If you ask me, the beauty of fragrances isn't something that everyone can appreciate. When I went out to buy my first perfume, I was being tempted solely by glamourous ads and pretty bottles. I had no clue what exactly it was that I wanted and I had trouble telling the difference scents apart. Though I cannot consider myself to be anywhere near an expert, I have gained a greater appreciation for fragrances since then.

My perfume essential
Without doubt, my perfume essential would have to be Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. It was the third perfume I've ever tried and I've been in love with it since. I've tried a few others in the meantime, Yves Saint Laurent's Parisienne being another one of my favourites. But no matter what it is that I'm trying out, I always have a bottle of Coco Mademoiselle on my desk. What are your essentials?

For many blue chip high fashion brands, clothing lines are not the main source of profit. It's often accessories and cosmetics lines that bring in far more money. An important composite of these sales are fragrances. Fragrances tend to be more affordable and wearable for the average person. For the average consumer, they can be a link to the ultra-exclusive high fashion world.

I think it's worth mentioning that Brad Pitt has recently been announced as the new face of Chanel No. 5. Thoughts on a man advertising a fragrance for women? I'm personally uncertain about how it is that he will promote the perfume and I don't think Brad Pitt fits Chanel No. 5 quite as well Audrey Tautou. Of course, I'm still interested to see what they'll whip out. Perhaps a new commercial with a romantic theme? Perfume commercials can be really interesting sometimes. Dior has made some of my favourite commercials but I'm not sure what to think of all of them. Should I call this one fierce or pure craaazy?:
