During my last trip to Paris, I read "How to be Parisian wherever you are" by the great Caroline de Maigret. She taught me a great lesson about perfume and well... life.
“I believe you should always be ready to meet someone, whether it is your favorite writer or the man of your life. I don’t mean just physically ready—you’ve read, you’ve listened to music. You see—realistic, but still romantic” -C.M.
And as I read the pages of this funny and interesting book, this happened:
"Find your perfume before you turn thirty. Wear it for the next thirty years."
I'm always changing perfumes. I'm always looking for something different, not until I realized how important is to find your own fragrance, your own essence. And so I did.
"We believe the soul of a fragrance comes from the intention with which it is created and the attention with which it is prepared. We believe fine perfumery must create a shock - the shock of the new, combined with the shock of the intimately familiar." -LeLabo
I'm expecting to wear this fragrance for a couple of years, at least until I'm 30.
The experience of discovering my perfume and having my bottle labeled with Dear Perfume, made the whole experience unique but mostly, mine.
