Giving Up Your Favorite Scent?

Oh My God! The thought of giving up your favorite scent is traumatic to a lot of you. You've been wearing it since college and now the company has removed it from their line. In a flurry of unprintable words, #$@^% and tears, you ask yourself, Why did they do this to me? Doesn't matter. Whatever their reasoning, it will never be good enough for you. What's a girl to do? Time to find a replacement!

This was your Signature Scent and while this might not be the easiest thing to do, it's an opportunity for you to discover who you've become in the world of scent. Your old scent brought you comfort and familiarity. A new scent can invite adventure. Who are you now? Is your nose gravitating toward clean, floral scents or are you being drawn towards warm, sexy and spicy scents.

The thing about perfumes is that, they become part of you. Wear it long enough and you really don't notice it until someone makes a comment. However, when you take on a new perfume, it's like taking on a new persona. The wind brings a breeze of newness past your nose and as you search for it, you smell this sexy and mysterious aroma, only to find out that it's You.

If you're looking for a new Favorite Scent, here are a few suggestions from the different scent categories.

Green and Clean - Consider Jo Maloneís Green Wheat and Meadowsweet or Dance & Gabbanaís Dolce Garden. I first experienced Jo Malone over 20 years ago in a body cream. It was a floral scent, her original Tuberose Body Cream and Cologne. Iím surprised that the corner of body cream that remains in the jar still smells great on my skin. Yes, I will do a patch test once a year just to see what happens. To this day I have had no reactions. I guess we're both aging very well.

Warm and Spicy - Give Muglerís Aura and Diorís Poison Girl Roller-Pearl a try. When I wore perfumes, Opium was always my favorite warm and spicy brand.

Floral - Try Tory Burch's Just like Heaven and Miu Miuís L'Eau Rosee

Sparkling Citrus - Would you ever think of Louis Vuitton as a citrus scent? I didn't. It seems as though they've introduced Le Jour Se Leve. There's also Altaia's Tuberose in Blue.

Fruits - Kenzo's World, Marc Jacobs' Daisy Twinkle and Versace's Dylan Blue Pour Femme, all offer fruity scents for those of you that like sweet aromas.

If you're looking for other scents to replace or at least consider replacing your Signature Scent, try Ralph Laurenís Woman, Ex NIHILOís Viper Green or Giorgio Armani's Si Passione.

We all know that scents are very personal. It might take you a while to let go of the familiar fragrance you were accustomed to. Take a deep breath and move over to the wild side, Ok, a new side of the scent world. You just might like the new discovery you've found.

Thatís it for this week.
