Clarins perfume - think I've got the wrong one.

I usually have the red perfume, but I tried a tester of the orange-yellow bottle recently and quite liked it. DH very kindly bought a bottle in duty free, but it doesn't smell like the tester. The one he bought is yellow, and is called summer. I'm sure the one I tried was more orange and less flowery smelling.

So, my question is, is there a yellow one and an orange one, or is my memory deceiving me.

Also, I really, really don't like the one he bought - would I be able to change it in a shop even though he bought it in duty free?

Yip, there are 2 very similar looking ones..

Click HERE for the range.

I think the summer one might be limited distribution, perhaps DF-only?

I doubt you'd be able to return it either. A) stores do not have to refund things when you don't like it, b) it's been opened already, and c/d) you clearly did not buy it from shop as they don't sell it...

Thanks - it's definitely the orange one I liked. Didn't think I'd be able to change it. I'll maybe try and eBay it...

hello, you like eau de jardin. The one dh got you is discontinued but sold in duty free. Loads of people ask about it though so wack it on eBay!

Great. Thanks I'll do that. I'll need to do it behind DH's back. He was so pleased with himself for getting something that I'd commented about in passing. I usually have to write specific instructions.

If you do get the other (Jardin) one, he'll never know, they do look very similar...

Win win.

Euphemia, the Jardins one really doesn't suit you at all, you know. Your friends are too kind to tell you. You'd be much better with the Summertime one. It's far, far, nicer. I could do you a massive favour and swap... wink
