On holidays like St. Patrick’s Day, we all put some thought into what we are going to wear that day – naturally, something green in color, whether it is a pair of pants, a shirt, or even green tennis shoes. For women, adding a pair of emerald earrings or necklace completes the look. Well, it almost completes the look, until the issue of perfume comes up. Perfume just for St. Patrick’s Day? Yes, such perfume does exist and there are a number of different scents that will help you feel more Irish on this day of the year:
