Today I’m wearing Not A Perfume. It’s a woody, dry, clean smell.
For me, perfume is like a drop of confidence. If I wear certain fragrances, I tend to merge with the idea behind the fragrance and it affects how I am about myself. It’s like with certain clothes, or accessories, it can make you stand up a little straighter. I think it all works together in how you present yourself.
The best thing about fragrance is when people pay you compliments on how you smell. So, in a way when you are buying a fragrance, you are buying compliments!
I am pretty basic with my application, I don’t have a secret formula – like you should put it on the nose! It”s always the last thing that I do before I leave the bathroom and I apply it on my pulse points and around my neck. And of course on my clothes, I recommend you put it on your clothes because it leaves a ‘signature’ and clothes are a very good medium to carry the scent.
