Shalimar...

I made a new illustration today... Shalimar by Guerlain. It turned out really gorgeous, if you ask me... and a little different from my other illustrations some how. I guess it's the darker more potent colors. I think it's a start of something great. What do you think? Any one have Shalimar as their signature scent here?




When I was a teen my father helped me look for my very own signature scent. I loved the idea of having my very own scent, that smelled perfect on my skin, oh so very glamorous. We tried Shalimar (though the light version as I was so young) because it's my Aunt's signature scent, and we're very much alike... but it smelled just awful on me. After some searching I found my scent... Oui by Lancome. I wore it happily for a few years, unfortunately it is now off the market (or at least I thought so). I'm not even sure I remember how it smelled. Since then I haven't really found anything to replace it. I very rarely use perfume these days, but if I do, I think Stella's In Two Peony is just perfect.

I think I'll go spray some on right now...

This is gorgeous, the darker colours work really well : )

I used to love Oui as well, didn't realise it wasn't made anymore. My fave now is Issey Miyake!

Have you got only one scent ? I mean I'm used to have 2 flagrances, one for winter and another one for summer !

Oh and funny story about my own scent (winter' scent ;) : when I was 15 my mum stopped wearing her flagrance (Anaïs/Anaïs by Cacharel) she had for something like 20 years. I missed so much the scent on her skin that I decided wear it myself ! And guess what ? Since this time, my mum can't stant it any more ;)

Tina, it's funny how our noses change too! And yes I only just use one scent... and only spray it on like once a month, if that. I miss my Moms perfume too (Lancome Poeme) Wish I could see her more often...
