I bought my first bottle of good perfume with money I earned working over Christmas, and, even though it was expensive, I've never regretted the purchase.
Which for me , is surprising. But wearing good perfume makes me feel polished and pretty, even when I'm actually nothing of the sort. Wearing Mary Kay perfume never made me feel grown up or mysterious or anything remotely resembling sophisticated. But this does.
Please excuse the green paint (not mold, thank you) on my hand. Which sort of defeats the whole purpose of wearing perfume and puts my classy level at zero. But I don't care. I'm wearing nice perfume.
