I was gifted my first bottle of perfume at 14. I had my deodorant before that and a body spray but no perfume and they certainly did not convey the ladylike sophistication that a teenage girl longs for. I wanted a scent that matched my desire to forge an identity that says 'I am no longer a little girl'. I've loved that perfume ever since and each time I get a whiff of Chanel No. 5, I am once again a 14 year old ready to conquer the world.
