Good morning Beauties! Happy Monday (yeah right!)
I have another review. Mmmmm this perfume smells devine!
I first discovered this perfum in October while babysitting for a family friend. Yes, I snooped in her bathroom after noticing this cute little glass cabinet behind the door. This was not at all associated with the sink like most bathroom cabinets are and she had an assortment of perfumes and lotions inside - cute! I smelled this one and fell in love!
This perfume, in my opinion, is the epitome of sexy.
This floral explosion releases a profusion of flowers that has the power to make everything seem more positive. Magically evocative notes immediately awaken your deepest senses, giving you the impression of living life in your own secret garden, away from reality. Sambac jasmine, centifolia rose, cattleya orchid, and ballerina freesia bloom on a base of patchouli.
Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia, Patchouli.
Oriental. Gourmand. Floral.
There are a lot of floral bases here but it doesn't come off as floral to me when I smell it. It is more oriental, like spices.. but it is a sweet smell to me (vanilla)without being cloying or overpowering.. it is long lasting also (which is good as it is on the expensive side). 0.68 oz at Sephora is $50 [however I found a travel size option at my local Sephora for $32]
I have worn Jennifer Aniston's perfume and loved it this summer. It is a wonderfully fresh, clean scent that totally made me think of the beach and warm summer nights.
Sephora describes it as:
Citrus Grove Accord, Rose Water, Jasmine, Violet, Amazon Lily, Musk, Amber, Sandalwood.
Sensual. Floral. Clean.
I have also worn My Place or Yours, Gina by Benefit..it's not available at Sephora anymore which is where I got it a while ago. Fagrantica describes it as: My place or yours Gina is the scent of provocative, modern and feminine apartment, composed of oriental-woody notes such as: pink pepper, bergamot, tangerine, peony, raspberry, lily, Tonka, vanilla and patchouli.
Before these two other perfumes I wore only one... I would scour ebay for this when I ran out. Early college I stopped really wearing it.
Fragrantica describes it as:
Noa is a small planet in your hand with a perl inside. Noa is a transparent composition of flowers, delicate spices, velvety fruit nuances and energizing power of coffee beans. This fragrances is like a tender wisper, feminine and subtle, weghtless, but with a noticeable presence.
Tender powdery top notes of freesia, peach skin, peony and musk lead to floral heart of white flowers, ylang-ylang and rose. The base is woodsy transparent with coffee and incense touches.
The perfume was created by Olivier Cresp in 1998.
That is my little scent journey... What are your favorite perfumes/scents? Have you changed a lot from when you started wearing perfume?
