A Fragrance that Surprised Me

1a2 A Fragrance that Surprised Me

Over the lifetime of my blog I can’t recall a time I’ve posted anything about fragrances. The reason for that would be I don’t care much about fragrances, perfume, women’s cologne, etc… Sure, I like to smell fresh, but I also like to run out the door in a huge rush every day trying to get to the office at the last possible minute before my termination for tardies. So, during this crunch time, routines get evaluated and then some of them get skipped. It really has nothing to do with a dislike for smelling nice and more to do with the simple fact that I don’t think about it.

Yes, there was the time at Governor’s Ball when I forgot deodorant and I feel confident I’ve smelled better, or when I went to the theater after a 90 degree day drenched in sweat… but for the most part I think I smell fine.

Like every girl, I like to indulge in the spritzing of my wrists and then rubbing them together (I know the rubbing breaks down the perfume blah blah blah) before a night out with the love of my life… but outside of that, I don’t really wear fragrances. However, understanding that with the current heat index I could use a little help when going directly from work to night time activities I threw this little roller perfume bottle in my bag.

It had been sitting around and I thought to myself, Why Not? Dropped it in the bag and not much else happened. I forgot to use it until the other day. (This isn’t odd, I forget many things.) I was digging in the bottomless pit that I call my handbag and grabbed it instead of my chubby stick. To my delight I used it. Then I used it the next day. And again today. It is great. I’m loving it.

Urban Outfitters Rose Petals, Peony, and Bergamot Perfume Oil is infused with real rosebuds and because of the oversized roller ball it is easy to put on in a rush. I have become a little addicted as of late. It has a beautiful bottle that is pretty enough to pull out of your bag anywhere. The best part is the perfume oil isn’t expensive so it is a harmless addiction.

Do you guys have any easy secrets for smelling fresh even when your not?

    I have to say that this scent probably wouldn’t be for me because I am not really a floral person. BUT I love the fact that the scent isn’t transparent and that the bottle is sooooo simple. It’s a great package.

    I buy a LOT of perfume but I hardly wear any of it because I keep on coming back to my favourite MMM (maison martin margiela) fragrance that smells like moss.

      I don’t think I have really nailed down my scent yet… I also love the smell of moss, and very much like the smell of fresh cut grass. In the 90′s Gap had a fragrance spay that was called Grass and I loved it! I think they tried to bring it back but no one like it, LOL.

    Those notes sound like they smell amazing though!! Peonies and roses SMELL SO GOOD BY THEMSELVES. I have a ton of fragrances, but I’m always forgetting to slap them on despite my efforts to remind myself and put various fragrances in my various bags. #THESTRUGGLEISREAL

    I love the freshness of bergamot scent. I never carry any parfum or scented oil with me… I was addicted to Amber by Prada, but since I finished it and you cannot find it in Santiago I have started to use Agua Florida Peru by Murray & Lanman. It’s so fresh!
    curious note: shamans use it for spiritual purposes, so it´s a perfect 2 in 1 :-P

      I am also a big fan of Amber by Prada. I have two other scents at home and that is one of them so we must have very similar taste in fragrances, hehe :D

    I’m a bit of a fragrance hound- I love perfume and wear it nearly every day. I choose fragrances based on my mood- is that weird?

    This perfume sounds lovely!

      Definitely not weird, I think almost everyone does that. I am getting more into fragrances and it is such a nice surprise when I remember, lol.

  • Jessica (What To Style)

    This sounds amazing, especially because I rather flowers scents than the sweet ones! =)
