I’m sure, like me, you’ve flirted with many fragrances over the years. Maybe you change your perfume according to the time of day or the season. Perhaps, like me and Charlotte, you have several spritzes on rotation at any one time, choosing your fragrance to suit your mood. But when it comes down to it, we’ve all got a favourite. These are ours. For now.

{Charlotte} Juliette Has A Gun (Lady Vengeance)

This was my wedding perfume. I actually didn’t know there was such a thing as the requirement to have a specific W-day fragrance until an engaged friend asked me, very seriously, what mine was (apparently I needed to make sure it was photographed on the big day you see).

I embarked on a major hunt at the time, lots of lovely smells but none that felt as though they could be “The One” (I joke it was much like dating – I even bought a couple of different varieties only to decide a few sprays later that actually, I just didn’t love them).

I spotted the Juliette Has Got A Gun range in Selfridges, I thought the branding and bottle design were unique, quirky and ever-so-slightly sexy. Lady Vengeance was my favourite – a heady mix of Bulgarian rose, vanilla and patchouli, it’s simple yet subtly seductive. It is also my husband’s favourite, he said it, “Smelt like heaven,” at the time of purchase and even now remarks on how the scent reminds him of our wedding and honeymoon.

I do have various other fragrances on rotation (I tend to choose to suit my mood) but I always have a bottle of Lady Vengeance to hand, this will definitely be a love affair that lasts for ever.

{Lauren} Chanel Coco Mademoiselle

I’ve been wearing Coco Mademoiselle for the last six years or so. I flit from one perfume to another but it’s always elegant Mademoiselle that I go back to. The juice is light and fresh with citrusy, oriental notes and the fragrance lasts all day.

One spritz and I instantly feel chic and feminine, like I could be in a Parisian apartment about to jump on a scooter and zip around the French streets.

When I reach the bottom of the bottle I start to have palpitations. Thankfully my husband seems to go on frequent and lengthy stag holidays that almost always involve a trip to duty free.

I know it’s far from an unusual choice and, dare I say it, Coco Mademoiselle has become fairly common, gracing the dressing tables of many of my friends. Some say it’s a youthful fragrance so perhaps it’s time for me to move on to a more grown-up Chanel perfume?

{Adam} Comme Des Garçon 2

I was reading an article about fashion house Comme Des Garçon a few years back – I forget why exactly, it was something to do with zany approaches to marketing – and I remember being drawn in by the fact that this seemingly French company was in fact Japanese. Who would have guessed?

I was intrigued by a new perfume mentioned in the article that supposedly recreated the smell of gold. I hasten to add that this was not the smell that would become my favourite scent to wear. The article went on to mention that the company had a history or creating alternative aromas including another that purported to have had a stab at bottling the fragrance of ink. This seemed like the perfect thing for a graphic designer to smell of so, based purely on that article, (the zany marketing was also clearly very successful marketing) I found myself hunting down Comme Des Garçon ‘2′.

I eventually found it in Selfridges (and subsequently House of Fraser) and discovered that there were two versions of the smell – a masculine version and a unisex version. It was the latter, lighter and less woody that I fell for. As far as smelling of ink goes I do sort of see what they’re getting at but I’m not 100% sold. It does have a unique smell and sensation that almost reminds me of the ozone-rich air that you get after a thunderstorm.

I’m not sure if any of that is selling it to you but I always get nice compliments! Officailly the notes are ink, Incense, Amber, Labdanum, Patchouli, Chinese, Cedarwood, New Aldehydes, Cumin, Angelica Root, Vetiver, Cade Oil, Absolute Maté, Magnolia, Absolute Folia.

{Miranda} Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh

I’ve checked, double-checked and checked again but apparently it’s true, Marc Jacobs launched the original Daisy fragrance back in 2007 (can you believe it?!). The grown-up but not too serious feminine-fruity-floral had me at first sniff and the chunky bottle topped with two oversized white and gold plastic daisies became a fixture on the mantelpiece where I keep my perfume collection (my bedroom being too small for a dressing table, sadly).

Four years later MJ added Eau So Fresh to the Daisy family and I fell hard for this new version of an old favourite. Smell-wise it’s a playful mash-up of raspberry, grapefruit, pear, plum, violets, wild rose, apple blossom, musks and cedarwood, making it a fruity floral, with a woody base, in perfume speak. One sniff and I’m instantly transported to a sun-drenched flower-filled meadow. Fickle fragrance fan that I am Eau So Fresh replaced the original Daisy in my affections and it’s been my go-to summer spritz ever since.

Apparently I’m not the only Daisy fragrance fan. Check out the #mjdaisychain hashtag on Instagram to see how much love there is out there for Daisy, Daisy Eau So Fresh and all the other members of the Daisy family. And, news just in, Daisy Dream, the latest incarnation of Daisy is set to launch in July. There’s no info on what it actually smells like but this time the juice is blue and the cap AND bottle are decorated with daisies. It would certainly look very pretty on my mantelpiece…
