I never really understood the whole perfume craze. Most things smelled pretty and I would gladly wear whatever. I didn’t understand the idea of signature scents, and perfume samples were my least favorite kind. However, that all changed once I got engaged.
It didn’t happen all at once though. In fact, I think it all happened about a month before my wedding. In June sometime, it finally occurred to me that I didn’t know what perfume I’d by wearing to my wedding. This didn’t feel like a big deal to me, but it seemed like a big deal to a lot of the other brides I talked to. The more I thought about it, the more I realized I might appreciate a pretty scent in the hot July summer in Tennessee.
After this realization, I decided to take some time to go smell different perfumes and figure out what I liked. I quickly found out I wasn’t into overly sweet scents. I narrowed down my choices and made a final decision for my wedding. Ultimately, I was happy I did. Plus, it marked the start of a new interest of mine. It turns out that I think perfume is actually kind of interesting (wow, I love personal growth).
Recently, I received a sample of Pillowtalk Poet by Pinrose. It came on a wipe which made for easy application. Sometimes samples are a bust, but this one wasn’t! I absolutely loved it. The smell was so simple, yet luxurious. It felt like the perfect balance. It was something that I could see (or smell) myself wearing everyday.
Pinrose describes this scent as living in the floral family with keynotes of clove, musk, and ambergris. The online reviews don’t lie: this scent is a winner. Coming in at $65, Pillowtalk Poet comes in at an affordable price in the perfume world (in my opinion).
What do you look for in perfumes? Any suggestions as I dig into this new interest?
