Hooray (sort of)! It’s that time of year again (or rather, every other year) when Luckyscent has done a round of pre-sampling and is now offering all the Le Labo City Exclusives scents for sale on their site for a limited period (through the end of September, I think).
But not this year.
For the 290 smackeroos that would net me my beloved Tubereuse 40 or delectable Vanille 44 have cruelly been siphoned off this year for (among other things): a new starter for my car, a new blower fan for said car, and double-whammy colonoscopy bills. (All I can say is Wowza! Who knew the anesthesiology bill would be even bigger than the already plenty whopping bill for the procedure itself?).
So once again, my dreams of owning a refillable, sleek glass container of Le Labo lusciousness go down in flames. Le sigh …
OK, enough of my little perfume pity party. I realize how petty it might sound in the whole scheme of things, and I am grateful and blessed beyond words for good health, a dependable, though aged, vehicle and so many other things.
And truth be told, when it came right down to it, I’m not sure that I would really be able to pull the trigger on a bottle. I tend to have a bit of a guilty conscience these days about spending so much on myself. Of course, at the rate I’m going, I may never be actually put to the test, ha!
So what about you? Have you already gotten your hot little hands on a bottle, or do you intend to later this month? Or do you plan to plot, save and scheme for the next City Exclusives go-round (I’m guessing 2015)? Are you still peeved that Aldehyde 44 is no more? Or do you just feel “meh” or worse about the whole concept?
