It was Coco Chanel who said ‘ A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future’. And I can see where she’s coming from.
With so many fragrances to choose from, Bondi Beauty Founder Renae Leith-Manos talks about finding the right one for you.
I am a big believer in having a signature scent – a fragrance you wear almost all of the time, that becomes a part of your daily routine and a part of who you are. Then I like a few additional fragrances for night time or special occasions.
You need to try fragrances on your skin to see which ones suit you best.
I love Michael Kors by Michael Kors (RRP $90.00) – the tuberose is elegant, sexy and enchanting as is the freesia, cashmere wood and vetiver. It is gorgeous in summer, and lingers.
Chance by Chanel (RRP $124.90) was created in 2003, and is a great summer fragrance. The patchouli combined with citrus and earthy, woody tones is strong but subtle enough not to be too overbearing, and turns heads.
French fragrance company Diptyque has a stunning new fragrance 34 Boulevarde St Germaine – Diptyque Paris 5e (RRP$100.00), named after the location of their shop in the heart of Paris.
For a special night out, Tom Ford, Velvet Orchid (RRP $162.00) is strong, so don’t over do it. bergamot and mandarin leap out in a fragrance that’s as daring as it is elegant. I feel this is too strong for day time.
