My Favourite Smell – Elaine Butler Doolin

My Favourite Smell – Elaine Butler Doolin, founder of Bespoke Beauty, has worked in the industry for 20 years and been beauty therapist for Hollywood’s A-Listers. Elaine shares her all-time favourite scent…


 The question: What is your favourite smell, other than perfume, and why?

As a qualified Aromatherapist for almost 25 years, I love Scent. My favourite scent is Vanilla. It is a natural aphrodisiac, libido enhancer, and it naturally lowers your stress levels. I always seem to be drawn to scents with vanilla, probably because they’re so entirely relaxing.


Vanilla is one of the absolute best scents to choose if you want to display sensuality, comfort, warmth, and indulgence, that is why I chose it as the signature Scent in my salon Bespoke Beauty. It immediately relaxes our clients & makes them feel at home.

Elaine’s experience as an aromatherapist has given her an insight into how scent works on an emotional level. Vanilla is one of the main components of the oriental fragrance. Flavour and scent are so closely related, so it isn’t surprising that most people have a favourite smell that is also a popular food flavour.
