Do you own a perfume that you consider to be a secret gem?
A generally under-appreciated scent that you cherish and love dearly?
Something you even consider a shameful secret?
Do you have a fragrant obsession you normally don’t talk about?
In my perfume closet is a small, black vial containing a lovely, retro, soft and subdued, spicy, white floral that I have been wearing a lot over the past summer. It is an elegant perfume, very easy to wear, not extremely inventive, not made with the best of ingredients, to be had for very little money. I bet that bottle feels a bit uncomfortable among its colleagues, the distinguished Chanels, vintage Guerlains and hard-to-find niche creations surrounding it, but it is also quite smug in the knowledge that I have been wearing it more lately than many of its more esteemed closet companions.
I’m not ashamed of wearing it, but I find myself not exactly advertising it either. My hidden treasure, my secret scent is Dita Von Teese Eau de Parfum.
Come on now, spill the beans, what is yours?
