Last week, we all confessed our perfume sins in the quarterly Now Smell This Damage Poll. I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve been feeling the need for some moral high ground ever since. So I propose a Damage Poll spin-off: the Savings Poll! Now that we’ve done our perfume penance, let’s applaud ourselves for all the times that we desperately wanted to buy a perfume and then totally didn’t. Brag to us about your unshakeable restraint in the face of irresistible perfumes or prices! I’ll go first:
L’Artisan Parfumeur Safran Troublant ($140)
L’Artisan Parfumeur Bois Farine ($140)
L’Artisan Parfumeur Poivre Piquant ($140)
The moment I saw my three favorite L’Artisans in the “last chance to buy” section of the L’Artisan website, I started saving up for backup bottles. I decided to hold off after noticing that L’Artisan mysteriously transferred them into a new category called “Les Exclusifs” a few weeks later. My perfume paranoia will probably win out eventually, but for now, I’ve saved a grand total of $420! That’s 1.15 Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses! 2.04 Serge Lutens bell jars! 42 Tupac bobble heads!
Your turn! Tupac bobble heads are $9.99, just in case you need the conversion rate.
