Anyone try the new Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Fragrances yet? I got ’em in the mail yesterday and proceeded to go to down misting myself silly.
My best friend Jai was with me at the time and he just gave me the silent eye raise that translated as, “You are so not doing that.” Hey, that’s part of the fun of trying new fragrances eh?
Wicked Style is a really huge revamp from the original line up. We discussed it in prior posts but it deserves a re-mention here. The girls now have velvet-y bobble-like heads and outfits that adapt various fashion styles from Japan. Baby for example is wearing Kawaii Decora which is a playful style adapted from younger Japanese girls that uses lots of layering and bright or pastel colors and accessories that include furry toys and jewelry.
Looking for a special Holiday scent for anyone? I always have trouble with this one. Scent is such a personal thing and it’s difficult figuring out what someone will and won’t love no matter how much you keep them in the forefront of your mind when purchasing. I know my own senses take over and I begin selecting scents that would appeal to me and not the person I am gifting.
If you happen to be in the market for a softer, feminine floral you might want to check out Twirl by Kate Spade. I told you about it months ago and really it was all about the name for me at the time since Kate Spade is one my fav designers. I own a few of her more whimiscal purses and bags but none of that follows through in her fragrance. Twirl is more about capturing soft floral notes and bottling them up into a garden bouquet.
I dunno about you but I really like tart citrusy scents like lemon, orange, and grapefruit. You know those ones that make you suck your lips in like a goldfish.
I do not however associate such scents with Sanrio characters like Little Twin Stars though. As you know Demeter recently introduced scents for a few of our fav Sanrio characters such as Hello Kitty and My Melody.
Little Twins Tart scent is a tart grapefruit….
Let’s check her out!
When I was a kid and well into adulthood I love/loved Hello Kitty. Yes, I say it’s ok to admit to loving Hello Kitty even when you’re far from your tween years.
Now…I gotta admit…Isn’t My Melody way cuter though? Must be those ickle wabbit ears that make her so much sweeter looking than Hello Kitty right? Plus she’s like a hybrid isn’t she? Fake ears but a real rabbit tail…so is she a cat or is she a rabbit or is she a hybrid of both!? If we take those ears away what’s hiding underneath!?
These are the questions that keep me up at night….
Speaking of cute I spritzed myself this morning with the Demeter My Melody Cologne Spray.
I hope everyone got the chance to indulge in the Lush Forum Fragrances earlier this month. Mine arrived yesterday much to my delight and I could have literally sat for ages simply sniffing the box it came in rather than the actual fragrances.
My fav so far? Obviously Day of the Dead. Day of the Dead has to be one of Lush’s best fragrances to date and I can’t believe it was only around for Halloween.
But now I can re-live that beautiful scent again and again and again with the perfume!
