My New Favorite Perfume


Perfume is, as Coco Chanel so famously said, the invisible accessory. So when we lived in Switzerland, I especially loved wearing perfume because of the dreaded kisses. I didn't have to wear too much and yet everyone I greeted would smell it. I really felt it added something to my outfit and made an impression. I've always liked perfume, but I wasn't disciplined about it or anything. In Europe, it became a total necessity because I wasn't about to risk getting that close to that many people smelling bad!

On my first birthday in Switzerland, J gave me a bottle of this fabulous Prada perfume for my birthday. I loved it so much, I used every last drop and I even bought it again! I have a bottle of it on my vanity right now. There is nothing else like its woodsy, incense-y, bright and vibrant smell. But, as much as I adore it, sometimes I want something a little more floral and feminine. Something pink!

Enter Miss Dior.

Miss Dior Eau de Parfum is far from new, but it's new to me and I can't believe it took me so long to find it. I love the sweetness, the rosy fullness, and after it's been on for a few hours, it is delicate and powdery and warm. I don't think I could find a better winter scent. I've been wearing it almost daily for a few weeks and J has asked and remarked a few times, "Is that your new Dior perfume? I like it." Win, win! This one is a keeper.

These days, I've become a total perfume junkie. I have 7 different bottles going right now and three on my wish list. That seems a bit excessive. ;) What are your favorite perfumes? Do you switch it up with the different seasons? How many do you keep in rotation at a time?

  1. Yes! I have been wearing it for years and love it. But I just bought Derek Lam Silent Street perfume stick and it’s quickly becoming my new favorite!

    1. Oooh, I've seen the Derek Lam perfume sticks and they're so chic looking. I'll have to check out Silent Street. Thanks for the tip. :)

  2. I love Calvin Klein's Eternity. A reason to shop Duty Free! I also picked up a travel perfume bottle (you can fill it with your own scent) ages ago and love being able to safely travel with perfume without chancing the whole bottle exploding in my luggage.

    1. I was obsessed with CK One (very different, I know!) in middle school. I love the simple ad with the frosty bottle and white background. And duty free is the BEST. It's where we always get my husband's Hermes cologne. Yes to the small travel bottles, too. It's also a great way to share perfume with friends. ;)

  3. I was obsessed with perfume in middle school all the way up until I got pregnant, when I hadn't even made a dent in my bottle of flowerbomb! Then I just stopped. I also find it a bit distracting to wear strong fragrances working with small children, so if and when I remember to wear perfume, it's only for special occasions. I still only have the flowerbomb (which is lasting forever), but over the years I have worn everything from Acqua di Gio to Miss Dior to Givenchy's Hot Couture!
