19.03.2013 | 淡淡清香

[Volume 8 Issue 3, #1689]
我仲記得自己開始用香水係大學時期, 第一支香水係Tommy Hilfiger.. 之後就有咗用香水嘅習慣(就好似頭髮一定要執執佢咁), 亦都陸陸續續用咗好多唔同品牌嘅香水.. 我喜歡清淡/清新/有個性嘅味道, 熱買品牌或者果香/花香/粉香嗰啲我絕對唔會有興趣.. 仲有, 因為市面上實在太多選擇, 所以我習慣用完一支就轉其他牌子, 因此就通常都唔會買大支嘅香水.. 除非自己真係好鐘意個味道, 我先會考慮用第二次, 印象中用過兩次或以上嘅香水都唔係多嘅.. 其實我就話香水係好個人嘅, 有人認為用香水係一種禮貌, 有人覺得香水多餘又嘥錢, 有人認為香水可以增加魅力, 有人認為用香水係掩飾自己缺乏信心.. 你又點睇呢?? :)
i still remember i started to use fragrance during my uni days, my very first perfume was Tommy Hilfiger.. i have since then the habit of wearing perfume (like i must have my hair styled) and have tried numerous brands of perfumes in the market.. i always prefer those fresh and subtle scent, and never am i interested in those hot-selling or flowery/fruity/powdery type of fragrances.. also due to the many choices available, i usually change to new brand one after another, hence i rarely buy myself the large bottles.. unless i love the scent so much, i will consider using the same brand for the second time, there aren't much in my list though .. actually fragrance is very subjective and personal, some think it's a courtesy, some think it's a waste of money, some think it adds charm to a person, some thinks it's just to hide your lack of confidence.. so what do you think about fragrances?? :)

    1. So far I only used CK and Estee Lauder. I may change to other brands like you. I normally bought the miniature one. I bought at the airport Duty Free shop, 5 miniatures in one box, I might get a free clutch sometimes.

      Delete
    2. It is always good to smell nice all day long. I will put a bit when going to work, I will put more when going for function. Heheheh!

    3. I don't know the brand of my perfumes. What I mean is, I always use those sample perfumes which come in small tube. My hubb has at least 7 bottles of fragrance. He will bargains for freebies when he makes his purchase.

      I'm so pitiful, only manage to use free perfumes :(

      Delete
    4. The sampling tubes are printed with the name of the perfumes but Ah Hua didn't bother to look, aha!

    5. i am smelling good with my "La Bateleur" today too, hahaha!! i don't usually stick to the brand, because there are just too many choices to explore and to try right?? only those i super love, then i will make a repeat..

      well, i agree, maybe miniature is better, so that you can try on others faster.. and more importantly, miniatures are easier to bring around.. my perfume won't last long cos mostly are eau de toilette, so if can have a small bottle then it's good to spray again maybe mid of the day..

  2. My first perfume was cheapo type..enchsuntuer...is that the spelling? ?? Forgot

    1. I can't even recall my first perfume, haha! I used baby powder when I was younger, I particular love the brand Johnson & Johnson. It reminded me of my childhood years.

      Now I curi-curi use my hubb's fragrance :D

      Delete
    2. My first perfume is CK One. You all don't know. I was only of the sale promoter when CK One was launched in Malaysia. I was still a Uni student, I worked part time at Metrojaya Bukit Bintang.

      Then, when launching Eternity for Women, I worked part time at Sogo too during my Uni holidays.

      Delete
    3. haha, Enchanteur!! i remember that, a lot of my girl friends also using that as a start.. and i bet you used their shower gel and powder before also?? hehehe, i think quite a hit that time woh..

      Ah Hua, don't go curi DH's fragrance lah.. later you smell like men only and no men want to get closer to you.. ask DH to get you one bottle of feminine fragrance lah~~

      hey, Mak Yannie.. i think when you're in uni i must be in college days.. i always go Metrojaya and Sogo after class, i wonder if i've met you before, haha!!

