshine everywhere she goes.
In recent years Estee Lauder has repackaged this original fragrance into a more modern bottle. How I wish they would bring back the little extras that were a part of this fragrance. Soap, deodorant and talcum powder were originally also available in this range.
The ability of a fragrance can make us feel desired, connect us with memories, help us to escape and help us show our individuality.
The biggest reason we wear fragrances, is to show off our individuality. With so many fragrances to choose from a person can be original in what they decide to wear. They can change the way they smell to match their mood, the occasion, or anything they like.
And now my question is – DO YOU HAVE A SIGNATURE SCENT?
I would love to hear from you.
