It's Purgatory Basket Friday! Our community project for today: find a sample you haven't been able to make up your mind about, give it a second chance.
As always, do chime in with your scent of the day even if you aren’t participating in the community project.
I'm wearing Tom Ford Santal Blush. I said when I reviewed it in 2011 that I liked it, thought it cost too much, and didn't think I'd lose any sleep over it. Sure enough, it hasn't kept me up once. All the same it's been taking up space in my purgatory basket for several years now so I'm giving it another try. And yes, it's even nicer than I remembered, but no, I still don't think it's worth the price. It is going with its (likewise spendy) cousin By Kilian Sacred Wood in the 'no' basket, and I'll go on happily wearing Diptyque Tam Dao.
Reminder: next Friday, 10/10, wear a fragrance you discovered via a blog or other online review, and link to the review if you can. Bonus points for not linking to a review on Now Smell This, since everyone commenting here already knows about Now Smell This — hopefully this will help all of us expand our perfume reading!
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2014, where I'll try to always have the next six or seven weeks mapped out in advance.
