This Is What Kind Of Gal She Is, Based On The Perfume She Wears

La Vie Est Belle

She misses her childhood and how much simpler everything was. Her playlist does not contain anything from the last decade and she refuses to enter a discussion about Julia Roberts’ more recent movies.

Mon Paris

“I am delicious!”

Coco Mademoiselle

“I am delicious, but don’t fuck with me, or I will end you!”


Nothing this sweet-smelling is all that it seems. Beneath the confectionery exterior lies a soul as deep and as unfathomable as the Mariana Trench.


It’s the first perfume she ever received and she can’t find anything else she likes.

Anais Anais

She has a fondness for baby animals and an appreciation of the fact that good things don’t always come with a high price tag. Most likely to suggest a hike as a date location.

Black Opium

“Ugh, why do we even bother!” she mutters around her cigarette. Her blazer is gaping open and you’re not sure she’s wearing a bra underneath.

Terre d’Hermès

It was the only thing about her ex-boyfriend she liked, so she appropriated it for herself. Careful what arguments you pick with her.

Anything from Lush

She cares about animal rights and fair trade. She also has a remarkable tolerance threshold.


She cares about animal rights more than she does about human rights. Don’t order a steak in front of her.

Doesn’t wear perfume

She’s allergic, she’s a doctor, or she literally can’t be bothered.

Doesn’t wear perfume and doesn’t seem to notice her own B.O.

She’s the sort of woman that receives concern trolling abuse all day every day. Don’t be surprised if she bites your head off if you ask too many personal questions.

Anything from Aerin

She cares more about how something looks than its actual substance.

Anything from by Killian

Knows what “resell value” means and will tell you all about “buying for investment.” Owns, or will own, a vintage Chanel bag.

Rose Silence

She just bloody wants to do her job!

Do Son (or other Tuberose smells)

People are drawn to her and feel like they can tell her anything. She is also very, very, very reluctant to sit around and listen to your problems when you just met. At least buy her a glass of wine before you dump on her.


Her mother, grandmother, and assorted aunties have opinions about her “choices.” Her clothes don’t wear her. Her magnetism and personality bend people to her will.

Even if she wishes, sometimes, that it wasn’t so difficult to keep friends. Really, people seem to take her opinions a little too much to heart…. TC mark

"Oh, no, what have I done," is the story of my life.

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
