To me, wearing a fragrance is part of getting dressed to go out. When I'm wearing a favorite perfume of mine it makes me feel good about myself. Even when I was a little girl, perfumes were something I really liked. One Christmas my Aunt Gertie gave me a gift set with perfume and dusting powder in it. I really loved that gift because it was something that was special to me. She must have liked things like that also.
Growing up, I always saw commercials for Chanel No. 5 and thought it must be really good. I never purchased any for myself because it was too expensive for me, but when I started dating my husband I hinted to get it for a gift. He got me a nice bottle of Chanel No. 5 and it was so great. When it was gone I even kept the bottle for quite a while. I haven't gotten any since but still love the scent!
Quite a few years ago I was working at my church and a lady had some great scent on. I commented how I really liked it and she told me it was Estee Lauder's Beautiful. Well, Beautiful is one of my favorite perfumes now. The last few Christmases I have gotten a gift set with the extra lotion you get with it, although last Christmas my husband forgot to get some Beautiful for me. I then had to go shopping and bought it for myself. Looks like I'll need another gift set soon! Maybe I should just go and buy it myself! I'd really like another bottle of Chanel No. 5 also! It's been quite a few years and I still remember the wonderful scent.
