Signature Scents: Do You Have One?

I've made a huge deal out of telling everyone that my signature scent is Tom Ford Black Orchid, and that isn't a lie. There are a great number of people out there who will instantly think of me when they smell that particular scent. Especially boys. But that is a post for another time, and perhaps another blog.

What I haven't told many people, in fact, I can only think of two off the top of my head, is that one of the fragrances that I adore and get the most comments on is Tiptoeing Through the Chambers of the Moon by Pilar and Lucy. It's my secret weapon.

I wish I could describe it, but I can't. I've tried a million times and it just doesn't come out right. It's such a bombshell, retro-fabulous, witchy fragrance that I don't even try anymore. I'll just let do the talking for me:
Smoldering amber and seductive tuberose come together in this enigmatic and soulful elixir. This is the olfactory calling card for the girl who knows her equinoxes and solstices, can point out every constellation in the night sky, and just might have a pack of tarot cards in her purse – but you won’t catch her in muddy sandals. She’s far too glamorous for that. Much like the woman who wears it, Tiptoeing Through Chambers Of The Moon keeps complex secrets, and only reveals enough to keep ‘em guessing. Mysterious, alluring and ethereal…spinning a warm and sexy web that one can’t help but get caught in.

Some people love it, some hate it, but everyone comments.

So, what is your secret weapon?
