I remember this particular day when I was a kid. I was out for a birthday party, I returned home all excited, just to have my mum bless the gift pack and I could go ahead with my smarties and things.
Just as soon as I stepped in the living room, my mood changed as I was sure I had missed my regular crisp 20naira notes (about five pieces). Chicken change right? But it meant a whole lot then joor. Fact was I never even spent them, I just loved checking them out under my pillow every morning until they’ll develop wings and flew away one after the other.
So mum asked:
Mum: What’s wrong with you?
Me: Aunty came here today, I still smell her perfume..
That visitor that you just know by their perfumes when they come around. Does this ring a bell? No?
Okay, have you ever tried so hard you creep very silently just to cover a friend’s face from behind and in 5seconds they can tell its you? Yes! This sounds familiar.
Although in some cases, signature scents could act as an ‘ALAKOBA’ when you are smelt in places where you shouldn’t be, if you get what I mean.
Picture this: you are all dressed up, fresh and fly. On stepping out, you get a hug from a friend who immediately says ‘Hmmm…you smell like Teni’. Of course Teni is your friend and suddenly your confidence is lost because its actually Teni’s perfume. You sure don’t want your yansh opened this way.
Enough of my stories.
One thing you must understand is whatever perfume it is you wear, speaks for you, trust me. It makes statements either good or bad. You know that kinda attention you get when you walk into ‘that venue’ and automatically heads turn and eyes won’t just stop staring. Or that awkward feeling when the moment you spray your perfume, your roomie grabs Air wick…hehehehe but one man’s food is another man’s poison shey? But make sure it’s not every man’s poison.
I think its uber cool to have a signature scent especially when you’ve found the exact type that suits your taste and skin type (No reactions). Not everyone loves perfumes but for those who do, imma recommend some you might wanna choose from.
P.S: I am not saying the ones I recommend are the best you can get ooo, but you can bet I won’t recommend what I know nothing about abi? So please if you’ve got yours, stick to it. Otherwise, here is my list…
D & G Light Blue

You might wanna educate me too. What’s is your signature scent and what language does it speak?
