Reading In The Chair

United States
March 4, 2011 3:57pm CST
So I was getting my hair done last night and I was sitting in the chair and reading a magazine while waiting for the color to dry and I was wondering and thinking you know the ads in the middle of the magazine that have the perfume where you can open it and smell it? I was wondering "Am I the only one that does that?" Do you do it? And if you like the smell of a certain perfume that they have in the ad do you rub it on your arm? And does it make you want to buty a bottle of that certain perfume that you liked there? And if you do how long is before you actually buy the bottle? L.O.L.

I have such a sensitive nose I don't need to open it. I can smell perfume just by picking up the magazine. I can only wear one perfume that I won't smell all day. Soft Musk. Anything else and I sneezing. I have a hard time at work sometimes. People aren't suppose to put perfume on that is strong but it happens sometimes.

Once in a blue moon they might have one that really smells good but I really only like one perfume too Sand and Sable and it is sometimes hard to find. I am really not a big perfume fan but I really like that one that I mentioned it is not so strong and has a light and nice smell.

I've never heard of Sand and Sables. I will have to look and see if we have it here. If it not to strong maybe it could be an alternative to the Soft Musk.

Hi. jahernandezrivas. Yes, I love getting magazines that have the perfume in the middle of the pages. I love smelling and testing out the scents. If the scents smells lovely, I will make plans to buy it someday. I also love the sample ones that they send through the mail. These you peel back the silver film. I love smelling the perfume in the magazines. I have never bought a bottle yet, Lol. Hopefully, someday soon, I will.

I immediately sniff it so I can tell what it is like. I don't rub it on my arm as I wear one specific one for years. But I will sniff and probably consider it as a gift one day. But, lol, you are not the only that has to smell it because I can't resist.

I like to sniff those but I never rubbed it on my wrist... didn't think it would come off that easily. It doesn't really make me want to buy a bottle since, I don't wear perfume.

I smell them too. But rarely have I ever rubbed any on my arm right away. I wear only two scents and have never found either one in a magazine. Just before I opened to this discussion I had put on a sweat shirt that I'd worn once last week and it smells of one of my scents. So, for this afternoon, I'm saved of having to use that pfffftt!

I wouldn't say I'd want to go out and buy it simply because 1 I don't have the money to spend on frivilous things as much as I would like 2. My girls would use it up in a heartbeat and I'd be very upset! 3. I hardly wear any perfume as I don't go anywhere other than to work a few hours a week and if I was fortunate to afford an expensive bottle I will charish it to the last drop. I do get a magazine free in the mail that has those perfume strips and I usually tear them out and either give them to my kids or use them like a sachet in dresser drawers or in the linen closet.
