Fragrance … What do you suggest?

Obsession Perfume for Women by Calvin Klein has been my signature fragrance for as long as I can remember. Obsession’s feminine scent possesses a blend of citrus, vanilla and greens lowering to notes of sandalwood, spices and musk- classified as a flowery fragrance. Whenever I have worn it men and women alike often say, “You smell so good” and want to know what I’m wearing. Yes, this fragrance has been good to me, making the decision to replace it a challenging one – until now.

Mr. G. has surprised me with an upcoming trip to Paris next month! I ask you, what better city one could ask for to discover themselves and a new fragrance along the way.

With a firm decision to say-goodbye to Obsession, the challenge becomes what to replace it with? Dear friends I am turning to you for some help! The choice has been narrowed down to three - with a 4th open to suggestions. Every suggest will be explored and when I return from Paris I will announce my new signature fragrance.

I  would love to hear what is your signature fragrance and why you have choosen it!


  1. Hello Sophia,
    I adore Caron fragrances, Rose and Or et Noir are the two that I wear the most, but Chanel #5 is one that I hold close to my heart.

  2. chanel 5 is a classic!

    For everything about fashion:

  3. I like Armani CODE. Reminds me of a Discontinued french perfume i loved. Full of personality. I wear COCO Chanel. Strong personality too.
    Gros bisous

  4. Oh my goodness how wonderful - Paris!! I'm sure you will find a whole array of fragrances there to choose from. I currently love Miss Dior Cherie, L'eau... its gorgeous for spring! x

  5. Thank you for visiting and your kind comments.A fragrance hunting trip to Paris.....sounds like the perfect excuse to me! I can only wear Jo Malone 154 as I am fragrance sensitive but do miss all my other favorites. Your posts below remind me of when we lived in Toronto and I miss it. All the best. A Gift Wrapped Life.

  6. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and your lovely comments! It is nice to find another blogger who knows Toronto :O)

    I love RL Style for evening...during the day I wear VS Heavenly Angels or Philosophy's Amazing Grace :O)

    I envy your Paris plans! I miss that city!

  7. Firstly Sophia, how awesome is that trip to Paris. Barry is totally jealous I'm sure. We were just talking about it. He was there about 20 years ago. I hope you guys have an AWESOME trip!

    Fragrance ... hmmm. I, too, have used Obsession for many years. Poison was always the closest second although I haven't worn it in years. My girlfriend got a sample of "Sung" by ... you guessed it, Alfred Sung. Very nice. Light fragrance, great for the summer. Other than that, I'm a little lost. My asthma kinda prevents me from getting to know fragrances too well. Anything too florally (I know, I'm an avid gardener .... go figure ... I'm allergic to cats too but it doesn't stop me from having 3 of them) or citrusy sends me into a coughing fit.

    Lastly, thanks for your last comment on my blog. 3 acres, huh? Given enough money, I could do some serious damage ... and have a blast doing it. Even without a lot of cash, there's lots to do... Seriously, if you'd like some help, I'm always happy to help new victims ... I mean friends ...

    Have an awesome day!
