This is truly the finishing touch of getting ready. As Dior says, you can change your perfume with your mood. As true as this is I have always changed mine with the seasons. My Chanel my one that never changes. But, for Spring, I love “Miss Dior”, for Summer I like “Yellow Diamond” by Versace, Fall is Marc Jacobs “Decadence”, and Winter is “Illicit” by Jimmy Choo.
I have so many memories evoked by smell. When I was in high school, every fall I pulled out my “Amber Romance” by Victoria Secret. If I were to smell that right now, I would be transported to a Fall Friday evening, standing on the football field on a Friday night getting ready to cheer. It never left my cheer bag and that was the only time I used it.
Every Easter, MK and I have made the tradition to get each other a new (or one we’re out of) fragrance. And when he leaves for work in the morning, but his scent lingers it makes my heart so happy. We also have a matching perfume that is only made and bottled in Capri, Italy. When we were running around on that gorgeous island, we came across this perfumery and got the His and Hers “In Love” fragrance. I rarely wear it because once it’s gone it’s gone. Unless of course we end up there again.
