Now Baby is exactly what you’d come to expect from a scent named so. She’s smells exactly like a baby! Soft, powder fresh, and sweet!
One bat of her lashes and Baby has all the boys in the palm of her hand! Pretty in pink, Baby steps out in a short baby doll dress and sweet Mary Janes. Her scent is a powdery floral with notes of white rose, orange flower, and white musk.
Don’t get confused by her notes of white rose, orange flower, and musk because honestly she’s a purely powder scent and holds no notes of floral for me. Although the sound of a powder fresh scent may be slightly off putting for some I think it’s a rather fresh, clean smell that anyone can appreciate. Baby also happens to linger quite strongly for such a soft smell! She sweet and she’s clean and she holds that special flirty fun feel that all the Harajuku Lovers Fragrances have in common!
The Muse liked this one alot! Although Music and G remains her favorite Baby falls closely behind! By the way I actually discovered a “baby” who loves Love! Meet Mylee who’s mum runs Wake Up to Makeup! Mylee obviously thinks Love is super! Who thinks we should just give Mylee the coffret because she’s just so bloody cute!
They say all we need is love! Personally the Muse thinks all we need is more John Lennon but hey who am I to complain?
In the case of Harajuku Lovers Fragrances it’s possible that Love may be all you need! Love like her name is sweet, romantic and sensual.
Sweet, Caring, and Free Spirited, Love is always off in her own little world. Stepping out in a cute, striped mini dress and fashionable red kicks, Love wears her heart on her sleeve, or rather in her hair! Her scent is reminiscent of a floral bouquet, with notes of pink pomelo rose and creamy vanilla orchid.
Love starts out with hints of peach but has a slow build up of peony, rose, and jasmine to create a floral dry down that’s laden with hints of beautiful vanilla. When compared with her sisters, she happens to be on the softer side of the scents and carries a beautiful soft finish!
If you like your blends romantic and sensual with hints of soft florals Love is probably all you need! The Muse thought love was a rather beautiful blend of flowers with a tiny hint of sweet peach and a hard base of vanilla that made the blend beautiful for both day and evening! As with all the Harajuku Girls fragrances, Love does contain a good dose of fun!
To celebrate the Muse’s latest contest to win a Harajuku Girls Solid Perfume Coffret she thought she’d do a week in review of each Harajuku Fragrance!
I’ve already reviewed these prior but that was by nose alone considering that I had only tried out ‘Lil Angel and reviewed the other based on scent cards! I’ve since gotten the chance to test this out by spraying, smelling, and testing them out on myself so I can give a better more detail review of each blend! Yay! Each Harajuku Girl fragrance is unique and interesting to say the least! I’m starting my review today with the Harajuku Girls Fragrance Music.
Always looking to make someone laugh, charismatic Music has no qualms telling it like it is! Stylin’ in a smocked sailor outfit and black lace-up boxing boots, Music marches to the beat of her own drum! Her scent is fruity floral with notes of pear, sweet pea, and sleek wood!
Music’s fruity base of pear dominates her fragrance but the combination of sweet pea creates a very special, unique floral blend that’s fun and lively! Although all five scents are something I savored and enjoyed I must say that I lean towards Music as topping my favorite list as she’s definitely different to say the least. Music manages to combine fun and sexy thanks to the slight woodsy vanilla note that comes out after dry down. The scent manages to last all day with 2-3 sprays which is pretty brilliant when taking into consideration these are EDT’s! Music should appeal to those who like a fresh, fruity, flirty blend.
The Muse likes this one because although it has touches of floral yet it still manages to remain sweet and the Muse is all about sweet blends! Music is a favorite for this Muse and says to give it a shot for yourself! It’s Muse Approved for purchase!

The Muse doesn’t drink. A majority of most alcoholic beverages kinda taste like nail polish remover to her so she avoids liquor like the plague plus the Muse drunk is always a rather silly sight and we all know the Muse is SO not silly! Seriously now! So indeed she does avoid alcohol like the plague and sticks to her drink of choice, tea.
What’s that? How do I know what nail polish remover tastes like anyway? Well duh! Obviously all cosmetic junkies know what it taste like! Stop asking dumb questions.
On the bright side the Muse does fancy an occasionally flute of bubbly and berries. Champagne and Strawberries were meant for each other.
You know last year the Muse happened to fall in love with Philosophy Bubbly Three in One Shower Gel and although it didn’t contain the berry it sure did bring the Bubbly! Sparkling, crisp, and beautiful were simply some of the things that were pure perfection about Philosophy Bubbly.
