Estee Lauder Pleasures Jasmine Violet Splash Review

Estee+Lauder+Pleasures+Jasmine+Violet+Splash+4

If you’re a big fan of the Estee Lauder Pleasure line you’ll be excited to learn that this Spring they have released three brand new variations of the line in a brand new formula!

Estee Lauder Pleasures Splash is available in three new scents with a brand new lighter formula to wear all over your body for a refreshing burst of pretty scent, perfect for Spring wear! The sheer, refreshing splashes are available in three unique blends for $52 USD each in 8.2oz size (whoa big!). The size of the bottle is impressing as heck as I recently tried out Jasmine Violet and was shocked at the huge size! What was also particularly a surprise was how well the scent lasted and lingered for a body splash. I wore mine most of this week from morning till evening without touch up in between and it lasted all day with a pleasant, soft floral throw.

Estee Lauder Pleasures Jasmine Violet Splash is a soft floral that blends fresh violet with notes of jasmine. At first sniff I thought it smelled somewhat like orchid but after it settles you’ll be able to get a dominant note of violet with touches cool cucumber and a certain fresh greenness. Notes also include carnation and tuberose. I’m big on florals but genuinely liked this.

Estee+Lauder+Pleasures+Jasmine+Violet+Splash+3

It’s large size and nice linger have tempted me to head to the counter to try out the other scents available in the line which are Sandalwood Amber and Baie Rose Peony.

If you’re looking for a simple, refreshing, light scent for the Spring/Summer I highly suggest trying out the new Estee Lauder Pleasures Splash. Quite an interesting little collection for the warmer weather ahead especially if you’re a big lover of floral blends.

Flower by Kenzo Spring Fragrance


Flower by Kenzo is taken up a notch this Spring with a new limited edition fragrance!

Flower by Kenzo Spring Fragrance brings in the change of season with a burst of lively mandarin and ginger notes with a refreshing bright touch of lychee for a beautiful Spring scent.

With a chic, slim line, frosted bottle with a pretty poppy swaying in a cool Spring breeze this fragrance celebrates the return of life with a warmer season.

Normally the Flower line is a tiny bit too strong for this Muse but count me curious to a Spring LE as maybe it’s light and soft like the season!

Available from Kenzo now!

If you’re looking for a perfectly airy, fresh floral blend that’s light and cheerful for Spring the Muse highly recommends trying out Kenzo Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk. This fragrance is part of a three piece collection inspired by the beautiful flowers of Japan. Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk is soft floral blend with hints of a fruity dominate base. If you’re not partial to floral perfumes this would be one to try as it’s fruity base softens the floral and morphs it into a very crisp, light Spring scent that’s sure to please. Kenzo describes it as a silk flower that flutters gently in the breeze and indeed that’s a good description as it has an element of airiness as one would experience when the cool wind of Spring is blowing and only the barest hint of floral can be caught and sniffed on the breeze. The sweet fruity notes keep the floral fresh and clean making the fragrance incredibly easy and flattering to wear!

Although it’s an Eau de Toilette it manages to linger nicely and give off a soft throw that’s very pleasant and quite long wearing. If you like softer blends that smell clean and light with hints of both floral and fruit and a bit of peony this would be something you’d love.

Kenzo+Eau+de+Fleur+de+Soie+Silk+Eau+de+Toilette+9

Also released for Spring are Eau de Fleur de Magnolia and Eau de Fleur de the Tea. All three fragrances are available for a very limited time from Kenzo so if you’re wanting to spice up your Spring wardrobe with a brand new scent these are sure to please.

Kenzo Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk is available now from Kenzo and is Muse Approved for purchase. It’s an incredibly beautiful scent to shake off the long Winter and get you in the mood for Spring!

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo Review

If by some chance you’re looking to wash that man right out of your hair and everything else with it, that would mean it’s about time you tried out Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo.

Lush+Antiphilitron+Shampoo+4

Hello, my name is the Muse and my hair has been silicon free for years now.

Ahhh the joy of living life with silicon free hair. It’s like having a good hair day every single day! Lush Shampoo and Conditioners are silicon free which means that hair is not weighted down with tons of yucky additives. Additives which give you bad hair days, frizzy hair, flat hair, oily hair and just general hair woe. Although on occasion my hair does crave a little silicon I try to use silicon based products in moderation.

Lush+Antiphilitron+Shampoo+1

Lush+Antiphilitron+Shampoo+2
The moral of my story is if your hair is not feeling it’s cleanest and you’re wanting to detox, I’m highly suggesting you grab yourself a big bottle of Lush Antiphilitron and call it a day. You’ll be happy you did!

What is it?

Think of Antiphilitron as a bottle of detox for your locks. It rinses your hair clean of oil, buildup, silicons, and more! What it leaves behind is pure joy! Your hair will feel lighter with a single use, more manageable with less frizz (if you suffer from frizz that is). If you have oily hair you’ll be all the more excited as this works amazingly well on oily scalps to create pure hair bliss! The formula is lemon based which makes hair shiny as well!

Now my hair is a bit on the dry side so I use this once or twice a week to detox my tresses. I use Lush King of Mods and although it doesn’t build up in my hair it does leave my hair feeling a bit oily plus during the week I’ll occasionally reach for my Skindazzles custom conditioner which is loaded with silicons. To rinse all this out I simply use Antiphilitron once or twice a week for a glowing head of hair! Loves it!

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo wasn’t available for a really long time as it was discontinued but it was brought back recently with Retro Lush! Who knows how long it’ll last but I sure hope they keep it around for a while as it’s simply awesome!

Who might love it?

  • Anyone with oily hair!
  • Those who want squeaky clean hair.
  • Anyone who’s hair is loaded down with build up from product use such as gel, hairspray, silicon shampoo, and conditioner.
  • Anyone who wants picture perfect hair everyday single day!

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo is simply amazing stuff and comes with my highest Muse Approval for purchase! I heart this stuff in a big way! Pick it up! It’s a must have!
