If so, when do you wear it? Are you an everyday wearer? Or a special occasion-er? Or never?
I have this hang-up on perfume now-a-days. I wore it occasionally when I was single. But mostly I wore it when Patrick and I were dating, cause I loved it when we were cuddling and he'd comment, "You smell so good!" Yeah baby, instant confidence boost. :) But, even then I tried to keep it light, cause I didn't want to walk around in a cloud of smell, even if it was a nice smell. (Like the elderly lady who leaves a trail of her scent when she walks out of the room or high school boy who is trying WAY too hard to be hot...)
Then after we got married, when I worked as an aide in a Jr High, then as a Jr High/High school teacher--I felt weird wearing perfume. Like, seriously--I'm not trying to smell nice or sexy for tweens. I wanted to smell neutral: in other words, have no smell at all.
But after a couple years of shunning perfume, I'm totally out of the habit. Now and then, I'll remember to put a bit on when we go on a date (I know, I know, "Date? What's that?" Ha...) and Patrick's like, "Wowza! You smell nice!" Makes me feel pretty much like a sexy beast.
I want to remember more often, cause after you get married and real life hits, it's inevitable: you are bound to experience some less-than-savory smells. I mean...Unless your feet never stink, your breath is minty fresh in the morning, and you have flawless digestion, it WILL happen.
So, it's nice when I can smell utterly fabulous to my husband. And when he wears his cologne? (like twice a year, ha!)...Wowza. I like. :)
If you are married, would/do you wear perfume to work or Girl's Night or a church party? Is that weird? Cause it's not like you're not trying to smell attractive to your friends/co-workers. Or for you, is it more about feeling pretty for yourself, rather than attractive to someone else? For the single ladies out there, do you wear perfume on every date? Do you wear it every day? One thing's for sure, perfume comes in handy when I didn't shower that day and I'm self-conscious...ha!
I'd love to hear your perfume philosophies and wearing habits. Also, if you do wear perfume, what kind do you wear?
