Win Balenciaga Paris!

Balenciaga Giveaway

Win Balenciaga Paris!

I’ve been playing with this scent this past week, and it’s a sensual, sophisticated scent for spring. It’s a soft violet tempered by a woodier, muskier base. It’s a lighter scent that wears well throughout the day, but it’s not overwhelming. Definitely feminine but not girly or candy-sweet–grown-up without being totally on the edge.Β Β  And now, Temptalia is giving one away!

One (1) lucky Temptalia reader will win a bottle of Balenciaga Paris Eau de Parfum! (Retail value $130.)

Immediately, the demure violet note makes us think that BALENCIAGA PARIS is a light fragrance, as pleasant as sunshine. In BALENCIAGA PARIS, we find the first moments of April, floral breezes and blossoms from milder days. A spring-like feel: airy dresses and fleeting glances. A bouquet of violets also has an old-fashioned tone, the antique charm of a few dried petals that we find between the pages of a book by Colette, traces of memories, the work of art so fine that is the past

But soon, a peppery note reveals itself and swells over calm, mossy wood. Foliage that breathes in the secret hours of night. Then, another more nocturnal facet of nature expresses itself. A sensuality becomes clearer. The shadowy color of the liquid within already says something of its mystery.
It is a fragrance full of light with a few dark apertures. BALENCIAGA PARIS is a lovely paradox. It is a fragrance that becomes life, that melds with living. BALENCIAGA PARIS offers itself and guards itself…

I love wearing perfume because it makes me feel extra pretty and every time I catch a whiff of the fragrance I’m wearing during the day it puts a smile on my face. =)

I love wearing perfume because its the one thing people remember you by, your scent. It’s lovely to recall some one’s smell and reminisce.. and I love the new Balenciaga.

I love wearing perfume because it’s the most sensual thing you can put on- every time I smell my own perfume throughout the day it just puts that little extra swing in my step!

I’m a pretty quiet person, so when I wear perfume I feel it kinda amplifies my presence in the room. You know what I mean? It’s also a fun way to play “dress-up”–depending on my perfume, I can feel like Jane Birkin, Debbie Harry, or Marlene Dietrich on any given day!

I love wearing perfume, because it makes me feel extra girly and sexy and you walk by someone and you leave that lovely scent!!!!!

Personally, perfume is what finishes my outfit. It’s the same as misting your face with fix plus or a finishing spray after all your makeup is done. It’s a MUST no matter where your going!

Perfume is amazing because it can truly create a mood and an attitude. The ability to be sexy, playful, sweet or proper through perfume is part of the fun of being a woman!!

i think a perfume helps people get who you are. you should never judge a book by its cover but lets admit it, first appearances are everything. a perfume helps show the world what kind of personality you have; fun&flirty, simplistic, sophisticated, etc… it also helps people remember you.

i love wearing perfume bcuz im a girly girl & i love smelling pretty lol i love diff. scents for diff. moods & its like after you choose your outfit & do your makeup the perfume of your choice is the PERFECT way to finish! i also love wearing perfume bcuz i love when ppl tell me OMG you smell so wonderful what are you wearing? i love to share so they can feel Beautiful as i do*

I wear perfume because it makes me feel more confident and almost special. lol It makes me walk with my head held higher knowing I smell delicious. hahah :p

I love wearing perfume because I enjoy that luxurious ritual of dabbing it on the pulse points before I walk out the door, after putting on lipstick and accessorizing. It definitely makes me feel sexier!

I love wearing perfume because I feel like it’s the finishing touch that pulls everything together and tells me I’m ready to go! =)

I love to wear it because I love the look on people’s face when you walk by and they get a whiff of something that smells great!

i love wearing because it’s something that give me more confident and makes me feel pretty and beautiful even when my physical appearance does not. It’s something that set you apart from other as well, just like makeup I think..

