Things will change drastically soon, again. In one week new academic year begins and all students all over Poland will be returning to their universities. Another 10 months I will spend working hard, having ups and downs, experiencing new things and trying to keep up with busy perfume world. For me it’s a return. I will be continuing my cosmetics chemistry studies for two more years to get a master title. What will happen next? No one knows that.
This return will be much different than in prevous years. My department moved to the new location, into the brand new building. After spending 3 years in it’s original location I’m gonna miss those old corridors filled with a specific, chemical aroma. 2nd degree at university brings some changes. Few people changed their plans and I won’t meet them on 1st October, I’ll see familar faces mostly but also some newcomers will appear. I don’t lie when I say that I like my university. I like it because I like what I do. If I had no dreams and didn’t feel alright studying chemistry I would give up long ago.
3 months of summer vacation are ending. This year holidays were really awful to me. None of my plans worked out and the only positive thing that happened during that time was making Chemist in the Bottle come to life. I promised myself that I won’t let that happen again and that summer in 2013 will be one of the best summers of my life. Now I think I’m starting to miss my lab coat and goggles. Returning to university will keep my hands and mind busy and when I’m busy I’m more happy. I just hate doing nothing.
Vision of university return coming shortly made me think about perfume too! I started thinking about perfume I should wear on a first day of this new academic year. At some point it’s a new start for me because new people will appear. They don’t know me and I want them to like me, or at least I want them not to hate me. What perfume will be the best choice. Should I go for something safe and quiet like L’Artisan Parfumeur Iris Pallida? Or maybe it will be better to spray a fragrance that my fellow chemists associate with me – Prada Amber Pour Homme which they recognize as Lucas’s perfume. Maybe it’s all about deciding on something big. Maybe I need a bomb and use something unexpected that draws attention. My inner perfumista says that using a perfume which I love and which is new can also be a nice option. Yes, why not to wear Rose Anonyme on my first day?
I still have a full week to make this decision. It’s not that it’s more important than other things happening right now but I really would like to make a nice impression and maybe get one compliment to get me started. On other days fragrances won’t be this important to me. I hate those words I said in previous sentence but believe me, chemicals that I work with kill the strongest perfume ever created. What choice would you make if you were in my place? Feel free to tell me what perfume might work, every suggestion is appreciated!
