My Perfume Collection

So I have been meaning to do this post for quite some time.  Here is the Midwest we have started to have a few days of warmer temps (yes, I know it’s only February!!) and I realized that I don’t have any lighter scents in my collection for Spring.  I was looking online at what new scents have come out and then it dawned on me that I still needed to share my favorties with you so let’s get to it…


Ok, so I realized that I have a lot of fragrances with the same notes! Ok, here’s the breakdown.temporary.jpg
Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent is described as an addictive, floral and energetic scent and I couldn’t agree more! This has notes of coffee accord, orange blossom and cedar wood and in my opinion has a slight black licorice scent too (which I love).

Fresh Cream by Philosophy is a great fresh everyday scent that has hints of vanilla. It is described as a sweet & delightful scent and isn’t too sweet. It reminds me of vanilla ice cream and sugary waffle cones mixed together…yum!

Alien by Mugler is hands down my top favorite scent ever! I remember when I smelled this for the first time…instant love. This is my go to date night scent. It has notes of cashmeran wood, amber gris and is described as a warm floral. I don’t usually tend to like floral scents and in my opinion there is no floral notes to this scent. One word that describes this scent is SEXY! Love it, love it, love it!

Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf is a musky (musky in a good way!) scent with notes of jasmine, orchid, ballerina freesia and is described as an oriental scent. I think this is the perfect winter scent. It wears really well on me and isn’t to heavy.


Hypnotic Poison by Dior is my most recent fragrance that I purchased and smells awesome! It has notes of bitter almond, jasmine, vanilla musk, cinnamon and tuberose and is described as a hypnotizing and extravagant fragrance which is so true. The bitter almond brings out the sweetness in this fragrance, but I think the cinnamon helps to make sure it isn’t too sweet.

So these are the fragrances that I have. I didn’t realize until now that most of my fragarances have common scent notes!  Any suggestions for a lightner, spring/summer frangrance?  If so leave it in the comments so I can check it out.

Have a great day.

Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday!  Here are a few things I’ve been loving this week…

I got Black Opium perfume by Yves Saint Laurent for Christmas.  (Thanks hubby!)  There are notes of coffee, vanilla, cedar wood and orange blossom (just to name a few). It is a lovely slightly sweet, sultry, sexy scent that smells wonderful!

Lorac “I’m So Sensitive”  face primer is the first primer I have used that hasn’t clogged my pores or make me oily. It applies with a lotion-type texture that doesn’t feel heavy on my skin and helps minimize my pores.

Bath & Body Works “Celebrate” candle is their “Merry Cookie” scent with a holiday label, but smells straight up like I’m baking cookies!  On multiple occasions my hubby came home & asked what I was baking 😉.  If you like vanilla, butter & sugar cookie scents this candle was made for you!

I like love lemon…a lot!  I started using these True Lemon packs a few years ago and can’t believe I’ve never mentioned them before.  These little packets are in my purse at all times and I use them instead of asking for a lemon wedge in my water when I’m eating out.  They come in little packets (just like sugar packets) and each package is equal to 1 lemon wedge.  You can also use them in recipes that call for fresh lemon!

Okay, so those are a few things I’ve been loving this week.  I hope you all have a great weekend.  I’d love to know about something you’ve been loving  this week.
