Part of the Great Drugstore Challenge was to find the worst. When first my boots hit the ground outside the drugstore, I was fairly certain that I could find a perfume that would be a reasonably good purchase. Finding the worst perfume was bound to be more difficult, there had to be many contenders. In a sea of Musks – pink, green, skin, soft, rat love – this could take some effort to proclaim one the worst.
As I rounded the corner of the locked cabinet, there was a display on the end. So bright, so pretty, so pink!!! What could this confection be? Oh, yes, now I remember that episode of “Newlyweds” where Jessica got sick during the photo shoot of her new beauty products, Dessert. Well, this was going to be sweeeeet, I was sure, but sometimes sweet can be fun. March loves sweet perfumes. The more it smelled like cotton candy or a ding-dong, the closer I was going to come to finding the Perfect Perfume for her. I reached down and picked up the pretty bottle with brightly colored gee-gaws on it, unscrewed the pretty pink lid and took a big sniff…
OHDEARGODNO, THAT IS THE WORST, MOST SICKENINGLY SWEET SMELL THAT HAS EVER FOUND ITS WAY TO MY NOSE!!!!!
We have a winner with so very little effort. Worst smelling thing in the drugstore or anywhere perfume has ever been carried is the whole Jessica Simpson Dessert line. This is some seriously nasty potion, with names like Cotton Candy, Butterscotch Toffee, Lollipop, Bubble Gum, Banana Split, Big Candy and the.worst.thing ever…. CUPCAKE.
I still want the boots.
