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.
What scents do you commonly associate with Halloween? For me apples, candy corn, and black licorice come to mind first. How about Candy Corn Coated Candy Apple? Think of a bright red apple engulfed in a crunchy candy coating and rolled in crushed candy corn….yay or nay?
Proves yay as a scent.
Walking into a Lush Cosmetics Store is one of life’s greatest joys. Happiness is just taking a good healthy sniff of all that’s on offer at a Lush Store.
Considering Lush doesn’t wrap any of its Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars, Massage Bars, Etc….walking into the shop is a sensory explosion as all the scents from your favorite products get combined and lumped into one great note that can simply be deemed as “that Lush store fragrance…”
Like most Lush fans, I’ve always wanted to capture that essence in a bottle and hide it away so I can sniff it in the comfort of my own home and on occasion I’ve wished that Lush could blend that cocktail together and create a fragrance of it.
Now some folks claim Lush shops are a tad overwhelming in the realms of scent and even nauseating as it’s a tad too much for them however I absolutely love it and most good Lushies do too!
The new Gorilla Perfume that recently launched, the first of many fragrances from Lush under the Gorilla Perfume label, does, in fact, smell like a Lush store to me.
Let’s have a look!
Has anyone ever smelled Lush V? Or Lush Bathos? Both have this incredible note of violet that’s so beautiful yet so strong it gives you a headache.
How can something as delicate as a violet come across so terribly harsh?
I’ve always tolerated both V and Bathos but I secretly wished that Lush would tame them down and create a more softer, gentler scent.
In comes Prada Infusion D’iris which is exactly what I had always hoped for in a violet scent. So soft, so delicate, so very perfect.
Take a look!
A few years ago I wrote an article entitled Touches of Fall. In my long babbling post I gave you some details about “the Lab” aka Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, I hope today you might revisit that post by clicking here if you are not familiar with the brand.
You may wonder why I’m directing you to the post.
Well, I recently got my haul of Halloweenie Perfume Oils from the Lab and I wanted to share a few reviews with you but if you never heard of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab (BPAL) you might be a little confused how to purchase, what the product is, etc….the article I’ve directed to you covers alot of aspects of the company, what they sell, etc…..this will help when you jump ahead to read my review.
Halloween is near and dear to my heart and every year I look forward to the Lab’s release of Halloweenie Perfume Oils.
Today I’ll be reviewing Golletes for you!
