Behind The Scent has been around these parts since 2014, where it started life as Kimamely Beauty as I was finding my feet in the beauty world and doing more than a few hungover hauls to make myself feel better... Beauty is always going to be a love of mine, but it was my growing passion for fragrance that made Behind The Scent into the blog you see today, having rebranded at the turn of 2016.

This blog is for you if you are a beauty or fragrance lover, but want to make more considered purchases due to either being on a budget or embracing minimalism. I'm always brutally honest about products - I appreciate that a lot of people can only afford to treat themselves occasionally, so I'm here to stop you wasting your money. I'm also undertaking my own journey to minimalism, which I will mainly be documenting on my YouTube channel with Project Pan challenges, Declutters and Capsule Wardrobe content along the way. 

I aim to upload a couple of times a week on this blog, with a mix of perfume reviews, beauty Hall of Fame posts in which I share my holy grails: Beauty Bargains, Drugstore Gems, High End Heroes and Luxury Loves, as well as New To My Stash posts with first impressions, and so much more.

If that sounds like your cup of tea (yes, you must have a brew when you read this blog. Or a gin, that's cool too), make sure you stick around. Don't forget to check out my YouTube channel for weekly Fragrance Friday videos, as well as at least one other beauty video throughout the week.
