Bath and Body Works Holiday Signature Collection 2010

Bath and Body Works Holiday Signature Collection 2010 1

It’s probably too early to be thinking about fragrances for the Holidays. I’m still on board with the scent of spicy pumpkin and fresh apples but…in the makeup and fragrance world the Holidays are pretty much here full on. BPAL already introduced their Yules, you should check ‘em, they are doing the Nutcracker this year!

And most important, Christmas, wouldn’t be Christmas without a little help from the Bath and Body Works Signature Collection. Would you believe me if I told you Twisted Peppermint started out life as a shower gel not as a body mist? How did we live without it?!

Marc Jacobs Lola Velvet Limited Edition Eau de Parfum Spray Review, Photos

My first introduction to Lola was when I was a mere babe and my parents had this monster cabinet. Inside the cabinet was an 8-Track Tape Player, yeah, my parents are obviously old and stuff, and a record player. On an old 45 (those are what smaller records were called way back in the time of dinosaurs) was Lola. She was a Show Girl.

No, but seriously, my first introduction to anything Lola was a Show Girl that Barry Manilow sung his little lungs out about. These things stick with you well into adulthood when you’re exposed to them as such a young age so now anytime I hear Lola I simply think of that tune and my foot starts tapping and I have a sudden urge to burst into song.

Now Marc Jacobs Lola has that Show Girl vibe with a big giant flower decking its bottle topper and I can’t help but thing of super fabulous Show Girls (not the washed up variety, promise!).

Gorilla Perfume Lush Lust Solid Perfume Review

Gorilla Perfume Lush Lust Solid Perfume 1

Lush’s most popular shampoo bar? I’d have to say Godiva. Everyone adores it, including my sister who stock piles it all crazy-like. I like Godiva but it isn’t a favorite of mine.

However, fans of the shampoo bar will be overjoyed that one of the newly launched Gorilla Perfume Fragrances is actually Godiva but renamed.

Let’s have a look!

Unforgettable Moments Promise Eau de Toilette Review

Are you a fragrance snob? I’m not sure I deem myself one. I like higher end fragrances for sure and have a tad bit of an unhealthy obsession for Annick Goutal but I’m not sure I would call myself snobbish if I came across a cheaper scent that I really liked. For example, I absolutely adore e-tailers like Beautiful Twists and the body mists and such that they do.

I tell you, there is nothing like walking into a Payless and seeing perfume. That’ll really kick in your snobbish good nature like nobody’s biz! As you know from my prior posts, Payless now carries a line of cosmetics, bath and body, and fragrance.

I did so pick up a the Unforgettable Moments Promise Eau de Toilette out of pure whim last week and brought it all the way back here to review for you.
