I relate to Love simply because I'm in love. Wearing the scent of love is like happiness is in the air :)


I don't personally relate to any of them. But for my wife, I would have to choose "music" because my wife is musical in every way. From her laugh to her instruments, music is her thing.

Hello! I was just watching your video on YT. about your mini-haul at the MAC holiday collection preview.

I am a subscriber to both your YouTube channel, and your Blog.

As to who I identify the most with, I would definitely have to choose Gwen. I love her unique style in fashion and music. I admire the courage she has to break away from the lines of fashion and add in her own flavour. Plus the scent of G (that coconuty, sweet smell reminds of vacation) gotta love that!

Thanks so much for putting up the contest!
