Even if you don’t like them or plan to wear them.
I dreamt of Chanel 5 last night, and how it smelled great on a woman in my dream. And then (still in the dream) I wanted to try it on myself because I wanted to remind myself of how it smelled. Now I want to do it for real.
Didn’t get to do it in my dream but it got me thinking.
Should I (as a retired perfumista 😀 ) have classics in my collection even though I know they are not really what I would wear?
Because having them would give me an instant reminder of what they smell like and why they are classsics. I would basically need only samples or miniatures for that purpose.
What do you think? I’m leaning towards yes.
The more complicated part is which perfumes would those be? Some of them are so changed from their original formulas that they don’t count, some no longer exist which makes having them an exercise in futility, and what actually constitutes a classic nowadays? A cult following?
I wonder what are your thoughts on the subject and which ones would you recommend?
I do think I’m fine with the Guerlains though. 😀
