I was chatting away to a lovely colleague, Hayley, the other day and I got a whiff of her perfume. I had to comment on how beautiful I thought it was and this started us on a long discussion of perfumes and good ones that were on the market. We both have similar tastes; light, floral, sweet, summery scents.
The one she was wearing at the time was Flora by Gucci (I’m going to shout myself – don’t tell Husband).
I have had a favourite fragrance for a long time; Issey Miyake, which is also a floral, sweet, summery scent. I adore it.
As it is quite special (and quite expensive) I often save my favourite perfume (Issey) for special occasions, such as dinner outings, parties or date nights (doesn’t really get used all that often these days, sadly). The other two are my everyday or work perfumes, that I still love, but am more liberal with their spraying.
I know fragrances are very personal – what smells good on one, may not smell the same on another. I also know that some people are a bit obsessed with perfumes (Sharon Grech). I also know they date – what I LOVED as a teenager, is now a tad old-school (I secretly still love White Musk and Sunflowers by the way, but can only have a secret sniff in private as they are SO yesterday!)
This got me to thinking…is this normal behaviour? Do you have THE ONE perfume? Or do you rotate your collection of perfumes RANDOMLY? Or with more order? Tell me ALL please!
Thanks for the perfume inspiration Hayley x
