I actually shouldn’t say I never wear scents when I’m off duty. I do, not often, but sometimes, so I’ll answer the question by listing some of my scents on my shelf in front of me: Terre d’Hermès, Vetyverio Diptyque, French Lime Blossom Jo Malone, Menthe Fraiche James Heeley, 2 (women) Comme des Garcons, Un Jardin sur le Nil Hermès, Oud Wood Tom Ford. Actually there are more than a dozen others. Not to sound too whatever, but they’re like dreams in bottles.
