The majority of the time I get decants so I cannot be influenced at all by the packaging except if the person puts nice pink and shiny heart stickers on it !
I enjoy a perfume with my eyes closed, I love the ritual of oil, it's just a special moment for me in the day ...
Adds to me are there to sell you crap and most of the time they do not correspond to what's in the bottle. A real perfumista gets collection bottles with gorgeous scents inside.
I've been brought up on the African continent, there weren't anything like adverts there and I just kept away from these things, sorry.
