I've written about this malaise a few times before. I have been very busy and stressed at work this month, particularly over the last ten days. This week I have not worn perfume at all, so far. So that equates to three whole days, which is very unusual for me.
Thinking about it, I cannot fathom why I so often skip wearing perfume during busy times. I'm not convinced it is because I don't have time to apply a perfume; after all, all it takes is one dab or spritz, literally seconds. I think it has more to do with the fact that deciding on what to wear, the selection process, is for me a deliberate and considered process. I like taking my time, assessing my mood and choosing accordingly. When I'm busy and stressed, that peace or frame of mind is missing and thus I enter a state of inertia, as far as perfume is concerned.
Do you ever have phases like this, and if so, what do you think prevents you from wearing perfume, if at all?
