My Life as Defined by Four Fragrances My Life as Defined by Four Fragrances

Are you an olfactory person? I catch a whiff of a fragrance and it instantly transports me back to a place and time. Love that. Sometimes, just for kicks (and an instant stroll down memory lane) I'll stop at a department store fragrance counter to get a spritz of a scent I wore years ago because, somehow, the various stages of my life are as clearly identifiable by the perfumes I liked at the time…

Certain smells can turn back time -- if only for a moment

My husband doesn't wear cologne. Not because he's too incredibly manly, but because he doesn't have a sense of smell. While that's weird (and kinda sad) for him, it's also a bummer for yours truly because scents are important to me. A whiff of a stranger's familiar perfume can take me back to a scarily specific place and time -- as can certain suntan oils, cooking spices and even random cleaning…

I'm a girl on the go -- hopping from one airport to the next, thanks to my job. So when I saw a Sephora vending machine in the Indianapolis airport, it was the equivalency of seeing the US Embassy when you're trapped in a foreign country.

Alternatives to Perfume: Smell Yummy Without Overdoing It Alternatives to Perfume: Smell Yummy Without Overdoing It

I couldn't breathe in the elevator yesterday morning. Why? Because the woman next to me was wearing way too much perfume. And worse, I'm pretty sure the scent was eau de Imposter (OK ... that might be harsh, but the smell annoyingly followed me through the rest of my morning). Either way, I've decided that this woman's perfume faux pas could have very easily been mine, so instead of waiting for…
