So I'm well known at work for being a perfume whore, and W gave me a tiny bottle of Beyond Paradise. It's been sitting on a table in my office with the other four little samples she gave me.
I have to say it's not bad. I was kinda scared of Este Lauder because my Mom puts on too much Beautiful and it gags me. Plus for some reason I always looked down my nose on Lauder's scents.
I do like the hyacinth and honeysuckle, and the amber pulls everything down so it's not too giddy.
Not something I would purchase, but I think I'll use this tiny bottle up over the spring.
I wore Nahema today. After my scrubber incident w/ L'Heure Bleue, I was concerned, but I needn't be because Nahema is quite a pretty fragrance. I didn't realize it was a rose scent until a few hours after I put it on. So hurrah, another Guerlain I like!
I had to go out at lunch time to pick up paint for my office. So of course I stopped in at Macy's to look at their fragrance collection. I struck up a conversation w/the clerk lady - hip looking young woman (early 30s?). I was asking for Chanel #19 and all I thought they had was a ton of #5 and Coco Mademoiselle. I asked about regular Coco (I have wanted a small bottle other then the tiny tester bottle I got off Ebay). I asked about Guerlains - all they had was Shalimar and I already own a bottle .
So of course I started talking to her about Andy Tauer (she said she liked spicey scents herself) and L'Air du Desert Marocain, and I happened to have my little decant spray from perfumedcourt in my bag and asked her if she wanted to try it.
She LOVED it. So I wrote down his name and the name of the perfume for her. (They did have Coco so I bought a small bottle of it. And she gave me a sample of Chance)
Good deed for the day!
I'm woefully neglecting my sketchbook perfume journal - it's becoming a scrapbook book of copies of this blog and pieces of perfume boxes, and once in a while some handwriting ramblings. Sigh.
PS: Just put some Coco on and the Moth said "that smells really 'traditional' but really good." We were both surprised when we realized is was made in 1984 (somehow I forgot that)
