Today is a special day because it is my 27th birthday! To celebrate, I thought I’d share one of my favorite signature fragrances: Miss Dior. Recently, I purchased the Miss Dior Hair Mist from Sephora, which retails for $52. It’s a bit of a luxury since it’s only a 1 oz bottle, but I did get it in the Sephora sale, so it was 20% off!
I love the concept of a hair mist because I’m very short, and I feel that hair fragrance allows the scent to waft up. This scent is also a warm floral that seems perfect for any season. It contains bergamot which is one of my favorite fragrance notes, and it is not musky at all, so it retains a youthful quality.
Signature scents are fun because they’re like a calling card that people will associate with you. I’ve had a few signature scents in my life. It seems that as I evolve as a person, my fragrance interest also evolves. In high school, I wore Lucky You by Lucky Brand. It’s a very sweet, floral fragrance which kind of signified who I wanted to be at the time – flirty and playful. But in college, I wanted to evoke something else – I wanted to feel more mature but still be alluring. In some ways, I wanted to seem older than I was. During that period in my life, I wore Guilty by Gucci, a warmer scent with notes of amber and patchouli. Now, I think my interest in Miss Dior blends the two past scents in some way: it’s still warm and more mature, but it’s softer with its florals.
