Look, there’s just something lovely about the scent of roses that I can't resist, it’s quintessentially English; it’s the black of my beauty wardrobe. If a product has a rose option that is the one I will pick first. I put roses on my body, in my hair, on my face, I drink it, and I spritz it all over so I come up smelling of roses every single day.
Who doesn’t want to smell like flowers? I’m not talking that hideous overly floral scent that makes your nose crinkle from the assault; I’m talking about soft and gentle fragrances, a barely even there scent, a delicate touch. I’m very particular about my rose products, I favour “freshly cut” over “full English garden.” I want to smell like a flower not a stale bouquet.
There’s something so dreamy about these flowers, I never tire of their smell. Every time I discover a new rose scented something I am all like, “oooh ROSES” like I’ve never smelled roses before in my life. I have an entire wish list devoted to rose related products, that’s how seriously I take roses.
I don’t know whether it was my grandmother’s rose garden, epic in size and requiring a garden plan to keep track of the varieties and where they could be found. Or maybe it was the part in Disney’s Alice in Wonderland where all the flowers sing. Who knows where this obsession came from?
I understand if you’re not into it though, I mean, you’re wrong and you need to learn to love it but I get that your favourite scent might be different from mine.
So what’s the one fragrance you can’t live without?
