Le parfum du souvenir

I am a double scent girl -- annick goutal's l'eau de hadrien with jo malone's grapefruit. It hardly ever changes, citrus and clean is my thing.

However, the smell of the park hyatt vendome is one that I cannot get out of my mind. In a way, I resent the reality that the world comes in white tea, kiwi, vanilla and sandalwood scents. I abhor the use of dryer sheets and scented laundry detergent that assault us on dog walks. However, the signature scent at the PHV always makes me crazy in a good way. It is musky and deluxe, which really makes no sense unless you are exposed to it. When I am feeling down, I use the shampoo to remind myself of good times in Paris.

Better than a plastic eiffel tower.

Jo Malone Grapefruit is MY favorite scent! How did you know?

By the way, please buy it there, not here. The US formula is different and contains eugenol & other chemicals that are banned in the EU.

can you analyze the scent you love from the hotel?
it's a wonderful thing that memories are triggered by scent--proof of the divinity of us
