Benefit BSpot

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

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 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…

Summer Fragrance: Thymes Red Cherie Cologne Spray Review

I’ve been wanting to try out Thymes Red Cherie Cologne for a while now! I saw so many reviews about it that my head was swimming with visions of how awesome it would be!

Picture+342

I finally got a chance to test drive Thymes Red Cherie for myself and I’m here to say that I am disappointed but I am also pretty excited.

I believe there might be a contradiction in there somewhere!

When I first heard the description of this I nearly fell over! Pomegranate, red cherries, passion flower…OH WOW! I really needed to smell like red cherries you see! I was thinking how fruity and gorgeous this would be! Turns out that I was quickly disappointed upon first sniff! Sadly it’s not as fruity as I had hoped!

However, the good news is I’ve fell in love with it as it’s such a playful scent that morphs as my body chemistry goes up and down!

When I first spray this on I get a floral almost sweet scent of the jasmine and passion flower. This lasts throughout the day but as my body temperature rises the floral turns this into a sweeter blend and it begins to sparkle and become effervescent! Almost lemony if that makes sense!

It’s a very happy, playful blend that’s sure to please anyone who likes fun fragrances! It may turn you off that it’s a Cologne Spray considering most woman have a problem with Cologne Spray not lasting long but the good news it’s very long wearing and lingers beautifully for me and it’s constantly changes and begins to smell differently as the day goes on!

If you’re looking for a unique, light scent for the Summer this is definately something you should consider purchasing!

Visit the Thymes Website for more great goodies! They have quite an amazing selection of unique scents and products for those of you who are as addicted to Bath and Body goodies as the Muse is!

Tried Thymes before?

Tried Red Cherie?

Banana Republic Minis Review

Banana Republic has extended it’s line of popular fragrances to a new size, MINIS! Now the beauty of Banana Republic fragrance is available in a tiny size with a smaller price tag! Purchasing a mini version of these fragrances is a perfectly great investment since they are Eau de Parfum and not Eau de Toillete which means a beautifully lingering scent with a tiny touch of product!

Picture+343

Each Mini is an exact replica of it’s full size parent and is 7.5 ML in size for a mere $10 USD! Scents available for woman are:

  • Alabaster
  • Rosewood
  • Malachite

I tested Malachite out and it’s a gorgeous blend of peony, sandalwood, and hyacinth. The notes may shout scary floral but it’s actually a very light, fresh, crisp floral that’s quite addicting once on! You’ll find yourself sniffing your wrists on more than one occasion throughout the day!

I personally love the price at $10 USD plus I like to have a purse friendly version to tote around with me for touching up throughout the day although the scent lingered for such a long time I actually didn’t have to reapply at the end of the day!

I’m pretty pleased after trying out Malachite and I’m now curious about Alabaster and Rosewood! Those are next on my list to purchase and try out!

You can purchase Banana Republic Minis directly from their site by clicking here or visit your local store to snag yourself a bottle or two!

Love Banana Republic?
