Necessity is the mother of invention...

Given my very limited budget and small collection, when I get the urge for a new or very particular scent there are few options.

Today, I wanted something spicy and warm of which there are probably thousands but none of which have entered my personal supply. So, thinking that I love the warmth of Hypnotic Poison (perfume, splash bottle) and the rubber tang of Bvlgari Black I've decided to layer them.

So far so good. There's vanilla in both that seems to be encouraging a blend of scents rather than the wafting stink I feared. The Dior is 'warming' the rubber in the Bvlgari really well. Not nearly as spicy or heavy as I was after, but its not a bad combo.

Off to have a chat with the nice lady at the Fenwick perfume counter who knows near-nothing about perfume but gives out plenty of samples

    Good job on taking matters into your own hands and daring to create!
    It is funny how some SA cannot be bothered to invest in trade knowledge.
    To hear some struggle through pronounciations is like nails on a chalkboard!

    Not only is it like nails on a chalk board but it's so terribly ironic! They look at the grad student with a low budget as though I am some how unworthy of their time - when I am already possessed of more knowledge on their product then they are!

    Meanwhile I must beg with a sweet and innocent smile for samples and decants They usually only have samples for the latest designer marketing push, but there's the occasional gem among them!
