[Volume 8 Issue 11, #1815]
我覺得自己對香水有一種無法解釋嘅鐘情, 如果唔係一路以來嘅話, 咁至少可以話係最近.. 以前要買香水肯定係百貨公司或免稅店, 不過近呢兩年因為資訊發達, 才猶如發現新大陸般, 知道原來自己一路以來都錯過咗好多warehouse sales, 原來比市價平至少一半嘅價錢就可以買得到!! 雖然未必係新貨, 但係平過出面咁多, 我真係唔介意, 況且香水邊有過時㗎?? 最多係過期嘅啫, 但係我覺得可以收存得好嘅話, 應該唔易變質囉.. 所以一年內去幾個warehouse sales(血拼), 我都會趁平入返兩支度擺喺屋企「看門口」, 多數係鐘意個(清淡幽香而唔係花粉果香嗰種)味道, 有時都可能係喜歡個香水樽嘅設計, 呵呵!! 事關我出門都習慣搽啲香水嘅, 一來一身香噴噴咁個人都另舍醒神, 二來有位朋友話香水在玄學角度上係可以淨化一個人嘅心靈(!!), 不過信唔信就睇個人喇, 我就顧慮前者多啲.. 唔計用緊呢支, 家陣屋企一共有四支香水作後備, 雖然你會覺得好誇張, 但係我平均每三個月就用一支(我身體表面積大, 自然用多啲㗎啦, 哈哈!!), 存貨都算差不多㗎喇~~ :p
i think i have an unexplained obsession with perfumes, if not all these while then at least recently.. when i need to buy perfumes last time, it's either departmental stores or duty free shops, but with the more informative era in the recent couple of years, only i realized i have actually missed out a lot of warehouse sales, from which i could have bought the perfumes at least half the price cheaper!! though may not be brand new stock, i really don't mind at all if they are so much cheaper than retail price, moreover perfumes won't get outdated right?? the most they can expired but i guess if we keep them in good condition the quality won't easily deteriorate.. hence i would go to a few warehouse sales in a year, stock-in a couple of perfumes and bring home as "back-ups", usually because i like the (refreshing and crisp but not powdery or fruity sweet) scent, but sometimes could be the design of the bottles too, hehe!! i am used to put on some perfume whenever i leave home, i feel good if i smell good, also a friend told me from the perspective of the metaphysics perfume can actually purify our souls (!!), believe it or not but i guess i'm for the former reason.. excluding the one i am currently using, now that i have four at home and you may think that is too much, but i can use up one bottle within an average of three months (my body surface area is huge, so i naturally need to use more, haha!!), so the stock seems to be just right~~ :p

    5. Nowadays, there are many fakes in the market, and they look so real. Previously, I saw my colleague going crazy over the Justin Bieber perfume, and it only cost RM50+. The packaging and outlook look so real, I asked her where she bought it, she said she bought from warehouse sale.. I don't know which warehouse she is talking about, but my impression is that, if want to buy the genuine ones, it must be from the original counter in shopping centres..No?

    6. If "chao woo" + sweat + perfume mixed together, then I wonder will smell like what?

      errr, i have been buying the perfumes from warehouse sales woh, and the warehouse sales specifically mentioned their own brands, somemore around RM100 so i think shouldn't be fake one gua?? @_@"

  3. I used to buy a lot and used a lot too but they're mighty expensive now. Good ones, definitely over RM200-300. No warehouse sale here unfortunately...so I would opt for the cheaper less well-known brands, around RM100...not as nice but what to do? And have to use very sparingly some more...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah, now perfumes getting more and more expensive at least RM200 a bottle for good ones i guess.. but warehouse sales can get around RM100 a bottle lah.. next time if i happen to know any, i will let you know.. you may want to fly over!! :p

  4. 1 bottle in three months? Wahhhhh!!!! You think you're using Ridsect or what? Hmmmm...how come I did not smell anything when I met you? Or maybe I did not notice. Senses numb after all the nice food we had...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. One thing I've noticed...something may smell nice on a person but it may not smell nice on another - it will depend on the person's natural body smell...and if you have body odour, the more you spray, the worse it becomes.

      Delete
    2. errr, i think so lah but cannot remember how long a bottle last exactly.. next bottle i shall mark down the opening date, haha!! errr, i won't put too much lah, furthermore mine are eau de toilette which doesn't last very long, probably 4 hours.. so that day it was during dinner, sure all smell also habis~~ :D

      ah maybe you are right, it depends how the fragrance blends with your natural body odour~~

      Delete
    3. Now you got me thinking about how fast I use my perfumes. They all last over a year since I rotate so many bottles everyday until habis.. However my favorites are still the Ralph Lauren bottles which finished faster cos I spray them from my head to my neck and down my shirts! Sometimes I even sprayed onto my pants too! I know I sound nuts but I spray generously for good Feng shui mah.

    2. hmmm, perhaps you should use perfumed deodorant instead?? :)

    3. Oh no....pressing my nose now. This Sharon needs to detox her body often since she worries her sweat might stink. I thought perfumes could help to hide the body odor. When I smell gym members sweating during exercise, I wanted to die. They smelled like bloody Skunks!!

      Delete
  6. I also like perfumes too.. normally I buy one and use it till it finishes before opening another... cos I heard that once it is opened, the fragrant will not last..

