If you asked me what my ideal perfume scent would be, I’d probably answer and say something like gummi bears!
Yeah, I’m hardcore when it comes to sweet scents. I really love fruity, sweet candy-like blends but…….I do tend to migrate to unusual ones as well like spicy florals or interesting fruity florals. I’m a Jill of all Trades when it comes to fragrance however I definitely feel most comfortable with something sweet.
A reader wrote to me recently and said, “Muse, I know you’re keen on sweet stuff but have you tried Lush Vanillary?”
Why, yes, I have.
Vanilla is outside my norm to be honest and it’s not something I seek out in my fragrances however with Lush’s name stamped all over it, it’s instantly something I purchased as soon as it released last year.
There’s one thing you should always remember about Lush, THEY KNOW how to create good fragrance.
Contrary to what I might believe, Digipop is not the latest boy band from Korea it’s the latest MAC Collection. Well, doh!
No seriously, doesn’t it sound like some sort of band? Ok, maybe that’s just me.
MAC Digi-Pops Collection made its debut earlier this Summer exclusively at Nordstrom. During pre-booking I was super excited to play with Digi-Pops myself so I headed over to Nordies and promptly became utterly disgusted at the display. Nordstrom, baby, mama loves you but please clean up your act. I was appalled at the condition of the collection. One of the things I was really interested in exploring were the new Digi-Pops Dazzle Lipsticks and they were just so terribly gross that I couldn’t even bear to look at them never mind swatch them. The lipsticks were squashed and smushed down to the core, just really a hot mess.
Needless to say I didn’t bother pre-booking any of it because I couldn’t get a feel for the product in that condition.
Lucky enough MAC has released the Dazzle Lipsticks and they are in, thank god, way better condition than the Nordie’s ones were.
Although poisonous, Snow White was pretty much attracted to sinking her teeth into that crunchy, red apple that her wicked stepmother presented to her. Who could blame her, girlfriend was hungry after walking around that forest all day!
Ahh apples. There’s just something terribly enchanting about a bright, shiny, apple. Speaking of enchanting apples…..Nina Ricci always charms my money right out of my pocket with her whimsical little apple shaped fragrances.
Anyone sniff Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina the newest fragrance in the line?
Ahhh Benefit Magic Ink steps us into the first Fall 2010 release from the brand. Liquid liner junkies rejoice, a new precise liquid liner from your friends at Benefit.
Will you haul it?
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?
