In my ignorance or niaviity, I avoided using perfume and scented products for most of my life. I think possibly I’d had a reaction to a spray of scent or maybe my mother decided for me that I was unable to wear it. However, these false worries make such an impact on our ability to try out new ideas. When I’m in a gorgeously posh department store, I never fail to wander around the very glamorous and fabulously smelly beauty counters. Those ladies that hold court behind their counters – always very made up and always smelling divine, are supposed to advertise their wares for the store and the brand. These days I just eoy their spectacle and buy my perfoume products online where there is a wealth of information and help about each product, the high notes and base notes, the ingredients to bring the perfume to its finished state.
