This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Men’s Favorite Fragrance for Women

April, 15, 2014

I’m talking about Laila, the scent created by Geir Ness, Norway’s perfume genius. Laila was #1 in a test of which scents men found most attractive on women! It’s sold today because some powerful men asked for it.

Geir spent almost five years creating Laila and named it after his mother. He secretly imprinted a copy of her signature on the bottle, and surprised her with it for Mother’s Day. After hearing his story, I couldn’t resist having him sign a bottle for me.


I really enjoyed meeting Geir. He’s as charismatic in person as in the media.

The picture on top was taken by my dad. He doesn’t know it yet, but I’m planning on roping him into more picture taking:)
