I rather wish I had a signature scent, but I have never found one that I like. I actually enjoy the scent of the John Frieda Full Repair shampoo, and if that were a perfume, I’d buy it immediately.

Of all time: Chanel Chance
Of the moment: Illamasqua Freak and Chanel Coco Noir
For my husband (because he doesn’t like any of the above): Burberry Brit

I probably haven’t owned anything long enough to call it my signature, the three perfumes I’ve worn the most are LUSH The Bug, Ajmal Shadow and Britney Spears Circus Fantasy.

Someday Kalemat you will be mine!

Jennifer Lopez’s Still eau de parfum. I bought it online, unsniffed on a whim for a cheap price about 4 or 5 years ago and I love it.

Apples, tea, freesia, pepper, jasmine, sandalwood and a hint of rose and citrus. It smells fresh, clean, feminine and it really works well with my skin.

I may or may not have 3 backup bottles stashed away in my closet…;-)

100% Narciso Rodriguez ‘For Her’ Eau de Toilette. I just knew it would be mine forever after the first spray.

I go through phases, meaning I latch to one scent and wear it a lot until I find one I like even better. From oldest to newest, off the top of my head: Escada Island Kiss, Woods of Windsor True Rose, Aquolina Pink Sugar, Urban Rituelle Cotton Candy, Lancôme La Vie est Belle, Lush Rose Jam, Epically Epic Blue Girl. See a pattern here? 😉

I have had an issue with fragrance over the years due to sensitivity of skin and smell, but I have just got turned on to Tom Ford and OMG I’m in love! I want to try them all, shame price tag is soo high. I’m loving Neroli Portofino so I would say that would be my signature, and Noir (even though it is more for men I still love it.) I want to try Tobacco Vanille and others too. Wish the Private Blend miniature set was more affordable!

You could try samples from sites like Surrender to Chance or the Perfume Court – smaller, more affordable samples, and with perfume, a little can go a long way 🙂 Also great to try something!

Used to be Miss Dior, but now I rotate my scents so much that I don’t think I have a signature anymore. My recent go-to (same with last autumn) is Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire EDP.

I would love to find a modern, strong violet note perfume, but it’s hard! Something that smells like Guerlain’s Meteorites! I researched long and hard. Apparently at some point Guerlain did indeed have a Meteorites perfume that was supposed to smell just like them, but has been discontinued for some time now. Just my luck! Anyone with suggestions please help!

You can still find Meteorites occasionally online but it has gone up a bit in price the last few years.
It is one of my all-time favourites and is every bit as lovely as you might imagine. It is GORGEOUS.

Borsara’s Violetta de parma-straight up violet, YSL Paris(violets and roses) and surprisingly Grey Flannel a mens cologne that could be unisex has strong violet notes,very nice. A unique woody violet scent is Serge Lutens Bois de Violette. I own all of the above, like a little violet myself sometimes.

Maddie, try Balenciaga paris, violet heaven! you can buy at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus and now at Sephora too!!!
