The Smell of Success: Ways to Make Your Perfume Hobby Affordable

“Nothing brings to life again
a forgotten memory
like fragrance.”

Christopher Poindexter

From the aroma of a dash of saffron to the subtle, yet lingering scent of rain, we rely on our sense of smell for everything.

Whether it’s the whiff of old, worn-out clothes, or the trace of baked, gooey chocolate chip cookies, we associate things and people around us with the way they smell.

How many times have you been able to tell who’s walked through the door because of the subtle, yet powerful fragrance that follows?

How many times have you had to take another route to work because of the malodor nearby?

But there’s a difference between “scent” and “smell.”

Our favorite scents are the ones we want to be able store in a gorgeous glass bottle. But collecting fragrances can be an expensive hobby.

Or is it?

For Your Scent’s Worth

For the avid perfume enthusiast, there’s more to amassing dozen of fragrances on their dresser. It’s about the experience and collecting a true work of art.

But your hobby doesn’t have to cost you thousands of dollars. With caution and a few tricks, you can learn more about scents and keep within budget.

Smell, Smell, and Smell!  

What’s the best way to learn about fragrances and scents? Simple: improve your sense of smell!

You don’t even need to purchase perfumes to be able to discern different scents! Just goes “scent shopping.”

If you want to sample an Armani Summer Code, you can simply walk into the shop and ask for a test. Take a notebook with you so that you can write down your experiences. This way, you’ll learn all about different types of perfumes and scents.

Don’t Rush Into Buying  

This is one of the most important things to remember. Sure, it smells great but that doesn’t mean you should buy it. When you’re starting a collection, you need to learn a lot of things.

You need to be able to discern replicas from originals; should be able to tell the source of the scent and create your own mix.

It’s Classy and Classic

Begin with classic perfumes. If you really want to create a collection of some of the most exotic and incredible perfumes, start with the classics.

From Chanel no. 19 to Dior’s Eau Sauvage, there’s plenty to choose from. But that doesn’t mean you should choose all of them. All you need is a few pieces to complete your collection.

Remember that it’s all about appreciating different scents, not collecting every bottle ever produced.

Is it Time for a Bathroom Remodel? Five Signs You Need to Look Out for

Sometimes bathrooms can be designed well enough that they last years without needing a remodel. Other times small problems may arise that are fixed with simple updates. Either way, the bathroom is a high traffic area, and as such, should be as spacious and functional as possible. Here are five signs that the time has come for you to remodel your bathroom.

Storage Shortage

Old bathrooms designs were far from practical when it came to efficiently use space for storage and some were just built too small. Since modern bathrooms are heavily utilized for storage purposes, a shortage of space indicates that it is time for a remodel.

This might involve improving vertical space usage by adding shelves and improving cabinetry or increasing your bathroom’s size. Whichever way you choose, having sufficient storage space in a bathroom is vital.

Outdated Flooring/Fixtures

If your floor tiles are cracking or if your bathroom is really old and using carpet flooring, it definitely needs to be remodeled.

Maybe your electricity utilizing bathroom appliances are not energy efficient. Water efficiency is also something for consideration in toilets and showers. Look into purchasing WaterSense labeled toilet and shower models, as these use far less water. Fixtures are a major consideration in deciding whether or not to remodel.

Outdated Color

Faded color and paint cracking are both signs that a bathroom is outdated. Or maybe the bathroom was built utilizing vibrant colors that have long since gone out of style. When remodeling, consider using a white color scheme as it is timeless and works with the traditional and modern style of bathroom.

Lifestyle Change

Maybe your lifestyle has changed drastically since the time you had your bathroom made. If you’re looking to get into the latest bathroom remodeling trends such as steam showers, using media devices in bathrooms, floor heaters, and towel warmers, or making your bathroom pet-friendly, a bathroom remodel can help you implement these in your own bathroom.

Time to Sell

Any person looking to sell their house will want all the rooms looking at their best so they can get the highest possible value from the sale. This obviously includes bathrooms. Having up-to-date bathrooms throughout the house will enable you to sell your house fast.

De-Cluttering

The first thing you want to do when reinventing your home space is to de-clutter. In other words, clear the space up a little. A cluttered space is not a cozy space but an untidy one!

Racks, open shelves and baskets are all excellent ways to make a humble addition to your home aesthetic while addressing the problem of clutter!

Color Correction

Sometimes a space could use a little re-coloring with regard to the wall paint or wallpaper. Changing the colors of the walls can at times make a massive difference with regard to how a space looks. A general rule of thumb is darker colors contribute to making a space look cozier but smaller too. Light colors help spaces open up a little.

Themes

Sometimes we have lovely homes, colors, furniture and still don’t manage to achieve the aesthetic were looking for.
