Blind Buys

Three days ago I did something I NEVER do. I blind bought some perfume. Well, maybe it's a half truth, let me explain...

It's getting to be that time of year where I'm craving more "beachy" or "tropical" fragrances. I had been intending on picking up a bottle of Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess (and I still might, although the website says it's out of stock - maybe not in the store), but after wearing a my sample of Gorilla Perfume's Ladyboy; I forgot how much I LOVED it on me and decided to order a bottle. O.K. I know, NOT a blind buy...


I also put in an order for their limited edition Yuzu & Cocoa Perfume. Here's where I'm like, "well, it's sort of a blind buy..." Clearly I know what the Yuzu & Cocoa Bubbleroon smells like, but it's not like I've rubbed the thing on my skin to see how the oils would ACT on my skin as a perfume. That's why I'm calling it a blind buy!

What do y'all think? True blind buy? What's your personal blind buy policy? Any big hits or misses? Tell me about them in the comments, please!

  1. You should definitely get Bronze Goddess! Check your local stores: last year I bought mine in May when all sites showed it as sold out.

    I'm trying not to buy anything above 5 ml unsniffed. I can't say it always works ;)

  2. HUGE congratulations to you! see more. Brazilian Blowout
