    Default THE TRUTH ABOUT WEARING PERFUME (best BN quotes)

    Many brilliant observations have been posted here at BN. Our members are capable of elucidating insights which would elude the professionals in the industry. This morning, after reading two such bits of truth, I'm inspired to produce a book titled The Truth about Wearing Perfume. However, not having the funding, I'll just start a thread.

    If you've read profound truisms about the wearing of fragrance, please search them out and quote/repost them here or paraphrase them as best you can.

    Not too profound in and of itself, but becomes so when used (as in the referenced post) in an attempt to derail a thread that has gotten out of control.

    Wish I could remember where I read this, but somewhere deep within the recesses of my aging brain I recall an article which highlighted a scientific study proving the sense of smell as the most memorable...I personally agree.

    Chandler Burr was speaking on NPR last week, and in reference to discssing how to create a fragrance he said the perfumer must "find the elements to tell the story". I feel like this is what my perfume wardrobe is to me: fragrant elements to tell the story of my life.

    I would rather go without a bra than perfume! (Then again, like Shakira, my acoutrements are of the small and humble variety).

    Mm Lookingglass, your tastes are very similar to mine.

    I prefer perfume to bras, not a memorable quote, just a comment.
