I swear – why do I feel like I am perpetually the kid that cries about the dog eating their blog post. It’s just been a crazy busy time, and this is the last week of it before we get the holiday slowdown – yeah! But I was going to talk about the BDKs. In more detail than this, but all we are getting is some bare bones.
I really love BKD Gris Charnel? It’s an addictive, soft, smooth as butter thing, and I kept sniffing my sample for two months, trying to decide if it was enough different from other smooth, buttery fragrances I have. Then I decided I didn’t care, I really loved it and I was going to need it when it got thrown into an online sale for 20% off!
Now I’m trying to decide on Rouge Smoking. It is reaaaallly nice and getting dangerously close to that “I don’t care” spot too.
Do we think there are others that would work? I’ve got a bunch of them as samples when it was a freebie at Luckyscent, and I’m slowly going through them. Some I think are okay, but I only sprayed them once and haven’t gone back to that well. There are like 3-4 of them that I keep noodling around with. They are just hard to wrap my head around because they don’t beat you over the head, they are much more subtle. I think I’ve decided that isn’t a bad thing in perfumes, it’s just not as easy to know if you love it.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I had a pretty laid back birthday – worked (duh!), but not too much, and I’ve got cheesecake and clam chowder coming in from back east tomorrow. I ordered too late to get it here today. That’s my favorite meal. Perfume I wore for my birthday was that BDK Rouge Smoking that I’m still trying to sort out in my head. I’ve almost gone through the sample, I really am hoping for some sale somewhere or another after Christmas to push me over the edge.
Then the other thing I’m determined to try out are those Gucci Alchemist things. Anyone else tried them? I don’t have access here to perfume counters – not like I’d go out sniffing if I could – and those are tough to come by since I don’t have any suction with perfume salespeople these days.
Worth it or no? I found the Iris one reasonable ($330 for 100 mls is tooo much, got it for far less than that!) and I can never turn down a good iris, and I’m hoping Gucci will redeem itself and head back to the days when they made my still favorite perfume, 2003 Gucci EDP. So fill me in, those of you that have smelled them – on the regular ones, the oils and that Nymph thing that is pretty new.
