I love this perfume, even though I'm a little embarrassed to say so.
How to describe JPG Classique? It's floral, musky, synthetic and sweet.
Imagine Poeme's slutty little sister.
Clearly, this is outside of my 'type,' but I just can't help myself. Wearing this perfume, I want to swing my ass walking, show more cleavage, wear red lipstick and cross my legs in a short skirt.
JPG Classique asks everyone within range, 'you want some of this?'
After multiple samplings, I run across JPG in Costco last weekend as part of the new holiday perfume display.
I get that 'twirly' feeling in my stomach.
But before I can build up any circular momentum, Inner Critic steps in to say, 'what the hell are you thinking?' 'You just ordered four perfumes and bought the vintage perfumes within the same month.'
'Put it down and walk away.'
So I put it down, then pick it up, then put it down and pick it up again. B-man is watching.
Finally, I put it down for good and walk over to the cart. B-man says, 'is that a perfume you want?'
I say, 'yeah, but I'm going to wait - if it's here next time we come, I'll buy it then.'
He looks me in the eye and says, 'if this is a perfume you like, and you don't buy it now because you're cheaping out, that's really going to piss me off.'
Ooh...the thought of pissing off B-man is kind of a turn on, but I buy the perfume instead, vowing to twirl properly as soon as we get home.
The tin can and the bottle itself is divinely kitsch.
You just know those boobs are implants.
What is your guilty pleasure perfume?
