We all know Youtube is a treasure trove of ..well… everything. Fact, opinion, how to replace a lamp in a projection TV, how to make a paper mache pig; it’s all there. Recently, in a very dastardly attempt to piss of a co-worker who has an aversion to loud fragrance, I’ve been trolling the perfume vids to get a really great bold scent. I mean why not kill two birds with one stone? I should totally smell fabulous while incensing the olfactory system of my arch nemesis. And of course, since you all are so near and dear to me, I’m going to bring you along for the ride and let you know what’s up with the world of smell.
Since Juliette’s anti-perfume didnt exactly make the cut, I’ve moved on to something a bit less pricey and a lot more normal in construction. It’s an adorable little fragrance called Charmed.
You know… I don’t know. There is absolutely nothing “wrong” with this scent. Per the good folks at Payless, (yes this goodie is distributed through your favorite shoe store) it’s a flirty “new love” fragrance that includes citrus notes of mandarin and freesia with a touch of exotic amber topped off with cotton candy. That sounds about right. It’s also sweet as Drake and blessed with the stamina of Mandingo. I put this on three days ago and after three showers I swear I still smell it. And its only an eau de toilette. If Charmed was full on perfume, it would probably burn through your skin like battery acid.
Cheerful is the word that comes to mind when I’m wearing this. I mean cheerful on steroids. It screams, “Hey everybody! I’m one happy ass bitch!” in 3 part harmony. Again, not necessarily a bad thing, but it may irritate you if you are in a bad mood. Gawking in the mirror, yelling at yourself to turn the merry down, isn’t a good look, but this might drive you to it. I believe this is better suited for 13-year-olds who are partial to unicorns and glitter. It’s pink and the bottle has a big pink bow on it too. Ugh.
So while I truly believe this perfume would work perfectly for my secret piss-off-my-co-worker plan (obnoxiously happy anything is worth at least a frown at 5am). I think I would lose my wits first. She can simply walk away, but I’d be chained to this joyous shit all day .. or three. On to the next one.
