Saturday Poll: Do You Get Perfume For Your Birthday?

Apologies for the lack of proper posts in the latter part of this week. I seem to have got myself into a tiz over work-based issues and haven’t had my head in the right place to do any form of writing, but hopefully normal service will resume next week.

On last week’s Saturday Poll we pitched two reinterpretations of classic fragrances (namely Guerlain’s Shalimar Parfum Initial and Chanel N°5 Eau Première) against each other to see who would be the supreme born-again fragrance. N°5 Eau Première knocked the ball out of the park by gaining a total 40% of the vote, which is interesting seeing as the original lost out to Shalimar in our Flagship Fragrance Showdown the week before.

On to this week’s poll…

This Week’s Poll

Today is my birthday, I am a whole quarter of a century old! Which got me thinking, when it’s your birthday do you get perfume?; Or do you not ask for it?; Or do you ask for it and not get it? Do you treat yourself?

I want to know! Register your vote and let me know your thoughts in the comments box below!

My Vote

Every year Nigel (my partner) and I have the same ‘discussion’: I want perfume for my birthday but he doesn’t want to get it for me.

Now, before you all pick up your pitch forks and start heading for Candy Perfume Towers you must know that Nigel is a very supportive fume-wife, he does occasionally get me perfume and he has good reason for not wanting to buy it for me at times, namely the fact that he likes to buy me special, unexpected presents that aren’t always obvious.
