Throwback Thursday: So…? Fragrances + 90s Makeup Look

One fragrance brand that introduced me to perfumes as a teen was So…? fragrances. When I was given the opportunity to receive a sample to feature on my blog, I thought it was a great excuse for some tween/teen nostalgia and to put together a 90s makeup look.

90s Makeup look

So…? 30ml and a Tattoo choker from Kmart

The sample that I received was the original *So…? fragrance. While I have tried it, it has been over 10 years quite a while since I’ve purchased/worn it

I was surprised to hear that the So…? fragrances were still available after all this time, you can check out the range here.

*So…?
Top notes: Tangerine and Orange Flower
Middle notes: Jasmine, Ylang Ylang and Rose
Base notes: Amber, Sandalwood and Vanilla

The scent takes me back to when I was a tween/teen starting high school…other things that remind me of high school are tattoo chokers (pictured above), brown toned lipsticks, troll dolls and singlet dresses worn over a white t-shirt. Some 90s trends are making a comeback and I love that the current generation of teens can appreciate some of the ’90s kids’ trends…Kinda sad you can’t buy the original troll dolls any more!

Ps. Have you tried any of the So…? fragrances? If so, which one was your favourite? If you like sweet/floral perfumes (like me) I recommend trying So..? or So…? Kiss Me
