Call me crazy (because I am), but I like to choose my #POTD (perfume of the day) based on how I’m feeling or what the outfit would “smell like” if it had a scent. For instance, if I’m going on a date, I’ll wear something a little more flirty and fruity. If I’m going on a casting or an interview, I’ll wear something more musky and powerful. I’ve been in love with fragrance ever since I was a little girl, and I’ve literally matched my perfumes to my outfits and moods since… forever. So much so, that my friends would come up to me and ask, “Kamie, what does this outfit smell like?” So yeah, like I’m pretty much an expert 😉 Just kidding, but I definitely know a fantastic scent when I smell one!
Here are some of my all time faves!
1.6 oz – $78 at Sephora
My go-to perfume! This scent is so good all the time, but this is what I call my “power perfume.” It makes me feel like Beyoncé, so naturally I wear it to anything that’s important where I know I’ll be networking & meeting new people. It gives me a different kind of confidence when I wear it and I literally always get compliments on it!
Valentino Donna Fragrance
1.7 oz – $97 at Nordstrom
You might recognize this gorgeous scent from my Christmas Wish List! I finally got a bottle, and it came straight from SantaMom 🙂 This scent is another great power perfume, but it’s also a little flirty and mysterious, so it can double for date-night or a night out with the girls! A little pricer than most, I think it’s absolutely worth it if you want a fragrance that can go from day to night!
Laura Mercier Vanille Gourmande
1.7 oz – $55 at Nordstrom
So. Freaking. Yummy. I can’t say enough about this fragrance. It literally smells like sweet vanilla candy goodness and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since I caught a whiff of it on a friend of mine. She started talking to me and I was like, “Sorry. BUT WHAT PERFUME IS THAT?!” It’s one of those show stopping but soft fragrances that make you do a double take *Missy Elliott Voice*. But seriously, this scent is perfect for a night with bae, or just a nice cool weather day. It’s perfect.
1.7 oz – $105 at Sephora
Definitely a splurge, but I love this fragrance, especially in the summer time! It’s a great warm weather, musk with just the right amount of floral elegance!
Versace Bright Crystal Absolu
1.7 oz – $86 at Sephora
Bright and beautiful! This perfume is a great morning pick-me-up with the sweet scent of yuzu and pomegranate. Love this scent for date night and on vacation (getting real specific now lol) It’s absolutely fabulous!
What’s yo flavor, tell me what’s yo flavor? 🙂 Haha, sorry it’s Friday and I’m getting a little loopy. But let me know what fragrances make you feel sexy, flirty, fun and powerful in the comments section!
Have a great weekend!
