I have always been a little bit hesitant to post this but given that I truly get so many compliments on my choices of scent, I thought it was about time to share my secret. I mostly wear aftershave!
I come out in itchy lumps with a lot of ladies perfume and my nose itches at anything floral and heady. It is seemingly a hereditary thing as Mother Tramp is the same! I can’t actually think of anything worse than being caught by the overzealous sample ladies in my nearest beauty hall. Bleugh, it gives me a migraine!
I love a clean fresh sharp scent. A lot of female fragrances are now heading this way so no one has ever said “you smell like a man”!
My absolute favourite, special occasion fragrance is Chanel Egoiste Platinum.
My daily fragrance that I carry round in my bag is HE by Usher for mid day top ups (who knew he made such nice perfume!). I don’t find it clashes with anything else I start the day with – I am always revitalised and perked up by this refreshing summery scent.
I rotate the rest of the fragrances regularly as the mood takes me.
Paco Rabanne Black XS, Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male, Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Summer 2012, Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Summer 2013, Chanel Egoiste and Burberry Touch.
In my collection, I do have 3 ladies fragrances….
Amor Amor Tentation was a spur of the moment purchase in a perfume shop in Majorca on our first abroad holiday together. It was an air conditioned shop, we were hot… purchases went down. Happy memories. Ange Ou Demon by Givenchy is a very evocative perfume for me and reminds me old friends and my Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir is a perfect winter perfume as it is warming and cosy and was a very lovely gift from Mr Tramp. I find it a little over powering in the summer heat.
