Are you a scent junkie?

I love trying new things. One of my favorite things to try are perfumes, colognes and body sprays. You know, those inexpensive sprays you pick up on clearance after holiday sales. Yes, that's me.

I perused Wal-Mart's after Christmas sale aisles like a ninja looking for deals and ridiculously marked down goods. Some things I found - stickers, lip balms, photo boxes and baking supplies plus lots of smelly fun! You know those little stocking stuffer perfumes that guys pick up on Christmas Eve to fill the stocking? Yes, those!

The highlights? Exclamation by Coty. I remember when this came out back in the '80's but I didn't wear it then. I was more of a Love's Baby Soft kind of gal but that doesn't scent doesn't do much for me today and that memory has to stay there!

I digress. Exclamation is a nice everyday scent - not too heavy and stays with me thru the day. I also found a small bottle of Chantilly. This one is a bit stronger but still nice.  Sort of reminded me of something my Grandma would wear.

My vanity holds a crazy amount of sprays from the semi-annual Bath & Body Works sale. 75% off is very seductive. Lotions, sprays, shower gels, oh my! No particular favorite there - I love them all! And I picked up more than I should have. I've also purchased Bath & Body Work sprays from estate sales (hello Velvet Tuberose!) and thrift stores (Vanilla Bean Noel - a 2 pack for $2.99...why, yes, I will take that. Thank you!).

While I would love to be able to wear my Estee Lauder Beautiful on a daily basis, my budget just doesn't allow for that luxury. Beautiful is saved for the special outings - a date with my husband, church, dinner with friends and so on.

In the meantime, I'm happy to indulge my scent obsession with all those little spray bottles bought on the cheap!

 Do you have a favorite scent? How do you indulge in little luxuries without spending a fortune?
