A couple of years ago, someone I worked with gave me one of those double-ended makeup tubes. I only accepted it to be polite; one end was this garishly sparkly pink gloss that felt like coating my lips in epoxy resin. The other side was a perfume that, to be honest, I couldn't even really smell at the time. It wasn't until last summer when I finally had my sinuses fixed that I discovered I love, love, love Victoria's Secret Love Spell perfume. I still carry that tube in my purse and use it sometimes--but sparingly, because every VS I visit carries the lotions, but not the perfume. It's too bad, because I always get compliments when I wear it.

Another of my favorite perfumes is, shamefully, Britney Spears' Fantasy. I normally eschew anything trendy, anything with teen pop star labels. But one day at work I was walking behind a woman who was going into the fitting room, and she smelled absolutely amazing. So much so that I actually said "You might think I'm a freak, but you smell delicious!" And then I had to go and get some, because it really does smell amazing--sort of sugary and candy-like, but not sickeningly so.

Those are my two favorites; there's a new site for perfume reviews that's just started that might help you find some other ideas. So far they have review of Chanel No. 5, Versace Blue Jeans, and Christian Dior Addict. The site, perfume blog, has just gotten off the ground, but if you like perfumes or are searching for a new fragrance, it should be a great resource. You're able to leave comments on reviews, too, and leave your own opinion. I'm looking forward to seeing this site expand--there are a lot of fragrances I'm curious about.

    You can get VS Love Spell online through amazon.com, that's where I found it for one of DH's step-granddaughters for Christmas. And it's not expensive, either, which is pretty cool.
