Fragrance Collection

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become much more into perfumes rather than just spraying on some body mist after I get out of the shower. However, my preferences in smell have stayed the same – clean and crisp, with subtle hints of floral for daytime and a deeper, musk smell for nighttime.

Although I enjoy adding to my perfume collection, I prefer to keep it relatively small so I can rotate through each on a regular basis and not overwhelm my nose with too many scents. Some of these also are reserved solely for special occasions – such as my So This is Love perfume that I wore on my wedding day – while my signature go-to scent always will be Clinique’s Happy Heart.

What perfumes have you been loving lately? Do you have a signature scent?
  • Becky M

    The Sephora Cinderella one sounds like it smells amazing!!

  • I've been wanting to try Modern Muse!

  • Modern Muse is on my wish list– it smells SO good! I think it was Clinique Happy To Be that was one of my first perfumes ever– I'm pretty sure they don't make it anymore, but I will always love their fragrances!

  • Mia- MakeMeUpMia

    I LOVE Very Hollywood too! I got Dior Blooming Boquet for my birthday and I'm so in love, it smells so good.

  • I get bored and change so frequently, but I tend to gravitate towards the light fresh scents. One of my summer go to's is Victoria's Secret Beach Angel. My favorite thing about the perfumes are the pretty bottles!

  • Pamela

    I ended up getting the Jennifer Aniston one! Great for summer! I also have Miss Dior, Armani Code and Chanel Chance! I've been wanting to try out the Michael Kors scents though!

    Such great choices! We love Flower Bomb, seduction by Guess, and anything florally or that has vanilla!

    You know I love a good perfume! My favorites right now are Sunshine Grace by Philosophy(love this one!), Eternity Summer by Calvin Klein, Light Blue by Dolce & Gabana, and Flowerific by the Flirt! line at Kohls. I'm not sure you can find the Eternity Summer anymore, but it's worth trying! I like the Jennifer Aniston one, too – very beachy! Bobbi Brown makes a great Beach scent, too! Can you tell I'm crazy for perfume?!!!!!!!!!

  • Nichole

    I used to use Clinique's Happy and it smelled so so good!

  • When I bought my wedding dress they gifted me with a bottle of Vera Wang lovestruck and I fell in love with it, it's still a standing favorite! I also love see by chloe, and flight of fancy by anna sui. I'm always looking for new favorites!

  • I can't do perfume thanks to my allergies 🙁 Makes me so sad. For any sort of scent, I just stick to B&BW lotions — most of those don't seem to bother me!

  • Oh rats – you must have some crazy allergies, lady! But, you definitely can't go wrong with B&BW lotions – lots of variety!

  • Wow, what a nice perk on top of picking out your wedding dress! I've heard that's a great perfume.

  • I'm pretty sure that's the first perfume I ever owned! Then I graduated up to their Happy Heart – it's been my signature scent ever since.

  • Yes, I know you're crazy for perfume! It's a good thing you own Light Blue by D&G because I always steal a couple sprays when I'm home.

  • I haven't tried the ones you mentioned, but I'll have to sample them soon!

  • Maybe you can add to your collection soon and be happy! 🙂 I'm a huge fan of Light Blue by D&G, so I'm sure I'd love Blue, too!

  • The Jennifer Aniston perfume is my go-to for summer – I just love it. I think you'd really like the Michael Kors' perfumes!

  • You can try mine next time you visit!

  • Right? It's all about the packaging – I think that's half the reason why I love Modern Muse. VS has great scents – I'll have to test that one!

  • Since it's Dior, I bet it smells ah-mazing. I'll have to get a tester of it next time I'm at a department store. Very Hollywood is my go-to night-out perfume – it's the perfect scent!

  • Clinique perfumes are so old school for most, but Happy Heart always will be signature scent – I've worn it ever since I was younger, so it just always makes me feel good when I wear it. You would love Modern Muse!

  • It was the perfect scent for my wedding day. Plus, I had to incorporate a little Disney princess somewhere into my big day. 🙂

  • Debra Stachelski

    Good thing I don't mind – ha!ha!

  • Biana Perez

    I dont have any of these and that makes me sad!! My signature is Blue by Dolce & Gabbana – it always reminds me of summertime and Greece!! I love Escada's line as well – currently have Ibiza Hippy – you can always find them at TJ Maxx!
