You might remember from a few blog entries back that I had ordered several free samples of perfumes. I was hoping that it would come in pretty, tiny bottles. I WAS WRONG. Four out of 5 samples haven’t turned up, and the ones that did are from Burberry and they’re SHIT. It’s basically smelling strips, a piece of paper with foil on it that you pull off to release the scent. I tried rubbing it on my wrist and my wrist turned black (great, since I had to go to work just afterwards and can’t wear long sleeves at work). I think a lot of the appeal of perfume is the design of the bottle and not just the smell, so these strips really aren’t doing it for me.
Disappointing free stuff
