On My Favorite Scent: Back to Kenzo

Kenzo is my first official perfume. I meant, the first perfume I had ever worn and I just fell in love with it. I had gone through the phase when colognes became part of my daily life and everyday bag (part of every teenage years, I guess?). I have this thing that I feel naked without a perfume on. Don't you feel the same way?

Next to Kenzo, I have used and worn the Heavenly Perfume of Victoria Secret collection. I had this guy coworker who loves the scent too much, that he always visited my desk to borrow the perfume bottle. He told me that a certain perfume is not for everybody, and Heavenly is just right for me. I wish I knew the reason, but he just told me that Heavenly has this characteristic the same as mine. And he said I have yet to figure it out. Although I love Heavenly too much, I just don't feel too sexy and comfortable wearing it.

If there is such a thing as an "ex" for perfumes, I have had only few (Ralph, Gucci Envy, Issey Miyake, Vulgari and Heavenly).

So now I am back to my own love (after what? two years?). I just love it's sweet, feminine scent; and it does not come too strong. And for reason that I have not found an explanation of, it seems that everybody loves Kenzo; with the first sniff from the bottle, Kenzo works its wonders to people.

I had used it several years back, and its scent works like a time machine bringing me memories and people of the past. Kenzo reminds most of my closest friends of me. Now, I want to give the new friends and people I meet a thing (or a scent) to associate me with, other than my towering height. I guess that's the true sense of chemistry.

Yeah, like a true love. There is always this one scent that is just meant for you. And Kenzo is meant for me.

What scent is your true love?
