Henri Bendel - Room Perfume

You probably already know I'm a big fan of Bath and Body Works' Henri Bendel candles. Did y'all know they made room perfume in the same fragrances?

I don't think anyone knew, or if they knew, they didn't care. Because Bath and Body Works is discontinuing them, and you can buy them for $9 (down from $18) at the Big Ol' Semi-Annual Sale. They're good ones, too; I grabbed one bottle each in Orange Flower and Tuberose.

I'm sure I read somewhere that you can use room spray as personal fragrance; the only difference is in the alcohol content, and it's a small difference. I think. Well, I tried it out yesterday, and it works fine. Orange Flower will last quite a while on skin, and doesn't turn all weird-smelling like that stuff from the Gap, of which I am not a fan.

So, go ahead and use these on yourself. You have my permission. Just proceed with caution, because I will not be held responsible if you get allergic and die.

And just because you can use room perfume doesn't give you license to douse yourself in Glade. That's just tacky.

i hate the word "tuberose." i get as far as tuber- and start thinking yam, and it's just killed for me from there. or maybe there's a market for potato candles?
just saying.

There is definitely a market for potato candles.

I'm ashamed to admit that I almost bought that...but I stopped myself and got the mint chocolate chip ice cream and warm apple pie candles instead.

Is it any good? I totally want one, but there are no White Barns around here.
