Favourite Perfume

I am going to tell you a wee story about my favourite perfume, enjoy!

I first bought this when I was on my way back from a skiing trip in Austria in 4th year and I had some euros left over.  I didn't even like it that much at the time to be honest, I just bought it for the sake of it!  However after having smelled it a few times and now I love it!  It's definitely not everyone's cup of tea, it smells kind of masculine strangely but it's so yummy!

Unsurprisingly it ran out quite quickly and I had no idea where to get it again.  I've never seen it anywhere other than that airport in Austria!  I tried to find it on the internet but to no avail.  So I forgot about it for a few years until one day I got a whiff of it - no idea where it came from, probably just my brain making it up! - and it set me on a mission to find it!  I finally found it for a really quite good price, about £29 for 100ml so I bought it.

Then... oh god, what a nightmare, first they emailed me to say I hadn't paid even though the payment had already come off, once I got that sorted it had been ages and still no sign of it so I went back onto the website and it WASN'T THERE!!!  I genuinely thought I'd been scammed!  However, apparently they are just very shit and after about 7 weeks my perfume finally arrived!  So I wouldn't recommend that website, it's called 'Buy My Makeup' I think.  But I will say that they were very good at emailing me back and seemed really friendly but it all just seemed so dodgy at the time!  One good thing was that  for whatever reason the £29 actually came off as $29 so I got it for nearer £20 :)

The bad news... Jil Sander is owned by Coty who are not cruelty free which I didn't realise at the time so I won't be able to repurchase this - assuming I ever managed to find a decent website to buy it that is! I am cherishing this bottle!!!

Has anyone else come across this perfume?


PS it is exam time at the moment so I won't be blogging as much as I'd like to, this is post I wrote up a few weeks ago but just hadn't posted it yet 'cos it's not the most exciting one in the world!  I am still photographing my nails for NOTD but just not had to time to edit and make them into a post!  It will all be over at 11.30am on 22nd May.......
