....not the kind in a vial, but the ones that are in the pages of magazines and newspapers.

I don't know if what I do is weird, but my husband laughs at me (in a loving, playful way) because I don't just open them and smell them, but I rub them all over myself so I can find out how they smell on ME. At any given time, I'll have a whole stack of them saved up, and I love to tuck them into my suitcase for travelling! No worry about my favorite perfume bottle breaking (of course, I never know what I'm going to smell like, until I try it.)

They are immediately tossed, along with the pages they touched.

Not worth the sneezing or itchy, runny eyes.

I'm curious, do all perfumes cause this reaction, or is it just the paper samples?

I always sniff the sample cards. If I like them, I might rub it on my arm just to get a sense of what it might smell like on me. Otherwise, I just toss them in with the old newspapers...

I usually don't even bother smelling them and leave them right in the page. Not a big perfume person.

I thought that actually using them on yourself was the intended design of them, hah.

That's what I do anyways, if I'm going to buy perfume I need to know what it will smell like on me.

I agree, but my hub thinks it looks funny when I rub the paper all over myself. Admittedly though, I do get a bit silly with it, pretending to act sexy as I dab some down my cleavage, etc., saying "Come here baby, and get a whiff of page 87!" LOL!
