“I can't over-emphasize how important an exquisite perfume is, to be wrapped and cradled in an enchanting scent upon your skin is a magic all on its own! The notes in that precious liquid will remind you that you love yourself and will tell other people that they ought to love you because you know that you're worth it. The love affair created by a good perfume between you and other people, you and nature, you and yourself, you and your memories and anticipations and hopes and dreams; it is all too beautiful a thing!” C. JoyBell C.

Lately, i have been all about scents. I am shopping for a new signature scent.
I cant over emphasize or under emphasize the impact of the aroma you carry on your surrounding and the people around you?!
The right aroma has a way of changing an atmosphere.. commanding respect even.
Have you ever stopped someone to ask the name of fragrance they had on? OR even found yourself, describing to a friend the type of fragrance someone had on that day? there is power in scents.
The Bible says that our prayers and supplication go into the presence of God as sweet smelling incense.
Imagine that. Even our prayers have an aroma before God! Am telling you, there is power in scents.
Different aromas attract different things.
There is the aroma to attract money, the aroma to attract relationships, the aroma to attract the presence of God etc etc.

I watched the movie Perfume: The Story Of A Murderer.
This is the STRANGEST story script i have ever watched. 
Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, born with a superior olfactory sense, creates the world's finest perfumes. His work, however, takes a dark turn as he searches for the ultimate scent.
He falls in love with the scent of red headed woman whom he murdered by mistake. Her scent captivates him and gives him the strangest idea to collect body scents from red heads to make the ultimate scent. He embarks on a killing spree. Killing red heads, covering their bodies with oil & wraps them in polythene paper, scrapes off the oil. Melts it down decanting the vapor to make perfume." - very sick.
In my search for the best signature scent, i have come across words like: Notes, Noses, Designers..
I love fresh, floral, citrus, aquatic scents! One spritz and i'm transported to a chateau in the South of France, or the beach in Santorini..le sigh!
www.fragrantica.com is my go to site for everything scents. Especially reviews, notes, designers and noses.
Am looking something mature,simple, classy yet feminine.
The search is on.
