Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Fragrances

Time for another one :smileywink:

 

I thought I would create a series of discussion where we could all share our make-up stashes. This is just meant to be fun.

 

How it works: Just take a picture of the stash mentioned in this post and upload to the discussion board. Feel free to tell us what you like best.

 

Ok ladies time to share your stash for your fragrances!

 

This is the 5th in a series of post I will do.

 

Still to come: skin care, body care, hair care and brushes. Might do one with samples as well. :smileywink:

 

For the new comers also check out the face, eyes, lips and nails series.

 

******************************************

 

Not super super into perfumes but someone here on BT got me into Tokyomilk. You know who you are :smileywink: Will be getting some shortly. 

 

I prefer sweet scents for fall/winter like vanilla and fresh scents in the spring/summer.

This is my small, sad, collection of perfumes. My favorite in my collection is the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. I am not usually a big fan of scented lotions but I do own a few and my favorite is Winter Candy Apply from Bath & Body Works. My next big perfume purchase, soon, will be Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy La Fleur. If you lovely ladies have any suggestions on some of your favorites to help my collection grow that would be awesome! Thanks :-)

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Fragrances

While there are other ones on the loose in my house this is what I have easy access to. Some of these minis will be headed to the Feb. traveling box...I think I will like it, then change my mind....like the bottle but then it's just another thing to dust...I like to change them with my mood But my signature scent is the No.5 Eau Premiere.... I have this in the refillable purse spray too so I always have something..sttash 002.JPG

Growing up I had a four post bed, desk, dresser, and night stand set that matched the piece of furniture in this pic (I think it is the night stand...)

...fond memories!

Nothing is excessive if you love it :smileywink:

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Fragrances

This isn't a current photo - it's from when I had the box custom-made but I only buy perfume oil from an online company (BPAL) and have a custom-made perfume and jewelry box. I can take a more current photo if anyone else is into BPAL (we tend to be kinda cult-ish about it. :smileytongue: :smileyhappy:0B1339A7-81F6-43E7-AB54-EF48E00A4BFB.JPG

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Fragrances

I'm dying to try out BPAL. Do you find that the website descriptions are accurate?

ladymeag

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Fragrances

(0) Hearts

Beth, the lady that makes the perfumes writes the descriptions. Yes, they are generally note-accurate and if you keep notes on what you try, odds are very good you'll soon be able to predict what a particular blend will smell like on you. Perfume oils change with the wearer's skin chemistry and body warmth, so it'll smell a little different on you than in the bottle and likely very different on you than it does on me or your best friend. 

Feel free to PM me with questions - I've been buying BPAL for over a decade. :smileyhappy:

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Fragrances

I love hand blended perfume oils, but I haven't quite bit the bullet on the BPAL price tag, though there are so many I would love to try. I would also love to see a current picture!

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Fragrances

I can take a photo with my nice camera tomorrow, but with my iPhone, you can see that the collection has grown some. I tend to buy masculine type scents and avoid nearly everything with a floral component (migraines,) so my to-try list was also shorter to begin with.

You know you can get sample sizes to try out, right? (See second photo.)  They're much easier to spring for a few of - 6 for $22, if memory serves. :smileyhappy: I've been buying these since 2003, so I don't collect them as quickly as some folks who buy BPAL. I love every one I've got, though.  I've tried hundreds of them - there's a very active swapping market on the BPAL forum and they always include extras in orders from the company.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Fragrances

Ohhh nice! Where did you get that box your samples are in? (I am currently looking over the scent list with Mr. Husband, so an order might be in the near future.)

 

By the way, do you find their descriptions to be pretty accurate?

ladymeag

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Fragrances

Because it's straight perfume oil, your skin chemistry can change how a scent smells. Be prepared for things you thought you loved to be weird and things you would have never dreamed of loving being amazing (hi, patchouli and sandalwood, how are you? :smileytongue: ) In the bottle/sample (they call samples "imps") the scent is very true to description - Beth, the lady who makes these, can make something that smells _exactly_ like an oak hallway and a cup of coffee. She's a magician, I have no idea how she does it. If it says it smells like "banana peels and graveyard dirt," take her word for it (and wonder who on Earth wants to smell like banana peels and dirt. :smileyvery-happy:

The box that my sample sizes are in is an ammunition storage box from Amazon. Search for "MTM 38/357 Cal 50 Round Flip-Top Ammo Box" and you'll see them - they run about $9 each. Larger caliber/rifle ammunition storage boxes work well for storing the kind of fragrance samples you get from Sephora. :smileyhappy:  (Weird re-purposing, I know. I'm a weird shopper when I hit the sporting goods store - I want a tackle box that will hold my sewing supplies and an ammo box for perfume samples. :smileywink:
