Fragrances can be found all around, from scented candles, to all our favourite bath and body products.
There are numerous reasons why we wear perfumes, but ultimately it boils down to the fact that they make us feel happy. The reason we feel happy depends on the individual, but can range from memories the scent invokes, a feeling of escape, and the ability to show individuality through fragrances.
Perfume can boost a persons self-esteem as their feelings of being attractive grow. This, certainly, makes any woman feel happy. There is a strong connection between fragrances and memory. For instance, we may be somewhere shopping and smell something from a nearby bakery that reminds us of something our Mother made for us when we where little. The same goes for hundreds of other scents which give us positive memories. Connecting ourselves to these memories through easily obtainable fragrances makes us happy.
We all need to escape. Whether we are tired mum’s, grandparent’s, or working mums. We all need a place of escape and that escape is often found in a bath, shower, or massage. Fragrances can take us to a place of calm and serenity. They can rejuvenate our minds and energise our senses.
The ability of a fragrance can make us feel desired, connect us with memories, help us to escape and help us show our individuality.
Do you have a signature perfume?
This is my favourite – I have worn this perfume for 40 years (wow, soooo long !!) and although I have tried others this is the one I return to.
The below is copied from Estee Lauder –
Azurée was inspired by the Mediterranean warmth near Mrs. Estée Lauder’s vacation home in Cap d’Antibes, off the coast of France.
When asked to describe Azurée, Mrs. Lauder said, “Azurée is a golden girl, languorously basking in the warm Mediterranean sun. She is the eternal optimist spreading sunshine everywhere she goes.
I do hope you have enjoyed this weeks post and are all now well on the way with your Christmas shopping and plans.
Wishing you all the very best for this festive season.
