I was always in love with perfumes ... but i was a very ordinary guy who doesnt care too much about what i really apply or what are the story of perfumes .... my obsession about fragrances actually started when i quit smoking .....
i quit smoking couple of months ago and i decided to replace that bad habit with something that is beatiful and i wanted to reward myself for quitting smoking ....
i decided to buy a new bottle of perfume with the money i used to buy cigarittes
Iíve yet to figure out why, or how, this works, but itís happened enough times over the past few months that I can only assume the worst. By the worst I of course mean that aliens are remotely turning off the hot water when I decide to wash my hair. EVERY SINGLE TIME! What is that?
