Old Blog posts, make me CRINGE

Oh my goodness, have you ever sat back and read some of your very first blog posts?  I decided to do that this morning and I honestly cringe.  I cringed so much I have actually deleted a couple.   I decided to keep this one though as I'm not actually sure what I am talking about here but it seemed quite popular back then, so for newer readers here's a taste of my madness in the early days.

Scent of a Man

'a bit woodier than i'm used to' 

I was speaking with my sister on Skype yesterday as she lives in Milan and we were laughing because she has recently returned from a holiday in Lake Como - she had forgotten to take her perfume with her.   So, she decided to bag the free samples in the hotel she was staying in and thought that they would do for a couple of days. 


After arriving home and finishing off the final sample that was safely stowed in her handbag she was thinking to herself, 'I really like that, I wonder if you can buy it somewhere?' She types the words ‘Cartier Declaration’ into a Google search only to discover that it is in fact a Cologne for men.

We both had never heard of it but she is happy because it is sold in all of the major perfume shops.  I, a bit horrified, said ‘you aren’t going to continue wearing it are you?’  She quite matter of factly replied ‘why not if it smells good? It is a bit woodier than what I’m used to but it smells fresh’.  Good for you sis, what a good attitude to have.  

  
Which has led me to this question…

Is it socially acceptable for women to wear men’s cologne? 


I personally love a variety of different colognes, however, the odd ‘scoosh’ here and there is ok and if my husband has been offshore for a while I like to spray my pillow with his ‘BOSS’ - I find this somewhat comforting.  In saying that, I don’t want to be walking around recognizably smelling like a man.

Perhaps this is a confidence issue? Am I too embarrassed?  My sister is right though, if it smells good then why not? 

I have a guilty secret…

My all time favourite cologne - which I sneak into his Christmas stocking, has to be ‘Eternity for Men’ by Calvin Klein.  Whether he likes it or not his annual bottle is always there, he can guess what it is before he has unwrapped it because the scent is on the wrapping paper from me smelling it before hand.

I could not actually pin point what exactly I love so much about this fragrance but it is so seducing and extremely sexy -  it drives me crazy.  I love how the scent lingers all day …… oooh goose pimples.  If I could spray this on myself and wear it all day everyday then I would – I confess…maybe one of these days I will be naughty and do just that. It would be interesting to know what men think of ladies wearing their colognes? 

Calvin Klein -  “Men have to be sensual without losing their manhood and power”

Since you now know my guilty pleasure, what is your favourite cologne and what do you like your man to smell of? 

Thanks for reading

....Yep Cringe......

  9. I love this post and I don't think it should make you cringe at all!
    I like my man to smell of soap. He wore cologne on our first date and hasn't done it again so our scents are never competing, haha.
