Today I’m wearing two fragrances that I’ve layered. I have tons of fragrances, maybe 50 or 60 bottles, I gravitate around three or four and use the other ones just for display. I love to layer, so for that I use mono notes, ones that are easily layered on top of each other. Firstly I’ve used Narciso Rodriguez Musc For Her, which is impossible to find any more because it was a limited edition, so I had to get my friend to ship this back from the States, from Bergdorf Goodman. It’s beautiful; a velvety, abstract floral musk scent, very ‘transparent’ and with a lot of Indol, which has a jasmine note to it and I absolutely love it.

We rarely describe scents as easily and accurately as we describe the things that our eyes can see. However, except from the people who suffer from anosmia (disability to smell), we all know how to use our nose in an intuitive way, we are just poorly aware of our capabilities to do so, or worse, we are rarely taught the words of the smells. The good news is, we aren’t blind to smells, we just need the right tools to unlock the vocabulary of odours.
