Yet another exciting day in the fragrant world.
I successfully subterfuged a sample in Nordstroms, which makes me feel like going out of the store, and high fiving random passersby. Thats 2 samples i've relieved them of, this week, so i reckon my technique is improving.
I think they just hand them over in order to get rid of me, rambling on at them, with some highly suspect, transparently untrue tale, of why one spray on a little card, is hardly enough to coerce me