Because every time I smell I think of how I would feel if I could only wear it. Like a woman. Sexy, worthy, proud.
I can’t afford this perform so I can’t say how I feel when I wear it but I sure want to.

i’m actually really picky about my perfumes bc i feel like it’s an extension of who i am and i want it to reflect my personality. i tend to remember people by what scents they wear, so i feel like it should be vice versa!

i used to wear it to cover up the smell of smoke that i was always self conscious about. now that i quit 2 months ago today, i’m proud to say i wear it just because i want to smell pretty! πŸ™‚

I have worn perfume everyday since I was 13 years old and got my first Avon scent (Honeysuckle, I think). I love the different moods a perfume can make you feel and convey to the world. Sometimes I am fun and flirty (a light citrus) and sometimes I want to be dark and mysterious (an oriental). Nothing beats perfume!

I love wearing perfume because it can totally help cheer me up when I’m down. I just dab on a little uplifting scent and things seem a bit rosier!

Perfume and scents in general can create a powerful memory. There are certain scents I smell and I am immediately back in time to when I’m 5yrs old and I am watching my mom getting ready for work or going out with her friends. I am wondering if that will happen to my daughter when she either she smells coconut lotions or some type of green or floral perfumes that she’ll think of mommy.

Perfume can lift my spirits and with a single spray transform the way I feel about myself that day. Depending on which perfume I wear, I can feel girly, or sexy, or capable, or free-spirited and at ease – or so many other moods! It is about so much more than just smelling good. I like to bring something pleasant and unexpected to the day – for myself or anyone who smells it. I love the complexity of perfumes – the way the scent changes different notes emerge the longer it stays on. In addition, we simply all would love to feel lovely, fun, sexy, or feminine, and perfume does it in a subtle way that clothes and makeup cannot.

I really love wearing perfume cause it feels liks it’s the last touch to make you perfect. I love the feeling of when you walk around and suddenly smell the perfume you wear, and it makes me feel fresh.

I love how perfume can take you to different places and times- it can remind you of places you’ve traveled, spark memories or even help make them. πŸ˜‰

I like wearing perfume because it makes me feel polished and refined. It’s something that you can change every day if you wish, and because it’s something that is smelt, in a way allows you to be more adventurus with the fragances. I think my favorite part is that i can change my perfume according to my mood, and time of year also: during spring/summer something fruity or floral, and in winter somthing with vanilla is really comforting, and something exotic during the evening

I like to wear perfume because it makes me feel good about myself, also I pick scents that either make me feel warm and comfortable or upbeat and fruity.

I love to wear perfume because it is personal. First of all, it’s all chemistry from how we are able to smell to how the actual fragrance is made and not only is this fascinating to me but ALSO, how the fragrance interacts with our own personal chemistry. Fragrances tend to smell different on different people and that is what makes a favorite perfume personal!

I love perfume! I have several bottles and I love matching my perfume scent to my mood, the season, or even my outfit and makeup! It’s just the perfect way to compliment and complete your look!

Perfume is the ultimate accessory. Image is everything, and who doesn’t like to smell good? Perfume can control our emotions and affect how we feel. When I wear my signature scent, I am brought back to the familiar and the memories associated with it. It lifts my mood!

I love perfume because of its power to help shape and even change how I’m feeling, and how I’m feeling about myself. More than anything else, I find it comforting, a touch-stone, and a way to always have something beautiful to focus on and experience, that I can bring with me.

Perfume makes me smile. Whenever I choose a perfume for the day – it’s the last thing I do in my routine, it makes me feel like I am complete now and nothing can go wrong. It’s a great feeling. πŸ™‚

I love to wear perfume because it makes me feel feminine and confident. I love that there are endless possibilites with perfume!

perfume for me is like the cherry on top. I feel like a scent pulls together an outfit, or makeup style, and if chosen wrong, can take away from it. (i’m also a fiend for cute packaging)

I love wearing perfume Because it alters my mood, as well as he moods of those around me.. I love that scent memory is so string, and that having a lovely scent leaves a mark on people.

I love to wear perfume because it makes me feel good knowing that I smell fabulous! And also, certain scents that I have bring me back to memories I have and people I loved.