    1. yeah, i also will focus using one bottle at a time, after finish only open another.. but then i will buy a few from the warehouse sales to keep as backups lah~~ :)

  7. I have to learn from you la SK.

    I keep on buying perfume at full retail price.

    It's not as if perfume, we need to follow trends, right?

    Must save money and buy warehouse sale perfume and use the saved $$$ on shoes instead. :-P

    1. never mind lah, you orang kaya sure don't mind getting them at full retail price over shopping mall counters, haha.. next time go with Anay to borong the perfumes from the warehouse sales!! :p

    2. Aiyoooo I am shocked this Mak Glam so kaya la to buy at full retail price. I am cheap skate and would buy only Lelong prices or from shops with CLOSING DOWN SALES banners outside. I find that Singapore often have cheap sales everywhere for perfumes and they sell many brands that are not available here. Example - David Beckham perfume.

  9. Good morning, SK and all! 'Perfume can actually purify our souls'! I like this quote! Perfume definitely makes us feel good! But I hardly use it at work. Instead I use perfume-free deodorant. You can imagine how we sweat at work.

    1. yeah, the friend actually told me this.. but i don't really care, if it's real then that would be good for me, if it isn't then at least i keep myself smelling good, haha!! hmmm, i can understand you may sweat a lot at work huh?? deodorant would be a better choice.. but if you are not working, sure you can put on nice perfumes and you will smell sexy~~ :p

    I know certain people spray the perfume like no need cost one, once they walk into the room or walk pass me, the smell is there for minutes!! Ahh I think that's just too much la, macam la they spray the whole bottle on the body >.<

    1. Last time when I was working, I spray a little la. But ever since pregnant, cut down the usage already cause nose a bit allergy to perfumes, and now ever since Aden is here, lagi lah seldom use, don't wanna let little boy smell too much perfume ma!
      So my perfume can last for yearssss now!

    2. Same goes to my hubby, bought him a bottle of Hugo perfume many years ago, erm if not mistaken it was in 2004, and believe it or not the perfume is still here, not even use til half!! True! Haha xD
      He just din't have the habits to use perfume....

      Delete
    3. hahaha, you asked until like i don't look like one who will use perfume like that~~ i have a habit of using lah, since many years ago, i guess when i started to go college.. of course i spray moderately lah, just on my wrists and also my neck and a little on my clothes only, errr, will that be too much?? :p

      wah, almost 10 years already and yet still have not used half of it?? but i think the Hugo perfume is quite a large bottle about 125ml or 150ml?? mine are usually 50ml-100ml only, maybe that's why i use fast.. but then 10 years!!! unbelievable lah~~ :p

      Delete
    4. Wah! This Hayley's hubby kept his perfume since 2004 until now! Anay faints. I think KL people needs to spray more cos the city is so stressful with highest pollution. So we need to smell good and walk with confidence. I would conclude that more ladies use perfume than men in the offices. They have better sense of grooming and conscious of their well being. Most men are ignorant except Thambee and Anay who are hardcore Metrosexuals.

    3. hehehehe, not all guys+perfume=really smells really really good woh.. it has to depend on the perfume used, and then whether they put on the right amount - not too much and not too less.. and also how well the perfume blends with the natural body odor..

      hehe, actually i cannot smell my own perfume lah.. i guess if i can smell myself perhaps i have put too much already instead??

    1. Good quality perfume won't easily deteriorate, can last very long, the fragrance is still there, the colour won't change and even the liquidity form is doesn't get thicken. For those who always use should know the difference. Because we always use it, I'm sure our perfume finish quickly too.

    6. haha, i am different from you.. usually i will get the smaller bottle so that i can finish it faster and then change to a new one.. only if it's the fragrance i like very much, then i will buy more than once and the bigger bottle.. :p

      yeah, i think have to keep the perfume in cool dry place and away from direct sunlight or heat, this way the perfume can actually last longer and won't spoil lah.. yeah, i actually quite like PRL perfumes, especially the PRL Blue is one of my favorite all time.. this #1 and #3 i got from the warehouse sales, i bought two because 1 bottle is RM80 but 2 bottles at RM100 total.. so you see why i have two.. haha!!

    1. My hubby manage get a few bottles of Bvlgary from warehouse sale. It was introduced by his friend. The price is quite reasonable too. I asked him to get me one or two, but his friend said they have more stock for men. They have lesser range for the ladies.

    2. I guess ladies perfume is more "laku & laris" out there. It is easy to earn women's money than men....

    3. hahaha, i think i have got the same taste as your hubby leh.. i love this Bvlgary Aqva Marine very much, this should be my third bottle already.. i also like very light, refreshing and crisp smell.. don't like those very heavy and fruity and powdery ones..

      oh, your hubby also goes to warehouse sales?? smart lah!! and you should go with him together lah.. though they can earn your money easily, but at least you also save a lot compared to buying from departmental stores mah..

  24. Reading this post today is just like a reminder to me. I am travelling soon, I must go getting myself a bottle of a fragrance.

    I agree with Anay, it is good to smell good. Smell good and make you feel good too.

    It is also a good manner to smell good all the time. I hate people who has strong body odour . Yuck! Disgusting.
