smellin' good. real good.


Do you remember a few months ago when I started my search to find the one. You know, that perfect signature scent. I searched high and low... at Perfumania and Ulta... smelling fragrance after fragrance...

At every perfume store I entered, I always asked if they carried Burberry Summer... the answer was always no. Until finally, last week, I gave in. I decided that if I really wanted to find the perfect scent, I might just have to suck it up and pay full price... something I rarely do. But after deciding that Burberry Summer was the only one for me, I marched myself into Macy's... directly to the 'fine fragrance' counter... found the first white-lab-coat-employee... and told them to ring me up for a bottle of the Burberry Summer. And I must say, I'm very pleased with my full price purchase.

However, during my search for the perfect fragrance, I did stumble upon a few other potential scents. Based on some of your comments from my original post, I tried Ralph Lauren Romance, Burberry Brit, and Pure Grace Philosophy. I even ended up purchasing a small bottle of Philosophy's 'Falling in Love.' I feel really confident about my new I'm-a-grown-up-fragrance-collection. I have a handful of diverse, yet light, favorite scents. Warm Vanilla Sugar will always be my go-to scent, but I love my new Burberry Summer... and now I have a couple of back-up scents, just in case of an emergency.

I've been looking for the last year or so as well. They carry Burberry Summer at the PX on base. I've smelled it several times but did not like it. Isn't it funny how two people can find the same smell to be so different! I don't remember what I didn't like about it.
But I was going to tell you that if you know anyone in the military, they could get it a little cheaper for you at the PX. They carry a lot of perfumes and are generally about $10 cheaper than a normal store.
