Musings of the Day: Annick Goutal, Unique and Different!

Annick Goutal

After blogging about my favorite fragrance from Annick Goutal, Petie Cherie, a few of you had asked if I could review a few of Annick Goutal’s fragrances. Honestly, I’d love to do this since I’m a hardcore fan but before I do I was curious if you’re a fan?

Wanna Muse it with me?

Are you a fan of Annick Goutal?

Any fond favorites?

Some of my favorites include Quel Amour!, Petie Cherie, and Eau d’Hadrien. I’ve always wanted to love Gardenia Passion and I keep one on my vanity at all times but it always goes so terribly incense-y on me.

One of the things that attracts me to the brand is the uniqueness of each blend, the strong, powerful formula that lingers all day with a simple spritz, plus how special each fragrance is and how it evokes a certain feeling or memory.

I really like unique, obscure fragrances that aren’t well known, are different, or just plain unique and Annick fits that bill perfectly. It’s truly fine French fragrance at its best.

How about you?

If not Annick Goutal what sort of unique or obscure fragrances do you enjoy?

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment Review

I’d love if I had more time to head to the spa for a facial. Ideally I’d love to just sit back and relax at least twice a month but it never happens. I always feel so pressed for time and sitting back for a facial rarely makes it into my day to day schedule.

I’m lucky enough to have very good skin without any problems however dullness is something I suffer from a fair bit. My skin is very lackluster and in need of a boast most days of its life. One such boast would be a proper exfoliation as this seems to revive and kick start my skin. Dullness is fairly common for those with dry skin and my own fits right into the groove.

Taking my dullness and my lack of time for a facial into consideration I invested nearly $100 on the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment in hopes it would not only cure my dull skin but also keep me from having to rearrange my schedule for facials.

It Must Be in the Water, Puberty Coming Earlier

Grown Up

Several weeks ago we Muse’d about how old we were when we first started using makeup.

I’m NOT that old but I have to say I feel positively ancient when I see girl’s that are around 10 years old at Sephora purchasing makeup or at the movie theater by themselves squealing when Taylor pops up on screen without a shirt (mind you I’m squealing with them but I’m of an age to appreciate that kinda body, are they?) or even with their own iPhones, seriously? Who pays that bloody bill?

No shame in my game, when I was 10 I was still playing with Barbie’s and crying for my mommy.

A recent study shows that girls within the US are hitting puberty at early ages. So all that technology, makeup, and hot celebs aren’t the only thing that make little girl’s older, it’s also their bodies that are displaying the signs of aging as well!
