i bought some stuff at Sephora.com the other day and they sent me a sample of VIVARA by Pucci.

i spritzed it on my forearm just now and i swear i've never smelled so good in my life. god.

almost makes the $110 price tag worth it.

bergamot is used in the majority of fragrances, especially men's. it's definitely not just a "citrus" scent; even on it's own it's far too complex to be pigeon-holed in that category and seems misleading/uninformed to try to simplify it like that. it's pretty well-known for bringing out the warmth and depth in fragrances, if anything. shalimar, angel, etc. are two enormously famous examples, and if you look at bond & cb ihp it becomes pretty apparent where it stands. i guess it's roots and the fact that it is often a counterpart with mandarin and grapefruit in certain fragrances may make it seem like "just another" citrus if you're just reading ingredients from a list, but it certainly is very, very distinct from that group. just my two cents.

This is the only thing I will wear



I have like 3 bottles hanging around the house somewhere, and even their new summer one for this year doesn't small as good. I will die when I run out....

i can't do chanels. aldehydes kill me. badgley mischka has a similar "feel" and i can actually wear it...good stuff.

my sister wears chance, has since she was young. i can't wear it but it's the most comforting smell on her. smells so generic on a lot of people but the way it works with her chemistry is amazing.

i just went to sephora and smelled the new pucci...if you like that, sniff the issey miyake.

i bought prada. for months i've ignored it because at first spray it smells horrendous, but a girl next to me sprayed it on my arm accidentally and like a half an hour later it dawned on me that the amazing smell i couldn't get away from was, duh, the prada. it really reminds me of mac mv2 but more sophisticated.

right now i'm sitting on the fence about a big perfume purchase...molinard habanita, flowerbomb extreme, etro heliotrope and stella sheer, or child. seems too early to be wearing child but it could be too late for habanita and flowerbomb extreme if i keep putting off ordering them. heliotrope and stella sheer are great inter-season scents but i just have put off buying them for like a year or two. sigh.

i'm also kind of torn about hermes kelly caleche...i don't really like the original caleche, hate 24 faubourg, etc., and didn't like this at first sniff either. but it's kind of one of those scents that is instantly comforting once it settles on the skin. it reminded me of my grandma. not in like an old-lady-moth-balls way, but of how her powder room and dressing room always smelled. light and sweet, powdery but floral, and kinda like a good hug.

Steve bought me Issey Miyake for christmas and it's almost half gone already. it's my new favorite.



still stuck on my tiny little sample of Pucci, too... and i'll be so sad when it runs out, because i can't afford that shit.
