Pacifica California Star Jasmine Perfume Review

Ahh California. Particularly Southern California where it never rains or at least it never does when I visit. Perfect weather, perfect sky, perfect ocean…..I probably couldn’t live full time in California but lord knows I love visiting a few times a year (I like my four seasons too much to live there!).

Inspired by a Southern California, Pacific California Star Jasmine Perfume is the newest fragrance launch from Pacific.

Kat Von D Adora Perfume Rollerball Review

Dude, did you hear…

Kat Von D tweeted she’s dating Jesse James.

Oh Lawd.

Seriously?

Ok, ’nuff celebrity gossip for today.

As you know Kat Von D’s Fall Collection 2010 consists of a brand new fragrance from the tattooed goddess, entitled Adora. I just wanna say I adora you all…ha! Sorry that was screaming for me to play on it.

Kat Von D Adora Perfume Rollerball 1

This is Kat’s third scent with Saint and Sinner being part of the original release. I’ve only casually sniffed both Saint and Sinner and I know you’ve wanted reviews of them for a while now, promise I’ll get on that soon.

Adora means “beloved one” in Latin which is what this fragrance is all about, a romantic, sensually sweet blend of fruits and floral.

Lush Cosmetics Vanillary Fragrance Review: Reader Request

If you asked me what my ideal perfume scent would be, I’d probably answer and say something like gummi bears!

Yeah, I’m hardcore when it comes to sweet scents. I really love fruity, sweet candy-like blends but…….I do tend to migrate to unusual ones as well like spicy florals or interesting fruity florals. I’m a Jill of all Trades when it comes to fragrance however I definitely feel most comfortable with something sweet.

A reader wrote to me recently and said, “Muse, I know you’re keen on sweet stuff but have you tried Lush Vanillary?”

Why, yes, I have.

Vanilla is outside my norm to be honest and it’s not something I seek out in my fragrances however with Lush’s name stamped all over it, it’s instantly something I purchased as soon as it released last year.

There’s one thing you should always remember about Lush, THEY KNOW how to create good fragrance.

Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina Review

Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina 1

Although poisonous, Snow White was pretty much attracted to sinking her teeth into that crunchy, red apple that her wicked stepmother presented to her.  Who could blame her, girlfriend was hungry after walking around that forest all day!

Ahh apples. There’s just something terribly enchanting about a bright, shiny, apple. Speaking of enchanting apples…..Nina Ricci always charms my money right out of my pocket with her whimsical little apple shaped fragrances.

So kawaii!

Anyone sniff Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina the newest fragrance in the line?
