…Last night I read about the diet choices of Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe. Grace’s was very focused on whole grains and meal portions while Marilyn’s was about balance and carbs. Marilyn ate sundaes and steak. In the mornings she combined warm milk with raw eggs and at night she drank an eggnog nightcap. Marilyn preferred something akin to Paleo and Atkins.

Grace however liked oatmeal. Oatmeal and tea. Salads. Whole grain sandwiches. And she was very careful to not eat too much. She liked to detox with raw apples. She did not eat many sweets.

Both were beautiful women. Both were glamorous. Many might say that Grace was the more beautiful one between the two and many might say Marilyn was the more glamorous one. But again, they were both tremendously beautiful and glamorous. They both tried to be on trend and succeeded. They both were very popular. They both were the epitome of the things most people want to be.

In terms of perfume *smile* here’s a relatively quick list of fragrances for each type. I think given “skin chemistry” and our uniqueness as individuals that trying to make this list is a little dangerous but I’m going to try.

There are some fragrances that fall into more than one type. I’ll avoid listing fragrances that I think could too easily fall into more type than one. Also, one can easily wear and love, love fragrances that aren’t native to your type. You can also admire or appreciate another type in general. You know? Maybe not wear another type’s fragrances as a signature but certainly wear them if it works with your chemistry and you enjoy it? I mean, I adore many fragrances that are not honestly “me”. I’m sure other people are like that too… And, frankly I’m of the opinion that Marilyn has a lot of brilliant and (what some would consider) best fragrances in her type and so it’s hard to avoid wearing or loving at least one of them. Same with Jackie actually because so many of hers are truly timeless chic classics or are considered masterpieces.
