My New Scent for Fall

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.

Okay I love everything about this outfit! Do you have the outfit details? Thanks so much!


What a fun series of photos to show off the scent! The colour scheme is so pretty. I *just* learned that ‘high tea’ and ‘afternoon tea’ are different things (I lived in London for 6 years and only went to Fortnum and Mason once for afternoon tea, but it was GLORIOUS). I would have thought ‘high tea’ would be the fancy one, but nope! (sure sounds fancier to me).


I find I have a signature scent! I love trying new perfumes but always go back to the same one I’ve worn for years. My friends will even say when they smell it, it reminds them of me!



1. You look SO cute!!
2. These pictures turned out so well.
3. This makes me miss the Laduree Soho courtyard during the fall months!!

I have a signature scent too! I Love Love by Moschino. Its hard to find now, most of the time I find it at Marshall’s or online but I’ve worn this perfume since High School and all my friends and family still point out how much that scent reminds them of me. Sometimes I switch it up but I like smelling like “me”.


I love how a scent can transport you back to a former time and place and even remind you of someone else dearly loved (my late grandmother, for example).

So this is not a criticism – just a point of education for the future. I know you love Tea. High Tea is actually dinner/supper. It’s what working class people would eat and drink as a more substantial meal. Afternoon Tea is the afternoon social ritual to which you are referring. That’s why if you often read British authors they refer to tea as their dinner. I am a big fan of Afternoon Tea, so I’m just being a know-it-all. 🙂


Haha YES! My step mother is Aussie and always refers to dinner as tea. “What would you like for tea?” “Let’s have tea at home” etc.

This was such a pretty shoot! It’s still quite warm on the east coast but I’m looking forward to when I’ll be able to layer up comfortably every day 🙂 I don’t use perfume, but I do use essential oils for therapeutic effects, and they also have nice scents! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s


Scent is so weird how it’s linked with memory! I recently bought the orange blossom perfume from Le Labo because I smelled it and was immediately taken back to when I studied abroad in Spain where orange trees bloomed in the spring. Hollister Malaia was my signature in 8th grade, haha.


Thanks for sharing this! I love the idea of perfume, I even recently bought my first ever bottle of real perfume. But I’m so scared of using too much and having it be overwhelming. Do you have any tips for a newbie like me on how to wear the perfume (like where to apply it – wrists, hair, neck? And how many sprays/pumps to use?)

I love Dior! My mother used to wear Diorissimo and it srill reminds me of her. But it was only for special occasions. I’m not sure if I could wear perfume every day because I have to sit with 2 colleagues in an interpretation booth and some people are over sensitive to scents. But the miss Dior blooming bouquet could be a good fit: I read the comments on the Sephora site and the sent seems to be very subtle. So maybe I could use it without incommodating my colleagues?
