Women’s Perfume, My First, My Last, My Everything!

Growing up, you remember your first perfume like you remember your first big crush. As a teenager, the moment I first clapped eyes on an oiled-up Peter Andre (eek!) in the ‘Mysterious Girl’ video, was as memorable as taking my first awkward steps into adulthood and dousing myself with my older sister’s perfume. Back then, Charlie Red took pride of place on my dresser – and I literally wore it like it was going out of fashion.

Thankfully, it never did. As the years passed, though, my perfume taste gradually matured and classy favourites like Jean Paul Gaultier and J’adore soon replaced my stash of Charlie. But unlike your first real crush, you never completely go off your first proper perfume. The familiar, zingy notes of Charlie Red prompted my perfume buying decisions from then on – and I never really steered too far away from it!

And whether you realise it or not, you generally prefer perfumes that best match your personality. If you’re sassy and confident, you’ll like sharp, attention-grabbing fragrances like Gwen Stefani’s new Harajuku Lovers range, while the traditional and demure amongst you may have a soft spot for the natural notes of floral fragrances like Lovely Sarah Jessica Parker


Celebrity favourites like Paris Hilton's scent and J Lo's Glow are winners if you’re after affordable ‘stand-out-from-the crowd’ chic, while classic, timeless scents like Channel’s Coco Mademoiselle should be reserved for that special occasion.And it really shouldn’t be as hard as you think to pick that perfect perfume for a loved one. Scan their dressing table and make a list of the perfumes they already wear - in most cases you’ll see a subtle pattern emerging.

Do they go for bold, rich scents like Thierry Mugler’s Angel Perfume and Alien or are they a fan of floral fragrances like Marc Jacobs Daisy and Kenzo's Flower? With this in mind, you should easily be able to make a snappy decision based on their past perfume-buying habits.Want to turn heads and catch the attention of that hot hunk?

Bold, sharp scents like Diesel Fuel For Life and Ghost Cherish usually win hands down. Look out for perfumes with a warm, rich zing and a mix of spices for an instant hit, while light, soft tones are perfect for balmy summer days. Perfume buying should be fun – and, however much you wear your favourite fragrance, to you – it will never go out of fashion. And, like my Charlie Red, that perfect scent will always have a special place in your heart.
