Marc Jacobs Decadence Eau de Parfum Haul

The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).

After walking around for a bit, I found a booth (forgot the name) that sold fragrances from several brands including Paco Rabanne (where I purchased the Invictus Gift Set as a birthday gift for my cousin) and Calvin Klein and Jimmy Choo and Marc Jacobs and Carolina Herrera (where I also purchased the Good Girl Gift Set for myself) and Jean Paul Gaultier and more (can’t remember the rest).

Initially, I was more interested in Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal, but sadly they were already sold out and the obnoxious sales assistant kept trying to push the new floral version on me, Scandal Paris. Thankfully, he had to leave the place for whatever reason and a much nicer and more helpful sales assistant took his place.

The accommodating sales assistant stepped aside (so I could see behind him), which is when I clocked Marc Jacobs Decadence Eau de Parfum. He informed me those were the last two pieces and that was that. I was sold!

Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Haul

Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum (for my uncle’s wife)

The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).

At the Guerlain booth, I repurchased Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum as a gift for my uncle’s wife (my mom is 1 of 6 siblings, so I’ve got a whole bunch of aunts and uncles, not to mention their spouses and offspring, just from that side alone).

Yves Saint Laurent Perfume Haul

YSL La Nuit de L’Homme Eau de Parfum (for my cousin)
YSL Black Opium Eau de Parfum (for his wife)

The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).

At the Yves Saint Laurent booth, I picked up the new 2019 La Nuit de L’Homme Eau de Parfum for my cousin and the original Black Opium Eau de Parfum for his wife, as birthday gifts for them. Both full sizes were reduced to 50% off which I thought was a pretty good deal.

Bath and Body Works Haulage (August)

As I mentioned earlier (dis) Bath & Body Works were having a “Buy 2, Get 3 Free” promo going on, at the beginning of August.

Between the “Buy 3, Get 3 Free” promo over at Boots (dis) and the “Buy 2, Get 3 Free” promo over at B&BW, I wasn’t sure what was going on (is this even Kuwait?), but I strongly approved! Since I’d just recently decluttered my bathroom (dis), I figured I had room for some new clutter (logic!)

Nordstrom Fragrance Sample Pack (June)

Get a Free Gift when you spend $85 on Women’s Fragrance. Discover your next favorite scent with samples from Diptyque and Tom Ford and Yves Saint Laurent and more.

Towards the end of June, Nordstrom came out with x2 more Sample Packs. One, was a mix of Makeup and Skincare (dis), which wasn’t particularly exciting. The other, was this Fragrance Sample Pack, which was very enticing!

For starters, it came with a sample of Mugler Angel Eau Croisière which I was dying to sniff! The pack also included several flankers of well-loved gourmands, Prada Candy and CH Good Girl and V&R Flowerbomb and YSL Black Opium and YSL Mon Paris! I was pretty excited about the samples from Atelier Cologne and Diptyque and Replica and my beloved Kilian as well! Also, most of these were new-new!

In hindsight though, I totally should’ve skipped the Fragrance Sample Pack (June) because it was mostly either floral-y florals (yuck) or overly sharp and citrus-y scents (namely Peach, ugh).

Thierry Mugler Angel Muse Eau de Parfum Haul

TANTALIZING. DELICIOUS. SUPREMELY FEMININE.

A new revelation disrupts the Angel Galaxy!

Cosmic explosions collide with magnetic attraction, to create an irresistible Eau de Parfum never experienced before.

Surrender now to Angel Muse, the new addictive fragrance that you will #HateToLove…

What in the actual…

I don’t hate to love. I just hate the commercial for Angel Muse lol

Angel Muse is the first gourmand vetiver for women. A noble woody fragrance, an incisive and uniquely MUGLER gourmand.

I’ve actually been meaning to purchase this baby for a minute now. In fact, I stopped by Harvey Nichols where it was being sold for KD 40+ and was this close to buying it. However, when I asked the sales assistant if there was a Gift with Purchase he said no, and when I asked for Samples he said he didn’t have any (for that price, you better be giving me something), and yet somehow, he was still trying to get me to purchase even more things from the Mugler counter. So, I bounced.

Several months later, during the Perfume & Makeup Exhibition, I stopped by the Mugler booth to give Aura a sniff, when the sales assistant informed me that the 30mL of Angel Muse was now reduced to only KD 10! It was such a good deal, that I bought the last two! They didn’t have their own cash register (had to to go to a nearby counter) but the sales assistant was nice enough to stash several samples of Aura (which I’ve been meaning to try out) in my shopping bag and instructed the guy at the cash register to give me even more fragrance samples as well! Score!
