Primer Nine

Light shines through a sapphire blue perfume bottle

It’s day 9 of the Willow Finishing Course Primer; how’s it going for you? (Hey! Are you new? Start here.)  Back in the very first post on this blog, I mentioned that perfume has a magical quality to it.  Done wrong, it turns the wearer into a reeking annoyance; many times have I wandered about my day with an uncomfortable feeling about how powerfully I smelled. Still, perfume done right is a fantastic thing. It’s sensual. It’s feminine. It’s oh-so-ladylike. When you find the scent that’s right for you, it can become your olfactory calling card. But you must, absolutely must wear only the tiniest bit.  Have you guessed what our 9th habit is? I’ll bet that you have.

It’s this: Wear a dab or a spritz of perfume.

Add this to your morning routine. Invest in a good quality, non-obnoxious perfume and let it linger on one of your pulse points throughout the day. I particularly love the scented essential oils put out by, but you might find that Chanel No. 5 or another wonderful-smelling perfume is the right way for you to go.

Have fun with this one, ladies.

  1. I’m at nine points for the day; so far, so good!

  2. As a hairdressers I am subjected to everyone’s fragrance, on top of products fragrance. And in my hobby job, teaching yoga, they are a big no no. I will switch to lavender soap. *:)
    So 8 for today. And a trip to get new soap.

  3. This is a great course! I always feel so much better when I smell nice.
