EauPen Thread – Brands That Don’t Work for You

Chanel Cristalle
Is there a brand of perfumes that don’t really “click” with you?
I think many of us have a brand that we’ve tried but never really connected with us. It’s not about the perfumes. It’s us. Something about their style doesn’t work for us for whatever reason.

Question of the Week: We’ve got one more weekend for the Sephora Rouge 20% off sale. What the one item that you think everyone should pick up?
