TOTD: Tamara hopes for full bottle love

File:Pedro Américo - A Noite e os Gênios do Estudo e do Amor.jpgFrom a private correspondence between me, LBV, and my perfume friend Tamara. In this installment, Tamara struggles with her expectations and certain realities while searching for true love. I bet you all can relate. I certainly can.

“I'm about to go to the dreaded mall this morning to go see if I like Laura Mercier's Minuit Enchanté cause from what I've read about it, it seems like it's right up my smelly alley ….”

a few hours later:File:Rosetti01.jpg

“But you know what I did? I went to try the L.M. Minuit Enchanté and what the hell! It was a screechy mish mash of notes; it was (and still is) painful cause I'm trying to give it the full on it deserves (poor  nasty thing) but bleeech! I am so glad I didn't have to pay for that sample. But I do have it  now if you’re interested, ha!

Sooo I take it back what I said before...no I don't . I'll ADD to what I was saying before. I don't just love decadence, I also love earthy and green. Whoooweee girl, I came home (sorely disappointed but so thankful I didn't do a blind buy based on the hype of it.)

.. cause I was so positive I would just cave and get it.  Don't you hate when that happens?  When you wanted so badly to love something and you don't, you can’t. I suppose it's the hunt that really is the fun part but Lord when you find FB worthy love it's joy. Aggghhh, I'm rambling (sorry!) .. .cause I was so positive I would just cave and get it.  Don't you hate when that happens?  When you wanted so badly to love something and you don't, you can’t.

Tamara, sweetie, ramble away!
