I love scents. I also love fragrances.
I really enjoy scenting my home to make it smell clean and inviting. With five cats and a dog I always worry about my home smelling like pets (it doesn’t – our neighbors have confirmed that). I also like to scent my home because I am a firm believer that scents can really effect your over all mood.
I also really enjoy fragrances. I like wearing perfume. I don’t really have a signature scent. I change my perfume depending on my mood and the occasion. If I’m just going to work I like to wear something light and airy (I work with kids so I don’t need to be overly done up). If I’m going out with my husband on a date night I like to smell sexy. If I am attending a meeting or blogger event I want a scent that make me feel strong and confident.
Not long ago I was sent some perfumes from a brand called DefineMe. DefineMe has several unique fragrances. Each of the five fragrances in the collection is named after a different woman. The scent exemplifies their unique personality traits.
Audrey – Is empowered by love and believes it is always the answer.
Notes: Jasmine, peony, rose and sandalwood.
Clara – Attracts abundance by being grateful for the good in her life.
Notes: Lilac, violet, hibiscus, lily and musk.
Harper – Walks through life fearlessly blazing her own path.
Notes: Grapefruit, bergamot, honeysuckle and amber. This fragrance can be worn by both men and women.
Payton – Exemplifies strength and passion by living her dreams to the fullest.
Notes: Orange blossom, peach, clove buds and musk. This fragrance can be worn by both women and men.
Sofia Isabelle – Is a free spirit who embraces life with confidence and grace.
Notes: Mandarin, black currant, jasmine and sugar.
I was super excited to try out these scents. I was especially looking forward to trying out the scent Clara because it has Lilac in it and I LOVE Lilac (it’s my favorite flower). This scent doesn’t disappoint. It’s light and airy with a beautiful floral scent. It reminds me of spring when the flowers are in full bloom. It’s a perfect “anywhere” scent that makes me feel happy and playful.
I honestly thought I would wear Clara all the time, but then I got hooked on the other scents too.
With Audrey you can really smell the sandalwood and jasmine. It’s a more sophisticated scent. This scent makes me feel confident. It’s something I would wear to a business meeting or something along those lines.
Harper, to me, has an exotic, intoxicating scent. I can’t pinpoint what the scent reminds me of or what “notes” I smell the most. It’s a sexy scent. It can be worn by both men and women. I agree with that. It’s unisex scent. If you asked me if it was a female’s perfume or a man’s cologne I couldn’t tell you which it would be. This scent seems to change the most as you wear it.
I think Sophia Isabelle is a very fun fragrance. When I smell it I have visions of attending an amusement park with my cousins when we were little and all the great times we had camping. It evokes a sense of nostalgia in me. It brings me back to my youth.
Payton reminds me of the beach which is really odd because none of the notes would be beach related. It makes me think of sailboats and beach bonfires. How odd is that how a fragrance can evoke images in your mind’s eye, even if the scent has nothing to do with them.
Payton is also a unisex fragrance. It’s very light but could work well with either a man or a woman.
There is something very unique about DefineMe fragrances which you can’t do with other fragrances – you an layer them. You can mix and match any of these fragrances and wear them together to create a whole new scent. In fact the DefineMe website lists two of their favorite fragrance blends.
Almost every day I try out a different combination of the fragrances. I have all five scents so I mix and match them all. Some days it’s just two scents, other times it’s 3 or even 4. It’s fun to see what combinations I can come up with. I have come up with several really nice scent “recipes.” Sadly I never think to write these things down so I can’t recreate them again. But that is OK. It’s fun to try a different one each day. Since all the fragrances work well together you don’t have to worry about combining any that might stink together.
*Fragrance Tip: Don’t rub your wrists together because it takes the top notes off and leaves the base notes! Just dab the fragrance on an let it dry for a second or two.
I love them! They are my #1 go to fragrance every day.
Here are a few more interesting tidbits about DefineMe’s fragrance oils;
- They are blended with fractionated coconut oil, not Dipropylene Glycol (a chemical additive). The coconut oil is naturally sourced & vegan.
- The fragrances have a roller ball for easy application.
- DefineMe fragrances last 3 times longer than most fragrances (I agree – they do last a long time).
- All of the scents are blendable with the other scents.
- The fragrances are made in the U.S.A.
Each fragrance retails for $36 which is a decent price considering other perfumes/fragrances are in the $50+ range.
You can also purchase a sampler kit of all five fragrances in small vials for $15. I think that is a wonderful way to try them all out, blend them and see if you can create your own signature scent.
