The Fragrant Rose

I have never been a floral fragrance person. My preferences have always been fruity or spicy. Citrus, Musk, Lemon, Pomegranate based fragrances have been the ones I used to buy. As much as I love the scent of jasmine, lavender and rajnigandha I have only been able to tolerate agarbattis with floral scents. Never perfumes. And rose I thought was the most overrated!

Off late however, I have started liking rose scents. It started with oil dispensers dispensing fragrant aroma oils slowly and filling up the room with a light rosy scent. It moved on to agarbattis and just last month, I picked up two rose scented sprays. For someone with strong likes and dislikes when it comes to fragrances, it is a big big step!

And if you are wondering what the point of all this is, I figured the following:
  1. Very often, our choices may not be the popular ones. Even if it puzzles you, stick to your choice. You will find other things that appeal to you. People around you might fiend it weird. But what difference does it make to you?
  2. Never say Never! I always believed that I would not come to like rose scents and look at me now. As we get exposed to different things in life our tastes, likes and dislikes change. We need to keep an open mind
And now, I am game to try out more feminine floral fragrances!