Philosophy decided to step up it’s game this year and created the next best thing to Bubbly….How about Philosophy Berry Bubbly! The Muse thinks nothing goes better than Strawberries and Champagne so how about Philosophy Berries and Bubbly…Mmmmmmmm sounds like a master plan to this Muse!
Although I love Philosophy Bubbly with a passion I must say that a little something extra special is contained inside Philosophy Berry Bubbly and it tops off an already great recipe and makes it pure perfection.
Philosophy Berry Bubbly starts with a fresh, sparkling, effervescent citrus base which tickles the nose. This is quickly followed up by the faint scent of sweet strawberry which combines beautifully with the sparkle of citrus to create a true to life Champagne and Strawberry scent that’s pure and fresh! Philosophy deserves a major award for creating a perfectly sparkling experience with Berry Bubbly!
Please don’t think that the scent is reminiscent of any blend of champagne and strawberry you’ve tried before because it’s completely different and unique! It’s has a certain sweetness with a full on citrus body that can simply be called sparkling! Philosophy managed to capture the “bubbly” effervescent of champagne and put it in a bottle!
Philosophy Berry Bubbly can be used in your shower, in your bath tub, or wash your hair with it! It’s three in one you see!
The Muse nabbed her bottle of Philosophy Berry Bubbly from QVC and believes as of now it’s exclusive to them however like last year I’m pretty sure you’ll see it pop up on Sephora, just renamed and repackaged!
If you can’t wait and absolutely need your dose of bubbly and berries head over to QVC and punch in Item Number A86879! This one is Muse Approved for you and for gifts! QVC has a special deal at the moment which allows you to purchase one Berry Bubbly for $18.24 USD and each additional bottle for $15.24 USD. I ordered 6 bottles…two for me and the rest for gifts as these are super nice for gift giving and the price can’t be beat! I highly suggest nabbing these before they run out and have a wait list!
Philosophy Berry Bubbly will be making a guest starring appearance under the Muse’s tree this year!
The Muse’s entourage of English friends have always tried to convert her to the glories of the chocolate orange but the Muse safely steers clear of anything that combines chocolate with fruit….yak…..no likey. Some things go together well but the Muse thinks chocolate and fruit are NOT a marriage most divine.
In the case of the glorious Orange Chocolate the Muse refuses to partake and believes that Terry is actually an alias for the devil because the only place an orange chocolate could come from would be hell.
All yur chocolate oranges belongz to me! *insert evil laugh here* Source
Even though the Muse hates Orange Chocolate she knew she must put away her keen dislike for the evil that be and test out the new Lush Chocolate Santa Bath Bomb. So the Muse struck up some Captain Jack and decided to climb into her bath tub!
No, not this kind either (although my bath tub is always welcome to the likes of this Captain Jack)
The Muse needed liquid courage to face a bath tub full of Chocolate Orange and since she doesn’t drink the only other option was vintage Billy.
Turns out Lush Chocolate Santa was a rather relaxing, calming experience and although eating chocolate oranges is off this Muse’s list she actually won’t mind purchasing a few Lush Chocolate Santas to fill her bath with! Although Chocolate Santa doesn’t have a very strong, lingering smell like many Lush Bath Bombs I still managed to enjoy my bath with him and recommend grabbing a few for stocking stuffers and of course to spoil yourself with!
I’m not going to go into great detail how a Bath Bomb works since I’ve done so before but just in case anyone doesn’t know here’s a quickie How To from the friendly folks at Lush:
Now as I mentioned Chocolate Santa doesn’t have a very strong smell which could account for why I liked him so much. He smells like a sparkling mimosa with tiny bits of chocolate thrown in and a faint, soft underlay of vanilla. He fizzes happily away as you bath, softening your water and skin while leaving your hair and body softly scented with a citrus chocolate blend that’s very pleasant.
Lush Chocolate Santa sizzling away happily in the Muse’s bath tub! (Apologies the lighting was really low in my bathroom when I recorded)
Lush Chocolate Santa is shaped, yes you guessed it, like that rolly polly, pink cheeked guy we all know and love, Santa!! Lush was really intricate about the details on this bomb as their Chocolate Santa has his famous suit, boots, belt, and bag of treats for good little Muses!
Lush Chocolate Santa is available for a very limited time so best snatch one up before he’s gone for good! I’m actually headed over to Lush UK right now to order 20 of these little guys to stash away in friends and family member’s stockings and of course a few more for myself as it turns out Lush Chocolate Santa isn’t evil like Terry’s Chocolate Orange! Lush Chocolate Santa is available now for $6.95 USD! Click to grab yours!
