I believe that every scent you own describes a phase in your life.
Take some of these for example (for those of you that know me, you'll probably get a good laugh out of this):
Dior Addict - strong, heavy vanilla with a hint of spicy. [smells like old Russian women... trying to smell more mature? during my rebellious, yonge&finch phase]
Vera Wang - smells like a "Princess", light floral and vanilla. [grade 12 phase, started cleaning my room and listened to bubbly music]
Marc Jacobs - daisies in a bottle. [also grade 12, loving youth and pretty flowers and marc jacobs]
Babyphat - self-explanatory: during my ghetto-fabulous, string-bag, babyphat phase.
Versus Versace - super super sweet, smells like candy and exactly like Cacharel's Amor Amor. [my first perfume ever, in grade 7 or 8]
Tommy girl - fresh, light yet sweet. [during my healthy and non-lazy, active days]
Britney Spears 'Fantasy' - cannot see it in this photo, but surely somewhere there. [Bam, 9th grade teeny-bopper / gina-bambina phase]
Take a look at your scents. What do they remind you of?
