Lets talk about Perfume

I absolutely love trying out new perfumes. I used to love when they would put a sample in the Sephora Play boxes every month. I would try them out and get a roller-ball if I really liked how it wore on me.

But then, I noticed just how many perfumes I was collecting and so for the last couple of years, I made it a point to wear perfume everyday. Ive even put those small little samples into short-term projects so I could use and enjoy them, instead of them wasting away in a small drawer.

This is how many of those samples Ive accumulated.

I even started collecting those adorable deluxe sized perfumes.

I mean, seriously…..they look fantastic when on display. Surely Im not the only one who feels this way.

I don’t have many roller-balls, but they do fill up a coffee mug (that’s how I store them).

At least I knew enough not to buy any full sized perfumes. I recently had to declutter a full size Elizabeth Taylor perfume that had probably been sitting in a drawer for 12 years.

The best part about wearing perfume everyday is that you do actually use it up. Granted, Ive only used up samples, but its a start!

Ive actually used up 9 samples! It might not seem like a lot, but considering they were only ‘collecting dust’ I think Im doing great!

Do you have a perfume collection? Has it gotten out of hand? Are you trying to use them up? Let me know in the comments.

March 2019 Empties

I cannot believe it is already April! This year is flying by.

I have really been trying to use up all of my old deluxe samples and foil packets that have been accumulating the past couple of years.

This month I was able to finish up a makeup ‘foil’, 2 body wash deluxe sample bottles, a shampoo sample, two face masks, a cleanser and a deodorant sample! I also finished off three perfume samples – one was even put in a recent project!

This months empties total is $112.99!

What did you finish up last month? Did you recently use up a difficult product?
