Perfume in the early days was a determination of class, distinction and good taste. I can simply say that the attitude of wearing perfume has not changed much since the 1800’s. Perfumes are a great mixture of many elements, not easily identified or broken down by the average nose. For the most part, perfume is based on three identifiers: intricate mixture of top notes, heart notes, and base notes. Top notes are said to be more temporary and evaporate more quickly, while the base notes are long-lasting. Whether male or female, we can all enjoy the instant mood elevation and brain’s reaction to smelling a pleasant scent in our midst. The heart note is said to be the main body of the perfumes composition.- noticed in the middle of the perfumes overall aroma release- perfume is a multi-layered agent of beautiful smell with distinction. As a woman, I can convey my own experience of what I feel about perfume and fragrance. I know that it adds happiness to my mood, attitude and enjoyment.
Perfume is every woman’s or can be any woman’s solace and happiness. That’s a broad and bold statement to make, indeed. I will humbly qualify my assessment with examples and/ or perhaps attempt to enlighten you more about my view.
There are so many beautiful scents to engage throughout the course of the day. Smelling a great perfume instantly makes me happy, relaxed or changes a bad mood to a peaceful mood within seconds. I cannot say that I have even not enjoyed smelling a great scent, whether worn by me or by another person, Satiating the sense of comfort through pleasing scents brings me much happiness and enjoyment. I like to wear one perfume for a while and then move on to another perfume that is totally different than what I wore the month before. Perfume creates or invites a mood, creates or spurs a memory, or act as a gentle, soft reminder that the person wearing perfume is wanting to keep a memory alive, or to make themselves happy by enhancing, or adding spice or flowers to enjoy their own sense of smell. Perfume is usually worn by the person that likes to be soothed by smelling a chosen scent throughout the course of their day. I can honestly attest that I wear perfume for myself first, and if people enjoy perfume, they too will wear it, choosing a scent that makes their sense of smell happy too. Many scents engaged throughout the course of the day bring about change, encourage new thoughts, or even bring a sense of hope, or preparation. When I smell freshly brewed coffee, my eyes become alert and my mind gets ready to work. I like to take freshly eaten apples and boil the core and add a sprinkle of cinnamon. That smells so good and radiates a comfortable, cosy environment in your home of office. It’s an inviting scent for friends and family to sit down and relax. The scent of fresh-baked cookies is used by real estate agents to help prospective buyers obtain a pleasing smell connection- one that’s kept in the memory, by the thought of the home for sale, Utilizing the sense of smell, thus connects the buyer to the pleasant smell and connects the smell to the comfort of the home.
In economically harder times, people wore authentic vanilla extract behind their ears to smell clean and crisp, stimulating the sense of happiness, or a least they smelled like vanilla cookies. Again, stimulating another sense and bringing memory to the buyer through the senses of smell, sight, and touch.
While I don’t get paid to endorse any particular perfume, I do have my favorite scents and some are expensive and others, not so much. There really is little discernible difference, at least to me, as to what I wear more or less often. I enjoy a clean, crispy, classy scent, like the ones that remind My grandmother was able to rapture just about any male within her vicinity, simply by her way of layering scents with other beauty products to enhance their hues and scents. I was gifted with a lot of sample bottles, by her, when I was a little tot. She gladly shared her scent favorites with my sister and me. A lot of her secrets to making her perfume last longer, was utilizing less. She was recognized by the smell of a,just dabbed secret scent behind her ears. Though, that was not often the case. A lot of my grandmother’s choice of scents have sent many a man insane with sexy, refreshing, alluring notes of brands, that are still well known in the perfume industry today. She always smelled freshly showered of fine, classic, modern parfum. that will always connect me to the memory of my grandmother. ** I also enjoy the sporty scents of my sister’s choice. I can easily be happy with the expensive, recognizable scents that my grandmother wore throughout her lifetime. ~
One of my few expensive indulgences in life is daily wearing a fine perfume and changing my perfume choices monthly, a myriad of beautiful smelling real perfumes and sometimes even eau de toilette scents too! Anything that touches any one of the five senses is an instant mood elevator or opens a gateway for peace, comfort or change. Listening to music and creating my own lyrics for music is also something that is very important to me and it stimulates peace and opens the gates of creativity by stimulating any one or more of the five senses. Combining two or more senses creates massive memory and mind happiness. Sometimes listening to certain songs while wearing a perfume that I wore ten years ago will really get my mind and imagination ready for creativity and full-blown prompting for writing great songs, poems or purging my thoughts in my daily journal. Wearing amazing scents can alter your mood and create new ideas, or even bring a smile to your face.
