Well, I did it, I broke down and got not just one JAR perfume, but two – Shadow and Diamond Water, and I don’t regret it a bit, they are such welcome additions to my perfume collection.
I put on Diamond Water yesterday all by itself, with no other scents competing for real estate, and it lasted all night and kept softening and just getting prettier and prettier, and I fell head over heels in love with it. I’m so glad I got it, it just breathes elegance and beauty. You know when you see something so beautiful, you have no words to describe it, and to try put words to how exquisite it is will cheapen it? Yeah… like that.
The bad news is the Shadow, which I also love, but haven’t spent the night with, so to speak, has cloves in it, and I didn’t know that my husband can’t stand the smell of cloves (how can you know someone for 15 years and NOT know this?). Well, more for me! But he’s pretty disappointed that he can’t wear it and get ravished.
This is a short post today since I’ve been doing training all week and suffering from insomnia on top of that. I’ll be back in good writing energy next week.
As a side note, I hope to be done with putting my decants and perfume samples in my internet store over the weekend, in addition to my eBay listings, which will make it easier to extend discounts on shipping and samples and decants in the regular pricing. I’ll just drop a quick note in a post when it is ready and change the link over on the right.
