I was excited to see that Sephora started carrying the new Comme Des Garcons Play Red Eau de Toilette (not to be mistaken with the original Comme Des Garcons Red fragrance)! I really enjoy unique and obscure brands of perfume especially French ones like Annick Goutal and Commes Des Garcons is steeped in in whimsical Japanese tradition making a unique fragrance that totally pulls me in.
Let’s take a look at Comme Des Garcons Play Red!
My friend Libby was here from London for a few weeks much to my delight. We typically have zero Christmas time together and we end up exchanging gifts via post but this year she surprised me and came to New York for a few weeks. It isn’t quite Christmas but with the decorations and lights and the city preparing for it, well, it felt like Christmas to me.
Considering we never get to see each other around the Holidays we decided we’d go all out and have ourselves a Merry little Christmas early! We skated, we toured the city to look at all the window displays, we saw “the tree”, we went to see the Nutcracker, basically every quintessential New York Christmas tradition was upheld, hell we even had photos taken with Santa.
We exchanged gifts before she left last night for home and one of the gifts she gave me was Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Intense Parfum. I wanted to share it with you because it was extra special.
Take a look!
You may or may not know Lush Forum Fragrances are a traditional Holiday release for Lushies. Typically every year the Lush UK Forum votes on a few of their VERY favorite Lush fragrances to be made into unique, limited edition perfumes! At one time the release was exclusive to the UK which did in fact ship to the US but years past the US forum also got these exclusive fragrances. Snow Fairy, Creamy Candy Melt, Potion…are just some fragrances that have been made into perfume!
But not this year…
This year we got a Lush Live Event where Lush employees suggested gifts and shared fun facts about Lush and even showed us how they made bath bombs which was quite interesting however, the lack of fragrances was terribly disappointing.
Lucky enough the UK has upheld the tradition and released several limited edition fragrances in the UK Kitchen which you can purchase now (they ship worldwide)!
I picked up Mally the Fragrance during the 30% Off on Mally Beauty purchases last week. I’ve wanted to try Mally’s first perfume ever for a long time but QVC was only carrying a duo of the perfume and I was a little scared to indulge.
Some people are a little scared of going into a fragrance purchase blindfolded and unfortunately buying something like Mally the Fragrance online was indeed a blindfolded purchase for me. I can’t say I haven’t purchased fragrances like this before because I have! I’m brave like that or really stupid haha…!
I haven’t yet been burned by doing so though but Mally the Fragrance as kinda no go for me. Not because it smelled horrible but just because it wasn’t what I expected.
Etude House Belle Dress Pretty Look Shower Cologne was recently included in my Memebox EtudeHouse Beauty Box. I must say my first instinct upon seeing it was NOT to smell it. Too many times I’ve been disappointed by Korean brands that create colognes or skincare products that smell like toilet paper or an aging grandmother’s rose floral perfume. Gag!
So yeah, Etude House Belle Dress Pretty Look Shower Cologne almost ended up in the do not want pile.
