This *Might* Be My New Perfume

Or at the very least, it has put my obsession with Fresh's Sugar Lemon temporarily on hold.

Audrey and I were out on a bit of a girlie adventure last Sunday, which inevitably involved a couple of Sprinkles cupcakes and some window shopping. In Calypso, Audrey nutty from her sugar high (did I learn nothing from the cupcake overload at Millie’s birthday party?), got a little naughty and decided it would be hilarious to douse me with this stuff after I smelled the sample stick and wrinkled my nose at the patchouli mixed in with the fig. (Despite my hippie leanings I’m just not a patchouli girl...)

But… after about two minutes, I couldn't stop sniffing my wrist... It's SO much better on the skin than on the tester stick.

And now I’m torn, as one of my new year’s resolutions (coming soon) is to buy nothing new for the next three months and according to the website, this is apparently a “limited-edition” scent.

Arrgh the temptation...

aren't rules made to be broken anyways?? i just think will i regret getting it or not getting it??

also, you might love it much more than you usually would BECAUSE of your resolution. just like you're hungrier on a diet.

i just saw this perfume on sale at beautyhabit.com--maybe your rez should be no full-price items?

Flora said...

haha, yep, definitely Valentines appropriate :)

Kim said...

OK, rules and resolutions inevitably present barriers and every barrier has a workaround. I think Bryan needs to go buy you that perfume RIGHT NOW and give it to you for Valentine's Day. I think your other blog-buddies support me in this. :)

I think the best thing you should do here is to look at the perfume's you already own, and tell yourself that you will not buy another one until you have emptied at least one of those bottles. ...actually, I think I'm saying this just as much for myself, as I am for you. I am a sucker for a good fragrance, and 7:15 AM in Bali is calling my name.
