When someone notices and comments on my perfume, I am always flattered. To me, it is one of the best compliments I can receive.
If you tell me you like my shoes or pocketbook, I will say "Thank you". However, if you tell me that you like the way I smell, I will say "Thank you" and I will wiggle in delight.
See the difference?
Even though it appears that every celebrity, and in most cases non-celebrity, has their name on a perfume, your scent remains as one of the most personal and intimate accessory you can choose.
Complimenting someone on their scent is such a subtle way to say 'I noticed you'. It means that you appreciated something about them that is not obvious.
When someone notices how I smell, I feel recognized, appreciated and special in such a wonderful way. Even if, truth be told, most times I simply smell like chocolate.
