I do believe this is my first post on perfume so I think a little scent background is in order. I tend to like perfumes with any of the following notes: citrus, spices, woody, white flowers and musk. I was in Sephora towards the end of last year when the associate in the perfume section recommended Narciso Rodriguez For her in the eau de parfum intense.
Narciso Rodriguez is a Cuban American designer whose designs are a regular on the red carpet and at the White House. (See here) He reportedly combined his love of women, and an Egyptian musk oil he got as a gift for the inspiration behind the For Her collection. (See here)
The notes and description of For her according to Sephora:
Sensual and addictive, this fragrance radiates with the warmth of a contemporary musk. It evokes a sense of mystery and intrigue, drying down to a tempting essence of musk that lingers underneath beautiful floral notes of jasmine, orange blossom, and ylang-ylang.
Musk, Ylang-Ylang, Jasmine and Orange Blossom.
Sensual. Floral. Musk.
I ended up taking home the smaller sized bottle of For Her you see in the pictures above that day from Sephora. I am definitely in the less is more camp when it comes to perfume so I was very surprised when I realized I finished that bottle. I went to repurchase it, but couldn’t find that size anywhere. I eventually found the bigger bottle (1.6oz/$99) at Bloomingdale’s. To me, For Her has a your skin but better kind of smell with medium sillage. When I’m wearing it I feel clean, grounded and relaxed. I’m too fickle to have just one signature scent but For Her has definitely earned its place as one of my faves.
What are you favorite perfume notes? Do you have a signature scent?
