{Lookbook} ScentSational Experience

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen the
picture I posted from the Elle Fragrance Event at Hyde Park Corner last week. Even
though it was a Valentine’s Day event, I decided against an obvious red and
pink ensemble and instead chose to wear a blush-toned dress adorned with flower
applique detailing on the edge. To contrast the soft, romantic lines of the dress,
I popped on a double-breasted boyfriend blazer and finished off the look with
tan accessories. The olive green and blush pink colour combination is such a
winner in my opinion.







Dress – Forever New
Blazer – Forever New
Bag – Dune London
Shoes – Miladys


Back to the event itself, the shopping centre was
beautifully decorated with gigantic hearts and lips to celebrate the month of
love. The snippet from Swan Lake that was performed by the Johannesburg Ballet
Theatre added to the dreamy atmosphere of the evening, however the main
attraction was the perfumes that we were able to touch, spray and sniff to our
heart’s content.


Fragrance and lingerie take centre stage during the weeks
leading up to the Day of Love and rightfully so. Fragrance is such a personal
item that can boost your confidence in an instant and finding “The One” is a special
journey. This analogy had me inspired and I decided to share my fragrance
journey with you.



Tommy Girl by Tommy Hilfiger and DKNY Be Delicious, to me,
smells like teen spirit. I wore both these fragrances throughout high school
and one whiff of either of these scents, takes me back to carefree days hanging
out in the corridors before class.



The flirty, fun and sweet scent of both Versace Bright
Crystal and Escada Delicate Notes completely embodies my varsity days.



Upon entering the working world and experiencing debit orders, I knew that I had to get a little more
serious. As I made the transition, so did my perfume. The adjectives that I
would use to describe Chanel’s Chance and Dolce & Gabbana’s Dolce are;
fresh, classy and feminine. The same adjectives that I hope to exemplify.
Do you have a signature scent? Let me know in the comment section below. I would love to hear from you.
