I know what you must be thinking: Isn’t it your job as a beauty editor to share perfume insights and recommendations? Yes, it is, but there’s something a whole lot easier about sharing such things with people I don’t know on a personal level. My biggest fragrance fear, after all, is turning up to an event wearing the same perfume as somebody I know.
This complex that I have with fragrance is a real nuisance, especially considering that my favourite group of perfumes tends to be the one that people copy the most. There’s something about the subtle and comforting nature of musk fragrances that draws people in like magnets. So much so, in fact, that whenever I wear one of my favourite musk scents, I can basically guarantee that someone will copy it.
This is very annoying for me. You see, musk fragrances are by far my most-worn thanks to their clean, subtle, fresh, warm and skin-like nature. In my opinion, it’s impossible not to love a great musk fragrance. They’re so likable that I ran out of lies long ago for when someone asks after my musk perfume. Now, through gritted teeth, I simply have to tell them the truth. And that truth is I’m likely wearing one of the below perfumes.