More than anything else, my choice of perfume defines who I am. I absolutely love it when complete strangers say “who smells so good?” I never leave home without a scent, even if I’m going to the gym and just wearing a light body mist.

I love wearing perfume because I believe it can trigger a good memory later on. Like my husband wears the same one he wore on our first date and I swear it can sometimes stop us from getting into a huge fight because I smell it on him and instantly I am taken back to that great moment! sorry so cheesy but its true!

I love wearing perfume as it makes me feel more feminine and attractive. I know it is silly to think a smell makes me more attractive, but I love when it is subtle and someone special catches a whiff and loves the fragrance.

I love wearing perfumes because it makes me feel like a real woman. At times when I am really tired and don’t have time to put makeup on, one spritz of the right perfume can change my whole attitude, can give me energey, can make me feel sexy and beautiful. Perfumes have been used for thousands of years before us, and they are surely not going anywhere.
Any woman must find that special scent that makes her feel happy and beautiful. I hope that mine will be the Balenciaga Paris. πŸ™‚

I’ve always loved perfume ever since I was really young.. I started wearing perfume before I even started wearing makeup haha. I just think the concept of mixing scents together is very appealing.. I’m also a chemical engineer haha. I think finding the perfect scent to match your personality and having people remember you by a scent is such a great feeling

Perfume makes me feel sexy, or whatever mood I feel like being in! The perfect touch for finishing an outfit before going out.

I love to wear perfume b/c it smells great and i love to smell great! Esp since I work in a hospital around a lot of funky people,smelling my wonderful fragrance throughout the day helps to bring a pleasant scent to my nose other than the sick,(sometimes) smelly ppl I’m nursing to health.

I love wearing perfume because that’s something I’ve always done growing up. I can remember always wearing my mom’s perfumes. I think it’s by seeing her getting all pampered up that I grew up doing the same thing :p. Nowadays, it’s pleasant to have my own signature scent πŸ™‚

I love to wear perfume because it makes me feel pretty. I also especially like it when my boyfriend nuzzles into me. I know full well that he’s enjoying my fragrance. πŸ™‚

Because it can create an ambience for oneself. Depending on what you choose it can be sophisticated, flirty, sporty, soft and romantic etc. and I love wearing my perfume based on how I feel that day!

perfume makes me feel confident and sexy, I love it to spray it on for everyday so people compliment me that I smell good. it is my upgrade for outfits to look more dimensional.

I love to wear it because it makes me feel like I’m walking in a garden all day (yes, I favor the rosey florals!). I also love to wear it because it can distract me from the very foul odors that sometimes come up during trips through the NYC subway. Lastly, I wear enough rosey perfumes that whenever my boyfriend catches a hint of rose anywhere he thinks of me. πŸ™‚

i love wearing perfume because i love to smell good LOL, and when i find one i really like which is currently viva la juicy, i feel good cuz its my signature scent. its nice when i hug people and they always say “aww u smell so good!”
:]

I love wearing perfume because it allows me to emphasize the softer, feminine side of myself that society tries to subdue because we’re expected to be “strong” and “assertive”.

I’ve always enjoyed wearing different fragrances. Depending on how I feel, I try to set a mood for the entire day. So if I’m wanting to feel more confident because I’m going to a very important meeting, or if I just want to feel sexy for my husband. To me it’s more than just a fragrance. It’s an emphasis to my personality.

whoa…this is one contest I wana win!! Balenciaga is a luxury…be it purse or fragrance…Anything from Balenciaga has to be classy…would love to try this!!!

I love wearing perfume because it makes me feel good about myself, and I like seeing how the scent will evolve throughout the day.

I like to wear perfume because I think rule #1 for girls is to always smell pretty πŸ™‚ And you can change the perfume you wear to match your mood. Sweet, spicy, intense, demure, etc.

The perfume makes me unique, no matter what I’m using and if there are people with the same fragrance, because the smell is different for each person. So is like there is for each person a different scent in the same perfume! Is that why I like so much perfume, and wear them!

