I can't stop thinking about him...
Over a year ago, I ordered a series of scent samples, including the Early Roses by Téo Cabanel. The fragrance pyramid just sounded wonderful and there was nothing in it that would bother me.
It was Friday evening, I was looking forward to the weekend and to testing the scent samples. Before I went to bed, I took the fillings out of my pocket and tested one of them. The first sample that fell out of the envelope was Early Roses.
I sprayed it on my wrist, smelled it and was totally horrified, because I smelled mainly the hot pepper! There were some flowers around but the pepper was very dominant.
I was shocked and horrified by the strong peppery and biting note and thought to myself - no, this is definitely not my scent! - and threw the rest of that scent sample in the trash... (stupid nut). Disappointed by the perfume and exhausted by the week I went to bed and just wanted to sleep.
The next morning I thought to myself - where does this smell come from?!? - this time in a positive sense! I was awakened by a gentle rose fragrance that was so wonderful and irresistible that I couldn't get enough of it. I sniffed my wrist in bed for a while and found that it was the same perfume that I had tested the night before! Overnight the roses and the jasmine on my wrist unfolded completely and I could only see them in the morning. There was hardly any spicy pepper left.
I am still annoyed that I acted too hastily and just threw the sample away and I can't stop thinking about this perfume ever since. I should have just given this wonderful fragrance more time...
That wasn't love at first sight. At first I just wanted to run away. But then I was awakened by him as gently and wonderfully as never before by anyone.
With the next fragrance sample order I'm on it and it's my turn to order Early Roses again and who knows... maybe Téo and I will become something after all! :)
