I know, I know, impossible question again, but a little torture is fun, isn’t it?
What is the one perfume you never want to be without?
What is your absolute Number One?
What perfume leaves all your other loves in the dust?
My absolute Number one?
Okay, let’s narrow it down a bit.
There are perfumes I adore, but never wear for varying reasons. Onda is mindblowing, but it comes in a tiny extrait bottle and is not everyone’s favorite, so I wear it very rarely and only for myself. Same with the Afteliers, especially Tango and Cepes&Tuberose, I admire them, but they are so emotionally charged, I can’t just make them my SotD and be done with it, they are perfumes for special occasions.
My all time favorites that I am actually wearing regularly, are, in no particular order of importance Puredistance I, Chanel 31 Rue Cambon, Shalimar extrait, Malle Le Parfum de Therese, Dior New Look 1947, Mona di Orio Musc, Cuir de Lancome, Armani Privé Ambre Orient, Parfumerie Générale Indochine, Guerlain Cuir Beluga and Chanel N°5 and Eau Premiere. And I’ll add the wonderful Amouage Beloved, and even if it has only very recently joined the ranks, I can tell that it is a keeper.
So is my Number One perfume among those?
I realize that this is a snap decision, and it will be different in a few hours probably, but that is why I have a collection, not a signature scent. So I will choose my number one based on what I have been craving most often lately and what I wouldn’t want to give up right now.
Ta da – I present Cuir de Lancome!
Thank you, Tara. You gave me a a perfume to love, admire and wear.
So, I can’t wait, dear readers! What is your Number One?
