The Mad Perfume Sprayer
At first I wasn’t sure, but realized after a while that I liked this Perfume Sprayer. It stayed tangy all day, though in a seductive way. Mum said it was ‘intriguing’, and that she got me Calvin Klein once, but I don’t remember. (Scratches head).This was on special offer in Superdrug but I didn’t like it much when I first put it on, so I didn’t buy it. As time went on, though, I realized I liked it quite a lot… it made me think of a dark, damp, magical forest with deep, jewel-green moss. At night, when there was just a trace of it left, it went somewhat ‘soapy’ on me. If I owned a bottle of it I could always put more on and override that. I can imagine curling up with it in a warm nest, the way I did with Euphoria; I felt the same way about Calvin Klein ‘One’. I wasn’t sure about Secret Obsession at start and at end, so it fell a spot in my perfume list. But I looked in Superdrug again the next day, and it was sold out. (The other perfume on special offer, Elizabeth Arden ‘Red Door’, had hardly been touched. I didn’t try it; I sniffed the bottle and hadn’t liked it for whatever reason). The last thing I noticed about Secret Obsession is that it’s so long-lasting that when I washed it off the next morning, it was still there!Nice and flowery. Fresh and feminine. Friendly. Liked it. Mum said she didn’t like it, but I had just made her smell Cacharel’s ‘Eden’, which was on the same hand, and she was still scowling… I only put ‘Beautiful’ this far down the list because it’s pricier than the perfumes just above (Monsoon, Delirium etc), and if I was on the hunt for another perfume to buy, those would come first. Probably.I received the White Satin body spray as a gift from Mum. I’ve had it in my collection since before I started all this ‘perfume testing’ malarkey, but it seems only fair to include it in my reviews. It’s a pleasant flowery perfume, innocent and old-fashioned in nature. It makes you think of a dressing table covered with cylinders of lipstick, canisters of hairspray and a heavy cut glass ‘puff powder’ thing. And yourself, wondering if Granny will catch you roaming her bedroom (which is off limits to little children). I don’t put any of this in a dismissive way; it’s a pleasant body spray; the aroma is slightly powdery but with a sweet floral note coming through.
Sharp and lemony… it was quite refreshing. Mum liked it but I wouldn’t bother with it, unless it grew on me later. Could well do… in which case I’ll plump out this review!
Another vanilla-y perfume… it was OK, but I’m not all that into the vanilla scents. Mum didn’t like it, and though I thought it was all right, I wouldn’t buy it for myself.
Whoo, expensive. £57 for the bottle I was looking at. I wouldn’t even dream of paying that, but it’s one of those key perfumes everyone’s heard of… my grandmother wore it. When I tried it, it reminded me of Ma Griffe. Mum said it was OK but she didn’t recognize it as Miss Dior. She says there’s something missing and it’s not the same. I read reviews on it earlier; it has been reformulated, possibly to remove or replace ingredients that couldn’t be used any more, but I don’t know the story. I didn’t dislike it, would be prepared to take it at face value, and was grateful that it didn’t give me a headache the way some perfumes do. It was the best of the three Christian Dior perfumes I’ve tried so far, but alien to me. For the rest of the night I kept thinking there was someone else in the room wearing this perfume, and that it had nothing to do with me…Had this on the other wrist, and it was completely overshadowed by the Miss Dior, but that wasn’t its own fault. I quite liked it and was glad it didn’t give me a headache either, but I can’t imagine myself owning a pink perfume with a footballer’s name on it. Football and I don’t go. Setting that aside, it was a quiet, pretty, feminine fragrance without being too wild or cloying. Mum gave it the thumbs down before even learning what it was, but I’ll give it a thumbs up.
A bit sharp and edgy for me, but it was OK at first. As the day wore on, it smelled more and more acridly of tea, and that didn’t really please me! I felt I might as well put real tea on as get the perfume.
A bit on the sugary sweet side for me. Looking forward to trying the other Bodyshop offerings, though. I was in there looking for rose-scented hand cream, but couldn’t see any.Reminded me strongly of another perfume… it bothered me all day, as it was a Perfume Sprayer I knew well, and its name kept bubbling up then wafting off again. I nearly choked when I finally.

