Do you like to smell a certain way?


Not really. I wear lavender essential oil but that’s about it. I just like to smell like myself.

When I was younger, I liked to smell like chocolate LOL. Still do but I used to wear Serendipitou’s Serendipity 3’s chocolate scent which was my milk chocolate favourite. I LOVED IT. Still do. But the last bottle I bought went bad in the last move (the scent turned in the hot car while I was driving), and I haven’t worn it since.

I sort of miss it… I may buy it again.

Now, I don’t really bother with perfumes.

I don’t like strong smells, and it’s not my thing. If I want to smell like anything it is beachy like this perfume Replica’s Beachwalk in the summer which smells perfectly sweet and beachy…

…or this smoky fireside scent Replica’s By the Fireplace..

…or Clean Warm Cotton with my lavender oil mixed in for a fresh laundry scent.

That’s it. Only 3 scents at best.. if at all.

My partner is not into chemical smells (he is SUPER sensitive, even my makeup removers with smell in them turn his stomach), so it doesn’t make him happy at all to smell anything on me.

What about you?

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    My favourite scent ever is Dior’s Midnight Poison. I was devastated when they discontinued it. By now I have only the tinies bit left and only ever use it for very special occasions. I wasn’t able to find a replacement for years! I finally discovered a perfume that’s completely different than Midnight Poison but very appealing to me – Zadig & Voltaire – This is her.

    I really like it when my boyfriend uses a bit of cologne.

    LOVE citrus scents but don’t know if they smell ok on me or not. I would enjoy smelling like fresh fruit, that’d be cool. I haven’t worn scent in years and years, though. We just don’t bother with them 🙂
