"Obsession" was my first real perfume love. When it was new on the market I found it classy, sexy, unforgettable and then there was this scented strip in a VOGUE magazine. In short : to my teenage nose it was heaven.
Obsession was my signature scent for at least a year, then I got tired of it as I really used a lot and it began to smell different to me.
Another perfume love I will always cherish is "Opium". The good old Opium which has been heaven or hell to so many noses and over decades and generations. What a blast of exotic notions - if you wore it you needed guts. I had...a little
As a teen it amazed me but I was also frightened of that mighty queen of spices and resin.
"Poison" Yes, another 80s flashback comes to me the very moment I have Poison in my nose. Even the current formulation still has a tiny bit of that huge, loud boldness that I already adored in my pre-twen years. Of course, I was too young for such a scent but I did not care. I especially loved the Parfum de Toilette.
Even with a changed formulation I cannot deny their importance which lingers in my memories. Lucky you if you still own a bottle of the treasures you adored many years back
In my later years for some time I adored "Eternity" and other rather fruity-floral lightweights, I guess I was still looking for my inner self (and that one never, ever is an "Eternity" girl ! *g*).
Eternity was my favourite scent as a twen. I still kind of like it but it just is not me at all. Not anymore. Nonetheless, the memories are still connected to Eternity. Memories of some love stories and of coming of age a bit more.
