The theme for this month is summer scents and for some reason my mind decided to go wandering… as it does when it gets hot and muggy. I began to think about all of the florals out there and then OUT OF THE BLUE, began to think about perfume superstitions. Don’t ask me why… Anyway, I found that were just too delicious not to share. After that, I’m going to offer some suggestions for summer perfumes I suggest you check out at the closest mall… any reason to go shopping (wink, wink)
First some superstitions…
*It seems that if someone gives you perfume, you should immediately give them something in return… even if it is just a few cents. The reason is that once the scent is used up, there is no longer a connection to that person and they too will fade from your life! Strange but true… as far as superstitions go!
*The perfume you wear on your wedding day should be as pale as possible. (I just remembered this because today I saw a fragrance that was almost black and well… as much as I like the fragrance, I don’t think that I will be buying it… for any day of the year. Funny how superstitions stick with you.
Now onto a few summery fragrances. I will end the post with a few more superstitions. ;)
Now… more superstitions… at the turn of the page. :)
*For luck, you should invest in a bottle of your birth flower scent. For me, that is Lily of the Valley… I have always loved that scent anyway ;) I don’t wear it very often, but I do like to scent linens with it.
*This one was really popular when I was a teen and our thoughts were constantly on boys lol… To dream of your future husband, you were supposed to put a little lavender in a handkerchief along with a nickel, fold the handkerchief to keep everything in together and slide it beneath your pillow. That night you should dream of your husband. Did I mention that this could only be done on October 31st? Any other night, it wouldn’t work. But come Halloween night, I would always forget lol…
