Would you change your perfume?

Would you change your perfume if your guy didn't like the smell?

When Paul and I met I wore Marc Jacobs Daisy and Calvin Klein Euphoria.  Out of the two Daisy was my absolute fave and I had just recently gotten it for Christmas from my sister Debra.  Paul absolutely hated the two scents.  If I wore it - he would say - yuck you have THAT on again.  At first, I thought - hey buddy deal with it - because I love this stuff.  But then I got to thinking ... I SHOULD care if he hates it.  Who wants to get cozy with someone that they think stinks.

So him and I went to the department store and we both tested some new fragrances ... he liked some that I hated ... I liked some that he hated ... then we found some that we both liked.  So I got those and gave away my Euphoria and Daisy.  I gave Daisy to a co-worker and every time she wore it I was like awe you are wearing (my) Daisy.  It was a little sad but what are you gonna do.

So what do you think ... would you change?
What have you ever changed for a guy?


  1. My husband hates some of the fragrances that I wear, so I just use those on days that he works because usually by the time he gets home it's either wore off or I've took a shower.

  2. Yeah I tried that but it would occasionally backfire ... so I just got sick of hearing about it. He wore me down I guess ;)


  3. Hmm I've never thought about this because Ronnie has liked the fragrances he's smelled on me. I'm sure he'd say something if he didn't like it but I think that he's just such an outdoorsy guy who shows up stinky and sweaty sometimes, that he just appreciates my not stinky, girl smell. Does that make sense? lol

  4. i would change my perfume for my man if he didn't like it because i want him to think i smell too and not smell bad and be turned off by me

    1. Exactly ;-) Sometimes it's annoying because I think ... oh I really like this but then I'm like wait he needs to smell it too before I buy it.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!


  5. I would probably have a similar response to you, but still keep it and wear it for myself. But there can be compromise in perfumes, just like in life!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
