Latest Obsession: Carol’s Daughter Jamaican Punch

Meet my latest obsession:
Picture+135

I was wandering around the Sephora at Herald’s Square on Sunday trying to find some Stocking Stuffers for my sister and came across the Carol’s Daughter display. I’ve passed this display up more times than I can count on two hands but for some reason or another that day a bottle of “Almond Cookie” caught my eye!

Now the first thing to enter my mind when I seen Almond Cookie was Lush’s Snowcake! I was thinking a bit of cherry with maybe a hint of marzipan icing. Mmm…dead wrong. Carol’s Daughter Almond Cookie Eau de Toilette smells heinous to say the least. I don’t get much of a “bakery scent” to this but just musk and musk and more musk! It’s quite strong and very overpowering. I guess the sandalwood overpowers the sweetness of the cookie and vanilla I’m not entirely sure but I gagged when I took a sniff!

Which leads me to say that I almost walked away but another item caught my eye and I decided to tortue myself a bit more with Carol’s Daughter.

I very cautiously opened a bottle of Jamaican Punch, took a sniff, and soon after fell deeply in love.

Mmmm now this is perfection. It’s quite fruity with a faint underlay of sandalwood and bayberry. It has all sorts of yummie fruits like peach, banana, orange, apple, and raspberry!

It’s tropical yet sweet and fruity and did I mention it lingers like crazy!

My body chemistry doesn’t work well with Eau de Toilette and normally my skin just sucks it up and the linger, throw, and scent don’t last at all. Basically within 30 minutes or less you can barely tell that I squirted myself!

However, two quick squirts with Jamaican Punch had me smelling yummie from 2 in the afternoon all the way to 11:45 that evening when I hopped into the shower!

This has amazing throw and lingering power and well worth the $25 I shelled out for the 2 oz bottle!

I’m now utterly obsessed with this gorgeous scent! I nabbed the shower gel and the Eau de Toilette and I’m lemming everything else in the line!

I highly recommend going into Sephora to sniff it for yourself! Mmmm tropics in the winter! Pure perfection!

Sephora’s Philosophy Bubbly 3 in 1 Shower Gel Version

Remember my post about Philosophy Bubbly? It wasn’t so longer ago but if you’re feeling forgettable on a Monday morning (and who can blame you in this cold) click here for a refresher!

Well Sephora’s jumped on the bandwagon and they got a new box, the same price tag, and slapped a new name on the packaging and called it their very own and only available from them too mind you (but we already know it’s available at QVC too).

Sephora’s “version” of Bubbly comes in a box that reads “Congratulations” and is the same whopping 24oz size and the cost is pretty much the same too at $20!

It’s a perfect gift really so no matter if you buy it from Sephora or QVC it all smells the same and does the same thing!

Go on..indulge…you know you want too!
