My neighbour had gone on a vacation with her family to Italy. She had requested me to look after their pet dogs, two Golden Retrievers that were very well-trained. I had agreed without a second thought since I did like pet dogs a lot. They returned from the vacation about a month later. Upon their return, she presented me with a black Bottega Veneta bag containing a fragrance named “Illusione for her.”
I enjoy having men woo me. Despite my redhead and green eyes, which always get me a lot of attention, I also use fragrances to attract the men’s attention. Call me an attention seeker if you like, but that is precisely who I am. I do not regret my choices, and I am definitely not ashamed of them. I have been an avid user of perfumes since I was very young. My first fragrance and all the necessary lessons were given to me by my dear mother.
Needing a change in scenario, I had packed my notebooks and textbooks up, got out of my dorm room, and headed off to a café near my university campus. I had been sitting there for about an hour and a half when she came in. A blonde girl donning a red crop top, a pair of whitewashed skinny jeans walked past my table when I got a whiff of her enticing fragrance. Dear Lord did it smell incredible!
In 1913, brothers Mario Prada and Martino Prada established the iconic Italian fashion house, Prada. They had started the business with their last name. It was a leather goods shop in Milan, Italy, which gradually became one of the most famed and powerhouse fashion houses globally.
Givenchy is one of the most renowned fashion houses globally, which started in 1952 by selling apparel made from raw cotton. Popularity allowed Hubert de Givenchy’s self-named French brand to reach new heights and expand its range of products, adding in collections of perfumes, cosmetics and accessories for both men and women alongside offering apparel to its customers.
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.
