My current fave...though it isn't anything new...is Ralph.
Just a couple of weekends ago we were all sitting around and talking fragrance.
Past faves of mine are mostly ones by Estee Lauder. But I also wore Clinique Happy for quite a while.
Remember Colors de Benetton? Not sure that I spelled that right. And oh my word, Sunflowers. That is one I'll never forget.
For guys, high school memories are filled with Eternity, Obsession, Drakkar, and Cool Water. Some guys must have thought Cool Water was for bathing in. Or drinking perhaps.
I am probably too cautious when putting on perfume. Erring on the side of too little vs. too much. Perhaps forever scarred by those who bathed in Cool Water back in the day.
When our conversation of perfume was going on that weekend, my sister schooled me in perfume application. Apparently I've been doing it all wrong. She mentioned things like spraying it in the air and walking through...making sure to get it in your hair. Maybe that is why one bottle lasts me so long. I am not spraying it enough or in the right ways or places.
As far as other memories, any scent of Estee Lauder's Youth Dew immediately brings me to my Grandma Shirley. A sniff of Chloe or Shalimar? I'm hugging my mother's neck. I love how fragrances can do that.
What is your current fave? What about past memories? How do you apply it? Do you wear it everyday, or only on special occasions?
