these are my favorite fragrances at the very moment and I rather leave the house without makeup than without fragrance : ) yes, I am an absolute scent person and I love to have a variety of different perfumes that fit my moods. as you can see the scents are very different, some are rather sweet and some are very fresh or herbal. my favorites are also perfumes that I can wear all year around despite the different scents. in my case I have special fragrances that I only wear in winter (GUCCI GUILTY) and some that I only wear in summer (JIL SANDER SUN, BRONZE GODDESS etc). not all of my favorite scents are for women only, the LOEWE 7 is for men : ) and the JO MALONE is unisex.
one of my favorite books regarding fashion and style is the one above in the photo. and it shows many nice key pieces for the perfect style. this very morning I was browsing thru this book and it made me think about these pieces: my beloved VALENTINO sandals – the lovely rose lipstick by ESTÉE LAUDER – the sweet scent LOVESTORY by CHLOÉ and golden hoops.
now I wanna answer some fashion questions:
#1 what are key pieces?
these are clothes that can be worn in many different ways and always remain timeless. a good navy or black blazer – a nice white blouse – a skinny jeans – black or brown chelsea boots – a beige trench coat – white sneakers – black flats etc.
#2 are there any no-go in fashion?
hmm, thats a tough question as for me almost everything goes and hardly anything is impossible. personally I dont like to mix black and brown and navy and black – but thats just me 🙂 but on the other hand I love to mix and match with colors and patterns. back in the days it was also not so cool to mix red and pink but thats also something that works perfectly for me. another thing I wanna share is that when I am wearing a short skirt I am always wearing a rather simple top with it and when I wear a nice cleavage shirt I try not to wear it with shorts but with a nice pants instead.
#3 whats my go-to look for a business day?
atm this would be a pencil skirt with a cashmere sweater, ankle boots and an oversized coat. in case you need inspiration check my outfits from 2011 2012 2013 and 2014 or check my polyvore page.

I love it and I feel loved! such a fresh romantic scent – ready to seduce fall!
so what is LOVE STORY?
“a night in paris. sparkling lights and music. a crowd. and her. the night is hers he sees her immediately. eyes meet. he’s fascinated. her femininity, her natural elegance. an allure touched by freedom and grace. she is clémence poésy. luminous under the lens of mélanie laurent. love story is a modern story of seduction. her. and him. their paths cross, a few mumbled words, a beautiful moment. essence of seduction in the hollow of her neck, a charm. the freshness of neroli illuminates her, amongst others. he sees only her. the sensuality of orange blossom attracts him, powerfully. the stirring femininity of jasmine stephanotis, the flower of happiness, makes her more irresistible than ever. on her skin, cedar vibrates with flair. a floral love story, fresh and sexy. an unforgettable essence of seduction. they are together, more alive than ever. the city is theirs. the night too. he takes her by the hand. the sound of her heels on the pavement. their laughter echoing against the walls. stolen fragments of their love story. as a symbol of their affection, a padlock. her fragrance. he tries to grab it but it is hers. a precious jewel crowned with cold metal, magnified by the iconic pleated glass. the casual femininity of a ribbon knotted nonchalantly on its side. it says it all about her . it signs the modern and refined chloé attitude. first light of day a barge moored under the pont des arts. his place. as he opens the door, she disappears. because above all she is free! she loves life, love… will she be back? her fragrance floats in the air. the scent of a love story. love story is the expression of a free woman. the chloé woman. clare waight keller, clémence poesy, mélanie laurent, inez van lamsweerde, anne flipo … each brought her vision to tell this new story. a declaration of femininity. a proclamation of freedom.”
These are one of my all time favourites and I am sad to tell you that they are all empty. For sure I will re-purchase them as soon as possible.
