Mark Buenos Aires Vibe Eau de Toilette Spray for Summer 2015

Mark Buenos Aires Vibe Eau de Toilette Spray

Mark Buenos Aires Vibe Eau de Toilette Spray ($24) hits the streets for Summer 2015 with a mix of passionfruit, romantic mauve violet, and a warm sensual musk to create a fruity, floral infusion!

I’ve been known to live an Avon fragrance or two in my life (Haiku!) so I never write Avon’s fragrances off! Wondering if Buenos Aires might be worth my time!

Available now at www.avon.com

P.S. Happy Monday aka Tuesday! I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day! Ready to start the week? I THINK I am :)

In other news, Cary Fukunaga pulled out of the Stephen King It remake! Filming was supposed to start next week. Not cool, if this heads to the back burner I’ll be quite pissy! As I was looking forward to an It remake! Not that anyone can replace Tim Curry as Pennywise though!

Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mist Review

Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mists

I am currently obsessed with Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mist ($19.99) because it brings me back to the 90’s when I used to hoard Salon Selectives Air It Out Odor Neutralizer. I truly believe my first beauty hoarding experience started with that hair refresher. And I was right to hoard it too by the very way because it was discontinued and my heart nearly broke. It had this really pretty fresh scent and made my hair so lovely!

Recently I ran across Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mist and instantly I had to see if it would recreate the experience I had with Salon Selectives.

Bath & Body Works Tahiti Island Dream Eau de Parfum Review

Bath & Body Works Tahiti Island Dream

Bath & Body Works Tahiti Island Dream Eau de Parfum is a new Summer 2015 fragrance that launched with the Bath & Body Works Tahiti Island Dream Collection. It’s unclear to me at the moment whether Bath & Body Works Tahiti Island Dream Eau de Parfum is limited edition or if it will remain a permanent part of the Bath & Body Works Perfume Collection. I imagine it’ll be permanent but unfortunately, I’m a little iffy about that.

I applaud Bath & Body Works for introducing more perfumes lately. Recently, they did five 1 oz perfume blends for their Hawaii Collection, all of which I hauled, which I thought was an excellent addition to the release. Why? Because no matter how many times they tell me they reformulated their fragrance mist it still has poor sillage. And yes, I know, everyone tells me, “LAYER!” but I’m not a fan of Bath & Body Works Body Lotion, it’s sticky, so I don’t think it’s so unrealistic to want a fragrance mist which actually has a little bit of saying power. That’s why I do prefer their perfumes as they do have a better linger and a stronger throw for me. Honestly, I wish they had released a few of the Southern Comfort fragrances in a perfume as I’d buy them!

So indeed, right now I’m happy with the way things are going at Bath & Body Works Perfume headquarters. Keep launching the perfumes and I’ll keep buying ’em!

Gorilla Perfumes Volume 3 Collection

Gorilla Perfumes Volume 3 Collection

Gorilla perfume fan? Well, Lush has listed 7 new Gorilla fragrances in a new permanent collection.

Lush has always dabbled in perfume particularly with their other company (that unfortunately closed shopped), B Never. Around 2009-2010 Lush introduced their new line of fragrances titled simply Gorilla. The Gorilla line included several new fragrances and later on Lush rebranded old favorites like Karma and included them in the Gorilla Collection. Soon, much to my delight, they started to also include B Never fragrances in the Gorilla permanent collection (although I still have hopes at some point they will bring back B Never’s Keep it Fluffy perfume!).

Gorilla is exciting for me because I truly believe Lush knows how to create incredible fragrances. Simon, son of Mark Constantine, one of Lush’s co-founders, is responsible for some of the greatest Lush perfumes I own (and likely the creator of the fragrances of some of your favorite bath products too!). Like his dad, he has an incredible nose for fragrance and creates some truly unique scents.

If you’re a lover of niche fragrances I’m sure you’ll be as excited as I am about these new fragrances.

Take a look!
