Every lady should have a signature scent. Something that defines who she is and what she is about. A way to tell the world what how you want to be known and how you want to be remembered. The task of finding that signature scent should be taken lightly. And once you find it you should hold on to that scent with every ounce of strength you have. I found my signature scent a few years back and I vowed that day that I would never change. I have been told by many of my friends that every time they smell sweet pineapple they think of me. And pineapple is not a bad thing to be associated with if you ask me.
Yet, when I stumbled across Stila’s newest fragrance Mandarin Mist ($36, stilacosmetics.com), I realized it was time for me to move beyond pineapple. I wasn’t looking for a change but Mandarin Mist’s light and sweet citrus fragrance called to me in a way that I could not resist. It tells a story of a bright warm summer day. A day spent with friends drinking cocktails by the pool. Not a care in the world. Living free and smelling good. Stila’s Mandarin Mist had me at hello. I knew as I waved my freshly spritzed wrist under my nose, that the notes of mimosa and yuzu fruit would soon be what people associated with me. Sorry pineapple nothing against you, its just time for momma to make a change.
