So what do you think? Are you interested in wearing actually wearing your perfume? I like the idea; it’s very old-fashioned. But, I actually like how fragrance works with my chemistry. That is what makes fragrance sensual to me. I like solid perfumes housed in beautiful packaging but they are usually enclosed. Would the filigree design cause these to evaporate too quickly? These are the questions that I must ask if one is to ACTUALLY wear their fragrance.
