Harajuku Lovers Love Review

They say all we need is love! Personally the Muse thinks all we need is more John Lennon but hey who am I to complain?

In the case of Harajuku Lovers Fragrances it’s possible that Love may be all you need! Love like her name is sweet, romantic and sensual.

Sweet, Caring, and Free Spirited, Love is always off in her own little world. Stepping out in a cute, striped mini dress and fashionable red kicks, Love wears her heart on her sleeve, or rather in her hair! Her scent is reminiscent of a floral bouquet, with notes of pink pomelo rose and creamy vanilla orchid.

Love starts out with hints of peach but has a slow build up of peony, rose, and jasmine to create a floral dry down that’s laden with hints of beautiful vanilla. When compared with her sisters, she happens to be on the softer side of the scents and carries a beautiful soft finish!

If you like your blends romantic and sensual with hints of soft florals Love is probably all you need! The Muse thought love was a rather beautiful blend of flowers with a tiny hint of sweet peach and a hard base of vanilla that made the blend beautiful for both day and evening! As with all the Harajuku Girls fragrances, Love does contain a good dose of fun!

Harajuku Lovers Music Review

To celebrate the Muse’s latest contest to win a Harajuku Girls Solid Perfume Coffret she thought she’d do a week in review of each Harajuku Fragrance!

I’ve already reviewed these prior but that was by nose alone considering that I had only tried out ‘Lil Angel and reviewed the other based on scent cards! I’ve since gotten the chance to test this out by spraying, smelling, and testing them out on myself so I can give a better more detail review of each blend! Yay! Each Harajuku Girl fragrance is unique and interesting to say the least! I’m starting my review today with the Harajuku Girls Fragrance Music.

Always looking to make someone laugh, charismatic Music has no qualms telling it like it is! Stylin’ in a smocked sailor outfit and black lace-up boxing boots, Music marches to the beat of her own drum! Her scent is fruity floral with notes of pear, sweet pea, and sleek wood!

Music’s fruity base of pear dominates her fragrance but the combination of sweet pea creates a very special, unique floral blend that’s fun and lively! Although all five scents are something I savored and enjoyed I must say that I lean towards Music as topping my favorite list as she’s definitely different to say the least. Music manages to combine fun and sexy thanks to the slight woodsy vanilla note that comes out after dry down. The scent manages to last all day with 2-3 sprays which is pretty brilliant when taking into consideration these are EDT’s! Music should appeal to those who like a fresh, fruity, flirty blend.

The Muse likes this one because although it has touches of floral yet it still manages to remain sweet and the Muse is all about sweet blends! Music is a favorite for this Muse and says to give it a shot for yourself! It’s Muse Approved for purchase!

Hey Guys!

Happy Friday!

Next week I’m bringing you a Week in Review of the brand new Harajuku Girl Fragrances. I covered these before but I wanted to do an individual review of each perfume because I got an overwhelming amount of e-mails asking how these are, if they are worth purchasing, key notes in the blends, etc…etc…Rather then answer all those e-mails I thought I’d just post a review a day of each fragrance giving you further details about each one, what my favorites are, what they smell like, etc….

In honor of my Week in Review I’ll be doing a little contest here on Musings! I know how much you adore my quirky contests where I do my geeky trivia but I’m going to keep this one rather clean and simple!

Lush Snow Showers Solid Perfume Review

Tis that special time of the year kids when Lush presents us with the Muse’s second favorite Holiday item from Lush!

We know Muse, we know!

It’s snowcake!

Shhhh! Don’t be so quick there lovies! I said SECOND favorite! It’s not Snowcake but it’s almost as good! It’s Snow Showers!

Yay!!!!!

Cure the music, strike up the band, let’s celebrate good times come on! We need Kool & The Gang to help us with this one!

What? I couldn’t embed the original Kool & The Gang video so you’ll have to settle for the Chipmunks! Sorry ’bout that! Yaaawhooooooooooooo! No matter how many times I hear that song (especially when I’m on a cruise) it never gets tiring!

Celebrationnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!! Let’s all Celebrate and have a good time!

Anyway.

As I listen to the original version of Celebration and you listen to the Chipmunks screech your ear off I’ll give you the deets on Lush Snow Showers!

Excited?

Lush Snow Showers was originally renamed Champagne Snow Showers. The Muse isn’t sure why or when but the name evovled into simply Snow Showers….she actually kinda misses the old name as it was quite fitting for what Snow Showers actually smelled like.

Snow Showers has come and gone in various bath bombs but it sticks around for most of the Holiday Season in Lush Jelly form and Lush Solid Perfume. The Muse is not particularly fond of Lush Jellies but she admits that come the Holiday she indulges in purchasing some Snow Shower Jelly to ring in the new season!

Snow Showers carries the wonderful smell of wild oranges and cognac while managing to tickle your nose with an effervescent fresh citrus scent that’s reminiscent of a cold bottle of Champs on ice!

Although I’m not the biggest fan and supporter of Lush Solid Perfumes I do admit that when I got Lush Snow Showers Solid Perfume I was quite happy to see the formula has improved slightly! I felt like this year the solid had quite a good strong, throw when applied! I like tucking this into my purse for touch ups when I’m wearing my very rare bottle of Snow Showers perfume that I got from a UK Forum Party a year or two ago.

Honestly, taking into consideration that the fabulous scent of Snow Showers is only available in Jelly and Solid form the Muse does suggest and recommend nabbing one or both as the scent is intoxicatingly addicting and well worth checking out for yourself! The Muse guarantees you won’t be able to resist it’s gorgeous allure!

Lush Solid Perfume in Snow Showers makes a guest starring appearance in this Muse’s makeup bag!

Get yours from Lush before they are gone! Don’t want to have to wait till next Holiday to indulge do you?

Avon Bond Girl 007 Eau de Parfum Review

Your mission should you choose to accept it is….

Oh wait wrong movie!

Bond, James Bond.

The Muse got the new Avon Bond Girl 007 Eau de Parfum Spray yesterday and she thinks that she might be able to spray herself down with this and nab some hot Bond action! I’m pretty sure that with one quick spray of this seductive perfume I can easily bag myself Daniel Craig….he’ll never be able to resist me!

Hmmm or maybe I should go with Timothy Dalton circa 1980′s…he was always my favorite Bond….

The new Avon Bond Girl 0007 fragrance is supposedly impossible to resist and from the reviews on the Avon site I guess it’s true!

The Muse tried it out last night and it’s very interesting although not my normal style of perfume considering my tastes run to more sweeter blends. The perfume is quite a seductive, sexy blend of exotic orchid, white peach, and refreshing orange blossom. I honestly got mostly floral from the blend with a very firm dry down of patchouli. I’m normally not a big fan of patchouli but it’s honestly not as bad as you may be thinking since the other key notes in the scent take away from the harshness of the patchouli so you’re getting a rather seduction floral scent with hints of a stronger woodsy musk

The scent manages to linger quite long taking into consideration that it is an Eau de Parfum so it contains a good deal of perfume oils. It lasted at least 8 hours on me after two squirts and I actually felt like two was a bit too much! The fragrance comes housed in a slick curved bottle that displays the peach colored perfume perfectly.

Overall, it’s an interesting parfum and worth checking out considering if you purchase it from Avon for $30 USD you also get a free movie ticket to see the latest Bond film!

Avon Bond Girl 007 is available now from Avon for $30 USD plus your free movie ticket too!
