In my non-expert opinion, I think the perfume you wear says lot about you. How long have you worn it? Do you switch by season? Do you switch by relationships? It's amazing how you can recall where you were when you smell a fragrance of the past, or, at least I seem to have that super power.
I'm not one to keep wearing the same fragrance over and over. I like to try new scents when the bottle runs out versus going to pick up the same one, season after season.
As I was going through the duty-free shop on my home in Cancun, I found my new favorite fragrance (Flora by Gucci) that is a close second to Viktor & Rolf, which I've been obsessed with purchasing after my Viva la Juicy by Juicy Couture and Daisy by Marc Jacobs.
Let's review my past lives through perfume, shall we?
Love spell from Victoria's Secret reminds me of high school. It reminds me of my senior year of high school where I would buy the lotion and body spray and spray everything with it. My room, my hair and my gym bag for volleyball. Luckily for everyone, it wasn't that potent.
Givenchy very irresistible reminds me of my junior year of college when I lived in townhomes at Kent. I owned the perfume for a few days until I realized it must've fallen in the trash can. Still annoyed by that.
Vera Wang princess reminds me of my first apartment post college
When I first dated the BF, I remember "looking for something in his medicine cabinet" and found quite the interesting selection of skunked colognes. First, there was a bottle of Joop!, yes that Joop!, from 1999 and he was apparently keeping it for some unknown reason. There was also a more recent bottle of Curve, then Acqua di gio and then finally Jean Paul Gaultier LE MALE. He still wears LE MALE and will switch it up with another one but he finally tossed the skunked Joop! a few years ago.
So, what perfumes do you love and hate to wear or smell?
