Perfume Tag

I've been in a fragrance kick lately so I figured why not do this tag I found at Stefanie's blog. I probably won't specifically tag anyone because to be honest I have no idea who still reads this blog (or if there's even any *sobs*). So here we go!

1. Fragrance with the most memory attached?
One is Jean Paul Gaultier Classique, which my mom used for the very long time. I remember when I was young I used to sneak into my parents' bedroom and play in front of her vanity. I ALWAYS sniffed this perfume my mom bought from Paris but since it looked expensive I was too scared to actually spritz it on myself (lol what a scaredy cat I was!). Then she ran out of it and never purchased it again for some reason (I know it's quite expensive buying perfume back home, plus the concern of their authenticity was also questionable).

Another one is Clinique Happy Heart, my signature scent back in college.

2. Your most favorite perfume bottle?
Yep, it's none other than the Jean Paul Gaultier Classique :) Mostly because it has boobies.
I also love L'occitane Cherry Blossom's bottle.

3. Which perfume do you wish was still produced? (i.e. that was limited edition or has now been discontinued?)
The Body Shop Moonflower, which was my all time favorite back in high school. I almost bawled when they were dc-ed and went panicky to buy the overpriced perfume oils off Ebay.

4. Favourite perfume advertising campaign?
J'adore by Christian Dior. You know the one with Charlize Theron strutting her swaggah while undressing herself? I'm always stunned by how she said "J'adore~ Dior~" ... OMG it's so sexy French-o-licious!!!!

5. Best perfume related discovery?
Definitely Etsy and other e-tailer perfumes, they're mostly affordable and offer sample vials. 
My favorite so far are Haus of Gloi, Wylde Ivy, and Lunableu (not Etsy).

6. Perfume that you expected to love and didn't?
Gucci Envy Me; I remember reading the notes and went to buy it because I was so sure it was for me but then I wore it and it was sort of underwhelming. I liked it tho, but it was just not as amazing as I hoped.

7. Perfume you would give your left arm for? 
Probably Bond no.9 New Haarlem. I'm obsessed with it at the moment but holy saint peter on popsicle stick, THE PRICE!!!

8. Top 5 Favourite perfume notes?
  • Blackberry
  • Vanilla
  • Amber
  • Musk
  • Orange Blossom
9. Perfume you wish would die a horrible death?
The Sécrétions Magnifiques by Etat Libre d'Orange.
Why? Because it smells like semen (yes I did sniff it out of curiosity).

10. Next perfume(s) on your 'to buy' list? 
I feel like I need a full size of Fresh Sugar Lychee, DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Juice, Deseo and probably another bottle of Avon Imari Seduction since I'm running low. As for indie e-tailer perfumes, my list is not as short:
 - Wiggle Perfumes : Speakeasy Vanilla, Honeysuckle Sweet Tea, Sakura
- The Mindful Mushroom : Victorian Princess, Faery Queen, The Poet, Rag Doll, Rampage, Ritual, Siren, Wench, Seelie Court
- Haus of Gloi : Troika
- Flourish Bath Body : Almond Milk, Vanilla Amber

Please feel free to do this and let me know when you do !!! : )

How do you like the Gaultier? I have been toying with making the purchase but it is so hard to tell what it will smell like on me since I only ever smell it in the store where there are 138792 other scents wafting through the air as well. LOL

I really want Bond No.9's China town. I may steal this tag from you with a link to your post.

@Shan: AWwwwwwwww thanks, love! <3 how u been?

@Nalina: Classique smells really cozy to me (but it may be biased lol) but the scent is overall powdery

@Pandora: Sure thing! Let me know if you decide to try China Town, I've heard good things!
