The Lipstick League – Week of 8.8.11

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 14 - 2011

Question of the Week: – What perfume can bring back memories with just one sniff?

Answer: I bought Mr. L the original Chanel Egoiste when we first met many years ago and although the bottle has long been emptied, I’ve kept it for sly sniffs until I can get my hands on a replacement.  It evokes memories of holidays we took, meals we shared and films we saw when we were newly together.  Such a shame it’s scarcer than hen’s teeth nowadays.  Stupid Platinum version I DON’T WANT YOU!

    I bought Gucci “Flora” to wear for the first time on a Mexican vacation with my hubby. Every time I spritz it on now, I’m back in our room getting ready for a night out….
    And whenever I spray my daughter’s Love’s Baby Soft, I feel 10 again, too :)

    Oh my gosh. A whiff of Dior Miss Dior Cherie brings back memories to me, too! Amazing how perfume can do that, isn’t it?

  3. definitely Emporio She by Armani. it always reminds me of an amazing week spent in Milan <3.

    David Evans = Eternity for Men, and all these years later my knees STILL go weak whenever I smell it.
