Remember when I decided that I needed a new signature fragrance? I’ve been wearing Clinique Happy since it was introduced in 1997, and while I still love it, it’s time for a change. I wanted something a little more sophisticated and substantial, but not old or fussy. And after spraying myself with everything you can imagine (which I did not enjoy, let me tell you) I think I’ve found a winner: Burberry Brit Eau de Parfum.
Sephora categorizes this as an “oriental floral,” and while it’s a substantial scent, it’s not heavy or cloying. It has a floral, citrusy top note, followed by a richer vanilla base note. Honestly, when I tested this scent, I couldn’t stop sniffing myself.
I haven’t actually pulled the trigger and bought a bottle yet — I’m a little nervous about switching scents after all these years — but every time I’m near a Sephora (which Charlie calls “the beauty shop”), I spritz myself with the Burberry Brit and I love it a little more.
What’s your everyday scent? Do you wear more than one fragrance, or are you a loyalist? Or is it plain old soap and water for you?
