Sweet Smell of Success

So the heat wave is back in Boston, and being from the north I'm not really used to sweating my boobs off.  One of the things people first notice about you is how you smell, and if you're at a new class, job interview, or just work, it's important to smell good.   If you ask me though, it's not just important to not smell like a butt, but also to smell pretty (it's subtle, but people subconsciously like you more if you smell).  It's been like that since cavemen days, men like pretty smelling women, hell even I like pretty smelling women.  I'll break down all my favourites for you and when I like them.

Chanel No. 5 || Clinique Happy ||  Japanese Cherry Blossom

Chanel No. 5
This is by far my favorite scent.  I've always adored this ever since I was a little girl.  Chanel No. 5 is a classic and always will be: my grandmother wore it, my mother wore it, and now I do.  However when you're a student it's a little inappropriate to wear on a day to day basis (and very expensive).  So I usually wear this on date nights, special events, or job interviews.

Clinique Happy
This is my usual day to day perfume.  It's not that expensive and smells lovely.  It's flowery, but not overpowering.  I wear this to class, work really anywhere.  If I'm wearing makeup then I'm probably also wearing this.  This is also a go to because I love Clinique makeup!  I always get their makeup during bonus days (tons of free stuff) and this perfume is an eligible purchase to get the bonus.

Bath and Body Works
This stuff is great for when you want to smell nice but don't really need to impress anyone.  I wear it grocery shopping, running around, sometimes even working out.  It's really cheap, and sometimes you even get it for free with soap from the store.  My favorite scent is Japanese Cherry Blossom.  It is a little overpowering if you use more than a little, so be cautious with this stuff.  In a pinch though, it is good for a Ke$ha shower (cover that BO!).  While I don't condone not showering, this will cover working out smells while you go to the grocery store.

What are you wearing?  Let me know :)
