I've fallen for a floral perfume.
A fruity-floral perfume.
And no, I don't have a fever.
Fruity-florals are So Not Me. Usually, they just piss
But not this time.
Monday, B-man's Droid dies. Here we are, sucking coffee, and the damn thing quits working. How are we supposed to go play if he can't call or text me, check his e-mail and download the weather report?
Luckily, the 'Droid Place' is located right by my city's new Sephora, so I decide to accompany B-man on this rescue mission.
As I begin playing with perfume, florals are attracting me, although I do get distracted momentarily by Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver. Hmmm.
After spraying dozens of paper strips, my on-the-skin contestants are:
Calvin Klein Beauty - Eternity light
DKNY Pure - Heavenly's first cousin
Gucci Guilty - Yeah, okay
Tocca Bianca - Citrus, rosy, yummy!
When we get home later (Droid mission successful)
I also apply:
I also apply:
L'Artisan La Chasse aux Papillons - Nice Enough
Lismore by Waterford - Sure, why not?
Drum roll please...Tocca Bianca is the clear winner!
Ironically, I have steered clear of Tocca perfumes because they are too...precious.
And Bianca is girly as hell, perfect for an outdoor wedding or attending a tea party in the garden wearing a flowered dress, white gloves and kitten heel sandals.
You will never again see me in a flowered dress.
Shut up, it was just that once.
I'll visit Sephora this weekend to make sure I wasn't in some Droid-worry altered state of mind.
All I know is that, Monday evening, Bianca gave me exactly what I needed.
It made me happy.
What perfumes have made you happy lately?
