You Smell

Last night I went out for a delightful dinner of tapas with my girlfriends at Imp Cafe (oh the food was delish and they do the best breakfasts too!) and a funny thing happened! Our lovely waiter came to take our order and he's like"Which one of you lovely ladies are wearing Lolita Lempicka perfume?" I was like me!!!

Now, this man was a really manly man (a tall, dark, chest-hair type) and us girls were really impressed he not only knew the name of my perfume but without a pause went on to list off 5 other scents he considered 'sexy and irresistible" (they included Gucci Rush, Versace- the one in the woman torso bottle and dolce&gabbana Light Blue and a few more neither of us girls could remember!) I was not only chuffed (because I agree Lolita Lempicka is one of my favourite perfumes) but have to say his girlfriend is one lucky lady as her man has a fantastic taste in smells!

Our waiters' observation lead into a deep discussion about whether your scent makes you more attractive and had any of us found 'our' scent. I have so many perfumes and can't really say I have found the one and only scent that defines me as a woman. But out of my collection I have a top 3 I really enjoy wearing!
  1. Lolita Lempicka (for obvious reasons!!!!)
  2. Sun Moon Star by Karl Lagerfeld (long lasting and powerful-I couldn't find the ad campaign for this, well it was launched in 1994!)
  3. Daisy by Marc Jacobs (such a nice everyday perfume, love the bottle + their ad campaign!

One of my girlfriends only wears Issey Miyake- its so her, and when I smell Elizabeth Arden Red Door it instantly reminds me of my mum and when I get a whiff of Tommy Girl is reminds me of being a teen. I think the concept of having a distinct fragrance is really beautiful and I can see why so many celebrities create their own! I just wonder if they actually wear it.... Do you have a favourite fragrance?

P.S I regret not asking our waiter what man perfume he wore...maybe I'll go back for breakfast tomorrow....haha


  1. I love how perfumes remind me of the past... I always am changing my perfumes, but sometimes I will put on something from ages ago and it's crazy how all the memories come flooding back.


  2. I love the significance of perfumes and how much they can influence..well...nothing and everything.
    And I must try Daisy, I keep hearing raves about it!

    Have a lovely weekend :)

  3. Whose Issey Miyake? I'm all over Madame at the moment... Picking meself up a bottle duty free next week!!! Yipppeee!!! x

  4. I love Lolita Lempicka, it is the only perfume I wear. It was quite a journey how I found it and felt sexy for the 1st time. I feel like as a perfume it really fits my personality. You can read about how I feel about it on my blog, Brands I Use.
