Perfume Poll Part 2

Tonight I smelled Viva La Juicy. OH MY WORD!!!!!!!!! I fell in love.............knew this was the one!!! Came home, let Steve smell me and this is what he said," I don't like that AT ALL!" UHHGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE ONLY one he seems to really like is Happy. I like it too! (May be what I get)

Ohhhhhh I have just LOVED reading your comments about the perfume!!!!!!!!! Thank you for taking the time to do that! I have become really good friends with the ladies at Dillards and Perfume Mania. They seem to get nicer to me each day. I am thinking they may be getting scared of me and so they are trying to be extra nice. I have been there EVERYDAY! Yep, that's right.
Here is what I have learned about myself with your help and theirs:
I love fresh, fruity, green leaf, flowery scents, crisp fragrances.

These are the scents I have worn in the past and LOVED:

Love Spell
Escada-Summer scents
Chance in the green bottle
Private Collection

After smelling MOST every perfume the stores carried, I like:

Escada-Into the Blue
Light Blue ( I just adore it!!!!!!!!!!!)
Private Collection

Any thoughts you may have on DKNY or Into the Blue????????????????????????????? I know I know, it just really matters what I like and perfumes smell different on different people, but it is still fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have left the mall each day, not knowing up from down. I have had perfume on my wrists, neck, back of my neck, forearm, shirt, coat, pieces of paper, you name it, I've sprayed it! Gotten home and they all run together and all stink to me. But, I have it down to 2 or 3 scents!!!!!!!!!
I have been writing down what you say and carrying it with me to the mall. Don't you know those women think I am nuts????????????? all have really helped me!

I love Private Collection. I wore it in High School It came out in 1973. Ha ha!!!!!!! Has anyone my age bought it in the past 30 years??????????????? When I sprayed it at Dillards, it came out sticky and yellow. HA had not been sprayed in months, I could tell. Steve seems to like it.

I am having a fit now to smell the Juicy Scents. I missed them. I am going to try to sneak away to the mall this weekend.
Steve is going to have to make the purchase soon!

Thanks again for all the interesting comments.

well, my fave is Victoria's Secret Dream Angels Heavenly. It truly is!
Have your ever tried Lady Primrose products? I just love them and they are so fragrant. Beautifully packaged but rather expensive. There is a shop at the Gaylord that sells the products. Gene Allens Hallmark in N. Arlington carries these products as well.
Go to sephora and go to the Benefit section and smell Maybe Baby. it is sooo delicious. I love a lot of the scents you like and this is sooo fruity and sweet. Also, Sephora has a new line called Clean. I love clean laudry and cotton. they smell soo light and fresh. let us know11 xo

You have given me a craving to buy some Pleasures-thanks. My husband tells me he likes everything. I am not sure if he is being honest or not, so I hate it!

I have had alot of the more expensive (at least to me) perfumes and you know what I just love....Tommy's clean and not overpowering and pretty cheap compared to the rest! Besides my man's favorite smell is bacon cooking!!!! har

Go back to Sephora and try the scents by PHILOSOPHY!! I can guarantee you that you could possibly find "your" scent there! They are clean scents and not overpowering - I will even bet your husband will like at least one of them on you! I promise, they will be worth the extra trip back to Sephora! (PS I have worn several Estee Lauder scents off and on, since I was in high school (appox. 1970 until today), as well as Chanel, Tresor and others. I like certain scents at different times of the year, and they bring back memories of those times. So I have not varied much for allot of years, until I was introduced to PHILOSOPHY!! Love, love, love it!

Ha! I just popped over and was scrolling through this post and saw you loved Viva La Juicy! Me too!!! Only I told my husband I could never wear it b/c if someone ever asked me what I was wearing I couldn't tell them Viva La Juicy! Just doesn't sound like a perfume a 36 year old mom of 3 should be wearing! Ha! :-)

I know I am WAY late in responding but thought I would anyway...

Hi Laurie! I've read your blog silently for about a year, found it through Kelly's and I have no recollection of how I found hers.

Anyway, the list of perfumes you like are the same list that I have and I've recently purchased 2 new perfumes - Gucci 2 and a Christian Audigier perfume.

Enjoy your new fragrances! :)

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
