The question I’m asked more than any other question (with the exception of What ARE you?, but that’s another story for another time…) is What perfume are you wearing?
The answer is Maison Louis Marie No. 4 Bois de Balincourt oil, which has become my signature scent after searching for it for nearly 40 years. It also comes in a perfume spray and a candle, but I prefer the oil. It’s a very interesting, almost difficult to explain but impossible to get out of your head scent. It’s warm and amber-y, which I love, and also has a sweetness to it from the cinnamon and nutmeg notes. I put the oil on once a day, if that, because it is long lasting and changes throughout the day as my skin warms up. I truly am obsessed with it, and I appreciate every time I receive a compliment on the scent, and it makes me so happy that I don’t want to horde it – I want everyone to try it out. You can layer it with their other scents or wear it on your own, which is what I do.
