Escada Coffret Set: It’s Back!

Escada

Dear Escada,

I’m so sorry for not telling you how much I love you lately. I know I haven’t sent flowers in a while but that doesn’t mean I don’t care!

Always yours,
the Muse

The Muse had a sincere case of nostalgia when she noticed that Sephora is selling the Escada Coffret again. Sniff, excuse me I had to wipe a tear from my eye.

The Muse remembers years back when she purchased her very first Escada Coffret. The love affair started soon after.

Le sigh!

The new Escada Coffret at Sephora couldn’t help but bring back those memories. Available for $35 USD it contains six mini Escada fragrances. Ahhhh the memories…..the fond, fond memories.

Love ya Babs!


The Muse loves you Escada, thanks for bringing back the coffret, likey!

L’occitane Peach Blossom Collection

There’s something terribly attractive about peaches. Sweet, juicy, and fuzzy….ok, well maybe the fuzzy part isn’t all that appealing!


L’occitane obviously knows the value of a good peach which is why they have a brand new collection dedicated to that sweet, juicy, fuzzy fruit!

L’occitane Peach Blossom is a brand new exquisite fragrance that combines the scent of velvety white peaches with lemon, and bergamont with a base of
musk, iris, and tonka bean.

Considering how much I adore the lemony goodness of L’occitane Verbena I could probably quickly get on board with L’occitane Peach Blossom.

The collection is an array of limited edition pieces that include an EDT, lip gloss, body gel, shower gel and more! Prices range from $12-$46 USD. I was particularly delighted that the EDT was $46 USD as isn’t the 3.4 oz normally around $67-$76 USD or am I totally losing my mind here?

I’m feeling the love so I think I’ll head out to L’occitane too to nab some for a review.

What do you think?

Loves it?

Leaves it?

Tell the Muse!

Estee Lauder Pleasures Jasmine Violet Splash Review

Estee+Lauder+Pleasures+Jasmine+Violet+Splash+4

If you’re a big fan of the Estee Lauder Pleasure line you’ll be excited to learn that this Spring they have released three brand new variations of the line in a brand new formula!

Estee Lauder Pleasures Splash is available in three new scents with a brand new lighter formula to wear all over your body for a refreshing burst of pretty scent, perfect for Spring wear! The sheer, refreshing splashes are available in three unique blends for $52 USD each in 8.2oz size (whoa big!). The size of the bottle is impressing as heck as I recently tried out Jasmine Violet and was shocked at the huge size! What was also particularly a surprise was how well the scent lasted and lingered for a body splash. I wore mine most of this week from morning till evening without touch up in between and it lasted all day with a pleasant, soft floral throw.

Estee Lauder Pleasures Jasmine Violet Splash is a soft floral that blends fresh violet with notes of jasmine. At first sniff I thought it smelled somewhat like orchid but after it settles you’ll be able to get a dominant note of violet with touches cool cucumber and a certain fresh greenness. Notes also include carnation and tuberose. I’m big on florals but genuinely liked this.

Estee+Lauder+Pleasures+Jasmine+Violet+Splash+3

It’s large size and nice linger have tempted me to head to the counter to try out the other scents available in the line which are Sandalwood Amber and Baie Rose Peony.

If you’re looking for a simple, refreshing, light scent for the Spring/Summer I highly suggest trying out the new Estee Lauder Pleasures Splash. Quite an interesting little collection for the warmer weather ahead especially if you’re a big lover of floral blends.
