When I started my freshman year of high school, one of my girlfriends told me she had picked out a perfume to be her “signature scent.” So naturally, I needed a signature scent too. I had worn a few body sprays here and there, but had never had a real perfume (not just borrowed from my mom). It turned into a little tradition of mine, every school year I’d carefully select the scent that I was going to wear for that grade. I still have a few of those bottles at my parent’s house and when I smell them again, I’m instantly transported right back to the halls of my high school. Each one brings up unique memories for how I felt or what I was going through at the time.
I’m partnering with Sephora today to share the perfume I’ve picked out for this year, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet. I was drawn to the perfume on the packaging alone. I mean, light pink and a dainty bow? Right up my alley. It’s not always the case, but you can and should judge this perfume by its cover.
I’m not usually drawn to uber feminine scents, but this one is light and refreshing with a healthy dose of floral. I always test perfumes before I commit because I’m sensitive to smell and some perfumes can trigger migraines. I popped into Sephora one morning to spritz a bit on so I could wear it throughout the day to ensure no migraines and it passed the test!
I also want to note that the fragrance is very buildable. I like that you can do a quick spray for a light barely-there scent or add additional sprays for a stronger, more robust scent. It really can be worn as an everyday perfume or for special occasions. I’ve been doing a light spritz of it every morning and just love how fresh it remains throughout the day. I also want to get the rollerball size to travel with!
I always find describing perfumes so difficult, but if I had to explain what Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet smells like, I’d say that it’s like sitting down for high tea. Ladylike, delicate, sweet, and floral.
If you’re like me and want to find a signature scent for fall, try using Sephora’s Fragrance Finder. It walks you through everything from who it’s for (i.e. you or a gift) to how powerful you like your scents and everything in between. From there, you’re given a list of fragrances to try based on your scent profile and preferences. Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet topped my list.
