I need a scent.
Usually I emit chocolate and dry erase marker but I’m starting to feel that I need something more substantial.
I often pass women who I think smell good but I am not one to stop them and ask what perfume they are wearing.
And then I pass women who have poured the bottle on them and think maybe I could do without.
The problem is that the few times that I have looked for a scent I always walk away discouraged. I don’t like flowery, I don’t like strong, I don’t spicy, and I don’t like woodsy.
I like light, fresh, vanilla, and citrus.
Maybe I should just skip the perfume and rub a vanilla cupcake with citrus frosting on my body and call it a day.
But then I came across this Ladies Home Journal online quiz, “What’s Your Signature Scent?” and thought maybe this could help me.
The quiz is a simple 10 question quiz that delves into your favorite type of movie, what you find romantic, and what you like to eat.
Maybe not too scientific but at this point I am ready to try anything.
I answered all 10 questions and found out I am considered a natural woman.
I didn’t think the description was dead on and plus, I shave my arm pits, something that I believe excludes me from the natural woman category all together.
So I changed up my answers to a few of the questions.
Again, not quite the way I would describe myself but I decided to explore the perfumes they had recommended for me.
I started with Escada Island Kiss….
Beautiful bottle, let’s read the description…
Hmm, I was with them until they got to “a hint of musk.”
What is musk?
What the F ?
Just because I checked that I like to eat meatball sandwiches and wear lip balm suddenly means I want to smell like a deer?
I don’t even want to smell like “just a hint of musk.”
I went on to read the descriptions of the other perfumes and think I have found the one I am most interested in.
The L de Lolita Lempicka Eau de Parfum Spray is currently sitting in my amazon shopping cart but first I’m going to through it out to you my friends.
Anyone have a favorite perfume they would like to recommend?