The Perfume Bottles
I own and run a small Shop and Print Studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn where I sell my hand printed Stationery and Textiles alongside hand made goods by dear friends and Artisans from around the globe. I usually take natural elements and the creatures that I meet on my travels for inspiration, but today's project was inspired by a colorful collection of Vintage Perfume bottles. I hope you enjoy this mix and match Valentine card project as much as I enjoyed designing it for you!These Valentines are inspired by Vintage Perfume Bottles. There are three different bottles, greetings and patterned designs to cut and collage with for a fun, mix and match project. Happy Valentines Day!Print your favorite pattern above as the backdrop for your air bubble (next slide).Step 1: Choose some good quality 8.5 x 11 (A4) cover stock. I used Pure White Cover Stock from Paper Source (sold in 10 packs) because it's not too thick to feed through the printer but still stands up nicely once made into a folded card. You could also choose a lightly colored or patterned similar weight cover stock in the same size and experiment with printing the perfume bottles on different backgrounds - though it may change the color of the bottles.Step 2: Download and print the 5 page PDF.Step 3: Use either a paper cutter or a ruler and a craft knife to cut the cards to the correct dimensions using the printed crop marks as a guide. Your card will ideally measure 8.5" wide and 5.5" tall once cut.Step 4: Take a bone folder to score a central line up the middle of each card and then fold them in half. Now it will measure 4.25" x 5.5"Step 5: Select a 'spray bubble' silhouette and cut inside the black outline. Then trace around this template onto one of the patterns. I drew on the reverse so that my pencil marks did not show on the front. Experiment with mixing and matching the patterns, air bubbles and bottles. You could also try using a compass or a circle punch instead of the templates. Once you've chosen which way to go, stick the bubbles down on to the card with PVA or another clear drying adhesive, using a glue brush for even coverage.

Poly Incense Burner
When I look at Poly Incense Burner I tend to think of just your standard $2 long piece of wood with a hole in one side. When it comes to cone incense I’ve always been partial to the small, round soapstone holders because it keeps things neat and tidy. But this very unique new incense burner called the Apparition Incense Burner adds a little something else to the burner that makes the whole process of burning your incense a little more interesting.Incense is used for social or cultural purposes. A big fad in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s, incense was tied to Eastern mysticism and burning it became the ‘in’ thing to do. As well, incense masked odors or was thought to enhance recreational drug use. During the hippie heyday, most incense probably came from India. (Writing about this just made me think of Timothy Leary, who I saw in a much more watered down version in the mid-1980s.) Sold on a large-scale, like at Pier 1, or in shops that specialize in such goods, incense can be found with accoutrements for myriad spiritual practices.As the Buddhists say, moderation in all things… Temperate use and good ventilation are important when burning incense. If you plan on making anPoly incense burner out of clay, make sure your vessel can easily disperse the smoke, which carries the scent. Holders either have openings or are flat and the shape determines the form you use, sticks or cones. You can pretty much turn any piece of greenware, vessel or sculpture, into a simple incense burner by just tunneling a little hole in it, wide and deep enough to hold the wooden wand on a stick of incense. Burning does create ash, so want to make sure it’s safe and will catch the residue. There are some nice incense burners offered on Etsy and I especially like this flat one called “Don’t Be So Blue,” by Heritage Valley Pottery. There are any number of ways to use incense…to aid meditation, to spruce up a mid-winter home. Gone are the days when patchouli reigned supreme, but I still enjoy sandalwood.

Can you put perfume in a plastic spray bottle
I really love my Dolce and Gabbana perfume, but the top of the glass bottle broke. It won’t spray. My dad took the top off so we can pour it out, and the only empty spray bottle we have at home is a plastic one, like you can get at Ulta, that hair salons might use to spray water.Can you put perfume in a Plastic Perfume BottleWould the perfume have a bad reaction in plasticWhether we are traveling for pleasure or for business, we want our trips to be comfortable, easy and trouble-free. Here are some tips that you might useful if you are traveling on board:1- When you do packing, don’t fold your clothes in the bag, but roll them up like a Swiss roll. This will create more space in your bag and will reduce clothes wrinkling.2- Pick up wrinkle-free clothes when you travel. This will save you the trouble to press your clothes, or the money that you will be paying for hotel expensive laundry.3- Take a few empty plastic bags with you. You can always use them to separate your dirty laundry such as underwears and socks from your clean clothes, or keep your wet swimming suit if you have no time to dry it up before packing it.
