Bath & Body
Holy Christmas Batman!
I said it before, I’ll say it again, it’s way too bloody early for me to be talking about Holiday and Winter Collections!
I want to just enjoy the Fall season a little while longer! Ow well if you’re feeling a bit Christmas-like this beautiful Fall afternoon you might want to head over to QVC and type in item number A86813 and lay your eyes on this:
Tis Philosophy’s Snowman 3 in 1 Shower Gel! We had the Milk Man, we had the Ice Cream Man, we had the Gingerbread Man…lord knows Philosophy is running out of men to give us! Now they are gifting us with The Snowman!
This is the super-size, 32oz, available exclusively from QVC for $22.49 USD. I personally haven’t seen this little guy anywhere else and it’s possible we may not see him anywhere else for a while!
So if you want him, you’ll have to head over to QVC to nab him!
I’m not sure I’ll purchase him as the reviews I’ve read seem to say he may spell like Philosophy The Gingerbread Man even though his description reads that he’s fresh and frosty!
Hmmm remains to be seen I guess!
We shall see if the Muse gives in to her urges and nabs some Philosophy The Snowman for her very self!
For now you can visit QVC and read the reviews for yourself and come back to tell me what you think!
Want him for yourself?

I’m always so terrible with my fragrance reviews but I couldn’t help but want to test out and review Ralph Lauren Notorious for you this week!
It’s been a while in between my Ralph Lauren purchases and normally I indulge in his “fun” scents like Ralph, Ralph Rocks, Etc….however I took a step way up the ladder of sophication when I tried out Ralph Lauren Notorious for the first time last week! It’s seen been a staple fragrance in my wardrobe for the over a week since using it.
It is an Eau de Parfum which makes the staying power fantastically long wearing while lingering throughout the day and into the night! Two squirts pretty much gets me well into the evening which is especially good considering how my body chemistry sucks up fragrance extremely quick leading me to have to re-touch up throughout the day.
The scent is a very provocative, oriental blend that has traces of fresher notes like Italian Bergamot and Vanilla. It’s sophisticated enough for evening wear but manages to keep a lighter side that’s perfectly lovely for a work day as well. I was slightly frightened of the drydown notes of patchouli however it remains timelessly elegant.
The price is affordable at $45 USD for a 1 oz bottle of Eau de Parfum and the scent is works very well as a day or evening fragrance! All in all Ralph Lauren Notorious definately gets my seal of approval for purchase! Even thought it’s outside my normal, I really liked this one alot and Muse Approve it for purchase!
You can learn more about Notorious by visiting the Ralph Lauren site.
What are your favorite Ralph Lauren fragrances?

You might have read last year how much I loved (and stocked up on) Lush Ghost Shower Gel, well, good news, it’s back for a very limited time so if you missed out last year you can grab it now!
Lush Ghost Shower Gel 8.4 oz $16.95 USD
Witches Ball $5.95 USD

The Great Pumpkin Soap $4.95 USD
Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without a bit of a spicy pumpkin soap to envelope us in the scent of spicy, warm pumpkin!
Lush Spellbound Gift Set $27.95 USD
Lush Spellbound includes three luscious items for your bath! Give it away as a spooky gift or spoil yourself!
I heart Lush so much for creating a fun little selection of treats for Halloween! Embracing the Fall Season and the Halloween Holiday by incorporating fun little items into it’s catalog really makes the Muse an even bigger fan of Lush than she already is!

Lush Ghost Shower Gel Review
How exciting! I just noticed Sephora is now carrying Dylan’s Candy Bar Re-Treat!
I’ve been to Dylan’s a few times as we have one here in the city and it’s truly quite a funky, fun experience! The line includes, obviously, candy, accessories, and bath and body goodies with a candy/foody theme!
The only items that Sephora are carrying are the Bath and Body items but that’s still pretty cool as the line is quite fun and it’s not too badly priced either.
Although I love the idea that Sephora has brought the brand in I am highly doubtful it will remain for long and I picture it ending up 50% off in 6 months to a year. As we know, think Jessica Simpson’s Dessert line, candy and food theme Bath and Body items and perfumes do not do well at Sephora. The only line that has successfully fit into this niche market would be Philosophy with the Three in One Shower Gels that are so popular with the Muse and the masses!
I imagine that Dylan’s Candy Bar Re-Treat is taking the place of Sugar Cosmetics who’s demise is currently happening at Sephora as all of it is marked down 50%!
I suspect we’ll see a few more new brands make an appearance as the Holiday sets in and January closes in. I don’t see a slew of new brands popping up but maybe two or three from now up till January!
Which is good news as it’ll mean more sales for us!
Anyway……more about Dylan’s…..
Dylan’s Candy Bar Re-Treat consists of a body scrubs, lotions, shower gels, and other candy and food scented bath and body treats!
Some of the items popping up on Sephora are:
Dylan’s Candy Bar Re-Treat Coconut Bon Bon Collection Prices Range from $8-$22 USD
Strawberry Licorice Soda Pop Shower Gel $16 USD
Candy Lip Saver Stackable Lip Balm $30 USD
Birthday Cake Batter Candy Butter Cream $22 USD
I personally haven’t tried anything from Dylan’s aside from the candy hehe but now that the bath and body line has hit Sephora you can count the Muse curious! I love really sweet candy, foody scents so this completely appeals to me!
I may check it out!
How about you?
Love candy scents?
Curious about this line?
