I have always been a lover of good smells.
I remember saving my money when I was in school just to buy candles.
I just love being surrounded by lovely smelling things.
And existing in environments with bad smelling things puts me in a grumpy mood.
Shallow I know, I know.
Things I buy because my nose has a bad smell complex:
dried lavender dryer sheets,
specialty laundry detergent,
wall plug-in air fresheners,
and more candles than I would like to admit.
Anyway, I have been on the lookout for a new Eau de Toilette which lead me to reminiscing about all the scents I have worn over the years.
Moonlight Path from Bath and Body Works was my junior high scent. Whenever I smell it I instantly think of awkwardness, backpacks and half lockers because apparently junior highers cannot be trusted with full lockers.
When I got into high school I switched it up and started wearing Ralph Lauren Romance because that’s what cool high school girls wore. Alas I was still not cool.
For that matter, I am still not cool. Quirky but not cool. :)
Then in college I went through a long stretch of some sort of depression and switched to Ralph Lauren Blue;)
When I graduated from college I got an internship of sorts with a design company. Part of the perk of that job was that everyone went on a company paid vacation to the South Beach Ritz Carlton every year. Well the Ritz provided Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au the Blanc Eau de Cologne to all their guests. After staying in the hotel and showering with Bvlgari shower gel I fell in love with the scent and promptly switched from my blue’s depression scent. (And it’s still a favorite scent of mine.)
Then that design company dissolved, I lost my job, and I went back to a blues perfume called Bvlgari Blv By Bvlgari For Women.
I went through a few years of trying to find myself, or my scent rather.
And then at my lingerie bridal shower back in October my sister-in-law gifted me with Victoria Secret’s Sheer Love body mist. It’s light and sweet and happy. I love it.
It’s all the things I aspire to be.
What do all these scents say about me?
That like everything else I do I am very ADD:)
Are you a “one scent for life” kinda person or do you like to switch it up?
