Indulge in a New Perfume for National Fragrance Day!

national fragrance day 2015

March 21st is National Fragrance Day aka a total excuse to indulge in a decadent new fragrance for yourself! I was going to say for yourself or someone else but if you’re as greedy as I am it’s all about mine mine mine!

So what is this National Fragrance Day anyway? It’s a day to celebrate all good smelling things. That’s not limited to perfume by the very way! Scented candles, soaps, bath and body products, and yes, of course, your favorite fragrances.

Like any woman I love to smell pretty! Just like makeup, fragrance has the ability to evoke confidence in a person. It’s also mood enhancing! It can make you feel sexy, happy, even sad. It not only evokes certain feelings and can call fourth a certain memory but sometimes we associate certain smells with home or a particular person. Never say fragrance isn’t a powerful thing because it truly is. I think fragrance can prove an emotional journey. We also kind of use fragrance to entice and draw attention to ourselves. It’s nice to hear a random compliment about how pretty I smell. Who doesn’t love that? It makes a person feel attractive!

I personally gravitate towards two different kinds of fragrances. I like very unique and obscure fragrances like Lush Ginger, Dianne Brill’s Eau de Parfum, and I also happen to be a great lover of many of the Agent Provocateur fragrances and Annick Goutal’s perfumes. One of my more unique tries of the moment was Memoire Liquide Fine Fragrance Vacanes which is a fine orange blossom. Very rich yet subtle and feminine with a touch of a flirty feel. I’m also a fan of gourmand fragrances particularly unusual ones. For example I recently purchased a gorgeous latte fragrance. I honestly and truly smell like a super rich version of Starbucks when I wear it and for some odd reason men seem to adore it and question what it is. I don’t drink coffee but I absolutely adore the smell of it and this captures the essence beautifully with notes of creamy coffee. On any given day you’ll find that I smell like marshmallows, marzipan, lollipops, cake, etc…obviously my sense of smell seems to run towards food and could be prove to be a bit juvenile but most of my perfumes are conversation starters for sure as I get a lot of “What is that you’re wearing!? You smell delicious!” I happen to be the biggest Etsy h0r so I’m always seeking out foody, candy fragrances on the site. As you know I’m a fond lover of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and their seasonal collections which happen to almost always include foody or fruity fragrances particularly around Halloween and Christmas. Today I’m not wearing anything as I’m meeting someone later that isn’t a great lover of fragrances. I have to say I always shake my head in wonder when someone says they dislike fragrance. Like my Aunt for example can’t wear anything with fragrance due to sensitivities, I feel so badly when I hear that because I couldn’t imagine my world without a little fragrance in it. But to not like fragrance by choice, just because, oh no! But different strokes for different folks.

So tomorrow’s National Fragrance Day and here are a few fragrance suggestions you might wish to try.

And please, do feel free to tell me about your favorite fragrances and what you love about them or love about fragrance in general!
