Wednesday PowWow : You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Fragrance

Being a mom of three, I'm around funny smells all the time.  Yeh, you get the drift.

I currently smell like one of these three scents:

Alien by Theirry Mugler, $79

So I think the older I've gotten, the more sensitive I have become to wanting to be around things (and people) that smell GOOD!  From fragrance plug-ins in every hall of my house, to candles everywhere, to multiples soaps and bath gels for our showers, pleasant smells are a must.  So myself being included as one of those pleasant smells goes without saying.

If I had to describe the common denominator of these scents, it would be they are dark, mysterious, warm, and sultry.  No girly lightweight florals here.  And it's amazing how the dark and purple packaging of these bottles reflect the same type of feel!  The Desire and Alien are both eau de perfumes so you need very little to get a big scent, but the Sonia Kashuk is a body oil and I go crazy with it!  With my dry skin being an issue in these cold months, spraying this oil on right after the shower is like heaven to my skin and I literally bathe in this stuff.  I don't think you can overdo it!

Here are the basic notes in my three rotating scents:

1. Desire - mandarin, lily of the valley, vanilla infused caramel, and sandalwood

2. Purple Seductia - pomegranate, rose, and patchouli 

3.  Alien - vanilla, amber, and jasmine

My taste in perfumes changes like my taste in lip glosses, so I'm sure once the cold season is over I'll be onto something lighter and more flowery!  But for now, these three scents are keeping me in the winter spirit and smell great next to my leather jackets and wool sweaters!

So for today's powwow - I want to know what perfume or scent are you never fully dressed without this winter?
