SOTD: Marc Jacob's Blush

My relationship with jasmine has always been on the tenous side, some how I bring out the indoles in even the least indolic of jasmine fragrances, but something strange has happened. A few years ago I tried Marc Jacob's Blush and well I detested it, I mean seriously did not LIKE it, it bloomed on my skin in the most perverse way, others spoke of how easy and lovely it was, and me, well Pooptown, USA would have been a good description. And then the other day through a swap I received a sample of it and because I constant curiousity decided for the hell of it to retry Blush. What hit my nose was not indolic at all but rather something very similar to L'Artisan's Le Chasse aux Papillons but hints of wonderful delightful peach. As I said inwardly to myself "Holy Skin Chemistry Change Batman!"

I couldn't stop thinking about re trying this scent today- isn't that strange? I was thinking about how I don't like the new scent Lola terribly but how it'll probably be more of s success than blush which deserves to be a hit and has beautiful, much more understated packaging.

Lol- it never ceases to amaze me when this happens. Although with me it is usually in the reverse... I start out LOVING a scent and then a week later wonder what on earth I was thinking.

Rose, This is the only Marc Jacobs I like other than the pure parfum for the original.

Daily, I absolutely hate that. Nothing worse than that happening.
