ScEnt*

The always charming Mr Peacock posted 'fragrance theme' here and
I was inspired... Went to my dear mother's boudoir and
click-click-click some photos of her collection...
~take a look:
.. ...she is a collectORRR...
.
Personally I'm not big on fragrances...
But I have my own signature fragrance that I repeatedly

purchase & love for the past few years...it's my
'mood enhancer'; Amazing Grace by Philosophy.
Amazzzingly clean & fresh scent...
"...you smell so good!" instead of
" what perfume are you wearing?!"
Ohhh YESsss...I like that very much!
[...such a sucker for nice compliments~hee*]
Anyway, time for the usual eye candy:
.
Showed this new Ads to my dear Mom the other day...
She commented,
" errr... this model is showing off his armpit hair!
It's sexy...your dad is lacking in that department,
he is a Sahara Desert you know..." (MY-MY-MY!!!errr???)
Of course I replied,
"...so you prefer the thick Amazon Jungle instead of the desert scenery?!
alright, alright I get it already Mom! Mother-mother-mother...with comments like that, no wonder you have NEVER been invited to the White House formal dinner party!!!"~whahhh...
.
'Does sex really sell???'
Mom said," So is this men's or women's fragrance?
Oh dear...I don't have them yet..."
~I rest my case !!!
.
" What's your favorite* signature fragrance ???
tell me - tell me..." ~XOXO*

It's official. I love your mom :)

LouDuk said...

Hell yeah, sex sells.

Sher said...

Your Mom is too cute!

My signature scents are:
Chanel #5 in the fall winter.
Hypnose - summer
Bath and body works Sea Island Cotton. (but have been told I smell like fabric softener :[ )

Michael Rivers said...

Love the photos of the bottles. Very artistic!

When I worked for QVC we sold Amazing Grace by the truck loads. I love that shower gel scent. A guy can use it with no problem. I've worn their Pure Grace. Very clean scent.

My signature scent is Gio Armani. I've worn it for 9-10 years. And it never stops working its magic!

poet said...

Teehee. I have 4 or 5 perfumes, and that's it. But this is an admirable collection! :)

Greetings,
poet

josie(bean) said...

haha, your mom is waaay adorable!!

i like almost all the burberry scents. i use burberry brit sheer for the summer (it's light and refreshing, however it doesnt last long at all which is annoying) and then burberry the beat for fall (since it is a bit stronger).

amy @ switz~art said...

your mama sounds delightful! i cannot believe her collection!

my scent: stella mccartney sheer...loooove it!

in response to sher's comment above...sea island cotton does rock!

Kay said...

Aqua di Roma....same compliments, you smell good, just what I wanted! :) Your mother sounds delightfully entertaining, hence why she has such a delightfully entertaining daughter, I am sure of it!

Lianne said...

I also am not a big fan of scents, but when I do put something on it is also Philosophy, but it's Love. I haven't tried Grace, but will be hitting Sephora this weekend and will have a wee sniff.

Your mom's collection is spectacular.

Sal said...

Wow, that is an AMAZING collection of perfumes! I dab on a little of Aveda's #1 blend sometimes, but don't really have a signature scent.

Simply Colette said...

Too funny about your mom's conversation! Thanks for stopping by :)

have a good day!

Yelena R. said...

Wow your mom is too cool! I wish I had a collection like that!

I'm always looking for new scents so maybe I will have to check out your favorite :)

janettaylor said...

Parfumes are my best friends! Hehe! :-)

X★X★

Couture Carrie said...

That is quite a collection! My signature scent is Hanae Mori...

Love those D&G ads!

Clorivak said...

I'm not big on scents at all...I like essential oils and fruity or citrusy smells. But regular perfume makes me sneeze and gag and gives me headaches..it smells so chemical. I like natural scents.

Those photos are superb! she has TONS. holy moly.

That's funny what your mom said...I prefer a hairy pit myself..hehe..on my man.

And yes, I do believe sex sells...not really to me though, but prob to the average person...dunno. it must since sexy ads are everywhere.

LamiatS said...

I so agree with you, I much prefer a scent that doesnt smell like a chemical bottled up in a designer vessel. Oh and sex definitely sells ;]

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Your Mom has got to be a hoot! She's got a point though...do naked bodies sell perfume? I'm thinking phermones here ;-) I'm not a big scent wearer either but if I do wear one, it is anything from dyptique.

Gabby said...

Your mother seems like such a character, I love it!

I think I'm more like her though...I have a ton of perfume. I can't pick just one!

