Oddly, fragrance has been on my mind, and I just filled out a survey about fragrance habits.
Do you have fragrance habits? I used to get a new scent every time I got a new steady beau. For several years – or so I was told – my co-workers at the firehouse knew I was on duty when the stairwells smelled like me. That would have been the Liz Claiborne Claiborne era, followed by the Ralph Lauren Lauren era…
Then I married the Knight. I love me a floral, but I can’t stand a strong scent, and several friends are even less tolerant than I am, so I don’t wear fragrance daily. Plus, I think shampoos and lotions are far more fragrant than they used to be, and the wrong combination can give me a headache in three seconds.
I think my favorite fragrance ever is Kate Spade by Kate Spade, but wow is it a luxury treat.
Currently, I spray on Mary Kay’s Belara more often than not, but in the summer months, I’m still polishing off an ancient bottle of Jessica McClintock. I do have Gucci Guilty for special occasions, but it’s pretty potent and a little heavy for me for daily use.
Do tell me about your fragrance use. Has it changed over the years? Or do you truly have a signature scent?
