Missoni and Missoni Acqua

I think that the concept of a variation on a fragrance is a great one. The result is two scents that are similar but not the same – sister scents, as I like to think of them. Missoni is one of these. The original perfume was launched last year and though I didn’t hate it, […]

Find a Fragrance

When you’re in the market for a new perfume, the selection out there can be very overwhelming. There’s all the new offerings on the market, and then there are the other scents already in the air.

Emporio Armani White for Her

Goodness gracious, this perfume is certainly testament to the fact that a good scent can cheer you up and totally make your day. When I smelled this goody, I was floored. It’s fresh, it’s new, and best of all it’s going to be available! Up until recently, Emporio Armani White for her wasn’t available on […]

Clean Fragrances – Shower Fresh

To be quite honest, when the whole line of CLEAN fragrances came out on the market I didn’t really get it. It makes you smell like laundry? You just smell like soap? Isn’t it easier (and cheaper) to rub yourself with Bounce, or better yet, take a shower? Then last week I decided that maybe […]

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today’s my birthday! What did I get for my birthday, you ask? For the past few years, every year around my birthday I get a new perfume. I don’t know how it started or why, but I like the concept of every year having a particular scent associated with it. It all started when I […]

Lancome Miracle Forever

Lancome’s Miracle Forever was only added to the Lancome line of perfumes this year. Though I’ve heard that the perfume was meant to appeal to a younger audience, I found no sweetness or ephemeral citrus notes that are usually found in those scents. Miracle Forever has a peppery note that’s a bit of a bite […]
