Hello Fellow Fumies,
Every Saturday we have a Question, an idea purloined from Olfactoria’s Travels. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it is 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 and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them.
Saturday Question: Which Fragrance Does Your Partner Love?
Most of us have partners who shake their heads in bewildered fascination or horror at our unreasonable lust for perfume collection. Some even have partners who are uncomfortable around a lot of fragrance and who suffer our addiction on a multitude of levels. Jin finds a few of my fragrances give him very uncomfortable prickles in the nose and a few have even induced nightmares.
So this makes the fragrances they love even more special and important. The ones they notice happily, snuggle in for or that are downright fabulously dangerous to wear around them. Today I’m wondering what your partners really like that you wear.
Jin is a funny one. He rarely outright compliments a fragrance after all this time together. Almost the only times I hear what he thinks about my fragrance is if it irritates him in some way. Fairly standard partner stuff I’m sure.
When I wear Neela Vermeire Mohur and he picks it I get a happily surprised reaction. He likes it, thinks I smell particularly good in it, is also really happy when he can pick it and feels quite impressed with himself.
Guerlain Samsara is another one he compliments most of the times I wear it. It’s not that often so the wear to compliment ratio is pretty high. I have some old parfum that is particularly lush and just a half spritz of it smells fabulous.
