That's it - I'm taking a break from buying perfume. For the next few months, I refuse to be lured.
And this time, I really mean it.
10% off? Oh, hell no.
15%? Doesn't matter.
25%? You bastards.
Nevertheless, I plan to be strong, to wear the perfume I already own and purchase samples and decants only if I absolutely have to.
Guidelines around this are deliberately vague.
When I'm in hot pursuit of the latest 'must have' perfume(s), I immediately toss aside the previous batch that I just had to have. Like the guy that loses interest as soon as he bangs the girl.
Let's face it: No perfume is as alluring as the one I don't have yet, the one on its way; the One True Perfume Love Of My Life.
Our hot affair is short lived, and soon I am convinced that I should buy more, using the following justifications:
1) To round out my collection
2) To provide material for my blog
3) So I can continue to share perfume with others
4) Because the sale is just too good to resist
The question is, why can't I take some time and truly enjoy the perfumes I have? At some point, they were all The One. Now, they're just another notch in my perfume cabinet.
Note to self: Slow down and love the ones you're with.
