Fragrance wardrobe

We’ve used the same fragances for years. For her, by Narciso Rodriguez for P. and Le Feau Light by Issey Miyake for me. P. still uses the famous velvety scent by Narciso Rodriguez but my beloved perfume was discontinued three years ago. Drama. Why oh why did they discontinue that wonderful fresh scent? Since then, I’ve been using Jo Malone’s Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne mostly. But recently we’ve discovered our mutual passion for masculine aromas. They are susually lighter, fresher and more vibrant than most women fragances, which we usually find too sweet or too powerful.

Fragance_wardrobe_2We started with Siete, by Loewe. It has a touch of of incense that remind us of Seville, that’s why we bought it. I use it when I have important meetings at work because it makes me feel powerful. Then we bought the classic: Le Male, by Jan Paul Gaultier. It’s sweet but not overly so, sexy and playful. Afterwards we followed the recommendation of a friend and got the Homme Cologne by Dior. Citric and super fresh, it’s what I called a Monday morning essencial: something to start the week with the right attitude.

The last additions to our fragance wardrobe have been the Mirto di Panarea scent, by Acqua di Parma, and Jo Malone’s Wood Sage and Sea Salt fragance. Both of them smell like holidays: the first one remind us to our honeymoon in Italy and the second on smells like a Winter day by the sea. They are absolutely perfect for travel enthusiasts like us.

So, as you can see we’ve turned into a couple of fragance addicts. Which are your favourite scents? Any nice recommendation? Do you love men fragances like we do?

PS: I’ve got my eyes (or should I say nose?) on these new scents.


  1. I’ve been using the Narciso Rodriguez for years now… It’s my absolute favorite and I don’t ever feel like changing it. I don’t know what I’d do if they discontinued it…
    I prefer heavier, musky perfumes over light and fresh ones.
    Have you ever tried My Insolence by Guerlain?
