I love getting perfumes as gifts, especially Arabic ones. My cousin hates it, she says its not a thoughtful gift, just convenient.

I disagree, if anyone takes the time to buy anything at all even if its just convenient, it still counts as thoughtful.

I like having a big collection of scents to choose from, and i always spray according to my mood.

Fig my roommate only likes using one perfume at a time. A bottle of perfume usually lasts only a week with her cuz she doesn't just spray it, she takes a shower with it. and suffocates me along the way.

I hate it when people spray too much. They would enter a room and immediately flood your senses. Its not nice, just over powering. And my god if your in a confined place like an elevator!
I can actually feel their perfume in the back of my throat!

But i guess being over powered by perfume is a lot better than being over powered by body odor!

(this is me trying to find a bright side, eshraykom feeni wana positive)

Arabic perfumes?.. I always find them too heavy. Or maybe I don't know enough about them.

I too wear perfumes depending on weather and mood.

September 30, 2008 at 6:39 AM  

positivity becomes u :D

i agree on most of it, i dont like overpowering scents either, just a whiff when one is passing by is so much more elegant. man or woman. and i LOVE arabic scents, bu5oor w dehn 3ood w everything made from both is amazing i reckon.. u shud try narcisso rodriguez's 'narcisso' its not arabic but its 70% 3ood, and its the best perfume ever!

kel 3am w enti b5eir bannout :flower:

انا مشكلتي ان لما عندي وايد ما يخلص.. و ما احب الزجاجه تطول بس لما اشوف شي يديد احب اشتري..

ريلي ما تقعد عنده الزجاجه اسبوع مدري شنو سالفته.. انا احس ان العطر ما يعقد معاي كل ما ارش جنه ما اشمه بس الناس يقولون امبلا..

lol, it was nice of you to try. I personally use one fragrance at a time, although I usually have many of them in my bathroom, but I stick with one. When it comes to arabic fragrances though, I don't think it makes that much of a difference. I hate it when it's over powering too,( even tough nQ used to say I wear too much of it.

September 30, 2008 at 5:48 PM  

Im exactly like u ! I have so many perfumes and i use them from tiiiime to time depending on mood, occasion, clothes im wearing, time of day etc etc.

I *heart* perfumes!

I have a friend that uses one at time, i find that so weird, y3ni ilwa7id ma tlo3 chabda min ilre7a?

Though I spray my perume bottle in two weeks if not less " not in a crazy way" but I can't stand odor smell!!

My nose is just so effing sensitive to sweat smell!!

October 1, 2008 at 3:09 AM  

i agree.. the worst give u can give someone is perfume unless u know EXACTLY what their taste is. its impersonal and convenient

I hate having perfumes as a gift, 7ada 1990's :P

now if it were to be given, it should be 'part' of a gift, not the main item.

min gal im materialistic :P

October 1, 2008 at 5:55 PM  

gifts are gifts.. what ever they , other wise the person saying other than that, is looking at the gift itslef and not the meaning :)

seasonality and moodyness require the availability of different kinds and types of perfumes to compliment those changes ;)

h a p p y e i d ;)

I love perfumes and I love having a variety of them from french to arabic, I always spray the arabic perfume on my abaya.

Eidich Mubarak

October 2, 2008 at 11:46 AM  

I have a rule no spraying perfume if im in the car! LANA they never put shwaya they always shower in it and suffocate us all!

October 2, 2008 at 1:30 PM  

I think perfumes are a very thoughtful gift, as you take the effort and time to choose the perfect one..

I love perfume so i dont mind it as a gift :D

3edik Mubarak, and kil 3am o inti be5air..

October 2, 2008 at 5:52 PM  

oooh I have mixed feelings on this topic.. if its a blah normal perfume that everyone has I dont like getting it as a gift, but if its something for example that we don't have in the country jaybeena mn bara3 or something astanas :P but I don't give perfume as a gift, a7s it says "I dont know you well enough to know what to get you, so here, spray some perfume on :P "

October 2, 2008 at 9:25 PM
