This February we finally got some rain. But even though it was not of a kind when you say “better than nothing”, it was a good rain, it still hasn’t resolved our drought situation. But it gave us hope and I enjoyed that month even more than I would have without these long expected precipitations.
On the heels of the first guest post by hajusuuri I asked you to answer the question for this statistics post:
I am pleased to see that six out of forty (40) respondents (15%) are financially conservative and don’t make spontaneous purchases. Admirable!
The potential of the perfume slipping away before we can decide if we really-really want to get it proved to be the most direct way to our wallets: 10 votes/25%. Let’s promise ourselves and each other that we won’t allow any unscrupulous SA to exploit this weakness.
The second most common slippery slope toward making an unplanned perfume purchase is a “good deal” temptation. I snort every time I hear the slogan “The more you spend, the more you save” but in reality the notion of getting the best offer ever – now or never! – works for many of us. By the way, my answer was one of the 9 (23%) in this category so I wasn’t among the wisest perfumistas from the category I mentioned first.
All other options got the even spread – 5 votes (12-13%). Reasons mentioned in the “Other” category were either indecisive ones (all-of-the-above type) or along the line of instant gratification.
In conclusion I want to say that regardless of the reason why we commit to a new bottle purchase, if we do not break the bank, the only thing that matters is whether we feel satisfied or disappointed with our acquisitions en masse. If the former – keep enjoying that aspect of your hobby (and if the latter – come to us and we’ll organize an intervention!)
And finally – the results of the inaugural draw for 5 ml decant of Atelier Cologne Silver Iris:
#1 – Vanessa! To tell the truth, I don’t remember for a long time #1 to be selected as a winner (not just on my blog). Please contact me with the mailing instructions.
