A few years ago, I decided that I would find myself a perfume that I would really like and that it would match my personality well. So I went in a few store and found one that caught my attention. But I did not want to make an impulsive purchase, so I decided to wait and see. I think it took over a year for me to make sure that I still liked it as much as before, and that I would not get bored of that scent easily. Since I had planed to identify myself with a single perfume, I did not want to go wrong.
During all that time, I also looked up what scents men prefered (vanilla is apparently very popular), and it seems like I'm all set up for sensuality and arousal with my perfume:
Top note: Cocoa
Middle note: Vanilla
Base note: Patchouli
Got any special story about your perfume? Or the one that you like the best? What does it smell like?
I need to look it up for you, but one of the fragrance stores which uses a lot of natural ingredients will make ANY fragrance you want. A specialist analyzes your likes and dislikes and actually sometimes SMELLS you, with no fragrance on, and then you and he or she develop a signature fragrance.
I think it's Sephora, but I need to find out for you.
Anyway, years ago, someone gave me Bath and Body Works Moonlight Path as a gift. I only used it when I ran out of my regular hand and body creme (unscented stuff) and shower and bath gel.
I realized that this fragrance was perfect for me. I have a lot of allergies and I have severe migraine headaches, and I hadn't worn fragrance for years. Moonlight Path does NOT bother my allergies nor cause migraines! I was so happy to find something not too aggressive smelling, that I could use as a signature fragrance. I used to wear Dior's Dioressence, but it started to give me migraines, so I had to give away several hundred dollars of perfume that my Dad bought for me (he was the only person I knew who could afford it, and he spoiled me when I was younger.
Anyway, I LOVE Moonlight Path. It contains many of the fragrances I love (lavender, musk, it's not too flowery, but still feminine) and people now know this scent is ME!
A friend of mine cheerfully complains, that he knows when his wife has been out and I've been baby sitting, because when he gets home his toddler smells like "Auntie Gelli!"
My Man walked out of the bathroom after I'd been bathing and primping in there and said, "Have you ever walked into a Strip Club?" I said, unless you count The Sugar Shack (male dancers in Wisconsin) No, of course not. He said, "That's what my bathroom smells like. A Strip Club." To him, this was good. *sigh* What am I gonna do with this Man?
