Happy Best Buy Friday! Our community project today: tell us about your most amazing fragrance discount or other rare find. Hat tip to Oakland Fresca for the topic suggestion!
What did you pick?
As always, do chime in with your scent of the day even if you’re not participating in the community project.
My pick is Fendi Theorema, which I'm now wearing for the 6th day in a row — so you knew I'd have to shoehorn it into this topic somehow, right? I bought my first bottle in early 2005, right around the same time I started this blog, in one of those mall kiosks. I can't remember what I paid for it except that it was not much. It was admittedly neither a rare find nor an amazing discount, but when I consider how much joy I've gotten out of it (and how beautifully it has kept all these years) I think it still qualifies as a best buy.
More recently, a very kind reader sent me a pristine bottle in box, and even though it is probably just as old, it smells even better.
Reminder: next Friday, 9 October, wear a fragrance from perfumer Dominique Ropion, if you have one.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2015, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.
