I Discovered A New Perfume!


I use the word “discover” quite liberally as I know I really didn’t discover anything. But if I haven’t smelled it before, it’s new to me, right?

Anyway, I was flipping through the Summer Fashion Issue of Harper’s Bazaar this afternoon. As is customary when I read fashion mags, I take a moment to sniff all the perfume inserts I can. Most of the time they’re entirely too strong for my liking, but I’m still curious enough about them.

TIP: Cut out those inserts and stick them in your sock and underwear drawers. I’ve been doing this for years and love it!

So, I took the 3-4 other samples and cast them aside, while I hung onto the one shining star from this issue, Chloe. It’s described as “a fresh and feminine fragrance with an utterly innate sense of chic.” That’s a lot of talk, but I agree with the “fresh” adjective. It smelled very light to me. I don’t like the heavy and overbearing scents. I don’t even wear perfume spray a lot. I usually stick to perfumed body wash and lotion, like I do with Calvin Klein’s Euphoria. However, I will still add this to my “Wish List” in the unlikely case that there’s a sale at Macy’s or something. You never know!

ETA: When I scored my super fab new handbag, at Marshall’s the other day, I saw a small size of Chloe available near the checkout line for $14.50. Should I take the plunge, it will be there and not Macy’s! Score!

Eeek! Found Another Fragrance!

This could be dangerous, yo! I went to Macy’s to get another whiff of the Beckham Signature for Her from one of the tester bottles. Love it even more!

But on my way there, I passed the Calvin Klein Euphoria display and tested it out as well. I LOVE THAT ONE TOO! Man!

I took the sprayed sample cards to my mom and she likes both of the fragrances as well. She said she was glad she wasn’t the one who had to decide between them. A lot of help she is!

At this point, I like the Beckham scent better, but damnit, I want both! I’ll have to continue to shop around and see what I can find. I will have both by New Year’s, mark my words!
