Hey all, this is kind of a random post, but perfume is a part of all things beautiful so I'll chuck it in.
Now, like everyone i do enjoy smelling nice, however I've never been a perfume fiend. I get perfume as a gift and pilfer perfume from other people. If it runs out, i usually don't bother getting another one, i just continue to steal from siblings and my mother and friends.
But i thought its time to shape up, and have always liked the perfume oils i would get as gifts from family abroad. It lasts longer and because they usually come in these dinky bottles, very handbag friendly ( especially for clutch and other wee bags on a night out).
So i had read up about perfume oils a while back but had seen only American sites. Being the fool i was i hadn't even thought to check for a UK one ( Duh!). Anyway i don't remember how, but i stumbled across this site, perfume Parlour
They sell identikit versions of designer fragrances. At like more than half price. They also sell original fragrance oils and Arabian oils.
I ordered 3, 3ml roll on perfume bottles. Now the only perfume that i could recall off of the top of my head was YSL Cinema,which i adored so i bought the i also bought Tommy girl, as i recalled that was the "one" when i was 11. I also bought Miss Cherie by Dior. Well the smellalikes.
Big Plus, free shipping within the UK.
So they come in these really nice pouches, which are really nice and great for gifts.
Only downside they took exactly a week to come, but there was no dispatch email or anything so i was a bit like hmmmm.( with free shipping i can't complain too much)
Down to the smell.
The cinema-like, smelt spot on a very close if not exact
Tommy Girl- very very close
Now i must confess, i had never smelt miss Cherie before. Why had I not? The smell is just not for me at all. ( I think it should be renamed Mr Cherie, nothing feminine about it) I mean if you like that sort of thing its an exact match, seriously email me if you want to take it off my hands. I don't want it!
They last, I've been wearing the cinemaesque for 8 hours now and i can still smell it on me. The Miss Cherie lasted until the next day no lie( urrrghhh).
Overall, i am going to buy loads and get myself a little collection, they are well worth the money, great quality pure oils with no alcohol. I am just really thrilled actually! Big thumbs up.
