Discover your scent with Danny Ventura

Thanks to Beauty Belle I had the privileged of meeting the amazing international perfume expert Danny Ventura. Danny has worked with Issey Miyake, Elie Saab, Narciso Rodriguez and many more to create the beautiful designer fragrances. I can't even explain to you how excited I was to meet him. I was a little star struck when I did. He is so suave and cool. 


I have always struggled to find and purchase perfumes that really represent me. When you go perfume shopping it is very easy to feel over whelmed by all the different scents and beautiful bottle shapes. There are so many scents to choose from it can become a daunting task finding the perfect scent. Sometimes perfumes smell amazing in the bottle but once it hits your skin it smells awful. Thanks to Danny Ventura he has created personality tests to discover scents that suits your unique style, personality and are perfect for your body chemistry.



At the workshop I was required to fill out a multiple choice questionnaire about my personality. Once that was done I sat down and had a one on one consultation with Danny Ventura. He tallied up my scores and chose three scents that represented my personality. He sprayed each individual scent on a tester card and told me to give a colour that describes or represents the scents to me. I chose three colours, orange, red and purple. He then placed the three scents together and told me to describe a place of where I feel I am when I smell the scents. I told him I felt like I was in a beautiful sunny garden with lots of colourful flowers, balloons on a warm fun day. To my surprise those three scents made up a perfume that perfectly suits me: Elie Saab Eau De Toilette!




Danny was so spot on with my personality fragrance I was completely in awe! He told me that I should stay away from overbearing floral scents and that I liked a burst of fragrance that fizzles out during the day. So me! The scent that most suited me was Elie Saab Eau De Toilette made up of white floral and honey notes. I was in perfume heaven when I sprayed it on. It is soft, sweet and citrus all at the same time. At the end Danny gifted me with the new Issey Miyake fragrance called Absolue. Gosh, this perfume is so beautiful indeed. Like liquid gold in a perfume bottle! It was so much fun and very eye opening to meet Danny Ventura. It is great to know what I should look out for when I go perfume shopping again. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget.
