Many Wonders of Perfume


I recently came across some fun facts on perfume, which I thought were really cool. I’d like to share my favourite ones in this post but you can also check out the full article here.

Perfume Facts

  • France is the perfume capital of the world.
    I wonder if I’ll ever set foot in this perfume paradise. Speaking of which, my friend, Divina, recently went to Paris to visit all her favourite perfumeries. She also wrote an excellent piece about her trip on her blog.

  • We are many people in one - each should have a different scent.
    I guess this explains my many different scents for my many different alter egos.

  • Perfume can be applied externally and affect us internally.
    How beautifully put and oh so true.

  • Scent can change the way we live and feel.
    CK Escape never fails to ignite passion, making me feel truly alive; ready and confident to face the world.

  • Perfume can release emotion, awaken joy, bewitch and soothe, inspire and transform, take us back in the past or lead us on into the future.
    As depicted in one of my posts about a friend and his undying memories of a previous love.

  • Fragrance layering - scented bath & shower gels, after bath scented bath oils, application of a scented body lotion, after bath splash and then perfume oil applied on all pulse points.
    This is why I also collect delicious smelling shower gels, body lotions, bubble bar slices and bath ballistics besides perfumes - it’s
    all about fragrance layering!

Well, there you go. Now you know a little bit more about perfume and why I love them so much!

You shud smell some of the people I mingle with during my work hours. I don't think they've heard of deodorant, let alone perfume .. LOL!

I've friends who fall into the category Nick mentioned. I could "smell" them from a distance...
Marzie, I think you should promote your blog to this group of pple. They need to read more of your posts to understand what Perfume is all about ;p

Friends? Ooooh, that's the worst part, not being able to them directly for fear of offending them! :) Send your friends over here Janice! LOL :)

Nick Phillips, MY July 3, 2007 at 4:02 PM

I can imagine your horror. Subang to Bangsar huh? I'd have just got out at the next nearest stop .. hahahaha ... yup, having frens who smell like that is even worse. Thank god all my real frens smell okay. LOL! (and yeah, I have 'fake frens' too in case you're wondering ... hehehe)

When I think of a woman, it's not just her face I see, it's the sound of her voice and her scent. A woman that chooses a delicious perfume is a woman I will remember. It's one of those things that as a man, drives me wild:)

I'm so happy to hear that Bobby cause that means you appreciate my passion for perfume! :):)

I love 'Pure Poison' by Dior... I sort of collect miniatures too nowhere near the scale you do... my mom loves perfumes and her bathroom as well as dresser is like a perfume store... so for me beautiful scents and smells are part of what makes the world such a lovely place to be in.......

Mariuca July 5, 2007 at 11:59 PM

Hey Amber, nice to see u here again and I do have Pure Poison in my collection! I love it too, good choice :)

I'm envious of your mom's bathroom, it must smell and feel like perfume paradise. Thanks for your lovely comment, beautiful scents do add more love and happiness to the world.
