The Eau de parfum Encounter


“Excuse me,” he said. “You smell good. I hope you don’t mind me saying that.”

“Oh not at all. Thank you!” I exclaimed, completely caught off guard.

Then slowly a beautific smile spread across my face and hasn’t gone away since. 

What a great way to start my day!

So a few thoughts from “The Eau de parfum Encounter”:

(yes, I gave it name. I’m extra like that!)

Do what makes you happy!

The fragrance I selected this morning, one of my favorites, is one that I don’t usually wear unless it’s a special occasion. But today, I made a conscious decision to put on a fragrance that makes me happy.

You can impact the world, one person at a time!

We aren’t always aware of the impact our presence makes in the lives of the people you encounter.

The sweet smelling perfume I put on this morning to please myself, wafted over to the businessmen deeply engrossed in conversation sitting next to me, arrested one of them and moved him to compliment me on my fragrance.

Your words are powerful!

His kind words changed my whole mood and has given me a warm flow that will ripple into the interactions I have today.

What kind of impact are you making on your circle of influence, and on your most intimate relationships—

with your presence?

with your words?

Bloom like a sweet-smelling lily, and send your fragrance into the air like incense. Sing the Lord’s praises, and thank him for all that he has done.