    4. I prefer fragrance for men, not so musky and girly. No need to attract other men, can attract my MM alone can already la ;p

    3. Oh yes I am very sure that good smells attract good people! Bad armpit smells drive everyone away! Logic?

      Delete
    4. STP i love your quote today!! since I don't look nice, at least I can smell nice.. but this line is for me lah.. for you i think you should say "since i look nice, so i must smell nice also".. haha!! agree??

      haiyoh, i absolutely agree with bad armpit smells that drive people away.. i've got that many times inside the packed train, disgusting and horrible~~

      Delete
  8. I used to spray perfume every day but now getting lazy. Haha.. I like J'Adore from Dior, and Aqua de Gio from Giorgio Armani. But I think it's nice to be around people who wear perfume provided it's not overpowering :)

    1. Aqua de Gio is a nice one, very fresh and light.. that is one of my friend's "evergreen" favorite, so i refuse to use the same one, haha!! oh yeah, i also cannot stand those very strong and heavy scent from perfumes, please be moderate.. :)

    4. u can try this new brand. A friend's friend created his own perfume for sales. https://www.facebook.com/JoshLeeFragrances?ref=ts&fref=ts

    5. oh, too bad you are allergy to perfume.. and that bottle of perfume given to you during your 21st birthday.. aiyoh, i don't think you can use it anymore lah, the scent sure lari already after so many years..

      Delete
    6. Er... I think a person with bad BO is not suitable to use perfume. BO + perfume combination is worst! Must treat the BO issue first, just my personal opinion.

      Delete
    7. oh yeah, very true!! don't use perfume if you have bad BO.. and talking about combination, don't also combine a few fragrances on your body too, they will turn out to be bad..

  11. 我個人認為香水可以增加魅力,不過都要視乎香水嘅味道。太濃太俗氣反而會弄巧反拙。

  13. A colleague used to use one that smelled like the toilet-cleaning agent, Harpic! It was really tough on the nostrils. Luckily, she changed to milder ones or maybe used them all on the toilet after finding out the pungency that almost killed her colleagues. LOL

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For me, mild scents are my favourite. Stronger scents literally make me woozy that is why I am wary of getting into a car that has a strong air freshener.

      I think guys who use perfume are, shall I say 'sexy'?! haha.. Is it just me? :p

      Delete
    2. OMG!! harpic smell fragrance?? that is really bad.. haha!! but then i suspect that's because she has put too much on herself, supposed to smell good but too over already?? kekeke, yeah, a little hint of scent is actually sexy huh?? i do think so~~ :)

  15. Of all the brands you posted I LOVE THAT BLUE BOTTLE RALPH LAUREN'S POLO!!! I feel that is the only brand that connects the best with my frequency. It makes me relaxed, humble and be myself. You believe that??

    1. yes, i love that BLUE very much also.. i guess i have used three bottles of it so far!! just love that oceanic smell, so fresh and so sexy.. haha!! i just have to tell you, remember the L'Oreal warehouse sales i went last time?? they have BLUE at RM100 per bottle, the big 125ml bottle that comes with an aftershave too!! what a steal, Anay must go there this year~~

  17. I also like some ranges of Calvin Klein, Van Cleef Arpels and Chanel for Men. Too costly, so I still prefer the blue bottle RLP. Value for money!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Calvin Klein isn't the expensive range, i like the Truth from CK, very nice.. Chanel, have not used before but tried some at Sasa counter, not bad and perhaps can use that when i'm 40 later, haha!! yes, BLUE is worth, cos it's 25ml more~~

      Delete
  18. I remembered my first bottle was BRUT!!!!!!! I used that when I was in primary school and it cost less than RM10! Now with decades of inflations, the price is still available at under RM50. So pariah but it is from Germany!

    2. Ah Hua, Anay killed many girls with his perfume during his teen. Luckily you didn't meet him then, otherwise, you may be one of his ex-women.

    3. OMG Anay already started using fragrances when he was in primary school!! i didn't start until during college days lah.. BRUT, is that fragrance?? i thot that is some aftershave that you can easily get from the shelves at the pharmacy stores??

      no wonder Anay was a playboy when he was young.. sure he used lots of perfumes to con little girls, haha!!

  22. I remember when me & Zaini worked at the same office, I would know whether he's in the office or not just by the smell.

    He works on the upper floor and I worked at the banking hall.

    If he comes in, the staircase would smell of his perfume. ^^

    Issey Miyaki one. :)

    Replies
    1. aiyoh, Zaini put on a lot of Issey Miyaki?? hahaha.. but no doubt, i think Issey Miyaki is more to the long-lasting scent one.. i've used it before, but just twice (once of it was the summer edition lighter version).. but then i realized a lot of people also using, so i refused to use it again.. i don't like to smell alike other people lah~~ :D
