What is the latest addition to your collection?
Are you happy with it?
Or are you feeling buyer’s remorse?
Do you feel it fits in with what you have?
Does it fill a gap in your collection?
Or is it redundant?
In blatant ignorance of all my rules, I blind bought (Yes, totally unsniffed, people! And it felt great! *takes defiant stance*) a bottle of Reminiscence Do Ré, a gourmand heliotrope fragrance I became obsessed with because I heard some people, whose taste is close to mine, talking enthusiastically about it. Vanessa smelled the range as well on her trip to Budapest and commented very favorably on them, Do Ré was her favorite, I believe.
So am I happy I bought it? Well, I shouldn’t have broken my own rules, I shouldn’t have bought it unsniffed, I shouldn’t have bla bla bla – hell, yes! I’m very happy with it!*
It fills a heliotrope/almond shaped hole in my collection perfectly and it was a great deal and best of all, it was financed by selling something else.
So all around, I’m very content and so far able to ignore the tiny nagging voice complaining about rules and regulations.
What about you?
*And no, I don’t count this one towards my twelve bottles of the year. It is a “bottle that exists outside of rules and regulations”, I hope that is fine with all of you. 😉
