Does a woman with lots of scents like lots of lovers?
I have one, regular perfume. I’ve been with it for years. It’s part of my identity. It is synonymous with me, leaving an imprint where I go. It’s my old perfume. Then, a different perfume caught my senses. I wanted it. Something new. Different. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my old perfume. It’s safe and familiar, but I fancied a change.
I was having an olfactory 7 year itch. So I bought it. I keep it on a different shelf to my regular perfume, so as not to cause any upset...
I like having something new from time to time. it makes me feel slightly different. But I always go back to my regular one.
I know someone who has 17 different bottles of perfume and she is constantly looking for new ones..Picking and choosing on a whim, like a modern day dating app. (I feel exhausted just thinking about it)
I asked her if she likes lots of lovers. She laughed. I think in a way to say ‘how ridiculous’. Although perhaps she’d simply been rumbled…
