Beauty | Finding A Signature Scent.

What is a signature scent?.. A scent that preserves memories. A scent that transports you to an amazing destination. A scent that fills you with love and happiness. And let me tell you, when you've found it, you'll know!
I find perfume descriptions quite difficult to go by, I mean I love fruit based top notes as much as the next person, but you never really know if a scents for you until you give it a good whiff! Saying that, I've always found perfume buying rather stressful; There's so many on the market, that it's seems like a complete minefield. After the initial stress comes excitement, when trying one perfume quickly whirlwinds into trying fifty. And lord knows once you're five perfumes in, they all start smelling the same. Ten perfumes in, that's when the headaches start! It can be a stressful time for the best of people!

Luckily I've found the one for me!
Although finding a signature scent isn't the most important thing in the world, it's definitely something that makes me feel good about myself. On a day to day basis, I present myself in a way that makes me feel as comfortable as I can in my own skin, wearing my hair a certain way, applying makeup how I like it to look & wearing my signature Cacharel Amor Amor scent.

I first discovered Cacharel Amor Amor around a decade ago, possibly even before that! You know how it is as a young teen, when you're just getting into cosmetics, the main buying factor isn't particularly the brand, or what the product does, it's the price. And at the time that's exactly what Cacharel had to offer me.
Amor Amor is their frutiest, and what I would describe as youngest smelling perfume under the Cacharel brand. It has top notes of blackcurrant, orange and grapefruit which when applied smell absolutely incredible. The lasting base notes are of vanilla, tonka bean and musk, which leaves a much fresher, defined scent and one I absolutely adore!

For me Amor Amor has got to be my singature scent because, even though I've dabbled in other brands, it's always this red bottled beauty which I turn back to time and time again. It's a scent that's stuck with me as I've progressed into adulthood and discovered who I am - It's a perfume that defines me! I've just dipped into bottle number 2,345,234 (okay, slight exaggeration) and I know as soon as this one's ran out, I'll be straight to the shops to buy another!

I adore Amor Amor!
