Last week, my husband and I spent the better half of Wednesday morning trying to kill time at the Sea-Tac airport after missing our flight to Texas (ahem…what we really missed was the baggage-check time limit…by TWO minutes! I love flying). But, if it wasn’t for our mishap I probably wouldn’t have stumbled upon an overly merchandised store that housed vintage-inspired bottles with the sweetest smelling perfumes.
I was just about to walk out of the store when I saw a corner wall stacked with bottles of perfumes and soaps. I am instantly drawn to anything to do with fragrance so I walked right over and started sniffing away. All the scents smelled delicious and were labeled with such names as, Dead Sexy, Cherry Bomb, I Want Candy and Poe’s Tobacco. After smelling almost every single bottle I decided that I needed to spray on Le Petit and then Let Them Eat Cake. My husband looked at me like I was crazy for doing this, but I assured him that it was okay.
Le Petit perfume grabbed my attention because its scent was an infusion of Lily, peony, vanilla bean and violet petals…a mixture of some of my favorite fragrances. It took me a few minutes to decide what it reminded me of and I finally realized that it was almost a dead-on clone to the original Burberry London (a fragrance that made me feel oh-so sophisticated my freshman year of college). I probably would have stopped there, but I saw the name, ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ and had to grab the bottle for a spritz; being a slightly obsessed Marie Antoinette fan. Let Them Eat Cake is everything you might hope it would be, sweet and sugary, with notes of sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla orchid and white musk. Yum!
At $28 a bottle, you can afford to pick a few of your favorites up. I personally think the bottles are too cute for words and would love to have them displayed on my dresser (with the rest of my never-ending perfume collection). My birthday is around the corner…and yes, that was a hint (to whom it may concern).
