Whether it’s a job interview, date, meeting, or party, one way to leave behind an unforgettable impression is through your fragrance. A situation I found myself in a few weeks back will put this into perspective, here’s what happened.
The long-awaited day had finally arrived when myself and two very special friends would meet for dinner. We had not seen each other in close to six months and had finally found a date that suited us all despite our busy schedules. I was the first to arrive at the restaurant that evening and minutes later the ladies followed. The very minute we saw each other we filled the restaurant with laughter, screams and excitement, as we embraced each other with a group hug and kisses.
Now here is where things get interesting.
One friend in particular caught me off guard as I leaned in for a hug, she wore her hair as she usually does in a tightly defined twist out, but this time unlike others her hair smelled somewhat magical. I had never experienced anything like it! If you could bottle the smell of an ocean view whilst laying down on a tropical beach sipping on a mango mojito, then that was exactly it!
The evening continued with laughter, a few more hair sniffing sessions, and as usual in-depth discussions about the future. But I’m sure what you’re more interested in knowing, is whether or not I found out the name of the mystery product that left behind such a lasting impression. You bet I did!
Shea Decadence Mango Sorbet (Shine & Define Styling Balm)
Sound familiar? Well, if you’ve been on the blog long enough you’ll know I already use and love the Shea Decadence Mango Lassi Conditioning Hair Milk, which has the same scent. But the secret according to my friend is to pair the milk and styling balm together for the full fragrant experience, something I had yet to do.
I don’t know about you but I’m pretty big on fragrances, and love that they have the power to change your mood and even the mood of those around you. Having a great body fragrance is one thing, but try amazing smelling hair too, it’ll change your life and have heads turning, trust me!
If that isn’t enough I recently learned that huge fragrance brands such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Viktor & Rolf, Byredo, Valentino, Thierry Mugler etc, have also caught onto the wonder of hair perfumes, and have their very own hair perfume ranges. I just picked up a bottle of the Chanel Chance Eau Vive hair perfume after smelling it last week, and can’t wait to use this alongside my Shea Decadence duo. Next on my list is the Sachajuan Hair Perfume which has some amazing reviews.
If you’ve yet to jump on the sexy smelling hair bandwagon then I invite you to join me. Seriously, once you do there really is no turning back!
