Like choosing anything; where we go, what we like and how we smell…our choices tell a very real truth about who we are!
You just have to hear ‘I holiday in the South Of France‘ and already i’m thinking charming markets, picnics in hampers, Champagne, yacht shoes and a hint of Chanel Number 5!
BUT…Can we really stereotype in this way?
We did a little survey, nothing serious, just a fun girly chat to help us decide..!
We concluded that scents, like people and destinations are very personal when it comes to what we like. In a room full of ladies, none of us liked exactly the same! But can your scent say anything about you; and can that then tell us where we might like to holiday??
Let’s ready, steady AROMA!
