If you asked me what my ideal perfume scent would be, I’d probably answer and say something like gummi bears!
Yeah, I’m hardcore when it comes to sweet scents. I really love fruity, sweet candy-like blends but…….I do tend to migrate to unusual ones as well like spicy florals or interesting fruity florals. I’m a Jill of all Trades when it comes to fragrance however I definitely feel most comfortable with something sweet.
A reader wrote to me recently and said, “Muse, I know you’re keen on sweet stuff but have you tried Lush Vanillary?”
Why, yes, I have.
Vanilla is outside my norm to be honest and it’s not something I seek out in my fragrances however with Lush’s name stamped all over it, it’s instantly something I purchased as soon as it released last year.
There’s one thing you should always remember about Lush, THEY KNOW how to create good fragrance.
Although poisonous, Snow White was pretty much attracted to sinking her teeth into that crunchy, red apple that her wicked stepmother presented to her. Who could blame her, girlfriend was hungry after walking around that forest all day!
Ahh apples. There’s just something terribly enchanting about a bright, shiny, apple. Speaking of enchanting apples…..Nina Ricci always charms my money right out of my pocket with her whimsical little apple shaped fragrances.
Anyone sniff Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina the newest fragrance in the line?
After blogging about my favorite fragrance from Annick Goutal, Petie Cherie, a few of you had asked if I could review a few of Annick Goutal’s fragrances. Honestly, I’d love to do this since I’m a hardcore fan but before I do I was curious if you’re a fan?
Wanna Muse it with me?
Are you a fan of Annick Goutal?
Any fond favorites?
Some of my favorites include Quel Amour!, Petie Cherie, and Eau d’Hadrien. I’ve always wanted to love Gardenia Passion and I keep one on my vanity at all times but it always goes so terribly incense-y on me.
One of the things that attracts me to the brand is the uniqueness of each blend, the strong, powerful formula that lingers all day with a simple spritz, plus how special each fragrance is and how it evokes a certain feeling or memory.
I really like unique, obscure fragrances that aren’t well known, are different, or just plain unique and Annick fits that bill perfectly. It’s truly fine French fragrance at its best.
How about you?
If not Annick Goutal what sort of unique or obscure fragrances do you enjoy?

I’d take a Dark Kiss if it was Eric Northman or Edward Cullen delivering it! If I can’t have either of them doing the dark kissing perhaps, maybe, I could settle on the new Bath and Body Works Dark Kiss Collection.
Granted, it’s not Eric or Edward, but maybe it could be a close second….
