by that barfly, Tom!
I think I’ve finally reached a tipping point. Not in my desire to try new fragrances but in my acquisition of the samples. I know I am a sample whore, as I have admitted on this blog and elsewhere. But I am now running across samples that I have no recollection of receiving. Am I getting them in a blackout? Is there a future appearance of a perfume version of “The Morning After” where I’ll wake up with a hangover and a broken bottle of Shalimar I don’t remember?
Perish the thought.
In any case in a random pile of stuff in the bowl where keys used to live and samples do now was a carded sample of Nudité Intense. You can go to Indiescents.com to read the rather breathless prose about what it’s supposed to be. What it is on me is a clean skin scent with a hint of aquatic. Of course I could get the same effect from my own skin by showering and then waiting a few hours, but I suppose it’s rather churlish to point that out. Having written that, It’s not the best thing I’ve ever applied to my skin but it certainly isn’t the worst. There are a bunch of scents that I think do this better, but then this is $48 for 10ML of oil which should last until the Second Coming.
At IndieScents.com; don’t know if my sample was from them, Nordstrom or whether it was picked up in a dark bar when I was bombed. Well, not the last one since I don’t go to bars. Not any more.
