When I started dating my husband, which was a long time ago, he gave me a bottle of Anais Anais for our first Christmas together. I still connote that smell with love, and I actually still like the smell of it; it’s a very pretty, floral green. But I also will say love smells like rose. Every woman loves the smell of rose. I was taught by some of the best perfumers in the world in Grasse [France], and I was always taught that you always put a touch of rose in there, because it reminds you of getting that bouquet, it reminds you of those special occasions.
