|Halftime during the Pat's game at The Bergeron's: little game of H-O-R-S-E, but instead of getting letters as penalties, you have to run a lap around the house. This is Ben talking smack to all of us and shakin' it over how he "forgot how to miss".|

Ben agreed with this one, as he did with every other one they listed. But, I had to explain to him that it's hard to get the perfume thing right. If you put just the right amount on when you're getting ready in the morning (basically, one or two spritzes), you won't be able to smell it by the time you get to where you're going.
Obviously, you don't want to go crazy and go for ten to twelve sprays, either. You shouldn't walk into a room and have everyone in it smell your perfume.
Ben described it perfectly: you should only be able to smell perfume on a woman if you're right in front of her or giving her a hug.
While I think that is spot on, I think it's incredibly hard to nail what the "right" amount is.
I guess it depends on what perfume you use, but whatever it is...you've got to figure it out.
I have two bottles of my perfume: one for my bathroom where I get ready every day, and a travel one for my bag so I can reapply it a couple times a day. That way, I don't feel like I have to front load it all in the hopes that it will last all day.
I love my perfume. It's the same perfume I used all through high school and college: Design by Paul Sebastian. It's one of those scents that I get compliments on almost every single day. The best part about it is that it's well under $20 for a 4 ounce bottle; I can almost always find it at TJ Maxx or Marshalls.
I recently caught up with an old friend who randomly met a guy from Stonehill College, where I went to school. The two of them were talking when the guy asked my friend, Allison, if she was wearing Design perfume. She said yes. He said he's only known one other woman who wears it. Allison said she only know one other woman who wears it, too. He goes, "You're not talking about Heather Keenan (my maiden name) by any chance, are you?" The two of them started cracking up.
I love that, though. I love having a scent that people associate you with, especially if it's a good one.
I've always wanted a scent like that that my husband would smell on his sweater when he's traveling or something my kids would smell on their jacket when they're at school or something. I even love when people hold Harley and they say she smells like me.
Whenever I smell Oil of Olay, it immediately reminds me of my mom. She used to use it every night after she washed her face and got ready for bed. I use the it now and will never stop because it reminds me of her when I was growing up.
I think it's nice to have a signature scent.
Just make sure you get it right :)
