Late one afternoon, I walked along rows and rows of orange trees with one of my closest friends. She picked a flower off one of the trees and gave it to me. The scent was beautiful and romantic.
Later, I was at a department store, sampling the various Jo Malone colognes and one caught my nose. It was this – the Orange Blossom cologne. One whiff of it and it whisked me back to that day strolling by the orchid of orange trees.
I love perfumes and the romantic scentiments behind them, but I am not one to splurge on them. It takes me a LONG time before I can commit. But after many trips back to the Jo Malone counter and asking for SO MANY samples of it, my husband finally gifted me a bottle.
When women talk about their signature scent, these days, the Jo Malone Orange Blossom cologne has become mine. I even lugged the bottle with me for my wedding at Riviera Maya, Mexico, because thinking of my special day without it.
Have you tried this scent? What’s your signature scent?
