Bonkers Is Having A Perfume Bottle Yard Sale!
But I digress. So...because of the space constraints in my fridges, meaning that it is damnn near impossible to find anything without half a dozen bottles topping headlong on to the carpet as soon as you tentatively start to rummage inside, I have decided to hold a January sale of some of the perfumes I don't reach for very often - and wouldn't even do so if they were easier TO reach for in the ram-packed jumble that is their current home. And if anyone is in any doubt as to why I need to edit my perfume collection, here is a snap of one of my fridges - I only dare picture one! - in its parlous state of groaning profusion.
I do have some more bottles I haven't listed, either because they are so obscure that I doubt anyone would be interested, or conversely because they are too drugstore-y and cheap (the Lidl ones, for instance, great dupes of designer scents though they may be!). Included in this category are also a few fragrances that were sadly unwanted gifts, and though I don't think the friends in question are likely to be reading, to spare their feelings I would rather not list them here.
If any of the perfumes listed appeal - or if you are curious about the other ones - drop me a line on
and I can give you guideline prices, which I am confident you will find reasonable. I can ship anywhere in the world with postage added at cost, but it is worth just mentioning that depending on your location, the cheaper / heavier bottles may cost a disproportionate amount in shipping relative to their value - I expect you can get a good idea of this just by looking at them. Am thinking of J-Lo Deseo in particular, which would make a handy paper weight - or cosh - come to think of it. I have boxes for quite a lot of the perfumes, which I would send with them, possibly flatpacked to avoid undue squashing.
PERFUME BOTTLES FOR SALE (UPDATED LIST!)
Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile EDT 50ml (two thirds full)
Creed Love in Black 75ml (it's anybody's guess how much is left! Seriously though, I think I have only decanted half of it at most, and the price would reflect this uncertainty.)
B by Boucheron 50ml (almost full)
Jo Malone Lotus Blossom & Water Lily 100ml (two thirds full)
Penhaligon's Lily & Spice 50ml (80% full)
Estée Lauder Intuition 30ml (two thirds full)
Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely 50ml (80% full)
Kenzo L'Eau par Kenzo Indigo pour Femme 50ml (a bit over half full)
Donna Karan Cashmere Mist 30ml (70% full)
Let me know if any of these grab you. To be honest, I could happily lose a ton of decants too, but the administrative effort versus potential space-saving returns may not quite stack up with those!
