My five cents on my five scents

Just back from town and a spot of Christmas gift shopping. Almost done with my list - what a feeling! (As Irene Cara would say.)


I'm greatly looking forward to getting this present on the evening of 24 December, the day the Danes celebrate Christmas. Cos I already know what's in it! Chose it myself, today, for myself... :) I think it's going to be a gift to me from DD7 and DS9. Or maybe DH.

Anyway...it contains a little scented candle, body wash and shampoo from my favourite bath and body series 'La Source' by Crabtree & Evelyn. Which got me thinking about my all-time favourite scents:

  • '24 Faubourg' by Hermès - this is the only perfume I have ever worn where people have literally said, "You smell lovely!", I've been wearing it for over 10 years
  • 'Coco' by Chanel - when I wear this (only at night, too heavy on me during the day) I feel like a real grown-up and really 'dressy' ;)
  • 'La Source' by Crabtree & Evelyn - this is what's in the package above, makes me feel good in the shower in the morning, smells like the sea and is good for the skin
  • 'Eau Dynamisante (Invigorating Fragrance)" by Clarins - this is an eau de cologne I use in the spring and summer, have been using it for about 15 years, always makes me feel really fresh (and I refuse to listen to my old French colleague, Gaby, who thinks it smells like cat wee)
  • "Delirium" by the clothes company, Mango - nice and light (did I also mention cheap?!), everyday fragrance, comes in a really cute pink bottle with a big pink and red flower that DD7 would just love to get her dainy little hands on...

Happy fragrant Friday! :)
