The power of perfume should not be underestimated. It can touch our emotions and help us form memories, like when we smell cookies, which take us back to our grandmother's kitchen. "When perfume has the ability to provoke emotion, it becomes a part of our lives. It becomes a part of the personality with which others connect us," journalist and author Claire Bingham told Vogue.
The drama club in my high school had organised a play. I was a part of the drama and had bagged a role in the play. We had spent over a month rehearsing one of Shakespeare’s famous plays, The Merchant of Venice. Everything was organised by the members of the drama and the teachers, along with a few volunteers.
I had been working as a middle school teacher for three years now. Every year, the students here observed Teacher’s Day to show their appreciation for the entire staff. Gifts, flowers, chocolates, and presentations were a common occurrence on this day. This year was no different. The school was decorated in rainbow streamers and balloons with banners reading, “Happy Teacher’s Day.”
I had made a rather fruitless trip to the mall to purchase yet another bottle of my favourite perfume, Prada L’Homme, only to discover it was out of stock. Quite disheartened by that information, I decided to blind buy the next men’s perfume my eyes landed on. That perfume happened to be a Boss Bottled by Hugo Boss.
Perfumes have existed in the history of mankind for thousands of years. Some sources claim that they are over 4000 years old at least. Although they have a long-standing record of their existence, most people could not afford scents in ancient times due to their expensive nature. Even today, many perfumes are significantly costly and beyond the reach of a regular household. There are more affordable perfumes available today to make them affordable for all.
