A fragrance is more than just a scent and smell. To me, a fragrance (perfume/cologne) goes much more in depth than that, where it is a statement of ones identity and projects back on your personality and life style. It creates memories.
It could be that mid 30s French woman who just got off work from a stressful day and sits in a bar sipping on a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, whilst her seductive Chanel Coco Mademoiselle scent is distinctively present amongst the crowd. Or it can be that sweet 16 teenage girl who is on her first date, longing to be loved, and sprays on a hint of Gwen Stefani’s sweet and playful scented perfume, Harajuku lovers Music. I like to believe that the majority of women out there are constantly looking for that unique scent that signifies them.
Recently i have discovered a new scent that i have fallen completely head over heels in, and that does not happen often (i still do love my Chloe very dearly). This new found love of mine is Hermes Au Jardin Sur Le Toit. It is not too strong of a scent where it has this really fresh and summery smell to it, without being too overbearing. Is is definitely a great choice for a summer perfume.
I was lucky enough to have a friend who bought this perfume yesterday at the Hong Kong airport while on her way coming into town, and she got a free smaller bottle along with her purchase! Of course, being the sweet darling that she is, she gave it to me.
The small bottle size is also perfect to just pop into my bag, where i can spray a quick hint of summer paradise whenever i need to freshen up. It is really the small things that counts after all, right?
