I will have to tell you because our cats, Opal and Otto, don't know how (can't be bothered ) to type...yet. For the record, I don't really like most perfumes, parfums, eau de parfums, eau de toilettes or eau de colognes myself because I don't find them pleasant. I smell overpriced pumps of chemicals in delicate, architecturally designed bottles that cost more than a week's worth of groceries. The only exception, in my opinion, is Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. fragrance. It was (I say was, because her company no longer makes the fragrance) a subtle, flowery scent that didn't offend my olfactory organs.
Anyway, I received free sample bottles of Elizabeth and James (a company started by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I didn't know this either.) Nirvana Rose Eau de Parfum and Nirvana Bourbon Eau de Parfum from Sephora yesterday. I spritzed a bit of the Nirvana Rose on my wrist. Naw thanks. Too chemical-like for me, and I quickly had to escape the bathroom.
Following me from the bathroom to the living room were Opal and Otto. They sometimes follow me from one room to another, but after the spritzing in the bathroom, there was purpose in their
stalking, something between confusion and fear. I sat down, opened my laptop, and the two of them surrounded me, invading my personal space. Otto sniffed at my wrist, then tried to bite me. Opal began frantically sniffing my wrist, and because she has a chronic nasal issue, I thought she might actually pass out from all the sniffing. What the hell?
Sephora describes the fragrance as, "A seductive floral blend embodying the heart of a dark rose with notes of rose de mai, geranium, and vetiver for a sultry, refined scent with intrigue."
My cats say, "If this perfume could conjure the feeling of being allowed to go outside, eat grass until we yack, roll around in the dirt, spar with a mole, then go back inside and suck down catnip smoothies for the rest of the day, we would buy the hell out of that shit. This does not. The rose nodes are more woody than rosy and if we could gnaw our mommy's hand off, we would. Keep trying Olsen twins."
