I Have To Share This With You...

First let me tell you that I wear one kind of perfume morning, noon and night. It's been my favorite for as long as I can remember. High School??? Don't get me wrong-- I love trying new foods, buying new clothes, shopping at new places, and I've even left my home town to go on an adventure with my hubby. Hey, I've definitely stepped out of my comfort zone by having a batch of little ones.
But... I only wear one kind of perfume. Thierry Mugler's Angel perfume. I just like it that way. I don't think I've ever smelled anything I love more. Until one day while I was on my regular Target run and I "accidentally" walked by the perfume section. Or so I thought. Something pink and fluffy stuck out to me.

Pink perfume.
Cotton Candy.
I opened the bottle. Did a little squirt, squirt. And I could not stop smelling my wrist the rest of the day. It took me back to a time of summer evenings. Swimming pools. Bicycle rides. Bubble gum smells. And pure childhood fun. I didn't have to think too hard on this one. I spent a big $8.00 and now, whenever I want, I squirt a little squirt for some daytime sweetness. I might smell like a little girl eating at the county fair, but is that so bad SOMETIMES?

What would we do without Target? Thanks for stopping by to see my Turkey Day farm table and decor! I'm thinking about placing poinsettias in place of the pumpkins in the middle of our ornamental cabbage!

I can't wear perfume but I might have to go try this one, it can't hurt if it smells like cotton candy!

That is so neat! I love how certain scents invoke memories. For me, Love's Baby Soft = high school. Downy and Caress body soap = my Grandma.

For the last year I've been using Lovely by SJP and I really do love it.

Cottage Rose said...

Sounds like a nice sent. I might have to go and check it out. I love scent's that take you back to our youth.

Have a great weekend.

How fun is that? I'm afraid I'd try to eat my own arm though.

Kriss said...

I bought this too a few weeks ago for my daughter. I have a feeling I might be stealing a few squirt squirts. LOL! I love your blog. You have such pretty things. The one thing that drew me in was the frame at the top of your blog. It's beauitful!
