Yes, I know we all layer fragrance, but I have a new trick! We cough up the big bucks for the parfum, then we spend even more for the lotion. We’re women, we like to smell good, it’s what we do.
So, this holiday season I decided I needed something new, I’m tired of the samo, I was overdue for a change and I didn’t want to break the bank, so I tried on a lot of different scents, trying to find one that I really liked. I misted myself until I would give myself a killer headache and couldn’t tell the smells apart, then I would give up and try it again another day!
But I tended to respray Jennifer Aniston’s fragrance, it was light, not overpowering, I really liked it. I was at Kohl’s, I had a 30% off coupon, the price wasn’t hideous, it was $49, and I couldn’t decide if I liked her original fragrance or her newer J by Jennifer. A nice little twelve year old clerk was helping me, she preferred Michael Kors, which did not smell good on me at all, she was twelve after all, she didn’t have a lot of life experience with perfume. She was a cutey, but that Michael Kors she gushed about was really bad. Anyway, she’s telling me that for $38 I could buy a gift set of full size bottles of both of the fragrances by Jennifer Aniston. It was a deal, $38, instead of $100, minus 30% and I had Kohl’s cash, too. I looked for the lotion to do the layering thing, but apparently they don’t make the lotion.
So I came home, went online, reviews were good for both scents except for the fact that the smell dissipated quickly, and since there wasn’t a lotion I was starting to rethink my good deal. Then I stumbled upon a reviewer who said to just buy Vaseline Intensive Care Unscented Body Lotion, smear it on yourself, spray the perfume on top of the lotion and rub it in, and wahlaa, you have scented lotion and instant layering.
So I went further and sure enough, I read over and over again that this was a great trick, so I bought the Intensive Care Unscented Lotion for like $3.99, came home tore into the package, lubed up and put on the perfume. And guess what, it works, it really works!
So there you go, I’m sharing the good stuff again, you can do this with any fragrance, it’s a really good thing ~ Jan
