What was your first “signature scent’? Do you still wear it?
G's answer: The first perfume that I can really recall being a signature scent was Anais Anais by Cacharel, which I wore constantly in junior high (fun fact: Anais Anais was actually Cacharel's first fragrance and it debuted in 1978). I wore it every day for a long period of time and then I completely burned myself out on it (if I remember correctly, I moved on to Giorgio Beverly Hills or Liz Claiborne in the yellow triangle bottle, if anyone remembers those!). But it was only until very recently that could I come to truly appreciate Anais Anais again. In fact, I purchased a bottle several months ago when I saw it at Ross, and I fell back in love with it all over again! I'd say I wear it probably once every two weeks now. PS: I've heard people say that Cacharel reformulated Anais Anais and that it doesn't smell like the original anymore, but I swear that the new bottle I purchased at Ross smells exactly how I remember it.
