The Ultimate Mother’s Day Shopping Guide – Vol. 3


My Two Scents

The famous Tiffany & Co. jewellery designer Paloma Picasso once said – “A perfume is like a piece of clothing, a message, a way of presenting oneself; a costume that differs according to the woman who wears it.”

It’s true that you are never fully dressed without perfume. The reason I wear perfume is just not to smell good but also feel good and lively. Perfumes not only make an impression on the people around but also create memory associations for the one wearing it. Nothing lifts up the spirit and makes you feel pretty like a good perfume. Your perfume should bring life to your persona and exuberate your personality.

It’s quite funny that every perfume company promotes their fragrance with a promise to lure men to women. None of them smell of motherhood. None of them promotes or advertise their scents to be worn by women who are tidy, thrifty, intelligent and sensible. Well, that’s just my perception.

Here are some tips to buy the right perfume

Honestly, perfume is an indulgence and a splurge. However, that’s just part of the deal – refrain from buying the cheap imitations because they don’t give the real experience of the original perfume.

To some extent, your perfume should choose you. Never decide right away. Body chemistry makes a difference in the way a scent smells on you, so wear it for a while before buying.

Match your fashion sense. Your ‘look’ should have matching ‘smell’. One reason for this is that a scent is very personal, and there’s really no barometer other than your personal style and your own judgment. The other is that smells evoke memories, and you want your smell to evoke an accurate one.
