Well another member wanted to know about My Insolence because I own it. And I didn't know how to test that for her. I do know that when I sprayed my wrists at 9pm. I could still smell it several hours later even though it had settled down. And you could smell it on my wrists even if it was just traces for a good part of the next day. but that is with me putting my nose up to my wrists so I don't know if that counts lol.
She asked me what the sillage was like. So I thought I better ask you wonderful people what that was and how I could help her!
Today it was too strong at work and I had to go was it off after a bit. I think on day 3 I needed a break from it. I went from loving it... to falling out of love with it. To thinking it was icky. :'( Bleh! I can love a fragrance... but it doesn't always love me. And people don't seem to like it so much even when I do. I don't know why? Wish it stayed as sweet as when you first spray it. It is a STRONG one though! So I guess that means good sillage? Ugh this afternoon I pretty much hated it. ~ cringe ~ I should have known better. I guess there was a reason I really rarely ever use it. :( All the sweetness goes away after a time and it just turns patchouli :( so sad. Anyway. ~ So confusing!
So I washed it off and put on my favorite so I could remember what it felt like to feel happy in a scent I loved. I REALLLY REALLY needed it.
Luscious Pink of course lol. Even though I wouldn't have necessarily picked that one. But I always get compliments. I had taken a break from that one for a few months. I wore it all last summer. And I decided one day recently to put it on before going to work. Stealthy like. (I hadn't worn it there to work before, they hadn't smelled it yet.) I felt like... let me put on "my" scent for a change. Let's see if anyone notices? Even if they didn't it was ok. It was my experiment to see if I was right? And forgot about it. I wasn't expecting anyone to say anything... they don't really about the other ones. I don't know if they don't like them? Or just don't notice? who knows...
Boom. 3 people complimented me on it, within an hour. So it's the only one I get compliments like that. And I do happen to love it. I can't wear it too much or I will get sick of it. It is a sweet one. I love that it's light though. And my b.f LOVES it on me. So I guess it's a keeper! I just can't keep wearing the same thing 24/7 or I will grow to hate it. So trying other ones I own and trying to pair down my stash. And see what I still like.
I guess that is why I asked about signature scent. Because I think of that one is mine. but sometimes I get sick of it and I like other things. Even when I take a break from it. Even if I grow to hate it. No one really compliments me on those ones. Not like this. So I guess the fragrance picked me! Even if I don't always chose to wear it. It seems to like me a lot! lol
It is interesting the things that end up smelling good on our unique chemistry aren't always the things we think would. ~ Awesome. Chemistry rocks.
