All of my favorite perfume sites had fantastic 'Black Friday' sales. This messed with my mind because I have almost reached my self-imposed annual budget. According to Inner Farm Girl, that is. And even she was being generous.
So I thought and researched and read reviews and walked the streets of my new downtown shopping center. Then, I endured the annoyance of the Nordstrom sales associate who kept saying, 'we're carrying Bond No. 9 now!' I'm not enamored with the Bond line - they all have the same drydown - but I tried to be polite.
'Oh,' I said. Shut up, it's the best I could muster.
In the end, I ordered Serge Lutens' Muscs Koublai Kahn, because I have always wanted a full bottle of that dirty little bastard. Plus Cartier's Baiser Vole, to offset the dirtiness of the little bastard I've always wanted.
Besides, B-man said Baiser Vole made him smile.
That's it for 2012. I think.
