Bath & Body Works Forever Red Vanilla Rum Review

Bath Body Works Forever Red Vanilla Rum

Bath & Body Works Forever Red Vanilla Rum Eau de Parfum arrives just in time for Holiday 2013 gifting. I do believe the Bath & Body Works Forever Red Collection is possibly one of the better fragrances the brand has released in recent years.

Mind you, I’m not terribly keen on it myself but there isn’t any denying it is unique especially in the world of repetitive Bath & Body Works fragrances. Plus it is affordable. It’s quite a complex fragrance with an excellent throw and wear time so at this price there is something to be said about this collection.

Upon launching Forever Red Vanilla Rum I had some reservations because I didn’t really like the original Forever Red.

Take a look!


Bath & Body Works Velvet Sugar New Fragrance

Bath Body Works Velvet Sugar

Bath & Body Works is getting fancy with the fragrance bottles lately point in case the new Bath & Body Works Velvet Sugar Eau De Parfum. How very Victoria’s Secret of them with this bottle (the brands are sisters anyway so I’m happy some of VS’s charm is rubbing off on BBW).

It’s been a while since Bath & Body Works captured my eye with fragrances because their scents are very, very, very repetitive. I love that they provide so much variety and launch so many collections a year. But I’d love it if they just did three or four big fragrance launches a year that are completely unique versus ten to twelve that are exactly the same…!

But Velvet Sugar sounds interesting enough now to smell it!

Yves Rocher Vanilla Eau de Toilette Review

Yves Rocher Vanilla Eau de Toilette

I should up my review of Yves Rocher Vanilla Eau de Toilette by saying I’m not a vanilla fan girl. I sister loves the note and many of her fragrances her vanilla based but me…I dunno, I’m not really into it. Put it into a sugar cookie scented fragrance mist or some sort of vanilla cake perfume and I’d be on it but just a single note of vanilla? Naa…just not into it.

But Yves Rocher Vanilla Eau de Toilette can easily convert anyone plus did I mention it is merely six dollars?


Philosophy Loveswept Fragrance for Spring 2014

Philosophy Loveswept Fragrance

Look out Falling in Love you’ll have some competition for Spring 2014 as the new Philosophy Loveswept fragrance sweeps onto shelves in time for Valentine’s Day.

I think Falling in Love and Grace were two of my first Philosophy fragrances and I spent a good deal of time telling myself (and convincing myself) that I loved both when in fact I really didn’t. Especially Grace which everyone raves about but I simply can’t understand the love for….!

However, I’ll keep hope alive that this new Philosophy Loveswept will finally be the Philosophy perfume I fall for.
