    Default Re: You know your obsessed with fragrance when...

    ....when you walk around looking like you have a tic because you keep sniffing the inside of your elbow.

    ....when you're running out of space to spray testers on your arm, & you feel like an addict looking for a vein.

    ....when you go to bed, but get up again because you realise you haven't sprayed anything on first.

    Or is that just me??

    1.When you go into a store and start teaching the SA about certain notes (i did this recently at a YSL counter, explaining what agarwood/oud was when testing a bottle of M7 ..... she'd never heard of oud).
    2.Reciting/referencing obscure fragrances when testing in stores (eg. "hmmm, nice, reminds me of some etat libre d'orange fragrances")
    3.When you take a photo of your collection and use it as desktop wallpaper (guilty).
    4.When you can't pass a shop selling perfumes without going in and asking for samples.

    I thought that was called "acute alcoholism." Unless you're referring to a pure oil. In that case, carry on.

    When you consider spraying it up your nose, in the bazaar hope that it might last you 1.12 months.

    When you constantly sniff your wrist (sneakingly) in public and even turn your wrist the other way round under your nose, when analysing a fragrance. A nutcase!
