Today was one of those days. My first day back at work after the Christmas break - fun! On the way home I popped my head into Boots looking for something else. As is often the case for this time of year, I found myself at the sale section. Merely to see what had been left once the vultures (myself included) had picked over the highly prized sale carrion and my eyes fell to this. YSL Belle D'Opium. Debenhams describes the scent as:
The new addiction by Yves Saint Laurent. A woman full of ambivalence, elusive and obsessive, powerful and troubling, ingenue but dangerous. Her perfume, a disconcertingly bewitching new oriental.
Sounds like me and my mood today!
An overdose of rare and precious ingredients: the narcotic scent of Casablanca Lily blends with spicy swirling Incense and mysterious overtones of a Nargileh accord. Her bottle, tinted with electric blue, is crossed by a flamboyant red wick, defining the line that unites it with her skin.
I've smelt this a few times and decided it had to be bought, so in the basket it went.
I then happened upon the Chanel counter. I have to admit, I'm quite taken with Chanel at the moment. I picked up a Rouge Coco Shine in Boy and was able to foot the bill with my Boots Advantage Card points. Yipppeeee! I've wanted this for ages. Boy is the perfect choice for me. Pretty, neutral everyday MLBB shade. Plus, it kind of reminds me of The Boy (awww smushy). I've a feeling this will be getting a lot of love from me.
Right, time for me to be reunited with my beloved PJ's. This working for a living really gets in the way of PJ time!
