I have been bit by the perfume bug...I have spent probably an hour looking through perfumes at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. Only online, alas. It would be easier to decide I don't like any of them if I could just sniff them once, but as it is, I like ALL of them. I am very seriously considering sending off an order for half a dozen samples, except that would require decision-making.

This all came about because an online friend was enthusing about their Last Unicorn line of perfumes, though as far as I know she hasn't gotten any of them yet. But the fact someone I know wants them makes them that much more eminently wantable. Alas, it costs twice as much to get the Last Unicorn samples, and that puts me up into the think-long-and-hard-about-the-finances bracket.

Ix ever so helpfully said he really likes perfume (nice perfume of the more floral/less earthy varieties), which would probably have been more helpful last year when the closest thing we had to seeing each other was Skype and whatever could be put through the mail. A touch of perfume makes for a little more visceral experience with letters, but it helps if the sender actually has a perfume that the recipient recognizes. But at any rate, additional motivation to find a nice scent or two.

Now, I've heard of tupperware parties, but does anyone ever do perfume parties? Ouf, that doesn't sound very appealing, put that way, but I'm not convinced the concept isn't sound: pool money for a dozen samples or so and everyone can find out which ones they like, or if none of them are good, you can vent your disappointment then and there.
