Odors of the Day: Great Perfumes
I am definitely not the most feminine woman on the planet, I will get on the house roof to help my husband re-shingle, or help him lay a new floor in the kitchen. A lot of women I know won't even consider these chores. I don't like make-up, I never wear it and as for fancy clothes, I would rather not. I am a tee shirt and jeans kind of girl. But there is one thing I do daily that I love and can't live without. Perfume. I love perfume and have many different kinds that I wear daily and I have my really good expensive scents that I wear for special, and that means I am going bowling on my league or going to a baby shower. One of my sons once said to me when he saw me putting on my musk perfume, " Mom I didn't know your smell was perfume, I thought that was just the way you smelled". That comment made me laugh. There are oodles of perfumes and colognes on the market today and there is a scent that appeals to almost everyone.
My favorite everyday scent is musk. I guess this comes from being an adult in the 70's. Musk was a very popular scent in the 70's and I just love it. My favorite is Jovan Musk by Coty. It is not an overpowering scent and stays with you for most of the day. An earthy woodsy scent that I just love. Jovan White Musk is a bit more spicy but a lovely scent nonetheless. Musk oils last longer than a spray and you can choose to go either way. There are some musk scents available for men as well and I just love a man that smells good. I will follow them in a store just to get one more whiff.
Opium by Yves Saint Laurent
Opium is my all time forever favorite scent. I have been using this scent for well over 40 years. I will never get tired of this wonderful scent. I have several friends who use this scent as well. It seems to smell slightly different on each person and I love that about this scent. It is a very powerful scent that to my nose is just lovely. I have put it on and can still smell it the next day, although it is not nearly as strong. So I would suggest using sparingly as it is so strong. Many years ago it was quite expensive but the price has gone down or should I say hasn't risen in price to horribly much. In my opinion way worth the cost. A wonderful scent as it has been around a long time, at least 40 years in my memory. The heart shaped bottle of Opium is a wonderful gift for that special someone in your life.
Blue by Ralph Loren
A new favorite for me is Blue by Ralph Loren. A wonderful scent that stays with you all day. The longer into the day the more I like this scent. It changes as the day goes on and makes me feel like I am wearing different perfumes throughout the day. I was at an auction and a lady was wearing it and every time she walked by I would inhale deeply. Finally I asked her what she was wearing because I had to have it. Ralph Loren has some wonderful scents but this one is just heaven.
8 by Abercrombie & Fitch is an outstanding scent. Not to strong but one of my new favorites. I have not been wearing 8 very long but have used half the bottle in a few short months. A light lovely scent that is sure to please. Even my husband loves this one because it's not to strong.
White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor is a wonderful flowery scent. My older sister's favorite. A very popular scent on the market today.
Chanel No. 5 is a timeless perfume. A floral scent that has been on the market since 1921. Truly an outstanding scent that has stood the test of time.
So what woman doesn't like the smell of a man. There are many great scents for men on the market today. A great smelling man is a sexy man.
Polo by Ralph Lauren is a scent that has been on the market for many years. A Polo man is my kind of man. A wonderful scent.
Eternity by Calvin Klein is a woodsy scent that is sure to please. I would love to go hiking behind a man wearing this scent. You can't go wrong if it's Calvin Klein.
Gucci by Gucci is a woodsy scent with a hint of leather. Who doesn't think of a man when one smells leather. A great scent.
Polo Sport is a citrus scent coupled with a scent of the sea for the sports lover.
