Hello there gorgeous ladies,

The beauty of being strong women stays in the fact that we can think strategically and strive to motivate ourselves, but also we’re preoccupied with our beauty rituals. I see a powerful woman as a force able to be herself and look her best at all times. How to choose the right perfume has been a topic that I’ve always wanted to share with you because I’m basically obsessed with smelling good and got to know quite a bit about these wonderful products over the years. I feel that February 2020 is the perfect time to invest in a new fragrance to last you over the colder months of the year, don’t you?

Watching the rain dripping on the cafe’s window in June, makes me feel a little bit nostalgic (not that it’s hard for me to get into that mood anyway). Sometimes, I really need to find inspiration in things that surround me in order for me to feel positive, driven, even motivated. Scent does it for me very well. Besides the empowerment ‘power’ perfume gives me, it sets me in a different mood or scenario. Sensual, delicate and (dare to say) feminine, this perfume reveals two sides of me.

The Powerful Me

I’m one of those coffee lovers who love drinking coffee for hours (the same one until it goes cold to the point that it’s undrinkable), so I really need something to distract me from not spending my time wisely. Some days, applying make-up makes me feel more ‘put together’ & ready for action, but other days perfume helps me focus and find my inner strength to get on with it. I’m known for loving strong scents such as oud, bergamot, amber and many interesting others.

Somehow, Aura grew on me over the years. I first smelled it when it launched in an airport; I don’t usually like new scents because most brands want to play it safe lately: same sweet usual scent. With Aura, it was the opposite: love from the first smell. When I first get a perfume, I like to try it out with different outfits, some are made for elegant outfits, some are made for casual ones and some are for both. I believe it’s how you ultimately wear them that makes the real difference. This look says power, ready to be the queen of my own kingdom. The feminine scent really gives me that inner power to come up with a to do list and ace the V marks by the end of the day.

The Elegant Me

Worn in a different circumstance, Aura makes me feel elegant and sexy. I believe you know by now that my name ‘notagirlygal’ does stand for femininity and seductive power, but from the perspective of a powerful woman, not from a ‘sweet angel’ perspective. I need a strong perfume to express myself and feel that the scent can keep up with me. Worn with this beautiful dress, the perfume is the only element that complements the outfit. Dare to wear it!

Hello my favourite girls,

Are you ready for dipping into a heavenly scented article? Tell me about it! I’ve always treasured strong liqueurs bottled in beautifully shaped containers. Perfumes are my thing: I recognise particular ones by their scent and feel different types of fragrance notes. Me and my dear friend Bee, call ourselves: the noses.

Today’s star? The seductive and warm Dolce & Gabbana The One! It makes me feel powerful and glam – I believe this is all about when you’re wearing a scent. You want it to have a meaning to you and maybe become your next signature. I perfectly captured how it makes me feel in the below video: unapologetically me.

Dolce & Gabbana The One Notes

The main notes of this fragrance are vanilla, peach, bergamot, mandarine orange and lily. You might suppose it’s a rather sweet scent as it’s quite floral, but it’s not syrup sweet. It’s rather elegant and mysterious and I believe it belongs to the Chypre fragrance family as it has citrus as top notes and a mossy base. This exquisite and strong scent makes me think of a successful woman who succeeds in life and nothing can stop her. Just try it out and you will feel you have to add it to your collection. 

Tip: Order yours on Notino – they usually run lots of promotions and I find their prices better than buying in store! The delivery is super fast as well. They’re my latest discovery for beauty products 🙂

A scent is something we all perceive differently, but for me, The One is simply the scent of a girl boss.  What are your favourite fragrances? I would absolutely love to find out in the comment section below 💋
