Have you ever wondered just how popular the perfume that your wearing is? I recently found out/discovered that a much older relative is wearing the same perfume as me. I think in that moment I realized I might be slipping into old age too early. (Not that old is bad. It’s just, well older than I thought I would be).
I was shocked that someone I knew would also be wearing “blah blah”(omit perfume name here, so said relative doesn’t get offended I called her old). When buying popular brands it never occurred to me that one day I would be walking past someone who smelt just like me.
So is your perfume just a cliché or a commonness as you walk down the street? Is your lasting impression the same smell 1000 other woman leave? Sure it’s better than leaving the smell of gastric upset after too many lattes at lunchtime but does your scent really define YOU?
I have recently gone back to my youthful days when I would use essential oils for everything including perfume. So the scent I leave behind these days is usually peppermint for daily headaches (ironically it could be caused by too much peppermint) Or Ylang Ylang which I literally bathe in with my homemade face-wash.
What is your scent? Is it on the top 10 list? (comment below) Names such as Poison, Hugo, Envy, CK one, 212 sexy – I have actually never heard of. But I do live in a slight bubble called “2 children under 6”. Full top ten list here.
