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.
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….
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!

To wrap up the week today I’ll be reviewing the Harajuku Lovers Fragrance G which is my very favorite scent from the collection!
Never one to get lost in the crowd, G leads her crew in a white, corseted top and a blue miniskirt á 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.
I’m kinda sad to end these posts as I was having so much fun reviewing them! I hope that Gwen will introduce us to a brand new lot of fragrances really soon as I totally adored all of the Harajuku Lovers Fragrances and each girl had something unique and special to offer! All the scents are Muse Approved for purchase! You should def check ‘em out for yourself!
Now Baby is exactly what you’d come to expect from a scent named so. She’s smells exactly like a baby! Soft, powder fresh, and sweet!
One bat of her lashes and Baby has all the boys in the palm of her hand! Pretty in pink, Baby steps out in a short baby doll dress and sweet Mary Janes. Her scent is a powdery floral with notes of white rose, orange flower, and white musk.
Don’t get confused by her notes of white rose, orange flower, and musk because honestly she’s a purely powder scent and holds no notes of floral for me. Although the sound of a powder fresh scent may be slightly off putting for some I think it’s a rather fresh, clean smell that anyone can appreciate. Baby also happens to linger quite strongly for such a soft smell! She sweet and she’s clean and she holds that special flirty fun feel that all the Harajuku Lovers Fragrances have in common!
The Muse liked this one alot! Although Music and G remains her favorite Baby falls closely behind! By the way I actually discovered a “baby” who loves Love! Meet Mylee who’s mum runs Wake Up to Makeup! Mylee obviously thinks Love is super! Who thinks we should just give Mylee the coffret because she’s just so bloody cute!
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!
