What was the last fragrance that caught your eye? Did you purchase or pass?

Dries Van Noten fragrances because of the bottles–really interesting and unique! Haven’t found a commit-worthy scent yet but still several to try from the line.

It’s got to be Paloma Picasso! I saw a bottle at Shopper’s for $19.99 – I couldn’t believe it. Of course, there was no tester and I recall trying it years ago and not liking it but for twenty bucks, what had I to lose (I could always put a bit in the water where I hand wash very delicate items, something I used to do a lot with GWP fragrances I didn’t want to wear). Well, it was absolute LOVE and I’ve scoured SDMs since then hoping to find another bargain bottle (and I did break down and buy a larger bottle with my SDM points and at 20% off on “Seniors’ Day”). I am so glad I took a chance with that one!

Floral chypre? Intense. Certainly a throwback these days. I love it for fall. Used to associate it with more ‘dressed up’ occasions, but… I see PP as more of a classic chypre than an 80s, everything is big, scent.

Oh yes, indeed (especially given the high cost of most fragrances these days and even in past). It’s also how I discovered Roma by Laura Biagiotti – took a chance on a $19.99 bottle and have since purchased 4 more (I’ve already finished one of them).

I was trying around fragrances recently in a Sephora to discover something new, but as always I only liked the vanilla gourmand ones… I rarely like Nest fragrances, but Madagascar Vanilla and Golden Nectar caught my nose. I might buy the travel size of one of those, but I’m not in a hurry to get new fragrances.

Wales Perfume: Forest, Coast, and Country. All rather outdoorsy, but daffodil, of course. There’s a hefty size sampler trio, but alas, The house does not ship to the states. Or anywhere outside the UK.

Same! It makes me smell like a sophisticated bag of marshmallows and I surprisingly love it. I’m not really into sweet gourmands but for some reason this one just works for me.

The last fragrance I purchased was EL’s Pleasures, that was on sale at a ridiculously low price (well, for here in Aus!) at one of our budget beauty stores Priceline. I quite like the perfume, it is quite a strong one though and has a top note of florals, but base notes of Cedar and Sandlewood that I like.

I haven’t bought yet, but I’m seriously considering the discovery set of Sixteen92’s summer collection-six fragrances inspired by 2000s and 2010s alt-rock/emo songs. This year’s anniversary collection is five scents inspired by Wes Anderson movies-I’m not interested in that one.

Shalimar Philtre de Parfum in TK Maxx (the UK version of TJ Maxx), I love Shalimar and this is a newer version. It was under £40 so really great deal and I bought.
