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.

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.

Flower by Kenzo Spring Fragrance


Flower by Kenzo is taken up a notch this Spring with a new limited edition fragrance!

Flower by Kenzo Spring Fragrance brings in the change of season with a burst of lively mandarin and ginger notes with a refreshing bright touch of lychee for a beautiful Spring scent.

With a chic, slim line, frosted bottle with a pretty poppy swaying in a cool Spring breeze this fragrance celebrates the return of life with a warmer season.

Normally the Flower line is a tiny bit too strong for this Muse but count me curious to a Spring LE as maybe it’s light and soft like the season!

If you’re looking for a perfectly airy, fresh floral blend that’s light and cheerful for Spring the Muse highly recommends trying out Kenzo Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk. This fragrance is part of a three piece collection inspired by the beautiful flowers of Japan. Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk is soft floral blend with hints of a fruity dominate base. If you’re not partial to floral perfumes this would be one to try as it’s fruity base softens the floral and morphs it into a very crisp, light Spring scent that’s sure to please. Kenzo describes it as a silk flower that flutters gently in the breeze and indeed that’s a good description as it has an element of airiness as one would experience when the cool wind of Spring is blowing and only the barest hint of floral can be caught and sniffed on the breeze. The sweet fruity notes keep the floral fresh and clean making the fragrance incredibly easy and flattering to wear!

Although it’s an Eau de Toilette it manages to linger nicely and give off a soft throw that’s very pleasant and quite long wearing. If you like softer blends that smell clean and light with hints of both floral and fruit and a bit of peony this would be something you’d love.

Also released for Spring are Eau de Fleur de Magnolia and Eau de Fleur de the Tea. All three fragrances are available for a very limited time from Kenzo so if you’re wanting to spice up your Spring wardrobe with a brand new scent these are sure to please.

Kenzo Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk is available now from Kenzo and is Muse Approved for purchase. It’s an incredibly beautiful scent to shake off the long Winter and get you in the mood for Spring!

In the Muse’s Purse: Clean Fun Perfume Oil

in+the+muse%27s+purse

Inside my purse is a Clean Fun Roll On Perfume Oil that I never leave home without!

Clean+Fun+Perfume+Oil+1

Find out why….

The Muse happens to be the biggest fan Clean Perfume probably ever had but she’s so mad at them for never bringing Clean Fun out in EDP format. Oh my god it’s the awesome. I can’t believe they never thought to make it into a perfume but just left it as an oil!

How they managed to bottle up the fresh scent of a shower with super fun, flirty blast of citrus is beyond me but that’s exactly what it reminds me of. A cross between “clean”, “fruity”, and “sweet”. It’s heaven. Notes of Green Tangerine, Grapefruit, Orange and Limes create a wonderful wake me up fragrance that lives up to it’s name, “Fun!”

I tote Clean Fun around with me everywhere and use it as a quick touch up when my perfume has long since worn away. It’s the perfect perfume oil for nights I am leaving from work and heading out with friends for dinner, a movie, or just to hang out. It wakes up me, keeps people asking me, “what are you wearing?”, and puts me in good spirits!

Such a fun, uplifting scent! Clean Fun Perfume Oil is in this Muse’s purse!

Pacifica Solid Perfume Review: Pacifica Lotus Garden, Pacifica Bali Lime Papaya, Pacifica Tunisian Jasmine, and Pacifica Egyptian Bergamot Rose

When I noticed that one of newest brands that Sephora is carrying at the moment was Pacifica I got all kinds of hyper. With high standards about what goes in their products plus an inexpensive price tag, Pacifica is a user friendly product on all accounts.

Facing a declining economy plus a need for more vegan/organic brands, Pacifica comes out as a shining beacon. With plenty of bath and body options in large sizes with small price tags the brand manages to appeal to our need for more all while paying alot less.

I’ll be featuring several items from the Pacifica Collection over the course of the next few days as I’m so deeply impressed with the quality and the price. I’m positive after you hearing my raves you’ll want to indulge in a few items yourself!

Jump ahead to hear me babbling in joy over Pacifica Solid Perfume!

Boxed up in brightly packaged slide boxes, Pacific Solid Perfumes captivate and make a girl want to reach out and grab one just to look at the sweet little boxes the perfumes are housed in. Although the box is gorgeous the real gold lays with in so slide it open to reveal a sweet little tin no bigger than a size of a MAC eyeshadow that houses a gorgeous little solid perfume that paraben-free ad made from organic coconut wax, organic soy wax, and natural and essential oils.

These sweet vegan friendly perfume solids pack an interesting, complex, and unique scent that’s traveler friendly and cute as a button! If you’re wanting to multitask you can use these solids not only as a perfume but also to rub on rough elbows, knees, and cracked heels for a bit of extra moisture but remember for the most part they are solid perfumes.

The scents all have a nice throw and a good linger but my body chemistry sucks them up so I do have to reapply throughout the day to keep the scent fresh. Considering the tins are so tiny I can tuck one in my makeup bag or desk draw for a quickie pick me up through the day. A bit on all my pulse points freshens up the scent and creates a subtle yet lovely little scent of goodness. I tried four of the blends but there are a slew of others. From fruity to natural, woodsy or herbal, Pacifica has that perfect little scent for everyone. The scents I tried were Lotus Garden, Tunisian Jasmine, Bali Lime Papaya, and Egyptian Bergmont Rose.

Pacifica Solid Perfume in Lotus Garden was recommended to me and I must say it’s the very best of all four. I was thinking how floral it would be but it’s actually very fresh with hints of fruit and a tiny underlay of floral. Incredible scent. The dominant note that takes over the blend for me is a crisp, clean citrus. The citrus keeps the blend fruity but it’s quickly followed up with green notes and a strong underlay of lotus which gives it a certain twang. Who would think that citrus and lotus would go so well together? The scent manages to have a fun element but also a sexy one. It’s truly something you have to experience to understand, an amazing fruity floral blend that’s fresh, clean, and sweet!

If it’s fruit you crave with a sweet kick Pacifica Solid Perfume in Bali Lime Papaya is sure to please! A dominant note of papaya will hit you right in the face on first sniff but the twang of lime morphs the blend and creates a sweet, tart blend that’s complex and fun, perfect Summer scent!

Pacifica Solid Perfume in Tunisian Jasmine is ridiculously good. I don’t particularly like the scent of jasmine and this is straight up, in your face jasmine but oh it’s something special. It contains Mediterranean almond which could account for what makes this blend so incredible. It’s a really fresh, floral but very hardcore and heavy. It’s unique, very sexy, and utterly different. Loves it!

And finally, my last scent, I tried Pacifica Solid Perfume in Egyptian Bergamot Rose. Yet another complex and interesting blend full of warm, spicy notes and hints of floral this blend is sexy and flirty. I get a strong dominant note of a spicy musk for the most part but the rose and bergamont keep the scent fresher and slightly floral. I’d favor this for more of an evening scent!

At a sweet price tag of merely $9 USD each Pacifica Solid Perfumes won’t break your beauty budget. Each tiny tin is ideal for travel can be easily toted around for quickie touch ups on the fly. Pretty, bright, festive packaging keeps a Muse coming back for second and third helpings of these sweet little perfumes.

All in all I think Pacifica Solid Perfumes are truly a unique little beauty find and sure to please both vegan friendly and beauty budget gals alike!

The Muse loves ‘em! Cute, fun, and unique these are the perfect price for spoiling yourself.

Visit your local Sephora to grab some fantastic Steals and Deals from Pacifica, you’ll notice you get alot more for alot less! Likey!