Winnie said...

Wow your mom is amazing! I only have a few bottles but I really love Lanvin's Jeanne which is really fruity and sweet but unfortunately it doesn't last for very long.

Anna G said...

No official scent but I do sometimes wear my mom's Chanel Allure or a little bit of Fragonard perfume I got while in France.

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

Same here, I love your mom! What a great mother you have! And omg, what a collection. I am so envious of such a collection. I do not own a lot of perfume, it doesn't last long enough and I hate throwing it out.

Right now I like wearing light blue by Dolce and Gabbana. I like anything with a light, fresh scent. I used to love wearing Peony, Banana Republic stopped carrying it.:(

Back to your mom, she really is FANTASTIC!

Probably won't be back on the computer until the weekend - so have a wonderful rest of the week beautiful lady!

xoxo

Sam said...

Your Mum rocks the house!! Sex puts me off a bit actually in advertising! Am I wierd or what? My fave signature scent (at the moment) is Poison by Dior - the first one in the divine purple bottle. I'm a hopeless perfume bottle collector too!

drollgirl said...

i don't wear perfume. but sometimes people say i smell good and ask what i am wearing. usually this makes me a bit sheepish and i admit it is eau de secret (the deodorant).

The Writing Instinct said...

Now that is SOME collection! What a lady your mum is - love her!

My faves are anything by Gucci or Bvlgari.

Jan said...

Wow your mum really likes perfume!
Whenever I've worn Narciso Rodriguez people have commented (in a good way) but I don't actually like it much myself. Also Lolita Lempicka
Like 'em strong though, (obviously)or what's the point ?

Char said...

I'm allergic so I just grapefruit scented soap only

Gabbi said...

Your mom sounds nice Lenore, and I would have so much fun with that collection!! My newest obsession is Annick Goutal's 'Petite Cherie'... it has the yummiest scent ever.

Sarah said...

Your Mom is adorable!

I'm loving Miss Dior this week :)

Elizabeth Marie said...

Your Mom seems FABULOUS. Just like you.

Amazing Grace is fabulous as well!! ohhhhh I bet you smell deeelish!

Keith said...

Love the pictures of the bottles. The ads were very hot. I don't have a particular scent that I favor. I do think sex sells.

trishiekoh said...

WOW, that's quite a collection! I'm wearing the new chloe parfum these days, absolutely love it.

BTW, I have a little giveaway over at my blog, hope you enter!

pinkapplecore said...

I don't wear perfume my scent is white tea soap.

Jeannette Mariae said...

I don´t have any - but I love the smell of nature, I mean mother nature (smile...)

Love you post ;-)

xphoebelinax said...

i lovee how sweet the chloe one smells, but i guess my signature scent is narciso rodriguez and the green chanel chance :) i adore them! :D

hhelina r . said...

You have a very great blog :)
Continue in the same spirit. I started reading your blog :)

Nora Johnson said...

What a collection! My favorite is Guerlain's Mitsouko - does something for me which is, I suppose, the whole point of scent!!

Lovely post!

xxLOL LOLA:)

Carlene said...

Your mom *is* fabulous...first the collages, now this! I would kill for that enormous bottle of Ysatis.

Bunny, THE PARIS HOUSE said...

Your mom is fabulous!! I like Cherry Blossom by Guerlain combined with Laura Mercier's almond coconut lotion and I also wear this hibiscus perfume I found in hawaii years ago. I want to smell delicious and edible never like perfume.
xoxo

sofiasophie said...

your mom is tip-top! and of course hairy men are sexy....

my fragance since 9-10 years "Gio" (Not acqua di Gio) and nowadays it is difficult to find..... but in summer I don't use any... because I use a lemon-bio deo with non tested in animals (yeeeeees I am one of these..)

Love your post anyway!

Dumbwit Tellher ♥ said...

LENORENEVERMORE said...

~Kissesss*

down and out chic said...

your mom is adorable. i don't have a signature fragrance b/c i don't wear one or any for that matter. i wonder if i smell?!

Diana said...

The one thing about your mom is even if she doesn't have a signature scent, you will remember her for her eccentric collection of amazing perfume bottles! SO cool!

Josephine Tale Peddler said...

I love your Mom's collection! My favourite perfumes tend to be Orientals. Shalimar, Coco are my two besties. I also like essential oils such as geranium and ylang ylang to wear. xx

Ash said...

I love all the perfume bottles! Great pics!

A Life In Focus Photography said...
