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.
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!

Stop back tell me what it chooses for you!
My sis is absolutely in lust with all things Donna Karan particularly Cashmere Mist. For the past several years Donna Karan Cashmere is her signature scent of choice. Recently, I found out that the scent is turning 15 years old. Gasp! Who knew?
DK created the signature scent out of love for the luxurious fabric because she adores it and designs with it, wears it, sleeps with it, and uses it all year round. The Muse can appreciate that feeling as cashmere is such a gorgeous, posh fabric and so positively soft on skin!
The scent itself is as comforting and soft as the fabric with a combination of sensual lily of the valley, vanilla, amber, and bergamot. The line itself is so popular (not only with my sister but everyone else on the planet) that the collection consists of twenty different products including shampoo.
Happy Birthday Cashmere Mist! Funny as my sister’s birthday is in August too…how fitting!

Overall, the mark Self Sanctuary Berry Cranberry Collection is a unique blend of berries. I’m quite interested to see what the combination of cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry smells like. I suspect intensely sweet which is exactly how I like my fragrances. It’s inexpensive so it’s a rather nice little treat for yourself without breaking the bank. I think I’ll snag the mist to start.
It’s available now from the mark website!
Be saintly…or full of sin, no matter which Kat Von D understands your twisted personality. Her new fragrance release is getting quite a few raves and looks like on top of the brand new perfumes she’s gone and released a few other exciting items.

I’m dying to indulge myself.
