Hello Fellow Fumies,
At APJ we have a Saturday Question. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it’s a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.
The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back regularly and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them. The aim is to generate real conversation and connection even though we are scattered around the globe.
Saturday Question: What is Your Fave Date Night Fragrance?
Date Night! Be it with your long time lover, spouse, one nighter, blind date or casual fling. Do you wear for you or them? Do you wear to feel super sexy or go under the radar in case their last partner, boss, sister, uncle or teacher wore it and they’ll be freaked? Heavy handed or ultra light? Do you have a date night signature, spend hours trying to decide or is it the last thing on your mind?
Jin is a funny one. He will love one of my fragrances one day and then complain that it picks his nose the next, only to do an about face a week later. It does make it tricky. I can wear Shalimar five days running (this NEVER happens BTW) and each day will get a different reaction to it.
So whatever I’m going to wear for our date night I make sure it’s at least an hour old on my body before we leave. That means Jin isn’t confronted or ambushed by the loud top notes and he can cuddle up and enjoy the calmer waters of heart and dry down.
Shalimar, Miss Dior, Mohur and Mancera The Oudh are all pretty good percentage of likes and happy compliments. Mostly though he will only make more than a passing comment if it’s annoying him. So I really wear them for myself and my own inner feeling of beauty.
