I am not properly dressed without my perfume. It makes me feel ready in the way other things – heels, lipstick, jewellery – work for other women.
I have risked missing trains to run back in the house if I have forgotten to spritz. Wearing it has made me feel sexy at times when looking in the mirror didn’t. It provides a flourish of femininity even when I am dashing around in jeans and Converse.
I love the ritual of layering scented lotion and perfume. I love breathing the last traces of it as I gather up my clothes. I love that flip in your belly when you roll over in bed, catch their scent on your sheets and are transported back to a moment.
Names echo the language of sex – Allure, Reveal, Touch, Intense, Pleasures, Euphoria.
Some of the bottles can be pretty suggestive too…
