Scent of Attraction
Ahhh, fragrance. Is there any faster way to alter a mood and a mindset? I think not. While there are as many different scents out there as there are preferences, one thing is certain: finding one that speaks to you and "moves" you is key.
One think many women (and men) overlook is the variety of methods for applying personal fragrance. Are you a scented powder kid of girl, a solid parfum person or a body oil babe? The difference in quality and enjoyment of the fragrance based upon the application might surprise and delight you.
I find it most rewarding to layer my scents, thereby creating my own unique fragrance. Try this: Bobbi Brown's Beach Oil followed by Gucci II eau de toilette (now discontinued, but I have my own stash!) with a dab of Tocca Brigitte solid perfume on the insides of your wrist. Result: aromatic intoxication... in the best possible way.
For the uninitiated... don't miss out on one of life's true great pleasures. Frédéric Malle's line of fragrances is a mesmerizing blend of high-tech innovation and the best natural extractions of exotic (and familiar) essences. Introductions like Carnal Flower are impossible to describe in words. Suffice it to say, the 18 lengthy months it took to create the fragrance was well worth it. You (and your romantic interest) will be thrilled you experimented with this mind blowing aroma. It's like nothing you've ever tried before. Rush to your local Barneys counter and sample the goods. It's worth the effort.
The best tip I can offer you about selecting your own unique fragrance is this: choose on that YOU love. Never wear a fragrance for someone else. If it makes you feel romantic or powerful or sophisticated or dangerous... if it moves you, alters your state and makes you feel amazing: by all means wear it! Remember nothing is as appealing as confidence, and when you find your small stable of mood altering scents consider yourself armed for any challenge life (or love) may toss your way.
