Perfume! Perfume! Flair for Great Scents!

September 30, 2011

I have been asked several times to blog about what brands of perfume that I prefer.  I must confess, the love of perfume was passed down to me by my late grandmother, Evelyn Roman Slagle.   I remember visiting her house, as a little girl, and, I would stare and stare at her many perfume bottles.  She was such FUN…she would allow me to sample the different scents.  She always smelled so good!  She loved perfume and, now, I am carrying on the tradition.  



These days, my 6 year old daughter, Brooke, gazes at my perfume collection and, will often ask me if she can have a squirt out of one of the bottles.  Remembering myself as a young girl, and, how much I enjoyed my grandmother’s perfumes, I always tell her “of course”.  


Here is my collection of perfume…I truly enjoy switching around and wearing every scent.  I love the variety…some days, I even, mix two at once.  This is a fun way to experiment with fragrance. 

My perfume ‘stash’

My Top Ten Favorite Perfumes of the Moment:

  1. ‘Quelques Fleurs’ by Houbigant Paris (*I have been wearing this since I was a senior in high school)….divine!

Perfumed body powder is another thing my grandmother always used.  My current favorite?  …none other than, by Chanel: ‘Coco’.  I love to use this after a good bubble bath. Treat yourself to this fabulous luxurious body powder.
