Here’s to a wonderful 2012! Let it be filled with frizz-free hair, fabulous ‘fumes, happiness and fumie friendships!
Like many people, I hate New Year’s Resolutions but I continue to set resolutions. It’s more goal setting for me and I’m all about goals. Last year I made 6 resolutions and I did very well with each of them…excluding the “get crazy skinny” resolution which I realized was crazy stupid 4 hours after writing it down. It was just the post-holiday guilt talking. Most of my 2011 resolutions were personal and career oriented. As far as fragrance resolutions went, I did have a goal to find a citrus that I liked and I did thanks to Monsieur Balmain.
I’ve made my list of 2012 resolutions. I’ll spare you my health, mental and career related resolutions. You’re all wonderful fragrance friends, so I’m sure you’ll be interested in my fragrance related resolutions. So, here are my 2012 perfume related resolutions:
1. Find a white floral for me. – Theoretically, I should be a white floral person. But, I’m not. Tuberose smells like moth balls to me and gardenia smells like blue cheese. It’s not that I dislike white florals. In fact, I love most of the few that I’ve tried. It’s just that they fatigue me so! I can’t stand wearing most white florals for more than 20 minutes. This year I will find a white floral or possibly a few white florals for me. I’m going to tackle this like I did citrus in 2011. And it should be fun.
2. Stick to my full-size “to purchase” list. – I make lists of the full-size bottles that I would like to add to my collection. Do I stick to this list? Never. I get distracted by a sale or tempted by a fragrance that I fall into lust with. Or even worse…I fall for the limited edition scare-buys. I still don’t own the Serge Lutens that I love. I never replaced that bottle of Angel. I never stick to my list. This year I will try to. Why the hell do I still not own a bottle of Borneo 1834?
3. Finish a sample before buying a full-size bottle. – I’m pretty good about this, but not great. It makes sense to use up the sample before rushing out and buying a bottle. For me this is about space, my perfume real estate is valuable. I’m running out of room.
I plan on trying whatever I get my hands on. I should probably stop buying samples but I know if I make that a resolution it will fail.
Do you have any perfume related resolutions? If so, what are they?
