I just want to take a moment to gush about perfume for a bit.  Long before I was ever into nails, I really loved perfume.  The olfactory senses have such a strong effect on your overall presence.  A bad smell can damper the mood, make you upset or even sick!  But something pleasant can being uplifting, seductive, inviting, refreshing... just really positive. 

Before I had really educated myself on fragrance, I was a little overwhelmed with the saturation of fragrances on the market and how little I knew about notes, composition, ingredients, etc.  The wonderful men and women at Makeupalley's fragrance board opened my eyes to an entire world of perfumistas!  Of course the beauty junkie in me immediately became immersed in the world of perfume.  I enjoyed reading blogs like Perfume Shrine and Now Smell This and attended fragrance events (yes, they exist) like Sniffapalooza in New York.  Along the way, I met a lot of fabulous people and sniffed a lot beautiful scents.  I am so excited to have the chance to share some of my collection with you guys!  So go enter our Facebook Fragrance Giveaway!
