What Is Your Chosen Scent?

My best Zoolander.

8 years ago, I decided that my scent would be Old Spice Pure Sport.

I don’t remember the exact moment I made this decision, but it was absolutely a decision I made. I wanted to choose my scent based on something I liked and something I thought others might like too.

So I bought Old Spice Pure Sport deodorant and Old Spice Pure Sport Bodywash, and I’ve continued to buy and use them ever since.

But then, a few weeks ago, I changed my mind. I wanted a change. Or, more aptly, I wanted an addition.

Because as much as I like deodorant and bodywash, unless I stick my nose in my armpit or I’m fresh out of the shower, I can’t really smell them (nor can anyone else). Scents have a powerful impact on me, and I wanted to add something more distinct.

I researched “best cologne” and “cologne women like most,” and I found one on a few lists that was available in a tiny size (cologne is expensive!): Versace Eros.

I’ve been dabbing on my neck every couple of days, and I like it! I’m not 100% sure that I’ll stick with it when I finish the sample bottle, but we’ll see.

Was there a moment in your life when you chose your scent? What did you choose?
