Prescriptives Calyx Review

Say Hello to my wake me up before I go, go fragrance!

Picture+019

Oh my god can I tell you my sister and I missed the boat with George Michael! We so didn’t know he was gay until around 2000…what the hell? I attract gay men like a magnet why didn’t I know about this? I think it was that Father Figure video that fooled us! All that sex couldn’t be acted! Turns out it could be….darn….I can’t lie and say we weren’t disappointed (this was at the point where George Michael was hot sex on wheels of course) however it does open a new door for me as now I so want to be BFF’s with George Michael! I know he’d just love my taste in fragrance…and cosmetics….and we could wear each others fabulous clothes, actually I could wear his fabulous clothes…I’m unsure if my closet holds anything fabulous….

Anyway….

I was about to tell you all about my new love, Prescriptives Calyx! Oh my god such a refreshing, tart, gorgeous wake me up scent! I haven’t really been in touch with Prescriptives fragrances since Flirt! Remember Flirt? It was my favorite perfume evers way back in the day but it can easily be replaced by Prescriptives Calyx…way betters people!

The exhilarating tangy, tartness of Calyx totally appeals and is exactly what I’ve been searching for in a fragrance forever. Something fun, upbeat, really refreshing, with just the right amount of pop! The notes include a blend of grapefruit (very dominant note), mandarin, tropical passion fruits, mango, papaya, and guave. Fruitylicious! I think the grapefruit successfully dominates the other notes in the blend to create a really refreshing fragrance that has a huge twang to it! Other notes include florals such as rose, lily, jasmin, and marigold and base notes of oakmoss, sandalwood, and vertiver. Personally I get a dominant note of grapefruit with a hints of lily and a shot of vetiver which makes this very tart.

I simply love this one and can’t say enough good things about it! I highly recommend trying it out for yourself if you like tart, fruity blends with a tiny hint of floral. Sounds weird combining lily with grapefruit but I promise it creates an interesting blend that’s sure to please!

Harajuku Lovers Thanksgiving Day Float at the Macy’s Parade

Guys, guys, guys! Look!

HLFloat1

HLFloat2

Tis the Harajuku Lovers Thanksgiving Day Float that will be making a special appearance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! The Muse is quite excited about this! She can’t help herself she loves the idea of a Harajuku Lovers Float…

Sadly, I’ll won’t be in the city for Thanksgiving Day this year so the Muse will miss the awesome float but no worries I’ll be glued to the tube watching the parade with my family and friends on the big day!

If you’re in New York or will be visiting New York for the parade you can head over to Columbus Circle (west side of the street; Broadway between 38th and 58th Street and 34th Street, the south side of the street b ween Broadway and 7th Avenue) to catch your glimpse of the Harajuku Lovers Thanksgiving Day Float! This will be between 9am and 12pm on Thanksgiving Day!

The float is inspired by the downtown Harajuku area in Tokyo and will feature multi-levels with glass platforms that show the lights of Tokyo in full effect! On board will be the balloonhead alter agos of Love, Lil Angel, Music, Baby, and G and also taking the trip through Manhattan will be the real Love, Angel, Music and Baby!

In addition to seeing the float, there will also be team members handing out samples of the fragrances and cards for a special gift with purchase! If you’re going to be there you better take pictures for the Muse! She wants to see it up close and personal!

Check out more images of the float by checking out the official Harajuku Lovers Flickr feed! For further info about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade you can click here!

Demeter Swimming Pool Pick-Me-Up Cologne Spray Review

Guys! It’s like freaking 30 degrees outside!

Um hello holy coldness Batman!

I was bred, born, and raised in New York and I have to say the last few years have been thee most excellent roller coaster weather wise! I swear you never know what you’ll get next! Weather is like a box of chocolates here in our little city!

Al Gore told me it’s Global Warming but I don’t believe him because he also said he created the Internet!

Honestly, I remember when Fall was Fall and we had nice brisk weather that you needed a sweater for or a hoodie! Now a days it’s somewhat like getting ready to go deep sea diving as you need a snow suit and a pile of warm clothes to face the freezing cold outside!

The weather may be frightful outside but I can re-live the warmth of Summer by indulging in Demeter Swimming Pool Pick-Me-Up Cologne Spray! This soft, aquatic scent carries a fresh ozone base that’s reminiscent of a fresh laundered towel! Demeter Swimming Pool allows me to savor the warm weather anywhere, anytime (even in 30 degree weather) while I reminisce about the memory of a swim in a cool pool on a hot, humid day!

I hosed myself down with Demeter Swimming Pool this morning, stepped outside, closed my eyes, and pictured the warm weather.

Guess what happened?

I still froze my bloody arse off! But at least I smelled aquatic, fresh, and lovely! Thanks Demeter!

The Muse suggests checking some out!
Maybe it’ll keep you warm this Winter!

Vera Wang Look Eau de Parfum Review

In 1989 Roxette had the Look:

Or at least the juvenile Muse thought so! The floor is now open to slander Roxette’s bad hair…I’ll turn away while you do so….

Done?

Ok!

In 2008 Verg Wang Look has “the Look”, minus the bad hair of course! Vera Wang Look is a new Eau de Parfum that represents the style and passion that Vera Wang’s new Fall/Winter Fashion Line introduces for 2008-2009.

Vera Wang Look is dominantly a soft floral with notes of lily, freesia, and jasmine but other notes such as sweet vanilla, musk, and deliches apple create a sparkling soft fragrance that manages to have a sophisticated yet fun edge. I got a rather clean, crisp citrus like scent from Vera Wang Look. If you enjoy soft florals, brisk, clean blends this would be something you’d love. Vera Wang Look is ideally perfect for a day time fragrance in the Muse’s opinion. Look extends it’s clean, sparkling look to it’s packaging as the scent is held in a simple, clear prism bottle.

Taking into consideration that Vera Wang Look is an Eau de Parfum you’ll have a good long wear time on this. I used about three squirts and it extended from around 6 in the morning all the way into the evening around 7 when it started to wear down slightly but still held a rather nice touch of scent.

All in all Vera Wang Look is something worth checking out for yourself! The collection consists of the main fragrance plus additional items to layer with such as a sheer body lotion, body cream and more!

Vera Wang Look is currently available at Nordstrom’s, Bloomingdale’s, and other select department stores. Do stop in and have a sniff for yourself the Muse thinks you’ll love it!

Tried it yet?

Liked it?

What are your favorite Vera Wang fragrances?

Tell the Muse!

Never one to get lost in the crowd, G leads her crew in a white, corseted top and a blue miniskirt la Alice in Wonderland. Quirky, unique, and undeniably cool, G is the leader of the pack. Her scent is an oriental, fruity, gourmand fragrance with notes of fresh coconut, jasmine, and cotton woods.

Although G has some sincerely amazing notes like Mandarin, Jasmine Sambac, Sandalwood and Coconut. Personally the Muse gets toasty coconut as the most dominant note so toasty in fact that she wants to roll around in it! The scent is quite tropical and gorgeous! It’s a creamy coconut blend with hints of jasmine and floral. Although the coconut is the most dominant note you can get certain whiffs of unique, exotic secondary notes like the jasmine and sandalwood. It’s really a rather warm fragrance that makes me think of the warm, humid Summer! G is on top of my favorite list so I love anything that has tropical aspects to it. I recommend G if you like your blends warm and fun.
