Beauty in a Bottle
"Perfume heralds a woman's arrival and prolongs her departure."
Beauty is hard to describe. The very essence of what is beautiful varies from person to person, culture to culture and land to land. Perfume is similar to the idea of beauty. It is subjective. Perfume is a mystery, and its elixir is a marvel. The scent becomes its own magic. It is the lingering scent that creates a moment or recreates a memory of a person. Whether it is spice, floral or warm notes of lavender or vanilla, a scent can bring immense comfort and pleasure.
What does stand the test of time is a signature perfume. Perfume was created in 1340 for the Queen of Hungary. Thus, the story of fragrances commenced. Perfume remains at the top of everyone's list of "feeling good." Additionally, perfume sales in 2020 were close to $34B.
We all have experienced being around someone who smells divine. The scent is memorable and hard to capture in a bottle. Even in novels, one can read about a character, who was shrouded in a perfume creating a lifetime memory. Every scent is different on each person. Isn't that the point of beauty, to not be a carbon copy of another person? To stand out on your own as a special and unique individual.
Perfume is symbolic to the individual. A scent can define who you are with sultry undertones, floral delights, warm vanilla and other glorious flowers and spices mixed into a bottle. Just like us, different, unique, and vibrant. The beauty of living and life.
