LW2: I am mostly a lurker on the 'Pin but I logged in just to tell you, I am a lady after your own heart! And I found my really affordable perfume at OLO Fragrance (http://olofragrance.com/). All of her scents are feminine without being girly, and Lightning Paw is so wonderful. It's described as "bergamot, jasmine, vanilla, patchouli" and whenever I get into the car, my little brother says, "Who here smells like a hippie?" and I don't even care. Also, whenever I smell department store perfumes now they kind of make me gag because they smell so sickly sweet and chemical-ly.
You can buy her perfumes online at the website or at other shops. Good luck! I'm now waiting for her to sell solid perfume so i can take it with me on trips.
OH MY GOD.
why don't I live in Minneapolis???
or have a giant submarine duck with satan's eyes and a handle???
THIS IS THE BEST POSTER EVER.
