I should know better

Ugh. I stink.

I got a free sample of the Nicki Minaj perfume The Pinkprint today whether I wanted it or not (thanks Superdrug, for nothing) and foolishly I thought would try it out as it didn't smell that bad on the card, but it's developed into something cloying and horrible on my skin and now I can't get rid of it no matter how many times I scrub.

Make the pink, sweet vileness go away!

I do this all the time! I never learn. Supposedly vinegar works. You know, if you would prefer to smell like dressing.

Vinegar would be worse! Plus I don't have any.

Ugh. I stink. I didn't realize you meant you actually smell until I read the post. Hee!

Nicki Minaj perfume....really? And you didn't think it would be stinky?

I wouldn't admit that. :D

Nicki Minaj doesn't generally interfere with my life beyond Tumblr posts, but it was okay on the card, a bit sweet but nice enough. it was just later that it got awful.

Washing your hands with toothpaste seems to be recommended for a variety of things. Or try dish soap? Or maybe something stinky of a different variety, like nail polish remover. IDK, just throwing things out there, lol.

Obviously I didn't try hard enough. Thankfully, it seems to have gone now..

WikiHow recommends white vinegar, or rubbing alcohol. Rub, then allow to dry. Maybe? Good luck...

I am the weirdo without any kind of vinegar. I have surgical spirit, which I think is the same as rubbing alcohol (we don't have that here).

They're basically the same thing according to Wikipedia. I've never heard of "surgical spirit" before; it sounds like a ghost doctor! :D

Out of curiosity, what worked in the end?

It's a bit old fashioned. I had to order it from the chemist, which is really bizarre given all the uses people seem to find for it. But then I did manage to get through 42 years of life without it.

It's a boring tale, I just woke up the next day and it was gone after my shower. :)

I guess time does erase everything in the end. (Insert image of a brooding Angel...brooding.)

There are quite a few scents which smell gorgeous on other people and horrific on me!! I suppose it's all to do with skin chemistry but it is hard to get rid of a scent if you don't like it.

By the way - I curse you as I have been sucked into Covet!! It's addictive......

I am currently delighting in getting my revenge on Nina Dobrev with horrible outfits!

LOL!!! My covet name is Kayemcee


Oh dear. Some of those 'tribute perfumes' seem to end up smelling like air freshener about 20 minutes after application, don't they?

I don't have a lot of experience with them. I only got this because Superdrug put a sample into my hair dye order. I wasn't expecting anything great, but I wasn't expecting it to go nasty. In it's favour, it didn't quickly fade!
