Fragrances and scents play a huge role in my life as they may in alot of womens lives , like Coco Chanel said “ A woman who does not wear perfume has no future” ( That quote alone, sparked a fragrance switch in me a few years ago and lets just say that was the start of my little fragrance collection). Its safe to say if Coco’s quote is anything to go by my future is secured lol.
So with that said I will be adding some fragrance reviews to the blog , some old favorites and some new additions to the collection. The first fragrance I will be reviewing is The Girl by Tommy Hilfiger of which Gigi Hadid is the face and muse of the fragrance. If you are like me you would have noticed that THE GIRL has an identical bottle (in bottle style) to the original TOMMY GIRL which was launched 20years ago.(This was actually my weekend fragrance for a while back in 2010 if im not mistaken, Still have half a bottle full), THE GIRL bottle got a slight update with the addition of a bold red anchor, that easily sets it apart from the original fragrance but also symbolizes Gigi’s free spirited nature, confident style and infectious personality which Tommy Hilfiger has managed to encapsulate in a bottle and give us THE GIRL.
What I love the most about this Eau de Toilette fragrance is that after applying it you are somehow transported to a sunny day by the seacoast until you open your eyes and realize you are still in your room, and you were just in a fragrance trance by the beautiful notes in the fragrance. I can easily see why Gigi was the perfect pairing to this lively and fresh scent. I’m not sure what my December plans are but if I am not going anywhere I will surely be wearing this fragrance for those free coastal trips.
