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!
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!
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!
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!
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!

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!
Ahh the Winter! Crisp, cold air….light, fluffy snowflakes…..Mmmm just thinking about it makes the Muse quite excited for it to begin!
Unfortunately, it’s still very Fall outside my office window today and Winter seems ages away but I can prepare myself for the colder weather by indulging in my new favorite fragrance from Clean entitled Clean Winter!
I love that Clean has recently extended it’s line up by adding a brand new scent every few months. It’s so fabulous that a brand I love so much has taken the initiative to extend it’s line up by adding on brand new fabulous scents to appease the fan base that know and love Clean!
Clean Winter has taken everything you love about the winter and created a fresh, crisp fragrance that’s sure to appeal to those who love a “clean” scent! Clean Winter is a cocktail of clean, soft florals, a hint of spice, and plenty of crisp Winter air. The scent is impossible to explain as it’s, like all Clean perfumes, a unique, complex blend. The scent is beyond a doubt very crisp and clean with hints of a sparkling base that gives the perfume that extra complexity.
Although it’s name may hint at it being a “seasonal” fragrance, the Muse felt it was more of a fresh scent that associates itself with Winter but can just as easily be passed off as an everyday scent that’s fresh, crisp, and simply Clean.
I really loved this one and highly recommend trying it out for yourself. Clean Winter can be found on HSN in a gift set with matching body cream for $48.95 USD or purchased on it’s own for the same price!
The Muse Approves it for purchase as she adores blends that are comforting, cool, and Winter fresh!
All my lovely Canadian readers should be happy about this one!
Exclusively at Sears in Canada as of October 18th you can visit your nearest Sears fragrances department and with the purchase of a Sarah Jessica Parker Eau de Parfum you can get a free copy of Sex and the City on DVD!
On occasion I’ll do a post about an item that my lovely Canadian readers are unable to get and I always here groans in my comment box about how unfair it is that they can’t get it…so now it’s the Muse’s turn to sadly sigh and say “No Fair!”
I want a free copy of Sex and the City!

I’m always so terrible with my fragrance reviews but I couldn’t help but want to test out and review Ralph Lauren Notorious for you this week!
It’s been a while in between my Ralph Lauren purchases and normally I indulge in his “fun” scents like Ralph, Ralph Rocks, Etc….however I took a step way up the ladder of sophication when I tried out Ralph Lauren Notorious for the first time last week! It’s seen been a staple fragrance in my wardrobe for the over a week since using it.
It is an Eau de Parfum which makes the staying power fantastically long wearing while lingering throughout the day and into the night! Two squirts pretty much gets me well into the evening which is especially good considering how my body chemistry sucks up fragrance extremely quick leading me to have to re-touch up throughout the day.
The scent is a very provocative, oriental blend that has traces of fresher notes like Italian Bergamot and Vanilla. It’s sophisticated enough for evening wear but manages to keep a lighter side that’s perfectly lovely for a work day as well. I was slightly frightened of the drydown notes of patchouli however it remains timelessly elegant.
The price is affordable at $45 USD for a 1 oz bottle of Eau de Parfum and the scent is works very well as a day or evening fragrance! All in all Ralph Lauren Notorious definately gets my seal of approval for purchase! Even thought it’s outside my normal, I really liked this one alot and Muse Approve it for purchase!
