Ode to Sephora

I just received my first ever Sephora catalog in the mail, and oooh! Six little peel-and-sniff fragrance samples inside! Granted, I'd probably only wear one of the scents, but that's how sampling goes, and it's a pleasure to try them nonetheless.

(The one I'd wear: Ralph Lauren Romance, a scent I've long enjoyed but have never actually bought. The catalog calls it a "sparkling floral"; "a sensual essence of velvety woods, exhilarating florals and seductive musk." I get mostly "soft sophisticated floral," reminiscent of trying on expensive sweaters at Nordstrom's.)

So, ladies who love sniffing samples, get thyselves onto the Sephora mailing list. Men who want to please their women, get them a gift certificate.

As to the rest of the catalog, it seems to contain a lot of stuff I'd render fun but unnecessary, like sparkly powders in many scents and shades, and cosmetic cases in odd bright colors. But I've definitely got my eye on the Hershey's Lip Balm Trio Set in vanilla, almond, and milk chocolate flavors--all SPF 15!

And offline again I go for another extended set of days, most likely. The crazy-busy-ness of spring is upon us.

I love "Romance" it's one of my favorites. I'm still working on the bottle Mr. Bill got me as a present on our one and only engagement anniversary (and I've been married almost eight years...dude, that's an old bottle, by my standards). I don't wear it as often as my Channel 22 because the Romance seems to fade very quickly on me, so that it smells like next-to-nothing by lunch. Which makes me sad. I can double-dose my wrists for more fragrance longer, but then I'm afraid I'm overdoing it.

Further proof that we have excellent and matching tastes. :) Hmm, a new bottle may be in order, just to see if that boosts the staying power. Next anniversary gift, perhaps. ;)
