Charlie on my mind, Customer Service Special

My favourite perfume is Fidji by Guy Laroche, sadly it is getting harder to get and more expensive if you can find it. So, I've been on a mission to find an alternate. I'm pretty picky at how I smell and hate girly cloying perfume. I may not be girly girly but I like to smell nice.

You can get it at Duty shops at airports but I am not planning on leaving Australia any time soon. The only person I know going OS is going on a charity ride in SA for Riders for Health [ yes, my fault LOL* ] and I don't think he'd wanna be carting around exy bottles in his bag. Anyway...

Charlie - by Revlon, the original was based on Fidji. Supposedly it is readily available. Ok, well, yes, that would probably be true if the 2 checkout chicks could be assed to do anything more than say Nope, don't have it. They had Charlie Red & Charlie Blue, so I sprayed the Red & wanted to test the Blue, so back to the disinterested chicks again, answer was Nah, don't have a tester for it. So, my answer was, Well, that solved my problem of where to spend $100 +, not here that's for sure. I'm sure with that kind of stellar customer service the Store's future is guaranteed. When I see the 2 of them near a Centrelink Office, I certainly won't be surprised.

The shop I went to was not the shop I linked to above, they are great and answer stupid questions over the phone and are apparently interested in selling their items. Unlike another national company who specialise in female beauty products, like perfume & makeup but obviously not so specialised at customer service.

Charlie Red still smells nice on me after 12+ hours, so I think I might just go for that one.

* I saw an article about Riders for Health and showed my mate. After 2 years of fundraising & planning he leaves in a few weeks for it, he's the only Aussie going this year. I hope he has great fun but gets home safely in time so we can go to testing days at Phillip Island.
Hugs matey!
