Hey! I'm Kirstie! I'm 24 and I'm from Leicester, UK. Things that make me tick include: perfume, higlighters, nude liquid lipsticks, black ankle boots, gin and tea. I started this blog in 2014 as a place to document my quest to find the perfect products. As 2016 came around, my focus shifted slightly, making perfume and candles the forefront, and the blog was rebranded into Behind The Scent. Later on that year, I started my YouTube channel, 

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 spotlight posts in which I share my Beauty Bargains, Drugstore Gems, High End Heroes and Luxury Loves, 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 Makeup Mondays with all things beauty, What I Did Wednesdays for vlogs, and Fragrance Fridays!
