Things Every Girl Needs: A Signature Scent

Today's guest blogger in the Things Every Girl Needs series is the lovely Emily from the blog Simply Southern.  She's here to post about another thing we all need: a signature scent.

Hi Y'all! I'm Emily from Simply Southern and I believe that there are many things every women should have, most importantly a signature scent! Unless you have a boyfriend, husband or close friend you share clothes with, you never really notice that a person's scent is very disctint and recognizable. For women, this scent usually comes from something besides our shampoo or laundry detergent (like men).

 It was not until high school that I decided that I wanted to pick a perfume to be my scent-- something that my friends would smell and say, "oh yes, there's Emily!" I decided on Lolita Lempicka. I was sold not only on the unique design of the apple-shaped bottle, but also the scent of ivy leaves with violet, ivory and a smooth hint of vanilla (help from I made it mine throughout high school, but it wasn't until college that I learned that my perfume was not the scent that reminded people of me. It was, in fact, my hair product, Rusk's leave in conditioner. I swear by it. It smells of passionflower and aloe, and is the most relaxing scent out there...some might even call it "heaven."

A signature scent it something most women have, but can't necessarily identify. That was the case for me, at least, considering I went many years not realizing how great my hair product smelled! So next time you take a shower, I present you with this challenge: look at how many products you use that have a scent and try to pick one that you can make your own. Ask around to see what people think is the one that is "so you!"

Thanks for stopping by, Emily!  I agree that we all have a signature scent whether we know it or not.  According to my husband, mine is Pantene shampoo and not the Burberry perfume I assumed it was!

  1. Love the idea of a signature scent but I change my perfume far too often

  2. I would loooove to have a signature scent, but I just don't think my body holds on to perfumes. I'm jealous of people who do!

  3. Just found your blog through Emily's and I love the title--I too am obsessed with cardigans and think I have 8 or 9 at last count (and am always looking for more) :)

  4. I'm not a big fan of perfume, but I do love the idea of a very very subtle signature scent. I wash my hair with Neutrogena shampoo once a week to combat build-up - when I do, DH inevitably notices.
