PICKING that just-right perfume for that certain occasion is something of a nightmare sometimes, so for when it gets a bit too much and you’ve got a hundred swatches in hand, don’t fear, Pillow is here!
Whether it’s a friend’s wedding, that job interview, that first date or work do, there’s always a great smell for the occasion.
We’ll start with this scenario; you’ve met the ‘in-laws’ (the tricky part) yet the ask you and your partner out for a posh family lunch. Don’t worry, you’ve got this.
Fendi’s Fan De Fendi Extreme perfume is perfect and it lasts all day, the eau du parfum smells incredible, grown up yet not musky, not over-powering but a hint that will stay all day, something that will please the parents but not put off your man.
It oozes elegance, with distinct vanillary scent, it contains Yellow Jasmine extracts and Tangerine from Calabria so there’s also a fruity undertone without being too girly.
Marc Jacobs Daisy is perfect for that all important job interview, it’s floral fragrance is relaxed enough for day wear and it’s sweet aroma will have those interviewers perking up in no time – and because it’s Marc Jacobs, you’ll know it also has the perfect amount of sophistication and no silly girly-ness about it!
Featuring wild strawberry and ruby-red grapefruit, try the Eau Du Parfum for a more concentrated and deeper fragrance that won’t run anywhere even if you might want to!
That wedding; the one where you’re a bridesmaid, or best friend or even just a well-known guest, the one where you turn up alone – that one. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle will be your saviour, if only because you can get a specific purse twist-and-spray edition!
But in all seriousness, this perfume will give you an air of luxury like no other. It’s seductive scent will leave you fighting off men at the bar for a glass of champagne yet it’s sweetness will have all your friends asking who smells so incredible and what you’re wearing.
Is that dreaded work do coming up? Where your boss will inevitably get a bit too drunk and all you’ll end up doing is eating a bit too much and fighting off drunken colleagues.
Ghost Sweetheart is sensual enough to be an evening fragrance; boasting rose petals, lilies and jasmine – yet is fresh enough to not become a Lynx advert with men running miles to find you with its fresh lemon and spearmint hints.
These frangrances will have men jumping over hoops to buy you a drink, bosses offering you jobs left right and centre and in-laws loving you before they even know your name!
And when in doubt, our theory is always wear a light floral rather than a deep musk – light and breezy is always the way to go if ever in a scent emergency!
