Have You Lost Interest in Perfumes During COVID?

Have You Lost Interest in Perfumes During COVID?
Have you lost your interest in perfumes during the pandemic? While a lot of you actually lost your sense of smell, quite a few of you decided there was no need to wear perfumes.

Losing your sense of smell can be frustrating. It connects you to everything around you. Fresh baked bread, pizza being pulled from a New York pizzeria oven, fresh cut grass, a bouquet of flowers, body odors and a sultry perfume that sends you over the edge.

But what about perfumes?

If you're like most people, perfumes were something you had a collection of. You couldn't wait for the seasonal collections to launch. You had your favorite scent and scent designer.

Notice how the pandemic changed your lifestyle. You were pretty much forced to work from home. Who needs to wear perfumes when you're going from your bedroom to your den, dining room or kitchen office? There were certainly no clubs open for socializing.

Do you realize that you missed an entire year and a half of perfume launches?

How do you feel about that? Are you having perfume withdrawals?