Perfumes define one’s personality like your choice of style in clothing and makeup. It completes my wardrobe and adds sensuality, sophistication or fun depending on my choice scent for the day/night.

I love and wear perfume because it leaves a lasting impression on those that you come in contact with. Whether it be a lover, friends, family or someone you simply bump into at the grocery store…if you wear the right perfume, nobody will forget you….or the wonderful smell that they caught a whiff of. Scent/Smell triggers memories……like Curve for men makes me think of my first boyfriend….he was a douche, but the smell I could not deny was awesome. I would wear Curve for men on the regular if it weren’t for the fact that I’m all woman. There’s a good example on how strongly a smell can leave an impression for years and years.

I like wearing perfume because it’s another dimension of you based on what kind of perfume you choose to wear. If you pick a strong, sugary perfume, I’d say you were a young, probably in middle school or high school. If you a choose a light airy floral scent, I’d say you’d older, heading for demure, probably in college and older. If it’s an aquatic scent that is just barely there, coy, asking for a second smell, I’d say you’re older.

Perfume becames another way to represent yourself and how people remember you based on what scent you wear. And it makes me feel confident that I smell nice and not overpowering. It makes me feel flirty, esp. when my friends or boyfriend asks me what I’m wearing. They notice these things!

I adore wearing fragrance. The thing I love the most is that when I smell it all the amazing memories of where I’ve worn it before always come back to me. Even if I’m not in a sunny mood then the fragrance will put me in a good mood thanks to all the great memories it evokes. When I’m selecting and putting on a fragrance for the day it’s like choosing an accessory. It’s a real part of my outfit that needs to match what I’m wearing, the weather and what “character” I want to portray that day! It’s such a crucial part of an ensemble! Like wearing the right shade of lipstick! x

This is an easy one: for me, different persume represents a different mood and a different side of me. Sometimes I like to be sweet and girly, yet sometimes I want to present myself as more sophisticated and more “grown-up”. To put it in a very scientifical way, scent stays the longest in a person’s memory and is always the first thing that catches others’ attention. So, definitely owning a range of different scnets and perfumes at the same time!

Makes me feel feminine and sexy, and I love when my husband hugs me and sniffs my neck and tells me I smell good. Gives me butterflies!

I love to wear perfume because it can convey how you are feeling and also bring back memories. I wore a scent for my wedding and when I smell it I always go back to that day.

I love to wear perfume because it completes my outfit. It makes me feel sophisticated and I love catching whiffs of that pleasant smell during the day.

I love smelling each stage of the perfume as soon as it hits my skin, after it has settled and when it just leaves that faintest hint of scent on my skin.

I love wearing just a tiny squirt of perfume somy boyfriend notices when he hugs me and doesn’t know if it really is perfume, my hair, or if I just really do smell that good. πŸ™‚

I wear perfume because it adjusts or heightens the mood I’m in. If I’m down and need to feel sexy, I use this scent. If I’m awake and optimistic, usually a citrus scent wins. :] Love it.

i love wearing perfume because it comforts me, makes me feel like a lady, confident when greeting people and special when my husband likes the scent because he doesn’t just smell the scent, it’s part of me.

I really love the design of this perfume bottle – have even done a project at university based on it! As well as a beautiful scent, of course πŸ™‚

Wearing perfume adds to a persons sensory reminders of you. Like when you smell the fresh cut grass and remember a day long past and all those feelings from that day come flooding back.

I love perfume because it can portray your mood! I may not have the most exciting wardrobe and shoes, but perfume can make me feel glamorous, sexy, fun, playful, mysterious, etc. For me, perfume is a great way to learn about my personality!

