Delicious Fragrance

I'm not a big perfume person. I tend to loathe the scents hidden in magazine perfume adds. My eyes tear up just from walking through the heavily perfumed section of a department store. In fact, until recently, I would have told you that the only perfume I could tolerate was my best friend's bottle of So Delicious. So that's why I was a little aprehensive when I put in an order for two perfume samples at Lucky Scent. They arrived today in tiny little vials, and I timidly dipped into Serendipity 3's Serendipitous.

Let me just say YUM.

It's a sticky-sweet, but not overpowering scent. I don't smell too much chocolate, but it brings to mind that lovely waffle cone smell that wafts in as you enter Ben & Jerry's. With a touch of melted vanilla and chocolate ice cream. Delicious. I keep wanting to eat my wrists.

My other perfume was Pilar & Lucy's The Exact Friction of Stars. I haven't tried it yet, but we shall see...

In honor of my newly found love for perfume, I thought I'd pick out some fragrances that would be perfect for Rosh Hashona, which starts tonight for us Jews.

What else could I pick besides apples and honey? Above you can see Gathering Apples by CB I Hate Perfume and Honey by Demeter Fragrances.

Gathering Apples supposedly smells like "thousands of ripe red Mackintosh apples and a bit of old weathered wood from the bushel baskets" ... "It's a happy fragrance, a day spent in an apple orchard dancing around the apples trees and sneaking bites of crisp, juicy fruit."

Honey is "Sex in a bottle. Sugary dripping nectar..."

Mmmmm. Tasty, religious, and seasonally appropriate. If you needed an excuse to buy perfume, this is it.

Yum! I love honey, and I love Demeter products. This could be a match made in heaven...

How was your experience with LuckyScent? There are several things I'd really like to sample from them, so I'm interested to hear how that went.
Also, where did you find the Demeter Honey? I can't find it anywhere on LuckyScent's site, and I WANT it!

LuckyScent was great - easy, fast shipping, etc. The Demeter Honey was from I linked to it in my post. It does sound wonderful, doesn't it? Yum!
