The Lipstick League – Week of 8.8.11

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 14 - 2011

Question of the Week: – What perfume can bring back memories with just one sniff?

Answer: I bought Mr. L the original Chanel Egoiste when we first met many years ago and although the bottle has long been emptied, I’ve kept it for sly sniffs until I can get my hands on a replacement.  It evokes memories of holidays we took, meals we shared and films we saw when we were newly together.  Such a shame it’s scarcer than hen’s teeth nowadays.  Stupid Platinum version I DON’T WANT YOU!

    I bought Gucci “Flora” to wear for the first time on a Mexican vacation with my hubby. Every time I spritz it on now, I’m back in our room getting ready for a night out….
    And whenever I spray my daughter’s Love’s Baby Soft, I feel 10 again, too :)
