Did you ever do a 180 on a fragrance?
Did you ever have a change of heart?
Did you ever start out hating something, only to unexpectedly fall hard for it later?
Or the other way around, did you ever fall out of love completely?
Which perfume made you change your mind?
Which perfume made you question your nose and/or judgement?
You wil not believe it – neither did I!
I used to hate By Kilian Back To Black with a passion, I called it a health hazard for diabetics, a hypergycemic disaster, and God knows what else. I even gave away my 8ml mini to lucky blog reader (Hi, E! Still enjoying B2B?). I was sure that Back to Black and I never would cross paths again.
Then in Milan, I am not sure what came over me, I sprayed it on my hand on a whim and that was it. Love!
Back to Black bloomed in its honeyed tobacco glory in the summer heat and was so ravishingly beautiful I would have loved to take a bottle right then and there. I am not that crazy though.
Once back in Vienna, I went straight to Le Parfum, smelled once more and proceeded to buy a travel set with a voucher I still had from my birthday in May.
There you go. I now own a gorgeous travel set of a perfume I used to hate. That’s how it goes. Isn’t that what we all love about perfume? 🙂
I am very curious to hear about your nemesis-turned-lover scents!
