Nobody wants to end up in the doghouse. Yet, I almost ended up in there when I forgot my wife’s birthday. I was saved, all thanks to my daughter. She was planning a surprise party and asked for my advice. I did not let on that I forgot the special occasion. But, now, I was frantically looking for a gift that could appease my wife. Asking around my female co-workers and wives of some good friends, I finally struck the lightning. Coco Mademoiselle for Women made by Chanel.
I was fretting a lot about getting something for my better half for his birthday. Finally, after a lot of thoughtful thinking and nail-biting sessions, I decided to get an Armani fragrance. Who does not like their men in Armani? Nobody!
If you have a child, you are probably all too familiar with that experience where your little one grabs a random item off a shelf and refuses to let it go. You end up having to buy the object, which ended up fascinating them so that they do not scream their lungs out. That is how I ended up with a 40 ml bottle of Polo Black by Ralph Lauren. The brand’s logo ended up enthralling my two years old son because he loves horses.
It was a couple of years ago when I used to smell a scent everywhere I went. It was in the shopping malls, elevators, corridors, doctor’s visits, university hallway, and dormitories. Surprisingly, even on the stands in our local stadium. Such was its widespread use. It was really fascinating, yet I was shy to ask women about their perfume. I thought people would find it weird and think I am a creep.
During my lunch hour, I was scouring through various websites to find a new fragrance for myself. I ended up on Tom Ford’s official website, where a picture of the perfume bottle of Oud Wood caught my eye. Going against all my beliefs about not judging a book by its cover, I immediately ordered a 100 ml bottle for myself, entranced by the picture of the intricately crafted bottle.
Working as an air hostess, you get to meet many different people on every single one of your journeys from one country to another. There are many people of various nationalities, races, colours, ethnicities etc., travelling across the globe, and you get to know a small part of them for the duration of the flight. Some of these people leave an impact on you because of their behaviour or personality. I had one such similar experience.
