Scents and Cents-a-bility!



Coco Chanel once said

 "A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future."



 Wouldn't you have loved knowing this amazing woman?





What is it about perfume?
Every magazine is filled with ads and samples enticing you to buy yet another expensive bottle of the best smelling magical potion!

Oh sooo tempting and Oh soo expensive!
We "girlie girls" need a way to satisfy our perfume addictions on a budget.

Alas....perfume is NOT something you can get at Goodwill....EWWWWW!

SO


I use these great knock-off "impressions" of my favorite fragrances....
I get them at Walgreens....they are only $11.99...and they really smell like the "real deal"....
No....
The REAL Deal is that right now you can get TWO for $11.99!






This CKOne knockoff is great....


The fresh lightness of the scent is great on hot summer days!




 I have always loved Estee Lauder scents....
This is a little sweet...but I like it!
 The "impression" version of White Linen is pretty wonderful too!

My favorite Estee Lauder perfume is "Private Collection".

Maybe someday I will find a knock-off version....hmmm

In the meantime...that is the perfume I buy when Estee Lauder has their makeup gift deals.






I have never used Clinique Happy....but maybe I should get some....


If the perfume advertisers are right...it is sure to make me happy...tee hee!





This knock off  is so spot on, that when I wear it, some one always says....
"Oh, I LOVE Light Blue"

It is another light and fresh scent perfect for summer...

and at this price, I don't have to be stingy when I spray!!!!









I have to admit that there are a couple of favorite perfumes that I actually pay "almost" full price for....but I CAN because I use the knock offs for variety!!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE....L'instant De Guerlain....
and Origins "Ginger Essence" is spicy and light!  


And after doing an exhaustive search to find a single note carnation perfume....SUCCESS!

There is a little shop in New Orleans...Hove Parfumeur LTD where they sell it...only $37.00.
You can order by phone...darn....I wanted an excuse to go there.

The kids at school absolutely love the way this spicy carnation perfume smells.!!!

I always like the comments...way better than "eww what's that smell!!?"

So I would love to hear what YOUR favorite perfume is....
Do YOU have a "cents-able" way to satisfy YOUR Scents-abilities?
