Our live-in chauffeur was traveling back to India and specifically asked for Perfume to gift to his wife. Apparently, the last handful of Perfumes I’d given him (for his previous visit) were such a huge hit with the wife! She not only liked the scents, but also their performances, as she went about her day in the village, according to him. He said, every time his wife’s sisters would visit her, they’d all ask for a spritz from her Perfume Collection! So, when he asked me to give him any other Perfumes that I didn’t want. Emboldened by the success of the previous scents, I gave him the following:
On April 6 I found myself at Zara (the Marina Mall branch). It was around closing time (literally no time to try anything on), but there was a long line of people at the cash register, so I figured I at least had enough time to give the perfume testers a sniff and possibly pick one or two up. In all honestly, I was hoping for something similar to the long-discontinued Zara Black Peony Eau de Toilette (reviewed here). Unfortunately, some of the perfume testers wouldn’t even spritz (the atomizer had been damaged after being manhandled, I presume) while other perfume testers were straight up empty! One of the Sales Assistants walked over to me and suggested I give Zara Cashmere Rose a try. He said that they’d knocked the price down because they were phasing it out (only in Kuwait, because as far as I know, Zara Cashmere Rose is still production abroad) and as such, he’d stocked up, for his wife. The tester was at the check-out counter so I followed him there. The scent was beautiful and I said so, to which he replied, “just like you” (which I thought was inappropriate). I didn’t know it at the time but apparently I’d snatched up the very last Zara Cashmere Rose and I’ve been showing it a lot of love ever since!
