I don't know if any of you are the same as me but I find choosing perfume really difficult. I never seem to be able to find just the 'right' fragrance. I have accumulated so many bottles of perfume over the years that I could start a shop. I have either bought them for myself, really liking them at the time, only to find that a few days later I really don't care for the smell or it gives me a headache. I also have several bottles that people have given me as gifts and, to be honest, I wish they wouldn't. I don't mean to sound ungrateful but perfume is a very personal thing and I don't think anyone should give anyone else perfume unless they know for a fact that the person really likes a particular fragrance or they already wear it. It's also an expensive gift and for it to lie unused is such a waste of money. For some reason people seem to think I like those 'green' or 'white' perfumes. I don't! I don't mind them on other people but they're not for me so, if anyone reading this wants to send me some perfume, avoid the green and white fragrances. Oh and the very powerful, heavy,musky, sandalwood or vanilla based scents - not for me either.
Anyway, back to my perfume choosing
It all seemed a bit of a palaver at the time but it was certainly worth it in the end as I've now found two lovely new fragrances.
Until the next time,
