Perfume Warehouse Sale

I’m a big fan of good warehouse sales. By ‘good’, I mean the organizers are reliable, the items on sale are of good condition and original and the price is low enough to be deemed as ‘warehouse sale’.

Perfume warehouse sale don’t come regularly. Even if they were any, I would either be (i) broke or (ii) occupied with other commitments and had to pass it. The last one that I went to was about 2 years ago in Dataran Hamodal, Petaling Jaya where I got various eau de toilette and perfume sets for low prices such as Lanvin Oxygene 100ml (RM49), Celine Pour Homme 50ml EDT & body wash set (RM30), Calvin Klein Truth 50ml (RM80), Carolina Herrera 212 Sexy 100ml EDT & body wash set (RM59) and Kenneth Cole RSVP 100ml (RM69).

This time around, they had it in Corus Hotel, Jalan Ampang from 8 to 11 July 2009 and I managed to go on the second day with initial aim of grabbing a few boxes to be given as future presents to my friends birthday (now you know what you’ll get, guys).

However, the bargain was so irresistible that I had to abort the initial mission!

They had some big names like S.T. Dupont, Armand Basi, Gap, Guess, Paris Hilton, Givenchy, Miss Sixty, Versace, Paul & Joe and others, to name a few. Price starts around RM30 up to RM90, on average.

After much consideration, I chose not to buy anything, bearing in mind that I still have a stash of perfume which could last for the next 5 years. My hommie, Ayi did however and he chose two that best pleased his olfactory, namely Spirit by Antonio Banderas (RM39 for 100ml) and Intimately Beckham by dvb For Men (RM69 for 75ml). I was thinking of getting Versace’s Blue Jeans (only RM39 for 50ml) but I managed to pull myself together and exit the sale hall unscathed.

I look forward for more warehouse sales like this one. Perfume warehouse sale rocks!
