Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Tropical Coolers

These are worthy of a mention. Behold, Victoria’s Secret New Beauty Rush line up entitled Tropical Coolers:

I’m not going to say these are amazing because they are sadly not. However, I was drawn in when I seen the display and scent selection. I found myself heading to the till to pay for three bottles while struggling to hold them all in my arms. I made it safely there and before I knew it I had shelled out $24 USD and tax.

I’ve tried Victoria’s Beauty Rush Body Double Mist before but as I said I was tempted by these new scents. If you’re unfamiliar with these they are simply a dual layer fragrance that mixes a fragranced water base with a fragranced oil base. This basically translates as you’re getting a moisturizing scented body spray!

They work fabulous on wet skin and it’s kinda the feeling of a dry oil spray that conditions, softens, and leaves behind a gorgeous scent.

Sadly, the thing that I dislike about these is the scent doesn’t linger nearly as long as I’d like. When you spray on the first time you get a super healthy amount of fragrance that smells both fresh and fruity however the staying powder is zero and within an hour you’ll need to retouch up sadly. This could be my body chemistry that sucks the scent right in but it does happen to my sister too so I’m not the only one experiencing the problem with these!

I’m quite upset at this because I do generally love the scents they put out and I’ve tried virtually all of ‘em but they don’t linger at all!

The three that sucked me in were from a new line entitled Tropical Coolers. It’s three new scents that are called Lotta Colada, Punchy, and Mango Madness! All three are super duper sweet and fruity and true to the name.

Shown below after being shaken. Once shaken the oil and water base combine to create a beautifully, conditioning body spray!

For the price you can’t really not avoid picking up one or two up to try out. They aren’t nearly so nice to tote around in your bag for touch ups since they are so big.

They really smell sincerely heavenly….now if we can convince Victoria’s Secret to make them a touch stronger we’d have a winner here!

Tried these?

Love ‘em?

Not so much?

Summer Must Have Fragrance: Clean Summer Review

The Summmmmmmmmmmmer wind came blowing in from across the seaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! It lingered there and touched your hair………….

Sorry I got caught up for a second there! Sinatra does that to me!

What was I saying now?

Oh yea!

My review on Clean Summer!

Picture+223

Clean is one of my favorite lines of fragrance around. It’s one of the few lines of perfume that holds a wonderful linger, has a fantastic throw, and just contains unique, complex notes that just make me a happy Muse

Although Clean carries a rather hefty price tag you’ll be happy to shell out your hard earned money for some of their fragrances as they are Eau de Parfum not Eau de Toilette meaning long, lingering, gorgeous scent that lasts all day into the evening!

I own a majority of every single product Clean has put out thus far and I happily added the newest fragrance released from Clean to my collection recently entitled Summer! How fitting a name for a wonderful Summer fragrance!

Clean Summer is slightly different from previous Clean releases as it happens to be an Eau Frachie which means it contains almost no alchohol and is better for your skin and provides moisturizing benefits. Cool! A beautiful Summer scent that not only smells gorgeous but is also beneficial to my skin.

Although Eau de Frachie fragrances normally contain about 3% perfume oil this shouldn’t sway you from purchasing Clean Summer as the throw is quite good and the linger lasts throughout the day. I did three squirts on a humid day and I was left smelling yummie all day and well into the evening! I also happened to score about three compliments asking what I was wearing that day alone!

The notes in this are Crisp Bargamot, Rose Ice, Mirabelle Plum, Lily of the Valley, and Italian Limoncello. The fragrance is very complex and you won’t be able to pick out exact notes (unless you have a super sense of smell!) however I did find the dominant note was the Italian Limoncello. The lemon pulled through beautifully and just gave me that beautiful illusion of a fresh, cool Summer day. As humans we associate certain smells with certain events or times in our lives and Clean Summer happens to put me in the spirit of a lovely Summer day! It smells like sunshine in a bottle!

If you have a body chemistry that sucks scent and fragrance up you might want to consider layering Clean Summer with it’s matching Soft, Refreshing Lotion for added fragrance throw and staying power. The lotion has a gorgeous matching scent and has a light cooling effect on the skin!

I’m rather loving Clean Summer at the moment and I’m quite excited I got the chance to test drive it out. The Muse definately slaps a seal of Muse Approval on this one and adds it to the Must Have Summer Fragrance list!

Benefit BSpot

I’m willing to give Benefit’s newest fragrance a try since I’m such a huge fan of Maybe Baby!

untitled52465

At first glance it sounds like a rather odd combo of notes. A blend of mangos, freesia, peony, and sandalwood? Whoa. That’s alot to partake of in one bottle.

But I’ll give Benefit a chance with this one! I’ll be heading into Sephora to have a sniff! Hey you never know it could be another winner!

Hot Summer Scents: Victoria’s Secret Summer 2008 "Sentual Fruit" Collection

I prefer a lighter fragrance in the Summer and Victoria’s Secret new “Sensual Fruit” Collection is the perfect combination of a light and sweet scent for the hot weather!

I picked these up a few weeks ago at Victoria’s Secret and I’m quite happy I purchased them as the weather is beginning to get humid and I really like a quick body spray that lingers on in the sticky heat!

I picked up Dewy Peach and Juicy Apple both of which are a lovely cocktail of sweet fruit! I find these linger all day when I layer them with the lotion and I’m left with just the right amount of scent that’s light enough for Summer wear and tear.

The price can’t be beat at 4 for $19.99 USD or 7 for $29.99. You can mix and match till your heart’s content which is a plus for me as I can never make up my mind!

I enjoy a nice light fragrance in the Summer and these fit the bill perfectly!

What’s your Summer Scent preference?

I’m all for relieving my childhood and Demeter Fragrance has me covered for reminiscing about days of old with it’s Tootsie Collection!

Check out these old childhood favorites available now from Demeter:

Tropical Dots Left

Junior Mints Left

Tootsie Roll Left

I can’t help but sing when I see this bottle! “The world looks mighty good to me because tootsie rolls are all I see! Whatever it is I think, I see becomes a Tootsie Roll to me”….why do I have this strange feeling all my readers that are 25 or under have no idea what I am on about…

I rarely eat candy or chocolate but at least I can have both without the calories in a perfume spray!
