Here's a selected few perfumes that has spoken to me over the years...
Christian Dior Miss Dior - my first encounter to perfume and luxury. It's my mom's. I think she still has it somewhere in her closet. I was really little then but I remembered it smelling like jasmine and classy (I can't coin the term then). It must have shaped my view on luxury brands since. I don't mind a cheap handbag or shoe but when it comes to perfume, I want the real stuff. The fake stuff at the grocery stores can never do it for me.
Vera Wang - Absolutely love this. It's one of my all time favorites. If you smell this on me, I am probably doing something important. It makes me feel feminine and empowered. If I ever get married, there is no question what I would be wearing... and I don't mean the dress... LOL
As much as I am mesmerized by Chanel No. 5, I actually don't like the scent at all. I personally preferred No. 19 more. My prejudice to No.5 could also be psychological since my first experience with the scent is from my high school chemistry teacher, who I swear was wearing a fake from the drugstore and she was drenched in it. I felt like if I buy No. 5 now it would make me no different than anyone else who bought No. 5 just because it's No. 5. I needed a good intimate experience before I would bite the bullet. After all, it's supposed to be the queen of all female fragrance. It deserves a better treatment from me.
