You know those girls who walk past you and have an incredible smell all around them? I always wanted to be one of those girls. I wanted to have my own smell. Scents don't really stick to me, though. I mean, I don't stink; I just don't smell good. I'm neutral or something.
So I was discussing this with my friend Amanda, and she said I just had to pick the right scent for me. She claimed she had helped other friends out with this before, so I took her up on her offer to go scent shopping with me on Saturday.
She knew just the scents I'd like. She sprayed some samples for me at Sephora; I chose the ones I liked; and I sprayed the 4 I liked the best on my forearms. We then shopped for a while, so that I could smell the scents for a while to determine which one I liked best. (Amanda tried to get me a lower-cut shirt to show off my clavicles. She was not successful.)
Well, I finally decided on Nanette Lepore. I'm starting to re-think that choice, though. It might be a little too . . . baby powdery??? Plus, I'd like to try Hugo for women or Hugo Purple.* We'll see what happens . . .
This is what the Nanette Lepore 30 ml bottle looks like:
I'd like to point out that this is a total mess of a perfume bottle. You can definitely tell it's the product of a designer and not a usability engineer . . . So I wrote the company and told them so. I doubt my measley little e-mail will change the look of an entire designer fragrance line, but here's to hoping . . . And smelling good!
* More on the Hugo brand later . . .
Thing I'm thankful for: Amanda's scent-shopping skills.
