6 Perfumes for Every Occasion
They say that scent is the strongest sense tied to memory. If that's true than the exact right perfume for a special day, moment or even a signature everyday fragrance becomes that much more important. We have six options for six different occasions- each one a perfect match for whatever the day brings!
Your Scent: The name says it all, Lovestruck by Vera Wang (C$79.00) is the perfect fragrance for a date night. The perfume aims to capture the feeling of a woman who is struck by love and captivated by passion. Can you get anymore romantic? Spritz on this feminine and floral perfume lightly and let it settle for a sweet and sophisticated aroma.
Top Notes: luscious pink guava, heavenly angelica flower
Heart Notes: delicate tuberose

Wear it with: Glam it up with a sky high pair of Jessica Simpson Para High Heels (US$98.00) and keep it sheer and shimmery with Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy Lipstick (US$30.00).
Your Scent: Kenzo FlowerTag (C$79.00) is appropriate for day time and the office without being too 'old lady' or stuffy. It's a fresh fragrance with a punch of floral notes with sensual undertones. The bottle is designed to be reminiscent of graffiti tagging to evoke your free, spontaneous spirit.

Your Scent: Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift and Elizabeth Arden (C$78.00) is a great option for the younger girl who wants a fresh, sweet scent by doesn't want anything too heavy or musky.

Your Scent: Lancome Tresor Midnight Rose (C$75.00) has a soft but spicy smell, the perfect scent for the holiday season. The strong rose smell is feminine while the pink pepper gives it an edge. With vanilla musk, it's also a very romantic perfume- mistletoe anyone?

Wear it with: A universally flattering classic dress in a deep colour like this Top Shop Claret Sleeveless Tuck Shift Dress (C$84.00) and a great go to kit like Benefit 'I'm Glam, Therefore I Am' Make Up Kit (C$40.00).
Your Scent: Lazing around on a weekend, you don't want a musky or intense perfume. A light, fresh and modern fragrance like Demeter's Laundromat (US$39.50) is concentrated enough to deliver scent but won't over power your senses. It's clean smell is comforting and nostalgic.
Wear it with: A trendy but practical Forever 21 Plaid Poncho (C$17.80) and instead on layering on foundation, try Tarina Tarantino Pearl Glow Luminizing Primer to give your skin a natural dewey glow (US$32.00).

i tried the tresor midnight rose ,i had a sample. not quiet a fan of it.
For awhile now Ive been curious as to what Wonderstruck by Tay Swift smells like and have been tempted to buy a bottle! I see its on the list here so I guess I should go try it :)
I like that pink dress.
I'm absolutely loving Kenzo's FlowerTag right now! I didn't think I would because I also thought Kenzo was a more mature brand but the scent is grown up without being too musty or mature. It's very modern and light and floral.
I love the dresses for the holiday and girl's night out just saying!
