I Will Work for Perfume!!!
Friday, April 21, 2006

I have a confession to make, I'm a perfume whore.

What? Sounds harsh you say?? Well, maybe, but I love to smell like a sweet summers breeze that's been chemicalized up to attract the opposite sex. (Bah, a girls gotta have something working for her doesn't she?)

Since I've been a bit broke lately I have had to start my twelve step program. It's not easy, but it works for me:

1)Stay away from the mall
2)If I am forced to go to the mall, avoid the major department store spritzer Nazi's
3)If I can not avoid the spritzer Nazi, refuse free sample politely
4)If I can not refuse the free sample, leave without trying it on
5)If I can not refuse to try the sample on, do. not. smell. it.
6)If I can not refuse to smell the free sample, do not ask if they have it on special
7)If indeed they do have it on special, do not ask if it is a box set
8)If it is a box set that's on special, do not ask to see it
9)If I can not avoid caressing the boxed set on special with my eyes, do not fondle the boxed perfume set longingly
10)If perfume box fondling can not be avoided, do not reach blindly for my purse
11)If reaching for the purse can not be avoided, avoid the look of triumph from spritzer Nazi
12)Just put the damn thing on plastic already!!

see.....perfume whore..told ya

Hey now. I love when women wear perfume, especially the kind that can be smelled long after she is gone. At work, I can always tell when this one girl gets in the office because the smell is captivating. I don't know what she wears but it is paralyzing.

I don't think I've ever met someone who had a 12 step program for avoiding the purchase of perfume. Thank goodness I don't have this one. I just pick my favorite and have a couple. My absolute all time favorite for summer is Calyx by Prescreptives. It is light and fruity with a touch of flower.

I have to avoid spritzers because of allergies too. A land without them....oh WOW! I like more fragrances than I can actually use, because of the allergy thing. Right now my fave is Lovely by SJP.

I used to love perfume until I developed a terrible allergy to it. Now it just causes horrible asthma attacks. I hope you're careful about not putting too much on though, because us allergic people really do have breathing problems around perfume.
