What’s your signature scent? I’d love to know! 


P.S. Eau de Parfum is a stronger concentration of the fragrance and has more staying power than Eau de Toilette. Expect a bottle of Eau de Parfum to be more expensive but also last much longer (both on the skin and in the bottle) than Eau de Toilette.
