Sad Smelling

Recently, I was complimented on the way I smell. I suppose I did smell good – I was wearing Emporio Armani She, the same scent I’ve had since sophomore year in college. (Not coincidentally, I’m still on the same bottle I bought at Duty Free after a trip to Europe.)

I liked the smell of the perfume when I got it, and it does have an elegant, subtle scent. Maybe it’s the gardenia base. But I only wear perfume when I’m going out, and so often, the expectations and the reality of a night out don’t meet. So now Emporio Armani She just smells like disappointment to me now.

I would switch perfumes, but I’m sure the same thing would happen all over again.
