Dammit why can’t I smell like my perfume??

I like smelling pleasant. And most days I do, (I think)..

But no one has ever asked me which perfume have I had on. I have come across women  who, when go by me, make me go, “damn she smells good, wonder which perfume is that!!” and I then follows my struggle to smell and take in as much as as I can without looking like a creep with confused sexual orientation.

Yes people have told me I smell nice. My cousin once  told me I smelt nice & reminded her of a fruit she couldn’t recall the name of. (So much for researching & buying a perfume with top notes of lemon, middle notes of bamboo & base notes of cedar.. ugh.)

Also someone once told me I smelt like a baby (Instantly made me think of baby poop & wonder if the other person was also thinking of the same while telling me so. I hope not!) 

What do these women do to smell so good all day? How does one achieve that effect?

Do you take a mini bath in the perfume & finish half of it at one go? I love D&G’s Light Blue but there are 2 hurdles to that:  a) It’s expensive &  b) It’s expensive!

Are there any other secret pulse points that I don’t know of?? I diligently follow the rule of wrist, behind the ears, elbow and hair but no, the smell swooshes off in couple of hours. (I keep rubbing my wrist on my nose wistfully to take in the feeble remainder of the smell that was my perfume as consolation.)

Does one wear real cheap perfume & lots of it? (That might backfire if someone passes out with a finger pointing at you.)

Are there any god-created perfumes out there I don’t know of?? (God I hope not, I read way too many blogs & like to think I am well-informed.)

I keep practicing the line “Oh you like it? It’s D&G’s Light Blue, it’s awesome”  in my head. (I know I am weird.)

Mind you, this is not a post – just a rant in my head that is somehow controlling my fingers. The bottom line is I would really like it if someday a complete stranger (or a friend – beggars can’t be choosers) stops me and asks “What are you wearing??? You smell amazing.” I think I will lift my eyes to heaven, thank God mentally & sigh contently before proceeding with the much practiced “Oh you like it? It’s D&G’s Light Blue, it’s awesome”.. (I have a penchant for dramatics, as you must have deduced by now.)

I want to be the ‘Rose’ one stops in order to smell, literally.

I think I should stop now. This post has gotten too weird already. Hope you are smelling good wherever you are!
