A collective haul from last week.
Sweet Anthem perfume oils. Loving each one of the perfumes.
Meredith, you have a new fan!
Arabian perfume oils: Al Haramain and Ajmal from Paradise perfumes on eBay
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille (squeeee!!! amazing stuff, this is my 3rd or 4th decant)
Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Perfume and Body Oil
Thanks to lovely Jac of Chloe Blue Likes to Sparkle for sending some pretties my way!
Magazine freebie: Designer Brands 48 eyeshadow palette with Dolly. Not bad for $7.95. I thought I had picked up matte but these shades are shimmery, which I don't mind. The shadows are well pigmented, a bit powdery and one of the pans has lifted off from the palette already. Then again, not too bad for $7.95. Nice to play with some bright pinks and blues.
Finally, a prize I won! A bottle of Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh
from Beauty Heaven Thanks Liv!
I don't condone smoking. It is a nasty and dangerous habit. Please DON'T SMOKE.
Opening a new bottle of perfume reminded me of a particular episode of Frasier. The words of Bebe Glazer is exactly how addictive I feel about perfumes. So, what is so wonderful about perfumes? Everything! I love the way a fresh firm pack feels in my hand. Peeling the cellophane and watching it twinkle in the light. I love to coax the sweet little bottle from its hiding places and removing the cap and bringing it to my nose. The first touch of the perfume on the skin, the first sniff, inhaling deeply, till the scent fills my lungs, caressing my senses, penetrating deeper and deeper, till I think I going to burst! Then poooof, exhaling and feeling exhilarated... no two perfumes smell quite the same!
I guess addiction of all kinds feels the same. It is all in the brain after all. But there are good addictions like perfumes and bad ones like smoking!
