Perfume is every betch’s secret weapon. From making bros subconsciously fall in love with us to causing our professors to lean in just a little closer when we’re begging them to bump up our grades (you mean to tell me that you argued your way from a C+ to an A-? All based on my powers of perfume, you proud Daddy?), the capabilities of a sweet-smelling scent are infinite. I mean there’s a reason Elle Woods got that internship.

juice cleanse$1300 a bottle to smell like old people

Every betch has her “signature scent” and by that we mean it's the scent her besties are forbidden from buying. Unlike the #146 shared guy or morning after pills, perfume is nontransferable. Two years ago she told me that Miss Dior Cherie was her thing and that I wasn’t allowed to wear it anymore. It was so sad.

Let’s talk about the main reason betches love perfume. Like #152 expensive skin shit, it allows us to get rid of some of our excess money to buy what is literally pungent #74 bottled water. Seriously, if your bottle cost you under 100 dollars we're guessing it’s one of those nondescript scents they sell at The Gap called Shit Mist. Sure it may sound ridiculous to drop hundreds of dollars on 3 ounces of something that doesn’t get you drunk, but much like the inch of plaid on the sleeve of your raincoat, it is all about the statement.

Side note: While every betch has her signature scent, every celebrity has her own merchandized scent that we'd never be caught dead wearing. As in, the celeb will go to a factory, pick out a few cinnamon sticks, a rose petal, and a bottle, and put her name on it. Then common people can buy these "elite" commodities at exclusive places like CVS but only if they get the employee to open the special cabinet with their magic key. Whatever it takes to get myself smelling like Britney Spears, is something someone might say when they buy their 20 dollar perfume from a pharmacy with cash.

Like with all aspects of betchiness (except our collarbones), when it comes to perfume, subtlety is key. You don’t want the one time you show up to your bio lab to be the time you activate the allergies of the nice guy who you're making do your lab report. In fact, the number of sprays you do disperse should directly correspond to your destination. Here’s a guide:

To class/work/go get iced coffee: 1-2 sprays

Dinner/on a date/formal event: 2-4 sprays

The gym: 1 small spritz. I mean, do you want to walk past the hot guy who's always there and have him get a whiff of your armpit?

Out at night: As many as you believe will still be smellable at 8 am the next morning when you’re looking for your bra.

Also keep in mind when spraying that we don’t aim and shoot directly on our bodies. That’s what poor women who work in hospitals do to conserve their precious liquid. Spray and step in.

Always remember betches, your perfume will be remembered long after you. That’s why ex-boyfriends will often remark upon your scent when you see them again, or why you have the immediate urge to vom when you catch a trace of the perfume your ex-bestie turned enemy used to wear. It’s been said that scent is the biggest trigger for memory, and you don’t want that memory to be of gross body odor, the sushi place across the street from your apartment, or worse, Snooki for Women.

      I used to be obsessed with Parisienne, but now it just reminds me of a dramatic breakup I had while wearing it. Scent being the strongest sense associated with memories = not fun.

    If you want to minimize the risk of smelling like any other female your boyfriend has met in the past 10 years, Lolita Lempicka perfumes are great niche fragrances with super cute bottles.

    Hermes jardin sur le nil or Hermes mediterranee are both wonderful and unusual perfumes. My mum gave me my first bottle when I turned 12 and I’ve worn almost nothing else since then.

    Perfume is gross, doesn’t matter how much spent on it. How about keeping it to one fucking spray so I don’t get an instant migraine and want to vom the second you step within 100 yards of me. Oo and too all the betches who think its cute to take out their perfume and spray it all over themselves and everyone else around them when they’re out… Don’t be surprised when someone punches you in the face. Some people are allergic.

    I bought a bottle of Annick Goutal Rose Absolue in Paris so that I’d always be reminded of the trip when I wore it. Not a great going-out perfume, but I’m still obsessed with roses so I use a Stella roll-on for night-time…basically a sluttier version of Rose Absolue.

  24. Judge me. says:

    All of you are pleebs! Customize your scent in fucking France or pick some brand known only by the 1%. Chanel Chance??? Lolita Lwhateverthefuckhernameis? Are you fucking kidding me? Most people wore that in the 5th grade. Did you buy it to match your fake louis v speedy from canal st? Or did you run out of Taylor Swift’s Lovestruck? Get it together and try to get a brand that’s at least remotely chic. Not the kind that makes you smell like a baby prostitute.

      You are clearly TTH to be funny, but sorry you missed the boat, probably while you were “customizing your scent” from that skeevy vendor on the street with the roll on knockoffs by the fake louis v you know too much about.

    Love D&G Rose the One for “meeting the parents” or lunch with friends, Gucci Guilty for hot dates, and Chloe as my signature scent. Every woman should have fine perfume. And if they don’t, that says something.
