Sense + Scent-sibility

“Perfume is the indispensable complement to the personality of women, the finishing touch on a dress.” –Christian Dior

When a was young (er) my best friend and I decided to venture in a business. It was one of the few (or many 😂) mistakes we’ve had in our lives. The “business” was quite thriving but we were too oblivious of how to handle money because we were to engrossed with living our first year of adulthood. Yes, that’s 21.

I will not go into details of what transpired during that particular moment in our lives but I promise that once I get a signal from my best friend I will absolutely 💯 disclose the entire story. 😊

For now, be informed that the business we started (and failed) has something to do with fragrances.

(Taken from a collage I kept of our yester-years where we felt invincible and the world was ours for the taking. Good times, Good times 😂)

Anyway, that specific phase of my life influenced my obsession with fragrances. Being a “Scent Consultant” with a flat nose 🤦🏻‍♀️ and failing olfactory nerves, I played the cards I was dealt. 🤣

Today, I am sharing with you some of the fragrances I currently wear:
