… my atomizer.
You know how I don’t consider myself to be a lady, yet adore lady-trappings? Yeah. It doesn’t get much more lady-poseur than an atomizer, does it?
But here’s the deal: I have long been a member of the Aveda rewards program, and one of the perks is a “customized” bottle of perfume every year during your birth month. It’s not really all that customized, since they’ve got a fleet of six or seven scent blends to pick from, and you’re not allowed to tinker with them. But that suits me fine, since pre-blended scent numero uno is basically my IDEAL: Citrus-y and spicy, nice and warm, fresh, light, and lovely. So every January I swing by for my vial of perfume.
And then I stash it away and forget it exists.
I stumbled across a photo of an atomizer in some magazine or other back in early spring, and thought, “YES! That’s it! If I have a pretty spray bottle on my dresser, I’ll remember to actually WEAR my perfume.”
So I ponied up the whopping $18 to secure the atomizer pictured above and for once, my scheme worked. I love looking at my darling little old-fashioned lady-relic, and I actually DO remember to spritz most mornings.
I realize that women who love perfume often love the bottles as much as the scents, and there are some beautifully designed perfume packages out there. But if you get a custom blend, or hate the bottle but love the scent, maybe YOU’D get a kick out of an atomizer, too.
