Beauty, Product review

My favourite perfume of the month

Oh, I am a huge sucker when it comes to perfumes… it is yet another passion of mine. I have a small collection of both mainstream designer and niche perfumes and I switch between them depending on what I fancy in the morning. I do not “shower” myself in them like some people seem to do, I prefer to apply it to my pulse points and behind my ears, and this, I feel, makes me enjoy the fragrance throughout the day without making people around me cringe because of the powerful sillage emanating from me. I hope I don’t anyway…

During this month – I can’t believe January is nearly gone! – I have been reaching out to my Tom Ford Jasmin Rouge vial almost every day. This perfume does have well pronounced jasmine notes with maybe a little bit of spiciness, and it lasts on my skin for a very long time. I love waking up in the morning and being able to smell the remnants of this gorgeous aroma on my skin and on my pillow… I adore jasmine scent, it is so very feminine, slightly mysterious, and reminds me of my childhood. My nan had a jasmine plant growing outside of the front door and I still remember the scent of jasmine on a warm summer’s night, those good, happy, untroubled times…

The gorgeous Jasmin Rouge – I love the simplicity of this bottle’s design

I love the little box the perfume comes with, I always keep my perfumes in their boxes to hide them from the light

I wonder what mood I will be in next month, I sure am looking forward to receiving the samples I have ordered recently from an artisan perfumer based in East London – I will share my thoughts on these here on my blog sometime soon.

I would love to hear what your favourite perfume this month is! Any suggestions of other good jasmine-scented perfumes worth trying out are very welcome too and I am always on a lookout!
