What do I wear to bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course.
For those of you have experienced the luxurious scent of Chanel No. 5, and for those of you who only know it by name, it is definitely in large part to the brand endorsement of Marilyn Monroe back in 1953 that contributed to the success of the ‘most legendary fragrance’ of all time…
When asked what she wore to bed, Marilyn replied: “Five drops of No. 5″…the fragrance still sits at the top of the shelves and remains a number one seller in women’s perfumes.
In the spirit of scent, I must say, perfume is absolutely the first thing I put on each day. After a shower is the best time to put your perfume on, your pores are still open so the scent will last longer. Also, do not rub your wrists together, that only removes the scent. Dab it on your wrist, behind your ear and if you like a little more, spritz it in the air then walk through it so it will leave a hint on your clothing and hair.
When I sit next to a woman in a theatre, or stand behind one in line at the grocery store, the first thing I will notice is her fragrance. There is nothing I appreciate more in the world of beauty than a unique, feminine and confident scent.
Here are a few scents I adore, either smelling them on my friends, strangers, in malls or have worn myself:
This is the fragrance I wore all through high school. I can still recognize it when someone has it on…
My best friends mother worked for Ralph Lauren and sent us a sample of this. I was hooked and got the bottle a year ago Christmas…. Love is the perfect name for it, I loooove it!
Ralph Lauren – Love
My man got me this fresh scent last year for my 21st birthday… I wear it whenever I go out with him, and YES he notices…
Burberry Brit – Sheer
This is my mother’s signature scent. Whenever I smell it, I think of her… It’s definitely a classic!
Dolce & Gabbana – Light Blue
If there was one luxurious and unnecessary thing I could have an endless supply of it would be perfumes. I would want a whole room filled with tiny glass jars, ones with pumps that you spray on you like a queen, the ones with jeweled embellishments. I would wear a different one everyday, I would never leave home without a little scented love. If only all my dreams could come true…
Remember, the best accessory to any outfit is perfume…. I think Coco Chanel put it best when she said “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” Think about it!
