This weekend I picked up Elizabeth & James’ first scent (LOVE!) and it got me thinking: I rotate between only a few signature scents. Depending on the time of year I may throw in a seasonal scent, but really, I have my go-to ol’ reliables that work it for me, day or night…

Chloé Roses de Chloé / Chanel Coco Mademoiselle / Elizabeth & James Nirvana White / Gucci Guilty / Stella McCartney Stella

Of course I love the bottles as they are so pretty for display, but I’ve recently been purchasing the rollerballs to keep in my purse or clutch. Super handy!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. LOVE the packaging for these products, especially E&J and Stella. Every couple of years I would pick a signature scent and roll with it. It used to be Lacoste Sport, then Burberry Brit, then I switched to Nina Ricci’s L’Elixir. I bought Banana Republic’s Jade, which I do like! But going from Nina Ricci’s light, fruity scent to BR’s musky overtones has been an adjustment. I guess I’m just not wearing much perfume these days!
