My hubs and I celebrated our one year anniversary in September. After dating for over six years we finally decided to make it the real deal and eloped the previous year. They say that things change when you get married, but I can’t say that I’ve noticed a difference. I think the reason is that we haven’t allowed a piece of paper to change who we are.
Something that we’ve always done is have a weekly date day. The day usually takes place on a weekend day and we make it a point to spend a good portion of the day with each other. That means, no distractions, no cellphones, just good old connecting time. Occasionally date day is Netflix and chill day, but we usually try to get out of the house for it.
That looks a little something like this…
20 minutes before we’re about to leave, Brandon goes and takes a shower. He then picks out what he’s going to wear, which usually takes him about 30 seconds. He’s a simple man, what can I say? Then he puts on his watch, sprays on some Axe Black Fragrance and he’s ready to go. It’s always his finishing touch because spraying on some Axe makes him feel fresh and put together. He looks great. He smells great. And he does it all in the time it takes me to figure out what I’m going to wear. I always know when he’s ready because I can smell the masculine fragrance of his Axe Black body spray when he walks by. I can’t complain because I love the smell and have come to know it as his signature scent.
For me, getting ready to go out is a whole different animal. I start off by taking a shower with my Caress Daily Silk Body Wash. The body wash leaves my skin soft, and the fragrance reminds me it’s there while I do my hair and makeup. I don’t know about you, but smelling nice always makes me feel good about myself. I enjoy taking in the feminine scent while I finish doing my hair and makeup before I get dressed.
Although my husband and I are completely opposite about how we get ready for a date, the thing we have in common is that we’re scentmates. We both bring our best selves forward to spend time together. The icing is how well our fragrances mingle together. The Axe Black Fragrance that Brandon wears plays nicely with my Caress Daily Silk Body Wash. The rest is just good times surrounded by fresh scents.
We really enjoy our date nights because it gives us a chance to have good conversations and share laughs. These are the moments and experiences that connect us and help to keep our relationship fun and exciting.
For us, It’s not about fancy restaurants and trips, in fact, some of the most fun is on days that we mix date days with errands. It happens sometimes, most recently when we stopped in at Sam’s Club to pick up some of our essentials like Axe Black Fragrance and Caress Daily Silk Bodywash, and tickets to go see a movie using the Sam’s Club Scan & Go app. The app makes it easy to shop and we were in and out to our movie in no time. Another option is to use the club pick-up option at Sam’s Club.
