In the early winter season when the cold current arrives, in addition to adding clothes to keep warm, a small bottle of strong fragrance is essential for women and girls, preferably rose and jasmine fragrance, warm and rich, can lighten the mood and increase confidence. Women have used perfumes for a long time, and perfumes sway the sexiest side of women like smoke and dust. And perfume collection craze is also in the ascendant, a kind of perfume, a mood; a kind of perfume, a story; in the fragrance and enchanting, tactful life love.
I first started collecting perfumes, but I was actually attracted by the beautiful perfume bottles.
The beauty of perfume bottle:
The charm that is visible and tangible
I was in a surprisingly good mood that year. I tried many coveted luxury items. Soon after I bought the “soda bottle”, I bought KENZO’s “Crystal Flower” perfume, Anna Sui’s doll head perfume, and Shiseido’s drop shape. Perfume, love is actually perfume bottles. Looking back at the perfume collection two years ago, the smell of perfume is not the key point, the brand name is not cared about, and I have not bought the well-known Chanel “Fifth Avenue” at home and abroad, let alone Burberry’s college striped perfume-their perfume bottles are low-key and luxurious. , I didn’t notice; the taste at that time was obviously stuck in the introductory stage.
I learned later that there is indeed a genre among senior perfume collectors, who love packaging more than taste. As a collector said: “How can perfume not have a beautiful appearance? Just like how can an actor not look handsome? Most of the people who watch movies are women!” The charm of perfume, at least. It is visible and tangible.
Crossing the threshold of “vision”, I really began to enter the wonderful world of smell. Initially, only two types of “light incense” and “lucent incense” can be distinguished. The former has a light and elegant scent, taking the route of chrysanthemum and fruity aromas, simple and subtle, and like Chinese landscape paintings. The latter, taking the route of musk, sandalwood, and gardenia, is fragrant and protracted, reminiscent of such glamorous and sexy women as Sophie Marceau and Zeta Jones. The design of perfume bottles is generally exaggerated and splendid, which coincides with my hobby of buying perfume bottles.
front, back and middle
After becoming a mother, I seem to have an epiphany about the “pre-tune, back-tune and middle-tune”. The so-called top note is that the aromas of “new arrivals” are mostly lemon and citrus fruity aromas, which are intuitive and refreshing in an instant.
When the perfume settles, the “middle notes” are elegant, often with richer floral scents: jasmine, lily of the valley, rose and lilac, some sweet and pleasant, some rich and fragrant; the process is like tasting red wine, the entrance is changed After a few laps, I can still taste the taste of “Tang Dynasty”.
The “back notes” of most eau de toilettes are not obvious enough, but for strong fragrance perfumes, 30 to 40 minutes after spraying, the “back notes” arrive as promised: the strong floral and candy scents before, gradually transformed into restrained and reserved. The fragrance of oak, sandalwood and amber is precious and graceful.
Taste the three tones of perfume, just like reminiscing about life and savoring love, no wonder many women love perfume all their lives.
Yixiang Temple regaining confidence in the shadows
Before I collected perfume, I liked to pay attention to the fragments of perfume in literature: Chinese, such as Zhang Ailing’s “Lust Caution”: When Wang Jiazhi sat in the old Shanghai cafe waiting for the verdict of fate, he still did not forget to use the perfume stick. Fill the fragrance behind the ears, with the touch of gardenia, regain the courage to face life and death. In foreign countries such as “Memoirs of a Geisha”, Sayuri never forgets to drop a few drops of low-key western perfume in the lining of her suit before every time she goes to a banquet.
The culture of perfume can be fashionable, but also nostalgic. Literature and perfume have formed a relatively tacit interactive relationship: women who use perfume seem to be more flesh and blood, and their clothes and temples are full of moving femininity; even if they are artificial, they can make people feel pity and love.
Moreover, compared with gorgeous clothes, the role of perfume focuses more on inner strength and brings courage to women; perfumes are mostly sprayed on women to smell themselves, knowing how to appreciate and relax themselves, and they can conquer the world without a beautiful appearance.
Understand the perfume culture, practicality is not worth mentioning. In my opinion, the use of perfume can be innovative, not limited to traditional areas such as cuffs and necks. The dozens of bottles of perfume in my collection are rarely sprayed directly on myself, mostly on pillows. If people want to sleep peacefully on the pillow, the fragrance of flowers is of course conducive to sleep; moreover, the fragrance of hair is stained with perfume, and the fragrance of the room is full of fragrance, which is worthy of the name.
