Jump ahead to hear about Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Luxe Edition.

I mentioned in a prior post that Cashmere Mist was having a 15 year anniversary this year which I’m sure sparked the release of this Luxe Edition. My sister is a fond fan of the scent and was ever so delighted to try out this release…yes the Muse has been known to share a time or two.

I’m so used to the scent of the toilette that the parfum was quite a delightful surprise. Although very similar in scent I took note that the parfum manages to come across softer and truer to it’s notes than the toilette does.

Inspired by the comforting warmth of cashmere this scent will envelope you in a soft, intimate fragrance that’s flattering for both day and night wear. Notes of Lily of the Valley, Suede, Bergamot, Ylang, and Jasmine create a gentle, dominate base that enhance a key note for me which is vanilla. Although the blend has edger notes such as Patchouli, Musk, and Amber for the most part you’ll get a very comfortable, intimately blended fragrance that’s easy on the nose and very sexy.

This is my first time trying the parfum as my sister normally has the toilette hanging around. It manages to linger alot longer on my skin than the regular toilette and I also experienced notes in a new way as the toilette manages to come across a little softer where as this came on a tad stronger and truer.

If you’re a lover of Cashmere Mist you’ll want to snatch this Luxe Edition up for yourself. It’s available now from Sephora, Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Bloomingdale’s.

Victoria’s Secret I Love Coconut Collection

Victorias Secret I Love Coconut Collection 1

Ok, nobody panic but I think someone forgot to send out the memo to Victoria’s Secret about it being Fall.

Oops.

With the introduction of the new Victoria’s Secret I Love Coconut Collection one does wonder what’s up at VS headquarters. Maybe they are just in denial that the season is over and in honor of it still being Summer over at Victoria’s Secret they decided to bring us a tropical coconut collection to make us yearn for those long, humid days.

Could be anything but the Muse chooses to believe that someone screwed up and didn’t tell them it’s Fall.

It’s ok though, I can still so get excited about coconut.

Jump for it!

Bath & Body Works’ New Fragrance Widget

Bath+%26+Body+Works%27+New+Fragrance+Widget

Anyone try the new Bath & Body Works’ New Fragrance Widget? What I’m a geeky I adore stupid stuff like this.

Basically it works like a quiz asking you questions and the likes and than it proceeds to customize the perfect fragrance for you.

Bath+and+Body+Works+Signature+Collection+Mandarin+Mango+1

Check out the deets after the jump and find out which fragrance it picked for me.

The application basically allows you to create a customizable fragrance profile in a few seconds and offers you the perfect scent selection that it believes you’ll love. It chooses characteristics that you describe to help you find your ideal scent.

After fiddling around with it a few times it recommended me Bath and Body Works Signature Collection Mandarin Mango. Obviously it works as I adore fruity, sweet blends. Mandarin Mango isn’t so much sweet as more fruity, the harsh edge from the mandarin gives it a slightly sour base which dominates much of the blend but the fruity base of mango also provides that juicy, sweet feeling to keep the fragrance light and fresh. Likey. It’s funny as I’d probably past this up for my normal scent at BBW so this totally allows me to try something different that was recommended to me, cheers!
