Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular (Limited Edition) Perfume
AND The Beach Eaus – A Month of Sniffing Beach & Ocean Inspired Perfumes
I’m not going to get into all of my weird phobias, but I will say this, a cruise is my personal version of hell. I’m not judging anyone that enjoys them. I’m just saying that I have issues and it’s like a cruise combines all of my phobias and has the audacity of charging me money for it.

Do you rotate your perfumes for the season? Do you have perfumes that you wear only in certain seasons?