I love perfume for many, many reasons however for me the scent I wear is mainly dependent upon my mood. I am a propaganda girl or an editorial junkie, so I always look to see how the fragrance company advertises their fragrance. I tend to coordinate the scent I wear with my mood and the seasons. When I feel tired (like on Monday or Wednesday mornings) I want a fragrance that’s light and airy or fresh (for me that’s Chanel Chance or Narciso Rodriguez For Her Perfume), there are other times when I feel classic and elegant (for me Chanel Cristalle or my new love Dolce & Gabbana The One). If I’m feeling sexy and seductive Michael Kors Very Hollywood and Tom Ford’s White Patchouli were very nice for the fall/winter months even Miss Dior Cherie was fitting on me. Whether I want to feel fresh n clean, girly, and plain or Divalious there’s a scent out there and I do have many but always dependent upon how it β€œtakes” (for lack of a better term) to my chemistry and the mood I want to exude…lol

I love scents… I love how a scent can differ based upon one’s individual body chemistry and how they leave a lasting impression upon leaving a room or in some cases entire. For my hubby and me it’s like apart of us and included in our daily hygiene… (We shower… we spritz something on lol!). I’d like to believe it’s has something to do with a mood or the feeling it brings…I really don’t know but whatever it is I fall for it every time!

I love wearing perfume because it makes me feel very feminine and I love smelling nice scents through out the day! I also love it when people walk passed me and I can smell their lovely perfume! πŸ˜€

I love perfume because I’m really aware of my other senses, but smell seems to get neglected a lot. So it’s really fun to indulge my nose with some great perfume in the same way I’d indulge my sense of touch with a bath or sight with a trip to the museum.

i love wearing perfume because it just brightens my day. you get a little whiff of it randomly and you can’t help but smile and be happy.

I love wearing perfume because weather is 1000.00, 130.00 or even 15.99 I can rock it…. πŸ™‚ just like Make-up.(meaning does not have to be expensive) .. you can make the most of everything (even perfume) if you pair it with a nice lotion (it works) really…and since I have no credit cars I have not been able to treat myself to such a pricy pretty bottle… CASH IS KING (whatever) “deep roll of the eye”…. lol

If I’m not wearing perfume, I feel unfinished. I love having signature scents that fit my mood, and brink back so many memories.

I love to wear perfume because I love scents. I have a strong sense of smell, and I always want my house, my car, and my body to smell good. I’ve always worn perfume (since I was 7) and feel incomplete if I left home without wearing one. I also think that perfume is your signature scent. Whatever perfume you are attracted to and how it mixes with your body chemistry makes it your personal scent. It’s what you choose to smell like and what announces your presence. Not to mention, what people may remember you by πŸ™‚

Probably the only guy throwing down here, haha! But I love to wear perfume because its enlightening and more peaceful than cologne. Its adds a nice touch to the balance between masculinity and femininity.

i think perfume reflects the personality of the person wearing it, if you’re fun and flirty generally you’ll go for a perfume that’s very similar πŸ™‚ I think that perfume can make a girl feel sexy it gives off a certain attitude and flair that nothing else can do! It is also a symbol of your identity, people may know you through your scent (signature scent!). Perfumes also have the ability to perk you up on the darkest of days! I have yet to find a perfume that perfectly matches my personality and would love to give the Balenciaga Paris a try, maybe it will be my signature scent !

I wear perfume every single day. I love to wear it because it makes me feel good and clean and also like someone said, it’s the perfect finishing touch.

Thx!!

I love to wear perfume because everyone loves to smell good! My different perfumes are also worn based on the weather, my mood, and events throughout the day πŸ™‚

I never leave the house without perfume. I wear a different scent every day. I just love getting a whiff of something so good & realizing that it’s me! Plus it can lift my mood. Something light & flirty for spring or something musky & sexy for fall/winter πŸ™‚

I love to wear perfume, or any faint scented product, because it’s intimate. As long as you can’t smell someone’s perfume five feet away, it’s very personal; when you brush up against an attractive stranger, when you are in close contact with a loved one, that’s when the scent should be noticed. Just something very.. lovely about it!

I love wearing perfume because I love scent! I have a very strong sense of smell. I can smell a persons perfume and name it. Its amazing how perfume gets into your subconscious and brings back memories! I love it! Scent is unique and the same perfume can smell completely different on someone else! Amazing!

