I feel like such a FanGirl, but Dolly Parton is doing a fragrance?!?!
She’s only doing samples now, but Scent from Above will be available in July. And that bottle, it’s SO Dolly!
Notes of Mandarin, Blackcurrant, Crisp Pear, Fresh Peony Blossom, Jasmine, Lilly-of-the-Valley, Vanilla Orchid, Sandalwood, Fir, Musk, Tonka Bean, Amber, Patchouli.
I mean, I’m sure it’s going to be just like Dolly, and for me that is a great thing. I have loved her since I was a girl and she sang on Porter Wagoner’s show. I don’t know if I really liked her music back then – probably not – but I loved her. She was so big and so fake on the outside, but there was just all this realness that came oozing out of the big hair and big boobage. She was and is fabulous.
3 ml sample is like 9.95, no postage. I just cannot wait to try this!
I perused around the internets the other night and found all the new things. There are a few new Yohjis coming out for the perfectly unreasonable price of $190 for 50 mls. I really want to try them, but I am not springing that kind of cash for that. Then Bulgari has those new Allegras at $230 for 100 mls, and the bottles are cute, but weird. And now I’m rethinking my bitching about the Guccis. At least they provided a great bottle and packaging with their lovely but not really remarkable fragrances. Anyone tried these?
Are we to the point now where sub-200 is basically reasonable in perfume instead of the sub-100 is reasonable? I’ve noted even mainstream stuff is over $100, nearing 100. Lancome La Vie est Belle has this cute bottle and flanker, and it’s $100 for 50 mls, and more for 100 mls. And when did Penhaligon’s start charging $200 for a bottle?
Are we just dumb for paying this? Don’t answer, of course we are. Is it too much to hope Dolly’s perfume will be under $100? Yes, I’m sure it will be at 100 or over.
But I don’t care, I don’t care if it’s awful or blah, I love her and I will love this. So is there one person that could make a perfume that you would like no matter what?
