I consider myself lucky that E. and I have the same taste in fragrances, because is there anything worse than your significant other simply loving a scent that makes you gag? (Well, yes, of course, there are worse things, but this is a beauty blog, so moving on…) E. and I are basically fragrance soul mates, so we both gravitate toward spicy, musky, sexy scents with notes like vanilla, musk, leather, sandalwood, you get the idea.
When I heard that epic perfume range Frédéric Malle was collaborating with Liberty to celebrate Frédéric Malle’s 5-year anniversary, it made for a no-brainer post. To commemorate the anniversary, Frédéric sorted through the Liberty archives to give the 18 hand-selected bottles in the limited-edition collection iconic Liberty prints. (Liberty, you see, is famous for its centuries-old traditions of floral prints and artistic collaborations.)
As a fragrance gal, naturally I’m picky about what E. wears. Just like in my own scents, I gravitate toward musk…but I also like his scent to have a hint of brightness and freshness. (I’ll keep the dirty Tom Fords for myself, thanks!)
Hermes Eau D’Orange Verte may be the most glamorous unisex fragrance of all time.
