What Are Perfume Oils? Signature Scents? Featuring The Body Shop Perfume Oil in Indian Night Jasmine

I am forever on a quest to find my signature fragrance. Glossy fashion magazines, pop culture websites and even celebrity interviews are forever harping on how important it is to find your signature scent and stick with it...

While yes I do agree on how 'classy' and 'grown-up' all of it sounds, I am however a self-proclaimed free-spirit and tying myself down to a particular fragrance sounds like a life sentence to me... Ok probably not as bad but it is extremely difficult for me stick to one thing and not get tempted to "stray", if you know what I mean :P

However, Indian Night Jasmine by The Body Shop is one fragrance that I am drawn to time and again and hence its a staple on my fragrance tray. I use it more often than I do others and it kind of holds a special place in my heart :) I had started out with Indian Night Jasmine in the form of body lotion and when I really loved the fragrance I bought the body mist, 3 bottles one after another and then I graduated to Perfume Oils (on my 3rd vial currently)...

What Are Perfume Oils Anyway?

Perfume Oils are exactly what they are called. They are perfumes in oil form. They are perfumed or fragrance oils that ideally have zero or no alcohol content. They are more concentrated forms of perfume sprays or body mists and are great way to ensure that the fragrance on you last longer than it would with a fragrance spray.
Perfume oils are the basis of all fragrance spray forms.

Why Should I Use Perfume Oils?

Even though it is in the end a matter of personal preference, I thought it prudent to list down the factors that make Perfume Oils my preferred mode of using a fragrance. Here goes...
  1. They stay longer on you. Since they are more concentrated and do not contain any alcohol, they tend to 'stick' to where they've been applied.
  2. They are not overpowering as some perfumes are. You know the kinds that tell people that you are about to enter the room even though you are probably a mile away? Yeah that's overpowering and perfume oils save you from that embarrassment... Since they mingle with your skin, it emanates a subtle and an understated personal fragrance when some leans in to whisper something in your ear or when you meet a long lost friend with a warm hug...
  3. They need not only be applied on the skin. I mean yes fragrances are to be applied to pulse points on your body but my favorite way to use a perfume oil is in the strands of my hair. hair holds on to scents much longer and keeps it truer to its original smell.
  4. I also use perfume oils as bath oils... A few drops in a hot bucket of water is my perfect way to relax. It is therapeutic as well as forms the base to the technique of fragrance layering.

Coming back to The Body Shop Perfume Oil in Indian Night Jasmine, the fragrance is mild and warm. It is surprisingly not very floral too. Its mysterious and sensual and reminds me of warm sultry nights on the banks of a lotus pond where I am wearing something light and flowy and my hair is being lightly caressed by a warm fragrant breeze... That is exactly how I would describe the fragrance :)

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
