The Signature Scent

This post is an ode to my favorite perfume.


I have been wearing “for her” by Narciso Rodriguez for about 5 years now. You’d think I’d get sick of a scent… but alas. Every time I get a whiff of this on my clothes, I think to myself: Damn, I smell good.

I have gotten compliments from strangers, acquaintances, coworkers, and friends. To be honest, I’m never as popular as when I wear this fragrance.


What I love about having a “signature scent” is that people associate me with a particular fragrance. So whenever a friend gets a whiff of “for her”, they immediately think of me. What a way to leave a lasting impression, eh? And what a relief that people associate me with a gorgeous scent and not – I don’t know – the smell of sweat or farts.

I’m rubbish at describing scents but let me try:

It’s musky, woodsy, mysterious, warm and sultry (can a scent be sultry?) with gentle hints of vanilla. It’s a romantic, elegant scent. What you’d imagine Elizabeth Taylor or Grace Kelly might wear.


Not to mention, just look at that packaging. My god. Good enough to EAT.

Whoever Narciso is, he’s a damn genius.
