    The Good Girl Guide to Finding the Perfect Fragrance

    What’s Your Fragrance?

    Fragrance is one of the most wonderful things to wear. The pleasant, sweet smell of a fragrance can make you nostalgic or bring you new feelings and memories. Perfume for that reason is an accessory, wouldn’t you agree?

    Nothing inspires me more than the modern elegant woman, and for this reason I am dedicating this post to one of my favorite perfumes by Carolina Herrera. For me, the “Good Girl” perfume is the most intoxicating scent I have ever experienced with its unique blend of tuberose, jasmine sambac, tonka beans, and cocoa.  I love the smell of warm florals with the beautiful contradictions and the ever-present duality of the modern women and modern life.

    When I think about the modern woman, I am reminded of strength, elegance, mystery, and courage. So it is no surprise that apart from the floral fragrance of Carolina Herrera Good Girl perfume, I am also drawn to the uniquely designed bottle in the shape of a stiletto which evokes the beauty of Couture. After all, a good fragrance should have a certain personality that makes people identify the smell with you.

    As a general rule, it is best to go fragrance shopping with a small selection of scents you plan on sampling. Do your research, have an idea of the kind of fragrance that you feel embodies you, and if you really do not know where to start, engage the help of the in-store sales staff to help you.

    Your scent is your signature. If all else fails, just go for what you love.  Is it sweet or citrus fragrances? Floral, oriental, woody, or fresh?

    The Fragrance

    So what does the modern woman smell like? Carolina Herrera Good Girl perfume has a floral wave of white sambac jasmine and tuberose in contrast with the mysterious underlying smell of tonka bean and cocoa.

    • One of my new favorite fragrances; a mature smell but in the best way possible. It exemplifies the effortless elegance and aptitude of the House of Herrera.
    • Sweet notes of warm floral with the intoxicating tonka, and tuberose which gives the fragrance fluidity and femininity.
    • An attractive fragrance bottle in the form of a high-heeled shoe captures the essence, spirit, and imagination of the modern powerful woman.

    When choosing the perfect perfume, it is key to pick a fragrance you usually like. Trying testers can help decide if a fragrance works with your body chemistry. Additionally, samples can give you the opportunity to try a variety of smells over a span of time to decide which one works for you. The key is never to settle.

    I think the Good Girl perfume is one you need to experience for yourself. It is bold, powerful, and daring. A perfume I will be indulging in during the Spring and Summer months.
