Imagine life without perfume. No scent lingering and no memories coming back to life from the whiff of a scent as you walk past someone.
No smell from the flowers and beautiful scents we have around us.
I have been a lover of perfume, especially floral scents, from an early age.
The days of using flower petals as a child and mixing them with my mums expensive perfume without her knowing was great fun…
Until she caught me !
I learnt that I could create a fragrance of my own, albeit with a few weeds mixed in with the petals.
At the age of 9/10, I thought my creations were amazing !
I also learnt to be a very fast runner….!
My late mum had a wonderful collection of expensive perfume and I’m sure she didn’t get to wear half of them.
The expensive bottles sat on her bedside table and inside her wardrobe for years.
One day I thought I’d help her out by using some for my own creations.
she would surely appreciate how creative I was being and there may have even been a chance that those that I did create would potentially be used by her.

The 1970’s and perfume
Back in the days of my childhood, in the 1970’s, petal pressing was also a big thing for girls to do.
Creating our very own album of ‘flattened’ flowers and the friend who had the most ‘exotic’ flower that was pressed was clearly delighted with their ‘win’.
The neighbours garden flowers took a battering whilst these creations were happening but it was all part of growing up and experimenting with different perfume scents.
I’ve grown up wearing perfume daily. It became part of my morning routine and a daily spritz to make me feel good before I left the house was a daily occurrence.
Every day is special so why not wear a perfume even when we have nothing planned ? If it makes you feel better and happy, it’s the perfect excuse.
Fast forward to 2015 and at the age of 43, I had the opportunity to work with a perfume company.
I love the freedom we have today to choose what suits our skin type the best.
Not everyone can wear the same perfume as our skin reacts differently.
Helping others choose their perfume
I have worked in the fragrance industry for the past 7 years and I enjoy helping others to find a fragrance that is perfect for their skin.
With so many fragrances available, we can choose one that suits daytime in the office/workplace and a stronger fragrance for a night out.
We all love to smell gorgeous and a fragrance that suits our skin is just an added accessory to our outfit.
Even when we are pottering around at home, it’s still good to wear a daytime scent. A passion for fragrances
Perfume lifts our spirits and with so many perfumes today to choose from, we really are spoilt when it comes to feeling good about ourselves.
Fragrances vary so much in price too. Most will shop online as it is the easiest way to purchase products nowadays. Delivered direct to your door without the endless walking around from shop to shop.
We can often get online products cheaper too and everyone loves to save money as much as possible without missing out on treats.
We find ourselves searching for comparison prices online and shopping at trustworthy sites to ensure we are buying the best quality.
It can easily go unnoticed if we accidentally purchase fake brands so we have to be very careful what we are purchasing.
Life without perfume
Perfume has long been a ‘go to’ product for both men and women for many years and with the fragrances of today, they just get better.
There are so many new perfumes to try and we really are spoilt for choice. The list just gets longer as more fragrances are created.
If I can help other women and men, find their perfect fragrance, that puts a smile on my face and I know I have offered my knowledge to help someone with their next purchase.

A great way to take a small perfume with you on holiday or just to pop inside your bag for work. The 10ml Collection by KIERIN NYC are great for this.
