have no will power

This month I bought Lanvin Eclat d'Arpege for about $15. It's very light and might be nice for summer. We'll see. So far, it's just ok. The top notes are lovely! Citrusy, bright, and a little sweet, but after fifteen minutes or so it turns powdery and soft and stays that way.

I also bought The Body Shop's Indian Gardenia eau de parfum. They're no longer carrying it in Japan (perhaps discontinuing it altogether?) and although I already have the perfume oil, I wanted the EDP also. It's nice! A bit lighter than the perfume oil, but lasts a little longer.

Fifteen bucks? What a deal, yeah I'd cave in and get it, too. For that much, even if you don't like it you can just pass it on to a friend or co-worker who might. Plus, the bottle is rather lovely I think.

The EDP lasts longer than the oil, you say? Weird. That almost never happens.

Ooh, good, I feel a little better then. The bottle is cute.

I liked the Hermes Eau de Merveilles bottle, but it didn't smell very nice on me.

About the EDP, it could just be my imagination :D
