While I was studying, I didn't get any new fragrances, but wore what I had. I got married during this period, and the man who's now my husband liked ╔go´ste so much on me that he started to wear it himself, too. We both wore it at our wedding, and more than a decade later it's still "our scent".
When I spent a semester in St.Petersburg as an exchange student, the ruble crashed, and I could allow myself the luxury of a new scent. Still not a full-size bottle, but two minis:
Has anyone found an online source for Les Plus Belles Lavandes by Caron? Would appreciate help in finding a source.
I am a hypocrite when it comes to scents. I recently stereotyped men who wear "Pink Sugar" by Aquolina. But I myself decided to wear a "male" scent a few months ago -- "Spirit" by Antonio Banderas (actually by Puig, as I later learned). It reminds me of someone I knew, and liked, and I rather wanted his presence with me as I was doing something rather difficult.
The odd thing is, I find it an incredibly stinky scent. I finally identified what was in it
I checked the forecast for today, and it says it'll be a high of 20*C (68*F). That's decently warm, I think. Not sweltering summer heat by any stretch, but considering we're just rolling through Spring now, I was looking forward to decently warm weather. Unfortunately, it was not to be. It's actually chilly outside. But I should have known something was up. One of my favorite summer fragrances, much like the famed groundhog of Groundhog Day, refused to come out today.
Warm weather plus
I have no idea when and where I got started with perfumes, probably by sniffing interesting looking bottles on the vanity tables (at homes of relatives and family friends), which were my favourite hang-outs as a kid. Mirrors, lippies, jars, bottles... couldn't get enough. I also started to read about scents very early from my mother's and aunt's beauty & fashion mags.
But the definite starting point of my perfume collecting was when I wished Ana´s Ana´s or Rive Gauche for Christmas
