Weird perfume review #2

.

Perfume sample #2 from my box of sarcastic scents is Divin’ Enfant.

.

.

Enfant is French for child, and after one whiff I’m betting Divin’ means divine… because that’s exactly what it is.

.

.

Fabulous…. in a delightfully odd way. Crisp and light, with a spicy almost honeyed base and just a hint of baby powder. I don’t know who wrote the description, but I smell neither leather or cold tobacco.

.

.

But I understand the angel demon reference. This scent is both sweet and sultry.

.

.

I honestly don’t smell the orange or peach, more like a rich creamy vanilla…. but either way, the #2 sample is rich, multi layered, long lasting and getting a definite thumbs up from me.

.

Perfume with a sense of humor.

.

My box of crazy French perfume samples came today.

.

.

And the company seemed pretty sure of themselves.

.

.

I’m not sure I actually need my perfume to rebel, but whatever.

.

.

The first one I tried….

.

.

Was definitely…. different. I know people who would like this scent, but it was too heavily spiced and cloying for me.

.

.

Medicinal camphor, incense and prunes. What’s not love?

😳

.

I had to.

.

I mean really, how could I not?

.

.

I broke down and ordered a sampler pack of perfume from a French company that takes themselves as seriously as I do. In other words, not at all.

.

.

They embrace the bad reviews of their products and even use them in their advertising campaigns.

.

.

And since I value a sense of humor above all else, I can’t imagine I’ll be disappointed. But don’t for a minute think is a gimmick. They don’t exactly give their stuff away.

.

.

I Am Trash is one of their most popular fragrances. A revolting name, but an interesting idea.

.

.

The ultimate in recycling. And as long as stray dogs don’t start following me down the street? It should be fun trying.

.

Products no one needs.

.

My only question is why anyone makes these things in the first place.

.

.

I prefer my clams in chowder with heavy cream thank you very much.

.

.

Oh, hell no. I can only drink if the BeeGees are playing?

Trust me, if the BeeGees are playing…. I’ll need more not less.

.

.

I’m sorry, but they don’t. Less really is more.

.

.

While this is rather cute? It’s also a great way to take out an eye. Weaponized mallows are over the top, even for me.

.

.

.

.

No. Aside from the fact the packaging seems to be marketed for 6 year old girls…

I refuse to wear a perfume named Juicy Bunny on sheer principle.

.

Random drivel I have to share.

.

For all my pun loving friends..

.

.

Egg yolks…. they don’t always crack you up.

This next one literally made me snort.

.

.

Admit it, you want one.

Or six.

.

.

We passed this little cutie the other day on a back road.

.

.

Perfume…. that smells like gin?

When I have a few too many I tend to spill it on myself. Think of all the time that will save.

And finally…

.

.

Oh sweet Jesus, no.

First kale killed the dinosaurs… and now my tomato wants a piece of me?

Stop the world. I want to get off.

.

I like…

 

I like

The sign a friend of mine saw while on vacation in Barbados last week.

I don’t like –

That she was in Barbados and I was not.

 

 

I like

Jo Malone’s line of products.

Check them out.

I don’t like –

Her price tags  ($35 for a bar of soap? For that price, I want someone to wash me with it. Preferably Bradley Cooper or Johnny Depp)  which is why I buy the itty bitty sampler bottles.

$155 on the site, slightly less on Amazon… if you can find them.

No one around here sells Jo Malone and I’m not buying a full bottle until I test it.

But they rock!

Trust me on this…

(See how I snuck a Game of Thrones reference in there?)

I like

The sound of this drink for summer.

I don’t like –

The idea of walking around with a blue tongue all night.

(Or day, who are we kidding?)

I like

The tee shirt I found the other day.

I don’t like –

The fact that there are only 4 more episodes of Thrones left.

Sigh.
