I don't know about you, but I enjoy good perfume. For years, I have only owned two scents, but I have several samples of other perfumes that I have fun with. I find these samples on LuckyScent.com. Has anyone visited their site?
Now, mind you, the samples aren't free (unless you're ordering a perfume), but for two or three dollars a vial, you can get several to try on for size. They last quite a while, and it's fun.
My favorite scent of the perfumes that I've tried is Keiko Mecheri's Ume. I love the description:
Unexpectedly decadent, this intoxicating meditation on umé, the Japanese plum, marries sweet and salt, fruit and spice, ethereal lightness and velvety richness. Japanese plum, persimmon and the delicate apricot-like osmanthus blossom provide a succulent sweetness that dances a breathless tango with deeply alluring Oriental moss, woods and spices. An unforgettable fragrance that would have suited Josephine Baker herself – marvelous and unique.
It almost sounds good enough to eat, doesn't it? And honestly, who doesn't want to dance a breathless tango? Now, that's just exciting!
At LuckyScent, you'll be invited to peruse reader reviews of the scents offered, and for convenience, fragrance samples are sorted into type: fresh, incense, and soft are some examples. I usually just go for the "Top Pics" under the cult following. It's where I found Catherine Memmi's Attitude: Like the honeyed sheen of polished wood or the easy grace of an impeccably tailored silk suit, this fragrance speaks of comfortable elegance. For the confident woman who knows she doesn’t need to raise her voice to get things done.
You know what? Sometimes the descriptions are just as delicious as the scents themselves.
Oh, and the two scents I own are Chanel Coco Mademoiselle and Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. What are your favorites?
