Because sometimes you do get what you paid for… and then some.

Years ago I had a wonderful little purse size green bottle of perfume with a funky top. It was a lightly herbal, somewhat floral refreshing scent. Naturally I couldn’t remember the name of it, but I knew it wasn’t expensive so I went shopping on Amazon just on the off chance I’d see it.

Green, funky top, inexpensive…needing a new small bottle for my purse, I thought that could be it and ordered one.

I was wrong.

So very wrong. The stupid thing towers above every other bottle I own and is most definitely not purse sized.

Here it is next to a bottle of Chanel for scale. I’m sure it’s my fault for not noting the size when I bought it, but damn. Now I’m stuck with what seems like a gallon.

  1. I have never seen a bottle of perfume that big before. You can definitely see the difference when you put the two bottles together.
    I bought a branded bag once and when it arrived I felt quite deflated as it looked better on the photo but bulky and not as appealing when it arrived. ☺

      1. I saw that on Amazon when I was looking for another bottle of after shave, which finally ran out after five years or so. If my after shave balm bottle held four ounces and lasted five years, that bottle of bay rum would last one hundred sixty years. That’s one good smelling corpse.

    1. I forgot to mention that I had that very same mirror your perfume bottles are on. It belonged to my mom, she bought it in 1963 or so. Sadly when I got a divorce my stupid ex-husband didn’t let me go back for the rest of my stuff when I left. He sold what remained of my belongings in a yard sale, that bastard. But I believe in karma and I’m pretty sure it’s creeping up on his dumb ass.
