Haulage! Perfume & the Dangers of the FragranceX Waitlist

I’m on the waitlist for many items at FragranceX, my favorite online perfume discounter (no affiliation), but I’ve never actually bought anything they’ve notified me about being back in stock. Until just now.

I currently have a tester bottle (capless and boxless) of Guerlain Mitsouko eau de toilette, and have wanted to pick up a proper bottle of the eau de parfum, too.

Well, it just came back in stock at FragranceX, and there was just one bottle. 75mL was a bit more than I wanted (50 would have done me just fine), but the price was pretty darn good, so I bit. I get a 10% loyalty discount and free duty-free shipping, as well. I mean, it’s only my second-favorite perfume of all time, and it’s perfect for the upcoming fall. Plus, I’m getting tired of smelling baby poo and spit-up!

Guerlain says:

Fruity Chypre.
Mysterious, balanced, velvety.

A masterpiece of balance and originality, Mitsouko marries a fruity note of peach with jasmine flowers and May rose. The mysterious dry-down of the fragrance blends spicy notes with those of underbrush and vetiver.

Mitsouko initiates the use of the peach note in perfumery. Illustrating the innovative side of its creators, Mitsouko is the first fruity chypre fragrance in the perfume world, following other chypre fragrances introduced by Guerlain.

I’ve accumulated too many new perfumes recently. Time to put an end to it (and go back to buying nail polish! Hahahaโ€ฆ) Here’s my recent damage:

  1. Haha, it does look like you go back and forth between buying perfumes and nail polishes! Perfumes are definitely a more expensive habit! Hmm Mitsouko sounds nice. It’s your second favourite perfume… what’s your #1? I feel like I should know this.

    • Guerlain L’Heure Bleue is numero uno, but I feel like I can wear Mitsouko much more easily. LHB is a bit…depressive. Not really an everyday scent. Grossmith has one that is very similar (and less melancholy), and I want it for multiple reasons, but it’s way pricy! I guess if I just don’t buy any perfume for a whole year I could probably justify it to myself :p

      You should definitely hit up the Guerlain counter for perfume, sometime! I also love Eau de Shalimar for summer, so wonderful and it comes in the Jade Jagger bottle now, too.
