Beauty and style editor Meg schools us on se­lect­ing and cre­at­ing scents.

I’m re­luc­tant to ad­mit it, but I’ve be­come one of those in­suf­fer­ably smug peo­ple who have a per­fume wardrobe. YES, it’s such a cringe beauty ed thing to say, but hear me out. I decided to start one when I was pack­ing for my first over­seas trip with my three besties. We started plan­ning this trip in Year 11 and had been work­ing crazy hours to make it hap­pen – so ‘ex­cited’ doesn’t even be­gin to de­scribe the feel­ing that took over when we were get­ting on that plane! Af­ter search­ing for the sun­ni­est-smelling fra­grance out, I found a fresh AF combo of citrus notes and wore it ev­ery day for the two months. Now, ev­ery time I smell it I feel like I’m about to dip into the Mediter­ranean Sea or eat my fifth gelato for the day – ex­actly the kind of mem­o­ries I had hoped it would evoke. I guess the point I’m try­ing to make is that it’s so nice to re­mem­ber spe­cial things – a first date, hol­i­day or spe­cial per­son – in a way that’s com­pletely dif­fer­ent to look­ing at photos on In­sta or mem­o­ries on FB. Chances are you’ve started a fra­grance wardrobe with­out even know­ing it, but putting a lit­tle thought into it is all the more fun, and it doesn’t have to be costly. A new trend I’m lov­ing is us­ing es­sen­tial oils from Price­line to make my own scents. They are su­per easy to mix and help cre­ate a dif­fer­ent mood for ev­ery oc­ca­sion.
