TokyoMilk Crushed #32 Parfum caught my nose today while out shopping. It's not a scent that I would normally gravitate to but upon smelling it, I decided to spritz a bit on my wrists. The parfum is a mix of earth + moss, crushed herbs, wild grass and jasmine and comes in a beautiful black square bottle with white writing. Housed under the Femme Fatale Collection , this scent is sure to "brings the boys to the yard"...or something like that (smile). When checking out #32, be sure to see if another scent speaks to you. Just the names alone (Arsenic, Tainted Love, Bulletproof) are sure to make you give some of these aromas a second look.Fun Facts about Parfum (or Perfume!)
