I always associate perfumes with memories. One sniff and it takes me right back to that moment, one that I’d wish to cherish forever and relive every time possible. I also agree, that your perfume acts as an extension to your personality, defining the role you play in the memories of others. Which is why, I am always so particular about the scents I pick for myself, as I want them to recite a story untold. A little inside secret, unaltered by the obvious, exterior surface; it’s a part of you that can be displayed when you’re comfortable enough to do so. I have an affinity for perfumes & I won’t lie, there is one allocated to every recurring mood. The happy perfume, the confident perfume, the sexy perfume, the pick me up perfume, you name it, I’ve got it. Sometimes, I let my feelings decide on which one I ‘d want to wear, the other times, I let my perfume lead me the way it wants. It’s mind boggling to think, how much of a difference a little bottle of complex formulas can make to your ever changing vibe, adding a punctuation to your look, a finishing touch while making you feel like a new person, every time.
I tried the original Modern Muse perfume last year and instantly fell for the atypical notes. It was very different from the scents I already had in my collection so I obliged & added it to the every growing collection. This year, I was introduced to the Le Rouge version of it & the red edition of the bottle excited me a little. I won’t lie, the first time I gave it a sniff, a feminine exuberance embraced me. What started being a predominately floral scent, faded into a fascinating, modern mix of floral and fruity. The brand describes it as an extroverted, glamorous, sophisticated scent and I’d say that’s putting it quite precisely. When planning for this shoot, I wanted my outfit and my mood to depict just that, which is why I went for this glamorous and subtly sexy lace dress, paring it with statement earrings and a bold, red lip and being captured by the love of life was the cherry on the cake, making it another distinct memory. I personally think that this is a scent most women will like, some off the bat, some will need getting used to, but in the end it will be a special one. Give it a sniff, the next time you have access to it and maybe like me, you may just find your new favourite scent!
