      I volunteer at Dress for Success, an incredible and inspiring organization that provides interview outfits and job search assistance to women re-entering the work place. It is truly gratifying to have the opportunity to be a volunteer and to witness the transformative impact of a well-chosen work outfit and to be a small part of the prodigious accomplishments of this vital organization. What always interests me as a perfume fanatic is that when perfume samples are available they are a very popular item. The right outfit can bolster confidence and improve appearance, but the power of perfume to transform not only one’s appearance, but also one’s demeanor continually delights and surprises me. The ability to feel good about oneself works in ways both physical and emotional. I understand completely the desire for the one thing that so effortlessly brings oneself and others happiness, a fragrance.

      History is full of stories about fragrance and specific scents made famous by equally famous people. Coco Chanel once said, "A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future." This quote has led me to entertain thoughts of famous women in history and the perfumes in existence today that might suit them. It may seem an eccentric pastime to the average person but I am convinced that I am not the only perfume addict who does this. After all, a mesmerizing line of perfumes, Histoires De Parfums, by the talented and creative Gerald Ghislain features perfumes inspired by Collette, George Sand and Mata Hari.
