On Sunday, Dutch beauty blog Miss Lipgloss posted the following list of questions on perfumes and I thought it would be fun to post this here!
My small, yet ever-growing perfume collection
What is your favorite perfume? Pick only one!
J’adore by Dior. It took me 1,5 year to buy it, but it’s my absolute favorite perfume.
Which perfume makes you sick?
I don’t have a specific perfume I dislike. I do dislike scents that smell like air refreshners though. That includes everything with a hint of lavender.
Do you use perfume every day?
Only when I go to work, or special occasions
How much do you use?
I spritz 3 times
Where do you spray the perfume?
I spray it in the air and then walk through the mist. I cannot spray perfume directly onto my skin. It makes me itchy. I eventually even develop a rash if I’m not careful
Do you spray more throughout the day?
No. A good perfume lasts most of the day, which is why I prefer eau de perfume over eau de toilette as it lasts longer and you need less
Which perfume do you associate with an important occasion?
N/A I have a horrible sense of smell.
Do you match your perfume to your mood?
Do you match your perfume to the occasion?
No, but I do match my perfume to my outfit and since I do match outfits to occasions… you do the math
Can you recognize perfumes on other people?
No. Again, I have the worst sense of smell.
Which scent do you associate with a friend or family member?
Anaïs Anaïs was my grandma’s go to scent. She once gave me a bottle when I was very little. It only had the tiniest amount left which she dissolved with some water and had me put on during sleep overs.
Which perfume have you bought and rebought because you loved it so much?
N/A. I’m extremely careful with the amount of perfume I use due to allergies. Which is why I only own small bottles and they last me a life time. I’ve had the Hugo Boss Deep Red one for 6 years!
Do you have a strange perfume habit?
(Translation is my own)