Your sense of smell is so powerful. I love that you can wear a scent you haven’t worn in a while and be remeinded of good meories or someone you may be missing in your life.

I think perfume does a number of things to a person. It makes you smell good and can be so memorable to other people who smell the perfume. I love how perfume can make me feel more sexy and feminine.

aparently it helps you pass exams, i.e if you wear a certain perfume while revising and then wear the same one while doing the exam the knowledge should come flowing back, does kinda work

Being a working mom of two girls and running all over the place, wearing perfume just makes me just a bit more prettier and girlie.

I love perfume because it sometimes really expresses your mood that day or change your mood. From fruity and sweet when you’re in a happy mood to spicy and sultry when you might be in a sexy mood πŸ™‚

I love fragrance as they have such power over people, they bring back memories; and no matter what I’m wearing or what state my skin, hair and nails are in – I feel sensual and confident with a great fragrance on.

I love the nostalgic experience associated with scent. I keep bottles of my grandmothers’ and mother’s favourite perfumes. One sniff and you’re immediately brought back to a moment or memory. Its an olfactory trip down memory lane for me.

I have a lot of perfume, I do not have a signature scent. Depending on my mood thats the scent that I wear. It makes me feel sexy,self confident, and polished.
I love it.

I love to wear perfume because it makes me feel pretty and feminine. Most of my perfumes have a special meaning to me, so when I wear them, the scent is a reminder of a special event in my life.

I wear perfume to complete my look. It also gives a personal boost of confidence. It doesn’t matter if anyone else can smell it, it just makes me feel better if I can.

I love to wear Perfume because it makes me feel well put together and it finishes a look. Another reason is whenever I wear perfume and someone goes What sent are you wear? it just makes me feel good about myself. I also love that there are many sents of perfumes out there that you can always fine one to fit your mood.
πŸ™‚

Perfume transports me; it can transform a gloomy winter day into something new and sparkly all together for a few instants.

I love perfume, not just to “smell good” but to fit my mood that day. I have quite a few full bottles, and some sample vials, and I change up what I wear pretty regularly. It’s sort of how I am with my makeup; sometimes I “fit” the season, but other times I go for comfort scents or chase a particular feeling or evoke a memory.

My grandma used to wear Balenciaga’s Le Dix back when I was younger, and I’d always take long sniffs from her bottle. I wonder how this new one compares?

i like wearing perfume because not only does it smell good but it’s also funny when my friends know my perfume scent so well they can tell when i walk in a room.

I love that I can express beauty not only through makeup but with a scent! It’s hard to find a good perfume though, I have been using the same 3 for years!

i love perfume because depending on the scent you can be fun, sexy, flirty, or sophisticated — it enhances your mood and those around you

I love to wear perfume because I feel mysterious and sophisticated when I have it on. I also like the ritual of picking up the bottle and spraying the perfume on, it makes me feel feminine and alluring.

I feel ladylike when I wear perfume. I’m usually a pretty casually dressed person, so when I DO dress up, I like to go the whole way and spritz some perfume on.

I love wearing perfume because I think it really just completes a look (oxymoronic as that may sound). Scent also evokes so many memories for me. πŸ™‚

Hello, dear C.! πŸ™‚

I personally can’t leave house without wearing a perfume, because perfume is a part of my image.
People associate me with my perfume and vice versa.

Besides, different perfumes can be used for particular perfumes – sometimes to get in the romantic mood, or to blend it during a serious business meeting, sometimes to just calm down and relax. πŸ™‚

Perfume is a part of who you are. πŸ˜‰

I love wearing pefume cuz’ I associate the smell of perfume with my mood. Like when its summer i like to smell of flowers, tropical and fruity.
When I’m on a date I like to wear something more sensual or sexy

good smells just make me happy.

Perfume adds something to anything you’re wearing, whether it be makeup, clothes, etc. It shows that you care about how people percieve you. It shows taste and shows willingness to please yourself and the people around you with scents.

I love to wear certain scents because they take me back to places or people in the past that I miss. I wear other scents because they make me feel good about myself – even when I’m not feeling well.

