Perfume

An Identifier

I scanned the glass shelf of a perfumery shop looking for that brand which fitted my budget and I couldn’t help but mentally label certain bottles with my friends’ names who use them often, if not all the time. Finally, I found one that gives a light and cool whiff. The purchase is completed and am happy. So you see, I am not inclined to constantly wearing a specific scent. At the moment, I have a few of them and I randomly choose whatever tickles my fancy, so to speak.

The smell of fish and chips whets my appetite. So does grilled fish. Although I am not a fussy eater, I struggle with the strong and penetrating  smell of  canned sardines in tomato sauce, especially if it’s just been microwaved! I don’t  understand how my son could eat that!

I like the following: scented candles, diffusers, scented plug-ins. My husband hates them! And oh, those car deodorizers! I find them missing every time my hubby borrows my car. And guess where I found them? They were stashed in the glove compartment or in the bin! I did ask why he finds them repulsive, he smugly said, ‘ I like fresh air’. Oh, alright.

While travelling on the highway, one relative said to me, ‘You’ve forgotten to take a shower again!’ Everyone laughed and I realised we were passing through a town where a thriving and massive poultry business is located.

We continued to travel away to where the fresh air reminded us of how amazing it is to breathe and live! Indeed, life itself is a lot like perfume!
