I was really happy with my previous haulage from Nordstrom (here) so when I noticed that they were having another really cool promo, I decided to place another order. Plus, it was mah birthday (not that I needed an excuse to shop, since we’ve already established that I’m clearly a shopaholic). Basically, the promo was if you spent $135 (around KD 40) on Fragrances (including Eau de Toilettes and Eau de Perfumes and even Scented Candles), you qualified for the Gift With Purchase, which happened to be a pack of Fragrance Samples (haulage here)! As you can see, the items arrived individually wrapped in packing paper, in a rather large (practically empty) cardboard box also stuffed with packing paper. It’s not pretty, but hey, it works (everything arrived safely and undamaged)!

I was at Sephora shopping for a birthday present for someone who was extremely difficult to shop for. While there, I hunted down a few of the Perfumes on my list that I’ve been dying to sniff (mostly Lancome). On a whim, I decided to check out some of the “private” and “exclusive” luxury fragrances (Tom Ford and Armani Prive and Maison Lancome and Geurlain and so on) and accidentally stumbled upon Kilian! I don’t know if an invisibility spell was cast on the display, but somehow I’ve never ever noticed it before! As per usual, there were no sales assistants designated to any of the displays and customers were just left to their own devices. I searched for Back to Black (because frag-heads on YouTube rave about it all the time) but couldn’t find it. I did however find my new favorite Perfume of life, but more on that towards the end of this post…
Invigorating Sicilian cedar melds with the crisp vibrancy of apple and the guileless charm of the bluebell, to evoke the essence of a South Italian summer.
The freshness of bamboo nestles amid a glorious feminine bouquet of decadent jasmine and delicate white rose.
Redolent citron wood is entwined with voluptuous amber and a suggestive caress of musk.
Summer just isn’t summer without my beloved Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue! I’d run out of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette (reviewed here) so I picked up a new one, at Harvey Nichols. As a gift with purchase (gwp) I was also given a rather large Messenger Bag that had 007 embossed on it and a deluxe sample of Hugo Boss Red Shower Gel (pretty sure it’s for men but that’s ok because as long as they’re either woods-y or oceanic, I tend to enjoy certain masculine scents). The Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Body Scrub Gel was purchased at Mishref Fair Grounds during the Perfume & Makeup Exhibition.
