* Bath & Body Works Velvet Tuberose is not as sucky as it could have been. As tuberoses go, it's not a bad one for the novice to encounter, and might lead a body to something like Prada's tuberose, and then eventually to Fracas.
* Speaking of tuberoses, here's a little tip for you perfume sales types: don't try to sell me various versions of a note I've already told you I have a favorite of. If I tell you I own and love pure parfum Fracas, this is not a sign to fling every tuberose-based scent at me. Also, don't try to sell me every flanker variation of a scent if I tell you I own it. Perhaps I am merely trying to demonstrate to you that I like things that aren't necessarily tuberose. Though, thank you, incidentally, for the Prada Infusion de Tubereuse, since I liked it -- but generally DO NOT DO THIS (especially after I tell you I collect and review perfume!)
* I got some solid perfume for Christmas. I liked it so far. I think I'd like it even more a crazy locket (note to self).
* Also, check out this adorable little clutch I got today (see above). Anyone have suggestions on scents I could wear with an outfit that is seriously built around this?
