The first perfume I remember getting was a little sample of CKone from… somewhere. It was released when I was 10, and I was about 11 when I got that sample. I will forever love that perfume. My taste has obviously matured, but I will always remember having that perfume.
The next one I remember getting was Tommy Girl. My dad got it for me as a Christmas present, and I was so excited about it. My dad, like I said before, is quite the cheapskate, but there are things that he will splurge on, no matter the price. One is jeans. He always stresses the importance of having a durable pair of jeans, and price should never deter your choice. The other is perfume. I think it’s the same thinking, that designer perfumes last longer, so the price shouldn’t deter you.
That started a Christmas tradition that goes on to this day. Everyone else gets to be creative, but my dad brings the perfume. He usually walks into a store and asks for the latest releases, so I have tried a wide variety of perfumes. I have a few firm favourites that, when I can splurge on perfume, I get for myself:
- Black Opium
- Coco Mademoiselle
- La Vie est Belle
- Light Blue
These perfumes have funny stories behind them that I might tell one day.
