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.

November & December 2018 Empties

For 2019 I will be doing my Empties posts a little different than in the past. I will be including a photo of the empties but I will not be listing every product. Instead, I will be posting the estimated cost of my empties and talking about the standout products Ive used.

I did not finish a lot of items in November, and I slacked off on posting the last couple of months, so I decided to combine November and December’s empties.

Did you finish anything last year?
