"A woman who doesnt wear perfume has no future" - Paul Valery
I found that quote in the book; Sleeping with the Enemy: Coco Chanel's Secret War . For some reason it stuck out to me. Maybe because this month I have been looking for a new/part time signature scent or because I find the scent of people very.... interesting.
I really can remember people for their smell. If you dont have a smell.... then you really dont stick into my mind. There are times I will have major flashbacks of different smells.
Smells of love, hurt, family, excitement and heartbreak. I really cherish it all. I really have the worst memory, so scents really trigger something in my brain that brings things back to me.
My signature scent is Gucci Eau De Parfume II, my new "daily" scent is Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline. The whole "daily" kick for me is that I was thinking that my Gucci is for special occasions, because I find it a little pricey, but lo and behold I find a new scent and its not so um, cheap.
Whats your signature scent?

Ok so all I could think at first is "Can you smell what the rock is cookin'" But then I read the post and I get what you're sayin.

I've worn Allure by Chanel for about a decade. (Yay for Chanel, right?) I thought about changing it last time I went to buy a bottle and thought -- no way! So, Allure it is.
