Trial and Test….

22 Mar

How awesome is it when you get sent a freebie in the mail to try out? I sign up for everything. I get cookies, cereal, drink mixes, detergent, dryer sheets, shampoo, you name it. If it’s out there for the trying and it’s FREE? I’m on it like white on rice.

Today, I went to my mailbox to see a padded envelope from Elle Magazine. Oh, we LOVE padded envelopes. Padded envelopes = SAMPLES! Inside was a nice letter saying as a premier member of Elle’s Inner Circle Panel, I was chosen from a select few to receive a sample of Michael Kors Signature Fragrance . I actually was very excited! First, I had received a small vial in a Sephora purchase about three months ago and really liked it then. Second, I never knew Michael Kors had a scent and was happy to see one of my favorite designers was going along the fragrance route as well. And third… Shazam!…. I get to give my opinion. Who likes to talk?…. Sassy likes to talk! It was petty cool too since I had a stressful day, and “retail therapy” was on my agenda. I almost bought another perfume I’ve been eyeing for a while but I’m glad I didn’t–I got a free one instead!

The product insert card says, “We are excited to share with you Michael Kors signature fragrance. The ultimate luxury experience. Tuberose reinvented with rich, creamy florals enhanced by sensual woods.” When I smell it, what comes to mind is sophisticatedly sexy. The rich florals aren’t heavy but…. definitely alluring! I let Mr. Sassy smell it. He smiled and said, “That’s the scent worn by a dangerous woman!” I don’t think he meant James Bond 007 dangerous. I think he meant, “Holy high heels, I’ve been sexified!” dangerous. Yeah, I can see that. I can smell that.

So, tomorrow I’ll have a new scent to wear for a few weeks. I’m excited!! I like it, and I’m anxious to see if anyone notices it on me. It is quite different from the type of perfumes I usually wear, so we’ll see if I can turn some heads with this. (PS: Have YOU used it before? If so, I want to know! What do YOU think about it?)

    I’m going to suggest a fragrance for you but not sure you can get it anywhere but online. I actually won it last year and while I’m very choosy about what I can wear due to allergies and sinus problems, this one nails it and I plan to order it, even tho the cost will break my budget. It’s from the Laura Mercier line (you can google it) and it’s called Nuits Enchantees and I’ve received tons of compliments on it including from my s-i-l who says I smell like a French Whore but then says, “in a good way Mom. That’s a compliment!” Well, ummm, ok, if he says so. Seriously, it’s one of the few that I can honestly say I love wearing and it makes me feel good.

    The other products I’d recommend are from the Origins line (again, you can look it up). I LOVE (love, love love!) anything with ginger in it. I was SO in hopes that Avon would bring back their Hawaiian White Ginger but it’s a no go. I wore it back in the 60’s and it’s all I wore. Loved it. Anyway, Origins Ginger Souffle is THE BEST! OMG, I could eat that stuff! And the Origins Lotion is great, too. Those are the only 2 products in that line I’ve tried but I’m sure I’d love anything in their Ginger scent. OK, that’s it Sassy. You have my 2¢ worth for now. LOVE this site and LOVE your style of writing!

      I am a HUGE ginger fan myself. It is really hard to find any perfumes nowadays with notes of ginger in it. My mother liked Avon’s Hawaiian White Ginger. I have connections and will have to see if they ever bring back the “old school” lines. They do sometimes. Heck, I was a Sweet Honesty girl myself. I will have to test the Ginger Souffle. A good friend of mine was the manager of the Macy’s kiosk. I’ll ask her and see if she can hook me up!! Thanks for the suggestions Rosie!
