Signature Scent

I was never a huge perfume person...that probably had something to do with the fact that my mom gets massive headaches when she is around someone that has used too much perfume or cologne. Not kidding we have to RUN through the perfume section at Macy's because she just cannot handle it. To still smell nice without giving my mom a huge headache I stayed away from perfumes and stuck with body sprays. Mostly Enchanted Apple from Victoria Secret not too strong but still yummy to smell!

Then I started alternating between these two Sweet Pea and Dream from Gap. Dream bordered a little more on the perfumey side but it smelled so great and is still one of my favorite scents to date.

All of this was up until I heard of Connexion by Lancome, my aunt works for Lancome so I asked her to keep an eye out for when it came in. I'll admit it was the purple bottle that drew me to it but once she got it for me I gave up everything else for this perfume, it was a mix of magnolia, blackberry, and vanilla (one of my favorite smells). Unfortunately it was only really being sold abroad and we were lucky she even got the few bottles that she could. I've seen a few times at the perfume stores but I am always wary with those places and prefer to get it direct from the company.
For our first Valentines Jay bought be Romance by Ralph Lauren, this is a pretty popular scent from what I have heard. This is a mix of fresh rose, ginger, marigold, violet, oakmoss and musk and was a little stronger then what I am used to but it definitely grew on me.

On our second Valentines he bought me Versace Bright Crystal which I absolutely LOVED. It has more of a flowery scent to it and is made up of magnolia, iced accord, yuzu, musk, pomegranate, acajou, peony, plant amber, lotus flowers. Unfortunately the pump on it broke and I don't know how to get the rest of the perfume out!Currently I am using Realities which was a wedding gift from the hubby and I thing besides Connexion this is my favorite to date. It has a really light smell to it not overpowering at all but just enough to make your presence known. Thanks to the lady at the perfume counter for suggesting this one :) It is a blend of Mirror Orchid, Vanilla, Magic Lantern Orchid, Musk, White Ginger, Bergamot, Pink Peonies, Persian Violet, Sandalwood, Gardenia. Maybe for me the trick is having that bit of Vanilla!
I also want to get Lacoste Touch of Pink which is a mix of Coriander Leaf, Touch of Vanilla, Blood Orange, Cardamom seed, Cardamom, Musks, Jasmine, Carrot seed, Violet Leaf, and Sandalwood. See what I mean about the Vanilla? This scent is a little more casual then the others but still yummy!

What are your favorite scents? Or do you have a signature one that you always use?