I love the way perfume can make me feel girly and sexy just by the smell of it. It can give me a little boost of confidence when I need it!

I love wearing perfume because it completes an outfit, because it sets the tone for the day, because scent can trigger strong memories–perfume reveals intimate qualities of our character to the world, is versatile yet invisible.

I love perfume because you can change it easily depending on your mood. Just spritzing some on can alter the course of my day for the better!

My memory is in my nose. Anything I wear or have worn perfume-wise reminds me of different times in my life. Wearing/having worn scent is making memories!

Perfume puts the finishing touches on any look! Whats better than just looking fabulous, than looking fabulous and smelling great!

I love to wear perfume because it makes me feel more confident about myself. I’m so paranoid about smelling bad that perfume becomes my security blanket!

Perfume is honestly the best step to feeling more confident. It can be combined with any look, feel, time of the year and instantly, you have a certain bounce in your step that you didn’t have before!

Perfums are always part of a moment in my life. Moments of hapiness… moments of sadness. But always part of me and my life . I love them, and I love each moment they bring me back.

I love the sense memories that perfumes remind me of when I wear them…where I was, who I was with, can all be brought back by a smell.

I love to wear perfume because it makes me feel feminine and beautiful. One spray can make me feel mysterious or special, and it can change my whole outlook on the day πŸ™‚

I love perfume and treat it as an accessory to an ensemble. It is the finishing touch, right next to the earrings, that is.

I love wearing perfume because it’s one signature piece/scent that you can have besides accessories!

Also, I love wearing perfume because it usually brings out good memories! πŸ™‚

I love wearing perfume because it feels like the perfect finishing touch, and because I love to catch whiffs of it throughout the day as I move about.

I prefer wearing perfume most of the time,and I’m involved in manufacturing it too!
Perfume (scent) essentially binds to olfactory receptors in the nose (nasal epithelium) from where the receptors send signals up to the olfactory bulb. The scent effects the limbic system (emotions and memories) and cortex. So in a nutshell scents can effect physiological processes long term.
And that’s why I like wearing perfume, alters my mood and emotions!

Love wearing Eau de Parfum especially because it completes me before i head out the door. Dont feel fully dressed till i spritz a little. make me feel good. One little luxury i like to indulge in.

I love wearing perfume in my hair. Others don’t notice the scent as you walk up to them, but they get a whiff of it and remember you as you walk away

I love wearing perfume because it makes me feel confident and pretty knowing I smell good…I like to get “whiffs” of the good smell throughout the day:)

Hello Christine Thank you for this opportunity I would love to Have this Perfume is always the #1 Beauty finishing touch makes any women feel extra sexy no matter what they are wearing or have on oxox Melinda

I love wearing perfume because it always triggers some of my fave memories and always gives me a little lift. Even on the worst of days.

I love wearing perfume as a way to reflect how I’m feeling. And if I’m having a bad day, wearing a nice perfume can cheer me up. πŸ™‚

I love wearing perfume because it makes me feel beautiful knowing that it’s like the finishing touch after my outfit, makeup and hair when I go to school. Plus, smelling nice never hurt anyone.

I love wearing perfume because for me, scent is often tied to memory. Just to smell a familiar smell can take me back years, reminding me of times and loved ones gone by. When I was in fourth grade, I found an old bottle of perfume that had pretty much dried up. When I smelled it, I could remember smelling that scent while nuzzling my great grandmother’s neck. What was remarkable about it was that she passed when I was 4! I didn’t even know it was her perfume bottle until I opened it.

I love the smell of a beautiful perfume just the same as anyone, but my favorite thing is the way certain scents bring back memories for me, big or small; it can be like a tiny moment of meditation.

i like to wear perfume for a lot of reasons, though mostly because i like to smell and be different from everyone around me in some way, and because i don’t have to worry about smelling bad if i put on such good smelling perfume :]

Because it’s like a signature and it’s expressive. You can catch a glimpse of someone’s personality by their perfume.
