What’s your signature fragrance Anna Bey?
I get this question a lot from my fans and followers, and today I’ve decided to share my scent with you.
Before my level up transformation, I used to wear perfumes like the first edition of “Agent Provocateur” which I’ve loved, but after smelling it on too many other people I got bored of buying it. Another favourite of mine was the pink bottle of “Armani Glam” but they stopped producing it many years ago. Both of these perfumes were “common” and you could easily purchase them in any store.
I then felt that I had enough with anything mass-market, and didn’t want to smell like every other person out there. So I went on a quest of finding my next signature smell in more rare perfumes.
Back then, my current perfume could only be found in one or two stores in London. Today you have it in more places than that. I discovered it by chance, someone wore it and I fell in love instantly, decided to try it on myself. Which I did.
So Anna, what perfume do you wear?
Let me introduce to you,
“Portrait of a Lady” by Frederic Malle.
(Please note. I had no idea that years later “ladies” would become my signature saying, quite a funny coincidence!)
How does “Portrait of a Lady” smell like?
When you first spray the perfume on your skin, a sensitive nose might think “This smells too heavy & too much oriental!”. But after 20 min when the perfume has blended with the oils of your skin, out comes this amazing perfectly blended smell of….
Patchouli, Sandalwood, Red roses, Cinnamon, Musk & Frankincense
The smell is very smooth, velvety with the feel of baroque to it. Could be similar to my old Agent Provocateur perfume.
Do You Wear Any Other Perfumes?
Since I discovered this perfume in 2014, I have mainly worn only “Portrait of a Lady”. 7 years later, I’m starting to crave having some additional fragrances for variation. Before I never felt the need of. I believe many people are either of: some only wear one scent and make it their signature smell. Others like having different perfumes and depending on mood, season they will alternate. Perhaps I’ll try the latter group just for variation.
