Meanwhile in the World of Donna Karen…..!

Well, I did a bad thing or maybe it was a good one. Depends how you look at it. Let’s start this tale with a little back story…! Every single year, like clockwork, when my sister’s birthday rolls around I get her one big gift and with that gift I also get her the biggest bottle of Donna Karen Cashmere Mist Perfume I can find. That would be the 6.7 oz bottle that Macy’s carries. Yes, 6.7 oz of fragrance that I almost convinced my sister bathes in because she seriously has very little left when I purchase it for her again for her next birthday. She’s either drinking it from the bottle, bathing in it, or she’s misting herself madly.

We all have a signature scent (I probably have too many of them). That one scent that evokes strong emotions in us, that scent that makes us happy, that scent that gives us confidence, that scent that makes us feel comforted…! We all just have that one fragrance that hits all the marks. For my sister, that would be Cashmere Mist.

Now, I’ve obviously caught the bug because when I started buying it for her many, many, many years ago I never really liked it. You see, my sister and I have a big age gap between us. One would never know this because we are the bestest friends and we act like children but she’s actually 12 years older than I am. That being said, when I started buying it for her my taste in perfume was all cotton candy gummy bear Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea….! I’ll be honest, when it comes to gourmands, my taste hasn’t changed much. I always felt like Cashmere Mist was a very mature scent but the last five or so years I have become a covert to the religion of Cashmere Mist and I adore it. I’m either an old lady or this stuff just smells incredible and I never noticed. It really is such a smooth, gorgeous, comfy blanket sitting by the fire scent. It’s not intrusive, it smells clean and sophisticated, truly a gorgeous fragrance! I feel bad I missed out on enjoying it for many years because my nose wasn’t picking up on what my sister was loving about it.

Fast forward to present day and every time the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale pops up I look forward to what they have on offer in the world of Donna Karen Cashmere. They never fail to disappoint as they do some great bundles. This year, I did a bad thing…….I indulged in the massive Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Jumbo Body Lotion (It also comes with a Travel Size Eau de Parfum). It’s $116 for a 32 oz bottle and I do not regret it at all. I always have small versions of this that I get as GWPs or sometimes it comes bundled with a perfume but I run through it like water. I don’t really like body lotions but this stuff is ridiculously good. It absorbs easily, isn’t sticky or tacky, and it smells amazing. I can literally use this without following up with the perfume and people will compliment how I smell. It just smells so damn good and it pairs so beautifully with the fragrance. So yeah, no regrets and I totally recommend grabbing one if you love the scent! It’s a typical Nordstrom Anniversary sale offering and I never purchased it before this but I know I’ll def do it again next year now that I have! This will last me ages!

Another favorite pick I grabbed? Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant & Antiperspirant and it’s bundled! Three full-sizes for $66 during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! People, you know I’d suffered the pits of Mordor for my Vanilla Secret Deodorant but Cashmere Mist Deo comes a close second. Again, I fell in love with this because it was included in a GWP but every year Nordy’s offers it in a three pack and I snatch up two of them to get me through the year. It keeps me dry but also, I swear if I’m wearing this and it’s a little warm out I smell like I applied the perfume even if I didn’t! If you love Cashmere Mist don’t hesitate grabbing these up! They are fab!.

    I guess I’m like you in that I didn’t understand the hype for this fragrance until about two years ago. The deodorant is so good. I don’t think I’m going to pick up either set tomorrow, though.

    I also have a sibling who is quite a bit older (13 years apart).

      ME EITHER! I always thought it was an old lady scent but it isn’t it’s adorable! The deo really is awesome ;-D Oh my gosh cool 🙂 You’d never we had such a large age gap as we act like kids together 😀

    I wore it as my signature fragrance for several years but I got bored with it. I did love the deo/anti-perspirant then too but I only use a crystal deodorant now. I still have a perfume bottle left and I’m sure I will use it again sometime.

    Thanks for this review! I just recently purchased my first Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant and after reading this post I am really looking forward to using it. I won’t jump on the Nordstrom’s deal since I am fairly stocked on supplies right now.

    However, I have never tried her Cashmere Mist perfume but I am going to find a way to sample it, since I do love “old lady” scents like Guerlain’s Shalimar and L’Heure Bleue.

      let me know what you think 🙂 Def try it when you have a moment! It’s a lovely scent! 🙂 I def love “old lady” scents too! Have you tried Lush Ginger? It’s soooo good!

    I wore DK Black Cashmere and then they quit making it. Loved it back then but I think it’s too heavy for me now.
