I like to try samples of perfume before I decide which ones I'd like to purchase. This is helpful because it saves me money (blind buying is not for me). It also allows me to spend some time with fragrances for more than one application (to see if I really am going to long-term enjoy them).
I researched online and got it down to the 2 that I most wanted to try. Then I went to the My Custom Scent website to see if they sold them. Of course they did!! They have others I want to try too, but these were the ones I ordered on that particular day, and then I waited for them to show up on my doorstep.
"So Scandal" I read repeatedly in reviews, smells like gummy bears. Oh yep, I wanted to try that one. And "Scandal Le Parfum" was said in customer reviews, to smell like Hypnotic Poison. Yep, I wanted to try that one. I love Hypnotic Poison. Both of the rumors were false, or at least they were false to me.
You can get your samples from My Custom Scent in different sizes. Above you see I received the "So Scandal" in 2ml and the "Scandal Le Parfum" in 5ml. These are the perfect sizes for tucking into your purse or travel bag and taking with you on the go. They're especially great for vacations where you fly on an airplane because you don't have to worry about your expensive fragrance getting lost, broken, or confiscated (but you still get to smell good).
The "So Scandal" the one that was supposed to smell like gummy bears, did NOT smell anything like gummy bears to me. It did smell good though. A nice blend of 3 white florals, but without the harsh traditional white flower scent. It smelled expensive and well-blended. Very pretty. And while I'm happy to have the sample, it wasn't the one I wanted to purchase a full-sized bottle of (thank you My Custom Scent for making it so easy to try).
I love having the option of ordering my favorite scents without a huge price tag. Plus, it allows me to sample new scents too.ReplyDelete
I love that you can get a small amount rather than having to buy the full size and decide you don’t like it.ReplyDelete
Man, I was hoping it WOULD smell like gummy bears! I'd probably buy a full size bottle of that if it did.ReplyDelete
