Jaki is not only our dedicated, inspiring and super hard-working team leader, she also has a passion for perfumes, with an incredible amount of knowledge crammed into that brain of hers.
With Valentine's Day round the corner, Jaki shares with us her current favourite scents for women.
Asking me to select my favourite fragrances is like asking me to choose my favourite son - I just can't do it!
As much as I love fragrances in general, I do have my go-to fragrances, chosen according to my mood, my outfit and colours.
I love that fragrance evokes emotions that are open to interpretation and these can be different for everyone.
Scents can take to you faraway places, both emotionally and physically.
Some are safe, some are polarising, some remind us of other fragrances, and some totally unique and haunting.
When choosing a fragrance, my advice is to drink in the notes of the ingredients.
Visualise. Dream. Envelop yourself in the fragrance and the story and mood behind their creation.
Once upon a time, fragrance was a real luxury item, but now there are fragrances to suit every budget. Everyone can enjoy them, wear them liberally and build a wardrobe of fragrances for every occasion, emotion or dream.
Why not treat yourself and add in just one or two unique perfumes to complete your outfit for those times you want to feel special?
I've included ten of my current favourite perfumes for women, although I'm sure if you ask me again in six months, the list will change.
And if you have any questions about fragrances for women or men, or any of our other Kiana Beauty products, I would love to help. Just contact me here or send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

How do you say thank you on Mother's Day? Someone who carried you for nine months, gave birth to you, fed you, read you bedtime stories, wiped your nose when it dripped and gave you endless cuddles and kisses. Now that we are mums ourselves, we have a new appreciation for mums (and dads!) and all that they do.
Fragrances are more than just a scent. They allow you to enter a world of dreams, evoke beautiful memories, or transport you back to a wonderful experience. Fragrances can enthrall, inspire and reflect your mood.
Our team here at Kiana Beauty Melbourne has compiled a list of our top 10 fragrances for Mother's Day, in no particular order. Every one of our orders, whether ordered for Mother's Day or not, comes beautifully giftwrapped in our signature paper.
