Bath & Body
Ahh Eggnog, a traditional holiday favorite for some. As for me, the idea of drinking beaten eggs, milk, and sweetener, well, it doesn’t really appeal.
But I like the way it smells. It has that whipped sweet vanilla scent that actually makes me into a believer that it could be tasty, sadly, it’s not to my taste.
But hey, I don’t mind smelling like it! Yum!
I dunno how in the mood you are for Apple Pie considering Thanksgiving is far behind us now but if you’re in the mood for a steal and a deal check out the $11 bottle of Philosophy Fresh Baked Apple Pie Shower Gel at Sephora.
It has a sweet, tart crunchy scent of apple laced with hints of cinnamon. It comes across more fruity than foody/bakery to my nose but I love it none the less.
For $11 bucks you can multitask, as always, with it by using it as a Shampoo, Bubble Bath, and Shower Gel. Dontcha just love Philosophy for creating and mastering the all in one formula?
Available now for your stocking stuffer needs at Sephora.
Anyone try the new Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Fragrances yet? I got ’em in the mail yesterday and proceeded to go to down misting myself silly.
My best friend Jai was with me at the time and he just gave me the silent eye raise that translated as, “You are so not doing that.” Hey, that’s part of the fun of trying new fragrances eh?
Wicked Style is a really huge revamp from the original line up. We discussed it in prior posts but it deserves a re-mention here. The girls now have velvet-y bobble-like heads and outfits that adapt various fashion styles from Japan. Baby for example is wearing Kawaii Decora which is a playful style adapted from younger Japanese girls that uses lots of layering and bright or pastel colors and accessories that include furry toys and jewelry.
Looking for a special Holiday scent for anyone? I always have trouble with this one. Scent is such a personal thing and it’s difficult figuring out what someone will and won’t love no matter how much you keep them in the forefront of your mind when purchasing. I know my own senses take over and I begin selecting scents that would appeal to me and not the person I am gifting.
If you happen to be in the market for a softer, feminine floral you might want to check out Twirl by Kate Spade. I told you about it months ago and really it was all about the name for me at the time since Kate Spade is one my fav designers. I own a few of her more whimiscal purses and bags but none of that follows through in her fragrance. Twirl is more about capturing soft floral notes and bottling them up into a garden bouquet.
