Cinderella So This is Love Eau de Parfume Review

Cinderella So This is Love Eau de Parfume

The enchanting Cinderella Collection by Sephora has launched online and in many stores and along with it the new So This is Love Eau de Parfume.

Sephora dubs this a mesmerizing, dazzling scent inspired by Cinderella herself. I’ve come to associate the scent of Cinderella with Lush’s Cinder Bath Bomb…spicy, cinnamon, with a hint of woodsy smoke in the background. Weird how scent works right? I can’t get that scent out of my head as what Cinderella would possibly smell like. Of course, that would be when she was still living in her evil Stepmother’s house….

What would her scent be when her fairytale came true and she lived happily ever after with her Prince?

Perhaps So This is Love captures that dream?

Nicole Richie Nicole Eau de Parfum Review

Nicole Eau de Parfum

Nicole Richie has come into her own and she’s an absolute style icon as far as I’m concerned. She’s no longer Paris Hilton’s little sidekick and has turned over such a new leaf of maturity.

With her own line of couture under her belt as well as a successful jewelry collection it was only a matter of time that she joined the celebrity fragrance ranks. This Fall, Nicole Richie released her own fragrance entitled, simply, Nicole.

Housed in a gorgeous cut crystal glass bottle with a certain boho chicness that only Nicole could pull off this fragrance is a warm, creamy blend of ambers with fruit and floral notes.

Let’s take a look!

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Sugar Skull Halloween 2012 Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Sugar Skull Halloween 2012 3

Ah you might have heard me whisper the joy of Sugar Skull in your ears before. It’s one of several limited edition fragrances from the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, creator of unique fragrance oils!

Each year the Lab dishes out a slew of hand blended fragrance oils in a variety of complex scents to celebrate Halloween.

Sugar Skull has been in my rotation for many a year and I have several bottles under my belt but I continue to buy it year after year as it seems to have a slight change each year that I enjoy discovering.

Take a look!

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Wembley Fragrance Oil Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Wembley

As you know Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab released a Fraggle inspired collection of fragrance oils recently. Not familiar with the Fraggles? OMG! You’re missing out. YouTube them, promise you’ll love them. They just don’t make children’s entertainment like this anymore.

I was excited to say the least when I heard the Lab was teaming up with the Jim Henson Company to create not only Fraggle blends but also Labyrinth ones. I’m curious if at some point they’ll do a Muppet Collection or even a Dark Crystal one (how awesome would that be? Doctor Bunsen Honeydew would obviously smell amazingballs right?).

I recently reviewed Gobo for you and I thought that Wembley would be the perfect follow up to that review since he is Gobo’s BFF.

P.S. Congrats to my reader Michou. She wrote me today to say she got a job and today’s her first day. She was unemployed for a little bit so it was with great happiness, joy, and relief that I read her e-mail today! I hope you’ll join me in wishing her much success!

Take the jump for my review.
