Ask a social celeb and she would be gung ho about few things in life that are a must-must. And the answers could be anyone’s guess – diamonds, limousines, SUVs, LBDs and perfumes. What requires a lot of time and effort on the part of the perfume however is to decide on the fragrance that would be the right pick for the social dos. Needless to say, the scent that you choose has to match with your dress code and figure too. After all, social etiquettes demand the right accessories too (read perfumes) so that you keep getting noticed.
Perfumes have come to be getting personalised too. A case in point is the celebrities who have launched their own labels of perfumes such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez so as to bring about distinction, novelty and individual standing in the corridors of power. Ever heard of Imperial Majesty perfume by Clive Christian that is decorated with a phenomenal five carats diamond and to top it all a stunning 18-carat gold collar.
Whatever be the reason, let us go through the privileged gallery of luxury scents that would woo that tall, dark and handsome tuxedoed young man you have the hots for.
