You smell wonderful tonight

If you talk about perfume in my family, you gotta listen to my dad.. he’s this funny flamboyant man who had a great sense of fashion and style.

he is my first introduction to fashion, from italian leather finest quality handbag to the importance to smell wonderful. Because of his job, he was fortunate enough to travelled almost around the world. when he got back, he brought lot of things for my mother; bags (which is now become my vintage aigner handbag) and perfume.

I remember my first sets of perfume (or was it my moms?) a seven miniature bottles from Paris. I didn’t like the smell of it (I was only a little girl), but I like the shapes of the bottles. When I grew up, and old enough to smelled un-baby cologne, my father bought me my first channel. It was Allure. I felt so grown up, yet I rarely used it (the bottle was so small, and I was a cheapo).

Then, I got my fave perfume, Clinique Happy. I wore it until the last drop. It doesn’t smell like grown-ups, and I really, really, really loves it.

The next one is, the most popular parfum ever, CK be. I love it.  If I may say, the unisex smell is genius. My bf wore it too. 😉

My other favourite, I wear it until last drop too, is Gucci Rush II, when I got it I didn’t know that this perfume was so popular until I mention it to one of my friend. ( She said the sequel better than the first one.),  but because I love it so much, I bought the first one, Gucci Rush, and Gucci Rush Summer.

I tried other brands, Miracle by Lancome, Romance by Ralph Laurens, Flower by Kenzo, La Belles de Ricci from Nina Ricci, the infamous No. 5. , J’Adore and Tendre Poison by Dior, But my gem in the collections is a series of limited edition also  by Christian Dior.

Forever and Ever, Remember Me, I Love Dior and Dior Me, Dior Me not. They are my baby, the last one was given genorously by my friend (no, not used, still sealed!) because she ‘didn’t like the way it smell, too girly’. I love you, Rhil for hating Dior’s smell. 😉 Sadly I can’t find the image of Remember Me, since it’s my favorite, showing a girl with Greek gown carrying a bow with lilac falling down her hair. Very beautiful.

my last perfume purchased was.. I can’t barely remember, maybe a FCUK from my bf.., I miss perfume so much but now with financial things to think, before bought it I always thought, there is something more important than to smell wonderful.

thinking again, maybe there is, but smelled wonderful is a cherry in your ice cream. No matter how expensive your outfit are, it’s nothing if you smell.. bad, but no matter how cheap your clothes are if you smell wonderful, you can make people like you -a nice attitude will help too-. (so to think again, perfume is a better investation than clothes.. :D)

because I’m such a cheapo wearing these expensive sprays, for every day use I wear Bath and Body Work Body Spray (I love Coconut Lime Verbana scent).
