In your (long-gone) days of normal perfume behaviour, did you have a signature scent?
Was there one perfume you have been loyal to for years?
Which perfume was part of you for a significant amount of time?
If you never had a signature, why is that? Would you like to have one? Are you looking for one?
I guess I had a kind of signature scent, or rather a series of monogamist relationships with perfume. I wore Prada, the original for many years, then Chanel Coco Mademoiselle and then Narciso Rodriguez For Her. At least those are the perfumes that I re-bought when they were gone (finishing an entire bottle of perfume, what a strange concept!).
Despite appearances (meaning my incessant testing and blogging), I am still very fascinated and enticed by the concept of a signature. I am drawn to the idea of having a scented identity. Something my beloved ones could identify me with, a perfume that represented me, that enhanced and underscored facets of me.
Apparently I have too many facets that need underscoring on different days.
I ask myself: Will the search ever end? Am I even on a search or is it a journey where the collecting of many, many perfumes is the focus? Am I looking for perfume or am I only enjoying the hunting and gathering part so much?
I’m sorry that I’m answering my MQ with more questions today, but sometimes questions only bring forth more of the same…
How about you?
