Carol’s Daughter Pearls Gift Set Limited Edition Review

Carol’s Daughter has been known to capture my heart a time or two with their incredibly unique fragrances. So the case may be with the brand new fragrance introduced from Carol’s Daughter.

Carol’s Daughter Pearls is one of the best scents to date I’ve tried from the collection. According to Lisa Price she loves creating fragrances that are unique and unforgettable and truly that’s something she does well. Pearls is a soft blend of lemon verbena with a beautiful finish of apricot and peach. The blend has a complex way of morphing from a fruity scent to a warm sugary blend to a soft floral with hints of jasmine, rose, and violet and plenty of warm vanilla and caramel too! It quite reminds me of Fresh Lemon Sugar but far more complex with it’s various notes. The scent is very warm, sweet yet nothing too crazy, and very feminine and flirty. I love the scent of lemons in my perfume and this is a heavy note of lemon with a nice underlay of warm vanilla, sugar, and hints of caramel which slowly morphs into a fine floral. It’s quite interesting, very unique, and truly a special fragrance. Even though the fragrance is an EDT it still manages to have great throw and lingers quite strongly as most Carol’s Daughter fragrances do.

I’m reviewing Carol’s Daughter Pearls today since Mother’s Day is right around the corner and there is a very special limited edition collection available that’s a steal, a deal, and something that will make your mum (or you…hey we all need spoiling!) very happy.

Available for a very limited time is the Carol’s Daughter Limited Edition Pearls Gift Set for $49.50 which includes a Carol’s Daughter Pearls Eau de Toilette 2.5 oz and a Carol’s Daughter Pearls Body Creme 1oz. The two items come housed in a gorgeous little keepsake jewelry box with a dome lid and a little gold clasp. I still have the creme and perfume stowed away in it but you can remove them and use the box to stash away your jewelry or small treasures as it’s really a nice, sturdy keepsake box.

Carol’s Daughter Pearls Fragrance is actually $45 USD so you can spend a few dollars more and get the gift set with the body lotion for a better deal. It also ships free when purchased from Carol’s Daughter directly. Sephora also has it in store and in stock.

Carol’s Daughter Pearls is very Muse Approved for purchase. Do head to your local Sephora to check out, I’m positive you’ll fall in love with it as much as I did. It’s simply a gorgeous scent. It makes a rather great gift for Mother’s Day but the Muse can understand if you want to keep it all to yourself!

Delish Bakery Steals and Deals @ Bath and Body Works

Steal

If you’re ordering something for your mum from Bath and Body Works (go now! There’s still time to get it in time for Mother’s Day!) you can slap these little guys into your cart too for a sweet bathing experience.

There are two Delish Bath Cupcakes on sale at Bath and Body Works for $6 each. You can choose from (or choose both) Carrot Cake or Sweetie Pie. Each is housed in a cute little gift box and tied with a ribbon, perfect for giving to mum (I’d keep it for myself though…eep how rotten of me! I can justify that by saying my mum is not a bath person anyway!).

If you’re ordering from BBW anyway it’s well worth tossing ‘em in your cart to tide over your shipping to $65 to take advantage of the free shipping. I’ve tried them before and they are quite delightful! Nice price, killer pressie!

Snag ‘em by clicking here or here.

Happy Hauling!

The Muse has a certain dislike for Lush when they discontinue her very favorite products! Grrrr why Lush why!? Why must you cease to produce my favorite bath goodies? Why must it all come to end? Why? Why!

Thankfully Lush came up with a somewhat agreeable solution to the Muse’s mourning by introducing the Retro Lush line. This is where Lush “brings back” many old favorites that die hard fans, like the Muse, have been a missing! Thank the gods that they brought back Back for Breakfast Shower Gel because honestly the Muse couldn’t be held responsible if she ran out again!

The Muse remembers it well. She remembers exactly the time that Lush Back for Breakfast bit the big one. It was after Thanksgiving and the Muse had just discovered the joys of Lush one day when it popped up in her Amazon recommendations list, this was many years ago mind you. The Muse never got to experience the joys of Back for Breakfast herself but only second hand as it had been diced from the line up less than a month before the Muse’s discovery of the Lush religion.

However, less than a week later the Muse had scored a large bottle of Back for Breakfast from a Lush forum member in the UK who kindly swapped the bottle. Ever after that the Muse was possessed, obsessed, and mad enough to stalk Back for Breakfast down! By the end of that year (which wasn’t far off) she had gathered together at least 10 bottles of Back for Breakfast to tide her over with the hopes that this would last her for the next 10 years. Sadly, it didn’t!

On the verge of throwing herself off the nearest building the Muse pacified her love for Back of Breakfast and settled on Lush Happy Hippie, not nearly as good but the best one could do.

Why all this insanity for a simple shower gel?

Because it’s just so lovely!

With fresh grapefruit, lemon, and lime juices this shower gel was both tart, fruity, and sweet. It made the Muse’s hair sing in delight and made her shower experience a wonderful morning wake up call! Lush promises with use it’ll wake you up in the AM like no other shower gel and truth be told it does indeed wake up a girl and get her revved for the day ahead. That citrus cocktail of grapefruit, lemons, and limes really makes the Muse sing in the shower. It keeps her hair rather squeaky clean and makes it smell all fruity and fresh like too! Multitask, Multitask! Hair and body loves it!

I can’t begin to tell you how happy I was that Lush finally brought it back and now one can only hope it sticks around for a while otherwise the Muse may need to buy enough to last her for 50 years!

Lush Back for Breakfast Shower Gel, unquestionably Muse Approved for purchase! Get it! You need it, the Muse says so!

Yay or Nay: Harajuku Lovers Fragrance

yayornay

By now you probably tried out the Harajuku Lovers Fragrance Collection by either spritzing down in store, getting a sample or two somewhere, or purchasing some for your very self!

Picture+256

Today’s Yay or Nay is all about Harajuku Lovers Fragrance! Did you love ‘em? Are Harajuku Lovers Fragrance a yay or a nay for you?

Share it with me and click below for my reply!

The Muse was pretty in love with the entire line up of Harajuku Lovers Fragrance so it’s a solid yay for me. I read a few lame-o reviews and was feeling kinda shocked since I really enjoyed the scents, packaging, and general feel of the product. I thought all the blends were really unique and fun plus the packaging was too cutes! So def a yay for me! I loved Harajuku Lovers Fragrance!

How about you?

Yay?

Nay?
