I know, I know, I know….
You hate celeb fragrances!
Totally can relate. I’m not super keen on them myself but on occasion I honestly don’t mind, hello Harajuku Lovers! Now I gotta say Mariah Carey kinda irks me for some reason or another, so NOT a fan, but when I seen the new Mariah Carey Lollipop Bling Perfumes I noticed my ear cocked up and my nose began to twitch. I needed to know more about these and my nose definitely needed a little sniffle. I mean lollipop? That’s so very ME! I love sweet, candy scents!
Recently I decided to rekindle my romance with Miss Dior Cherie (I have a love/hate relationship with it) and took myself off to Macy’s to get a new bottle. As I was browsing I heard a squeal and turned to see my friend Jai madly misting himself madly with a bright bottle. Yup, you guessed it, Lollipop Bling fragrances were being misted around crazily. Needless to say I only casually sniffed the bottles and didn’t get as crazy as Jai did since I didn’t want to dish out $35 each (yo, pokemon crazy collector disease) after shelling out $100 for my bottle of Cherie. I wish I had paid more attention because my initial reaction to the scent wasn’t particularly “OMG I need these” and I can’t really go by Jai’s reaction because he’s Mariah’s fan girl.
Now after browsing online I kinda wanna take a closer look and smell but I do admit one thing annoys me….
I hate that they called the scents Lollipop Bling but couldn’t take a second to vamp the packaging to match the appealing name. The bottles are brightly hued and very pretty however they are each topped with a Butterfly. I know in some ways butterflies are a Mariah kinda thing but dude the collection is entitled Lollipop Bling? I love the promo images with Mariah sporting brightly colored ring pops on her fingers so how cool would it be for the toppers to be lollipops or something?
I over think packaging sorries!
Without further commentary from me here’s the deets for the Mariah Carey Lollipop Bling Parfum Collection.

Ribbon is a mouthwatering floral fruity fragrance inspired by the flavor of the Blue Raspberry Ring Pop combined with a beautiful floral bouquet.

Each fragrance is $35 and available from both Macy’s and www.elizabetharden.com
I will say that my initial impressions of the scent was that they smelled somewhat like drugstore fragrances and really at $35 you’d expect as much considering this isn’t in the realms of higher counter end however I’m hopeful that’s just the way my conscious is kindly telling me I don’t need another new perfume and really they smell INCREDIBLE. I think they might deserve a second look so off to Macy’s I go again shortly….
Anyone smell them yet?
What did you think?
Worth a haul?
Would you be interested in smelling them?
