As I mentioned not long ago, after a hiatus of over three months, I have taken the plunge again and purchased a number of samples, this time from Luckyscent. It is expensive, and I know there are more important things I could spend my money on, but then again, perfume is my hobby. So why shouldn't I indulge every now and then? I don't know about you, but in a way, the actual process of ordering samples can sometimes be more exciting that the sampling itself. There is something about that process of browsing a site like Luckyscent for example that is addictive, looking at the various lines, making a shortlist of what you think you want, reading a few reviews, tweaking the list, then with an intake of breath, clicking that order button, for better or for worse. Then there's the anticipation and waiting. Checking the post each day, searching for that padded tell-tale parcel. I could go on, but I think you get my drift. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like this, am I (said in a plaintive, slightly desperate voice)?
Anyway, below is a list of my most recent order and once it arrives, I look forward to writing some more reviews as I try them:
Amouage Opus II
Nasomatto China White
Eau d'Italia Paestum Rose
Eau d'Italia Sienne l'Hiver
Parfums MDCI Enlivement au Serail
Atelier Orange Sanguine
Atelier Bois Blonds
The Different Company Bois d'Iris
Heeley Sel Marin
Domenico Caraceni 1913
Mark Buxton Black Angel
Here's wishing you all a great final day of August 2010.
