Perfume buys that were just WRONG?
I don't know if this has been asked;don't find it in a search anyway,but have you ever bought a perfume thinking it smelt good in the store,only to HATE it once you got it home/couldn't get it out of your clothes/etc?And then subsequently never used it?

I had a very bad perfume period at the beginning of last year and the evidence is STIL on my bathroom shelf...I bought,then rejected:

1)Sicily by Dolce and Gabbana (initially fresh but later way too sharp and cloying,got into all my wool clothes and took many washes to erase all traces).

2) Hugo Boss Deep Red ...just too strong a fragrance,no and odour,for me..

3) Gucci Eau de Parfum II In itself a lovely fragrance,but nothing really special.I got bored a third of the way through the 50ml bottle,and the rest is still standing on the bathroom shelf.Will start using it to gym when my Ralph Lauren Blue finishes though

4) Anna Sui Dolly Girl....nothing wrong with the fragrance;fresh and floral/fruity and green...but stopped using it after the summer and haven't gone back.Also half a bottle left,also in line for gym use

5) Bulgari...I forget which one by Bulgari..it's the small,squarish clear bottle..also a LOT sweeter once I'd brought it home,than I thought it was the day I tried it on.

Anyway,these days I contain my need for instant gratification,get a tester tube first,wear it for a couple of days and then decide!!

I LOVE Marc Jacobs,the eponymous one and Marc Jacons Blush right now...but there IS a thread for this already

I don't buy perfume, which is probably just WRONG!! However, my mom wears a brand called "Paris" and I have always thought it smelled like piss, so don't get that one!!

She also wears Halston, which I don't believe they make anymore, but that smells wonderful!!!

It changes every season... for summer; it's Michael Kors's new fragrance, Island.

fresh and summery, yet not fruity;

Ooops. Omit that last message; That was a GOOD fragrance. I meant to write that last message in a different thread.

A "just WRONG" perfume would be more like: Curious, by Britany Spears. And all of J.Lo's fragrances. Or any perfume designed by someone whose main source of income is from the entertainment industry.

Fortunately I've never bought any fragrances that I regret for. I would however, never buy fragrances that were released by random fashion brands just so they could raise their income. There's only FEW designers that actually have the goods to release quality fragrances.

I have that one too...it is lovely but for me,not an every day fragrance.I wear it out at night sometimes,or just whenever the mood gets me.And then I really enjoy it.But I find it too strong to be my regular perfume (that would be the Marc Jacobs Essence )

I have Curious and i actually think it smells really good..
but anyways, I was seeing ads for the Dessert by Jessica Simpson line everywhere so I asked for it for Christmas and its so sweet and ugh its not even perfume. The only thing its good for is carrying in your purse to freshen your breath...

Ralph Lauren - Romance : The whole bottle leaked in my bag! One of the glass corners chipped - don't ask me how! I cannot stand the smell now, It makes me feel physically ill!
