Are you looking for that one special perfume?
The one fragrance that is totally you?
A signature scent to grow old with?
Or did you give up on that notion, if you ever entertained it?
Are you looking for a perfectly balanced wardrobe, an extensive collection or a single wonderful signature scent that has it all?
Although I enjoy the most diverse perfumes, and attempt to curate my own collection to perfection, I often still find myself dreaming of finding that one perfume that is simply perfect. The one I never want to let go again, the one that compells me to wear it day in, day out, the one that underscores my personality, suits me, flatters me, completes me.
I realize this is the wish of a young girl imagining her prince. I strongly suspect neither exists.
Just as one person cannot and should not be everything for me, one perfume can’t fulfill me either. The fairy-tale ideas of ideal romance will be corrected by real life sooner or late, because no matter how lovely the person you end up spending your life with is, he or she won’t be able to compete with a perfect fantasy.
I guess a perfume can’t either.
But what a perfume can do, is be perfect for a moment. The one perfect scent for “right here and now” exists. And I’m glad, chances are not bad that I can find it in my collection.
What are your thoughts about the one?
