Ok, I am going to show my age here a bit, and say I remember a perfume that was around the house growing up . Who remembers Jean Nate? I can not remember all of the names, but remember many with a very strong scent, and also a musky smell. That definately is not me!! I also remember my dad’s soap on a rope, and Polo for men. I now love floral scents, clean and light My favorite perfume is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, and I do also like the Chance line. As a gift two Valentine’s Day’s ago, I received Miss Dior, which is quite pretty, although a bit stronger than the others. Marc Jacobs has some scents I have in my collection, such as Daisy, but I received Coach Poppy this Valentine’s Day and love it. I think anytime you look at something repeatedly, it means deep down it is something you want. I do love lavendar, orchid, many floral scents, just not musky. Cupid did deliver Poppy, and I love it, Orchid and other floral smells permeate with just enough of a light crisp scent I enjoy.
I am really glad as well, that I don’t have my puppie’s sense of smell! s A dog’s sense of smell is about 1,000 to 10,000,000 times more sensitive than a human’s (depending on the breed) It is crazy, my dogs love the Sombra ( or cream I have to put on my legs for pain control) but can’t even be a foot away from my Chanel perfume. However, my husband can make bacon for breakfast downstairs, we have the door closed, and they still smell it! I am sure they would love a bacon scented perfume. Not me so much.
The next perfume I am looking to buy is either Flowerbomb by Victor and Rolf, and another lovely one I recently tried and earned a sample of is Balenciaga’s Rosabotanica. I HAD to get a perfume now that I am totally in love with. At 100.00 an ounce, sounds like a fair amount, but again, it goes back to the discussion I had a few weeks ago, with cost per use. I have perfume that have lasted years as you need a dot of perfume on the wrist, and the scent lasts. So, these are some of my favorites. .
What is your favorite scent, and what makes it special to you?
