Hey, it’s spring, and my allergies are running wild thrugh the upper half of my head, which is just superfun. So I can’t smell a thing, unless it is strong things or bad things.
I did get curious when Jessica Simpson’s Fancy got nominated for both a CEW and Fifi award for 2009 and decided to sniff it this week. Well, it comes through loud and clear through inflamed, irritated and otherwise nonworking nasal passage. It’s sweet and fierce. Not something you want to wear if you’re unwilling to let your scent make a statement about you.
Though, I gotta say, there’s something kind of fetching about Fancy. It’s too sweet, but it falls into that weird pit of things that enchant me just because they’re something I’d never wear now, but there was a time in my youth when I would have happily worn this once or twice before, inevitably, I wore it to a kegger, got sick, and every time I smelled it after that, I’d get nauseous. There’s just a sweet innoccence that surrounds it that is suited for a young woman who wants just that – a sweet, innocent perfume.
After reading Kevin’s review of the new Le Labo Oud 27 on Now Smell this, I am jonesin’ for this like my next Claritin. It’s an interesting choice to release it in spring.
Given the state of my nostrils and my impending short trip that will include cowboy shooting competitions, that’s all I got for today, so tell me what you’re thinking you really need this spring/summer that’s not already in your perfume collection? Can be something new or that’s been around a while.
