Perfume may not be for everyone, but those of us who love it really love it. Many of my childhood memories are steeped in scent, so much that whenever I catch a whiff of Yves Saint Laurent Opium, I instantly think of my mom and all the warmth and comfort she brings. You see YSL Opium is my moms signature scent. She has been wearing it for as long as I can remember that it has become synonymous with her.
All of this got me thinking…do I have a signature scent? And the answer to this question is yes. It’s taken me a while to find it, but I instantly knew it was the one, it was me, the moment I smelled it. So what is my signature scent you ask… it’s Channel’s Coco Mademoiselle. This perfume is warm, elegant and feminine with notes of orange, morning rose, Italian jasmine, bourbon vanilla and white musk. It carries such a sense of luxury and confidence while still maintaining a youthful presence. To some the scent might be a little heavy, but for me it’s just right. Coco Mademoiselle is the perfect combination of oriental spice and floral musk. Simply put, it’s sexy, sophistication in a bottle.
Now I must give credit to my former roommate, Anna, for introducing me to Channel’s Coco Mademoiselle as she was wearing it the first time I met her. The scent was so romantic, warm and intoxicating that I could not stop smelling her and immediately had to ask what she was wearing.
Since then, I have been wearing Coco Mademoiselle everyday for 3 years and am proud to say that it’s my signature scent. It is utterly and recognizably me!
