Boadicea The Victorious Complex EDP Perfume Review

Boadicea Complex EDP Perfume Review


I hate really certain thoughts that put people into boxes of rigid identities: introvert/extrovert, left-brain/right-brain, dog person/cat person and even city person/country person. But, I have found, and much of the struggle of adulthood is finding out what you want, that I am a city person. I fit into that stringent little box. Open spaces give me anxiety.
