Signature Scents Savvy
One of my favourite things to do is to check out the new fragrances on the market. One reason is that it brings back memories of when I was a little girl shopping with my mom at the Eatons Department store downtown Vancouver. Seeing all the beautiful bottles and testing the fragrances was so much fun. The second reason is that I like smelling good and I love the lingering scent of my fragrance on my clothing.
Finding your own unique signature fragrance is a trying task and purchasing one on impulse is not recommended, I have been guilty of buying one hundred dollar perfume only to be disappointed after a couple of uses because I really did not like the scent after it had stayed on my skin and clothing hours and days after. Testing it once on your skin, in the store, I found is not enough to make a purchase.
Not all fragrance companies provide stores with complimentary samples and there is no chance of getting take home samples of older fragrances that have been on the market for years. I have,however, discovered the best place to get take home samples of fragrances--Sephora. Staff there are super helpful, make suggestions based on fragrances you wear and most importantly provide you with a complimentary sample in a small vial of all the fragrances you are interested in. Thanks Sephora!
