I am hoping you can help me with a small problem. I received a present from my mother, an Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise gift set that includes the fragrance and the body lotion. I accepted it graciously and thanked her, but I didn't tell her that this smells terrible on me. It is just a cloying bouquet of tropical flowers that sits on my skin and never evolves. The set didnt come with a gift receipt, so I probably cannot return it.
What do you in cases where you've received a perfume you dislike? Do you keep it and hope to fall in love with it? Do you tell the person?
