GEMs of Beauty:
Scent junkies, unite. There is nothing more intoxicating for those of us who’re consumed by the deliciousness of fragrances than discovering a new perfume that perfectly suits our mood and sensibilities. Of course my mood changes about every five minutes, which gives me an ideal excuse to try out a new scent wardrobe that is strong enough to stand up to sultry weather.
I’m all for signature scents, of course—especially if you find one that you love (and especially if you love it as much as I love La Perla)—but try not to get stuck in a scent rut and don’t think that you need to wear one of those classics just because everyone else says they’re fab. These glorious fragrances will transport you when the air in the subway or your office is wilted as a day-old bouquet.
