How often do you let the pleasant aroma lead you to discover places on your journey?
I’m obsessed with fragrance, from my collection of over 100 bottles of perfumes, shelves of heavenly scented candles, to chocolate fragrant body mousse, I let my nose take me on adventures. Surrounding myself with all things fragrant is more than just making sure I smell heavenly at all times, it’s the imaginative journey that matters – I tend to connect a particular scent with a place and a travel memory, somewhere I’ve either travelled to or on my bucket list.
The sweet aroma of osmanthus is still lingering in my beauty corner with the scented candles I bought from Arashiyama in Kyoto. The lavender doll in my closet reminds me of the blossoming time travelling through endless lavender fields in Provence. And guess what, whenever I walk pass Ladurée it brings back the fondest memories of tasting a new flavour of macaron a day in Paris!
I felt a little bit spoilt for my birthday month when this aromatic delivery dropped in my mailbox: it’s a darling Michael Kors Eau de Parfum Glamorous 3 Piece Set from my favourite store David Jones Online! One spray and my room was filled with a very warm and sensual scent. A bit of freesia, tamarind, osmanthus, peony and a tiny sprinkle of musk gives this perfume a creamy, floral note that explodes into exotic spices when it’s warmed in the air. I was taken to the streets of Turkey through the scent, or was it the spice market in Morocco?
And I thought to let you my fellow lovelies visualise the Michael Kors scent, here I present my styled outfit playing with its earthy, creamy notes.
A vintage red velvet crop top with embroidery, paired with a beige suede maxi, chunky boho silver necklace and cream leather Swedish Hassbeen clog heels – hope you love this look! Just thank me later for taking you to the exotic lands of North Africa. 🙂
